Re: At Last.....!!!

You're a bad influence Nigel. After 10 years of owning a laptop, I've gone back to a desktop, mainly for increased performance in X-Plane and a larger screen for photo editing. After much deliberation, I went with: Silverstone Sugo SG11 Corsair TX550M 550 W 80+ Gold AMD Ryzen 2600X MSI B450M Gaming ...

Re: Carenado Saab 340 for X-Plane

No extras Nigel, just standard XP with times set accordingly to provide nice lighting. I think we should all get together and campaign for Mrs HJ to let you have both. No point in having a new PC if you've hardly got anything to fly is there :lol: :welldone: :lol: :lol: the problem is I have had my...

Re: Carenado Saab 340 for X-Plane

I bought the LES one during the week, and it looks like I picked the wrong one :'( I haven't yet managed to complete a flight with it, totally non-standard controls, views you need to pick from a menu, controls that won't bind to keyboard or joystick commands and some pretty old graphics.....apart ...

Re: Carenado Saab 340 for X-Plane

I have the P3Dv4 version and enjoy flying it. Also have the VCol one. Flown in them from Glasgow to Benbecula and Inverness to Edinburgh and reverse. Like them a lot. I need to look at getting a flight on one before they disappear. I've flown on a 2000 twice and thoroughly enjoyed it... better than...

Carenado Saab 340 for X-Plane

Hopefully old enough to be considered for the forum given its 1983 first flight, I've pulled the trigger on the latest release from Carenado. I've often been temped by the LES Saab 340 but held out when Carenado announced this one. I can't say I've done a great deal other than buzz around the countr...

Re: Surprise!

I flew the Aerolite 103 out to a carrier near Southampton yesterday. Reduced the throttle to land and despite still being airborne, the vessel began to pull away :lol:

Is that the model based off Manfred Jahn's FSX C47?
If so, it may be possible to convert some FSX schemes to fit.
