    Is it worth buy FSLabs a320

    What? Of course you use the takeover button! Not only in a 'disabled scenario! There are zero, nil, none 'urgent cases' where you would need control addition. IF it's urgent, you call 'I have control' and push the takeover button at the same time. Under no circumstances a dual input is desirable. In the Airbus you even get an aural warning if both pilots are trying to fly the Airbus at the same time.

    How else should this work? Works the same way with a conventional yoke! The advantage of the sidestick is that if you don't want what the other guy does, you simply press the takeover button on your sidestick, and voila you are the only one who's in control. You also get an visual alert and a voice warning who's in control. With a conventional yoke the stronger guy wins, if an incapacitation occurs he can block the yoke etc. That's one of the most basic things you learn when flying an FBW Airbus. IF you want to take control and you don't get a confirmation after calling 'I have control', you immediately push the takeover button. Yoke or sidestick, never ever should both pilots try to control the plane at the same time 😉
  3. Not surprising at all. I know the sales numbers from a dev who sells airplanes for all 3 sims and P3D sells much better than this poll would suggest. Once P3D with PBR will be out, I'd guess the difference will become even greater.

    Question for RW GA pilots: Weights and Balances

    Just tested: TBM with pilot & co-pilot +110lbs fwd baggage, clean takeoff, neutral trim, no pitch input after rotation. The TBM settles at a ~17deg nose up attitude and ~90kias. Try again with pilot only + 1 pax in the last row +110lbs aft baggage, clean takeoff, neutral trim and again no pitch input after rotation. She pitches up to 25deg and stalls…..

    Question for RW GA pilots: Weights and Balances

    Just read the complaints in the Carenado 1900D forum how awfully unstable the plane is in pitch...turns out it's always the fact that the pilots are loading all the baggage into the aft compartment 😉

    Question for RW GA pilots: Weights and Balances

    I don't agree. The stall speed is almost always given at the most forward CG, which means that the further the CG moves aft, the lower the stall speed becomes. Since you need already a lot of downforce on the horizontal tail you need a lot more additional elevator force to be able to stall the airplane than with an aft CG. Some airplanes even can't be stalled at a forward CG. The wing stalls at the same AoA regardless of CG. With a forward CG the IAS will be higher at the same AoA, nothing else.

    Question for RW GA pilots: Weights and Balances

    At no time the airplane must be operated outside the CG limit. Especially if it's the aft limit! At high cruising altitude at low IAS you definitely don't want to fly an airplane that's unstable in pitch! If you encounter turbulence you might drop out of the sky in an unrecoverable spin really quick. Below MTOW the CG can move forward quite a bit on the TMB850 24% > 14% but not so much concerning aft movement 35% > 37% You need to know the actual inflight weight during cruise and calculate (before the flight) how much you can move your Pax etc. around at what weight.

    Since they are used copies, how do you install/activate them ?

    The T16000M is a very nice and very precise piece of equipment. I have mine configured for left hand use as well. Throttle range is small but sufficient
  10. Keep in mind that due to the differences between SP2 and Acceleration you e.g. can't use the xprototype LJ25 or most of the newer Flight Replicas airplanes.

    enable realistic startup in P3D v4

    The bottom line is for the FSX version. Needs to stay commented out in P3D.

    enable realistic startup in P3D v4

    No. Just checked and when you install the P3D version the cfg file is the correct version. I'd assume that they initially simply forgot to exchange the FSX cfg in the P3D package.

    That's an interesting observation because that's exactly the problem IRL. Even if you have thousands of hours in an A320, 767, CRJ etc. and you know you did everything right, it's not uncommon that both of us up in front are surprised after a, lets say 'solid arrival' and it leaves us scratching our heads why on earth this has just happened. Even more so in the A320 where the flare mode, the 50ft reference attitude, the automatically commanded pitch down etc. etc. leads to more unpredictable touchdowns than with conventional airplanes. Furthermore the lack of feel/feedback in e.g. the A320 makes life definitely more difficult, especially during landing.

    Hi Scott, didn't know that you like the PA31T. It's the only non-default airplane I have presently installed in P3D. I'll send you an updated FDE for P3D ASAP 🙂
