Byron Warwick has one originally written for FS2002, which works in FS2004 and can be found in the Avsim Library here:http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID...02ac&DLID=31379If you also want to try a single place UL trike, I've just added this one to the library, and it can be found here:http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID...4ac&DLID=124623Hope this helps!Regards,JohnEdit:One item to add about Byron's Mainair, it can be a bit difficult to start in FS2004 and it is also overpowered. After install, these two edits to the aircraft.cfg help quite a bit:Change the line below to appear as follows, will help with startup:normalized_starter_torque=1.000Change the line below to appear as follows, will help with engine power and also accurately reflects the 582's # of cylinders:number_of_cylinders=2

That brings back memories!I owned the predecessor to the Blade back in the late 80's called Mainair 'alpha' also in bright yellow.I nearly killed myself more than once and I remember being generally terrified at all times flying it!!Glad I took up the sim instead, a trifle more relaxing......regards Jim

That's very helpful, thank you very much!!!I've been looking for one for a while now, but I saw some land on a beach just the other day, and it's made me want to get on for FS even more. I'll pop the pictures in the Hanger forum, if you want to check them out. :DThanks again,- Jon
