    I've got three of these things, acquired fifteen years ago. They started going wonky after a few months.

    HardCub

    I just discovered this post, and it has helped me a lot. I'm able to use planes which have just been sitting in my hangar due to fuzzy VC gauges.

    You're a plane saver!

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the tips. I was doing pretty-much the same thing, but found that I was leaving too much manifold pressure on, about 20 inches. The other problem was misjudging my flare height. For a...

    I forgot to mention in my OP that I did the install on a test box, that had a clean install that I didn't care about mangling. I installed the Golden Wings over the clean install.

    Thanks, Tom. It must have been an enormous amount of work. I was surprised to discover that even my local area (Toronto), had been significantly altered.

    Tom,

    You've described WHAT they did. What I wondered about is HOW. Where did these ground textures come from?

    Does anyone know how Bill and Lynn Lyons did this? It seems an incredible piece of work.

    Quite so, Larry. I stand (sit?) corrected. That's what I meant, but the right words didn't come to mind. I should know better than to rely on my memory, but sometimes, I forget.

    Man, you're ahead of me by almost a generation. I started in 1972. There were a few tailwheels around, but not many. I remember seeing a sign on the highway that said, "Learn to fly, in a Champion"....

    Rick,

    Yes, Keith's suggestion about the elevator effectiveness was quite helpful. I'm getting there, even without the "cheat" window. In 3D view, I'm still having a little trouble judging my flare...

    Rick,

    The reason I chose the Spartan, was because I'm using it in Golden Wings, and I wanted to keep it "time period correct". I hadn't realized that it would be such a handful. As Keith...

    Actually, per your advice, rather than modifying the .air file, I modified the .cfg file. I set the "elevator_effectiveness" to 2, which has helped. Another thing that has helped: I hadn't been using...

    Yeah, I have the same humble opinion. As I said in the OP, I don't recall it being an issue in the 201. Thanks for the tips.

    At any rate, I've come to terms with it. It takes a bit of technique to...
