  1. thanks Mark thanks Finn. mark yes I will try your proposal. -edit Mark I am actually using Lua files to drive my controller, so I just added a line for each hardware controller (prop lever) in each lua script to force it all the way back. eg left engine I added line. this force it into feather. ipc.control(66006, -16384) all working 100% now and all the time I was thinking it was feathered. O'boy now it is working so nice.!
  2. Stop the horses - Found the issue ..! I think I sorted the problem. When the I closed the prop lever it did not go all the way back. When I click the prop levers and drag them still another 1 mm, then the engine feather and then the rundown is very short. Sorry for wasting your times. Just a computer pilot pleb..! Will have to make sure prop levers get properly closed. Seem to me the control to close the prop lever is not working so good. (was only bringing it to 0% but not in feathered position - you can clearly hear the engine being feather when you pulled back prop levers that little bit more back with mouse - 14-16 seconds mark). So when I use the mouse it seem I prop lever can go that very little further back to feather engine. So I will try and solve my prop lever control. (would prefer not to use the mouse as I have a simple pc "cockpit build" for the twin otter). I am a happy chappy...!!
  3. Captain crash thank you kindly for taking the time to explain. Then it is 100% with me. I also understand it is free running. I am just so used to the very short engine stop time of old version. Edit Just did a flight and shutdown according to your checklist. Would you be so kind to watch and explain what I am doing wrong as the props still take forever to run down. I have not yet seen a real live video where the props run down so long. So obviously I am doing something wrong, the fuel was cut at about 22 seconds and the blades only stopped at 4:22, meaning the run down is basically 4 minutes. Please help me understand what I am doing wrong. in this video you can see how quickly the engine stops in real earoplane
  4. Ok I notice the shutdown is way longer than original version. It that suppose to run down over 3 minutes old shutdown https://youtu.be/3GVpT_BIRIA new adjusted files shutdown https://youtu.be/s_FNJcJkvCI

  9. Well can anybody help as I dotn get any answer from Mr kok. According to the link below is an update available for catalina to take it to version 1.2 --------------- Sent 29 July 2012 - 09:28 AM I have been searching for this update. I cannot find it under the update files. http://forum.aerosof...atalina-update/ According to my aerosoft launcher I still have version 1.11. When I let the launcher check for updates it also do not find any update for the catalina Can you perhaps shed more light where this update is? thank you

  12. that weird blue thing is the diamond aircraft corporation logo.. Google is your friend. enter diamond aircraft logo.. see images.. it is sometimes white and sometimes blue. Mostly blue.. now that is some detail hey..!!
  13. Thanks Finn I just fly the plane from "ready to taxi" but before takeoff I now just do a quick F2 and then F1 and then it always work when I get to land and have to use reverse thrust. According to me when "ready to taxi" the startlocks must have been removed already as part of the "phase" Ready to taxi, as I do not experience any problem taking off and flying. As I said after doing it once. It always work great and there is a really pronounce sound going in reverse thrust and I can see speed drop dramatically. if I do not do that and start plane ready to takeoff and just fly the first time I want to use it after landing, then there is no effect at all. Anyway, I am so used to do it now as pre takeoff, it dont really bother me anymore. Thanks again for an awesome plane
  14. Is that so mr Snave. Now who would have guessed that. I did read the manual and yes I know first time is removing start latches. When you start the plane ready for taxi, it should nto be neccesary to remove start latches (well I dont think so because ready for taxi mean ready to fly and you should not have any need to remove start latches). I am not talking about start from cold and dark. so please leave your comments for yourself if you dont know what you talking about. I prefer not to have your snave attitude support.
  15. Ok I found that when I am on ground after I loaded the plane the 1st time I use F2 (full reverse thrust) nothing happens - It is the same effect as if throttle has just been closed even though the sound tell a different story. Then I hit F1 to take it out of reverse thrust (throttle to Zero) and the second time onwards when I select F2 reverse thrust work 100% and I am actually going backwards. It seem to be only a problem right after the plane has been loaded.
  16. I have no clue how to fly this plane so shoot me down for what i am doing but after landing I hit F2 (reverse thrust) to stop this baby. You can definitely hear the reverse thrust kick in from the sound but I dont find that it actually slow down the plane at all. Runway speed just stay the same and the only noticeable little decrease that do happen after a long time seem to be the normal slowing of the plane. Is reverse thrust simulated here or does it not work. This way of using reverse thrust on other P&W PT-6 engines seem to radically slow down those planes (yes I know these engines are not P&W PT-6, so that is why I am asking) Any ideas? Should I be able to use reverse thrust or not on this plane. Regards
  17. araig I'll take it just as it is.. geesh, It is just a game.. Thanks for your time to do this for us plebs.
  18. I knew what you talking about. I load the plane in VC view Once loaded. I immediately "Reset" the plane :menu: Fight \ reset This seem to solve the issue for me. So from I got this to work for me, I always load and then reset. Standard practice for me. Never ever I got this issue again.
  19. +1 I like the "almost" Navy paint color scheme without the "silly grin"
  20. Dont see anything that it is released yet. Will this now be posted on my account at aerosoft ?
  21. Sorry also having no stuttering but then again I dont use logitech joystick..
  22. Well obviously you have not seen how many hours some people do spend flying simulators. I for one is one of that odd ones that would like the 1600 hours. 80 hours will be taken up like nothing within one month flying time.. (yeah 20hours a week is really not that much - remember some people have retired etc that have got the world of time available and thus would like to be as close as possible to real world time lines.) so even a mere 160 hours is not going to be sufficiant. plane engines is going to degrade wayyyyyyy to fast for me.
  23. Very nice and thank you looking forward to the repaint.. Still enjoying Tristan's version till we can get our dirty little hands on this one. Like the way it is a little bit "dirtied" up with exhaust smoke on sides etc..
