Re: What go into those Lockheed boys?

Very interesting Information from Tailspin (as usual) :)
I wonder why Allan Loughead changed his name, though. Was it like he started the Lockheed Corp. first (still named Loughead), and then he changed the name afterwards. To make it match the company's name?

I stick to the suggested power settings all times, or even below (as I usually don't fly her fully packed with passengers).

Unfortunately, again I experienced very high temperatures during three of the flights. Here are some Details: 1 - from Ch...

Heat exchange and electrical system

Hello, first I have to thank you for this amazing add-on! Although in Early Access state I find it bringing up a huge immersion factor and it did force me to "learn flying again", without all the fancy nav aids. There's also a lot of eye candy, but unlike some other (just) good looking add-ons I fee...
