    There's a lot of static scenery (much of it including aircraft) right here on flightsim.com. You could also search the file library here choosing FSX and searching for the keywords "static aircraft"...

    I don't have this particular sim, but typically what you describe is caused by gear still down, flaps extended or spoilers opened. It's also possible that you are operating only one throttle, which...

    Given all the responses above and your replies, Allan, are you certain the sim is actually pauses? I ask because that feature works for the rest of us and because the display of information might...

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for the additional information. You were indeed a lucky one, to have Jesse as an uncle.

    Actually, that's MUCH more common than you might think. As one who has done troubleshooting in both hardware and software in two types of analog plus many digital computers (not to mention...

    Thanks for clarifying that. Software does, indeed, have oddball glitches and sometimes needs a "kick in the pants" to straighten it out.

    Gosh, sorry to hear that, Noel. Jesse was indeed a neat guy. I remember him, you, Bala and a number of others in that Hangar talk, and I recall that CAF airshow. Below are some pix of Jesse, some...

    But there are all sorts of interactions in computers and software that people don't expect, so if you share your solution you might help someone else. So your disbelief is normal and nothing to be...

    At least that. I found this on the web:

    Nicely done, as always. It's neat that you chose a DC-6 for this, such that you also demonstrated the aircraft categories very well, often a poorly understood factor. Also, by hand flying you allowed...

    Perhaps you have the throttle set to only use one engine -- if so it would, indeed, be uncontrollable. Have you confirmed that you are getting power on both engines adjusted with the single throttle?

    Certainly a real C-152 can have a DME, given the proper installed avionics. It's just another piece of radio gear. But the owner has to determine if it's worth the expense for his intended usage. It...

    So you're saying that the OP couldn't just bring the throttle to idle (with autothrottle off, of course) and land? I can't believe the FAA would allow an aircraft designed that way, nor would I want...

    [QUOTE=Rebrecs;2159434]Well I figured out how to land it .... sort of.
    pillow soft touchdown but I couldn't stop it.

    As the zipper said, autothrottle on is most likely your problem.

    That's True AirSpeed. The airspeed indicator won't show near that, perhaps closer to 250 kts, depending on conditions and altitude. I don't know the actual nose up amount, since I've never tried to...

    Yes, it's normal. When any aircraft flies at a slow Indicated Airspeed (IAS) it will, in level flight, be somewhat nose up. With the thin air at higher altitudes, the (IAS) is a relatively low...

    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...
