    Thanks for the advice(s). I will try some if the suggestions, but I get the impression many of you fly without using( or ignoring😀) the default ATC.?
    I follow their instructions, and if I don't, I...

    Noted. Will check fuel. I had wondered on previous occasions whether too much flap too early, or too low a speed might cause it.
    So this time I was doing 226 knots when hit the App. I was at the...
  4. Default 737 . Attaining glideslope problem. Oversteering?

    Hello
    Flying ILS landings, I find that when pressing the App button to turn on to the glideslope, the plane turns on to the Slope and then goes past quite a way, then doesn't return to the runway...

    Thanks chaps. No, I shan't give up on the Stratoliner. However, I think I have been spoiled by David Maltbys wonderful Comet and Trident.
    I would seriously contend that of any FSX aircraft, payware...

    Don't know if my experience can help, but I have the ability to do exactly what you describe.
    I use a projector screen and a ordinary monitor as a second screen.
    ( Mind you , I am still on Windows...

    Thank you everyone. As I suspected, the plane was too early for ILS. I did wonder though, because the Douglas DC4 by Jens has the full landing aids.
    (That is a lovely plane to fly).
    So, got to get...

    I don't think so. Surely they use the App button and ride the glideslope. Of course, from time to time they have to do manual landings to keep their skills honed, but mainly they use ILS landings by...
  9. Boeing 307 stratoliner. ILS landings. Advice please

    I am flying the above plane , a Jen Kristensen creation. I appreciate it is a 40s plane, but I cannot find how to "click" a button, or whatever, to get on the glideslope. IOW. The App button as in...

    I appreciate it's probably a safety feature, but it didn't half mess me about till I sussed it.
    Then when I flew into St Petersburg in the dark, it took several goes to not over stress the plane...

    Don't know why, I keep reading some 'S 2020 threads😀 because I fly FSX and will not at my age port over to the latest sim- all my hardware is FSX etc and t'would be too much hassle.However, I saw...

    Hi. Got a Cougar. Foxy software. I use it together with a spitfire sim controller, I.e replica spitfire joystick and pedals.

    Oh, thank you. Excellent that they are supported. .

    Unfortunately, I have old joysticks, not able to be used with windows 10. Does ms2020 need windows 10.? I have a feeling it does.

    It does...

    Well, well. As a FSX flyer using Gen X scenery of England, and tracker, I thus get a pretty good replication of what a RW pilot sees.
    It gets not very good at lower altitudes, but overall I see...

    Wonderful scenery, but a little worried by having the external view of the plane.

    Does the sim give that sort of detail, i.e. Perfect, if you have a VC view using tracker? or equivalent .

    Same here, and of course can't afford the time - O'Hare to Heathrow is a long way😀

    Using the map is very quick. Just have to be careful that the altitude and speed values don't change...

    This may be complete anathema to you, but I use FS Commander.
    I make flight plans with it, mainly flying IFR in airliners.
    I have it running on a second monitor.
    It shows route etc, but one of...

    So, why would I want to update computer or flight sim?

  19. Do you do "full" flights , or just take offs, climbs then landings.

    Hi
    How many airliner pilots fly the full journey?
    I suspect most, like me, cut out the cruise bit.
    I take off, climb out to cruise.
    Then I short cut to just before descent begins, and then...

    Thank you John, and thank you all.
    Interesting about not using Sperry. during climb? So no auto pilot functions during climb, just pure manual control?
    Reference trim. As far as I can see there is...

    Jens DC 4 v 30 - the Alt hold switch?

    Hello
    On the DC4 there is an Alt hold switch to the left of the pilot seat, and an ils/localiser switch.
    Though they obviously assist the landing, can anyone tell me if they are authentic?
    I...
