"Locked up" is the correct phrase.

On a flight from Belfast City to Oldbury on Severn, in the supercharged version, it's locked FS9 up 4 times! I thought it might be because I'd made a couple of minor panel mods. I eventually shut down ASv6 and it was OK after that. Farmstrip landing was no problem. The retractable version is controllable down to 60kias, which was slow enough for a 400 metre strip, even stopping a bit short of the end.

It's too much. I've just spotted that, with the canopy open, the ignition keys are swinging in the wind, too. That's what I call attention to detail!

Hi Alex,
Got it and installed; though I think I may have the same problem as you.

On my non flying PC I was involved in modifying the panel, for displaced monitor panel use, when FS9 crashed. It did this several times, after which I gave up. I turned to flying the 200GT, as is, from EGAC to Ronaldsway, on my FSim PC. Part way down the track and an FS9 lockup, with TaskMaster showing it not to be responding.

It's a bit close to your experience last night to be beyond coincidence.

Having said that, it's a very nice aircraft indeed! Not just the excellent eye candy, like the warning tapes on the locks and covers, fluttering in the wind, plus the head turning pilot. It's one of the few light a/c I've used where the descent can be controlled just on the throttle, once speed has been stabilised with the trim. At a blustery Ronaldsway it was easy to carry out a manual ILS to 26, despite its bumping about realistically..

I may copy over the engine intruments, to the area where the gyro / suction gauge currently sits. From the look of the gauges it should be OK in FSX also.

Thanks for the lead.

Hi Gerry,

This is the one:


A right little cracker - feels like a proper GA aircraft, very easy to fly by the book. Absolutely perfect for VFR events like last night. A true tourer (the 21GT can cruise at FL250 and 190kts)

'tis payware but very much worth the money, certainly on par with Carenado's stuff and alot cheaper.

All the best,
