    New ADX Site Feedback

    I would love to, but don't really have the time to commit to it at the moment. Cheers,

    New ADX Site Feedback

    I am a fan of the site setup in general, but it does seem to be a bit of a ghost town. Maybe users of the old site just can't accept the new site? It is not just lacking users, it seems to be lacking in the back end. For the first time ever across both sites I submitted some news the other day which I thought was quite relevant (release of FSX3D Gap Tallard which has been in development for the past year) and this was totally ignored. There was no news at all for about 3 days. If that is going to be the case I won't bother reporting anything again.

    D'Stream Requests

    I would like to see a live stream of a few of, or maybe a mega stream of all of, Paulo Ricardo's excellent sceneries. Also the new one by Jetstream Designs: Nantes Atlantique.

    Welcome Back D'Andre

    Welcome back D'Andre. I am stoked to hear you are back to do some live streams. The first live stream (replay on you tube) I watched was the ORBX Bilbao one and I really got in to it. I had already bought the airport, but finally stumbled across your you tube vids and decided to watch. I think that may have been one of your last too. Since then, I have gone back and watched almost all the live streams that were uploaded to you tube. They are very entertaining. I often like to re-read articles in PC Pilot about airports or aircraft I already have, as well as for stuff I don't have, as it can give some insights or info I wasn't aware of. Watching your streams is the same, and I do enjoy your off the cuff story telling. I wasn't really aware of ADX before that, and I started reading the news on ADX quite often, and continued to do so after you left. I am glad to see things have come full circle again and ADX has a fresh start thanks to all the guys you left the reigns to and the folks behind the scenes. Cheers, Scott

    A320 Flaps 2 landing

    Thank you both for your answers. I have since done some more research and it is entirely possible, and probable that I was looking at a Flap 3 setting. They did not look like they were down and out very far at all, but even testing with the Aerosoft model, the Flap 3 setting does look like a really shallow angle, even though it is supposed to be at 20 degrees, compared to 35 or 40 degrees for full flaps. Another pointer is that the MCDU in the Aerosoft model only shows 2 options for landing flaps; Conf. 3 or Full. I am disappointed I decided not to take pics or video on this flight, the first time for ages, as I am just going by memory as to what the flaps looked like, but they definitely were not full flaps, and they just looked like they were at a really shallow angle. Cheers, Scott

    A320 Flaps 2 landing

    Hi, I was recently on a flight in Australia, from Adelaide to Melbourne. It was a very hot day , and pretty turbulent during descent. Nothing really rough, just a bit bumpy. It was a very hot day, around 42 degrees Celsius in Adelaide and Melbourne. We flew a downwind leg past YMML, then base and final, and the whole time I was watching to see the flaps go down, but they never went past (I assume) flaps 2 setting, possibly even 1+F, but I would assume 2. Would this be because a higher landing speed was required due to the heat, or is there some other reason a flaps 2 setting would have been used? I have flown with the same airline, and others and this was the first such landing I have seen. It is usually a full flaps landing. Here is a youtube vid I found which pretty much replicates what I saw, from a similar angle, and in what looks like similar weather. Cheers,
