Hi All,

We are trying to 'rewind' (if you like) a flight to a particular previous time. Much like a rewinding facility. Managed to set everything apart from 2 things!

The first (and most critical) being airspeed. After doing some reading around the subject, it’s apparent that this isn't directly possible however. We would like to get to the bottom of this once and for all, and if the solution is deriving the airspeed through calculations and setting other variable we are happy to do this.

has anyone been successful in deriving airspeed? and what are the definitive variables that will need to be set in resulting in the right airspeed reading?

The second, on the HSI, the localizer needle. We haven't found any offsets that drive the heading whcih the needle is pointing to. Any ideas?

Thanks very much

With FS9 I don't think you can set the airspeed directly. With FSX you can set it, but only at the same time as setting initial position.

The value is the Course setting, or "OBS" as Microsoft calls it. For NAV1 it is 0C4E, for NAV2 it is 0C5E.

Thanks very much Pete,

Ok we will start look at variables that affect airspeed, accelerations, pitch, etc.. and set these to achive the desired airspeed. Will update when we have something a bit more usuable.

Thanks again
