Do you like the mooney "Bravo". It is my favorite plane and the one that I have my most hours on. (on the flight simulator) one time my ground speed was 240 knots!

Dont mean anything angainst you, but I hate that plane like none other. Did you notice that it will slowly turn itself to the right, even if the torque and other realistm settings are off. Thats what bugs me about it. If it didn't do that, i'd love it!

Are you sure that your fuel was balanced correctl? On the mooney you don't have the choice of "both" on the fuel tank selector.

I've never had that problem. It works fine for me. The reason I like the Mooney so much is because of the speed.

Yes, the Mooney is a fast single engine a/c . It has decent range and a ceiling well over 20,000 feet. Very Happy The Bravo is one of my favorite prop a/c. I agree with FEM about its pull to the right. That's a negative.

My vote is "Yes". Out of the SEP's on offer I think the Mooney is the best for several reasons mainly those pointed out in the previous post. I always liked the Mooney since its introduction as it offered the IFR panel which came in handy during IFR training. Had not noticed the pull, will now have to give it a go!

The mooney has always been my favorite prop. I occasionally notice the pull, but it's not that hard to compensate for. I've logged more hours on that prop than any other. I've been slowly working on a VFR across the country (possibly around the world) in that. I learned more about small planes from that than working with the cessna in the lessons.

I downloaded some "vintage" re-paints for the model. It actually makes the plane more of a pleasure to fly, especially since the interior got a make over as well. The onlything that needed alteration was the transparency of the propeller, but that can be done by copying one of the default bmp's.

I Love flying that plane as well. Its much easier to fly and land than any other planes I have downloaded on my flight sim. I have one problem though, I have a jet downloaded but the gauges dont work at all. Should I try to reintall the plane or put gauges from another aircraft in the gauges folder for the aircraft that the gauges dont work for? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
