There is a video.  Just YT search Aeroplane Heaven Lancaster.  There is the promotional upload and one posted by a contributor just in the past week.

It is a very nice plane to fly almost hands free if trimmed properly but the auto-controls - not auto-pilot - do seem to be a bit erratic.

I have accrued nearly 40 hours with most "sorties" lasting 4-5 hours flying.  Last night evaded the flak and dodged the searchlights on the Khammhuber line and bombed the Ford Works in Cologne.

Have fun and watch the fuel if fully bombed up.

Hi Kingsman.
As stated the aircraft is nice to fly , but there are a few faults , that i have put a ticket in for.
Faults i have found are :-
1/. On joinFS at random times when on autopilot the directional gyro can be out by anything , the max i have had sofar is 60degrees , the zero should always be in line with the little arrow when flying in chosen direction , this makes flying awkward when first engauging the autopilot , if not on joinFS then it appears to work as it should.
2/. i have found a few aircraft.cfg errors , ticket submitted for these.
3/. fuel tanks carry more fuel than they should do , this is going by info found on the web and in the supplied pilots notes.
4/. because they use ctr1 and ctr2 tanks instead of tip tanks , the fuel is used in the wrong sequence and upsets the aircraft trim , ticket submited.
5/. i have changed the VC views to suit me and my trackIR5 , but the error for the default views in my opinion is the zoom setting , which makes the aircraft seem bigger than it should be , in reality it was cramped.
any new aircraft releases have minor faults , but even with the faults i have found sofar in the Lanc , this aircraft in my opinion is the best that Airplane Heaven have produced todate.

Love the Lanc.

 But when I select the lights on using the L key or the light switch in the a/c.  I get lots of black smoke and flames coming off the end of the starboard wing tip. It does look good but the only way I can stop it is to  turn off the lights
I have tried re- installing but this problem is still there.
Any ideas on how to fix it.Unhappy Please.
Thanks

Hi Mike.
I use FSXA on a win 7 64 system , and i dont have this issue , what sim are you useing , and is it the AH lanc that was recently released , or the older lanc that you are refering to.
Also does the smoke and flames disappear if you hit the I key , or operate the individual light switches in the VC.
regards alan.

Hi Alan
Sorry i am late in replying to you as i have been away from home.
I am using FSX disks on win 10, yes it is the AH lanc

Smoke and flames do not disappear or show up  if i hit the I key.
If i turn the  Light switches to On in VC  the smoke and flames appear then when i  turn off the lights the smoke/flames go away

Same as pressing the L key.

Thanks for your reply Alan.

regards Mike
