Just purchased the A2A C172 Trainer after Matthew Porter who notified me that the aircraft is now available from its store. After flying it for about an hour, the impression that this C172 gives me is sharp and responsive. Graphics is stunning. Also simmers can access many information via pressing the [Shft] + number keys.
Unfortunately, the aircraft doesn’t recognize some of the FSX functions via the buttons on Saitek panels or FIPs or by pressing the keyboard.
For example, the BAT and Panel Light buttons have to be toggled up and down a couple of times in order to reflect the status changed. The ALT button is not working.
When using with the SPAD driver, the BAT button is now working okay. But the Panel Light, ALT and even the Flaps are not working at all.
In addition, the readings on the RPM, Fuel Flow, EGT and Oil Temperature gauges I made for FIPs are all different from what are shown in the cockpit. These gauges are functioning correctly on the default as well as Carenado and other aircrafts (no matter if they are the C172).
When above issues are solved, this aircraft is no doubt to be my default favorite.
Surely will continue to “tune” it right. If you encounter the same problems, and especially how to solve them, let me know.
