    Thats a LOT of magazines ::lol:; I envy you.. But yeah, this time I'm being made to prove my own words and make the plane fly by nothing kore that what it can tell me by just sitting there.. Its got good wide wings with a hell of a curvature to them, and a nice narrow body but an underpowered motor. Its a conundrum an even more so because its a standard design for canvas but it uses metal. Mr. Junkers we know now was a bloody genius, but back then i would have sworn he was nuttier than a fruitcake.

    Yeahh, the German high command really didnt like the monoplane with metal. the previous monoplanes they encountered made by the French were easy to shoot down. Goering flat out said the D.1 wasnt good for anything more than balloon busting which is where the plane became relegated too. The CR-1 which was the D.1s two seat version made some impact, but not much.. Old man Junkers really didnt care though. His eyes were on inter-continental passenger service, and the D.1 and other planes were merely stepping stones to realize his dream. Sadly the German government confiscated Mr Junkers factories in 1936 and began using them to make dive bombers like the JU-88.

    So, over the last couple days I've done a lot with this flight model: too many details to go into here, and i just maile it off to Hans for testing and approval. I do not believe it is final yet, but its at the stage where i am no longer looking at making gross changes, but rather am focusing on minute changes here and there to draw the plane into what is perhaps a much closer representation of the aircraft. I say much closer representation because frankly, theres little to no useable data for a flight modeler out there. theres mostly impressions and pilot reports but nothing definitive. As a comparison, i've also been studying the Junkers CR-1 which was a two seater version of this plain. I merely have to scale what we know about it ( not much ) to a single seat level. Over all,...

    they have a tendency to nose down in a bank beyond what you expect.. Georing relegated them to balloon busting.. he hated the plane.. Oh on the brakes, we had a bit of confusion there too but we got to look real close at the wheels and sure enough theres brake lines going to them. I dont know what kind of brakes they were or where they put them but the lines are there.. I left the brake etremely primitive and not as effective as they could be, but i did so on purpose. no i have to get the landing speed down to fourty mile per hour with minimal ground effects..

    David, It uses RCBerands guages which rely on another persons dll file. Ive never had anything come from sim skunkworks I dont even know what they make. But if i can figure it out with RCBerands help, it cant be that hard.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Other Description: This is the last flight model for the in development Junkers D1. It is an alpha version, and not finished. However its pretty far along. Please enjoy. Its easy to fly and there is still wheel steering in this version. It will disappear later on should you folks wish for me to continue work on this aircraft. Landing speed is a little lower than 140 km hr. and the brakes do not work. Instead on landing, pull up on the elevator to put the tail skid on the ground. The friction will slow you down. Pam To check it out, rate it or add comments, visit Junkers D1 Flight Model V. 2.1.3.zip The comments you make there will appear in the posts below.

    I do, but the point is, the F-22 can do everything this plane can do. It does it slightly slower, but it can do it.. That's why I'm curious..

    HANS!!!! :) :) ..you got a deal, and no worries.. I was flying it earlier and looking it over. There's a buncha things i left out of balance so i'll be working on those first. bear with me. I cant work as quickly as i used too but that also allows me the opportunity to be more thorough. Landing speed seems a bit high as does take off speed. The D.1 had brakes although they were primitive an I need to find out if they were grabby or ineffective.. Over the net couple of months i hope to slowly jockey it towards a more accurate and original type of flight characteristic. Not sure f my words here. forgive me.. but yes, happy to be on it again. will send email in the net day or so. Have a lot on my plate for today and tonight but should have time to think tomorrow ( i hope ) or Tuesday..

    ok, so I just uploaded the last version of the flight model i worked on for this plane. It is still in pre release condition at this point and has training wheels ( steering ) attached. there are no brakes and the til skid has to be used. Landing speed is still quite high as the lift and drag have not yet been balanced in this version. If you people wish, as I said i will be happy to continue from this point and finish this project, but if you do not want me working on it I cant blame you there either.. Let me know.. The download can be found here. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?catid=4 Pam

    Stickshaker. Just curiosity but is the flight model still the one i had started for it?? I had a rather huge breakdown and couldnt continue any more but i'm hoping i at least did ok. I'm thinking i'm in a place where i could probably finish it now as well.. Pam

    So your saying that the person who wrote the fde didnt set up the moments of Inertia correctly?? Hmm.. Wouldnt be the first time thats happened .. this really makes me wish that aircrft were still available so i could run the numbers and give you accurate MOIs all around. Oh nd, I havent run any numbers but yeah, that 45250 sounds about right for a skeeter..

    Welllll, Ok. Looks like i have to eat a little crow.. I'm afraid i dont have the FCS Lancaster and It is not available for purchase that i can find. Even if it was, I'm broken.. If i'm corect however the FCS Lanc was an FS2004 plane. This normally means nothing but sometimes, theres something tweaked in the dlight moels for fs9 that cause problems in fsx. Normally, increasing null zones shoulnt be the solution for a probel like this where the ircraft is sitting still. Causes for problems such as displayed are generally going to be things like, one engine having a higher output than the others, surface drag bing too low, contact point needing adjustment or the joystick being out of whack and specifically in the z rotation. if it was the joystick though i would think that all...

    That would result in other aberrant behavior on takeoff an in the air, but if the fde is set up properly as I believe the lancasters is fot the most part, it would have zero effect on the ground.

    Agreed.. Editing the airfile is no minor task.. so its best to start with the joystic and if it doesnt get fixed look to the airfil, but only if the joystick doesnt fix it. let me get into fsx an check it out on my system.. its been a while so bear with me here..

    It looks like there isnt enough surface resistance combined with the joystick needing some calibration or a wider null zone. My first instinct is to recommend increasing the laning gear drag in section 1101 of the air file. Increase it incrementally till the behavior stops..

    warchild replied to a thread Orbx "Triple Installers" in Prepar3D
    Could someone please recommend a course of action i could follow? Every time i try to log into the flight sim store theyve forgotten my email address and i cant get in. I purchased PNW back in 2010 and wish to move it to P3D but i dont have the installer and currentlycannot afford to re-buy the scenery and am unable to log into my account to download the new installers. Any advice will be considered with appreciation.. Thanks Pam PS, I do have a one year membership to the store which i bought last september. I cant get into that either..
