    Alonso is back at McLaren, as is Honda. Not a great start though, with only a handful of laps so far. The livery will change at a later date, obviously Honda isn't too keen on the Teutonic Silver Arrow look! The new Toro Rosso STR 10, with Carlos Sainz behind the wheel. Tommorrow is Max' turn! And finally, the Sauber C34 with swede Marcus Ericsson at the wheel. The car colours match his helmet nicely, but they come from Felipe Nasr's sponsors.

    First day of testing at Jerez, time for the teams to roll out their new cars. Lotus skipped the first day, Force India will skip this day all together as their new car isn't ready yet. Most visible rule change for this year: More sensible nose designs. No more twin tusks or ant eater designs! Reigning champions Mercedes started the day with Rosberg behind the wheel of the W06, and he was quick, consistent and reliable (157 laps!) all day. Williams will start the season with the FW37, a car quite similar to last year's design.

    Rob Barendregt joined the project to bring much more realism to the sailing experience. His results to-date have been excitingly realistic. :-) The Bounty is now completely driven by wind speed, wind direction, sails yard arms position, and sails deployed. No engine is used. Sails have 10 positions from square, 5 to the port side, 5 to the starboard side, 11 degrees movement between positions. Sails and rigging are animated. Positions are described as Close Hauled, Broad Reach, Beam Reach, and Running. The Ship heading and speeds, Sail positions, wind speeds, directions, atmospheric conditions are displayed on the Sail Management gauge. Speed over the water depends on those factors. Crosswinds provide lateral movement/course diversions (yaw) and roll/leaning. You may not...

    Roland, If you are asking about the 3 VC panel bmps, they are currently at 1024 X 1024. FS9 VC limits will allow me to go to 1536 but that does not seem necessary to achieve good resolution for the 3 main panel bmps. If you are referring to the 2D panel, Nigel covered that well. Please advise otherwise.

    Roland; Milton has made awesome upgrades to VC/interiors since version 1, so you can look forward to a VC panel of higher detail/rendition in the final model(s). The version 1 2D panel was a temporary/interim item - in keeping with other projects, we will construct the final 2D panel to closely resemble the VC.

    See here: Quick test in FsX: The usual glass issues, the HUD looks a bit odd, VC not clickable, afterburners lights need to be switched on manually but it flies fine, and there's an unbelievable amount of variations to choose from!

    The GPWS has saved my virtual life at least once when I was flying the Majestic Dash 8Q400 :D I forgot to press the altitude select button so the plane continued to descent below the setted altitude of 3000ft. As I was busy with programming the approach into the FMC I didn't noticed it until the "Terrain Terrain" warning sounded at 1500ft. So I was quite happy to have that system :mixed-smiley-010: Greetings Tim

    Yes, for jets, you must be very careful on takeoff and climb-out not to exceed IAS (below FL180) or Mach limits above. You can actually crash by exceeding either at any altitude. Jets will over-speed quickly when you reduce fuel and passengers. No need to use 100% throttle on takeoff. Keep speeds to under 250 until you activate your FS/AT/AP.

    Yes, to Nairobi, Kenya Let's try to keep our legs shorter (maybe less than 400 miles) so more can fly. The practice we need is in take offs and landings, and watching speeds on climbout and descent.

    Hey Rob, heb je al gezien dat de Aeroplane Monthly een artikel heeft over de Uiver?
    Waarschijnlijk ligt het blad volgende week wel in de winkels.


  5. OK, ik zie 't wel.
    Wat voor concert??
    En de Uiver had pech?

    Hey Rob, foto's van de open dagen komen er hopelijk vanmiddag aan; ik heb ook nog even een concertje vanavond dus niet veel tijd om 1350 foto's uit te zoeken. Show viel wat tegen, aangezien het meeste klassieke spul (Inlcusief de Uiver!) met pech aan de grond stonden. Het weer viel ook wat tegen, vooral de eerste dag. Toch nog flink verbrand, maar ja..
