P 51 Mixture control.Which FLY11 button setting?

Recommended Posts

The ROWT Flight Manual recommends using a joystick button setting for Mixture Control(red lever),page 22.From the list in FLY11,which would be the best choices?Mixture DownMixture UpMixture Full RichMixture Full LeanMixture Power(Economy)I'm not managing the engine fuel system correctly as it cuts. out after about 5 minutes of flying.Where is the Fuel Booster switch?Rodger.(Thankyou ROWT team for a magnificant effort)

G'day Rodger,>From the list in FLY11,which would be the best choices? >>Mixture Down >Mixture Up >Mixture Full Rich >Mixture Full Lean >Mixture Power(Economy) I'm not sure that this is the best way to go but if you go this way then 2 buttons will be needed for Mixture up and mixture down. This way you will have total incremental control of mixture.Edit: I'm only using the mouse for mixture and it seems that there are only two positions (just toggles from one extreme to the other - can't drag the mixture lever)so I'm not sure you will get incremental control. In which case maybe any of the above selections will toggle the mixture.Give one a try and see what happens :-)>I'm not managing the engine fuel system correctly as it >cuts. out after about 5 minutes of flying. Are you monitoring your temps?? Sounds like it might possibly be an overtemping problem. >>Where is the Fuel Booster switch? lower left of the panelHappy flyingCheers,Roger @YSSY

Roger,Many thanks.It seems the mouse is the best choice, as mixture control is either on or off.I will check temp control as you suggested.With this aircraft if you don't understand,you get punished and rightly so!!!!Any news on Danny Vicker's Sydney scenery?Rodger.

G'day Rodger,Yeah I use the mouse also as it does only toggle mixture and is easy to operate without distracting too much from flying the aircraft.Another possible cause of engine going quiet is not monitoring the fuel situation. I had just such an experience but luckily I was at 10,000 ft and reselected the other tank and got the engine going again.Funny you should mention Danny Vickers. I have been sitting on 150 Australian airports all populated with terramodels, aircraft, trees, hangars etc but haven't heard a whisper from Danny. We were going to do half each. Danny has done the taxiways for them but unfortunately hasn't uploaded to the library.All the above was months ago and haven't heard from Danny since.Don't know anything about Sydney though. At one stage Danny was indicating here in the forum that it was almost finished.I'm going to have a go at Terrascening Sydney, but I've got a HUGE learning curve in front of me.Cheers,Roger @YSSY

For all Mustang pilots,I have forgotten a very important thing in the manual:we have implemented a special function with the F10 key.Not to use this key may cause some trouble in the cockpit specially in summer time.Have good flights,

Roger,Good luck with your TS.My attempts at Terrascening Sydney were failures.I couldn't remove a huge island I created off Botany Bay!!!!!The coast line up to Coffs Harbour was recognisable,but I was unable to install any roads or other features.I have just bought Photoshop 7(using Classroom in a Book), but Pascal's enhanced scenery is beyond my capabilities.Questions.1 Do you pre-trim the rudder to counteract prop effect at take-off?2 Is manifold pressure controlled using the throttle?3 The ROTW fuel gauge in aircraft does not read the same as the FLY drop-down fuel window.Rodger.

>1 Do you pre-trim the rudder to counteract prop effect at >take-off? You should......... but I really don't feel a forceful pull to the left, to push right pedal against. That's always been a "FLY" negative, IMO.>2 Is manifold pressure controlled using the throttle? I hope so :)L.Adamson

Hi Larry,we are looking at the prop effect, it seems there is a possibility to use it, but the good parameter is not easy to find.Sure, manifold pressure is controlled with the throttle!

Rene,Thankyou for your replies in this forum.You must be very busy answering posts with a P51 connection.It is appreciated.Today I adjusted the propellor control and the throttle to keep the manifold pressure between 30/40 Hg,to cruise as recommended in the manual.(When all else fails read the manual!!!)I was able to fly for 30 minutes before the engine failed.As I was at 7000 ft,I assume it could not be a cold carburetor problem.(Sydney was hot today..... only joking.) Each day I learn a little more.I have been able to cheat,when using other aircraft by turning off the Advanced Realism Options,not so with your P51!!!I have a neighbour who is a Qantas 747B Simulator Instructor.He is very impressed with your cockpit detail.Once again thanks for a magnificent effort. The ROTW TEAM; So much pleasure ,for so many, by so few.Rodger.

Roger,Who's a clever boy then!!!!I was disappointed with the detail I got with the Harbour and Botany Bay,when compaired to Danny Vickers scenery.I think he used a different system to generate his FLY 2k effort,had sand on the beaches and every bay in the Pittwater area.He said it was very time consuming.Love that QANTAS livery.Rodger.

