    Karen emailed them again the other night, received an auto-responder (the 2nd one) stating that there is a delay in communications currently. You're one step further ahead than us. We'll follow it up again on Monday evening our time, unfortunately there's not much we can do. They've now received 3 emails from us and waiting a further week (from last Monday to this), is bothersome, however we will keep prodding them along until we know for sure the product is available. We apologise for this inconvenience.

    That's an issue with the HUD cone and the windshield, we've never been able to fix why that happens. :(

    On the subject of upgrading, you should be able to install 1.2 over 1.1 without an issue (I did it here). Though if you want to make sure you don't leave any unwanted files around, before installing 1.2, just delete the IRIS Battlefield Airlifter folder from your Simobjects/Airplanes folder first.

    <fingers in ears> La la la... lol. Actually, you can do two things to improve performance in 1.2 in regards to the screens. Either you can reduce the pixel_size value in the panel.cfg from 1024,1024 to 512,512 or you can comment out gauges from the VCockpit03 section. VCockpit03 controls the Copilot's MFD, FMS and standby FMS. It was added in 1.2 to allow you do customise the co-pilot's MFD and not affect the pilot's MFD. So removing the section will remove the Co-Pilot's MFD, and two Co-Pilot FMS units and should increase some performance. The Copilot model can be removed via the FMS/SYSTEM PAGE/AC CONFIG/ page. :)

    I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your patience with the distributors and our release of version 1.2. We e-mailed all the stores again yesterday to clarify the initial e-mail we had sent them on Sunday so remove any confusion they may have had. As it stands, we are aware that all stores with the exception of possibly one or two now have version 1.2 available for all customers. If you find that your store of purchase has not updated the files to 1.2 within the next 24 hours, please let me know and I'll once again chase it up with the distributor in question. Thanks David.

    Version numbers in the installers should be 1.2 I downloaded them from the IRIS Server last night to triple check. Definately 1.2 on the IRIS Store.

    Hi guys, 1.2 was uploaded to the IRIS Servers on the 5th of October and the distributors were notified the same day. I've not received any email returns so as far as I know they have the files. I'll nudge them this evening to see if there is any issue. Unfortunately whilst we can control the speed of things being uploaded to IRIS, we can't control how fast the distributors update their files (or read their emails!). David.

    Thanks Yoyo and CG_1976... We really love hearing ideas and suggestions about what to do next and whilst we normally have a few planes in the pipeline at any one time, we can sometimes fit in something special if the conditions are right. ;) What we normally look for when researching an aircraft are things like, public resources such as manuals, videos and images. In some circumstances we're lucky enough to get subject matter experts such as pilots and engineers on-board as well. We've certainly considered the Orlik, it's a plane I really like the look of, so who knows what may come next year. :) All I can say is we do have another trainer planned and all will be revealed in the next few days if the schedule remains on track.

    Hi guys, I had a great birthday yesterday, thanks very much. I spent some well earned downtime with the family, which is what it's all about for me! Back to work today though (boo hiss.. lol ;) ) Timber, to activate the GPS tracking in the aircraft, I normally follow a few steps, though only two are required. 1. Ensure the PFD NAV mode shows MSN (MISSION/PLAN) not TCN (TACAN/NAV) by pressing the NAV button on the left side of the PFD. 2. Ensure the aircraft autopilot is in NAV hold mode and A/P master is on (either pilot or co-pilot side). I also make sure my Pilot CDI Source knob is set to PLN so that the PFD NAV1 information area is showing mission data.

    Thanks Jeansy, I'm glad you like it... took me most of the day to do, and it's based of the old caribou paint scheme.

    Ferry, Unfortunately there really is no quick fix for it, though I agree, the older AC-27J model looks more 'beefy', I'll see about adding it in as a model option in 1.2
