FWIW: i've noticed that the wiper switches seem to be tied together, too... if i turn on the right, the left knob also moves and both wipers wipe... same if i use the left knob...

The wingflex bug should be fixed in fgaddon now.

Hasn't fixed it in my fgaddon, my wings still flex (sorry flap) like a demented pigeon that has gorged itself on the farmers wheat and cannot take off!!!! FYI: I'm running 2017.1.2

Does anyone still have the version that had a working VNAV, CDU, VSI...?

I remember the one distributed on Merlion's website had all that, but it seems to have since broken. It was a very impressive aircraft for its time :)

BTW the VNAV didn't actually work, it was just very simple logic following the route manager altitudes.

it0uchpods, I used a version that did work -- the problem is I can't find it. Perhaps it was only distributed to Merlion.

V12, that's what I'm using and it's mostly broken.

For me works. Now, I'm flying test route GLL-CPT-EBOS-LOWL-KUVEX-LZIB. But as wrote it0uchpods, it is very simple logic to follow vertical profile from route manager. It has something like Autogen profile, but again - support only basic functionality. All advanced functions are full of bugs, EFB and MCDU needs reset frequently.

Test flight ended almost ugly crash. All was good to autoland touchdown. When nose gear touch runway, AP started steep climb, plane almost stalled but antistall did its job in last moment very good. Then I switched AP / AT off, made U-turn and landed manualy. Too many bugs in this plane for daily use :(
