    Problems with de ice

    A lot of planes have the same problem after 1.30: Solvable by assigning a hotkey to wing de-icing. Is supposed to get fixed in 1.5.2.

    Bug Report

    AFAIK it's an old plane and the GPS isn't coupled with the autopilot, it's only a guide for you. The OMNI is only for radio navigation.

    Cessna 310L v1.0.9 Update Released!

    Did some rounds around Mallorca, oh my do I love this little devil I guess it was a thing already in the prior patches but also realized the cowl flaps setting actually has an influence on the temperature indicator and it changes very gradually and naturally. Well I also managed to mess up one of my engines, by (I guess) overusing the primer during low temperature. How do I get rid of the fuel? Dry motoring? How, when the condition lever automatically goes up when I'm starting the engine? Wow, a short guide on the new engine operation would be great for piston newbies like me, because when I try to google piston-related questions I'm only getting topics with tens of sides of arguing about the magical rituals around the engines no one can agree on, lol

    Cessna 310L v1.0.9 Update Released!

    Wow, thanks, this wonderful plane gets better and better I really love the new subtle reflections. And I can fly with green windows now! I will test all the new features thoroughly, but for now I can co confirm the same problem Ezaviation has - the magneto switches and the bar above them don't work. But you can still fire up the engine and fly. EDIT: But I'm also no sure about the custom starting mechanic. I did change the weather to -23C and it still started immediately up just by pressing the engine start button and worked totally fine during the takeoff and flight.

    Thank You Thread

    I'm flying the plane for like a month now and would like to say thank you to the maker. It's really one of my favorite aircraft due to how much character it has. What I especially like: 1. I really like the weight and balance menu, with all the small compartments you can open and fill with cargo to change the center of gravity. It's a lot of fun to play with. Especially in FSE, when I'm often almost fully loaded/fueled up it's a real challenge to get right. Great fun 2. I love the auxiliary tanks and that you have to switch to them manually and monitor when to change them again. I'm totally into micro-managing like this 3. Also, the mixture model seems very nice. It's a lot of fun to manage all the combinations of the 3 levers to get your performance/fuel ratio right. 4. The oldie-Cadillac-like interior is superb. Even better when you add to it the various coloring/texturing options from taildraggin68. With so many options it never gets boring inside 5. Many of the sounds are really great. I love the gulping sound of the pumps and the irregular sound of the engines. 6. It flies as fast as the devil and can take a lot of people for the ride - very useful for FSE 7. The GPS that isn't coupled with the autopilot. Great, I love my planes to be different and seriously have enough of G530 planes where I use it in the same way. I like that this is different and it adds to the retro-feel. 8. Bending wings! Neutral things: 1. Some of the elements of the dashboard seem a little low-res, but it just means that you have to select a higher anti-aliasing setting, which is entirely OK with this plane as it has a very small performance impact. With higher anti-aliasing it looks great. 2. The landing lights' light shines through the model of the wings. But this seems not fixable as it is like this in XP I guess. 3. The green window with the color-screws/bolts in it. Well I know the real life model has it, but I don't think the XP engine really does them justice. The reflection on green glass seem less realistic and uglier than the ones on the clear one. Luckily it's totally a matter of taste and easily changeable to clear. Things I would love changing: 1. The condition lever that gets automatically up when you start the motor feels very arcade'y for a simulator. Let me do it! 2. More working buttons It doesn't need to be a study-level simulation with fouling plugs etc. It's enough when there is any use for a button/switch and some effect in some circumstances. Just to make it more fun and immersive. It's a lovely plane and I'm sure it will get even better! Thanks again!

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    Hi, So I've tried it with plugins and without plugins and don't see any difference. It might be a faulty installation, but it's strange that Chase911 would have the same one. As I understand you can't reproduce it on your end? Also, there are no touchdown sounds hearable from the interior and no flaps sounds. I guess the aircraft is large enough for the flaps themselves to not be audible, but it's the only aircraft I own that doesn't have any audible feedback for the flap lever. Is it like this in the real Saab? The touchdown/rolling sounds you can hear on the outside are rally cool. Or maybe it's my faulty installation striking again

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    Hi, thanks for trying to help me As far as I know I don't have any environmental ones. That's my plugin list (Flywithlua is from today, so it cannot be the cause): Dreamengine is a native sound mod of the Embraer 110, the smart things are also from the Emb. EDIT: For clarity added the plugin list that is active while flying the Saab and not another plane as well as the log. Log.txt

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    Hi! Any info on the windshield smears? Maybe it's something on my side and I can fix it somehow? I would like to use the wipers, I love that they move so fast and loud and are totally stressing me out while landing, but the smears are too much

    RNAV LOC approach using VS ?

    On the thrust console/central panel between the seats where the autopilot is activated is also a round black adjuster. It has rings around it and one ring on the top in the center. The ring on the top goes -VS (to the front) and +VS (to the back). Simply turning it a little bit and holding will increase the vertical speed in the direction you want to (don't need to drag it across half the cockpit like I did, it's sensitive to time and not distance :>). In the options there is the option to activate a helper that will show you the current VS information in the top of the screen (similar like there is one for the HDG knob), so you don't have to look at both the adjuster and the main electronic display at the same time to check how much you have changed it.

    Hard to switch from Heading mode to NAV-mode

    CDI button on the Garmin 530? I'm not sure if I understand what the problem is For me it works like in other planes. EDIT: Oh I guess now I understand. You just want to use the localizer for lateral navigation and don't want to use the approach functionality? No idea, haven't tried it

    IAS and CLIMB mode not working

    If the vertical modes aren't working try to adjust the target altitude ("ALTITUDE SET") even slightly. They should start to work.

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    I actually wish 2.0 won't come too fast. My computer is pretty much at the edge of running the current Saab in an acceptable manner. As the new model is supposed to be more detailed I will probably buy it and then have to buy some better hardware right away

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    Well, not only me It kind of looks like the prop wash in my Quest Kodiak that got bugged with the particle changes (or it's totally coincidental):

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    Sorry it might have been me, who gave him the wrong idea So... coming back to the windshield effect. Am I using low quality windshield washer fluid or can it be somehow fixed?

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    I would say the sale is probably more related to the competing product (which for me as consumer is great :>). As for 2.0... I saw it mentioned already as early as in 2016, so it's not a new idea, most people knew it was coming someday in the future
