Wow, talk about a small world. Has anyone besides me noticed anything familiar about the scenery Doc is flying over?
For the answer download my Kansas custom scenery (you won't see it in Terrasync) and fly over ElDorado lake heading north, about 3/4 the way across look back to the south.

Mid video you can see the Kansas Turnpike as it crosses the north end of the lake.

Later on in the video as the aircraft is heading back to Wichita (I presume) you can see the entire lake in the distance.

Thanks for sharing that, I really enjoyed it!

Gears are down in my flight because they wouldn't retract. Although in property browser the property /controls/gear/gear-down does answer to g and changes from true to false, the contact point adjusts somewhat. But the gear do not show an animation of them retracting. Also the reciprocal gear down key does not change the property /controls/gear/gear-down to true.

Also JSBSim version crashes FlightGear.

Thank you, that worked.

There are some real control issues with the YASim version. You can't control aileron at the same time as you ext/ret flaps or gears (at least with a mouse).
It is a really cool aircraft but needs some tlc.
