    My thanks

    I wanted to thank you all for your feedback and advice. I've gone from knowing almost nothing to being able to control airspeed properly, know when and how to lower flaps properly, and have even...

    Double the fun

    Ok, so I have been using a laptop with about a 17" screen for fsx. Then I got a 24" extra monitor. I used the extra one to extend my view looking left because it's normally a left traffic pattern.

    Inertia?

    I was just thinking about how inertia effects the turns of an aircraft. Am I correct in assuming that a plane can roll out of a turn to straight and level flight but still have a slight "drift" in...

    Saved a flight at 2000 agl lined up about 5 miles out. Gives me time to catch the glidescope and adjust power and trim.

    Ah, ok that makes sense. So pulling back to idle at that point and slowly raise the nose to level flight? Then when close to the ground I can expect the rate of descent to decrease and combined with...

    I was reading somewhere that you should lower the speed to just above stall before getting to the threshold. Then round out and flare in ground effect.

    Not sure if that is how it should really be...

    Floating on sunshine

    I thought I would go back to the beginning and fly the c172 as many suggest getting it mastered first. I've learned to be at traffic pattern and on the glidescope, full flaps and at 65kt.

    I'll give it a go. So it's like you trim along the way rather than when you get to your pitch. Question, would you recommend using a button on the joystick or use the trim wheel in the Sim by...

    Yeah, I know that stalls are affected by it. It's just that in a Sim there are no real dangers in it since it isn't real. So I just don't spend the time required to do it right.

    Trim For The Sim

    Why didn't anyone tell me about this? Maybe no one knows? So I want to share something about trim in FSX that has REALLY helped me.

    Thanks for the info. Good to know I wasn't doing wrong with a higher decent rate on the larger jet. Oh and just to clarify, I am able to handle the prop planes. So that's why I am on the 737 now.

    LOL, well if I could get Xplane to actually get above 10fps I may agree. But as it stands I don't have much choice but to fly fsx. Believe me, I'd much rather go with xplane if I could.

    It's because this topic was xplane vs fsx... I'd say that's a good reason to bring up fsx.
