Older post Dornier 27

Recommended Posts

Hello, I remember reading and old post about someone interrested in a good GA aircraft, As I recall someone recommended the dornier and stated something along the lines of "I will open peopes eyes to what aircraft owners have to go through" or something along those lines. Now im just curious what features does this aircraft have to offer that makes it so realistic???Thanks alot

Copied from http://www.aerosoft.com/cgi-local/fr/ibosh...owd80!0,,D10179I think this is more then enough features for me lol... I just got the plane today and I must say i'm stunned by realism...basically if you dont know waht you are doing you will mess up the plane and then you will have to land have the mechanic fix the things you broke * All standard animations like control surfaces, cowl flap, elevator trim, wheels etc. * Control surfaces can be fixed. * Control surfaces are affected by wind if pilot left aircraft and controls have not fixed. * Elevator vibrates during engine start and at low rpm on ground. * All doors can be handled separately (that means lock/unlock, open/close and dumping) * The 2 engine doors can be opened separately as well as the whole lower cowling. * Detailed Lycoming GO-480 B1A6 engine. * New propeller animation for slow revolutions during engine startup. * Propeller can be damaged by ground contact. * Exterior equipment like brake chocks, warning cones, camping equipment, tools, information panel for flight days etc.Virtual Cockpit and systems: * Different panel layouts. * Panels and instruments may be damaged by hard landings. * All automatic circuit breakers and circuit breakers work. * Instruments may be inaccurate, needles may be influenced by vibrations, g-forces or disorders. * Attitude indicator and compass card are driven electrically and have to be aligned / calibrated. The compass card will start to rotate for several minutes if electricity has been cut. * The glass of the vertical speed indicator may be broken. * Junghans chronograph with windup mechanism and timer. * Avionics may be damaged if avionics master switch is not turned off during engine start and engine shut down. * Engine must be primed. * Engine prime can lead to have too much fuel in the starter system. Removing superfluous fuel is possible due original procedure or mechanician. * Engine starter can get overheated and damaged. * Cowl Flap produces drag according to its setting. * Engine cooling is influenced by angle of attack and propeller revolutions. * Engine fires can occur. * Fire extinguisher can get exhausted. * Oil leaks can occur. * Realistic oil consumption. * Engine treatment influences oil consumption. * Engine and gear can get damaged by: o High RPM o Low RPM o Fast RPM changes o Low Manifold pressure o Long engine starts o Low oil level o Fires o High temperatures o Low RPM during descent o Negative Propeller Thrust * If Engine gets worn it looses power. * Propeller can get damaged * Warm weather can cause air bubbles in the fuel system, making the engine stutter. The fuel pump solves this problem. * Cold engine can go out. * Real engine start up procedure, with starter circuit breaker, priming and mixture lever in cut off position. * If engine is not serviced periodically, engine start will get more and more difficult. * Fast changes on engine settings lead to damages. * Propeller pitch can't be changed when engine is shut off. * Oil temperature influences operability of propeller pitch. * Mixture can be adjusted manually. But this is not recommended. When the lever is all way forward, the mixture is set automatically. * Generator only works at 1300 RPM and above. Generator relay is audible. * Fuel quantity indicators are not very precise. * Pitot heat can get damaged if enabled on ground. * Structure and controls can get damaged through high speeds and extreme manoeuvres. * Flaps can get damaged through high speeds or when being lowered as long as the cabin doors are open. * Windows get dirty. * Each door can be locked/unlocked, opened/closed and dumped separate. The latch for the left cabin door can be disabled, so the door will stay open during flight due air stream, and can be closed by shortly lowering the flaps. (Real life procedure after the skydivers left the plane) * Windows of the front doors can be opened. * Ventilation controls are functional. * If you forgot to remove the pitot cover before flight, airspeed indicator will not work, and the cover can only be removed on ground. * Vibration effects through engine, ground roll, stalls etc.Skydiver Dropping: * Skydiver can be loaded on ground (non-optical), will open the door in flight for leaving the plane. Skydiver Flights will be counted and scored.
