Haven'y finished it yet, but I like what I see so far. Nice job guys. I can see I'll have to read much more before I even start her up. I'm really looking forward to this, I'm all fired up now.

Thanks for bringing my simming back to life, much appreciated :)

Pg 28.

"ENGINES
Ensure “Enable auto mixture” is
NOT checked. The Spitfire has a
fully working automatic mixture
control and this will interfere with
our extensively documented and
modeled mixture system"

So is it fair to say that the release is imminent? (Nudge nudge ;))

Thanks for posting! Downloading now. If I can just get some of this college coursework out of the way and have time to read it. . . .

EDIT: Skimmed through and it looks amazing! :D

Cool, i was hoping for a manual before the actual release. Thanks. I've actually been already reading 172R and S official manuals, and out of curiosity i must ask few questions.

1) In 172R, the CAS stall speed is pretty much the same as in SP model, which makes sense, but why the IAS stall speed is 33kias on the R vs 40kias on the SP model? Why the slightly different propeller, even on power off stall, fool ASI so much? If i change the prop on the A2A 172 trainer, the ASI is also changed i believe?

2) If i shutdown the engine with mixture cut-off, and then soon after i start the already warm engine, how the engine can start up with cut-off mixture, as the manual says to omit priming steps. Where do the gasoline come from?

3) Sadly the A2A manual seems to be concentrating only on the R model. But i presume if i change the prop, i can use real life 172SP manual for it?

4) On the page 94, the yellow sticky note (screenshot) says "Max 90KIAS before extending flaps", while manual says 110kias for 10 degrees, and 85kias for the rest. Confusing?

Page 43:
"A fixed speed prop spends almost all of it’s life out of it’s peak thrust angle."
Just to elaborate on Alex's "catch":

There's no apostrophe in "its" in this context ... as it's a shortened form of "it is".

"A fixed speed prop spends almost all of its life out of its peak thrust angle."

But WOW ... what a stunning piece of work this manual is. I'm an ex-graphic designer, so if you can impress a *designer* then you're doing well :lol:.

I was particularly taken by the effort and attention to detail in all aspects of the A2A Spitfire (the superbly layered paint-kit, for example). This C172 reflects the same philosophy ... quality *all the way through*. Well done, A2A - I'm sure sales will reflect your effort.

Soooooooo, I printed the manual on A4, double sided and in glorious full color on the professional printer at work, wire-bounded the lot and I am READY for release! Again, this is by far the best looking manual I've had for a plane in FSX! Being able to leaf through the pages just as you would with a glossy magazine is quite awesome, I have to say! :wink:

It´s a really nice manual, but please, think about to make also a "printer-friendly" version. Printing this manual, with all the photos and logos, can be more expensive than the airplane itself.

OMG!! Some people will bitch and moan about anything and everything and demand that the world change just for them. Enjoy what has been given to you freely. If you don't like the manual or the product, don't freaking buy it. But, please, stop your childish whining.

A2A Gurus, I love the manual (typos and all) and thank you for letting us get an early look at it. This is the release that I've been saving my money for all summer...
