Re: How Many Cars??

Open the pop-up with the Down-pointing arrow icon. By default, mine start at zero and the engines won't start without fuel! I believe the correct setting for start-up is 50%, and you should adjust at various stages of flight but if your employer isn't chary about fuel consumption you can crank them ...

Re: Connie flyers?

The Constellations certainly did have a reputation for engine failures. If you look at records for those that crashed you will see that many did so after losing a second engine. But it may only be a certain type, I think the later (larger) ones had different engines but don't quote me. I have a DVD ...

Re: Airspeed Ambassador for FSX out now!

Hello all, I know this is an old post but I presume all here have working versions of these aircraft? The downloads at http://robertjamesrichardson.co.uk/page4.html have faulty zip files with CRC failures. In one it is just a texture that won't unzip but in Airspeed Ambassador Mk2.zip it is the mdl ...
