  1. Pulled the trigger on the Connie yesterday. Beautiful. Installed fine, loaded in the sim fine. FPS still pretty good. Mistakenly assigned my rudder axis to nosehweel steering in the configurator: No rudders moving! OOPS, reverted back, all OK. Had Larry(the FE) do his stuff. Cool! Then I let the engines idle too long whilst generally faffing about... so he shut them all down again! LOL. Eventually got her moving and took off from Manchester EGCC, full bore. OOPS shouldn't cane the engines like that (thanks, Larry!) Flew out and around, getting her trimmed out about 2500 feet. All the time wondering why the prop rpm was still at full chat redline despite me throttling back to reasonable manifold settings... Was going to land at Manchester but then saw Liverpool EGGP off to my right. OK I'm low enough and far enough out - go for it. Got her lined up and slowed down - just guessing at the speeds - no less than 85 knots dirty and it was working. Landed fine... on one main first :) She flew pretty sweetly. I'd read that the Connie was a bit sensitive in pitch, but apart from a little porpoising on the approach I don't think she was any worse than other aircraft in my virtual fleet. Note - she wasn't loaded at all for this flight. Back to the prop rpm. I guess Larry was expecting me to manage the rpm from up front... especially after I discovered the little master prop switch with increase & decrease labelled on it!! LOL Manuals are provided for a good reason I guess. Thank you A2A from a jet guy who may now be crossing to the dark side of cantankerous fire breathing radials...
  2. Just a thank you to Warbirds for his Connie repaints. I've placed the VC from the blue Connie (his shiny retro scheme) into the BOAC one. I used the alternative yoke colours (black yoke), but unfortunately I hadn't realised that the modified yoke comes with the green cockpit insulation. No matter, perhaps it'll catch on. Disregarding my mismatching of colours - nice job, Paul!
  3. I selected the cargo ramp at Southend airport (UK2000 demo) with an appropriately liveried plane which used to fly from there. Was this or is this the cargo ramp? A current chart doesn't seem to indicate this. Also note that this is the demo scenery from UK2000 so some structures may well be missing, but still, the old Connie looks rather cool IMHO.
  4. Hi, first time posting one of my videos in Avsim but thought I would share.
  5. Climbing away from Southend, bound for Rotterdam. Didn't make the baby cry: No passengers!
