    Was wondering that myself, in the rw, in a place with lakes but no runways where I need to fly for a living, I may not want the added weight, cost, complexity of an amphibian, but those conditions hardly apply here in virtual world.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, Back when you made that post, I was just giving advice and not really getting into the details of your AIR file. I actually have no idea what you were testing back then though I suspect it might have been the 7 foot propeller. Remember that back then, I had no idea how to build a set of Propeller Tables either. I figure this thread is a learning exercise for me as well since I have no real experience with propellers either (which makes me wonder why anyone would consider following MY advice). I consider this tuning exercise an open book Midterm Exam. Go ahead and change the Maximum Pitch to 30 degrees if you want to see what difference it makes.

    Good evening, Finally got around to installing some BoF Team updates and mods, AND finished the last four missions for 14 May... "title_string"=BoF Kampfgeschwader - Cripple Belgian transport "summary_string"=Männer, herhören! Our Henschel dive bombers will be raiding the city of Leuven, & our job is to bait British fighters by feinting toward Leuven before we continue to Ghent. Over the city, we will target the rail yard & factories before turning back for Germany. Both raids will have heavy escort, so do your job and hope that the British take the bait so we can hack them out of the sky! "objective_string"=During the period from 11 May 'til the breakout at Sedan, German bomber units raided railyards and other transportation centers throughout Belgium, Holland, & France. In...

    This is just an honest question....why wouldn't you buy an add on that has an amphib version but not straight floats? I mean it's flightsim you can do whatever you want, but the floatplane modeling in FSX P3D whatever isn't good enough to tell the difference. Is it sacrilege lol? Like you have RW experience and you just won't touch an amphib with a 10 foot pole haha?

    I installed the bump map plugin for Paint.net this morning. Thought I'd try my hand at some custom bump maps as my home made paint kit for the Spartan is a bit more detailed on the rivets than the original one was. Best way to learn is to jump in and get busy.

    AirDailyx didn't mention what time zone, but I'm getting it! Price is right too!!! Video (28.57) states 34.99 for 3 wks, then to 39.99. Not sure when the P3D models will be release yet, maybe in the next update or on final release. Texture mapping has been changed on all models.

    Great Willy; look forward to that. Of all the FSX native conversions I have done, and each has neutralized spec and bump maps included, no one to my knowledge has actually used the features. The FSX material properties have many options and adjustments available to control outcomes. Since I have not yet seen bump maps applied, I am uncertain if the default settings on bumps are okay. So, we may have to adjust something as we move forward.

    Sounds to me that DaveB solved the issue by deleting the model which essentially removes it from the sim. :mixed-smiley-010:

    So am I, Dave. I can usually resolve FS weirdness on my own and it aggravates me when I can't figure out what's happening. Thanks again to you and everybody else who posted. Always good to get "a little help from your friends". :adoration:

    Fresh from the Navy boneyard... It's dirty, the paint's a little faded out and there's been some touchup done on it, but it flies like a new one.

    Hi Pat, In the RW, the yoke could be switched. I did not upgrade the original model to do that as I did not want two pilots in the cockpit. Landing is best accomplished as a 3-pointer low and slow. Check your landing speeds against the flaps stall speed and give yourself a little margin for wind changes. The Localizer captures fine and she will follow it down perfectly. As WND mentioned, flaps drag is too high and that has been adjusted.
