    A2A Bonanza in the A2A Store

    Has anyone noticed that it is impossible to tune the middle number on the NDB? The tuner has an inner and outer knob, one does the first number of the frequency, the other does the last, but only counts up to 9.

    I absolutely love the way it moves around in the air. For me, P3D aircraft all fly like they are on rails. There is hardly any correction required when landing in strongish winds. X-Plane is too far the other way, but the bonanza seems to have it about right!

    What does the 2D instrument window do by the way? (the one you select in the MTX hanger)

    Might be a problem that I use FSUIPC for axis and button assignments. I have the "repeat" box ticked for the elevator trim using the trim switch on the left of my Saitek yoke, but for some reason it is really running slowly. Great plane, now please do a twin 😀 Maybe a proper D18S?

    Fantastic aircraft, my new favourite (replacing the Comanche!). Couple of questions for the experts, I take it that it is normal that the yoke moves when pushing the pedals? At first I thought auto cord had suddenly turned on. On my first flight my COM/NAV 1 unit failed (should have bought a better plane ;-)). I shut down the aircraft, selected Shift-7 hangar, and then clicked on the instrument icon which bought up a window showing the panel with all its instruments. But, I couldn't click on anything, or figure out what to do to fix the radio. I did search in the manual, but it doesn't seem to mention the instrument pop up window. Once more, fantastic aircraft to fly! Neil. ps. The trim on my yoke runs the trim wheel extremely slowly compared to all my other aircraft. When trimming on final, I have to hold the back trim button for what seems forever. Is there any way of changing this?

    Accu-Feel v.2 Air, Land & Sea (P3Dv4) Released

    Is accufeel automatically disabled when you open up say the Comanche, or do you have to disable it manually?

    I thought that if the MP is less than the RPM, you are driving the engines. So with the RPM at 2400 on final, a MP of 20 would not be ideal. Have I got this wrong?

    I had another go in the DC-3 (I appreciate this is the DC-6 forum, but I love both), and with a light load, full flaps, gear down, props at landing setting of about 2400rpm, if I kept the MP above 24 I could not descend (in fact, it was accelerating a little in level flight). What am I doing wrong? If I reduce MP to about 20, it flies fine on final, but then the props are windmilling!

    What about the DC-3. No BMEP gauges, so should/must you always keep MP above RPM, even on final if trying to slow (I appreciate that it is probably bad planning leading to all of this, but is it allowed?)

    Thanks, This is really great info. I was flying around this morning in Manfred Jahn's fantastic DC3, and came in a bit hot and high, and just could not lose the speed enough to get below 100kts and drop 1/2 flaps. I was running 1700rpm and 17 MP, and it still would not bleed off (I ended up doing an orbit on 3 mile final (something which VLM F50s used to do at the airport where I control - EGLC - but was then outlawed by the CAA). At what stage is it acceptable to reduce MP below RPM? Only as you flare, or on final as well? I am obviously treating the DC3/6 too much like a modern GA twin. Thanks again for the info. Neil

    Accu-Feel v.2 Air, Land & Sea (P3Dv4) Released

    Thanks so much to Nick and Lewis for sorting out my order (and my own stupidity). I just had a quick flight in Manfred Jahn's fabulous DC-3 in thunderstorms around Innsbruck and it is fantastic. I will try it with the PMDG DC-6 next (which is sorely lacking in touchdown sounds). Should I leave the flight dynamicy bits on for this?? Lots of people seem to suggest that PMDG style aircraft do not need any additions, but I find that the DC-6 flies like on rails. My dream is for A2A to make a really nice twin. I love their Comanche, and spend a lot of time in the above mentioned DC-3, which is really well done. Maybe a proper D18S from A2A? One last thing, I spend all my time in VR (using Flyinside) and don't seem to get any of the camera movement effects. The plane moves around nicely in turbulence etc, but the head doesn't. I suppose this is because it is locked to the VR tracking of the headset. Anyway, Thanks again Neil

    Thanks Nick, I do appreciate that it was my fault, sorry for any inconvenience. If its easier, I'll just buy again. Can't wait to try it (and its my day off work today).

    It was straight from A2A, but totally my fault. I've messaged them, and will wait a little (very hard, but just punishment as it was my impatience that got me in this mess). If need be, I'll just have to buy it again!

    Accu-Feel v.2 Air, Land & Sea (P3Dv4) Released

    Being an ejut, in my rush to buy, I followed a link from a google search for "Accu Feel Land Air and Sea v2" thinking this was the P3d version, and I have ended up buying the FSX version. I now feel like a bit of a moron and have a product I don't need 😪

    Accu-Feel v.2 Air, Land & Sea (P3Dv4) Released

    I am still on v4.2 (can't upgrade yet due to a couple of issues). When you say that Accu-feel didn't work because you didn't have the latest version, does that mean it won't work with 4.2?
