  1. Twin Otter ground friction.

    Ground friction is not something Yu "Just" can tweak, since it´s hardcoded in bothe FSX and P3D. With P3D V4.1 there has been some fixes to the ground behaviour, but I have not tested what influence this has on the Twin Otter. If You have a registrated version of FSUIPC, thn there are some entries in it´s ini file that can tweak ground friction. Personally I would not keep away from an addon just because this 2 second of excessive requirement of power to break free, also because most other addons doesn´t behave right either. With FSX/P3D turboprops this is somewhat more exaggregated, due to the slow spool up time. next time try to give less power and be patient to see the power actually build up and get the aircraft start rolling.

  2. CRJ Too many problems

    This is a FSX/P3D "Feature" also present in most other addon aircraft and not a particular Aerosoft CRJ700/900 problem ! Are You sure that this isn´t due to the MCDU autotuning VOR's for positional updates ? Strange ... I have done numreous flights from A to B with no problems. That said that there aren´t any bugs left, but none of them really showstoppers. We still got a few updates after release and I´m sure more are in the pipeline. FinnJ
  3. Engines out - but why?

    Hi Mark Next time open the Checklist/Config panel (Sh+2) and go to the config page. You might be able to see that also structural icing is starting to occur on the bar graph. Like Mathijs said - it´s most probably engine icing, which fit´s to Your OAT readings. Parameters that adds a chance for engine icingcausing wngine failure are: (OAT between ÷10-2°C AND (Any kind of precipitation OR Visibility below 1700 meters )) OR Structural icing building up Tor clear the engines, You must either apply engine de-icers, or get into warmer air (above 2°C) inorder to thaw the engine inlets, which only happens gradually Best regards Finn.
  4. Twin Otter Extended Extended?

    Back when it was developed we recreated the exact cockpit if the D-IVER. So what You see in the Twin Otter Extended cockpit is the exact same instruments than those found in the real world D-IVER. The only extra instrument we placed was the GPS. A secondary attitude indicator is, as far as I know, not required for IFR flights, but You have both the Cpt. and the FO instruments.
  5. Yes - it should also work for FSX, FSX:SE and P3D V1-4
  6. Bronco Selector window not showing

    Hi Michael Try to re-download the fix in the other thread again: It should fix the engine selector panel as well now. Best regards Finn
  7. This is a possible fix for the Bronco engines quitting when one tank runs dry. Please test and report if it fixes it. Unzip the content into: \\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects\Airplanes\Aerosoft OV-10B\Panel\ Backup the old OV10a_Sys.Cab first ! Regards Finn
  8. Weather Radar & TCAS: Dysfunctional?

    I think that gain should be generally increased. Looking right into a thunderstorm I see green placards. Turning the gain all up to +3 displays purple areas, just what I would expect for Normal gain setting. This is offcourse totally without any firm knowledge about what would be realistically correct - just an observation and personal impression.
  9. The Antarctica Polar version still needs it´s own hotfix 1-4 update, but none of the hotfixes include flightmodel changes. I use the Twin Otter (standalone version) myself in P3D V3 with no issues. I only need to test if the Flightrecorder also works as advertised witin P3D V3. I´m not sure why You sa: "The real aircraft is much easier to fly than this"... During developement we had a reallife Twin Otter pilot and serveral other experts to check the flightmodel and they found the flightmodel quite accurate. Does Your statement mean that Your a reallife Twin Otter pilot too , or do You just anticipate the Aerosoft Twin otter not to be accurate because You expected it to behave differently ? Finn
  10. reverse to idle

    FSX (Prepar3D) has some "not-so-fine" quirks when it comes to turboprop simulation. Though we have managed to overcome some of the issues, the base FSX turboprop still shows it´s ugly head under certain circumstances. Annoying, but not something we can do much about. The only other solution would be to bring the entire flight and engine model outside FSX the way Majestic has done it on their Dash 8, but that would definitely also mean that we would have to put a different pricetag on the Twin Otter. It can be lessened by being very carefull moving the throttles from reverse and into idle. Finn
  11. The shockwave lights should be unaffected, but any anel chnages will be reset to default. Finn
  12. Ezdok and Checklist Cameras

    Any additional cameras that are added by others (manually, Ezdoc, etc.) will corrupt the Twin Otter viewing system. Finn
  13. New Download link Updated 2015-08-18 !!! This is a complete set of corrections including Hotfix 1, 2,3 & 4, to be applied on Twin Otter Extended Version 1.11. Hotfix 1 took care of the runaway elevator trim when disengaging the autopilot.Hotfix 2 changed the Autopilot Go-Around (GA) mode logic.Hotfix 3 solves the problem with the ADF not being able to be set to .5 Khz.Hotfix 4 fixes a problem with the electrical logic for the fuel boost pumps. The real Bendix King KR 87 TSO does not have any decimal settings, thus this cannot be set. In reallife though, the ADF radio is able to pickup frequencies, even if the exact frequency isn't set, just like when You tune Your FM radio, reception is still possible, though a bit distorted, when You get near the exact frequency. In FSX the frequency must be set exactly to the correct frequency to work. Hotfix 3 will make the ADF scan between the set frequency - f.ex 341 i.e 341.0 and 341.5 and then lock to the frequency where it receives a signal. This means that if Your naviagtion chart tells You that the NDB You like to tune is at 341.5, then simply set the ADF frequency to 341 and the ADF will then toggle between 341.0 and 341.5 with an interval of 5 seconds. If the ADF then picks up a signal on 341.5, then it will stay there and stop toggling. This is very much the same function as can be set via FSUIPC. Download Hotfix1-4 complete: Then unzip and overwrite into: \\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\ Since the other Twin Otter models uses (Aliases) the gauges and systeme logics from the -300 Wheels, the fixes will also be active for those.

  14. Solved Twin otter extended and F1 GTN

    While I would like to see the GTN in the Twin Otter too, I still find it weird if it´s really the option to add the GTN or not, that makes the difference wether an addon is worth flying or not. But it´s offcourse up to You. Finn
  15. Solved Twin otter extended and F1 GTN

    Trachemys.... Please also consider the pricetag on those addons You mention. Also note that those addons only comes with one aurcraft version, while the Twin Otter comes with 11. All those 11 versions would need the "GTN treatment". Finn
