GerryI understand, that FSX has been upgraded to include updraughts, to increase the use of the sailplane.
Perhaps you went through one of these areas. Frank F----- Original Message ----- From: "Gerry Winskill" <gwinsk@xxxxxxx>

The APM20 that I use, in modified form, does 130 kias, at my usual cruise settings. In FSX, on a couple of occasions, it's considerably exceeded this, on the same settings. At the time it's bee held at 3000', by the Auto Pilot. The increased speeds have been accompanied by a definite nose down attitude; confirmed by looking via Spot Plane view.Could it be that FSX has had significant upcurrents in the areas I was passing through?Gerry Winskill -- No virus found in this incoming message.
