Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Ski/Wheel: unable to lower skis?

Recommended Posts

First and foremost congratulations on another fine aircraft - I have been buying Aerosoft products since they ams out with the F-16 Fighting Falcon in 2008 - still the best F-16 on the market.

Second let me say that I'm not upset, put off, etc by the whole skis fixed, wheels not rotating, etc. Mr Kok & company made a design/business decision forced by the limits of FSX - no big deal in my book. This is a GREAT airplane.

That said, like most of us, I fly from inside the cockpit. Maybe if I twisted my neck and opened the door during taxi and takeoff I would notice the main mounts not rolling on asphalt, albeit probably not correct take off procedure ;)

However, there is a big Skis up / down gauge with a nicely modeled lever right there in front of me. Even though the skis don't move, I would suggest that at least that be made to "work" i.e. the lever move and the lights change.

I realize that to have a techncally non-functional lever/gauge is an anathema to some. However, there is a Fan switch that, as part of the preflight check list, I move into the off position. Perhaps it changes the power drain a tiny bit but I have not noticed any and more importantly I have never felt any airflow change - simulated or real. ;)

Anyway - just a suggestion - like I said above - a great plane!

Now I got to go get my Ski Twotter off a frozen lake in Alaska - didn't follow correct procedure and blew an engine after landing - smoke, alarms, pulling the fire handle, emergency shut down - great adrenaline rush! - I figure it's "fixed" now. :)
