View Full Version : A-20, engine #2

Has any one else notice the propeler hub on the A-20 engine #2? It seems off of centerline and kinda wobbles. Engine #1 dosn't do that, so I was wondering if thats a bug, a proper representation, or just me? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I thought #1 was wobbly too. Maybe the 'hubs' are mere caps and are just like those plastic car wheel covers that aren't on properly?

Knowing this forum, someone will propbably appear with a genuine A-20 workshop manual and reveal all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

As far as I can tell both are wobbling.

I don't think they are meant to be like hubcaps, the hub cylinder contains the pitch change mechanism!

Possibly, the A-20 was stuck together hurriedly to get it on the v3.0 game. Maybe 1C didn't have time to properly test it. I'm glad to have the A-20 now and not next week though, I'm glad they made that decision.

It was knocked out of true in a taxiing accident and they didn't have a spare http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

#1 wobbling a bit but #2 looks like it gonna fly off any moment.

I've asked the ground crew about it, and they say it's perfectly safe. It feels as though it's on tight, and it hasn't fallen off yet ;-)

Yeah, it looks liek the shaft has been bent... I guess I shouldn't have used it to clip that zero's wing...

Noticed it too, found out my crew chief tried to trim the palm trees at his girlfriend place.
