Hi fellow Bo \0/'s

just patiently keeping occupied and informed while Bo flows through Beta phase. Would love to see the Manual.

OK, so the link below refers to A B36-TC, not B35 V tail, but I think this video's like a book you really cannot put down. I suggest you forgive the super expert if he reminds you of your school-days metalwork or woodwork teacher. (Let your conditioned panic and red-mist waft out the window and out yer mind)

Hope you enjoy and impressed by this as I am,

Thanks for posting the video. Very interesting. Never mind about the school days comment; that's the guy I would want to maintain my plane. It's a pity that there aren't more car mechanics like him too :(


Cheers,
Mike

Like most of you I am anxious for the new bonanza to be released. In the meantime I thought I might offer a suggestion for some Fun flying time. There is a wonderful organization called Mid Atlantic air Museum(MAAM) which can be located on the web. They have a ton of interesting stuff to read but most importantly they have flight simulation airplanes. They have a B 25 and also a DC-3/C-47. Both of these have been upgraded for use in FSX. They are relatively inexpensive to purchase and most importantly all of the funds are donated to the museum. I thought the investment was a great idea to help the museum and the twin engine aircraft was a great addition to my hanger. There are some bugs that need to be worked out but even myself with little or no computer knowledge found workarounds to minor problems. Both aircraft fly extremely well and come with a huge number of repaints. So if you are interested in old warbirds and fun flying aircraft this may be a source of entertainment until the Bonanza release. In addition it's a great cause to support. I flew the FSX air trike from Bremerton national Airport in Washington to one of the carriers based at the Naval base and landed on the deck and then swapped it out for the B-25. It's a real challenge to take off from the carrier deck in aB-25 simulating Doolittle's raid. The DC-3 has a virtual cockpit that allows you to walk back into the passenger cabin where you can serve the passengers coffee and tea using the "eyepoint" settings. So for those of you who are needing a new aircraft to fly this may give you a little something to do during those anxious hours. Have fun with both of these

By that I don't mean
1. Expanded walk around
2. Expanded improved checklist
3. Expanded hangar options
4. improved sounds

These build upon existing innovations. Now don't get me wrong, these are VITAL as well.
Yes of course the plane is NEW so controls etc

When I mean new innovation, I mean something NOT seen before and again I don't mean "all under the hood" where it is not immediately obvious. (This is still important of course because it builds on absolujte realism A2A give you with accu-sim) I mean things I can SEE that are absolutely NEW.

What should they be ? That is up to A2A. I am sure they always strive for innovation which makes them the best.
Much higher wear rate options for those of us who rarely fly more than 20 hours in an aircraft before dying of boredom. (For non A2A make that 3 hours).

My span of attention is dropping with flight sims particularly after the immersion of racing sims with VR and force feedback, P3D is a bit flat. All the newer stuff coming to P3D has me spending more time performance tweaking than flying, and I have a pretty fast i7/1080 rig. A2A is the only stuff now that keeps me coming back and there is not much of it. Anybody seen the Dead Stick ads?

I had more fun trying to return my spluttering, shot up with bullet holes through the gauges, Sopwith Camel to base in Knights of the Sky and that was on the Amiga 100 so I lasted this long with flight sims ;-) In fact my first sim was a wire frame one on a Dragon computer. I do hope A2A can see beyond the current range flight sims.
I feel your pain.

May I suggest a hardcore sim with FS2Crew, for a change.

I find after a few hours with one of those, a nice A2A GA is a relief !

Well Nuts! Just when I decided I had enough aircraft you work up the Bonanza! I had to get out my copy of Brett Henderson's freeware P-35 and try it again. I had put it out to pasture because I could not fly it very well and even though it's well done it's also pretty simple compared to A2A products.

Now I'm looking forward to the release of your Bonanza and another plane that will try my skills and cause me more gray hair!

Either they are having troubles getting it right or they are being waylaid with commercial work as Lewis mentioned because it has been in beta longer than usual. No news yet, it will be here when it gets here as they say. :)
Take care, Brett
