  1. Has this flyer also an old GNS? The cockpit images are often too dark and very small, to identify the type. Aware?

    1. You referred 'old GPS' - than yes. an old one. In the next update I'll replace it with the X-Plane's pop-up advanced GPS.

  2. Hi JetMan,
    it would be great if you make a better 3d cockpit, similar to that of the historical airplane. The simple one you made works quite well, but looks so-so, contrasting with the external lines of the airplane which are very good and accurate.
    Anyway, the plane flies well, the price is low and I like it

    1. Hi Auris.
      Thanks for your comment.
      I do have plans to update the cockpit so it will be more authentic. Of course it will be a free update, as well as an additional color scheme, the red and white one.

      Thanks again :)

    1. Hi Spaceriot!
      Yes, this plane is to get update. The potential of this aircraft for further growth is huge and It will happen not too far in the future. Main focus would be on 3D cockpit.
