  1. Orbx: I recently purchased the EA-7 Optica and have a major issue with the engine. When I takeoff the engine dies about 15 minutes after departure (I recently used Orbx Catalina). I can generally restart using Control + E and it seems to fix it in the air. On the ground if the engine dies it will not restart. This occurred when I sat at the ramp for a few minutes. Control + E didn't work on the ground either (seems to work only in the air to restart). The Garmin GPS will also stop working if I sit on the ramp for 15 minutes as well. All other default aircraft do not have this issue at all. I have attempted to fix this issue by reinstalling the aircraft from Orbx Central and this did not fix it. Also, flight model is set to Modern. Also, I made sure I do not have the mixture setting assigned to my joystick. Please note this aircraft worked perfectly on SU5 and Hotfix 1. This problem just recently started with Hotfix 2. I am using the latest version of MSFS 2020. Also, I have followed the checklist exactly. I have also tried just Control + E on the ground and then did a takeoff 5 minutes later. Same problem.

  3. Iain's use of the checkerboard & red livery inspired me to try it out of Wanaka Airfield in the South Island, NZ, in conjunction with Orbx NZ Mesh. Using different SoFly weather scenarios. TTM (MSFS) SoFly Calm Winds Calm Winds again. SoFly UK Light Snow. SoFly UK Spring Day (One of my favorites as it always gives a mix of distant light rain, clouds, blue sky - a bit of everything)
  4. Testing the Optica over London. Perfect sightseeing platform!
  5. Orbx NZ Mesh, Optica, in the vicinity of Lake Tekapo, South Island of New Zealand. TTM (MSFS)
