    Thanks for the links! :applause: I have the "Shark" texture, so I think I'll see how that fits on the amphibian model. Otherwise, I'll keep digging - maybe I'll find a paintkit...

    Thanks Larry - I'll give it a try while I keep looking. I had Eric's wheeled version a decade or so back and I remember how well it flew. I was hoping for the same success with the amphib version.

    While I'm at it, let me ask if anyone knows where I can get my hands on the Eric Dantes Twotter Amphibian model. I can find the land version with the panel update easy enough, but all I can find related to the amphib version are repaints.

    After digging into both Bing and Google satellite views, I do believe that VRMM is the correct airport - thanks much!!!

    While looking for some good desktop backgrounds, I came across these pics that look to be from the same location. The problem is, I can't find where that location is. The first thing I'd like to know is where these were snapped, and then I'd like to know if there's an freeware scenery pack that does it justice. Any ideas out there?

    "Imaging" is sort-of a deluxe version of backing up your files. It's actually taking a full snapshot of your entire hard drive and cloning it to a backup. If something crashes, you restore your last backed up image. Of course, this takes specialized software, including a bootable disk or thumb drive. Also, depending on the amount of data, the process can take hours. But... I can tell you from experience, the effort can be worth it. My last desktop suffered a critical corruption of some can't-live-without-it system file and my backed up image was the only way to get back up and running again! Edit: Some of these look promising. I'd look deeper, but I no longer have the external storage space to use them....

    I remember seeing a procedure for giving yourself full control admin rights to the FS9 folder, but it's been a while since my Windows classes so I don't want to give bad info. Search for articles about folder permissions and you should get what you need.

    That Zephyr looks like a nice low & slow addition to the hangar for a nice and efficient weekend beach trip - or even a "hundred dollar hamburger!"

    I've been running a standard X-52 for several years now and never had a glitch. I love being able to use the two rotaries on the throttle for mix and pitch, plus the linear slider is mapped to the spoilers. There's one button on the throttle that I normally keep mapped to the throttle decrease (F2) for reversing jets and t-props on landing. When I fly Manfred's Connies, I change that to the prop RPM decrease (Ctrl+F2). This means I can land and reverse the props without having to take my hands off of the controls - gotta love that!
