    Yeah, she will bite if not handled the way she wants. Kind of like a woman. I'm still getting the occasional crash. Usually from something dumb that I knew better than to do. I'm just curious how many times I'll crash during the race!

    Got a great deal on a sporty little plane. Been flying circuits around a top secret flight test facility. Something that has a really long runway... Lets see, she's tried to kill me seven times now. She is nothing if not persistent... I'll try a few more landings before I decide. Maybe 8 or 9...

    Installed the Nav Panel into the FSX DC-2 with no ill effects. Installed into a couple other FSX planes just to make sure. Could not duplicate. If you take the panel out do the correct prop disk textures return?

    Miss Nellie is a no-nonsense gal who can be a bit aloof at times. An only child, she was raised by strict parents and schooled in a most proper manner. She will emerge to socialize as needed (seen here in the background): She is most comfortable at her desk keeping her ledger in order.

    That's interesting. They are gauges that work in both FS9 and FSX. I don't have that particular configuration installed in my FSX planes at present, but something similar. Will try to duplicate when I get home. Has to be one of the gauges, and they are not all needed. Will advise...

    Found this on a help forum. Maybe worth a try? (Hate to make things worse though). "There's an old little program that may help with problems registering msinet.ocx on Vista. Search for vb6cli.exe and when found and downloaded to your computer right click on the file to execute it with administrator rights and after unpacking and running you have a good chance your problem has disappeared."

    Just to add to Mike's post, imagine Miss Nellie getting "irritated", tapping her pencil on the desk, while taking the extra steps... Not something you need, on top of the airmanship challenges we're already dealing with... :)

    We ask that you do both. The posted jpg and textfile provide an immediate record that everyone can see as they follow your thread. And the authentication is located on the SOH server. The tracking site's record provides the same and more detailed information. And it is located on a different server, although one over which we have no control. Each serves as a backup against the other...in case we have a failure. If you feel comfortable doing just one or the other, then fine. Others have done so in the past. (Note that your having just one version may make the Committee' work a bit more difficult. We mildly prefer having both sets of authentications.) Oops, late post. ...as Paul says above.

    I will "import" the duenna text files into the race tracking site for each leg. While I can find it from the link you posted, it will save me a couple of steps if you post the actual text file.

    Interesting videos. I tried a "coupled GPS" approach a few time when I first installed FS9 some years ago. In a P-38! It worked pretty good. Not sure how auto-land systems work in today's airliners. Is it GPS? I know navy jets I worked on, even the A-7E, have (had) an auto-land system that uses ILS, auto-pilot, and data-link, where a radar system on the ship (SPN-42?) tracks the plane, data-links corrections to the plane, which uses the AP to issue commands to the flight control system. Automatic Carrier Landing System (ACLS). Even in 1985 it worked pretty good, according to the pilots I talked to about it. The system had several modes. One, where the ship just sent commands to the plane to position the "datalink bug" on the HUD, like ILS needles, and in "full auto" it would fly the plane...

    Hi OFF, Not sure if this will work, but it looks possible. I've never seen the problem you are having, but after some Googling, I found an article that might help, HERE. Worth a try in any case.

    Just to start it off, I flew this one last night. I've been flying the Gee Bee from my local airport to Croydon in London (Golden Wings 3). Good way to wring it out and find out problem areas before the race starts. Yesterday, I was flying over Iceland from BIRK to BIHN and managed to blow the engine. The closest airfield was BIHN and it was over 45nm away. So with a rough running and smoking engine, I landed it on the icecap I was flying over. So last night, I decided to fly it out of there. Took off from the icecap and completed the flight to BIHN with the Duenna running. Nice flight even with a bit of a rough landing at the finish. I've attached the race required Duenna graphic and text files. Also here is a link to the online data on the flight: ...

    Hi Mike , Just a quick question . Thanks for a fantastic event and it is quite a challenge Harv and I were being a little naughty and discussion routes , wildcards etc and noticed Flying Bull went for the Canaries we both thought " nice move but missing Africa will mean needing to hit an extra commercial in South America " . Could be a good move , difficult to tell , but I do not see the extra Commercial hit , only see 10 hit . It`s not a complaint , just an observation and maybe an oversight or mis-understanding of the rules , but I definately ruled out tenerife because it`s not a required commercial and would need an extra south america leg to compensate the short cut . Please don`t take as a complaint but as an observation and a quick hop to SUMU and back should fullfill the requirement Once again a fantastic event and not competitive , just great to see so many friends again . Cheers Mike Happy Flying
