The Quality of the JF Pipers
This applies to all of them so I couldn't really pick a particular subforum to post this, but I just wanted to leave a little note about how I've spent a bunch of hours in the Warrior and the Arrow (including putting my first sim pit together for them), and I keep finding little things that amaze me. Sure, I might not be able to blow the engine clean apart like I can the DC-6, but the attention to the little things is fantastic.
I just recently started flying on VATSIM with some guidance from a Steam friend. One of the things I happened to notice was that I couldn't hear something on Com2 if Com1 was active; I was used to that from things like Pilot2ATC which only reads the one, but I thought maybe it would be different using something like VATSIM. I switched to Com2 once and noticed that I could now receive on Com1 while transmitting and receiving on Com2, but back to Com1 I could only receive Com1. Weird, but I thought maybe it was a bug or something with vPilot and I didn't give it much thought.
I had one of those random eureka thoughts that hit you as you're falling asleep later that night, and I frantically messaged a friend who had been flying them. I remembered that Com2 is usually not set to output to anything, and if you set it could you then listen to it at the same time as Com1? And he tried it, and you betcha. I did it myself today. Simply by turning Com2 to speaker or phone you can listen to both Com1 and Com2.
Such as simple thing but I feel like a kid at Christmas. I cannot overstate enough how much I love these things.
Thanks for the great feedback! We enjoy adding all these little touches to bring you the more realistic and immersive experience possible.
I have a small handful of upcoming add-ons for MSFS that I am really looking forward to, not the least of which is the 146, but I'm also pretty confident they're going to collect a lot of dust because the Arrow III with Air Hauler 2 has been 100% of my flight time in the last few months.
