    I have uninstalled all FSX and reinstalled only FSX, TacPack with F/A-18 and J35J. I have no other add-ons. This is to test TacPack on J35J without any extra disturbances.

    And my suspicions were correct – now I can use the drop tanks for J35J without problems.

    Some moments ago I did load the 35, and the engine was running. I cut out both fuel pumps and let the engine run down. Then I took a screen dump, see below. The TANK PUMP was lit.

    Hi!

    I did check it on my PC. The engine is normally running when I load the Draken. I did cut the engine and the “Tank Punp”-warning did light up.

    Thank you Thomas, I did not know of this function. Then it is possible to run on one computer and connect it to two displays and have the same functions as I have now.

    But since my wife want to have her PC now and then, I will stay with the current configuration.

    No, I had not heard of it. But after looking it up in Wikipedia I understand that it is a method to make surfaces to look used and worn. But I do not want to have my airplane look worn, I want is nice and clean and unused.

    Hello Conny!

    I agree with you, I am also prepared to pay for this wonderful project. I have had so many stimulating flight hours with the J35J.

    Landings: Conny, you have a runway length of 2495m at F1. My “home base” is F10, and the main runway there is only 1941m. I can come down without the brake chute if I am careful with the landing speed, but if I am careless I have to use the chute.

    I did a test of the military navigation systems, because I had seen some errors.

    I started from F10 rw 32 and climbed straight out to 10 000 m. I put the aircraft on autopilot and set it flying a circle. Then I set the waypoint to 9009 for F9. The course and the vertical crossbar agreed with the displayed course on the FLI 35 Indicator unit. OK compared to Plan-G.

    Then I set A/B to BIA for F9 and choosed NAV400. Now the vertical crossbar changed to 180 degrees, directly south! The same for NAV40.

    I tested with F12 and F17, and got the same result. Waypoint navigation gave the correct course, but A/B gave directly south. Is this the error the same you said something about at Dec 27 16:31?

    I have tried to use the civilian VOR_DME system by flying to Kastrup using the beacon KAS 112.5. It showed the same behaviour as the Anita system. Course indicator OK, NAV400 zero and NAV40 a small distance. The tooltip OK.

    I have made another Anita-navigation test, flying from F10 Ängelholm to F9 Säve. The distance according to Plan-G is 95.1 nm = 176.12 km. The Anita was set to BI. The course indicator appeared over Torekov at flight level 1000 m. The following readings I did get during the flight:

    Position Level (m) NAV400 NAV40 Tooltip
    Torekov 1000 0 17 171.65
    H. Väderö 2000 0 15 148.02
    Halmstad 3000 0 14 135,22
    Falkenberg 3000 0 10 105,67
    Varberg 3000 0 8 76.15
    Kungsbacka 3000 0 4 34.47

    PS: I cannot get a nice table, “tab” or “several spaces” are replaced by one “space”. I hope you can read the table anyhow.

    Is it the correct map Saab_35_41b2\ for the altitude hold fix, or shall it be Saab_35_41b3\ or perhaps Saab_35_41?
