DHC-2 Beaver download

Recommended Posts

I just know enough about this to get into trouble. I downloaded the Fred Banting DHC-2 Beaver 3 Pack. Everything went OK and all three versions are in the 2002 aircraft folders. However the aircraft do not show up in the FS2002 "Select Aircraft" window. Can anyone tell me where I went wrong and how to fix this?

I haven't had success with these models. I've added lots of 3rd party aircraft with success. But these Otter and Beaver models crashed my sim, locked up the program so tight I had to do a reboot from the reset button. And XP doesn't like that too much.Had trouble with some of the gauges loading too.Maybe I did something wrong, but.........Maybe I didn't unzip all of them. Maybe that happened to you.You can also check all the .cfg files to see if a line needs to be edited.So far, the Otter and Beaver are still in an outside folder waiting for me to take another look at what went wrong.Rick

If you're using Fred's original pack (beaver7.zip) it was originally for FS2000, and so doesn't have all the details needed to show up in the FS2002 menu. Here's a comparison between the two aircraft.cfg files:First, the original DHC-2 wheel version:{fltsim.0}title=DHC-2 Beaver [wheel]sim=Bvr7Wmodel=panel=sound=texture=kb_checklists=Beaverw_checkkb_reference=Beaverw_refatc_id_enable=0atc_id=CG-DVYeditable=0{forcefeedback}gear_bump_nose_magnitude=6000 ; 0 - 10000gear_bump_nose_direction=18000 ; 0 - 35999 degreesgear_bump_nose_duration=250000 ; in microsecondsgear_bump_left_magnitude=6000gear_bump_left_direction=35500gear_bump_left_duration=250000gear_bump_right_magnitude=6000gear_bump_right_direction=00500gear_bump_right_duration=250000ground_bumps_magnitude1=3250ground_bumps_angle1=8900ground_bumps_intercept1=5.0ground_bumps_slope1=0.48ground_bumps_magnitude2=750ground_bumps_angle2=9100ground_bumps_intercept2=0.075ground_bumps_slope2=1.0crash_magnitude1=10000crash_direction1=01000crash_magnitude2=10000crash_direction2=9000crash_period2=75000crash_duration2=2500000{WEIGHT_AND_BALANCE}empty_weight=3000 // (pounds), Max Gross 5100reference_datum_position=0, 0, 0 // (feet) distance from FlightSim Reference position: (1/4 chord, centerline, waterline)empty_weight_CG_position=0, 0, 0 // (feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from specified datummax_number_of_stations=10;MAX station loads (plus fuel) 2100 lbs.;Weight (lbs), long, lat, vert positions from datum (feet)station_load.0= 175, 0.7, 1.1, -0.6 //Pilotstation_load.1= 0, 0.7, -1.1, -0.6 //Front Passengerstation_load.2= 625, -1.6, 0.0, -0.6 //Freight Forwardstation_load.3= 0, -4.7, 0.0, -0.6 //Freight Rearstation_load.4= 100, -6.5, 0, -1.5 //Emergency equipmentstation_load.5= 0, -7.8, 0, 1.0 //Baggage compartment{electrical}max_battery_voltage=24.0generator_alternator_voltage=28.0max_generator_alternator_amps=50.0;BusType, MaxAmpLoad, MinVoltage;BusTypes:0=MainBus,1=AvionicsBus,2=BatteryBus,3=HotBatteryBus,4-7=Generator/AlternatorBus(1-4)avionics_bus =0, 10, 17.0avionics =1, 5 , 17.0pitot_heat =0, 2 , 17.0additional_system =0, 10, 17.0fuel_pump =0, 5 , 17.0starter1 =0, 20, 17.0light_nav =0, 5 , 17.0light_landing =0, 5 , 17.0light_strobe =0, 5 , 17.0light_panel =0, 5 , 17.0flap_motor =3, 0, 0Now the same thing (well, same aircraft, different livery) in FS2002:{fltsim.0}title=U.S. ARMY U-6 82005sim=bvr7wmodel=panel=sound=texture=army2checklists=kb_checklists=Beaverw_checkkb_reference=Beaverw_refatc_id=005ui_manufacturer=de Havillandui_type=U-6 ui_variation=Army #82005description=Military version of the de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver MkI.

I had them installed once, and they flew OK, except that I could not make the panels load, so I deleted and re-downloaded. Thanks for the help. Ted
