New Aircraft Questions

Recommended Posts

I finally found the courage to download some of the wonderful aircraft I've been seeing on the screenshots forum. I've had mixed results. The Dreamfleet 737 (payware) is very nice. My only problem is the lack of reverse thrusters so I can stop the darn thing on a short runway. Does FS2002 have a reverse thruster function and, if so, what is/are the keyboard strokes? The reverse thrusters on the Dreamworks quadrant are cosmetic only.Part II - I've also downloaded two aircraft from the AVSIM library and have had a couple of problems as follows:1. The POSKY 767-300ER looks great but wants to settle into the runway when I load it or try to land it. It also appears to burn when doing this.2. Mike Stone's Caravelle III is beautiful but only appears to have very spartan cockpit controls. I suspect this is my loading error but would appreciate any guidance in bringing in a full cockpit.I continue to be amazed at the power and depth of FS2002. It's an incredibly complex piece of software for under $50. My flight sim days go back to the early stick figures on an Apple II. That was fun too, of course, but who would have thought we would fly this far this fast in computer simulation.HARDWARE - Pentium III at 866 with 256 RAM - I get decent frames with it.

For reverse thrust on all aircraft, hold down F2. The DF737 doesn't have operating reverse thrusters due to the way the 3D model was made, they worked in FS2000 but not 2002.The POSKY problem may be due to the contact points, but I do not know how to deal with that. Or you may just be landing too hard!! :-lol Mike Caravelle does have a very basic cockpit, he usually does try and throw a "quick fix" panel in. I don't know if there are any decent Caravelle panels out there, try a search in the library.
