i also want to point some things:

first, some of the instruments on the cabin are displaced from the panel:

also, the bus stack is not in the same position of the 707, as it is placed now:

good reports lomar.
May I also ask you to leave them as issues in the IAHM-COLs repository in github?


Is a safety mechanism for this important issues to be tracked, as opposed to diluted in tenths of forum pages.
If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Hi Lomar,

I have to find a 3D talented person to build more instruments. And yes, the instruments are currently not exactly correct in the x-axis and they or at least some of them are a bit oversized. Sorry, that happens if your only person doing that stuff is blind as a mole.
So, since you have obviously better eyes, do you want to give it a try? I can telly you what and where in Mumble if you want?

J.

I am known to land on taxiways because they were due to their brighter color visible to me while the darker runway was kind of gone. And some people here guided me with instructions like "left" ... "right ... more right" through night taxiing at KMCI once.
Are you on Mumble? It's easier to talk you through one or two instruments than just hitting you with some cryptic work instructions.

I just had the 727 with Soitanen's changes out for a flight from Phoenix to Dallas. Flies like a charm. The only thing that was a little bit a problem is, that she wasn't able to stay stable at the glideslope at low speed (140-160 knots, I tried over the range). She ran into a lift/balance problem. I had to put her on manual, and correct with intermediate throttle against the lift loss. Of course, it didn't help that the wind changed twice while I was on approach. I started out with a decent headwind of 7 knots and at touchdown time, I had about 15 degree tailwind component and the rest cross from the right at 11 knots. So, maybe it was just the weather, but we need to keep an eye on that.

Hey All

The Sound package of the B723 has been updated by FL2070

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=27384

I had pushed it to the development repo, and these are waiting for testers :)

About FDM: it's only start of work, I have changed only geometry and 3 coefficients (nice dutch roll we have now). It's big work in future, but I will try to make the best possible FDM.
Boeing 737-300. Reworked cockpit, FDM, autopilot and much more. WIP.
Boeing 737-800. WIP. Canvas PFD and ND.
Antonov An-24B. Made from scratch. Very good FDM. 3D model by Adrian. WIP.
Project Russia (some cities, based on OSM with custom objects).

Hi everyone. The 727 is a real beauty. I may be able to find some to help with the 3D panel, but otherwise, this plane rocks! I also really love the analog cockpit. I hope some day it will be fully working like the 777 or 757 FlightGear has. If I can help in any way, let me know.

Hey!
If you'd like to help go to [url]thejabberwocky.net[/url] -- that is the main place to develop the 727 now.
Thanks!

Is anyone able to work on the JSB FDM for this plane? It's not very good right now, and it really should be improved. When it is, then I plan to put more work into the cockpit, systems, etc.
