New aircraft ready

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi forumI have uploaded the staggerwing in the library. It shoud be ready anytime.This is a PC version as it requires a small DLL. I will release a MAC version in 2 days without the DLL. MAC user will only loose the ouside wind indicator.The plane is an exact replica of a real bird still in operation in UK.Hope you will enjoy it.Jean (ROTW)http://www.pixup.com/pub/fly/stag.jpg

I beat you to it, Jean. What a wonderful aircraft: it flies and handles beautifully. And the side view, well it's revolutionary.A quick question: sometimes, on the ground, I lose control with the rudder. the planes starts to turn to the right and opposite rudder does not have any effect. It usually happens when I am taxiing and making turns with full rudder.tony

Hi TonyWell congratulation on being the first.You should taxi at no more than 14-16 Kts and ensure that the backwheel is placated on the ground. This aircraft is very hight on wheel but not very wide and loose grip easily on sharp turn. Hope this is not a big trouble.Jean

Merci, Jean for the great vintage that is the Staggerwind. As i saw in the file library, the fly model and the planel are realy relistic.So i hope, as a poor mac user, i'll benefit all the possibilities that your model offers to PC user.Thanks again and i'm waiting patiently for the mac version.Regards.PACPM G3 B/W450 MHz, 512 SDRAMPCI ATI Readon 7000 Pro

G'day Jean,I've been doing a fair bit more flying these days in the aircraft below. :-) Sydney is now fixed of the watery runway problem but as you can see it still requires populating with models so I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and get stuck into using 3ds Max. I retire at the end of this year so I'll have plenty of time. :-) Thank you for all your work for this sim Jean. Fly! II forever.Cheers,Roger @YSSY

When I get in the air it turns left continuously.What could be wrong?I use the last update and have Stearman installed.Regards,Gerard van Beusekom

Hi GerardSometime, I wonder why we wrote a user manual :-violin You should open the trap oil to cool the oil. This is a simulated feature. Overheating the engine makes it misfire and stop.Now, we have also simulated the prop torque effect, so you have to compensate until good speed is reached.Jean

As another word on that engine, It is the most finickey peice of machinery I have had the opertunity to coax to life. I Had to try to start it fifteen times or so Before I got it right. But I confess that I did read the user manuel :-) and I read about the oil cooling trap. By the way, Does ROTW intend to make any other taildragers? I sipmly love the fogivness on overly-boched-decided-not-to-go-around landings! I think That taildraggers are a lost Idea to be sure, but so much fun to fly!

So I did read the manual but didn't understand that this part of the starting procedure was the only step that had to be done that had to be done manually.I guess that with manifold(25) instrument 7 is meant. And I'm studying How to reach 140 kts.Playing with propeller (33) seems to help.Gerard
