    Update Douglas_C-47_Beta_V3.14: Time for a new thread???

    I have followed the original since the beginning and have a folder full of files/updates/etc. At this point I am not certain just how up to date my C-47 is. It would be very helpful (to me for sure) to start a new thread beginning with all files needed to have the plane truly up to date. It could also identify all the "extras" that add quite a lot to the flight experience.
    This is definitely a favorite of mine.

    Nope. I'd greatly appreciate an aggregate post that explains exactly where this work of art is at and what steps are needed to install it all correctly, too.

    Cheers,

    V3.1406 Full package

    Okay I can see that there is a market for this. The link below gets you what I have got on my HD, three models, four planes, 210 MB in all. It should have all fixes discussed here, including the option to activate P3D V4 sounds.

    Hi, in the panel folder you should have a file called panel.cfg64bit. Rename that to panel.cfg overwriting the original one. That should activate the V4 configuration. If it doesn't let us know.

    This is indeed a great idea. At least in my little opinion, for whatever good that might be.

    Now, if I may, a question about an expected update to the panel. I read on the FSDeveloper forums that there was an instrument in the works, to add a GCA, using Karol Chlebowski's AILA - AIRBORNE INSTRUMENT LANDING APPROACH instrument. This would enable a GCA on this, or really any, plane.
    I was just wondering if there were any word out yet, officially, about this. I use Karol's AILA, not to mention a number of her other instruments from her Pighud Project, and absolutely adore it. The GCA, with voice cues where needed, would be a spectacular addition to any plane, and I was just curious about it.

    Thanks for any information about this...

    Indeed, an AILA-based GCA is what we are working on atm. Here is a short vid that Tom posted earlier I believe. There are some glitches we have to iron out still, and the release will be an experimental beta at best.

    Me too

    Also a great big thank you to all for this great aircraft. Have to go and find my Southern Airways repaint and hope its not lost with the old crashed computer. I believe I was smart enough to move it to a fhash drive.

    A very good start!

    In my experience the controller on final would call "approaching glidepath, check wheels down and locked. --- Up, up and on glidepath, begin normal rate of descent" Because of the depth of the radar glideslope beam, the pilot would actually be on the GS center once he started down on this call, despite the slight delay in transition from level.

    After a couple of calls of on glideslope and / or centerline it was not unusual for the controller to say "on glideslope and holding" or "on centerline and holding"

    Also ,"approaching minimums, tower has cleared you to land"

    "AT MINIMUMS -----if runway not in sight, execute missed approach, standby this frequency"

    After the crewed called a missed approach, the controller would repeat go around instructions received previously, such as "climb straight ahead to 3000, left turn to 180, standby this frequency. If no communication, proceed to XYB beacon and hold."

    We are not quite as sophisticated as that. Our first aim is to get the basics right. Already our own pdf Manual is five pages long, and the system has options for various "Realism Challenges" that will really tax the pilot's skill.

    This is fantastic, for an already fantastic aircraft!
