  1. I only get partial rudder during flight

    Given your desire to relate your sim experience with r/w flying, it may be a worthwhile investment to get the A2A Cub (and accusim add on if that is still sold separately?) - it was/is a significant improvement in flight dynamics over the default Cub.
  2. FeelThere Embraer ERJ series might be worth a look for small jets that require a bit of learning but are by no means complex.
  3. Minor price/exchange rate variations aside, the only key difference between retailers I could see was flightsim's pilot shop had the 690 Turbo Commander marked down (US$27.97), whereas it was full price everywhere else.
  4. 25% off the A2A Store!

    Odd that this sale seems exclusive to A2A's site. I'm sure in previous years it has been rolled out at PCAviator, SimMarket and the like (?!)
  5. Sea Bases

    In terms of ORBX regions, you'll find plenty of SPBs scattered around PNW, PF and SAK - and add Tongass Fjords if you want to fill the gap between PF and SAK. If you want a further immersion factor in that area, check out Return to Misty Moorings - it's very water-oriented in its offerings.

  7. Baron or Cessna

    While the VC in the Baron is gob-smackingly beautiful, I prefer flying in the 310 both for its lower fps impact and (IMHO) more realistic flight dynamics.
  8. Crazy flip flop starting?

    Had that experience a few times with one of the D18 packages (original by Milton Shupe). Seemed to happen if I hadn't flicked the mag switches before hitting the starter.
  9. IRIS Simulations

    All Iris products seem a fair bit cheaper at flightsimstore (unless there's another price correction!) - got me the new Grob for Aus$14 - so get in quick.
  10. Big discounts on select Milviz products - inc. F4E Phantom (Aus $24.90) and 737-200 (Aus $20.75) http://www.flightsimstore.com/index.php?manufacturers_id=270
  11. +1 recommendation re: Tongass I'm thinking I'll get the Gloster Gladiator - can't go too far wrong for €8
  12. Carenado sale started @ PC Aviator (US) http://www.pcaviator.com/store/home.php?cat=927
  13. ERJ frame rates

    Fingers crossed your problem has gone away, Ernie. I had a look in 'properties' and found I did not have any boxes checked, so hopefully I'm good to go (haven't ventured much beyond VC exploration and a cold and dark start so far). Glad to hear it's not a huge jump up from GA - the FMC looks intimidating, but I'm sure it's just a case of learning the steps. Happy flights.
  14. Serious Landing Glitch

    Is it always flying the same aircraft? If so, which one? Is it always landing at the same airport? If so which one? Could be the plane, but it might also be a mesh/landclass problem if you are running conflicting airport or scenery add-ons.
  15. ERJ frame rates

    Please let us know if this suggestion works, Airernie. I'm wanting to learn the ERJ-145, so if there are little problems that can be fixed up front, that would be good. Thanks
