Making the FS2004 Skyhawk More Real

Recommended Posts

So you came home from the Cessna Pilot Center and tried to practice your manuevers in FS2004 only to find that the procedures the instructor taught you don't quite work?Side Slips difficult because of 'excessive' Rudder?Climb out from an airport at 8000 AGL with correct mixture on a hot day produces near stall speeds at 750 fpm?Engine RPM settings in the pattern produce speeds too low due to too much flap drag?Near impossible to fly precision approaches because of unstable pitch?Downward Pressure in anticipation of the ballooning effect when flaps are applied results in a dive or wild pitch oscillations?I spent two days tweaking the performance in the aircrat.cfg file to more closely match my Skyhawk's performance in all stages of flight.I also replaced the Directional Gyro instrument with the optional HSI that is installed in many NAVII Package Cessna Skyhawks. (panel.cfg)Files were uploaded to the library tonight. Search FS2004 Panels for Skyhawk. Now go and practice what you were taught, not what was required in FS24K.Dennis Mitchell

For those who want more rudder control in a Steep Forward Slip, change the Rudder Effectiveness from 0.7 to 0.8.I found this in testing this morning, and I am considering uploading a new version. For those who downloaded, just change this line in the aircraft.cfg file.Dennis Mitchell
