Alan,
Thanks for the info about the prop. I've just applied this fix into my IDG-PA28 and it is much more realistic!

Do you know if there is documentation about this? I do not recall reading anything like this when I made this prop.

Kind Regards,
Josh

This bug report has more details, and gives links to the resulting discussions https://sourceforge.net/p/jsbsim/bugs/110/

The iat.png error can be cured by editing the file dome-light.ac and changing both lines containing
texture "..\temp\iat.png"
to
texture "iat.png"


This is normal text file. Alternatively you can copy iat.png from the temp directory to the one which containes dome-light.ac.

In-air reset - the bug is that this sometimes hangs forever.

Another in-air reset bug was already reported , with a sugested cure, in my post https://forum.flightgear.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=28303&p=348717&hilit=brake#p348717.

The iat.png error can be cured by editing the file dome-light.ac

Actually I don't think dome-light.ac should be using it at all. That is why I said an erroneous texture or material assignment. I think it may be a duplicate material setting that is using that .png. Should probably be removed altogether.

Alan, I think the only two issue you reported left to resolve is the joystick throttle and
In-air reset - the bug is that this sometimes hangs forever

I have as of yet not been able to reproduce these errors.
Can you give me any more specific information as to what I should be seeing and when I should be seeing it?

I read the link talking about the brake being set to "on" when an "In air reset" is executed. I haven't actually looked at that yet but will. I need to determin what exactly an in air reset is and what it is doing in order to know how to handle the brake.
