If you don't have the T-6, choose something in the 130-160kts cruise range. We don't want to be left behind. :wink:

I'm trying out Ant's T-28A Trojan, the successor to the T-6  (I'd forgotten how good it is, to be honest).  If you don't fly it with everything firewalled I think it can mooch along in that kind of speed range.

To avoid elevation issues, it might be a good idea.  The NZ scenery as a whole is outstanding and worth the price.

In case this is of help to any other non-Texan owners, I'm using the Warwick Carter freeware T-6 Texan as a multiplayer proxy for the A2A model.  There are some very nice repaints available for it on AVSIM.  You can get it here.

 

Ron, I need your aircraft.cfg title line so I can alias you!  Otherwise you're condemned to appearing as a trike all evening :Tounge:

Sorry to say I'm not feeling well this morning, so will take a break from flying with y'all.  But hopefully see you next week.

HI guys, I'm back from an extended holiday but unfortunately was terribly sick with combined head cold and allergy to the high pollen count we have in our area right now so unable to join.

 

I am getting my new PC very soon if all goes well and will be doing a rebuild of FSX and will add P3dv3.

 

My question is when we do these multi player flights are they exclusive to FSX or can multi players be using P3D and FSX in the same flight?
