What's hanging off the vertical stabilizer?

Recommended Posts

I've done a reinstall of P3D and my PMDG fleet and now have something hanging off the top of the vertical stabilizer.  It looks like it's hanging by a wire and has a red bob or something like that attached.  What is it and how do I get rid of it?  I don't see anything in my aircraft setup, but maybe I'm getting blind.  Thanks!!!!

may be in the intro. and may be an option, but mine is there in the 739 and it's opted off.  How 'bout that?

It's a Boeing seed pod. When the jetstream is just right, it breaks off from the aircraft, lands, then, over a few months, germinates & grows into another 737. ;)  Other species are available:-

EDIT: Sorry Chuck! OK enough of the ribbing. I believe it's a static pressure line to get readings which aren't influenced as much by the aircraft it's fitted to. :cool:
