    Choose an aircraft because you want to make it, not because you have to. The end result will be much better. ;)

    Check the panel.cfg if the sections are present (There should be three), if not, copy these over from the default 737 over as well. Not all TDS models are supplied with these sections included.

    Merging is simple, just install the model, then copy over the including FsX files. Make sure all texture folders have a texture.cfg file that includes these lines: Then add this line to the model.cfg for each model: If your viewpoint isn't in the right place you might want to copy the "" section over from the default 737.

    You must first determine if the effect is caused by rapid slowing (too much drag thereby quickly decreasing lift) or too much pitch change (or not enough). Once determined, you can influence the appropriate actions through the flap lift/pitch/drag scalars. EDIT: Also consider if flap deployment speeds are too fast or correct for the type, and 2) is your flap deployment speed correct or at the low end of the band. It is not unexpected to add throttle for flaps deployment for light aircraft but if deployed at max recommended flap speeds you should have more time to respond. Ron Friemuth did an FM for the FSD? 310 back in 2003 roughly and we communicated a lot about that one. Not sure if that is still available for comparison. EDIT2: Downloaded and flew; flap scalars seem to be...

    That is an option also suggested on the other forum Mike, but it seems stuck at 'most likely French' for now.

    I just dug out logbook number one to refresh my memory as to why this airplane scared me so much the first time I flew it. :dizzy: It was December 22, 1975, and I had a total time of 55.9 hours and had gotten my Private license 10 days earlier. I got a chance for an hour of dual in N6086, a C-310, not even an A or a B, an ex military C-310. Wasn't going to turn the chance down, even though all my time was in 150's and 172's. I knew absolutely nothing. I still remember the runway lights going by twice as fast as anything I'd ever seen, but by the end of the hour I had partially caught up and I had that one hour of multi engine time. :untroubled: Then it broke and was grounded. On September 2, 1976, I got to fly it again. I now had 300 hours and was single engine Commercial and...

    Found this photo on a Dutch aviation forum: (Click to zoom in) The guy that posted it has no info, so maybe you can help..? The name on the back suggests it is pre-WW2. It looks like part of an engineer's station inside an aircraft, and it looks like the top of the photo could be the top surface of the wing. What makes this photo strange are the gauges and labels inside: all tekst is in French, but the three swiches bottom right are labelled 'Bosch' and the fire extinguisher also has German text on it. Even stranger: The top left cluster seems to have a pair of almost everything, while the left 'Bosch' switch reads 'Front engine, rear engine, port and starboard' (In French).

    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!

    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..
