Unless Roger Dial and crew release a seperate model without her, there's no way to remove her.[TABLE BORDER=0][tr][td]

>I know most of u guys think its cute to have that chick fly >with ya, but is there a way to remove her ? Agree 100%...I highly doubt there is a way unless they release another model without her. But if they did, I would probably be much more likely to buy it (thats probably my biggest dislike of the 421).ScottEdit: Tim and myself must have posted at same time :)

I think she's quite cute.She's also very convenient as a cup-holder during long, thirsty flights.....:-smile12

I hate those pilot and copilot figures you can see from inside the cockpit. God their ugly !!Takes all the realism out of flying. :-)SteveCYYZ

Oh sure, you come out with a change after I put white-out on my monitor screen!Now I have to order 421 just to see what they are talking about...But I think you are correct on the "cartoon" co-pilots that are creeping into some of the flightdecks here.Hmmm sounds like a Rodney Dangerfield line-"Your co-pilot is so ugly...." (fill in the rest)-That the tower told you to go-around then closed the airport-ATC changed your call sign to Medusa Flight-FBO's refuse to park you-you make the co-pilot fly "under the hood" for 3 hours.-The crash/fire/rescue crew responds as you park and ask if your copilot survived the accident-Animal control arrives with a large kennel.Timothy

Roger,Great plane :-)I love it.Maybe you will have to offer alternative co-pilots blondes, brunettes, red heads.....What about in the rear a shapely leg would liven up the view when sitting in the back seat loooking forward.BTW I have flown with two female co-pilots real world and they werent to far off yours .....well maybe not quite the same ;-)Peter

You're right, I believe it was a mistake to put her on the cockpit.Honestly, I would not mind an empty cockpit. I mean, really -- can the Flight1 team put out an alternative downloadable 421 model "without" any pilots? I bet that's not a lot of work to do that :-badteethWhile we're in the subject of things I dislike about the 421 (what's not to like on this beauty?): I would have preferred to have a 421 airraft "without" the pilot and co-pilot's wooden privacy panels behind their seats, sort of like the Baron and many of the 421C that are "open cockpit" -- this would give us a much better backward view. There is no way for us to remove all this (low-tech) wooden stuff aourselves, right? :-bangAnyway, regardless of the crew and BBQ-style old-fashiones wood appointments (:-erks), this is the best FS2002 GA aircraft money can buy :-yellow1Best reagards,Kerke (KTMB)---

Roger,It's a fully textured object?If so, then people can replace the texture with a black transparent one - then everyone's happy.I don't have it, so I don't know.

Hehehe, Rodney Dangerfield. He's one of my all time favorites.Peter, actually she started out as a blonde, but somehow became a brunette in the building process :)LOL, Scott. I used that technique all the time when I was building FSDS models for cutting out windows, prop blades, etc. That was very clever but it didn't occur to me :)Here is a collection of alternative textures for the pilots to change anything from raising the neckline on Gina, to making one or both of the pilots invisible :)http://www.the-hangar.net/pilots.zipBest,

Roger,While I do not own the 421 (i'm a bit of a cheapskate...), I have to mention how impressed I am by your quick responses to questions/concerns users have about the plane, and your fantastic willingness to help and offer solutions. (Not just in this thread, but on all the threads I have seen regarding this product.) This kind of attention to the customer and willingness to help are certainly deciding and crucial factors when I am faced with the decision to cough up my money. :)You're winning a customer here all the time buddy.

eko, the 421C is fantastic, and addictive too!At age 46, the 421C is currently the best toy in my playroom :-yellow1Kerke (KTMB)---

Hi Kerke, To answer your question to the removal of the wooden divider panels..You see this would a lengthy process...First we would have to contact the local FSDO and get a field approval for removal of the panels since these are required, then once the paper work was done we would have to hire a certified AI and get him to sign it off and send in a 337 form and wait approval.And since we are running a part 135 operation with the 421C we certainly want to do things above board. So the answer is.. No :-lol Best,Jim Rhoads

>While I do not own the 421 (i'm a bit of a cheapskate>You're winning a customer here all the time buddy. I agree -- with the exception for me that I don't own the 421 because it seems like a *lot* of trouble to fly, according to the review on Flightsim that I read (I'm not really that good a pilot -- I need a plane like the Deb to help me out with my poor flying skills).But this *would* be a company I'd provide my custom to, given their quick response.

Hi Kelleym,What Andrew was trying to imply in the review was that in the "real" aircraft engine managment is the key to engine longevity and that equates to big dollars going farther.The 421 is very well behaved and predictable, a real joy to fly.In real life as it is in this sim model. Dont be afraid that it is too much for you to handle in FS, it is quite the opposite. It is very easy to fly. Best Regards,Jim Rhoadsflight1

To flight1 guys,I hope u guys didnt take my post the wrong way, I mean its cool that you put her there, and she is not bad looking and stuff but just should included the option not to have her :) So whom ever put that effort to put her is my hats off, just some of us prefer blonds :) hehe , But the plane is awesome overall.Thanks,Andrei Malishkin-=AM=-

Andrei,Roger has been kind enough to make some alternative textures so that a few users can get the changes they requested via this forum.What Roger has provided does not constitute inclusion in any upgrade that we will release. I would encourage other 3rd party authors to make any changes they see fit and share them with the community via library uploads at Avsims or others such as FlightSim.com etc.Right now we are working on enhancements that will provide better functionality within the product.Thanks,Jim RhoadsFlight1
