    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.

    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).

    Looks great Manuele and what an interesting choice. It looks like a mix from the Bücker Bu-131 and a Piper J-3. Cheers, Huub

    On the tiny screen of my smart phone it already looks great. Can't wait to get home in the weekend and see it on a normal size screen.

    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!

  1. Hello Maarten :-)

    Wow! That would be great. I'll send you the address in a PM.

    Thank you very much! :-)


    Hi Milton,

    Hope you're well.

    I realized to day that I have a very interesting e-book on my hard disk entitled "Stoof Driver - Flying the Grumman S-2 Tracker" by Mike Ray (private publication, 2003). It is about 300 pages "thick" and contains a treasure of photos, colour and b/w, many of great quality. Not only of the "Stoof" (S-2) but also the FUDD (E-1 Tracer). if you are interested I will be more than happy copying it for you and the project.

    Just let me know and send me your address so I can send it really quickly to you if you want it.

    Best regards,
    Maarten Brouwer
