846DS has a black artifact on the top right wing tip that moves around on the wing as the aircraft bounces in turbulence. Not a shadow, sun was directly overhead

no fuel boost pump switches

no POH or cockpit diagram

engine sounds don't sound like radials, nevermind 985s

handling is far too twitchy for twin of this size and weight

fuel indicator selector knob mouse clicks are backward. Left click moves switch clockwise. right mouse click rotates it counterclockwise

Label on landing ger clutch misspelled - save "conver" not "cover"

I do hope that all of the listed bugs here are also being reported to Carenado via support tickets, for they do not monitor this "unofficial" site.

Well that sucks. Something on their site made me think this was their preferred place. I'll copy/paste a ticket over there for all of the above

Their documentation is in the root p3d folder.  Mine is here: (although there isn't a full poh, there are some good documents like perf tables and v speed etc)

I think we should just compile a list and send it at once.

Yes found those docs, but pretty sparse. Standby and I'll find a real Twin Beech manual. Will post on this thread.

Okay click here to download a D18S manual

Click here for a short post about the Beechcarft and a link to a book of hair-raising tales about how the poor old girl was mistreated by the military.

The link is kinda buried at the end of the post so you can skip that if you prefer and just click here .

Found the boost pump. It's a manual "Wobble" pump on the floor between the seats.

That's fine...they work well. Be nice if they'd mentioned it was there.

As usual, the pitch of the engine sound changes with throttle.  I will fix it myself when I can get to it. 

The "FUEL WARNING" lights......I haven't found anything that will extinguish them. 

Can only start engines from the cockpit view.  From external views the starter sounds are generated but the props don't turn....hence the engines will not start.  First time I have seen this in a Carenado/Alabeo product.

I haven't had the problem with the fuel warning lights at all and I've done several long flights already. Have to say I'm very pleased with the plane. don't say this often but it may become a new favorite. For me at least.

What simulator are you using?

WOW.. man they blew it on this one... little things that should have been easy to catch well before release. the Wobble pump thing is hilarious. I thought that was a landing gear pump.

 

Sounds are not bad... just the wrong type and not even close to the real thing!  There are several free sound sets for the D18 that are way.. so much way.. better then the stock version.

 

I still dig it though. after they do the usual patch, maybe it'll be a winner. (and I have already sent my probs to Carenado. All of you should do the same. the more they get early, the more they will fix.!!)

Also found ui_typerole="Single Engine Prop" in CFG file. Should be Twin Engine Prop

Flies the same, but I use SPAD.next as Saitek interface and couldn't understand why I couldn't find the Beech 18 in assignment list for profiles.

Now I know why.

Fuel totalizer is missing switch to select gallons remaining vs gallons used

Fuel gauge reads in gallons not tenths. Forward main shows .75 when full, aft mains show .25

Red cockpit lights bleed through roof and shine on antenna in the dark

Autopilot pitch changes aircraft attitude in altitude hold. If you roll the pitch reference down the aircraft has a weird nose down deck angle but altitude stays the same

NAV2 OBS acts like an ILS when tuned to a VOR, sorta. Glideslope bar centers when course is centered

With fuel selectors on front mains, after 45 minutes front fuel quantity shows .75 (full), rear mains show .1. As it is reading gallons not tenths that means we burned about 15 gallons per engine which is about what the totalized was saying (40.7 gph for both).

Ground handling is like a car. No inertia, no tendency to ground loop whatsoever.

Fuel gauge acts as if rear main and front main tanks are connected, which they aren't.

After gauge shows rear tank empty, the front tank starts to show reduced quantity-- all with fuel selector on front main tanks, mind you.

Copilot's fluorescent light dimmer labeled left, same as pilot's

Post lights labeled 'RNAV on NAVI1' and 'RNAV on NAVI2' have nothing to do with RNAV

Carenado never learns, and the community keeps on buying, regardless... if it weren't for the likes of people like yourself and Bert Pieke (and the others whose names I simply do not know, sorry), I think Carenado would have long since gone under... or do too many not care at all?
