    First impressions from a late buyer

    I purchased this plane with a feeling that it was safe since it`s Aerosoft. I waited this long to give Aerosoft the time to fix the typical release bugs. Too bad i`m not the guy who reads forums everyday. Thanks to you guys for being so positive and friendly. I just love the internet with all the nice people and nice attitudes. regards Bjørn Erik Henriksen
  2. Hi there! I only recently purchased the Airbus X and would like to share my view on this addon. You guys at Aerosoft probably won`t like all of it though. Lets start with the engine start. I have read that the normal FSX engine start (rapid spool up) is there because you didn`t want to code your own engines, You were worried about FPS loss and something about a weather engine conflict. I think that all it comes down to, is that it was easier this way. I just hope the advanced version will have custom coded engines. My next issue is the way the bus follows the flight plan. It overshoots every waypoint if the turn has an angle of more than 25-30 degrees. Neither the FSX ATC or Radar Contact is pleased with the way the bus drifts the corners. My last issue is the bug with the TOC/TOD when you have more than 5 waypoints before/after these. I think that is sloppy. Enough said. Positives? Sure... Beutiful visual model, Nice cockpit lighting (even if it`s only on/off) and a very nice VC. I just don`t think that the few positives makes up for the rather nasty issues. You could really have a top notch product if you could fix these issues. Now let`s see how long it takes before this post is locked or deleted. regards Bjørn Erik Henriksen

    Twin Otter Prop RPM

    Well.. I haven`t really tried that, but if that works it won`t change the fact that my hardware doesn`t.

    Twin Otter Prop RPM

    Hi there. I`m having a small "issue" with the Twin otter. I`m using the Saitek throttle control to adjust the Prop RPM, but the lowest setting i get is approx 75% RPM. This is achieved when the Prop levers is pulled back all the way. It should really have fethered the props at that setting. Are there any tweaks or fixes for this? If I could figure this out it would make the Twin Otter the ace of my collection.

    Twin Otter Repaints

    Hi All. If anyone wants to get hold of any of my released Twotter repaints, I still have copies of them backed up. Sadly I lost several other repaints when Avsim went down. Give me a holler if needed. regards Bjørn E. Henriksen

    Wilco Airbus 1

    "CTR TK FEEDG" is a message that tells you that the center tank is feeding fuel to the engines. You need to start the flight with empty center tanks to avoid the message. It will of course also extinguish when the center tank is empty. You can also turn off the center tank pumps, but then you would get another message about the center tank pumps.

    A36 Bonanza For Fsx ?

    It would have been better for you to ask that question in the dreamfleet forum, but i can answer it here anyway. They are planning FSX release of the A36 either after the Dakota release or after the Archer III release. They has a poll on the forum asking for the customers opinion on which of the two they would like to see in FSX first. The majority would like to see the A36 first. regards Bjørn E.

    Twin Otter Flight Dynamics question

    And it is a joy to fly the twotter with the new flight model.

    additional Twin Otter Liveries

    Well... If you read through this thread, you will see that i have done Aeropelican VH-KZO in two slightly different liveries. Have been tweaking the text on the side. Just need to do the thumbnails before release.
  10. I think you can go better at Vancouver harbour or Vancouver international if you have the scenery for it. (since the floats are painted in canadian liveries) :wink: Sitka will be my first choice when tongass X is released.

    Twin Otter 102, the unmentional update

    Can`t find it in the FAQ / Support section. Only see the 1.01 unofficial update there.

    Fun with Otter X - My Personal Livery

    Nah... That would probably only turn the runway into a whale or something.
