Re: Testing the waters, London Zeppelin raid. 01/20/18 ; 17:00 UTC

@Lester-- I think if you could resolve those odd Nasal errors with the A332, it might take care of the problem. The plane should just not be pulling those. I can't think of any reason why this WWI aircraft needs to pull Nasal code from a modern Airbus A332. Doesn't make any sense to me. Happy wet su...

Re: Testing the waters, London Zeppelin raid. 01/20/18 ; 17:00 UTC

@Les: I downloaded the plane from the new link you provided, deleting the older version, first. I'm still getting a lot of Nasal errors, many being pulled from an A332. It doesn't really make sense because I had not yet activated multiplayer. I noticed the altimeter appears fuzzy, then I realized it...

Re: Testing the waters, London Zeppelin raid. 01/20/18 ; 17:00 UTC

@Lester-- My aircraft lacks instruments and flight controls, other than the joystick. I also have no options for liveries. The color of the fuselage is what you described, however. I calibrated my joystick, just to make sure, but to no effect. But I found several problems, so read-on. In looking thr...

Re: Testing the waters, London Zeppelin raid. 01/20/18 ; 17:00 UTC

@Lester-- I think you nailed it! I was flying with the white livery, not the one you described for the BE12. I'll do a test flight with the correct livery/aircraft and see what difference it makes. BTW, F14Tom and I (in the AVRO 504-D) were having a little fun over the English countryside. The fact ...

Re: Testing the waters, London Zeppelin raid. 01/20/18 ; 17:00 UTC

I'm just passing RAF Wattisham and RAF Mindenhall. I find the 504-HD flies best of the three I've tested so far. Did I maybe miss a variant in the BE12? I ask because I am getting the performance out of the HD that Lester said I should have gotten from the BE12, and I couldn't get anything close tha...

Re: Testing the waters, London Zeppelin raid. 01/20/18 ; 17:00 UTC

As I write this I have the AVRO 504-D in the air, flying basically north up the east coast of England. I haven't tried the 504HD yet. We're at 10,000 feet with a KIAS of 74 Kts and a Ground Speed of 88 knots. I think I like it better than the RAF-BE12, even though the BE12 was pretty easy to take of...

Re: Testing the waters, London Zeppelin raid. 01/20/18 ; 17:00 UTC

I'm in! Since I've missed a couple of events, I've been hankerin' for a multiplayer flight. I will admit, however, I'm going to have to decide whether or not to fly a Zeppelin. My experience thus far with them has been, shall we say, stressful and nail-biting. :shock: Nevertheless, please make sure ...

Re: World's Challenging Approaches -5 |VQPR|23-12-2017|16:00Z

Hi Everyone-- I, unfortunately, will not be available for this event. We are celebrating Christmas at my sister's home, about two hours north of us and I won't have access to my computer with FlightGear and my joystick, etc. Hope you all have great fun negotiating the descent into VQPR. I'm looking ...
