So you wouldn't see a change. You can only get the best out of this aircraft from reading the manuals.

Also what is your mixture setting in FSX menu options?
I got best from my family Snave. My grand father build the first Antonov 2 prototype at Novosibirsk.


I use manual mixture in FSX.

Re: Altitude corrector

Ok so I need to change aircraft cfg then?

I've seen Antonov 2 at Big Bear airport L35, so i figured there must have been some kind of altitude correction due to elevation?

Altitude corrector

I can only relate altitude corrector to the mixture control which I familiar with. No matter how I adjust altitude corrector it does nothing to the engine performance. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

L-19 problems

Ok, Here is the list of the problems I have discovered while testing my poor flying abilities in FSX with L-19 :) 1. Lack of ruder authority during conventional tail up take off. Basically I think that where FM has the most problems in my opinion 2. Bank speed over 25-30 degrees without adding back ...

Re: Handling Issues

....true, rudder authority could, or better should be better modeled/written. The required speed, as of now, is a bit to high, and yes I'm aware of that. But looking within the FSX perspective, and own experience, rewriting the airfile is like opening a can of worms. So with that in mind I just mad...

Re: Handling Issues

Gents, this bird handles perfectly! Some tips to increase your pleasure: One reminder for all....let the BD liftoff by herself, don't push the stick forward. If you do, you actually force to let directional control done by rudder alone (you lifted the tail wheel....the OTHER directional control but...

Re: Handling Issues

OK, I finally get my hands on flying Bird Dog. Well, now I see a lot of problems. Elevator authority in Bird Dog seems like way off. Airplanes suffers from static lateral and directional stabilities . I'm not sure it was a case. I tried to do couple power off 180 and found myself ground looping, whi...

Re: Few manual question

3 . What does "cursing speed" refer to 75 bph, 66 bhp, 55 bhp ? Thanks ! Please don't take this personally, but that has to be the typo of the year ;) Excellent! "Fly faster you #+*§&% aeroplane!" or maybe "Oh Sh**!! Vne exceeded" Yep I type faster than spellchecker can catch it :mrgreen: :mrgreen:...

Few manual questions

Hey guys, Looks like an excellent airplane. I have just started reading your manual. Very nice historical information; however, I have few question regarding aircraft specs Here they are 1. Does "max speed" means Vne? 2. What does "min speed" refer to Vso or Vs1? 3 . What does "cruising speed" refer...

Re: Handling Issues

I used to fly a Piper Cub in the real world and it was never as tricky as the BirdDog. In FSX the BirdDog is flyable in calm conditions but any sort of cross wind and it becomes a major handul on take-off and landing to the point where it can sometimes become uncontrollable. IMHO there is something...

Re: Engine damage?

I'm sure you're right, I've never touched any one of the mentioned engines. But I imagine them to be managed similarly by the pilot, which is my simming focus - not what goes on under the bonnet but what happens if I "floor it", point the nose at the sky holding just above stall speed, without open...
