Yep, best Piper Super Cub is by the FSD team (payware) but worth every penny.www.fsd-international.comBest J3 Cub by Manuel Medel, S. Small, Lavigne, Swindle (search for "Medel" here at Avsim).Best Regards, Uwe

Yep, here's the info I have on it. Great model, and it has real nice "out of the cockpit" views as well. It was originally for FS2000, but they put out a small update for FS2k2. If you can't find it, email me and I'll zip it up for you.FS2000 Piper J-3 Cub Maximum Complexity visual model.

So happens I purchased the FSD Super Cub just last week. Haven't had much time to spend with it yet, but when I did I had some problems with the view. Since I have no significant experience with tail draggers, I expected some effort getting used to the lack of view forward while on the ground. But I also had problems with the view forward when in the air, and trying to land.Do you have any tips for this tail dragger novice about how to get a good view forward?-Basil

Basil...In the Panel.cfg of the FSD Super Cub is a "Views" section (" substituted here for the brackets in the .cfg file).In "Views" is this line:VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=2.5, 0.0, 0.0Change the 2.5 to a higher value to raise your eyepoint. I find 6.5 works best for me.Of course, back-up the original Panel.cfg before doing any tweaking.Hope this helps,

In the 2d cockpit, you can raise and lower the eyepoint by using SHF-BKSP and SHF-ENTER. That way you can start with a raised eyepoint to see the runway, and lower it as the tail rises on takeoff. db