G'day Rodger, >>Who's a clever boy then!!!! Todd Klaus !!! and he's an absolute genius :-)>I was disappointed with the detail I got with the Harbour >and Botany Bay,when compaired to Danny Vickers scenery. The texture sets for Fly!/Fly!2k are different to those for Fly! II.>I think he used a different system to generate his FLY 2k >effort,had sand on the beaches and every bay in the >Pittwater area. Almost certainly hand painted. Andy Dales NZAA shows just what can be achieved if you have the talent and patience. >Love that QANTAS livery. It's in the Library :-) as "Qantas pilot training livery". Do a search under QANTAS.Cheers,roger @YSSY

I tried F10, Alt+F10, Cntl+F10, Shft+F10 to no avail, I figure the canopy is supposed to slide back or something but mine needs some shop repairs. Any good mechanics out there?Robert

Actually, I just checked it again and it works with:F10Shift-F10Ctrl-F10Alt-F10The only problem is that these key combinations may conflict or bring up other add-ons. I think the safest is CTRL-F10, since it doesn't seem to interfere with anything else I'm running.Make sure you've got the dynamicparts DLL and the TXT file. Edit the txt file and make sure there's an entry for the P51.Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!

I've got the dynamicparts DLL, but what *.txt file?!?PuzzledRobert

Hi RobertThe DLL is controled by a parameter file. The name is DynParts.txt and the content is: -- Begin File -- /////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Dynamic Parts by ROTW team june/2002 // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// -- num models - 1 /////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Parts data // // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// -- -- P51D Mustang 68 hood 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 canopy2.wav -- End File --It should be located in MODULE/PC directory.As this file is common for all models that have extra animated parts (like the 707), it should be updated when you want to use all of them.Hope this help youJean

Jean,I just checked and there was no DynParts.txt supplied with p51bc_p65a.zip (the english version on AVSIM). Now that I know what to look for I did not find this file in the b707320f2.zip file you uploaded to AVSIM either. Can you show us what the contents of its DynParts.txt file should have been?You state "it should be updated when you want to use all of them." How do I add your text to a DynParts.txt file that already exists? I have one from the embraer_145.zip package and I would like to know where do I add your text to its contents as reproduced below?Alan -- Begin File -- /////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Dynamic Parts by ROTW team june/2002 // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// -- num models - 4 /////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Parts data // // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// -- -- Embraer 145 3 paxdoor 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 NULL Embraer 145 3 hook 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 NULL Embraer 145 3 railing 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 NULL Embraer 145 3 undertray 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 NULL -- End File --

Hi RobertI guess we forgot to include this file. From your embraer file, do the following with a text editorAdd one to the value (4 -> 5)Add the new section for the P51 before the tag /////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // P51 Parts data // // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// -- -- P51D Mustang 68 hood 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 canopy2.wavJean

AndrewI modified my DynParts.txt per Jean instructions and got a streamio.cpp error so I did some checking and here's what I found so far.1. For some reason beyond my knowledge I don't have a canopy2.wav file as referenced in Jean's mods to DynParts.txt.2. Upon checking B707320F2.zip, the file B7073Bd.POD has DYNPARTS.TXT dated (8/29/02) and a DYNAMICPARTS_V20.DLL dated (7/4/02). The dynamicparts_v20.dll that comes with Embraer_145.zip is dated 10/4/02 therefore I left that file alone. I extracted dynparts.txt from B7073Bd.POD and got the following: -- Begin File -- /////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Dynamic Parts by ROTW team june/2002 // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// -- num models - 2 /////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Parts data // // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// -- -- P51D Mustang 68 hood 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 NULL B707 320B 68 door_left 0,2 0.1,0.0,0.0 0.0,0.0,0.0 NULL -- End File --Notice the P51D section without reference to canopy2.wav. I then edited my dynparts.txt from Embraer_145, starting with "P51D Mustang" through the last "NULL" inserting this before and after changing from "2" to "6" bam, everything works on all three planes except of course the sound file for the Mustang.So if someone could direct me to where I might find "canopy2.wav" I'll be on my way again.Thanks,Robert

OK gentI see we did mess up with this part of the release. And this has been agravated by other planes using the moving DLL.Well, as we will release an add-on with sound and torque, I will see that those files are updated and that the canopy sound file is included.I would appreciate if you can bear with this restriction until this add-onRegardsJean

Attached is my file, just rename it to dynparts.txt and place it in the modulespc folder.It covers the P51, the Embraer 145 and the B707.Good luck!Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!
