Re: AI Oleo Compression

Thanks very much for the advice, John It's always good to try out something new, although the Andover is somewhat ahead on the to-do list.

Re: AI Oleo Compression

Hi John,

I'd be interested in that tutorial, too. Also, planning ahead, wondering about how to achieve the "kneel" with an Andover with the ramp down..

Re: Sometimes you just have to take a picture

What are landings like? Is there any scope to avoid special afcad files?

Go to Avsimrus and search for file 61376-mi-8vvs.zip, which has quite a few.

Thankyou. I think these are what I tried to use last time, but maybe I'll take a deep breath and try again. Have you used these yourself?

Re: SBAI MI8

Did anyone ever have success in building AFCAD's for these Mi-8's? They look great and they take off and fly beautifully, but they never land or park correctly using a "conventional" AFCAD. I tried years ago building special AFCAD's based on instructions from SBAI, but I never had any success and ga...

Re: Agusta A109's

John, With so many variant possibilities, ultimately "generic" civilian can only mean exactly that, with a consequent loss of accuracy for any given sub type. Some can live with that, some not, personally I can. On the other hand, it's not worth the candle for two specific helicopters at Boscombe. M...

Re: Agusta A109's

John,

If you were to go ahead, G-INFO shows the A109E to be the most numerous variant on the UK register, and it's been used for example by Qinetiq, examples being G-ETPI and G-ETPJ.

Re: Agusta A109's

Thankyou John, great work as ever. Earlier on, you'd mentioned a generic civilian variant. Did that one not make it? I suspect there might be too many variations for it to be really practicable.

Re: Scenery: Beja AB Portugal

I know this is an old thread, but Beja is new in my set up. Everything has installed okay, except that the trees are not textured. I have all the files mentioned in the readme, and I believe the scenery file order is correct. Does anyone know the necessary tree texture file, or how I could identify ...

Re: UH-72A Lakota

On the Agusta A109 thread today, there's an image showing the A109's and NH-90's together. The NH-90s have lights, and also a nice animated lift, it seems, so I wondered what technique was used to achieve the lights.

Re: Scenery: Holzdorf AB (ETSH) - Luftwaffe

Thanks Gert,

I'm pretty sure I don't have all of those installed, so that'll fix it. I'm slowly adding locations to use NH-90's, so your De Kooy and Hyérès sceneries have already found their way into my set up.

Cheers,

Re: Scenery: Holzdorf AB (ETSH) - Luftwaffe

I've only lately picked up Gert's excellent bases around Europe. I added ETSH yesterday, but I have some grey buildings. What texture(s) am I lacking?

Re: Saab MFI-17

I'm very sorry about the bouncy taxiing that some have experienced with my MFI-17. I am a total novice modeller, which undoubtedly doesn't help, but I am perplexed as to why some people have the problem and some do not. Nevertheless, I want to get to grips with this, as I want to make more models, a...

Re: Saab MFI-17

I had no issues in FS9, but I have had one report of bouncing with an unconverted model in FSX. I didn't mention it previously as it was the only one. It was curable with a substitute .air file, but I'd be interested in further feedback from Gavin as it seemed to work fine post conversion in his set...

Re: Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary

Thankyou, that's perfect, John.

I am in a sunny Kent today, in Canterbury, and a Spitfire has not long passed overhead. The sound of a Merlin was never more appropriate, and very moving.
