!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

DHC6 Twin Otter Extended (VC)

Recommended Posts

Dear Aerosoft Team

 

cant understand why is the Yoke movement not fully 90°degrees in the Twin Otter (Virtual Cockpit)   look on the new AN-2 or Default Cessna 172 /Maule etc ! 

 

 

Thank you

 

best regards

It's been a while since I was in the real thing, so I don't remember what the aileron deflection was when we did control checks. When the Aerosoft add-on was in development, there were several real world and current pilots that validated things like that. If you can come up with photos from a real Twin Otter (100-300, and the 400 separately) showing full travel aileron deflection each way, and if the sim VC is markedly different, it would likely be considered for a fix when/if the project is reopened. On the other hand, just comparing Twin Otter aileron deflection with a couple of sim add-ons isn't really valid.

Well maybe because it's not an AN-2 / Cessna 172 / Maule /etc. (!)

 

About 60 degrees looks normal (1:15):

Thanks, Mark. The depicted control check validates well that full aileron travel is something less than 90 degrees. The object of a control check is to get full deflection of the aileron and elevator, and the one in the video is a textbook example. If separate nosewheel steering is available (so the rudder pedals only control the rudder), you'd check the rudder for "full and free travel" too.

This are 60Degrees are 85°  the as the B737...  and on the Aerosoft Otter you have only 45°

Christian85, re: "cant understand why is the Yoke movement not fully 90°degrees in the Twin Otter (Virtual Cockpit)   look on the new AN-2 or Default Cessna 172 /Maule etc ! " (exclamation point in the original). The aileron deflection in the video (left pix) is somewhat less than 90 degrees (the left yoke horn is not vertically over the right one and the top of the yoke clipboard isn't vertical), and the Aerosoft one is less than that at least in the -300 version (right pix). However, since you're the first to comment on it since the extended version was released in early 2014 and the base before that, it appears that to most users, it's a big "so what?" As noted, it's highly unlikely the developer will work to change such a small cosmetic issue. It may be considered if/when the Twin Otter get the go-ahead for the "Extended extended" version.

I made a note of this any if we ever open the project will look at it again. We decided to do it as it is because of the rather silly animation of the yokes where they move to the final position in an accelerated rate.
