    I don't have a yoke, so don't know this one, but perhaps it's faulty or not set up correctly. Otherwise, perhaps you're making your inputs too large. Try very small pressure changes on the elevator,...

    I'd add that taking the flight lessons in FS (yes, in a lowly C-172) can help a lot in understanding how to fly -- the same principles apply and the Cessna is easier.

    But I might add that if...

    Depending on the aircraft type, propeller control and mixture control may play a big role in power management. Aircraft such as the Cessna 172 and Piper Cub have fixed pitch propellers, so there's no...

    In simple terms, ORBX has several kinds of animation in their various sceneries, each titled "something"flow.

    What is GEP3D? All I can find on the web is Game Engine Programming, and I don't think that's what you mean.

    I have version 4, using it since FS9, and it works wonderfully in FSX and P3D with no changes. Updates aren't frequent, but they're simple to install, with no workarounds needed. It works with the...

    Heading is the direction your nose is pointed, your compass reading. Your course is the direction you are flying, that is, your track over the ground. They're only the same with no wind, otherwise...

    1) The speed varies with the aircraft, but it should be fast enough to trim quickly and slow enough to allow precision trimming.

    2) You trim until you no longer have to hold forward or back...

    A very good movie -- the book matches it closely, too, a rare case where the movie came first.

    You can also move your aircraft via slew, including altitude changes, to the viewpoint you want and then, once there, use (still in slew) rudder to swing around looking in various directions. This...

    I use it all the time.



    I still have (but rarely run) FSX on my system.

    What makes you think it'll get rid of OOMs? I don't get them with a 32-bit program. 64-bit is not a magic wand, it just has more potential address space, provided it actually gets used. Your sights...

    That sounds normal, on the ground. A wind from the right blows against the vertical fin of the aircraft, pushing it to the left, thus a right turn; vice versa for a wind from the left, of course....

    Of course that's not a formation takeoff, but would be one way of getting them together for formation after getting airborne.



    It's touchy, at best, with similar aircraft -- with different...

    The takeoff and landing might be a problem, but the rest of it is no problem. But since I've never flown either of them, I can only speculate that with a long runway (for reduced power on the P-51)...

    It could easily be missing textures, as Jim says. It also could be the sliders turned up too high -- if you hit PAUSE and after 2-3 minutes (or less) you start to see some of them go normal, it may...

    Certainly you didn't hear the squeal, because when the transmitter is keyed the receiver is shut off, thus causing silence for YOU, not for everyone else. YOU will only hear the squeal when it's two...

    If you "heard" the silence, then you also heard what happened over the speakers afterwards. If enough of it was blocked, ATC will ask for a repeat. But if you hear a transmission in progress, why is...

    Unlike David, I'd suggest that P3D v2 (I'm on 2.4) might be good for you. It does have a minor problem or two but, for me, the vastly improved performance (including with ORBX and UTX v2), especially...
