really a beauty!!  I've installed these birds on dbw 1.71 (4.10.1 patch) but cockpit view doesn't work properly. It seems I'm missing some mod. Can anyone help? thanks in advance

There is need for more information to be able to solve your problem, it does not work neither is reversed, the view is wrong?

Hi: wonderful birds!!!!

 I've downloaded and installed several times and the same thing happens with cockpit view

I don't know the reason why... probably incompatible with some mod I'm using... but I have more than 100 enabled mods !! (some of them: true color texture mod for dbw, high res texture mod, 6DOF XY MOUSE by Pal, 24 bit skins)

thanks for your help and for your great contribution.

In one of these beauties a very nice lady crossed the Atlantic. The Atlantic!

I'm not sure but probably the problem is an incompatibility with "6DOF XY MOUSE by Pal", because the image seems to have a broader vision, which clears or overlaps with that of the model of the aircraft cockpit (to specify, in the 3D cockpit is fitted with parts of the plane is not a good cockpit but it is the best that I can do in the field)

GIO.
 
(Non ne sono sicuro ma probabilmente il problema è una incompatibilita con "6DOF XY MOUSE by Pal",perchè dall'immagine sembra avere una visione piu allargata , che cancella o sovrappone il modello dell'aereo a quello del cockpit,(per precisare , il cockpit è adattato con parti 3D dell'aereo non è un buon cockpit ma è il massimo che so fare nel campo) )

Hello Kant, thank you very much for the floatplane she is a beauty. 8)

Only able to test with AI at the moment and I have to report she will not lift off the water, remains at a constant 50 km/h and just continues along the water. :'(

I have the aircraft in three installs and there does not appear any problems there, ie no CTD or glitches I have noticed other than the no go AI take off. ;)

Anyone out there tried a manual take off, curious to know how easy/hard she is to get airborne?

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Great little plane!!!!!.Manual take-off works as long as you push the stick forward at 50k to get it up on the step than pull back and lift off is around 110k or so.

Thank you for that dona, I cannot use the stick at the moment and using the keypad would suck. ;)

In the real world you just do not climb into a combat aircraft, you train first, aircraft like this can be used in campaigns to replicate your progress from novice to ace. ;)

They are also good eye candy in missions as they can help to give a feeling for the world around you at a particular time and place.

And the most important reason of all is they are just fun to fly, who wants to shoot at things all the time.

Interesting point of view! Training, civil flights... I never thought that! Actually you make me recall there were civil flights at Pearl Harbour on Dec. 8, 1941, for instance. Thanks for your kind answer.

They do have that same similar appeal from that era  :D ;)

Maybe perhaps another floatplane master in the makings :D

Didn't know about the Vega that served in the RAAF Cool
