BAC 1-11 panel

Recommended Posts

After an embarrassingly long time since it was finished, I have now finally got around to uploading the BAC 1-11 panel. It will appear in the AVSIM and Flightsim libraries shortly.Installation is by simple exe file and includes an example of the Project Freeware BAC 1-11. Incidentally, the model was made by Paul Springthorpe who is now working with me on the DF727, together with Rui Cristina and Ron Freimuth who were also involved with the 1-11.http://www.blandreynolds.btinternet.co.uk/land1.jpghttp://www.blandreynolds.btinternet.co.uk/pilot1.jpgFor those that have been emailing me about this panel, please accept my apologies for not having made it available sooner.All the best,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...BANNER_PAUL.jpg

Paul,Looks great! No need to apologize to anyone, I'm sure everyone is just happy it did get released and that it is freeware! I tried flying the AFG 738 for Virtual Ryanair yesterday, but didn't like it much, so I am going back to my 1-11 and this is even more reason to do so!MANY THANKS!!!!NickPS - I am looking forward to the 727 package, can you say anything about when that package is supposed to be made available (this year, next year?)?Thanks again

Quality is worth waiting for Paul, Congratulations.I can dump all my pesky FMC based ships and get back to real flight. I dusted off my compass and stopwatch, maps are out of storage, flight manuals tidied up.I can get back to having some serious fun.Now if only there was a panel for young Maltbys Trident ! Any suggestions ?Well doneGeorge

Great work as usual Paul. Also, a great choice of aircraft to put with the panel. It is a real joy to fly. I never did like those airplanes that already know where they're going :-)Dave

An absolutely beautiful panel, Paul. Thank you very much for a super job. Now, if we only had the other 2D interior views ...Stan V.

Even with a couple of weeks passed since it's release, I'm still having a great time with this plane and panel, flying it almost every night. Kind of like an "ahead of its time" regional jet. Thanks so much, Paul.There is one problem I have and I'm not sure if it's just me: with the autopilot, I can choose "HDG" initially, but once I choose another setting like "NAV1" I can almost never get it back to "HDG". When I click near HDG I either get OFF or NAV1.Is it me, or the way it works, or an issue? Thanks,Mike

I thought I covered this in the doc's, but maybe not :-)Before selecting another AP function, you turn the knob to the OFF position first.Now with that amount of flying you should be able to do some short field flying and when you've that sorted, I want to hear you've got into, and then out of, Emma Field :-)Believe me, it can be done.....just be careful of the trees. Oh, and no cheating by using slew mode for backing up before take-off, though I would recommend using spot view to avoid hitting anything with the wings LOL!!!All the best,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...BANNER_PAUL.jpg

Glad you didn't tell me RTFM!>Now with that amount of flying you should be able to do some >short field flying and when you've that sorted, I want to >hear you've got into, and then out of, Emma Field :-) Last night I carried too much speed & altitude into Vancouver International. Granted I had lots of runway but used speed brakes, forward slip, closed throttle, and lots of curse words to parachute onto the numbers. We'll give the Emma Field challenge a try :-)

I wouldn't do that, I never read manuals either :-)>>Now with that amount of flying you should be able to do some >>short field flying and when you've that sorted, I want to >>hear you've got into, and then out of, Emma Field :-) >>Last night I carried too much speed & altitude into >Vancouver International.

We'll give >the Emma Field challenge a try :-) The trick is to use 10% fuel, cross the river at around 1000/1200 ft with full flaps and power to keep it level and slow, around 110 kts!Be carefull of sloppy controls though :-) and don't for goodness sake bounce it or you'll loose half the the runway behind you!All the best,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...BANNER_PAUL.jpg

Hi everyoneI'm turning into a Paul Golding fan! I use the 707 and BAC1-11 freeware panels and also happily paid for the Dreamfleet 737. Worth every penny, or Zloty here in Warsaw.I'll get to the point. Does anyone know if the MD-80 panel runs in 2K2. I've been told 'No', 'No, but it can be fixed' and 'Yes, with the right patch'.If anyone can point me in the right direction I'll be very grateful.Looking forward to the 727, my credit card is armed and waiting!Best wishes and thanks again for the freeware (and payware) Paul.Gavin

Thanks for the kind words Gavin.As for the MD panel. I have it installed with no fixes and find the few issues pretty minor. They are; don't use the the overhead anymore - ctrl+e to start; the wiper and HUD no longer work; the flap positions don't appear correctly in the gauge; the night lighting can only be switched off by re-sizing the panel window (get hold of the top edge and pull it down 1 or 2 pixels after you swithc the lightsing off); the AP V/S and ALT HLD buttons are now U/S, so hand fly to altitude and use the keyboard for ALT HLD.If anyone has a decent fix for any of this suff, please publicize it :-)All the best,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...BANNER_PAUL.jpg
