I've just completed the first three legs of the included bush strips adventure!  A great component of this package.  I absolutely recommend if you get the package make use of the included adventure around Eastern Victoria.  Although I've been there in real life I've never flown over it and I'm learning things every minute of the flights!

Hi

I have just bought the aircraft , looks great.

Would you know how I would be able to change the call sign and the tail number?

It does not seem to change from the default 24-4929,

Thanks

 

Hi,

 

Welcome to the forums.

 

I'm not sure if the ability to change the visual tail number has been implemented in the SDK yet.  It is possible to do with default aircrat, but not any 3rd party aircraft that I have seen.  You can change between several different visual tail numbers by changing the livery.

 

Cheers,

Hi David

I got those two aircraft from you for repaints some while ago, you wanted me to do. How would I be able to get the updated versions?

 

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the reply, That's a pity was hoping to fly my Jab in the sim, would be very cool especially on bad weather days :)

Smiler, drop me some pictures and I'll see what I can do. :) Side on would be great to get the decals repainted correctly.

Ebo, you star!  Let me know your e-mail address and I'll hook you up with a copy!  I lost your contact details, so didn't get a chance to touch base on your awesome CTFC and ZU-OPS paints you did, but they fit in oh so well. :D

Let me know if you have any more you want to add lol.

Hi David

That would be wonderful, It would be great if you could do that. I have attached a picture of the aircraft as requested.

Much appreciated

Thanks

Picked this up last night, looks amazing and seems to handle pretty well.  I was wondering if you had custom LVARs for the panel switches?  They don't seem to be working with the Saitek switch panel and SPADNext using the normal MSFS 2020 simconnect events.

Tried to take it out on a maiden flight but whenever I click anywhere on the panel I get a CTD.   Tried an uninstall/reinstall, no difference.

Same for me, worked fine yesterday before the MSFS update.  Now clicking any of the cockpit controls seems to CTD.

I bought the aircraft a few days ago. As you can see from the attached photos,
almost half of the body of the pilot is visible from outside. Please save him from
not jettison himself from the aircraft when he does not intend to do so! I wonder
if this is happening only to me since I don't find other people complaining about it
in your Forum.

Just tested the plane in external view, no problems in my MSFS.

 

 

The shots above remind me of what you have seen during formation flying :lol:.
