Reason

Milviz P-38 RB.

Recommended Posts

Just got it today. And wonder if anyone here has been flying it, perhaps I missed many things here but I guess it is less popular in this forum. I actually experienced an issue and haven't managed to solve it. While waiting for their reply, has any P-38 user ever had magnetos switches issues? I couldn't swicth them to "on" position. I had to use the ctrl+e. Any ideas?

I just installed it. Mixture & prop levers are unstable. They "flutter". Props twitch as the prop lever jumps around. I use a CH throttle quadrant.

Problems solved. There are unlock buttons on the mixture knobs.

Yeah, sitting on the runway waiting for a King Air 350 to take me out I too did not realize the "interlock" was a "feature"...

OK I've got it now. Contrary to the Quick Start Guide, the battery, & avionics also, I think, have to be switched on before the unlock click-spots appear. Fabulous airplane although resource hungry. Frame rates OK but my Orbx scenery seems to be taking a hit.

Just for future information, there is a separate Milviz forum here at AVSIM in addition to their own forums at their website.

Yes sorry for that. I've got a proper support regarding my ignorance about setting up start up configuration via email. I posted this before I received answers to my questions. It's a great product, clearly the best P-38 ever made.

Yeah, MilViz RB P-38 is a great model. It still has that warbird feel to it, but with modern avionics it lets you fly it fully in IFR similar manner to A2A civilian P-51, if you like to. Or just buzz the skies airshow style with ORBX England with freeware Duxford, for example. Some GA Cessna or Beech feels sooooo sloooow and cumbersome after this :P

Correction: Just the battery has to be switched on. The scenery issue was unrelated. It is an excellent airplane!
