    I don't have that laptop, but I've been running FSX Deluxe since 2010 on my Win 7 64-bit machine (XP before that). If you are having problems with it on Win 7, it's likely something wrong with the...

    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.

    Nicely done. Judging by the way you explain things, you're probably also a CFI. Nice tutorial series.

    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...

    Well, perhaps not. Thinking it over, it may be that there are few people who really understand how hard it can be in the real world to spot many airports, even some with hard surfaces. And some like...

    If you want to see what's possible, check out the Lotus L-39 Albatross in FSX and P3D (I have V2.4). Somehow he got the lights shining, not only on the pavement, but also on most objects in the sim....

    Gee, you took the words right out of my mouth. :pilot::cool:

    I guess I should really say that there are plenty of airports like that in real life -- hard to spot. I've seen plenty of those in FSX...

    That's backwards, and would tend to keep you from turning at all. What happens in a real aircraft, and in many models in FSX and P3D, is that applying aileron makes the nose want to yaw in the...

    Stick and rudder is an excellent resource, though a few things in it are better understood if you are flying a real aircraft at least occasionally, things such as "buoyancy."

    Yes, there is still snow in the Rockies. In fact, they're predicting more snow in the next few days. It's often mid June or later before most of the snow is gone from the mountains, and some may...

    None of the PC based sims allow all of the specifics you can get in a multi-million dollar sim (but the cost is much less, too), but you can set FSX and P3D to automatically generate failures of most...

    In the heyday of that aircraft, yes, an ILS was flown manually (if available at all), and VORs weren't deployed until after WW II, so during the 307's service there would have been few of them.
