    Same with me. The only thing is that I have yet to install Silver Wings but the rest you mention: it's all there. Back to my childhood. Cheers, Maarten

    Hi there The CalClassic scenery collection featuring the late 1950s/early 1960s has expanded again a few days ago with the 1960 Lyon-Bron (LFLY) scenery for FS2004. Architects/builders Gérard Benoit, Alejandro Ramirez, Harry Biard, and Bernard Leuenberger have made a great effort to create this airport as realistically as possible. It includes the historic 1930 Aerogare terminal, as well as the new terminal built next to it. The texturing is amazing! The 1960 Lyon-Bron (LFLY) scenery is available here: Cheers, Maarten

    There is a huge difference between the Rebel series and the 7D IMHO (I have used both.); the Rebel series are entry-level camera's, while the 7D is the top model of the Canon APS-C line and aimed at semi-professional users. It is bigger, heavier and has a lot more functions to play with. But if you are looking to upgrade, I would suggest looking into lenses first, as they are the easiest way to improve quality.

    Quick test reveals no performance issues here; 340 kts at sea level flat out and 327 kts with gauges in the green. Aerobatics no problem at all!

    Actually, I have not seen them. Thank you. :-) I was hoping for a side view of that electrical panel but ... dang. :-)

    And finally, at the end of the day the Al Fursan team from the United Arab Emirates performed! First time these guys are in Europe so quite a special display, made even more special by the setting sun and the copious amount of coloured smoke:

    Popped over the border to the south yesterday to visit the 'Kleine Brogel' air force base for the second day of their show. The program was much more interesting than our Dutch shows but sadly got messed up by a layer of fog in the early hours. After a two hour delay the show started but some displays were cancelled. We still had big display teams (Red Arrows, Patrouille de France, Frecce Triccolori, PC-7 Team, Breitling Team and Al Fursani), and solo displays by F-16's (Greek, Turkish, Belgium and Dutch!), MiG-29 and Rafale. Red Arrows: Greek F-16:

    Yes pedals can be used to realistic effect for steering, rudder application yawing at higher speeds and differential braking at slower speeds. This avoid much of the over controlling that occurs when one tries to implement nose wheel steering, which these aircraft were not equipped with. I do not currently have one, but a previous Saitek joystick had dual throttles which was also a satisfying method of maneuvering such aircraft. Cheers: tom

    A couple of comments: Fixed pitch props are quite a bit more difficult to work with than constant speed props in setting up an FS engine as you have added an extra variable. Older piston engines experienced a lot of delivered power loss at high we RPM values due to internal losses, lubrication slinging being one of the real culprits. Even the relatively late and sophisticated R2800 gained quite a bit more than 100 HP between the B and C series just due to an improved oil scavenging system, plus another useable 100 RPM. For FS piston engines the shape of the Friction per cylinder curve (wish there were more points) can be tuned to approximate the HP output ratio vrs RPM. Of course the fixed pitch prop curves make life extra exciting and the overall HP of the engine must be re...

    Finally back on the HMS Bounty as a filler project. Reposting some original screens here (wire frame and fog) as the old ones are gone, and a current one with sails. Just adding sails has been a task with sizing, shaping, billowing, and rotating but its a start. Now to add the running rigging.

    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..
