  • This is a fantastic service pack! Really enjoying it. Some of the things that broke the immersion in the original have been sorted and many really nice updates have been included. Go tie downs and chocks! Thanks to all who worked on this to bring such quality to FS2 in a 3rd party aircraft and for their continued support of the Aerofly platform. :thumbup:

  • Loads of great new features. Some questions though. Has anyone worked these out?


    Emergency landing gear extension - I lifted the flap and turned the knob. Finally realised it was cutting the fuel supply. Surely not right?


    Also should manifold pressure stay showing 30 with everything switched off?


    Finally where do I look to see what happens when I click battery recharge?

  • Great update, but the parking brake doesn’t work at my place, am I the only one?

    The same for me.


    I also have the problem that the full indicators show 'no fuel' when turn on the battery switch. The full indicators show 'full fuel' as son as the engine has started.


    Their is also a problem with the sound of flaps if flaps are assigned to a joystick axis. You hear the sound only when the flaps are extended from Up to 10°.


    I have already reported this to Just Flight.

  • You all know that the book on the copilots seat can control the fuel and battery? (As well as checks and tiedowns)

  • I'm probably being a bit silly here, but where is the service pack? I'm not seeing it on my account on Just Flight..

    JF does not make it easy to understand. You simply redownload your purchase and if they have added an update that is what you will receive. Just check the size of the exe file before and after to see that the file has been changed.

    It's a completely new installer, not a patch, not a service pack that you can install on top of the existing version in your computer. Previous posts are confusing. You should download the new installer in case you bought the Duchess before last week, uninstall your existing Duchess and re-install everything using the new version already downloaded. That's all!.

  • Thank you so much. :thumbup:


    Is it possible to get Just Flight's airplanes compatible with Logitech / Saitek Pro flight radio panel (such as AFS2's default airplanes) :?:

    The radio panel is working fine for me, however they do seem to be switched around, e.g. if I change the frequency for Nav 2 on the Saitek panel, it updates Nav 1 in the sim but, apart from that, works a treat. Also mostly working with the multi- and switch panels.
