Very nice indeed :) I have only one small problem - on the ground the rudder seems fine, but as soon as the model is air born it stops to work (visual and flight dynamic). Any ideas how to get the rudder work properly ?Heiko

The observer's head movement is keyed to turn and bank...

I'm not sure...I just checked mine & it works fine. I've had something like this happen before, and it seemed to be tied to engine RPM. Even on the ground. I could watch the rudder deflect normally, but if I advanced the throttle the rudder would snap back to neutral. It also affected the flight model. What are you using for a controller? I use a Saitek x45 along with CH pedals (both USB). I unplugged the pedals and then plugged them back in and the problem was gone. It's happened to me a few times, and not limited to one plane.

When this happened to me in the past it was because somehow the auto turn coordination (whatever it is called in FSX) was turned on.

Thanks for the comments!To clear up one thing...J. Kerr is my Dad, and the builder of the actual plane this is modeled after. I put him in as the manufacturer because he was! Hope I'm not confusing too many people...
