    Flaps may be deployed when you are within the white arc on the airspeed indicator. If memory serves, that is up to 85 kts, or so. And yes, you want to slow while maintaining your constant altitude....

    Since we can't see what you're doing, perhaps a comment or two to advise us of what you are doing might help us help you. So what airspeed are you maintaining down final -- or are you even getting to...

    Thanks for posting that link to the forum, Aaron. It brought out details that, in retrospect, make a great deal of sense, though since I've never flown jumpers I hadn't considered, but weight and...

    Thanks Wim, since I rarely use flight plans in the sim I'd forgotten about that. I also hadn't thought about the OP possibly being in multiplayer instead of looking at AI, in which case any other...

    Which is why I said, "and not knowing you I don't know how much you're aware," since I actually had no idea what your background is-- some simmers know a LOT, some surprise me by how little they know...

    I don't recall any that don't get information from the aircraft.cfg file, though it might be different fields than you expect. The [flightsim.0] and [flightsim.1] etc. have many lines in each...

    Are you talking about altimeter setting (barometer) or just IAS changes or perhaps some other way of noting pressure. I ask because of two things, in particular, and not knowing you I don't know how...

    The rudder pedals would apply directly, but the Cirrus has a side stick rather than a yoke, and the only Cirrus-style stick I know of is rather expensive, plus you'd need to add the throttle quadrant...

    Yes, FS2002 should run on Win 10, but I'd suggest you go with FS2004, rather than FS2002 if you proceed in this. It's much improved over FS2002, and should run satisfactorily on that system. With my...

    What you actually need is a network hub, but most of the consumer routers I know of include this function, so even a fairly old (5-10 years) router, as long as it has connections for two or more...

    Well, the first thing is to have a LAN, which probably means a router (unless you know how to make one computer act as a LAN host) connected to each computer via ethernet cable (wireless might work,...

    Yes, getting it back would almost be starting over completely. And that would be expensive, as you say, for something that is much less attractive than when I originally got it, and of much less use...

    I had to hunt on their website to find that the V-12 diesel is about 550 horsepower, which with having only reached 218 kts at 17K sounds not that much better than a Baron (200 kts with a pair of...
