I have a problem and I'm not to sure there is a simple solution.

We "spin" animate the propeller tied to rpm. It may stop anywhere at any angle when shut off.

Now when it stops if I want to place it at a predetermined angle. I can use a rotate animation but I have no reference as to how much to rotate it as I have no reference as to where it currently is.
Anyone know of a solution?

If I ever see a tornado drop from one of theses clouds, we're going to have to register FG with the National Weather Service.

Simply stunning!

I know, every part of those clouds impress me. The layering of the different layers is equally impressive. Plus these are shots of a random start up of advanced weather METAR mode. We've been getting a lot of weather and some really impressive RL cloud formation as of late and it is absolutely duplicated in the simulator.

That looks really good, wlbragg - particularly coupled with the awesome scenery and weather!

The Cesna 172 does not follow the radials correctly has drifts

Hi miguel, I'm happy to look into it but I need to know specifics of how to reproduce what it is you think is wrong. Could you expand on your issue?

Is this a "Nav" autopilot issue?
What exactly are your seeing and when?
What weather model are you using?
How do we recreate what your seeing?

I'm sorry, I still don't understand your issue, there are a few thing that picture could represent such as wind or bracketing, etc.
I need to know why you think there is an actual problem. Or maybe I am not understanding how flying a radial works.

I tested it at random to a vor and was able to hit it with no issues.

There the screen.
do not fly straight, makes curves
Sorry my English

I'm saying the problem.
Green Line: VOR
Blue Line; The plane.
The plane has to go straight along the Green Line

Correct, but that can be caused by your method of flying, wind, bracketing, and other things, right? How do you know where the drift is being introduced from?

It is not the wind.
with autopilot, with nav.
This only happens with Cesna172.
The same
PA28 all perfect flight

OK, thank you for the report, I'll see if I can reproduce this and track it down. Anyone else familiar with the vor technology that wants to lend a helping hand to verify this is an issue and how to reproduce is more than welcome here.
