    I was having a crappy moment at work, defiantly I opened up Screenshots to distract me from my grumpiness, and I was surprised and happy to see my work in a great screenshot, and it changed me right quick. Thanks Noddy!

    The problem I have with the PBR version in 5.2 (and formerly 5.1) is that something is eating away at the frame rates in the VC MDL. FPS starts off fine, but it gradually deteriorates over a short time, until P3D becomes rather sluggish and not very smooth! As a sanity check, I swapped the VC MDL to use the external MDL to replace the VC one, and FPS and sim performance is fine, so something in the VC MDL that is causing a problem. I also had the same problem with the last update that was issued for FSX (I was running FSX SE), where the VC appeared to cause a performance issue as well. (Funnily enough, I also had the same issue in FSX with the Spitfire MK.I when it was first released, but a subsequent update fixed the problem!) :mixed-smiley-027: I'll contact AH to see if they...

    Well having put my brain in and given the matter some further thought realised the problem was with loadings. So I loaded a big 1000lb bomb on to the Vindicator but reduced the fuel loading to 75% and just managed get off the deck in one piece and head off to the target. Just like the film Midway (the latest one). Well worth a view if you haven't seen it. I would still like to know about the wind settings that may be edited in the mission builder if anyone knows. - - - Updated - - -

    I am pretty sure it is the F/A-18 Hornet. It is fly-by-wire, think computer controlled. The F-14 had the conventual hydraulics controlled system. The computer controlled fly-by-wire F-18 is able to sense the AOA, VVI, Airspeed, etc. data in order to fly the launch. When the weight comes off the wheels (WOW) the computer starts doing its thing until the pilot takes over control. It is a very sophisticated system. If you really want to experience virtual carrier operations try DCS. The Supercarrier (payware) and T-45 (freeware) will give you a seemingly (to this USAF guy) realistic experience. Once your gonads are properly prepared by trapping in the T-45 you can try the payware F/A-18C for a humiliating experience. I tip my hat in respect to Naval Aviators.

    Yep, it comes from over correcting in the pitch axis.

    Is that the old FS9 Comet that came as standard? If so much respect for the conversion, (I gave up...:dizzy:) DaveQ PS - It was years ago so maybe me and MCX have got better meantime!

    Just done a circuit and all seems in order. But it's worth remembering the external and internal models add up to a fearsome 260+Mb so it's possible it needs a big rig. Mine's AMD, Ryzen 7 5800x 8-core CPU, Radeon RX 6800XT GPU 32GB RAM. Just under a year old; my old rig would barely load it in 4.5, much less fly it in anything more than slideshow. DaveQ

    This one is tempting me. It looks like they're quoting Wiki regarding performance. That's the only source I can find that matches the quoted 144 MPH (125 Kts) cruise speed, which is actually the economy cruise. Every other source lists higher cruise speeds. I also had to download their documentation package ( ) in order to figure out that they've modeled the H variant. I think I'll think on this a little more...

    From the context and a little digging, I'm thinking Pilot Induced Oscillations.
