Sorry about the library folks - it wasn't me! Some of you may have received an email copy :-rollNo, this time there's no copilot. Gotta leave space for sim-fanatic passengers who want to ride up-front ;)The right-side view was restricted enough - and I ran out of polygons. With a keen eye, you'll notice the 'pilot' is rather thin...Anyway, once the library is cleared-up I hope you alll download it OK and enjoy playing with it :-wave ******************* Jonathan Point *******************

Jon,Just started a flight San Fran to Sac, this is a beautiful aircraft. Fly's wonderfully. WOW!!! I really like this one. I must confess though she may get a little "skinned-up" when I fly her to Washington, as I'm determined to try a flight out of Impasse.This plane litterly leapt into the air. Throttled up and acceleration was quick and smooth (then I made it to EOR and got takeoff clearance. heh). Brakes are nice and strong. Been very easy to control in-flight.That's a great dash panel and the views are very good. Slick use for the radio panel.Thank you Jon!!!JimB.Blast it, wanted to post a screen shot, but Opera seems to be blocking it. Darn.Have to ask: That pilot texture, is that you? JimB

...And so it came to pass that Frizbee did gaze upon the aircraft, and verily he was well pleased with what he saw, for it was good.One question thou...what keys do I need to know for the autopilot? Apr, lvl, spd, etc.

Yes, I remember some login problems some time ago and those were related to Avsim's use of cookies that didn't seem to refer to the site from which they were being sent. If it doesn't work you may try to play with your security settings. Login as well as uploads require that you accept Avsim cookies, even those that may appear to be "third party". Another thing, the images have to be JPEG and the max file size is 125 kb. Hence, you'll have to convert and reduce size and/or quality until it will pass.Here's a screenshot taken north of the Boeing Field:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/67664.jpgbest regards,Hans Petter

Chris, oim floin tha pline properly "mate" :-)Besides, this is a turboprop rather than a "prop" plane. Other turboprops cruise at more than 200 knots. In many ways a turboprop is the best of two worlds -- a jet engine for power and a prop that bites into the air. Jet engines are uneconomical until you reach a certain altitude and piston engines get short of breath before you reach high altitudes. A turboprop, on the other hand, combines the low altitude performance of props with the high altitude capability of jets.Hans Petter

Hi,I used IE5.5 and posted at screenshots forum. My Opera is v6.1. I like it a lot. It's much faster at loading screens than IE, and it's downloader seems quicker as well. I'll look into Operas cookie setting; though I had set them previously to see Avsim as a trusted sight like IE is set. This allows me to post here at the forum. I suspect Opera may have some sort of pop-up tool that I need to configure to allow the screen shot window to open. Opera imported my IE favorites in a strange way. It made multiple copies of all the folders, and some of the folders are empty. So I have some cleaning up to do in it (opera).http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=vie...t&file_id=67647

For Opera, please try these settings:Preferences --> PrivacyEnable referrer loggingEnable automatic redirectionAccept cookies with illegal pathsBasically, accept all cookies and check whether this helps. And yes, blocking pop-ups may be a problem too since the "choose file for upload" box may be interpreted as a common nuisance pop-up.Nice screenshot by the way! The time of day (dawn/dusk) makes it look quite interesting.Hans Petter

Jon, that plane will easily become one of my favorite ones. I like the way it looks as well as the way it flies. Thanks a bunch :-)Agtim, that Switzerland will easily become one of my favorite regions. I'll admit that until now I haven't used the Switzerland region much. But now I see a high res region with high res elevation! A STOL aircraft with turboprop engines is ideal for Switzerland -- we can climb above any mountain and land at every airport :-)best regards,Hans Petter

Hi Jon, just a quick note to say "thank you!!".The Otter you've managed to put together is far beyond what I could haver ever imagined in my wildest dreams about FU3. You've got me away from that "other game" as I hadn't been in months.Yoy gifted guys will never cease to amaze me. With creations like this, in my eyes FU4 is out!!Thanks once again, best regards.
