Re: BirdDog update wishlist

I have only one thing that I feel needs sorting...The flaps sounds and synchronisation. The motor keeps running when the flaps have stopped moving. Other than that she is STILL in my top five! :grin:

Re: Smoke, smoke and more smoke.

Best call a halt on this topic now. No response from anyone 'in the know' and it's starting to get a bit 'AVSIM' . Thanks Rob for riding to my defence. :grin:

Re: Smoke, smoke and more smoke.

Thanks John, but as I said in the OP, the cowl flaps are open 100% but other users report smoke from me and vice versa. They swear their cowl flaps are 100% open as well. So there are some mixed messages somewhere along the line. Doubtless Alex or Andrey will be along any moment to shed some light o...

Re: Smoke, smoke and more smoke.

A wider variety than what? :wink: We use practically every GA plane going, from the A2A Cub to Realair's Turbine Duke. Admittedly we don't use tube liners. Maybe it's those that smoke. The only smoke we've ever seen is that which we can switch on and off. Is that what you're thinking of? I'm talking...

Smoke, smoke and more smoke.

It's a weird thing but when flying online, other people are saying to me "You're belching black smoke!" I look at my plane from the outside---no smoke! It seems as if the production of smoke, whether black or grey, is a bit haphazard. We all (people online) confirm that the throttle is reduced, the ...

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

It would be a good idea to drop version number in Sim value - with sim number you will make a lot of problems for people who install repaints as they will have to mind adjusting repait to current version. It shouldn't be a problem if, in the README, there is a note to say 'Check the sim version' Of...

My pleasure. Is there a picture of the underside? I'd like to get that white section right.

EDIT: It's OK, I've found one. What else could it have been other than a Swiss cross? :grin:

Colt news

Bill Womack let it slip that the Colt is 'flying well' so maybe it's getting close?! Something that does puzzle me is that Mathiz Kok of Aerosoft, who is also bringing out the Colt, said something about it being difficult to get in touch with the Russian developers. Could this be a joint effort?

Re: Facebook

No Google translate this time. :) I pop on every day to see if there's any news on the AN-2. It's all very quiet...And no, I'm not going on Facebook to find out either! :grin:
