Somewhere off the Azores:
Tried out the three bag configuration on the super today, and they were not working for me.
(harpoons not included)
Part of it was not being used to the extra drag. Part of it was the weather. But I was consistently fighting powercurve. I don’t know if it is how VRS does their flight model and F404s, if it’s how the hornet is, or if it’s how P3D does it’s weather, but no matter what I did I could not maintain proper approach speed.
If I let off the throttle a small bit, I would be down around 120 knots before you could perceive it. If I moved the throttle foward just a hair, I was suddenly rocketing past 150. This forces you to constantly chase your power setting, which is a painful proposition with the engine response time.
Anyhow here’s a bunch of bad approach pictures.
Nope and nope.
Screw this, I’m going to go play xbox.
