    Thank you very much guys, in fact it is post like yours and DenneyA that fuel my brushes. That and the fact that RedWing has created a beautiful model. More to come

    Oh please keep them coming - everything on page 6 is a screensaver !
    I have only been flying GA in MSFS for a few reasons so hadnít bought the Connie even though
    I am a fan of Lockheed aircraft. Going to get it now along with your paints even if only
    to do walk arounds and take screenshots - maybe get the engines started.
    That Seaboard and Western livery is especially fine !

    TDR,
    That new Seaboard & Western is incredible. What a beautiful airline paint scheme.

    I had to look that one up, not having heard of them before. Reading their history, it sounds like you could fly those colors almost anywhere, like picking up elephants in Africa. :-)

    The quality of the repaints showing up here is pushing me towards purchasing it.

    I have a technical question re the Autopilot/Gyro system.
    The Manual says:

    "2. VOR (middle setting) enables autopilot to track VORís for cross country navigation using NAV1 radio."

    My question is - can a flight plan of some sort be set up that includes several VOR's & can the aircraft, when the AP is engaged per 2 above, follow a VOR to VOR series, that is not in a straight line, or do you fly one VOR to VOR, then retune NAV1 to fly to the next VOR?

    Which is a round about way of asking if the L1049 AP can follow a flight plan that is not a straight line?

  13. #163
    You have to fly VOR to VOR and tune the right frequencies and dial the correct radial. There is no GPS like direct navigation. Much more fun this way! You can make a flightplan in MSFS; VOR to VOR. Take a note of the VOR and their frequencies.
    You can of course set a heading on the autopilot, compensate for wind and follow the direct line on the map. But this is cheating....

    Thank you
    Out of curiosity, will it take the basic keyboard AP?
    [Hit Z, AP on, then ALT + A = ALT HLD, & ALT + H = ALT HDG, or variations thereof]

    I did not test it that way but probably not. The autopilot keeps the vertical airspeed and level flight or turn. And follows a VOR radial or ILS.

    Well.
    I took to the piggy bank with a crow bar after succumbing to the videos on YT & the liveries displayed in this forum.
    I did hesitate, with the BAE 146, MD80, AH DC-3 & perhaps the PMDG 737 in the prospective purchase pipeline, and thereby an expensive couple of months in the offing, but I pulled the trigger & "Je Ne Regrette Rein", or whatever Edith said.

    Currently flying on AP from Louisville to Chicago Midway & what a delightful & elegant aircraft this is.

    Learning as I go with the flight on 1 screen & the manual on the other.

    A question, should there be a modicum of flame showing in the exhaust pipes, or none, when cruising?
    I have been tweaking the mixture & prop & MP & now have the spectacular 3' flames down to a shadow of themselves.

    I am aware about wrong wingtips and bad front Columbine logo settings. But Redwing current models have limitations.

    I am not a fan of the dents in the paints so far for the connie. I saw this one and like the cockpit colors and the gloss, but then saw the bump and I've seen this on several paintsa, it looks like it has been through a hail storm That plane needed a smooth surface. Those bumps are silly

    I'd like to eventually paint this one, but besides being too busy with other paint projects at the moment, I can't buy into a WIP project at that price and the fact there is a good chance the texture mapping will change as they progress in the dev cycle.

    Your paint is looking pretty good so far though!
    Steve,

    The developers say the "dents" are in the bump mapping and not in the model

    I like the cockpit update as well. May have to think about this one.

    Interesting video advertising v1.8, but when?

    It's very close, but they wanted to wait for SU9 to drop so they can test thoroughly against it.

    1.8 is available - for the first look, it is nice!
