  1. Since this is essentially a beta, is every update to cost $24.95 - could get a bit pricey.

    Laminar Research : FlightSimExpo 2018 X-Plane Roadmap

    You make it easy to read and understand - thanks.
  3. Don't suppose there'll be any price break for us V2 owners?
  4. Guess I'll just tough it out with the one I have - it works.
  5. I guess those of us who bought the "touchover" are stuck with it.
  6. I pasted the registration number as requested and clicked reload. Unin/reinstalled and all's well.
  7. Have mercy - I'll be eighty next month. What key, where, how and anything else I should know?
  8. Just bought it. How do you get rid of the whole pilot body, headset stuff (especially those hands) from the cockpit - very annoying.
  9. An interesting thing I've found with Pete's Beaver, it's never the same. Perhaps this is due to my installation but each flight seems to produce different reactions to the different problems. I installed a tailwheel lock per your review and it seemed whizzo but will it be the same next time?. By and large it's a great plane - just listening to that R985 at cruise makes me nod off, relaxed with the knowledge that Laminar will have it fixed and ready at the threshold ready to go.
  10. Definitely a Diamond and no "rough cut" either. Every thing you say - all I could wish for would be a version with 'steam-ish' gauges. Not a big fan of the glass cockpit perhaps because that's not what I learned on. Old habits die hard.
  11. If that's rust rather than corosion on those floats then they're made of iron or steel - a real challenge, weight wise. As good as this one looks, it's difficult to ignore the AWX freeware - Manfred Jahn's FSX model ported for XP.
  12. Just purchased, based on your review and it's all you say. Flies extremely well and I prefer the steam gauge panel. The G1000 display is a bit mini for these old eyes.
  13. Another excellent review - my plastic is quivering. No water rudders 'cause it uses asymmetrical thrust to steer on water.
  14. Why can't you set the idle RPM with REP, at the carb like in RL? Just kidding .
  15. Some of us are not so enthused with REP. If the plane was optionally offered without that (S20 less), it might be a super deal. (Did you notice there are no top hinges for the engine side panels?)
