Thread: RV-9A confused download error

    Hey JD,
    This is a unique airplane. And as such, I will help you with the various things I see is not right. Not wrong, but not right. It can be a very nice airplane to fly low & slow. I was kidding about scraping it. I was going to work on it tonight. I just had to go play 9 ball at 4 pm (do it daily, 7 days a week, only missed 5 days in 2019). But I am back at 6 pm and will work on it tonight. Not sure why it crashed my FS9 and I tried several things but no luck. I got a different panel, etc. So it must be a model problem? I downloaded the original (2014 by Chuck Dome). It was never intended to work in FS9 so maybe you should give it up - it's for FSX only. My impression, of course. I looked for a RV-9 Vans for FS9, googled back to 2007, and I can not find one. There might be RV6 and RV7 somwhere but not RV9. Cheers.

    I do not know who said what, I remember several but now it seems your comment is the only one that I see. I discovered that the panel.cfg for the Green model of RV9a did not have the // in front of the autotrim gauge. The slash marks need to be in front to block the autotrim in the 2D and also the 3D Virtual cockpit. This makes the plane fly as it should. I was thinking this was something I could blame Chuck Dome for but I am guilty of missing the problem. Just know that I use the not steerable nose wheel as is the actual plane.. I did not feel capable of positioning the cockpit view when selecting the virtual cockpit, so I use Shift+ backspace or Shift + Enter to move the view up or down.
    Ctrl + backspace or Ctrl + Enter to move forward and backward. Ctrl + Shift + backspace or C + S + Enter to move L or R. I am sorry for the trouble I caused. I still believe the plane is fun. At this time the FS2004 does not work. -- J Dwayne Redding

    Well I installed the original (2014) and it flys VERY well, auto trim included. The auto trim works good - I like it. There was no 'differential_braking_scale=' line. I added it and made it '=0.8' which is sufficient. I did switch to the steerable and with differential braking even the other option works ok (trick is to TAP, TAP, TAP the differential braking as you taxi/turn and not just hold it down).The Panels are fabulous. Nice job. I did nothing and the views were ok. The trick (I do believe) is to have 'WideViewAspect=True' in fsx cfg (Display) section. Someone said: 'if the real one flys like the fs one then WOW'. I second that. Very nice. I did find that all the files were 'BLOCKED' so went 'properties' and unblocked them all, just for kicks. I think this is a keeper. So there is only one or 2 things that need changed. Otherwise it is payware quality, especially when you throw in the 2d and VC panels! TBC.

    Too many simmers to thank, so thank you to all that responded. When I did this posting, I thought it would create a small fix, apparently it's more. I mostly fly liners, but this RV9 looked great detail as I live in small town central AZ in Mtn area, and every weekend mostly a club or sometimes just a few RV's come up to airport from mostly Phoenix area. But again thanks, maybe I will check back from time to time to see if any fixes. Also like to thank all the designers that love this hobby to create these.

    The original zip (2014) named 'rv-9a.zip', 1,864 kb, by Chuck Dome, did not need any fix and worked good in FSX. The later upload by JD Redding is 2 paints and I don't know what he changed in air file or cfg. Perhaps the line 'reference_datum_position= 0, 0, 0// 1.112,0.0,0.0' alone WOULD mess it up. Change to 'reference_datum_position=1.112, 0.000, 0.000'. THAT is VERY important.

    To further imporve it:
    (1). reduce the braking from '=2.5' to '=1.0' and add 'differential_braking_scale=0.8' to (Brakes) section.
    (2). add line 'WideViewAspect=True' to fsx cfg (Display) section (fixes panel view 'problem').
    (3). change cnt pts line for (pt.0) to 'steerable' as opposed to 'freewheeling'.
    (4). KEEP the auto trim line - it works good.
    That's IT! go fly it an see.

    Thanks napamule2 for your assistance. I followed your reply, still did not load up. I wondering if it's something to do with .air file even though this is suppose to be for both 2004/FSX?. Also when I went to load up to fly again the error message is MDL what is this file? whatever this is, is why it will not load up. Maybe this still is only for FSX & not 2004 which I have, what a shame as I would like to add to my library of planes.

    Yes the RV-9a is ONLY for FSX. It is not for FS9. No it's not the air file, it's a 'native' FSX model (MDL) so FS9 can't handle this type model, I guess. I don't know if it's GMax or FSDS either - they didn't say. At any rate it can't be 'fixed'. I believe there were payware FS9 models (RV-6, RV-7, RV-8) but I do not 'do' anything payware as I do not need them that bad and can live without them.

    Again thanks for your help in resolving this. I hate when you go to 2004 new aircraft's, you see one that says both but to find out its only for FSX in 2004 area. I too agree the free downloads to me is just as good to fly. I have a lot of them as well as the airports. I mostly fly liners classic and today's liners, all good. I appreciate these guys that do these free downloads. But once in awhile I come upon what looks like a nice AC, just to find out it's only FSX in 2004 area. I am always looking. I understand this is older FS9 but I have too much stuff such as pedals, yoke free downloads plus need to build a powerful computer to handle FSX, some simmers are going back to FS9.
