Get a better ISP! Big%20Grin.gif
If you'd read my post, you'd see it's nothing to do with my ISP - it's ONLY the P3D download that's doing this.

I'd also be interested to know if the download info on the P3D website for file 2 is correct? It says it's 3.98Gb So far, I've downloaded 4.2Gb of thatShocked.gif

I'm also using Flashgot, only at 5.6Kb.sec!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EDIT: just tested some other downloads with Flashget and FDM. They work at over 880kb/s Insane for a payware site!
Yeah theres also nothing wrong with my connection, i could understand downloading a freeware game would be slow, but this is just not good enough LM. They also apparantly forgot to hire some people to answer support mails.

I saw earlier today that the P3D site is having ISP and server issues according to their forum.

No idea any more. I unpacked the files and deleted originals. They are all now moved in my installation folder, all in one folder. Sorry.

Default aircraft's must not be deleted or removed ???HiQuestion: Has anybody ever deleted one of the default aircrafts, i.e. deleted the aircraft directory with its content ?I experienced a behavior of P3D that looks to me, as if P3D does not allow to delete any of the default aircrafts. As an example; I Deleted the default Piper_J3Cub completely, with its directory. After starting P3D again, a window opens, reading in its title "P3D" and "Please wait while Windows configures P3D", and "Gathering required information" . After approx. 10 minutes, P3D starts normally. After looking into the Airplanes directory; Piper_J3Cub is back again. I need to say that no automatic backup or restore software is installed. Can anybody confirm this behaviour ?Thank youBruno

I have received the solution from a Lockheed Martin developer.I have been advised to delete the P3D shortcut on desktop and to create a new one, if this helps ? YESSS, it does !!! I can now delete default AC's without invoking the "automatic restore" function.Bruno
