I sent you and Bud the revised FD. I made a takeoff from a runway and landed on water with the new contact positions. You may need to land gently on a runway but it should be okay. I filled six seats behind the crew plus plenty of baggage. At this full load you need to be patient on a water takeoff. I lifted off at 85 KIAS and climbed at 90 KIAS. Those will be 98 and 104 for you using the original panel.
At 10,000 ft it will cruise at 190 mph true at 75% power (165 KTAS).
Revisions to the FD included a power boost (it was 35% of 700 total hp), a drag boost, turned on the superchargers, set the CG, shifted all contact points after setting the CG at about 20% with a full load. I also set the MOI's with a quick guess.
Anyone wanting the revised aircraft.cfg should send me an email using the icon under my photo for the proper knology email address. I'll send the new file by return mail.

Sorry, no. I could not do the FD files with the original panel and I forgot to set the panel selector back to the original. In the aircraft.cfg file just erase the TG from the panel= line. You'll get the original panel or whatever other panel you have loaded. I need my CG position, power gauge, angle of attack and other things when I test FD files. It does not mean you can't enjoy the simpler original panel files.
I never flew with the original panel so I am not sure what you see in the VC. But normally you use the arrow keys to move your view around. Tap the space bar to get back to the original straight-ahead view.
Without fixing the panel= line, you won't see the VC either.
There are some a/c programs where using keys like, eg, CNTRL + ALT then backspace moves your head to the right or left for example. Then, I use a hat switch (button?) to rotate. This one does that, but the combination of keys I tried were the wrong ones. lr

Bluegrass Bellanca Air Cruiser for FS2004 ,haveing a hard time slowing down for landings , so went to aircraft Cfg. file and made some changes. induced drag on airframe increased to 1.000 ; paracitic drag increased to .950 this dropped cruise speed to 160Knt. but I feel it is closer to a plane it's era. Then increased flap drag to 1.500 and flap lift to .900 . Next prop Moi. decreased from 48 to 30. These changes, though costing me some cruise speed , I can at least slow down to 80Knts..
