I'm splittin' my sides reading :biggrin: this as I too received that mailshot but as I already have the MilViz version, passed. If that Regn alone doesn't boost sales, I don't know what will !!

Hey Ricvk - don't go FUKN about with that plane - that's how accidents happen!

There's a Piper PA-28R-201T Turbo Arrow III in Germany which has D-EATH as its reg. Surprised JF didn't put that one on theirs for a laugh. :cool:

Stop it! There's only so much mirth I can take. I need to turn my attention to getting my 737-600 night flight into LOWI. Talking of LOWI, has anybody who bought it from Orbx managed to get it up and running in P3Dv4 without that Beta thing?

Alan, you obviously have (a)either sampled a wee bit too much of the vermilion or château blanc during your recent escapade under the Eiffel with your good lady, or (b) you have too far much spare time in between your flights. But then, Hunter pilots only did short sorties.

Took your recommendation and bought the BAC 1-111. What a pile of xxxx the -500 proved to be. Trim hassles climbing, then spinning out of control. The 300/400 were fun to fly. Ditched it to the hangar!

About a decade ago a pilot landed from the wrong direction and wound up putting his Cessna CJ2 (IIRC) into the water.

His company replaced the totaled jet with a shiny new Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign, with the registration of "OY-WET". Evidently the Danish have a sense of humor after all! :laugh:

Yup, it took a while for the control problem to manifest itself on the 1-11 for me, otherwise I'd have been less inclined to recommend it. So mine is parked up too, but apparently a fix is coming, so it isn't a dead loss, just something to wait on.

Nah, lots of people. Mine went into an uncontrolled roll on finals and ended up crashing inverted, but that was after a few flights with no problems, so it fooled me into thinking it was OK initially and as a result I bought one for my Air Hauler 2 cargo airline, which of course subsequently crashed, destroying the aircraft, its cargo and my airline's reputation too lol. They'll fix it eventually though I am sure.

 I regularly see a C-FUKM and C-FUKR in the skies around Vancouver. Surprised that C-FUKN isn't an active reg.

A friend of mine registered his Light Sport aircraft with my birthday on it, we flew together in it (or I flew it, he was too sick to fly, he just stood by as my instructor).  He was a master on the rudder pedals and taught me how to draw a box in the sky with them.  He owns the Leroy airport near Wilcox in southeastern Arizona.

Guess, now with the FSLA320 and the Majestic Q400-8 due out shortly, this 1-11 and the HS748 will remain in the hangar till C4 make a docu on it !!!

Hasn't happened to me yet, but I have only done 5 flights in it since its very prolonged spell in my hanger waiting for the autopilot fix. Oh dear, looks like it might be headed back there again soon then! 

Returning to the topic, how about EI-EIO? It was a privately owned PA-34 Seneca - not really an unfortunate registration but sounds like a good one for a certain fast food company to have got its hands on for a business jet!

Can you PM me with the details of this issue? 

Thanks

Nothing much more to tell really, I already posted it on the Just Flight 1-11 forum thread about strange handling back in July. I wouldn't mind betting some people are getting strange handling because they haven't disengaged the stick pusher dump valve, which would make the controls act oddly, but that's not my issue, I've definitely got that thing switched correctly and got both yokes engaged too. Anyway, I was landing the 1-11-518-HK - the Rombak variant painted in Ryanair livery - I was coming in on finals at about 450 feet AGL, so almost down okay, when it suddenly went into an uncommanded roll to the left, going completely inverted which I could not counter with the ailerons; being at approach speed caused a stall too whilst inverted, so it ploughed into the ground, and since it was an Air Hauler 2 flight, it was classed as a complete write off crash in which the cargo and aeroplane was destroyed, thus I parked the thing up in the virtual hangar to await a possible fix if the developer could determine what was going on.

I thought it might have been Active Sky's wake turbulence, but I didn't see anything come off the runway prior to me landing or hear anything on ATC (this was at UK2000's EGGP coming into runway 27, so there's never too much activity there anyway). I've not got wake turbulence on very high settings anyway and it's never affected anything else that badly, so I'm assuming something is amiss with the aeroplane itself since I note that a few other people on that same Just Flight forum thread have also reported similar unusual roll behaviour and apparently it is the 500 variant which is exhibiting it. But, having said that, it is I suppose worth noting that Active Sky is in use, so may be at odds with something. I do know that turbulence has to be backed off a lot with the JF Hunter, because I'm still flying my butt off in that thing as part of the Avsim review of it, which is now covering it for P3D V4.1 too of course.

I just tried a circuit in that 1-11 variant in P3D now and it was flying okay, so I don't know if maybe the 4.1 update has sorted things out or maybe even the AS patch, but then again it might just be something which can't always be replicated.

I'll give it a few flights at some point and see if it happens again.

I'll follow this with interest, Alan, for the future. Not that with the QW787, the FSLA320,the MJ Q400-8, I'll have much spare  time to get to this old bird.

Rick,

MILVIZ has the DHC-2 Beaver, this is the DHC -3 single radial engine Otter. Two different planes with the Otter being larger but essentially based on the Beaver design. If you like the old bush planes it may be worth having the two.

Can you imagine the ATC calls "Vancouver Approach C-FUKN Otter  request Flight Following".

Well Done the man for correcting me. Thanks.

Of course, silly me...................all this plethora or variants numbers does fog the brain after a while.

Although, to be fair i did wonder why would two devs bring out the same aircraft but then history has proved me wrong on that score too!

I'll wait to see the Reviews and feedback on this JF offer as I've quite a large collection of their output and they are all gathering dust under the tarps in my burgeoning hangar!:biggrin:

We are also producing a DHC-3 at Milviz. Currently under advanced development.
