Re: Air dynamic flight

Finally got round to loading the AN-2 into P3Dv2 and confirmed that everything that hanimichal is whining about is total garbage. The aircraft takes off from a tailwheel if desired, but equally can be flown off a lifted tailwheel and the mains almost as soon as the tail lofts. Change the loadout and...

Re: Air dynamic flight

The mere fact you quote this tells us you aren't fit to interpret 'correct' flight modelling. You don't even understand that what you have highlighted shows the error. By all means carry on making your own foolish and ill-conceived changes - that's the beauty of FS after all - but please spare us fr...

Re: Air dynamic flight

Rubbish. The FS9 .air file uses sections that aren't even active under FSX. I repeat, don't mess with what you don't understand.

How many hours do you have in the real thing again?

Re: Air dynamic flight

I'd be very careful comparing 'many videos' - you have NO idea of the CG, the loadout, the wind speed or direction, and in most cases even the flap setting being used. AOA is a function of all these things, and more. The AN-2 can do, for example, something that is very rare in the aviation community...

Re: messed up activation

Who says two weeks? Why create two topics when one would do?

This and many other questions suggest where the problem really lies.

Re: Altitude corrector

Both of you are partly correct. It's not overriding FSX setting, it IS an FSX setting, available generically through the automixture setting in menu for all aircraft application, or in aircraft-specific form per the aircraft .cfg. So froggy is right that it overwrites the generic checkbox option and...

Re: Altitude corrector

I'm not sure you have a focus to your question? Delving into the .air file is a role for an expert as many external factors can influence, modify or take over the role of it. But the fundamental issue is that you don't seem to understand the Wright R-1820, the engine on which the ASh-62 is based. It...

Re: Altitude corrector

User Guide, p24 Actually the An-2’s pilots use altitude corrector very rare, on some airplanes it was even sealed in FULL RICH position Flying Guide v1.1. p3 You don’t need to worry about mixture as the engine is equipped with automatic mixture control when the lever is in the open position. So you ...

Re: ADF volume control not working

While looking at that could we have a `non-realistic` option - to display the frequency in digital format either on the panel or as a pop-up. At the moment you have to switch the tooltips on just to id the frequency

Re: Is the Artificial Horizon backwards?

While that fix is in the works, could we also put a shout out to fix the tramline course indicator on the UGR compass?

It should slave to the desired bearing and then stay fixed-on-bearing, ao rotating with the compass bezel, not just fixed in relative position as it does now.

Re: Switches not working

What can also work is to set a key to reload the aircraft - it's almost instantaneous and the switches then all work as they should - it also fixes the occasional glitch with the radalt.

Re: Flight dynamics update V2.2 - public beta testing

Yes, I do use the friction modifier via FSUIPC.

Will have a play to see what I can do with the .cfg - Popham is ideal on FS as there's an offset approach required with a boot of rudder to kick it straight right before touchdown while low, slow and fully-flapped.

Re: Flight dynamics update V2.2 - public beta testing

Quick test shows there might now be too much rudder authority - it's out of step with elevator on steep banked turns and seems to have too much power too soon when power is applied. Still don't think the castoring is properly represented (although I have no time in AN-2's, as you know I do have more...

Re: Cargo-Door Snag?

See the same here - and it doesn't stay closed when you use the door close command.

My guess? Faulty latch mechanism. If so, THAT'S realism! :grin:

Re: Antonov Colt.

As others have no problems with the flaps or the smoke, it suggest you ain't flyin' it right, John.

Perhaps some screenshots or a video might enable others to assist?
