    I don't know about the other person however the ground loop effect is not so much the plane its self as accu-feel from A2A providing a little to much fuselage drag in a crosswind landing. It makes it easy to over correct the wing tip will hit the ground or you will ground loop. Yes the tailwheel was locked and I did correct for crosswind. Its similar to landing the default Microsoft J3 cub in a crosswind where it wants to flip at low speed just before stopping.

    Duct tape and superglue work best for me.

    The manual was never a problem for me there are lots of sights to find a free version of the POH and if you can't find it by the plane you can normally find it by looking up the engine like someone already stated. I also found a free version of the checklist and it would be simple for someone to port over and put it into place. I flew for a while last night and I did re-download the staggerwing and the compass was fixed as someone else stated. The plane is extremely easy to ground loop as also stated by someone. For me the prop controls Seem fine at max however if I bought it back to half it would slow the RPM then surge back up again almost like it cycled twice or something through the 100% of pitch. Also fuel tank selectors the text seemed to all say left tank on everything. I didn't get to check for proper operation with it and I didn't check after the new download. I will try to do more testing today. Overall this is a great buy at $19.95 as others have stated. Any bugs that exist should be simple fixes and lack of documentation is easily fixed.

    If you need a checklist this one isn't perfect however here is a link. Haven't found a good POH yet http://www.faatest.com/simchecklists/FS9B17SW.ZIP http://freechecklists.net/simchecklists.asp

    It doesn't have a gps. You might get a small one into the area where the radio sits however I like the fact it has no gps. Slow flight was good accufeel had the plane shimmy at around 50mph followed by stall horn No real spin on the plane just a drop in altitude. I did force a small spin. Not sure how real the stall was however I didn't expect it to spin much with a biplane designe.

    Landing was smooth as silk. Something seems to be up with my magnetic compass in the VC. I might reload see if it clears up. The compass is black with no numbers. Can't comment on flight dynamics to much since I havn't flown the real one. However the plane is easy to fly. Did a loop and barrel roll no problem. Going to try some slow flight and stalls.

    Documentation is almost nothing. Exterior sound and paint rocks. Easy to fly so far. Going to try landing Cruise Speed 176kts (203mph) Max speed 184kts

    Some questions I have had

    I have done a little research on the V-Speeds and here is what I have found so far.Vso -- 56 stalling speed/minimum steady flight (landing configuration)Vs1 -- 65 stalling speed/minimum steady flight speed at which the aircraft is controllable.Vfe -- 102 maximum flap extended speedVno -- 138 maximum structural cruising speedVne -- 174 never exceed speedVr --- 60-65 Flaps 1Vr --- 50-60 Flaps 2 (25 Degrees)Vy --- 85 KIASVx --- 73 KIASVc --- 143 KT at 75% PowerVref - 71.5 calculated as a margin over the stall speed - usually 1.3

    Some questions I have had

    Ok I think I get the light thing. I did find a couple of free Piper PA28-235 check lists to compare with my 238 check list. One says:navigation, cockpit, and taxi lights -- on as requiredanti-collision lights -- onThe other saysAnti-collision light -- on (day)So I will assume the Anti-collision (day) means except durring daylight hours.

    Some questions I have had

    I did find the answer top my first question about the run up area in the FSX documentation after an extensive search and assume that my second question is also correct or that both checks can be done in the same area perhaps ?I guess that leaves the lights as required question and any v speed information anyone might have. Thanks in advance for any help.
  14. 1. Ground Check (Run Up) - Where is the proper location to perform this procedure? Is it when you hold short just beffore the runway since you have already started to taxi ?2. Before Take Off - Again is this after entering the runway and waiting for clearence to take off ?3. Lights as required - Hmmmm What lights are required and when the checklists don't say.Those are the main questions I have but I also got the Carenado Dakota PA 28-236 and have been looking to find a list for the proper V speeds and also the range of the aircraft if anyone knows.
  15. Woops.. Found a stupid mistake and just solved all my problems. LOL
