Hello Leif,

Your Sea Hornet is really a beautiful piece of work. The advantage of third-party add-ons in the FS series is for me that rarer planes also get the chance to be modelled. As I wrote earlier this download link worked perfectly for me for the two-seat Sea Hornet, but I now have the same downloading problem with the F Mk. 20. After downloading I get the message that the zip contains no archive. I cannot remember that I ever had this problem with other sites like Sim-Outhouse or Simviation. You said it might be my downloading speed. Is there any solution?

Many thanks,

Stickshaker

I had not expected it and it didn’t work with the nightfighter version, but simply downloading again did the trick! I was lucky: it took me only two download attempts, but it is worth to keep trying for some time if you are less fortunate than I was. The plane is certainly worth it: splendid cockpit, beautiful exterior and a joy to fly. The view over the nose is so exceptional that I will start carrier landings as soon as I have practiced some more runway landings.

Re: Sea Hornet 5 years 1 week ago #29728

Hi,

Thank you everybody for your welcome :)

Well done ! The DH-103 is a magnificent airplane... The flying shape seems pretty good. I feel it very pleasant and easy to fly. The virtual cockpit looks like of the best paywares airplanes addons.

I like so much DeHavilland airplanes with a preference for the romantic Tiger Moth, Dragonfly, Dove...

Congratulations and thanks to Rob Richardson for his good work ! Just a question : where is the mixture handle ? I didn't find it near the throttles and propeller RPM adjustment handle ??? However, Ctrl+F2 or F3 adjusts the mixture

Chris. Good day from France.

Re: Sea Hornet 5 years 1 week ago #29729

Hello Chris,
The Hornet was supercharged and as such did not have mixture control levers, it was all automatic as I understand.

Ca va Chris.

The Hornet's Merlins were fitted with injection carbs and had both
automatic mixture and supercharger controlling.

They were a developement of the 60/70 series two speed two stage
Merlin originally fitted to the Spitfire VIII/IX/X/XI.

So all you have to do is work the throttles,boost pumps and prop revs.

Nice and easy ;)

Hi Everybody,

Thank you for your answer Rob. Now, I understand the reason for there's not a mixture handle in DH-103 !

Have a good day !
