  1. In the aircraft config, reduce yaw stability to about 0.1. That works for most airplanes with that problem. It's a good place to start anyway. The problem is over-dampening and so the plane carries too much sideslip in a turn.
  2. Scott, I'm not seeing 5-6 deg. I can tell you exactly what the angle is. At 5000 lbs, the lift coefficient is 0.917 ( the flaps contribute 0.3 to that ). This occurs at exactly 0.0773 rad ( 4.4 deg AoA ). On a 3 deg glide slope, the nose is up 1.4 deg. If I could figure out how to attach a screenshot here, I would.

    Baron-fde-fix possible?

    An update has been posted in the Milviz B55 support forum. If you don't have access, contact Oisin and he'll hook you up! Changes - Corrected weight and balance for 6 seat configuration - Corrected engine power output and fuel consumption for given power setting ( power and fuel consumption were high ) - Corrected cruise speeds for a given power setting ( the airplane was 5-10 knots fast ) - Changed the zero lift angle of the wing by 1° and raised the viewpoint by 1.2 inches - Added a bunch of extra internal and external views

    Hi Scott, The update to v4 is available from the Milviz support forum for the B55. That is also where the FDE update will be posted in the not too distant future.

    Baron-fde-fix possible?

    I know from researching Beechcraft airplanes in the past, that they do not provide as much information as other manufacturers do, with regard to aerodynamic particulars, and so it is understandable that it would be more difficult to make a flight model for such an airplane. Also, it has been several years now, and there are perhaps more resources available online than there were back then. I did fly it and I see what you mean. I was able to find the POH and service manuals. There are two things to look at, 1. Viewpoint - I was able to improve forward vision by just raising the viewpoint a little bit 2. The zero lift angle needs to be verified, given the incidence, airfoil sections and twist/washout of the wing design
  6. That would be me. I love the twin comanche. It was/is a pleasure to research and make this airplane fly according to what aerodynamics/physics predicts and to match pilot accounts of flying it. Our beta testers seemed quite pleased with it. Of course, we will continue to support it and correct any problems as they occur. On that note, I am willing to review the B55 as well.

    The default AP keyboard commands work. Press Z to turn it on, then Ctrl-H for heading hold, walk away from your computer if you have to. Scott, it's not like the B55 😉
