- Tom Ruth's A300 - FDE fix for Change of Airport flight crash and Inop Autothrottle
problem. Fix for file uploaded 11/2/10: toms_a300_eastern.zip.

The problem on the flight crash after changing cities was caused
by the "static_pitch" parameter set too low. When the aircraft
was changed to a different airport, the flight (*not the system) crashed with placing
the aircraft on the runway.

The Auto-Throttle problem seemed to be related to code
in the electrical system that was missing.

I have also coded in alternate flight tuning section of "Aircraft.cfg"
as follows:

[flight_tuning]
cruise_lift_scalar=1.0
parasite_drag_scalar=1.0
induced_drag_scalar=1.0
elevator_effectiveness=0.7
aileron_effectiveness=0.7
rudder_effectiveness=2.4
pitch_stability=1.4
roll_stability=1.4
yaw_stability=1.4
elevator_trim_effectiveness=1.4
aileron_trim_effectiveness=1.0
rudder_trim_effectiveness=1.0

Default is values of all 1.0. This code change should make the aircraft more handleable.

If you have another version or repaint of Tom Ruth's A300, this should
also help with problems described with this fix.

The "fx_vclight_yellow" was left out of the original upload. Might be
a bit too bright for night flying. Place this file in the root "Effects" file.
