Thread: SOH Team Project - Grumman Tracker, Trader, Tracer

    I updated the config's

    I updated the configs for all the problems and now can change the freqs. The only one I can't change manually are the UHF comms. When I use ATC they change but don't match the mouse over freqs. I think this is because the ones shown on the panel are UHF and the one given by ATC are VHF.
    I still don't know what the problems were with the lights ,everything has seemed to work ok, though the nav light are rather dim ,but no big deal.
    I also cant figure out the AP ,I don't think the civil version has the same type as the military versions ,I believe they are called P1 and don't look anything like the civil type.No biggy cause I almost always hand fly and rarely use the AP anyway.

    AP Issues Resolved

    The auto pilot on the center console, although hard to use pitch and aileron trim settings, did not work correctly due to a conflict in the aircraft.cfg Autopilot section.

    To get the pitch trim to work correctly, remove these two lines in conflict:

    [autopilot]
    autopilot_available=1
    flight_director_available=0
    default_vertical_speed=1600.0
    autothrottle_available=0
    pitch_takeoff_ga=8.000000
    use_no_default_bank=0
    use_no_default_pitch=0
    default_pitch_mode=0 //remove
    default_bank_mode=0 //remove

    This change is for all the radial released aircraft to-date.

    I will be uploading a new panel.cfg, console.bmp, and cab folder for the other AP changes regarding ILS APR, BC, and NAV/GPS switches.

    Another new suite for Tracer...

    ...this one has a bit of history. It is only one of 2 E-1B's (VAW-111) aboard USS Hornet on the Apollo 11 recovery mission.

    The crew of 011 were first to communuicate with Neil Armstrong after the black out of re-entry. O11 and her crew's primary mission was to locate, communicate and direct traffic to the capsule and to back to Hornet, approximately 1.5 miles from splash down.

    Upload tomorrow afternoon.

    For FSX Users

    The following lines added to the aircraft.cfg of the tanker aircraft will add 800 USG of water to the aircraft AUW.
    This can then be dumped in flight. To do so one need to assign a keystroke to your flight controls, or, use the keyboard.
    The effect is quite good both.


    [Water Ballast System]
    //Tank.n = Gallons, Long, Lat, Vert, iValve
    Tank.0 = 800, -0.3, 0.0, 0.0, 2 //Hopper
    NumberOfReleaseValves = 1
    DumpRate = 500 //Gallons per second

    Give it a try.

    After flying Milton's Tankers and working on a video project, I started researching Fire Bombers and read both Tankers you mentioned go down. I have deep respect for the crew who fly in such treacherous conditions. I saw the 130 crash on the news at that time.

    I just read a preview of the Fire Bomber Into Hell, a story of survival in a deadly occupation by Linc W. Alexander. I must get this book! -Ted "TuFun"

    I've grown up around tankers my whole life. The pilots are a brave group of individuals. I've been at the base when an airtanker has gone down and these guys always elect to go back up to save lives and property. I have that book from Linc its one of the best books out there. I might have some of my pictures published in his next book.

    Yea, i remember the day 123 came down and friends starting calling the house because it crashed here in CO. Yea. Amazing how brave they are, but with the stories they have, its amazing being around these guys.
