Hello!

After not playing FSX for a couple years I have recently gotten back into it and just came across your aircraft today (actually it was last night and I am now typing this very late/early). After watching a couple videos and looking at some screenshots I had to purchase it. I admit the Canadian Army version was a big draw for me, as quality CDN military paints always are. They are not too common so I tend to hoarde them hehe.

Anyways the transaction was smooth and the activation no problem. The aircraft, outstanding. I look forward to many hours flying her.

I did have one small graphic glitch where the co-pilot's hat did not render leaving him flat-headed and rather creepy looking. Reloading the flight fixed it and it has not appeared again. If this is a glitch you have not seen I can supply a screenshot.

Thank you for a quality product!

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:
Computer: Black box with a bunch of electrical looking stuff inside. Lots of fans and blue lights and it sits there humming away gently and lets me play games on it.

You would've had you read the bloody manual Ron :lol: :roll:

My bad, it's not in the manual, it's in the forums somewhere, but I can't find it now. There's a list of <shift><ctrl>keys and, what number does what. I think it's 4 or 5 that puts the copilot in, but you can only see them from the outside I think.

I don't need no steenkin' co-pilot anyway! :grin: I like to be alone up there.

BTW, Where is the bloody manual? :)

Download it anyway. Then if it isn't there after installing the main product, just install the update :)

Haven't used the Amphib version very much, but she is just as nice to fly as the wheeled version. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. She's a lovely bird for sight seeing :)
