I'm a new user of FS, having just got my FS2000 (I bought from the clearance bin), a month ago. I'm having a lot of fun, and getting better each day.
I try to be as accurate as possible, trying to get as close to landing patterns as I can get. I still struggle to get the jet into position along the glide scope. I usually have to get 20 miles from the airport, and get into position about 15 miles.
I try to keep my speed at 200KIAS when landing, but I think that may be low. I have problems with drifting. As a result I always landing right of the runway (I never drift left). I think it is likely caused by my cocking of the yoke, or rudder (I use a Thrustmaster Joystick).
What does the APR hold on Auto-Pilot do? I have as much success with, and without it. It doesn't seem to do anything.
I also can't do VFR landings, except with the Cessna's (which I don't like to fly as much).
What secrets, or advice, can anyone give me?
