    That well could be, but keep in mind that, when some software changed on this forum in 2005, join dates were reset for many of us. Even though mine says 2005, the original was 1998 -- many others...

    Nicely done instruction, as usual, but I'm curious about the grass acting like ocean waves (around 1:30, for example). I don't have the 2020 sim, but that's a curious effect. Is it everywhere?

    Sudden? Never existed? No more so than from FS8 to FS9 or FS9 to FSX. It's a new market, so they can do things with the "new kid on the block" that have been done, redone and overdone in FSX and...

    Wow! It amazes me how some youngsters think that new is ALWAYS better (it's not) and that there's somehow something wrong with "old tech." It also would be interesting to know on what basis you claim...

    Almost 48 minutes? Wow. In the first 5 minutes I found out what the exterior looked like and that it is a rare type, not much else. Perhaps it's a great review, I don't know, but I don't have ¾ hour...

    Note that those principles that helped you with the Arrow, work for other aircraft too, including the Cessnas -- you should have better success with the Cessnas that way, as well as others.

    I don't even know what AIFP3 is, but if you mentioned AIFP3 trouble in the title, it might attract someone who does.

    Just a suggestion on terminology. What you call a horizontal loop is normally just called a loop and is a vertical maneuver. What you described as a vertical loop is a steep turn and is a horizontal...

    Plainsman has it right. There is a Manifold Pressure gauge where you can read the changes as you move the throttle, and it reads in inches of mercury (Hg" for abbreviation). The quote mark has long...

    Sorry I got cut short in my previous post -- life happens.

    The actual leaning procedure for the Baron would be to lean the mixture until the fuel flow reads according to the charts in the manual,...

    Leaning is done in order to maintain a near ideal mixture ratio of fuel to air. As the air gets thinner with altitude the fuel flow needs to decrease.


    Yes, because too rich a mixture reduces...

    In step 2 you tune in a radial. Assuming the TO/FROM flag shows FROM (therefore the course on the outside edge of the OBS is that radial's value), that will take you AWAY FROM the VOR station, once...

    Elevator trim, which affects the pitch attitude, where you are having problems. In real life a T-tail is a bit more awkward in that regime than a standard tail is.

    Interesting! Looks pretty good, though a pair of airports and only one glider to be towed in isn't much. Obviously I can't comment on the handling, but a couple of minor things: Dust being blown up...

    Perhaps you could adjust your trim setting to a bit more nose up. And you shouldn't wait until it "dances" before adding back pressure to lift off, it should be smoother than that.
