Reggie, is it possible to post the .zip as an attachment here? I'm not a member at SOH, and so I'm evidently unable to download the file.Mike.

Thanks Reggie. I've registered at SOH, so I'll be able to get answers to my questions there.Mike.

No way. It would be a real drag doing it that way. It's a recreation of the original 1934 McRobertson race in which pilots mostly only flew during the day. We've given ourselves just short of a month to go the distance. It'll be fun!It kicks off on the 6th of July, so there's still time to sign up if you're interested.Mike.

Yeah, seriously, join in! Should be fun and quite the challenge.The route is actually pretty tough as there's limited ADF nav aids towards the later stages (India/Southeast Asia/Australian Outback...)I'll be tuning up my 4 Tank DC-3 tomorrow, putting the finishing touches on the radios (gonna have to switch them out since the Radio freq fix for the DC-3 doesn't seem to work in FSX). Drift gauge is already installed. Then I just need to do a couple time compressed runs at different altitudes+power settings to see what sort of legs I can get out of the 4 tanks version before planning out my route.My plan is to run back to back legs each weekend until the finish. Ideally I'd like to get to the mandatory stop in India this weekend, but since I have to attend a wedding on Saturday evening, I might not be able to do that and might have to just stop in Baghdad for the week..I still need to figure out how to config the Duenna to accept and give me a green light when using ActiveSky-X weather...
