If I could choose only one JF aircraft to be ported to MSFS (2020) the Hawk T1 would be it... hands down... no question... (the Vulcan would be 2nd on my list)! Please, please, please consider such
@Wiggi001 That's your opinion and no problem with that. It's been checked here again and we can't reproduce the issues using the latest build (from Nov 19), the FDE seems fine.
But if it doesn't work as you'd wish and that will mean you won't be using the aircraft then please contact the support team who will be happy to issue you with a refund. This Archer has been very well received since release and has become a favourite add-on for many users. However we'd not want anyone sat on an aircraft they can't use so please feel free to do as I suggest above and claim your refund.
Done to death beforehand on the old forum and over at Avsim. We had plenty of real-world Arrow pilots involved, both initially and then joining in for the initial SP. One (and only one) was adamant that there should be a strong nose-up pitching on flap extension, the rest were insistent on a fairly stable / nose down tendency. The POH doesn't help, mentioning pitching but not stating which way, but it does say that it can be easily held by hand rather than needing trimming out.
I seem to recall discussions on PPrune as well as among our testers where the same aircraft was accused of pitching either up or down, dependant on who you listened to. It's been a long time since I worked on these files, but I think that what was settled upon was a very slight upwards pitching on flap extension but that the drag created (and resultant slowing of the aircraft) would pull the nose back down.
It's a really difficult situation, there is no 'black and white' definitive answer to your question, only about ten pilots / owners who would each give their own fairly in-depth description and what we ended up with was what you have.
Sorry, I see the problem now -- I purchased the PA-28R Arrow III & Turbo Arrow III/IV Bundle, for which they are only showing:
COMPATIBILITY FSX/FSX:SE/P3D v1-v4
CURRENT VERSION 2.01
On the other hand, they are showing the PA-28R Turbo Arrow III/IV title as:
COMPATIBILITY FSX/FSX:SE/P3D v1-v5
CURRENT VERSION 2.03
So far their download file has not been updated for the bundle.
I have the same problem: two breaks different but more importantly excessive braking when I start pressing my pedals (saitek rudder pedals). This doesn't happen in any other addons
Can anyone tell me the process to start the aircraft up using the APU, I’ve shut the engines down once the sim is loaded, I’ve started the APU, closed the generator trip, and opened the bleed.
I have then followed the start proceed as in the manual but I can’t start any of the engines,
Can anyone take me through it or point to a part of the manual that explains it?

@Ray-Fry said in Creating new schedules:
In the compiler folder.
The log.txt the others are redundant and should have been removed by now part1 and part2 no longer used
I do see a lot of Unable to find available parking at XXXX
I do get those messages with almost every single schedule that I have created. I don't know how to bypass or fix them. Do you have any idea?
The log is updated every time you compile and the date modified will show the time and the date you last run the compiler.
Unavailable parking shows the airport needs more gates of the correct size.
And the unable to find aircraft type is due JF main database badly setup and it cannot find the aircraft for the flight plan, it`s there but wrong airline assigned to the plan, i have been correcting some it is in my 22.214.171.124 issues thread that i report back on.
The Traffic_Global_Airkines.bgl is the traffic compiled successfully the larger it gets the more traffic you have in the sim.
@Cropduster47 Hi, I did the FSX landing test as promised this morning just in case I'd missed something. Fuel weight 25,000lbs, AUTOLAND ( ILS ) engaged, Heathrow 110.30 ILS RW 27R, fair weather set for the sake of clarity, 210 Autothrottle approach airspeed and Centre of Gravity set just aft of centre to help the autopilot maintain trim. Concorde tracked in so I took this image at Decision Height. Concorde remains sensitive to lateral movement when tracking an ILS though, so it does need to be hand-flown to the ILS entry point as accurately as possible, as far out as possible, to ensure minimum hassle in the approach. Hope that this helps.
We've just received the paintkit from the developers so we're in the process of adding a download link in our support page: https://support.justflight.com/en/support/home
If you search for the FK131 in an hour or two (or perhaps tomorrow) it should be there available for downloading.
