    Here's where I landed today

    226254
    I wanted to land at this airport (KTEX) again, but I didn't want to take the time to fly there from another field, so I set up an arrival in the World Map screen. I expected MSFS to start me...

    Hmmm. I have rudder pedals. I haven’t drilled down in the settings further than pedal sensitivity. Maybe there’s an auto rudder on/off setting. I’ll let you know.

    Thanks. I understood that banking left without rudder input causes adverse yaw to the right, etc., but I was confused re. how to counteract it. Your explanation is clearer than Wolfgang’s. I’ll try...

    Thanks much. I just took the C 152 "up" for pattern practice at KWVI. I noticed that the ball doesn't move when I turn without rudder, though I can certainly make it move if I use the rudder. There...

    Wow! Thanks for devoting so much time to me. I've printed your tips for reference. I will go back to the Cessna 152 and spend more time on those "basics." I did another couple of practice landings in...

    I’ve definitely not been holding a steady angle and airspeed, except when I’ve “cheated” with mostly auto-pilot-controlled ILS approaches. Figuring out how to establish both without that crutch has...

    Interesting. I take it from the photo that you are an actual pilot. When I'm "landing," I focus on the numbers first, and then as I get closer, raise the nose to aim at points progressively farther...

    There's still snow in the MSFS Rockies

    Flew from Montrose, Colo. Regional Airport (KMTJ) to Telluride (KTEX) this afternoon in the Beech Bonanza. On the World map, I chose a VOR-to-VOR flight plan from Montrose to RWY 9 at KTEX. I was...

    Community flying

    I was practicing landings in the Beech Bonanza at our local airport (Watsonville) again today when I saw another simmer parked there, also "in" a Bonanza. He/she (unlikely) went by "4Monkey" or...

    What the....?

    Took off from Watsonville in my Top Rudder ultralight in another futile search for our house. I know/think it's in the sim, but I can't fly slow enough to spot it among all the trees. Then I decided...

  14. Where I flew today: KWVI to KMRY (several times)

    Finally got back into the cockpit and "into the air" today, after being grounded for the better part of a week because my Logitech throttle quadrant stopped working; said failure "thanks" to a faulty...

    Are you flying bush trips? You lose points anytime you click the GPS map to get the plane back on track.

    No luck

    It didn't work, either reliably or at all. It turned out I couldn't fool my PC (or MSFS) into recognizing my PS/2-cable-based throttle quadrant as a USB device by connecting it to the PC with a...

    Preliminarily, I have learned that the adapter will not work plugged into a USB port on the flight yoke itself. I tried that, and my PC flashed a warning that the yoke's USB hub couldn't provide...

    Problem solved, I hope

    Thanks to a Reddit thread I discovered, I think I've found a quick, reliable fix.

    Throttled

    Can't fly at the moment. MSFS suddenly can't detect my Logitech throttle quadrant, connected to my PC through the Logitech flight yoke via PS2 cable. I had this problem yesterday, but was able to...

    I bought it the other day and cruised our neighborhood "in" it. Easy to fly and challenging to land if there's any crosswind at all. In fact, I think it'd be a good trainer for rudder work in...

    Thanks. Will do. Although the prospect makes me nervous. After all my earlier trouble with MSFS '20, it has been running without so much as a burp, let alone a hiccup, for weeks now. Today, for...

    Updates?

    I've assumed that MSFS has downloaded and installed all the updates--USA, UK, Benelux, etc.--as they've come out. However, as I was exploring the in-sim marketplace ("full catalog") today, I saw that...
