A lot of people probably won’t understand this request, because it is a fairly new addition to the sim and looks beautiful. But there are some very much needed fixes for my baby.
First off, the planes exteriors look beautiful!! No complaints there.
But first request: please update the cockpit of the H model and AC130. They are not J model and look nothing like them, literally has a third chair in the middle for the flight engineer.
Second, possibly the most annoying: the power/throttle, very inacurate. First you must understand, this is a constant speed engine, meaning the prop and engine are always spinning at 100%RPM (unless in low speed ground idle). So we gain power by changing blade angle. We almost always taxi in low speed ground idle, blade angle at or right above 0°. Most times we let of the brakes, and the aircraft moves without having to move the throttles. In the sim you have to push power above 35%. That should not be. When we do push Power up, it should be more responsive and powerful than what is shown in the sim.
Second max reverse is more powerful and is not simply the same as push back. I should have no issue landing on a 1000’ runway and stopping with only max reverse. It should stop me within a few seconds.
The next issue the maneuverability: yes it is a cargo plane, but it does not handle like one. We fly tactical navigation missions through the mountains with fighters chasing us. It doesn’t take me ten seconds to roll to the left. This needs to be way more sensitive than what it is in the sim. The same with the yaw and pitch. If you’ve ever flown on one, you’d be very surprised to see us pull 3Gs easily.
4 minor fixes: the ramp should not fully open in the air, you should be able to steer while reversing, the landing lights need to retract and extend, and the white beacon is not on the wings, but on the bottom and top of the fuselage when we change it from red to white for day and night.
If I need to clarify anything or if anyone needs help further understanding this, please let me know. Hope this gets to the devs!!
I leave you with a picture of the flight station.
