Nicely done again my friend!! I see your Harvard is getting under control :wink: and you're still showing improvement with every leg...mostly :wink:

A takeoff tip...you'll find that if you use a power setting of 36" you'll accelerate and thus get off the ground more quickly, shortening the takeoff roll and limiting the time that you're exposed to the airplane's somewhat squirrely ground handling characteristics...and to get to 36" the propeller MUST be set FULL FINE for takeoff :P :mrgreen:
Once you're established in the climb with the gear up, reduce power, *throttle first* (when increasing power, it's always RPM first) to 28-30" and 2000 rpm until you're at altitude and ready to pull back to 25/1750 for cruise.
I'm so glad you're having fun with your Harvard!! :D

Ah! I knew you would notice the RPM issue!

I was unaware until after this leg that FSX changed my controller settings. I couldn't figure out WHY I could not get the prop control fully forward or back. I thought I had damaged something. You may have noticed as well that although I fixed my breaks they went back to their damaged state! Most annoying...

Windows 10 is giving me much grief. But I am getting used to it. For example, I did not know that EVERY program for my simulator must be run as an Administrator. I wasn't doing this so my settings were all being reset when I restarted my computer. Live and learn...

Ah so THAT was the directional control issue...that all makes sense now...it didn't before because I knew you were better than that. Still, on any given day... :shock:

I recently went to Win10 and I'm sure it will settle down once you've re-tweaked everything...a couple of times hahaha!
