Well, in every plane, if there's a system, you can turn it off and on. E.g. you can switch hydraulics off, but you wouldn't do that.
But of course you need the option to do so if a system malfunction occurs.

Re: Just An Odd INS Question

....and probably the good old days of charts and course plotting. How about NDB, VOR, DME, TACAN navigation? When I started flying for the airlines IRL we didn't have anything else and I didn't miss anything. No need for this fancy FMC etc. stuff. When these things were new in our planes it was not...

Re: What are causing these black squares

How about using the repair function for FSX instead of manually copying files back in.
Chances are that you are missing other important items as well.

Re: What are causing these black squares

It didn't appear after installing a plane, but when you uninstalled a plane.
Your FX_1.bmp from the effects/texture folder is missing.
Unfortunately there are a few add-ons which 'uninstall' this file together with the add-on :(

Re: Atmospheric turbulence sensitivity

The Milviz F-4 isn't too sensitive to turbulence, but to weather add-ons. Unfortunately there are quite a few payware planes that don't work correctly with weather add ons.

Re: Pilot's eyepoint

Most F-4 pilots raise the seat for landing so that they can just see a tiny bit of the radome.
I have permanently moved the POV a bit up and forward for that reason (as I'm not doing any shooting, dropping bombs etc. at all)

Re: Combat ceiling

It would be great if you can do your tests without any external loads, than it will be easy to see if the problem is a wrong thrust/drag model or only the external loads drag.

Re: Combat ceiling

@WilliamG Unable, since I can't tune this part of the FDE anymore I haven't installed the F-4. I was able to reach 27,000 without an issue. Beyond that I had to monitor my AOA and continue to use burners. I eventually reached 35,000 and set the a/p, but it was difficult to get out of MIL without inc...

Haven't tried the F-4 with the new custom thrust model but this has never been a problem when I was fully responsible for the FDE.

There's nothing specific to do as the mixture is in AUTO and MCP is available to well over 30000ft. What's your IAS, RPM and MP? Are you in icing conditions?
