At last! The whinging stops.

There are those among us who doubted this update (NOT a patch. :grin: ) would see the light of day. There are those among us who thought you'd been abducted by aliens and that we'd never see you again. Well not me! I always knew you'd come through in the end. Well done chaps. Top job. :grin: (Except...

Re: Nothing to do with updates

Terrific, thanks a lot. I spend a lot of time mooching around Darrington/Concrete through to Vashon and back.

Re: BOOK ; 'MY year in Viet Nam"

That's one of the problems with the internet, you can't see the faces. Actually my question to you was a serious one because, unless I misread your post, you've actually flown one of these things.(re-reading it, it seems I got that wrong. :( ) As for Paul, he's an Englishman that deserted us and wen...

Re: Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog flight behaviour

I'm trawling too, waiting for the update and feedback before deciding to buy it or not. Quiet forum lurkers unite! :lol: No news for quite some time. Any news on the development? What unforseen stuff is delaying the release? Is the FDE programmer on vacation? Anything? On this forum, no one will he...

Re: GPS disappears in SafirB

^^^ That was patently rubbish! :roll: Uninstalled the Safir completely and reinstalled it, guess what? Wrong! The fault is still there. Does no one use the 91B? I can't believe I'm the only one in the world with this F***ing problem! That's it, there really is no more 91B, it's the C or D in future....

Re: GPS disappears in SafirB

A break through! :grin: It's not possible is it that you're reading my posts and sniggering is it? This evening I found out that if you switch off the DC switch at some point after starting the engine the GPS and the radio stay on! This is obviously an 'insider knowledge' issue and if I see anyone e...

Re: GPS disappears in SafirB

Just to show I've not really given up on the 91b, I had a thought! Maybe I'd saved, as default, a plane with the avionics switched off and somehow it was being transferred to the Saab. A vain hope I know but in the spirit of Sherlock Holmes I deleted all my default setups and started again. FSX made...

Re: Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog flight behaviour

Re-installed the BirdDog and flaps sound issue has gone away. :roll: Well that's good news Ron, glad to hear you got that little mystery sorted :) @ Jigsaw, The thing I find about forums, is they take an enormous amount of time reading them to catch up with what's going on. Personally, I'd prefer A...

Re: Just a great aircraft

I bought it. and I like it. :grin: With a proviso. I have officially given up on the 91b! I am sick to death of the damned GPS/radio switching off 5 minutes into a flight. :evil: if there's a switch, I've switched it, a knob, I've er..knobbed it! :grin: On the ground, pre-flight checks etc. the rad...

Re: Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog flight behaviour

Hi Tony, My guess is an entry in the .air files is borked but as I can't read them I'll never know. :roll: I can usually track down these anomalies and sort them out but this one has beaten me. tbh, the flaps thing only niggles on an approach. :grin: As for my PC it sounds as if we're singing from t...

Re: Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog flight behaviour

Very thorough test. File size etc the same except 1,114,112 on the disc. (typo?) and date modified same but 12:46.08.
It's extremely good of you to go to this trouble but these sort of things should be answered by Sibwings SUPPORT. :lol:
