Yea, I know. Sometimes it doesn't make sense. I think Tower uses distribution centers around the country where as Horizon is somewhat smaller and can ship right from their door.
Highflyer. What OS are you using? Is the power to the tower connected?

The Harrier is a challenge to put down in one piece.

Addon4??

Hi Mary.
The Harrier is a completely new adventure. I like the challenge. I got my copy Monday and I'm getting to where I can backup, hover, pivot and fly down the runway at a slow walk. I find landing after zooming around at speed, (and it is FAST), to be quite "interesting". You have to take your inertia into consideration and use your throttle and nozzles accordingly. I crash on landing frequently if I get below my effective control speed. I'm getting there.
Is there a advanced nav quide that could show nozzle percentage? I'm using my mouse to get complete varience in the nozzles and it would be nice to know just where the nozzles are pointing at when beyond visual range.
Thanks.
Hobiewan

addon-4??

Hi again,Mary.
I went to advanced Nav guides and use my flap indicator to give me an idea where the nozzles are at. At full down nozzle, I get about 22.9 degrees of down flap, and at full back I get 0.1. So if I want have nozzle deflection I just go to around 11-12 degrees. It would be nice if in the future patches you put out that you could include a nozzle indicator calibrated to the actual nozzle position.
The Harrier is really a "gas" to fly. The more I fly it, the more fun it gets.(less time waiting for the reload after crash!!)
Highflyer; mine loaded right in in a couple of minutes.
C-Ya folks.

Highflyer; my copy fairly leaped upon the drive. The Harrier is "refreshing"!
Long story short; I asked Mary if there was a nozzle angle indicator in advanced nav guides.
I realized after watching the Harrier from an angle, the flaps moved in relation to the nozzles. I don't know if they are directly or proportionally related.
(supposed to be a short story)Using the mouse with my non-usb controller, I can select how much nozzle to use. You can use the flap nav guide to give a pretty good idea of how much nozzle is deflected.
Makes it easier to setup your approach.
Gasp. I'm out of air.
Bailou.........

Highflyer,
I know you have discovered by now the Harrier is a different animal from regular aircraft and helicopters. I believe the part about 5' off the ground bounce.
Glad you got going.
BTW, are you using interlink or your own radio? I'm using the old RF radio and the mouse controls the amount of nozzle and flap deflection.
C-Ya.

OK, now I got it. My install looked good then when I started RFG2 it asked for the #4 disk and then sorta died. If restarted it would start then ask for the disk and die. I could run using "clean" but did not have #4 available. So tonight I started "clean" but instead of running RFG2 I put the #4 disk in and it started the install again. this time it worked right and that harrier is great. How long before someone offeres a model with the same features? Anyway I have a friend who was a pilot in the Marines and flew the harrier. He said the first time he tried a vertical landing he bounced about 5' high.
