AN-2

Recommended Posts

I only purchased this a few weeks back... but it's a really photogenic aircraft.  I was also testing HDR with PTA - some things I liked and some I didn't.  I'm back to HDR off with some residual PTA settings.

 

Anyway here are some random shots I liked.

Wow Ryan, those are AMAZING!

 

BTW, how did you manage to install it to P3D? I thought it was only compatible with FSX...

I think you can just browse to the P3D location.

Yep, tried it, seems to work OK.

Nice shots. Interesting, every time i see a set of AN-2 pics at least in one of them he's burning!

Excellent shots, Ryan; and that "ooops" thing happened to me too  :wink: 

 

Btw, I first couldn't get it to function in P3D (I am now on v3.4). Then I read somewhere what one has to do in addition to the installation:

 

First, go to:

"C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\DLL.xml"

 

Open it with notepad and add these lines:

 

  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>SibWings service module</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>SibWings\Service\swservice.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>

 

Save it and everything should work fine.

I've just got the AN-2 recently too. Best value for money aircraft I've bought by far. It's not as far as, say, A2A when it comes to systems coding. But it's not too far off. It flies great and the performance is right on the numbers. I've had some issues ground handling but think I've found some settings that have helped...

The An-2 is indeed a beautiful aircraft!

A fine rendition of the large biplane.

 

As an aside, I recently attended a safety talk by GASCo (General Aviation Safety Council) - Among many interesting things to the fledgling glider pilot (me!) was an AN-2 video, specifically the wake vortices it can generate. Yes, that's not the sole preserve of the large tubeliners! Deadly!  :sad:
