    Works for me in P3Dv2.5. The burner FX requires a stock FSX WAV file: Exp_Gen02.wav. Maybe this file is missing from your P3D \Sound folder ?

    A great choice! I have this book, called "Wreaking Havoc, A Year in an A-20", by Joseph W. Rutter. He drove A-20s in the Pacific. The book has a lot of good stories on handling qualities of this plane. No numbers, but interesting stuff.

    There's a sale going on at Flight Sim Jewels so I've just bought Society Islands (French Polynesia). Nice! So far V1 has only 9 islands (9.99 euros). You'll get the full package at no additionnal charge later (5 more islands). As said before, Tiberius Kowalski's freeware Cook and Pitcairn Island are really beautiful...

    I purchased that when it first came out. Purists kinda thumb their noses at this one cause it's "not a real Heli" but that's fine. . .I'm not a real pilot, lol. Mick Posch did an excellent job and it's a blast to fly.

    Exactly. . .Rich it's not that the airspeed has decreased. . .it's actually because you're nose high. When you approach your landing spot you decrease power and slowly bring the nose up to slow even more, which is ok except that as the airspeed drops off and the heli begins to settle, it settles in the only direction it can with the nose high attitude. . .backwards. Even as long as I've flown heli's in the sim. . .I still get caught in this every so often. Like Nate says. . . .watch your artificial horizon to be sure you're level and not nose up. Takes practice like anything else, but you'll get it.

    Be aware if you want to use other panel mods, you will loose the effects controller code that I included in the pack. The old Reheat_Auto_LOGO.xml code is not needed in FSX, instead make sure you use these panel.cfg lines from my pack - : gauge42=F-8_xml!Engine_FX, 10,10,20,20 gauge43=F-8_xml!Systems_init, 10,10,20,20 //gauge44=Shockwave_lights!SW Lights_gear, 1,1,1,1 ;-------Gauge Carrier Operations v41 Nav1---------------------------- gauge50=RFN_CarrierGauge!TACAN_Navigation, 0,0,100,112,Nav1 gauge51=RFN_CarrierGauge!CustomCatapult, 0,0,20,20 gauge52=RFN_CarrierGauge!Approach_Ctrl, 0,0,20,20,12.8 gauge53=DSD_Sound_Gauge!Sound, 0,0,10,10

    finding that out, some of the old paints refer to an E model.
