i've downloaded it from Simviation, http://www.simviation.com/downloads.hmtl then look in the FS2004 section for MISC, on page 14 you can download the Stalwart and on page 24 you can download a update so it can float in water. only when you look at the pictures that are included with the update, you see that on the pictures from realworld the stalwart sinks until cabin and in FS2004 it sinks almost nothing. and i hope that somebody knows how i can adjust the stalwart so it sinks until cabin, just like the real one :)i hope you like the stalwartgrtzz kai

I think I have fixed it!Download the file I have attached to this message. The Zip file contains the aircraft.cfg file, with modified contact points. Make a copy of your original file, just in case you don't like my file :-lolExtract the file into the Stalwart folder, and replace the existing file. Load FS2004, and hopefully enjoy :)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/175895.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/175898.zipThe original file was by Malcolm Steck and Mitsuya

It works for me :-hmmmhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/175928.jpgTry creating a new flight, and then tell me what happens! :)I'm sorry it isn't working - the contact points system in FS2002 and FS2004 should be identical. Maybe there is a difference in the "water line" simulation? :-hmmm

The "water line" simulation cannot be adjusted. I am really confused as to why it doesn't work in FS2004. I am sorry that I couldn't fix it for you :(. I hope to buy FS9 very soon, and hopefully I can get the Stalwart working for you :)

That bounce seems to be the way FS9 handles the transition from land to water and back. it does the same with an amphibian plane. try taxiing the caravan amphibian into or out of the water, you will notice the same bounce.

I think you're right, John :). The transition between land and water cannot be adjusted :(. Try starting from the water, and my contact points work nicely ;)
