Re: Carb Heat

With all that, though, I believe (at least it seems to for me) that if you use the (default) FSX key assignment of "h", you will move the Blower lever to the "full" position and engage Carb heat. Clicking it again toggles the lever back again.

Re: 0.85 Starting Issues

That's good information to know. Thanks for the reply and for the discussion of where you're headed in working to resolve this. In the meantime, I'll be sure to talk with my mechanic and have him take a look at the electrical components prior to each flight!

0.85 Starting Issues

I am on Ver 0.85 with the 0.8502 dll. I'm running FSX-SE. The starter issue is that when loading the plane and a...

Re: Tribute Flight - Gorlitz to Spremberg Welzow: Part 1

Ah yes, the missing umlaut. Apologies for my laziness! :lol: We have cities like you describe here as well. It can be strange to think about cities and towns having "lives" with different phases, just like people, and can be sad to see a place that was once thriving reduced to much less, after its l...

Re: Oil issues

Not to "pile on", but just to give a sense of how prevalent this might be, I also have the same issue with oil pressure.

Re: Tribute Flight - Gorlitz to Spremberg Welzow: Part 1

Thanks Otmar. I hoped you'd enjoy it. That's a great photo. Looks really nice, and not at all like where I live here in Texas! We had the pleasure of taking a trip last summer along the Rhine and loved that. We hope to make it farther east before too long. I have Orbx Germany (both North and South) ...

Tribute Flight - Gorlitz to Spremberg Welzow: Part 3
