    Well, that was a revealing question. I was about to say, "The same as you should be using." Then, thinking, "Why does he ask this question ...", I checked the zip I uploaded and it did NOT have an .air file in it! Geezy Peezy Shupe! Not sure how I did that SNAFU but attached is the corrected zip with both the aircraft.cfg and the .air file included. My apologies to you and anyone who downloaded the original from my post above (deleted the original zip file). This FM is much improved over what you are using as it is totally different air file and flight dynamics.

    What speed and at what altitudes? I have not experienced this at any altitude all the way up to FL350 and all the way down as long as you are not over-speeding. (But still did not get any shaking there). EDIT: Maybe I am misunderstanding your point. I just took her up and down in over-speed conditions and still received no rudder shake. Smooth as silk throughout. In Building storms wx, I get moved around a little, normal for a light aircraft in heavy wx but see nothing out of the ordinary. The MOIs are calculated by the Airwrench program and should be accurate based on my inputs. Can you expound on what you are seeing?

    Thank you Sir. I admit the post above sounds a little negative but its because I am so picky about little things. Just flew it around the circuit again and I do really like it. I may continue to tweak it as I have time to chip away at the nigglies. :-)

    Thank you. This FM gives the aircraft a much better feel all around. And if you add some genuine DB sounds or equivalent, she can be awesome to fly. :-) It is a great looking model.

    Optional Replacement Flight Model for Kazunori Ito's FW-190V18 NOTE: I also included a replacement panel.cfg for those of you who are using the original Ito panel. This simply adds a view adjustment to see better over the 2D and VC panels. Flight Ops

    Whose aircraft is this? Where can I download it from? Happy to look at it but need more info guys. Is the K. Ito's aircraft model? I found it at Simviation if so. No issue with the original package dancing but ... it does need a new FM. I'll see what I can do.

    Thank you Anthin. I would not call this a masterpiece as I am so limited by gmax and FS9 as to how far I can take this. I am at "number of parts" boundaries and had to do some scaling back just to get this model to export. It is not poly heavy, just "number of parts" heavy. To export the Bounty, I must delete (unseen) parts from the exterior and interior (VC) models to get below the limits. This does not seem to affect frame rates in the sim, just the export of the model to the sim. I would also love to animate the sails for wind direction but there are so many rope lines for running rigging, that would be nearly impossible. The only remedy would be to eliminate some of the rigging. I do look forward to completing the textures so I can jump into the mechanics of animations and...

    The upper left hand corner says "Naval Action". In the first link, in the comments section, someone asks when this game will be released and the response was early 2015 I believe. Just google that and you will find the website and more info. Here: http://www.navalaction.com/#ageofsail DX11 only, Windows 7, and 4GB Ram required.

    LOL yes; but fortunately, the heavy lifting is done on the models. Now to finalize the textures and mapping, then concentrate on the animations and "flight model". :-) I am now limited by total parts (reached 1500 but consolidated many smaller or multiple occurrences parts through attaching) allowed so not sure how I will deal with the "crew" question. Nigel put together a really nice, albeit quick and dirty, sound set. Nice ambiance there. :-)

    I may have answered the question of the Dornier 335. I assumed that the version you listed (FS9 Freeware) was a full version, especially when I saw the size. Since it didn't have anything but textures after all that time downloading. . .I'm now downloading the SimTech version. . .this is probably the base model which the textures were an addition to. This has to be the largest freeware download I've ever done, lol. . .reaching almost 250 meg. lol
