    Sorry to hear it but am not surprised - was half expecting it given his other commitments. A shame he can't build two quad props alongside each other, sort of like the Olympic and the Titanic... I guess the question now becomes, who's the next Dr. Metzger...?

    Quick question, Pat - are you by any chance parked near a fuel pump? What you're describing is a standard behavior in FSX - am not sure if it carries over to P3D. The cure is to move to any other parking away from the fueling point. If you're not at fueling then obviously this isn't the issue, so apologies and please disregard.

    Yes, thanks for that (and to Roger for the shorthand version). Had to google to get the references but thanks to your posts I've now got it stickied - literally - a post-it on my monitor. Most appreciated!

    Thanks for the guidance. In my case I had to shift even a little farther forward - to -6.0. Individual system differences, I guess. But it's a much more enjoyable cockpit to work in now - a good experience made just that much better. Thank again!

    Am continuing to love Manfred's C-47v2 and am spending a huge amount of time with it. One quick question - is it just me, or is the eyepoint for the pilot view in the VC a little far back? When I turn my head left (using TrackIR), I find that I'm looking at the bulkhead, and need to lean forward to see out the side window. With TrackIR, it's obviously not hard to lean forward, but I'm wondering if anyone else had a similar reaction and tried to shift the eyepoint forward. If so, what settings worked for you? It may be that the eyepoint is accurate - it's been a few years since I've been in a C-47 cockpit (airshow visit to Whiskey 7), and can't recall exactly where the seat was relative to the window. So if I'm wrong, please advise. But if you had the same reaction, please advise...
