    OOPS, another thing. Is there a way of tying all 4 condition levers together to adjust the propeller pitch a la Flight1 Islander for example (toggle separate and tied) so that it's less of a struggle using the mouse to adjust them? Less realistic I know, but I cannot use a virtual hand or pair of hands to move all 4 levers at once. I realise that there are presets on the monitor for takeoff and cruise... :cool:

    This worked straight out of the box for me (adjusted sequence for a stand alone cfg.): title=USS Hancock CV-19 unit.0=USS_Hancock_loaded, 0, 0 unit.1=VEH_Robison, -600, -400 unit.2=USS_CA-68_Baltimore_1950, 600, 400 unit.3=DD445_ai, 0, -200 unit.4=Kaman_SH-2C/D_Seasprite, 60, -10

    The good news is that we're congratulated on a successful mission! Better still, I'm credited with a hat trick - two 109s and a Heinkel! The fly in all of this nice ointment is that I tabbed out of the sim, before allowing the campaign to advance. I got distracted, did some other stuff and when I realised I had left the sim sitting for some time at the debrief, returned to find that it crashed when I tried to move on. So I'll have to re-start from the last saved game, which means flying a morning sortie all over again. At least I can be sure it won't be an exact repeat - though I hope its success will be repeated!

    I've got a lot of height to lose and am tempted to spiral down - in a damaged aircraft, I'm usually reluctant to go far from the airfield, for fear of the engine packing in. But she's behaved herself on the way here so I take a chance, throttle back and begin a long descent to the west, intending to reverse my course back to Eastleigh when I've lost enough height. This goes according to plan and I'm soon on a long straight approach. The boys have started to report joining up again, but I order them to break away so I can get on with it on my own. The evening sun is making longer shadows on the ground as I come in, gradually losing height.

    Glad it helped Daube. Chief, I'm happy to see you're making progress and enjoying this beast of a plane. There are two major issues with flight simulation on a PC that get extrapolated with complex models like this one. The first is the lack of "seat of the pants" response feeling, with the only feedback being the visual (and some audible) feedback. The second one is the geometry and arrangement of the controllers. Even HOTAS systems, when placed on a desktop will be much different than the stick and throttle of an F-4. Response curves that correct the sensitivity, like the ones used in DCS or FSUIPC often help alleviate this. In planes that I can compare with real life (Cessnas and Pipers) I find easier to control in real life than e.g. the A2A accusimmed models in the sim,...

    Moses, indeed American! Likely a fairly well known designer (well, he and his brother) played a role in this one, although none of his design became a big commercial succes. As i said, I am not 100% sure on the identity, but i will post later uncropped picture showing another type that was here in the thread.

    I think most CFS3 campaign players would prefer a choice of aircraft and that more people might play campaigns if they got it. Even if you can just choose the aircraft and not between squadrons, that would be a big step forward. I got the choice of Spitfire by editing the campaign's techtree so that it has an earlier start date ('Date Month') than the other fighters listed. I haven't tried it yet, but how to get a choice between a given set of aircraft, without having to earn prestige points, is mentioned by Daiwllettii here: I haven't yet tried what I described doing there, but if the facility to pick for an RAF fighter BoB campaign between...

    Bill, Reviewing your reports I now think it's likely the errant sounds may be due to some sort of duplicate setup. The suspect item in particular would be the file "GCA_dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau". You do have that in the Beverley's panel folder and a separate panel\GCA folder, don't you? (Just asking because some simmers habitually copy all such stuff to the main gauges folder.) Two additional tests along these lines come to mind: (1) Rename "GCA_dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau" in the Beverley's panel folder to "BEV_dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau" and edit the corresponding gauge02 of in panel.cfg. (2) (Errant calls still present) Run a file search in FSX to find duplicate instances of "GCA_dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau". Temporarily disable (rename) them and test.

    I think this time it was designed & built by the apprentices, not by Blossom, & I think it must have suffered from the big blister canopy turbulence on the tail unit. Must read the Peter Amos book again. Keith
