Hi TB199,Interesting questions. 1 -- Unfortunately, I'm not sure about too many keyboard commands -- I use the mouse to shut down engines. Hit to unlink the engines, then use the mouse to pull one mixture lever either left or right all the way back toward you to cut it off. You could just use Alt + L then use the keyboard command to pull the mixture out.2 -- I had an interesting and unlikely idea. You sound pretty precise as a writer; is it possible that you're flying slightly below the best approach speed or near stall speed, and letting the aircraft p-effect (the tendency of the propellor to pull the aircraft to one side, into a slip) take over? Doesn't sound very likely, but it was all I could think of. At a certain (lack of) speed in each aircraft the rudder will lose effect, and I guess if you kept the plane in that configuration you would start slipping. Which suggests, try adding 5 or 10 knots on approach until touchdown, or look up the approach speed. Or better yet, are you using any rudder at all on landing? Dumb question, but sometimes it's the little stuff that gets you....3 -- Disc number 1 has all the tutorials obviously but I don't think there's a way to have the co-pilot do everything for you. Just an autopilot.Tedhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1bc1cb5a154551.gifCYHU Montr
