Thank you for all these links. Only they are in English and are useless to me !For the MB5 you are certainly right. I had to do a copy / paste without really interested in the result
For FDM I use this page : http://wiki.flightgear.org/Formalizing_Aircraft_Status
and you right... 3 is very more for the MB 5
The simplest in this case is that you modify the elements and you send me the result I would put online immediately. Maintain 200 models (soon 201) is not simple and sometimes I miss some important things
Why are the links useless? They are full of informations!
And why you aren't really interested in the resultat? I thought this sim is about flying... And I always thought FGFS target is quality and not quantity! I hope that the other 200 (or 199?) are much better.
Did not tried all yet....
I can fly aircraft in sims and understand physics behind flying a little bit. But I can't create any config files, so the aircraft will fly correct and realistic.
So sorry, I can't help help you and modify things.

thanks for taking your time to verify the ratings and for your feedback. This is very much appreciated.
If you start up the SenecaII for the first time, you are not in a cold and dark aircraft. For simplicity and the joy of the user, the aircraft has the Master-Switch in it's ON position on startup. The SenecaII remembers it's state upon exit of FlightGear (if you exit regularly and have autosave enabled). So, switch of the Master-Switch, exit FlightGear (ESC->Yes) and restart fgfs with the Seneca selected.Now, your Master-Switch is off and your gyros are silent. Once you kick the Master-Switch to on, the electrically driven gyros spin up.
Just out of curiosity: what's the 1% of the systems you are missing?
I really like flying the SenecaII. But I never noticed that the Master-switch is already in On-Position. I wouldn't care if it would be in OFF-position. Just a litte switch more to switch.... But nice feature with this Autosave-thing!
I don't know the real thing, so I wasn't sure if really all systems are done. So just for fairness I said 99%. No offense meant!
No objections - The outside model needs a rework. Actually I really never was too much interested in the outside view of the Seneca. I spend 99.9% of my time watching the instruments
Just a word on the window and instrument glasses: it's intentional that they are barely visible. They window glasses become hidden from the inside view. For my personal taste, many of the glass shaders and reflections are very much overdone. But that's a matter of taste.
Side Note: the Seneca's real-life counterpart needs an overhaul of its exterior, too - so this is somewhat realistic
I think this aircraft deserves a much better exterior model. But you are right: most of the aircraft in FGFS has a nice looking exterior- but inside....Oh my god.
I did not meant the interior glas- here you are right. As an example the R44 - too much for my tasting at least....
But from outside it does look like on the SenecaII as there is no glas. But again: just for my taste.
Just to make clear: it is just my point of view, i accept that any other here will see it maybe different.
I just tried to use the new Rating system, so I used the mentioned aircraft just as an example- beside the mentioned things the system works pretty good, and I'm sure it will be helpfull for users like me!
