I've got some general flying questions:
1. Taxi speeds in FSX seem to be really hard to control. I've been flying the Caravan and can't seem to get it into a stable taxi speed. It just keeps going faster and faster. If I make the slighest change in power it eventually stops. Any ideas?
2. Pushback seems to be a bit odd. I start the push back in top-down view and when it reaches where I need it to turn I push 1 or 2. Nothing happens. SOmetimes when I keep pushing either one or 2 it starts turning (way later) and sometimes, not at all.
3. Descent calculations. I've been flying some IFR flights and get routed pretty much all the way down. My problem is during VFR flights when I dont know exactly what the formula is for figuring out when to start the descent. For example, say I'm flying at KIAS 120 @ 4000. If I need to be down to 1500 X miles from the runway how do I know when to start descending and at what speeds to get to the desired alt and distance from the runway?
4. Are there any freely downloadable aircraft manuals on the internet? For example, for the caravan and other aircraft in the default FSX fleet (besides the ones in FSX)?
Thanks much in advance!
