    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...

    Granted that most folks know that, but I didn't know your background or much of anything about you except that you are a simmer, not even whether English is your first language, and I'd have hated to...

    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.

    Some FSX aircraft are extremely sloppy in their response to the autopilot. I know this can be changed in the .air file, but it would take a lot of experimentation to find the necessary changes.

    Actually, in a turbofan, the air that goes to combustion is only a small portion of the air that is needed, and the rest goes to the "fan" which acts as a kind of specialized propeller. This NASA...
