Hark!

Can you hear that? Listen very carefully, it's the sound of a Pitts Special being final beta tested. :smt023

Re: Amphibian and floats are too quiet .... weird..

I never fly the amphibian/floats so I can't comment. I just didn't want you to feel ignored. :)

Re: Just purchased

Hi, welcome SW. You'll absolutely love that kite.
There's a co-pilot? I've had the BirdDog since day 3 and never knew that. :roll:

Re: Missing VA and black rectangle wings

You'll probably need to provide some information like: What video card, CPU, RAM etc. What was the error? You can find out by looking in Start\All programs\Admin tools\Event viewer. Click on 'Application Errors' and you'll see lots of red icons. The top ones are the latest. Find one with a date/time...

Re: Surprise!

I've just converted Eddy van Gelder's marvellous N51446 Northwind Aviation float to amphibian. Not quite as easy as I thought it would be (couldn't get rid of the green tyre treads!) The easy option was to swap the floats texture from the USAF model, but it didn't look right. With Eddy's permission ...

Re: finnish airforce ?

Linus, I can assure you that paint comes with the Safir. If you don't see it, first make sure that "Show all Variations' is checked. If you still don't see it, re-download the Safir.

Re: Any fix for ADF needle?

I'm not sure how helpful this is but it's my best shot. Orbx forum discussion about BirdDog or Scout. During the thread the subject of ADF behaviour came up.

BirdDog won btw. :grin:

Re: Broken gyro

Sorry to drag up this old thread but I made a delightful discovery the other day. If you forget to lock it and do a roll, roll in the opposite direction and the spinning gyro stops. Then you lock it and then UNlock it and it works again. :grin:
Just thought I'd share that with you. :wink:

Here's my FSX splash screen:

If you want to use it, right click, 'Save as' and save it in your FSX\Uires folder. Of course back up the original dlgsplash.bmp first. (But you knew that eh? :grin: )
