    She's a good looking model inside and out with a lot of nice features. Some might think the stall speed/low speed handling is a bit off but according the the CAF SB2C Pilots, the stall speed is about 65kts and the low speed handling is actually pretty good. This model is not far from that in general. The sounds seem a little weak in the cockpit but that can be thought of as what it sounds like with a leather helmet on. The exterior sounds seem quite good. Anyhow, it's a good one in my book, reasonably priced and not too steep a learning curve to get used to. I still have some systems and feature learning to do but I like it already.

    It seems that EU customers are not eligible for the free product offer, too bad. AH's store is only associated with selfy and selfy's page prevents purchases from the EU.

    The only issue I've uncovered at this point is that despite my following the manual on the use of the landing flaps, the system and sounds seem to work but the visual animation of the flaps is not moving when actuated by the proper lever sequence.

    Okay noticed a couple glitches. When doing a mag check, my engine wants to quit when initially selecting the left mag. If I switch it rapidly to right and back to left it continues running. The external skin of the dive brakes is semi transparent when viewed from the cockpit. I don't know if AH did that to enhance the see through nature of the dive flaps with all the perforations, but when viewed through the pilot's canopy this outer layer disappears. (if you look at them with the canopy open the skin is visible on the outer portion of the flap that does not have "glass" between it and your eyeball. (This doesn't happen in the gunner's compartment though.) I did notice a dark tint on the pilot's canopy and this is probably what's causing it. One other thing I noticed is the bottom of the elevators on the tri-color birds is the same dark blue as the upper surface. I know the bottom of the outer wing panels are supposed to be intermediate blue, but I'm not sure about the elevators so maybe they're right? Other than that, flies nice. I'll have to read the manual as I think my first landing was a bit hot. I came over the fence about 125 and then it just floated down the runway till I got down to about 75 and the mains touched. It just seemed to want to fall out of the sky on my first attempt at around 100 so I upped the approach speed. I believe this one will require a little practice!

    I'll wait to get this from Just Flight. Already own the F3F and maybe get some points instead. Screens look nice.

    In installator (P3D) I have this info, looks like mistake and text for B-17 update :- ).

    If you are upgrading from Version 1.5 to version 2.0 please read the following. If you aren't and this is a new install then keep mashing that next button !

    *****
    BACKUP ANY MODIFICATIONS YOU MAY HAVE MADE.
    *****


    Due to the nature of the upgrade most files have been updated or added to since version 1.5. The following files should be backed up only if you have made modifications to them .
    1. aircraft.cfg
    2. B17F.air files
    3. Any user made repaints.
    4. Any user made modifications of AH provided textures.


    Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you need to backup please use the Exit button to exit. We'll wait, we promise.

    Short flight. I agree sounds could be better (and matched better).
    VC is nice, but... no collimated gunsight (come on guys, we know, You can do this!) it looks a little odd in 3D cockpit in 2017 model, not from FS2004 ;- D.
    3D of model very well done, crg. Few interesting animations also.

    Regarding the sound, here's a good video of CAF's Helldiver flying. To me, with the 4 blade prop it sounds very similar to the F4U-4/5 Corsair's I've seen. So I decided to use the freeware F7F's sound pack which may not be completely accurate but it will suffice to give the VC and exterior environment a fuller sound.

    Good idea but maybe Bazzar will do something with this?

    Anyone else having trouble getting the flaps to lower (visually) via the proper procedure? I can't no matter what but I can get the split dive flaps to deploy via the Spoiler (/) key. or am I missing something? Also, with the model Cold and Dark, I am seeing flames coming from the exhaust on both sides when I turn on the battery.

    Helldiver Flaps

    I too am having the same problem. Can't see if it's effecting the flying but I can't see them coming down in any screen view.

    It's interesting to see how we all have slightly different perspectives on the same aircraft.

    I can confirm the lack of animated landing flaps. I also noted aircraft.cfg entries for the leading flaps and was wondering if these were somehow animated as well?

    What caught my attention is the flight dynamics. For such a large aircraft it is quite docile. On takeoff I was airborne in a short distance. Whenever the manifold pressure is about 40, it feels like a JATO rocket is pushing me along. When I try to cruise with reduced MP and Prop pitch, my speed drops to almost stall speed. Best way to keep level flight with the autopilot is an MP of 30 or greater. Quite a handful.

    Textures inside and out are great. And on my system the sounds are great, too.

    Only thing I have yet to figure out is the purpose of the Nav1/Vor1 frequency setting. There is no ILS gauge, but according to the manual it does link with the autopilot. Not sure how that comes together, so its back to the manual.

    Lots of fun. No complaints. Just a general commentary. Thanks Baz and crew.

    Hi everyone, glad you're enjoying the Beast. I will take a look at the flaps but they were all working perfectly on last test. be sure to use the correct procedure and select with the right lever first while the flap control is in neutral - this is very important. Then use the flap control, pushing it back into neutral once you have the angle required showing on the indicator. The flaps will then stop at wherever it was you returned the lever. Glass is tricky. Because we use a special alpha for perforated flaps, it can interfere with glass materials. We are working on it. Sounds I am not sure we would do a lot with as with different settings on sound systems, equalisers and just good old volume controls there are so many results. Also, it depends on where the sliders are in the sim. Anyway, as usual, all irritations will be scratched in due course.

    Regarding the flaps procedure, I followed them right off the bat but no luck in multiple attempts. As mentioned before, I can hear the flap/hydraulic sounds and it seems that the aerodynamic effect is working but no visual movement. Question, are these animations (both the landing flaps and dive flaps) assigned to a particular FSX key control (other than the normal Flaps and Spoiler assignments?).

    Hmm interesting. I've got the prob now. I'll be back with more after this short break....
