Glad to hear good new about the Seawind Ken! :-) which panel did you decide to modle your panel after? The blue one, or the tan one? Hope to see those Panel shots soon!PS: Did you figure out how to get the seawind to land on water with the gear up?

Sort of did a combination on the panel - but used a real life model. This won't be a 3D panel, but a photo-panel. Believe me - it is looking rather good - I just can't seem to get a size to post that will show it off nicely at the moment!Thanks to a lot of hard work on Wayne Roberts' part, we do have the plane landing on the water with the gear up, and you can take-off and land on runay with the gear down. Unlike MSFS 2002 however, you cannot put the gear down while in water and "drive" onto the land. I think that's a limitation within Fly! II.One issue that is "sticking us" right now - we cannot get the plane to come to a dead stop in the water! I've got a WMV file of her taking off from water, and one I made for Seawind, INC. at their request, but cannot find a site that could handle the sizes and (more than likely) the hits for a monthly session happening in a week or so! I am going to check with PilotSim7828 to see if the new FlyDeveloper.com site will be able to handle the WMV files or not.Currently, Alejandro is busy with school and other "pressing" projects (not to mention a little one to help take care of!), but he has promised to help with the rest of the systems problems soon. So everyone, I've no real idea of a release date. There's still a beta phase we need to go through to make sure we have the bugs pretty much squashed. Am hoping everyone will find the wait being worth it! Many Cheers and a great Holiday Season to All!Ken Wood :-sun1http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/bannernewkw.jpgGateway 700X; Intel P4 2.4GHz; 512MB RAM; NVIDIA Ti4200 4X AGP 128MB; SB Audigy; Thrustmaster TopGun Fox 2 Pro Shock

Thanks for that, Harald! Nice to know the real plane is getting plenty of attention there in Europe as well! There is a Seawind Europe webpage also.. use a search engine on SEAWIND to find it. ;-)Many Cheers!Ken Wood :-sun1http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/bannernewkw.jpgGateway 700X; Intel P4 2.4GHz; 512MB RAM; NVIDIA Ti4200 4X AGP 128MB; SB Audigy; Thrustmaster TopGun Fox 2 Pro Shock
