Re: 1912 - Release Candidate

Extra 330XL (2019-02-25):
Air resistance too high. Try switch engine off and do emergency landing.
Compare against Trojan or Extra300, they have good gliding performance.

Re: 1912 - Release Candidate

Extra 330: Seitenruder Wirkung müsste ca 20% mehr sein. Höhenruder wirkt monstermässig, so dass Rückentrudeln sehr einfach ist (zu einfach für meinen Geschmack ). Aber Messerflug Looping ist im Vergleich dazu viel zu schwierig. Piper: Verhalten im Torque Training ist unrealistisch, sie geht trotz V...

Re: 1906

Tortuga flying good now, thank you for fixing. Model Selection: Plane filter 'Scale' should not show Edge540v3_FC. Put it to 'Trainer'. Add engine type 'none' for gliders (possibly a feature for 8.1). Filter >2m (greater!) should not include planes with a wing span of exactly 2m (sorry for nitpickin...

Re: 1906

- You should not show RES, Trojan, Extra300, and Extra330, if filter for planes is set to >2.0m.
- Ground handling of Extra300 much better now :-)

Re: 1903

Some reported issues from former versions are still open. Please comment, if some issues are not applicable, or not possible to fix. I can confirm the crash issue. Micheal, for gliders the wind noise is okay. Possibly you can manage to increase the volume of the wind noise for motorized aircrafts i...

Re: 1903

I've configured a switch for autorotation. In conjunction with planes, switching to autorotation turns off the smoke of the engine, but the prop does not stop spinning. It would be nice, if the engine stops completely, and thrust becomes zero (not reducing idle speed as seen in the status bar).
