Excellent. Thanks. I'm just getting FSE set up so I'll ping you over on the other forums shortly.

Re: FSEconomy Users

Hey y'all. Not sure how I missed this one. Let's see, a group thing involving Wayne and Shawn...sounds like trouble to me. At least BR isn't here...is he? {quickly looks behind to make sure he's not lurking in the shadows]. I'd looked at FSE before but never quite got there...this soulds like fun, e...

Re: How not to reload

Yes it was a treat to fly with both you guys again. I've been "sporadic" lately, due to RW stuff.
I'm just relieved nobody has mentioned my taxiing yet...oops darn it.

How not to reload

So, there I was enjoying a filght down to SAN in my beloved Eaglesoft Twin Commanche, when a fellow pilot, The Big Meanie (BR) starts mocking and teasing. "The twin that goes as fast as a single". Then, he and The Evil Controller (SX) start laughing at how long the SAN loc approach is taking me. "If...

Ah, yeah that would be cool. The one I saw was firmly planted on the ground ( very firmly). Wayne, WoW is not likely to entice me, I don't have the time! Besides, you meet a better class of people at ZLA. I did recently pick up the Flight 1 ATR 72, which is a fun plane to fly. Cieling is about 20k a...

recent trip, first time into LAX

I travel moderately on business with my job, and while I've been at this a good few years and been over most of the reasonably populated parts of the country, I'd never flown into LAX before, until Monday night. Previously I've flow into San Diego, Burbank and John Wayne. Anyway, this was a trip dow...

On my way back from Colorado otherwise I'd be with you guys. Hope to be staying put at home for a while and to get in on some more flights!

Anyway, have fun!

Good luck Keith! I'll miss you on those Sunday nights, but heck, what you're doing makes a lot of sense. You know, I've been thinking about flying in some other areas and this could be a great excuse. It's like, you're moving out of town but we can all still come visit! Still, it is another chapter ...

Met a guy from Whitehorse a few years back. It was February and we were in Mexico. I asked him what he was missing back home at that time of year. He said actually they have a pretty big festival of some kind in February. The main feature of this is a really big sporting competition. The main event ...

Wayne, I hope to make this flight tonight. I think my knee can hold up post surgery (since, we all know, the rudder pressures in FS/xp are well short of those in RW) :D

I'll see y'all there.

yup, had a feeling the "X word" would get mentioned! :D I have rather a lot invested in FSX, although, who knows, maybe XP would be worth a try. I think, from reading, maybe just a little between the lines in Keith's post, neither is really a good substitue for that type of RW experience, which I re...

Steve, for the P factor question you'll have to await somone with better physics than I. On the rudder pedals, I was happy in the habit of having rudder applied throughout the turn, only to learn (in the FAA's very own book) that this is "wrong". The Flight 1 172 works fine the FAA way, but the Twin...

A very civilized discussion. Having recently been reading the Airplane Flying Handbook, I'd actually been playing around with this some in FS. So, at low speed, high power, the torque and P factor have the most influence, as the fin is less effective. What I was curious about was how well this was s...

Thanks Wayne. AOPA has some good stuff on the website too, I noticed. Y'all probably knew this but the FAA has a ton of pdfs on the web, shole books worth, which I'll be studying too. And finally, I just ordered the "FSX for real world pilots" book from Amazon. I know y'all are all X-plane disciples...
