good morning. i have the baton WASR-RPMQ in the kingair 350.i'm still having to sort through the rules. but i think we can only take pistons or turboprops on these normal legs. i expect to post some rules questions in the rtwr forum at some point.looks now like i could might have taken an in-between airport. because it's over 2 hours. this one looked interesting because there's no navaids on the field. still working this out.

while i'm on to this. this default kingair seems to keep lagging. either i need to get things together with the aeroworx or find some other fast turbos. i know the rules were talking about more variety of planes. so any recomendati's on some fast turboprops?

wrecked it. darn it. baton back at WASR
Hi Joel,Looks like there is some error with the time as well, baton time 13 hours? Do you have some program that sets the time in FS, to sort out the time zones or something like that? If so, you will need to disable that program.As for fast turboprops, the Avanti is very popular in the race, otherwise WWII fighters like the P-51 or P-38 is usually quite fast.

this flight kind of hit the gutter ... as well as the last. had it in sight.... with patterns at 400ft. go figure.those planes look familiar. may as well pick them up.that 13 hours... i don't get that either. i wondered if i hadn't paused it or something. i set that time manually according to UTC. and the posts match the flight time. not sure. it says errors: 1. that must mean a count. some fs time zone flip over or something?

I think the duenna just looks at the FS UTC time, so time zones shouldn't matter. Maybe it's just a glitch after you crashed or something. You don't need to set the time manually though, there is a "Sync time" button in the duenna that sets the time for you :(

Baton Free @ RPUGJust under 2hrs flying time. The jug is a very slow climber, has respectable cruise speed and good dive speed - but it's not as much fun as the pony.

Baton Free - VHHXA little early in the descent but not too bad. Also got called away from the cockpit and missed switching tanks but only lost a few thousand feet before I got back.

Baton Free - VVDN Not a bad leg. Very hazy on my final. Planned the approach pretty good adn got slowed enough to get the gear out and made some Shuttle Like roll reversals on the descent to control the speed.
