    In 2D view, this has always been a problem for many FS pilots no matter FS9, FSX, P3D. My solution is to assign two keyboard keys in the Menu - Options/Controls/Buttons-Keys feature to the actions...

    First, make sure you are "dirty and slow" before the GS. If you are making a fast approach and trying to slow down, turbofans spool up very slowly from idle to mid range, and that can be part of the...

    Usually works, but some planes on some surfaces at light weights may not hold, especially if not at idle. Rare, though. Also, some freeware models have the gear length a little too short, but can be...

    I thought the best job of documenting carrier operations was some of the footage involving the flight deck crews. No one can fully appreciate what coordination there is in launching, recovering,...

    Then, replace your entire [CameraDefinition.xxx] with the ones below. This gives you a new VC "Captain Seat" with no momentum effect. Don't use...

    Good writeup, Phantom.

    I use that VC light process as well. Sometimes if it doesn't seem to work, I move a cockpit VC light up about 1 ft higher than a top beacon lite ( at dusk time setting) to...
