    Dreamfleet 727 paints

    >Any plans for the Planet livery.At present no, as I don't have enough reference material for the tail, and I don't have the time to create the logo by hand.>I am looking for a UPS new livery if anyone knows where to find one.There's one that comes as default with the DF 727, at least for a -100. There are no -200s in that livery in the real world, so it would be outside of my realm for repaints.

    Dreamfleet 727 paints

    I have a few touch ups to do, but they should be in the avsim library in the next day or two. Now go get yourself the Dreamfleet 727, you won't be disapointed!All Canada Express 727-200http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/177918.jpgFirst Air 727-100http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/177919.jpgFirst Air 727-200http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/177920.jpg

    New Delta colors

    >The express Jet livery is also confusing. Are they going to go with that wild paint scheme on all the ERJ's?Nothing wild or confusing about the paint job the ExpressJet ERJ-145XRs flying for Delta Connection will be wearing.Taken by an ExpressJet pilot at the paint shop in Saltillo.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/171656.jpg

    New Delta colors

    >I hope this does not come off as a stupid question, but, just>how many planes have Delta painted in the new livery.? According to photos uploaded to the major aviation photo sites, one. B757-232 N638DL. Also, Freedom Airlines has ERJ-145 N856MJ and ExpressJet Airlines has ERJ-145XR N14179 painted in the newest Delta colors.>Does Delta plan to paint most of their fleet in these>colors.?Presumably all of their planes, but I think that was also the attempt with the last two "new" colors.

    quick question for jet jockeys

    One tank in each wing, if memory serves from my days as a fueler. IIRC, they could either filled either using gravity or single point methods.
  8. Left one Avgas (100LL), right one JetA (says so on the top of the tank).

    thrust reverse on Simmer Sky A380

    Aircraft in Flight Sim, by default, cannot be setup with more than one engine configuration. In this case, it means that all engines can have reverse thrust or none at all.The way to get around this for the A380 which only has it on the inner engines, would be set all four engines to idle upon landing, select only engines 2 and 3, and then engage the reverse. That way, engines 1 and 4 remain at idle and only engines 2 and 3 engage thrust reversers.

    Long awaited DF727 update is here!

    >I was hoping a Kelowna repaint would be on that beautiful>727F with winglets.If you mean the Purolator colors, it's coming, I just haven't got the font just right yet.
  12. >Smooth as glass virtual cockpits would be very nice. As would a seperate "panel.mdl" so that I could delete VCs from models without having to beg the creators to make two versions of the plane.
  13. >I tried the reduced setting of -0.25 instead of -0.48 and it>hardly moves the aircraft backwards..That will teach me to keep 10 copies of modified files around without properly labeling them. :) Looks like that value came from on of my early attempts at getting the -200s to come closer to the full 727-200Adv max takeoff weight of 209,000lb. I think that was the one I had to overpower in order to get off the ground in less that 16,000ft of runway, hence needing less reverse power.

    Avsim international stats

    >Am I reading the stats correctly? They seem to indicate that>36,000+ Avsim readers live in the US..............so why on>earth do so few bother to go the Avsim annual conferences?Because I spent all my vacation money this year on a week spent roaming around Kauai. ;)And, for the heck of it, for me, paid flights to Denver and San Diego bottom out around $200 r/t. Granted I can get there for a lot less, ie free, but then, I'm not guarenteed a seat!
  15. By default, the Dreamfleet 727s have nearly 50% power in the reversers. To reduce this, all you need to do is edit the following line in the aircraft.cfg in the "GeneralEngineData" secion:min_throttle_limit=-0.48All you need to do is change the value to something less powerful, I use a value of -0.25 as it still allows for powerbacks but does a decent job of extending my landing rollout giving me something more than 3000ft landings without using the brakes.Of course, in addition to changing all four of the aircraft.cfg files, you also need to change the four aircraft.cfg files in the Flight One Software/Text-O-Matic/data.727100CARGO, /data.727100PAX, /data.727200CARGO and /data.727200PAX folders.
