  1. A thing that has always irked me about this model - the engine cowling is in only three pieces. A Supercub has a belly cowl, two side cowls which attach to the belly cowl with brackets and dzus fasteners and a top cowl. The top cowl attaches to the side cowls with a piano hinge on either side. These hinges are missing on this cub - no reaction when brought to their attention. A small thing perhaps but not when you're coughing up $40+.
  2. Why do I look at that and think "now that's a tidied up Seabee". Same thing but a lot smoother and the Seabee didn't have a blonde wearing a David Clarke headset.
  3. Got my CFI in one of these back in '69. The FAA examiner refused to ride through 'demonstrated spins' so observed from the ground. I think all I did was drop a wing one way then the other - don't think it was a spinner nor much of anything, as a real airplane - the '235' was a good one.
  4. Hope this bodes well for a similar update of their Twin Comanche.
  5. Stephen - I was very interested in a review of the Hotstart TBM790 and how closely it related to its $64.95 asking price.
  6. As always a thorough and excellent review. Had the original and used the discount - excellent decision. It always was a sweet flyer but now looks the part.
  7. Much as I admire the detail of this model, the addition of 'gadgetry' to justify a higher price does not sit well with me. The need for this stuff is obviously out there or they wouldn't sell but a few simmers, like me, have 'been there, done that' in real life and would prefer a more 'bare bones (cheaper) version.
  8. Though I'm still on 11.25, decided to give it a go and verified it will not run - crashed on load up. So until the 11.30 release for the faint of heart appears, it's a waiting game but you make it sound worth it.
  9. Would by it in a minute without that immersion package. Same thing with A2A on the other platforms. A lot of us have 'been there, done that' and just want to fly.
  10. I'm so close. Did as you advised and have several planes (red dots) at the airport - more reading on tap. What key exits the "Key Command Menu"? (got it - 'backspace'). Update - noticed in my rush to implementation I neglected to download all four Airbuses and Boeings. Did that so I may be good.
  11. Progress is right around the corner. I did as you said and the first time I clicked on "create flights" it advised to 'disable AFRE auto generated'. The second time it told me to 'enable cargo'. Here is what I get this a.m. - #1 went through "create flights" (your example) apparently without a hitch but left me with shot #2. In #3 only two aircraft parked a LAX and one of them is the one I loaded.
  12. Your review is bookmarked and I'm getting there - thanks for your 'setup'. Entered your setup and created ground routes for destination KSFO (got a whole laundry list) - it says ground routes for LAX already created. Still nothing parked at LAX except me. My entries into XP11 look the same as yours and I've downloaded routes and planes - wonder what I'm not doing? Attached a log. GroundRouteAutoGenLog.zip
  13. I've learned more about LAX this afternoon reading your review than I have in the week or so since purchase. Now if I can just get my head around WT3, we'll see some action.
  14. For all 172N owners, Bill Womack has a nice 'freeware' HD black panel for this plane - https://iblueyonder.com/freeware/
  15. I'm confused - bought this in March. Does your review cover an update or is nothing new? Disregard - this is the same version I bought.
  16. Since this is essentially a beta, is every update to cost $24.95 - could get a bit pricey.
  17. I pasted the registration number as requested and clicked reload. Unin/reinstalled and all's well.
