Same here. I did a quick flight and the aircraft "feels" heavy to maneuver as I may imagine, great behaviour, nice sounds and graphics and great fps. Enjoying it!

Glad you are enjoying the new version Thumbs Up

You should also be able to see a version number if you open the aircraft.cfg file (at the very top).

Thanks

Many problems have been solved with  SP2. I think that there is a small problem will low RPM ( i fly the modern panel plane ), even with full prop levers especially during climb and descent and need more throttle than normal. During cruise you can keep the right settings. Plane is flyable and very close to be perfect.

The patched version flies well for the most part, however, given the C-46 was pretty infamous for having an undersized rudder (not surprising actually; compare its rudder size ratio to the static fin size to that ratio on the DC-3), which made it difficult in a crosswind amongst other things, I decided to tweak the aircraft config file to make the rudder one third as effective as it is in the patch by default. Actually I did the same thing on the Aeroplane Heaven/Just Flight B17F too, since that is an another aircraft fairly notorious for having rubbish rudder authority (I lessened the effectiveness of the 17's ailerons too, since they were cack on the Fortress as well). 

I'd recommend doing that rudder tweak to other users; you'll find it makes the C-46 handle a bit more like one would expect the real thing to. Pretty easy to do, just open up the aircraft config file and change the rudder value from 1.00, down to 0.30.

Sorry to hi-jack this topic. I can't find on the manual if there's a way to hide the control column. Any help please?

I got my copy from PC Aviator Aus and the download file was named: Install_C46_TP.zip. At the top of the aircraft.cfg file it says: //SP @ 260917 which doesn't seem to be a version number.

I know I said don't bother, but now that I see SP2/V104…if the offer is still open, I'd like to take you up on it.  The only place this C-46 model will be flying is off my hard-drive…in fact, it just did.

Ver 102 may have had its issues, but the old military versions were at least an attempt to model a WWII era aircraft  I will concede that the VOR system was not invented until the 1950's so a VOR didn't belong in a 1940's cockpit…but some of the mil models were post WWII…and at least it looked like it belonged to that era.

Fact:  The LED was not invented until the 1960s, or about 20 yeas after the C-46 was introduced.  The SP2/Ver 104 "radio fix" for the mil C-46–WWII and right after–has LED radio displays that look like they are from the late 1970s.  I'm not a "rivet counter" when it comes to FSX aircraft.  I understand that the word "simulation" is there for a reason, but this is beyond the pale. Thumbs Down

 It's not a Just Flight issue since the  JF DC-3, DC-8 10-40 series, DH-104 Devon/Dove and HS 748 all have better "period" radios…as did the this C-46 until ver 103.   

 I guarantee the brave aviators taking their C-46's over "the Hump" in WWII were not looking at LEDs…just say'n.

Much as I am enjoying the C-46 since SP2 and the new FDE, I have to agree with Hangar200 - the radios in the WW2 cockpit are a bit of a faux pas, aren't they ? Is there any chance of Aeroplane Heaven addressing this ?

Should be sent to them today then it'll be down to them getting it added. But we have done our bit.

Hope this helps.
