    Milviz PC-6 Turbo-Porter Released

    They (we?) did indeed. The Porter the engine tech from the upcoming King Air and is one of the best turbine simulations available right now. It's quite splendid and you can easily blow up the engine if you're not careful so be sure to keep a close eye on the gauges when starting and flying! It will bite you if you abuse it (as I've found out many times the hard way..)

    I believe you should’ve gotten an email already if you’ve purchased products directly from them before (the Milviz store on their website). Worst case scenario, email oisin [at] milviz [dot] com with your previous purchase information and he’ll make sure you get your discount. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    It will not to the best of my knowledge. The only textures available are PBR so for that reason alone it won’t work on anything less than 4.4. It does work on 4.4, you just can’t select the weather radar option in MVAMS as the installer only installs a 4.5 compatible version of the WX gauge. Hope this helps. Let me know if you’re still not sure and I’ll do my best to clarify further.

    It does. It has TFDi’s TrueGlass implemented.
  5. I have, yeah. Power is just straight TOGA, CG is within limits, if not a bit towards the rear with only fuel as payload, and trim is near the nose down limit, but still within the envelope. I’m planning more test flights today, checking it with a dereated thrust setting, less flaps in, and some cargo in the forward compartment. Should fix the issue, though from Kyle is saying, it’s all about technique.
  6. I knew it was something I was doing wrong..I’ll drop it back to DTO2 which will probably eliminate the issue. Sorry for being so dumb, and great job on the -8!
  7. That’s the thing, I’m not tugging on the yoke at all when it wants to pitch up. If anything, I have a bit of nose down pressure applied. I’ve experienced this IRL flying an Archer on soft field or standing takeoffs where you need nose down pressure to compensate for the increased airflow over the elevator. I’ll try trimming to the nose down limit, and apply forward pressure, on my next departure and see if that eliminates the issue.
  8. Don’t know if this is a bug in the flight model, or simply a consequence of the situation, but I thought I’d bring it up anyway. It seems that whenever I depart in the -8 at extremely light weights, as in 40k pounds of fuel and no payload, the nose will pitch up to the point where the tail strikes the ground on the takeoff roll. Since I like the almost comical climb rates, I almost always go TOGA on departure, but is the increased thrust the cause of this nose up tendency? The first time I experienced this was a takeoff using TOGA and flaps 20, so I decided to use flaps 10 on the next departure in the interest of reducing lift and surface area for the thrust to impact. Sadly, this did nothing and it took full forward action on the yoke to keep the nose down. My CG seemed to be within limits, and the stab trim was near 2, as calculated by the takeoff page. I’ve tried a derated takeoff, but I can’t recall if the nose pitched up or not. The issue for me also happens upon landing, with full forward stick also being required to hold the nose down. Any ideas on what this might be? I’ll probably end up a bit of cargo in the forward hold to keep the nose down from now on, but it’d be nice to know if it’s something I’m doing wrong or an issue with the model itself. Thanks in advance (and sorry if it’s my own fault..)!

    Submitting a ticket at would probably be your best bet to get the support you need.
  10. I’d imagine we’ll hear more once GFO is out the door, since that is the project that stole the resources from the J41.
  11. What’s this I hear about you flying the NG3 soon..?

    I do remember hearing about a new flight model for the -400, maybe this will be included as well?

    What’s this you say of an updated 744..?
