This is an update for FSX Acceleration of the Mistubishi Mu-2B by Bjorn Buchner. The author has added to both the 2D and virtual cockpit and updated the flight dynamics so it works in FSX. You need the original aircraft for this update to work (MU-2B2.ZIP). By Bob Chicilo.

Unzip to a folder of your choice. After backing up your air, and aircraft.cfg files, replace them with the ones in this update. Copy the pictures to the aircraft folder. Back up your panel folder and replace it with the one in this update.

If you have not already done so, copy the .cab files from the default aircraft panel folders that have them to the main FS gauges folder. For some the .cab flies will be .zip files, as .cab files are a type of zip file.

See [reference speeds] section of the aircraft.cfg file for operating speeds.

I added a second autopilot and a toggle for it for those who like a speed control. I also moved the original autopilot buttons and resized them so they are easier to see. I changed the background pictures for the 2D panel so there would not be screw holes for gauges that don't have screws showing beyond the face of the gauge.

Anyone: You have my permission to use any of my updates with the following conditions: One, you don't try to make money with them. Two, you don't try to hurt, or take something from anyone by using them.

Bob Chicilo.

This is probably as close as I will ever get to flying an MU-2, particularly since the SFAR on the aircraft was issued.

What I currently have in terms of computing power is an iMac 9,1 with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 2.93 GHz, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 memory and OS X 10.6.8. I do have Windows Vista Home Edition in it but it is separated from the rest of the system by Boot Camp. Also my wired mouse quit and Windows Vista won’t “talk” to my wireless mouse. Also there isn’t any software of any kind currently in my system related to flight simulation.

Additionally I’d be looking for recommendations as to control yokes and rudder pedals. Found some on sporty’s pilot shop, what do you think of those? Also noticed in accessories on the same website a Flight Simulator Multi-Engine Throttle Quadrant. Of course I wouldn’t be using all of them just the first two for throttles and the next two for condition levers which, as I recall, are what control the pitch of the MU-2’s props. Speaking of which I have read where some pilots use those to help steer the aircraft in taxiing as steering via the rudder pedals to the nose wheel requires some not inconsiderable effort.
