    I have a friend here in Pensacola who was in the USAF, stationed at Bunker Hill AFB (now Grissom), and worked on Hustlers as a engine mech. NC

    took the pretty bird to fsx, and the trim works as expected. very strange. maybe a controller deal, more research indicated.

    True statement. If one was caught with a camera on base, regardless which location, base security would be on you like white on rice. NC

    Interesting question. I have Virtavia's (Alphasim) P-2V Neptune, but am sure only the prop sound is utilized. Would be cool to have both, i.e. shut down props and use jet engine? NC

    Unfortunately FSX does not support mixed propulsion units by default. There have been a couple of exceptions that I can think of but they required custom gauge coding in order to get them to work.

    I have actually broken out into a sweat, doing night ops. The mind can do strange things, even though it is simulation! NC:encouragement:

    Been wrestling with trimming the lovely Lockheed. All trim inputs appear to result in a nose up vertical stall! Tried resetting controls, keyboard inputs only etc. Using text info gauge to read trim inputs it appears that more than 9 negative degrees required to level the ship, but she doesn't level for long. If any light can be shed, much obliged. Doubtless this pilot error, I juz need to know which error...:dizzy:

    Paul Domingue replied to a thread v3 some pics... in Prepar3D
    You know what I said was half in jest. The fact that a large amount of P3D sales are going to people who just want to derive enjoyment from the SIM is not lost on Lockheed Martin. Don't forget they are a bottom line company with stock holders who want a return on their investment. Lockheed Martin's marketing strategy is brilliant. They can sell a product that they don't have to support in the way a gaming company would have to but believe me, they don't care how you use it personally.

    This may already be mentioned but the exe.xml in p3d v2 doesn't exist by default. Some software addons will install it but the easiest way to install it is if you have a copy of FSX on your system and copy the FSX exe.xml file to p3d. Then open it in a standard text editor and edit it to eliminate anything that pertains to FSX and is not installed in p3d. If you look at the FSX exe.xml file you will see it is pretty straight forward and easily understandable for editing.

    Paul Domingue replied to a thread v3 some pics... in Prepar3D
    PREPAR3D is not a flight simulator it is a dynamically changing environment brought about by new innovations of modern technology and the contributions of outstanding designers to provide a vehicle for immersive teaching and training. To think it is anything else means you take it lightly and just want to have fun. That is absolutely forbidden! Anyways I'm waiting for my next SS check so I can get serious about v3.

    Night traps are a real challenge. Day traps can be tricky, but night ops are a different animal. USN pilots readily admit how their heart races during a night trap. :encouragement: NC

    It's been a long time since I was aboard a Carrier. But this one doesn't look like one to me. - Not at all. No. we didn't have Helicopters nor Jets. But the deck was a heck of a lot wider There's a lot more support vehicles and cranes. There's ton of people on deck. It's a very, very busy place. The number on elevator is used almost as the deck edge elevator. Chipping hammers are always going and there is always newly painted parts of the ship.It sits static on the sea, and no rocking and rolling. Now if you want to catch a wire or "trap" an airplane. there's a lot cheaper ways to do it But if it's realistic portrayal of life on board a Carrier, this one won't do it.

    The CT-114 has been talked about as a possible aircraft for LDR once we get the Navion A out but finding good quality resource material is not easy. There are lots of external shots on the net and a few cockpit shots but they don't show enough detail to identify all the switches, gauges etc. I've never seen a POM or service manual for it either and they are usually a goldmine of information for both the modeller and the FD guy.

    I'll do what I can about that story. Right now I'm kind of busy looking for a new job, but will see what I can uncover.
