Re: News on update?

Shame...

It is a really good aircraft in FS. It would have been nice to have a functional ADF and maybe VOR NAV radio in there...

Oh well...

Thanks

News on update?

Is there any news at all from Sibwings on an update of the AN-2, to address for example the looping ADF ident?

It would be really nice if one of the team could let the buyers know if we can ever expect the update to be done/released.

Thanks in advance, in hope...

Re: Flight dynamics update V2.3 - public beta testing

The 2.4 flight dynamics you said by Alexander Metzger to be ready back in Nov 2013... what is the status of an update with the incorporation of FDE V2.4?

Thanks in advance

Re: Is the Artificial Horizon backwards?

Alexander, I can confirm this...

Using the original poster's real world picture as reference, that is what I see in the Sibwings An-2...

I thought it wrong at first, then I thought, Russian aircraft... anything possible... :)

Tore, strangely enough, I had a feeling I would see you here.ike you no doubt, the An-2 is my typical FSX plane...

Re: Two questions: Cold and Dark & Ground Handling

I certainly will be grateful for any improvement in ground steering, as it is a bit of a pig to 180 at the end of a runway... :)

I really want to keep the castoring tail wheel in keeping with type...

Re: Antonov An-2 Repaints

Just for information's sake, is uploading to known libraries (avsim, SOH, OzX, flightsim and so on) going to be frowned upon?

Just so that repainters are aware of any upload restrictions...

Re: Antonov An-2 Flying guide

Thank you very much for putting this together and uploading for us. This plane requires a complete rethink for me, which is cool. Thanks to all the team for doing it. €16 is a steal for this. In terms of simulation immersion, which is an all-encompassing parameter to me, this blows any recent biplan...

Hi, nice to see someone has taken a shot at doing D-EBED. I saw some pictures in a Classic Aircraft magazine in Germany recently, showing D-EBED as an accompanying aircraft to the recently repainted (apparently) oldest flying Me108 Taifun... A few things strike me as being different on the Sibwings ...

Yes, I can confirm the behaviour of the VOR gauge...

Sorry I didn't pick this one up earlier... just didn't get round to it on time...

And that simulator is a great tool, cheers for posting the link!

Yeah, this aircraft doesn't seem to model the "All fuel tanks" setting, which is not a real world capability anyway. If you have the left tank selected, then the right tank isn't drained, and the right wing gets heavier, the plane becomes imbalanced and starts to roll to the right. You should change...

In total agreement Simon... You couldn't have put it any better... Sibwings needs to reconsider its approach to software activation, and perhaps provide a system similar to the Flight1 wrapper, which requires the validated and licensed purchaser to log in to a secure site to extend the softare activ...

Just to let you know that I have found an anomaly in the directional gyro in the Finnish Air Force D variant. The DG starts to have the jitters after around 5 minutes. It rocks at a high frequency about 2 or 3 degrees either side of the actual heading and won't stop... By the way, you say that the D...
