  1. Yes,indeed,the problem lies in Active Sky.I subsequently modified the parameters and never got this sort of conditions again.Thank you so much for taking an interest,sorry I just now found your post.
  2. Hello.I am somewhat concerned about a recent flight with the DC-8 that ended in a crash.The flight was from Denpasar,Bali to Brunei airport,Brunei.The plane was loaded to the max and sufficient fuel was taken in.The outside temp was 31 degrees Celsius.Now,I know that these are not beginner conditions,but then again, I am not a beginning pilot. After take-off we got into a massive storm front,no way to fly around it.I initially managed a climb into the low 30's (FL 340),but I was unable to hold it,of course,so I gradually lowered the altitude.As I was flying in a storm,I had all my anti-ice equipment working.As long as I was descending,the speeds were acceptable.But at each lower altitude that I leveled out,I was unable to hold her there.I used the tables (Maximum continuous thrust vs RAT temperature) to try and keep level.Eventually,I got below 10000 feet, which is below the local MDA,but she kept descending.Eventually she crashed.I have to say that I always use Active Sky P3Dv4 and there probably lies the problem.But should a realistic flight model,like the Aerosoft DC8 has,not be able to take some punishment? I really like this plane.And I am very choosy about my software planes.I only trust PMDG,A2A,Milviz,FSlabs,Leonardo Software,Majestic and Aerosoft.Could any of you experienced simpilots give your opinion on this,please?
  3. Hey,would anyone know when the alternate fill valves are actually used in this airplane?

  5. Unfortunately not.I save my flight at the parking spot and restart from there,always.
  6. Thank you Michael! Once again,thank you for all the amazing work you continue to do on this unique simulation.You are a great support to all of us oldtimer lovers.
  7. On the flight compartment checklist there is the item:"Ground spoiler switch NORMAL." Try as I may,I cannot find this switch in the cockpit.Could anyone point it out for me please?
  8. I have the shaking issue also.I am running P3D v4.5 and that is also the version that has the hydraulic problems.Maybe this is a P3D problem,after all. I am running the dc8 on windows 10,along with ASN and GTX world scenery and vector.
  9. The problem where the hydraulic system fails and you can only reset it by assigning a key to eliminate all hydraulic failures.Look in this forum,it is there.I am not the one who saw it first.But I am also experiencing it.
  10. A while ago some people mentioned some problems with the hydraulic system.I recently reinstalled the dc8 latest version and I still seem to have that same problem.I get around it by assigning a key to eliminate the hydraulic system failures and so, I can fly the bird without to much problems.Is this problem worked on though?

    That is very interesting.I did try the normal procedure with bleed air from the other engines(bleed air valve open,pneumatics from the other engines on high) but it did not work.I will try to recreate this in one of my future flights.Thanks for the update Mace!

    Hi, I accidentally shut down an engine inflight.I tried to restart it,but to no avail.Does anyone know what the procedure is to restart an engine inflight?And has anyone been able to do so in this simulation aircraft?I landed the aircraft without any problems on 3 engines but next time I would really like to be able to restart the engine.So,if anyone has any knowledge about doing so in this Aerosoft DC-8,please let me know. Thank you.
  13. Hey guys,great news:you can get the ADF ident by putting the ADF switch on the pedestal to BOTH
  14. Hi, I really love this airplane and am amazed what Aerosoft managed to create .I went through the manual but there are a few things I cannot find:First,how do you ident the ADF signal? I can ident NAV1 and NAV2 but not the ADF.Secondly,according to the checklist there is a ground spoiler SWITCH.I looked all over but cannot find it.Last,the checklist talks about "preferential circuit test". Anyone any ideas what this refers to?Thank you for any answers here!
  15. Having exactly the same problem.One just cannot do this test.Something is wrong here Aerosoft.
  16. Thanks for the Eastern download!Great stuff!
