    Just wanted to remind you that a number of the X-Plane developers are real world pilots, notably Austin, who currently flies a Columbia 400 and a Lancair Evolution.

    If you're not letting it get into a bank, all you're doing is testing the airplane's roll moment of inertia. This has very little to do with roll stability and says nothing about the airplane's...

    Say what??? Look, I have about 120 hours in a 172, and this is absolutely, positively wrong. Throw a 172 into a left roll attitude, release the controls, and it will more or less stay there, to begin...

    Its "Beech".

    Thanx for the detailed explanation. One of the big problems with X-Plane is that most of the aircraft models are "out of rig", and indeed, an out of rig airplane is a real chore to...

    Yes, you can. Primary rudder operation is in the Flight Controls group along with rudder trim. The available assignments in the Keys menu are identical to those in the Buttons Advanced menu.

    X-Plane 10 only auto-coordinates if you have no flight controls plugged in at all. You'll have to assign something, maybe a couple of keypad keys, to control rudder. See the Settings->Joystick and...

    That preference doesn't carry over to Windows. The AMD graphics drivers are developed by different teams, and while the OSX AMD driver is clearly better than the nVidia driver, the situation is...

    Not quite sure why your brake assignment didn't work. There are multiple brake functions - toggle on/off with each button press, and hold while the button is depressed. What joystick do you have?...

    Exactly where is this and what custom scenery packages do you have installed for that location? If a scenery package replaces the elevation mesh it's entirely possible for there to be a mismatch with...

    Not true for aircraft. (It is true for custom scenery packages.) You can have any folder structure and group your aircraft in subfolders as you like. What matters is that the Airfoils folder must be...

    The problem is that X-Plane itself doesn't recognize the mode switch as anything special. Far as X-Plane is concerned, the mode switch is just another set of buttons. The Saitek programming software...

    From everything I've been able to make out, Goodway has been comatose for a couple years. I would not spend any money there.

    The weak link in the chain is the GT 640. 2 GB VRAM is good, but the gpu in the GT 640 is relatively weak. It will run X-Plane 10 OK, but you'll have to keep a lid on the visual quality options like...

    Mostly, X-Plane doesn't detect collisions with buildings and other airplanes, so that's not an issue. I sympathize with the blown tire problem. I suppose you could go into the failures menu and clear...

    There's no crash detection option in X-Plane. I'm not sure of the exact motivation for disabling it in FSX, but in X-Plane a hard landing won't stop you suddenly on the runway. You may bounce...

    I can help you on some of these points (more or less).

    I'm not aware of any means of inputting flight plans to X-Plane's AI aircraft. They just go do their own thing (which isn't real long on the...

    Weird. All I can think is you must be bumping something. Any manual trim input causes the autopilot to disconnect.

    By "the one I should get" you mean X-Plane Global, right? I'd recommend spending the extra money over a regional edition. It's not that much more, and it will save you a bunch of hassle later on when...

    Yeah - they got the aileron animation backwards in the 3D object model. It's actually pretty easy to fix. Find the file Objects/B25J_external.obj and open it with a text editor like WordPad. Near the...

    Take it down a notch to Very High.

    What I use is irrelevant - my video card and my choice of scenery packages are not the same as yours.
