Re: FLIGHTDYNAMICS

hello everybody, when i fly with the d-model(HB-DBL) it always turns to the right. in german: das d-model(HB-DBL) dreht sich um die längsachse dauernd nach rechts, als ob die querruder getrimmt wurden, obwohl ich das gar nicht gemacht habe. stimmt da was nicht?? Marcel Real airplanes do that, too! ...

Yeah, it's a top-flight flight model! One of the very best! But the reason the rudder curves from top to bottom, (when looked at from directly behind) is because ABOVE the line of the fuselage the propwash is not striking the tail like it is when it runs along the side of the fuselage. This contribu...

Yeah, even as you wrote that i was about to post something similar.

Anyone want to explain `gyroscopic precession`, `torque reaction` and `turning moment at a distance from the fulcrum` to Mace in German? I don't think he'll get it in English!

Marcel,

If you look at the big picture on page 22 of the manual, it's clear it's not included. Like a lot of aircraft, not every hole is filled, not every switch works, and not every unfilled gauge space has a vlank inserted.

You're dealing here with VINTAGE aircraft! :D

I don't get the question? The rudder is the movable surface at the rear that changes the direction the nose of the aircraft is pointing. It moves left or right, and in flight is one of the main control surfaces of any aircraft. It's sitting like that in the picture because the pilot left it there, o...

If I translate correctly, it's about the curvature of the rudder? I'm not sure if it's a model question, or about the flight dynamics? Or does it refer to the elevators droopping at rest?

Because if it does, yes they do!

On aircraft where the parking brake is part of the main braking system, I was always taught NEVER to start the engine with the parking brake on, but to use the wheel brakes from the cockpit. That would mean releasing the PB before starting the engine - and the pilot appears! Mace, what is the point ...

Youi probably need to defrag the hard drive. best to use an advanced defragger like O & O or Diskeeper Pro. Also, open the scenery menu when you first start FS and UNcheck all the areas you're not currently flying in - even the DEFAULTS. This will ease the burden on the seek heads and may also impro...

Yes, I have both Active Camera and Track IR4, and it is possible to do it with TrackIR, but it's one of those standard MSFS conventions that has stood the test of time and I don't necessarily see the point of change for change's sake. Granted, there isn't much in the way of sophisticated avioinics i...

Sean, you need to switch on the avionics buitton in the Cessna before you switch. If you have a CND startup for theCessna that is the ONLY switch you move before changing planes, then the radios will work. Alternatively - and we've already covered this - for the time being simply create a keyboard s...

All the standard animations are, well, pretty standard. The pilot leaves the cockpit when the parking brake is engaged with the engine off, the doors open with the normal shift+E+1+2+3 keys for the pilots canopy, co-pilots side and passenger compartment, respectively, the overhead blinds can be togg...

Normally, I'd agree, but the VC is no place to be `reaching` all the way across to the other side of the cokcpit to make knob-twiddling changes when you've just been asked by ATC to drop to 3,000, make a turn to 120 and keep an eye on the Cessna at 8 o'clock... Then, it's just a pain in the Safir......

Tramsponder minor `issue`

Not sure whether this is a bug or your intention, but the Transponder codes must be input manually and cannot be auto-copied by acknowledging ATC transmission.

Re: Occasional blurries

First of all, congratulations for such an outstanding addon ! My only issue is that occasionally while flying the Saab, the scenery textures become blurred and in some cases, even the gauges disappear. I've got other freeware as well as commercial addons (Dreamfleet and RealAir) and never had this ...

...or simply set a keyboard combo to start the avionics (I use Shift+A, as it wasn't being used for anything else).

Although an extra switch in the VC wouldn't really affect things much.

Quick query for real Safir pilot

I'm assuming from the absence of a cockpit control in all but the 91D and their omission from the user manual for the other versions that the cowl flaps are in fact ground-adjustable only?

What are the recommended weather and/or flying criteria for choosing open and closed please?

Just a small buglet

SF-3, the Attitude Indicator has a checkmark at the top that should be part of the rotating assembly, in order to calibrate the rate of turn and angle of bank, but it doesn't move - I believe it should function the same as KV-Z!

Suggest typing `lights` into the search engine on the manual as it varies according to model.

Also, mouseclick on the rod above the centre of the dash carrying the light with the coiled flex. Surprise! :lol:

Yep, if it's a problem just create a version-specific calibratino file for the model - remember that the sim sees each B, C, and D as separate, so you'll need to create profiles for each. And a tip if you use FSUIPC: Remove ALL the null zone to start with - 0-0 in the control surface settings. Only ...