Hi Old John,
FSX Steam Edition with Windows 64
I have been flying the Fokker F27 since the end of August 2020 and have never had a problem with the ignitors not working individually.
For the Auto Pilot Trim switch I have never used as I like to watch the "Primary Displays" when making any changes so use buttons on my Joystick. Having said that I have had problems with the pitch, when descending at approximately 1,000 ft/min with the "Airspeed" hold on in the Autopilot, suddenly for no apparent reason the plane will go into a steep dive followed by a steep climb and carry on doing this until I switch off the Autopilot and regain control. I did contact Just Flights support team who tried to replicate it but couldn't so have put it down to my piloting.
Thanks for the recommendations. The first of the 2 is probably the best at least it got me flying the S340. But I still think Carenado's PDF files are not as good as the ones with Just Flight's aircraft. I also wonder why they can't put check lists on the kneeboard as this would make it flyable in VR.
I have got 3 tickets submitted to just flight over my canberra issue , but not had any replys to the sofar.
Item 2/. above has now been sorted , in all my other aircraft setting up throttles on the first page going through FSUIPC calibration then set them up on the throttle page works fine , but not the canberra , it turned out to be simple , on the front page of the FSUIPC you just set the throttles on the canberra to go through FSX , set the control panel below for throttle 1 and 2 for multi throttles like i have , pull your throttles to min and hit the button left of the readings twice , so a 1 appears , thats it , you dont need to go to the throttle page.
The canberra accoding to the manual page 9, should have a means to set up the canberra if you goto Start\ALL programs\Just Flight\Canberra PR9 , only file i have here is for the Mosquito , the Canberra PR9 is missing,
Also in the sim under Add-ons\Just Flight Canberra it only shows Ground Equipment , there is no Panel State section as mentioned in the manual page 16 .
I have found 2 .exe files in the F:FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\JF_Canberra\panel folder , they are Canberra_Configuration.exe and Canberra_Frequencies.exe , why are these here , and what are they controlling , NONE of my other aircraft have anything like this in the panel folders , so are they in the wrong place , as i followed the simple install proceedure , i have a ticket in for missing files , but not had a reply yet.
As anyone eles got these two exe files in the panel folder or missing the file in the start menu just flight canberra and missing save panel state options in the sim.
At this time i dont know if it is a corrupt download or not that is causing my issues.
If anyone could check their install folders to see if they are different from mine , and let me know .
Have you got the navigraph main data update from navigraph , if so then you flight plan has to be entered manually via the CDU , as per the manual , which can be found in FSX under Carenado its in the first PDF page 5 is the start , it is not a very friendly CDU and is a bit quirky , its a while since i last flew this aircraft , the systems dont work fully as they should , and it does take a bit of getting used to , and watch you CG very carfully as its twitchy in pitch .
regards alan cottrill.
I've got this running in P3Dv4.5
The parkingbrake leaver is to the right when brakes are on (I don't know if this is correct or not).
Undercarriage lever is down when undercarriage down
Engine start buttons don't seem to stick
A white mark would be useful, tool tips does say which is selected (1,2 or off), but I imagine some don't like that being on for immersion reasons.
Doesn't seem to be a hole in the wing on the p3d model
I remember having this problem before. I think it was something to do with locking the two fuel cocks (with the middle mouse click) after turning to number 2 tanks. I was using a mouse with a fancy middle button and I could never start the engines (this was back when I was using FSX:SE with the Lancaster). I borrowed a really cheap standard mouse and the middle click on that would activate the cocks. It's hard to know if that will be the problem for you as there doesn't seem to be any sound or visual indicator that the cocks are locked, which would be helpful.
I've just tried 3 different mice in p3dv4 (including the one I used to have problems with) and they all seem to work (pressing manual start and then trying to start up), but can't say whether that is due to p3d or something else as I have a different system entirely now.
I remember a post on the old forum having similar issues with the middle click of the cocks [http://forum.justflight.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=32497&title=ah-lancaster-cold-start-12-port-wont-start](link url)
If your props are turning, but the engines aren't catching it might be that.
7-10 - I haven't tried to use the autopilot or fuel system or guns.
Hope that's of some help.
