    Great gauge and lots of fun, but I have an odd anomaly here. I've installed it into several A2A birds, and it works fine in the Bonanza, Comanche and Civ Mustang, but not in the Cherokee or Skylane....

    Many years ago the then technical director of CH Products showed me how WD40 could cure noisy potentiometers. Might work on your trigger. Use sparingly and AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    Apparently they considered it but decided the possibility of damage to the structure was too great. So, not so idiotic, really.

    You could be taking off at too low an airspeed and not have enough rudder authority to counter the torque.

    I live in the San Diego area, and we've had a couple of big fires in the last decade. "Big dry spell" is pretty much the norm here from April through December, and, yes, the extra rain means extra...

    Of course. That's what maps and compasses are for. For getting around, GPS navigation is one of the last ways that I learned, rather than the first.

    Nope, but nice of you to suggest it. This was FSX "Fogged In". The wobblies are all pilot-induced.

    It works! Plugged it into the A2A Cherokee and got talked down at Catalina Island, KAVX. Not the most graceful approach, but I didn't hit any trees and I didn't use the AILA display or the autopilot....

    The video is an A2A vid about the bird WITH Accusim. Current price for the full FSX package on the A2A site is $49.99, so I think the Aerosoft offering is only the basic aircraft. You might look and...

    It's disturbing that two of you canned the A2A Mustang within half an hour. I'd be interested to know what you didn't like.

    Flight Instruction

    Flying is not as easy as it might seem. Aeroplanes don't always behave in "intuitive" ways. I've had a pilot's license since 1967, I've been simming since 1984, and I'm still learning. But I know a...

    Just an observation, but in all the real world aircraft with yokes that I've flown I never got NEAR 90 degree rotation while I was in the air.

    My biggest problem with achieving snappy rolls was simply poor technique. The rolling aircraft has momentum, so a crisp stop requires a quick dab of opposite aileron to arrest the roll. The timing...
