    Dear IPACS team,


    2 years down the road and this issue is unfortunately still present in latest build...

    All rotary switches always turn clockwise when using 2 finger scroll movement on touchpad (regardless of moving fingers upwards or downwards).


    A fix for us touchpad users would be very much appreciated!

    Hi Jan,


    Could you also look at the main gear when improving the Hornet?

    When comparing with RL pictures:

    - main gear track seems too narrow

    - main gear tires visually seem to be on the small size.

    Hello,


    I noticed when using the touchpad on my laptop that I am unable to move or rotate switches in both directions as it keeps going in a single direction regardless of scroll action on touchpad.

    (radio freq, transponder code, VOR radial, etc)


    Scrolling up or down with two fingers on the touchpad does not change the direction of rotation requiring to move through the whole range when overshooting a desired setting or value.

    *BUMP*


    Issue still exists today.

    Easy to reproduce with the C172 radio stack.


    A fix would be very much appreciated.

    Hi guys,


    I found the volume of the sounds in AFS1 to be more realistic than the very low volume sounds I am getting in AFS2. For the internal view I could think it is simulating an active noise reduction headset but the volume is also very low in external view.


    I have to turn my speakers to max volume to get some immersion...

    Do you experience the same or is it something on my end?

    Why this difference compared to the volume in FS1 or RC7?


    Is there a setting I missed somewhere??


    Regards,

    Sylvain

    Fair enough!


    Thanks for the detailed explanation :)
    If I were you I would consider mentioning some of these details on the Steam store page as like you said - we don't necessarily see the amount of work that goes into such a conversion.


    By the way- Can we hope to see the Discus and the Robin carried over to FS2 in the future??
    The Robin was my favourite touring aircraft in FS1!


    Cheers,

    Hello Ipacs,


    Nice to see you released the excellent Switzerland DLC for FS2!


    I must admit that I was a bit disappointed to see that owners of FS1, although being early supporters of your platform, also have to repay for this scenery that is almost identical to the original release?


    Or is there something I'm missing/overseeing??


    Thanks,
    Sylvain

    Donka,


    Do you mean rolling noises when taxiing or one of those horrible tire screech noises at touchdown?


    The latter is not really realistic in my opinion...

    Hi, same for me Solon. Could someone please tell me the actual size of the aerofly 2 app, as in what does it say in settings > general > usage? This is just because the App Store never gives the right size of an app; it says aerofly 1 is 1.4gb when on settings it is 2.1gb.
    Thanks! Tristan


    Actual size of Aerofly 2 in 'Usage' submenu under settings reported as 1,6Gb on iPad Air 1.


    Cheers,
    Sylvain


    Edit: just see this was answered already :o

    Hello guys,


    While cleaning up my hard drive I stumbled across the aerofly RC setup files.
    I have:
    - a Download manager: aeroflyRC7-pro-DownloadManager.exe
    - the setup files folder: aeroflyRC7pro_Installer (containing 4 files for approx 5,79Gb)


    Do I need to backup the setup files folder for future install or is it sufficient to backup the download manager only??


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi guys,


    Joachim knows exactly what I'm referring too.
    The behavior of the quads like the DJI phantom in normal mode is not completely the same but it's coming close.
    The mechanical flybar also partially counters the inputs you are making.


    Any plans from IPACS to add the Blade 200SRX helicopter with SAFE technology when it's released next month?


    Regards,
    Sylvain

    Hello Jan,


    A 45 degree flybar helicopter will be self-stabilizing. If you let go the controls it will automatically return to a hover (giving it enough time and space) without pilot input. This stability off course severely restricts the max roll and pitch angle. It also excludes any aerobatic capability but makes it a good initial and docile trainer...
    Do you think this can be simulated by modifying the tmd file?


    Regards,
    Sylvain

    Hello,


    Is it possible to simulate the self-levelling effect of a 45degrees flybar like found on many fixed pitch RC helicopters by editing specific parameters in the 'edit aircraft' menu?


    I'd like to try to simulate the behaviour of my Nine Eagles Solo Pro 228 in aerofly RC.
    Thanks for any pointers or tips!


    Regards,
    Sylvain

    Hello guys,


    I recently bought a flybarred fixed pitch RC heli and to further improve my skills before stepping up to a collective pitch model I decided I had to buy a new RC sim. Being already an aerofly FS customer my choice was quickly made and I bought ... aerofly RC 7 and the Easy Commander USB! :D Great combo IMO!


    I notice I have a lot more difficulty to control a smaller heli like the Blade 300x or Blade 450 (extremely twitchy) compared to a bigger ones like the MD500 or the Airwolf for example.


    Looking at some of the settings I'm wondering if the parameters defined for the Blade heli's are realistic.
    Take a look at the servos:
    Servo speed is 150 by default. That seems way too quick to me!
    The servos used in those heli's are these ones: http://www.horizonhobby.com/pr…b-micro-servo-EFLRDS76#t1


    Shouldn't the correct servo speed rather be 11?


    I would also like to know what parameter in aerofly RC defines the max servo travel (should be 60° in this case)?


    Regards,
    Sylvain
