ok, you know i want sim to be as real as possible. I've noticed not real stall speeds on mike stone's planes(example: the L1011 stalls at like 105 kts). Now his c130 i am using stalls at like 80kts, i have no idea is that like real or not(i don't know the stall speed). Can anyone tell me the stall speed, Thanks Very Happy !

PS: i am not afraid of stall speed too high, i am afraid that 80kts stall speed is too low.(i mean what if it stalls like 100kts in real world)
We have reached our cruising altitude,I am going to switch the seat belt sign off. Feel free to move about as you wish, but please stay inside the plane till we land ... it's a bit cold outside, and if you walk on the wings it affects the flight pattern.

Thank you so much Very Happy ! But i think 115mph is something like 95 to 100kts Rolling Eyes !

I last flew C-130s like 35 years ago, E and H models. We lost an airplane over a dry lake bed in California during a night drop mission due to an error in flap settings. So, stall speeds were permanently marked on my brain. Don't know about Js, but H and E models had different stall speeds depending on flap settings. Believe stall speed for 50% flaps was 89kts, stall speed for 100% flaps was 91kts. Our incident airplane was flying as slow as possible with 50% flaps selected, (91 kts) looking for the drop zone. The co-pilot thought that was too close for comfort and selected 100% flaps, thinking stall speed would be lower. He was wrong.
