Proud Dad

I can't help but admire proud fathers. I went with a younger mate when he took his son out to the pub for his first beer this week. Quite a landmark for an Aussie! We bought a round of 40 Lashes but the son didn't like it much, so dad drank it. We tried Carlton Black but again, the son didn't like i...

Re: Spitfire K9817 Build

Now THIS was a nasty little piece to build. The pattern is quite complex to cut out and file to clean straight (with a few curved edges) The tight area (finished dimensions are around 5 x 6 x 2 inches) means that the large hole can not be flanged once the sides are bent. This makes it hard to secure...

Re: Spitfire K9817 Build

A good weekend and a day off and some progress on MY stuff finally. Firstly, my hydraulic punch and swage die set arrived and that gave me the opportunity to clean up and fix the hole saw/wooden die swages on Frame 8. The set is easy to use and makes perfect holes and flanges every time. A very wort...

Re: OVERHEATING AT JFK. PLS HELP!!!!!!!!

If you have to taxi long distances you can keep the speed up (not really advisable on the ground!) taxi with short bursts of power and a longer idle (again, not really advisable) and spend as much time as possible taxiing into wind. Apart from that small airfields are the way to go. With the early S...

Re: Flight Illusion Throttle & Mixture

Sorry Nick, late to the party here. Gofly's suggestion is the only way I can see of doing it with the FI software/card. I actually used Bodnar gear for inputs for this reason. The "problem" with Accusim is that whilst most normal GA ciontrols, gauges and inputs are straight FSX/P3D variables, many a...

Re: VIDEO: Spitfire Tutorial Series Part Two

Nicely done. One small correction.. the A2A Spitfire I is rated for 87 or 100 Octane, not just 87. That is why there is permission to use the 12lb Boost. Most people fly her as a "modern" of course and I think that operators would universally take you and a pair of cement shoes fishing if you did! B...
