Re: The Argosy in FSX

This is not intended as a "bump" but is just a summary of the position for me after more testing. I have done more tests and it seems about half of the turbo-props I use work fine, but the other half firmly refuse to start: WORK FINE: JBK Britannia (with FM'S FSX panel) * MS Britannia (with FM'S FSX...

Re: The Argosy in FSX

John, you did download the FSX Argosy from the library didn't you? That one has had the modifications to the code to let it work in FSX. :cpu: Yes, I did. I downloaded a second time just in case . . . I am at least comforted I am not being stupid and am not alone experiencing this. I thought I woul...

The Argosy in FSX

G'day chaps, I hope you are all doing OK in these difficult times. I am a bit late on parade but I have moved into the modern era (ha ha) with FSX. Most aircraft are doing fine but I am finding turboprops harder to master than the piston-engined stuff. With persistence I have got many of the turbopr...

Re: Rick Piper Viscount

If I remember rightly on the both the Viscount 700 and 800 you:
  • Descend at Flaps 2
  • Approach at Flaps 3
  • Deploy Flaps 4 after touchdown for braking
I don't think you need to use position 4 for any other purpose.

John

Re: Radar Contact 4 now freeware

That thread says it is a Visual Basic 6 Runtime file. The official source for this is at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24417 As I read that thread, that should install it properly and fully, without any other fancy faffing. It will certainly do no harm to try. Like you I ...

Re: EGPB Scenery Please

A little anecdote: Once when I was in Shetland the newspaper flight came in on the short runway but ran off the end, across the road and settled nose-down on the rocks between there and the sea. All you could see from the road was its tail. For the islanders it was a national disaster - no concern s...

Re: HS 748 updated panel problems

As an aside to this thread, I just wondered if anyone knows if there are any airworthy 748s remaining anywhere? According to Wikipedia there's a preserved series 1 type preseserved at Liverpool's Speke Airport but I assume it's not fly able. *-) EricT To go back to an early question in this thread,...

Re: British Eagle BAC 1-11

Just a follow-up in case others wish to do the same - I did try the FS2002 aircraft as AI but have encountered a few problems. It will taxi out from a parking spot if it is forward facing but if it needs to perform a push-back it just vanishes after obtaining clearance. I'm hoping it is fixable with...

Re: British Eagle BAC 1-11

Thanks for the quick reply, Colin. I have found the mentioned FS2002 one on Flightsim.com - need to do some testing but it will probably do OK for AI.

Best regards,

John
