I love using my TrackIR to look around the virtual cockpit but most add on aircraft I download don't come with VC's. Can anyone suggest some really nice aircraft that have VC's please?
Try the Howard, if you like it you can get quite a few repaints now.
Thanks RM, that's a great aircraft!
Couple of questions on it though, how the hell do you steer it and also how do you stop it flipping over when braking on a landing roll?
You should be able to use the twist on your joystick.
You may be coming in to fast.
Landing a tail-dragger, you have to land on the main gears and slowly let her settle down on her tail, then pump the breaks ever so gently or yes they do flip.
I don't have a twist joystick for the rudder unfortunately. I can either switch off the num-lock key and use the numeric keypad for the rudder or I normally have auto-rudder set which gives me steering of aircraft with nose-wheels.
I landed quite nicely in a flare at a good speed and as soon as I applied the brakes the tail started to come up. So you're saying I should "cadence" brake (like what you'd do in a car on snow)?
Nice aircraft though!
Right, as the tail settles down by itself you are going slower and pumping the breaks like you do in snow is the way to go, but not as often.
Pump 2-3-4 pump 2-3-4pump
You are landing at 65-75 kias and let it slow by itself.
Thanks!! Not so good on a short strip but will do that.
I land my DC-3 on roads and fields, come in slow and low, it's like the barnstorming days. Use the full flaps as you land.
