Good!
I must say I like it, depsite the cockpit, or lack of clickableness therof. Everything works as expected except for thrust reversers, which I'm not sure enough.

Is there any chance I could look at systems? Or even 3D -- I'd love to help.

Lego: If you help wit 3D, I will build a cockpit, the ones thing I cannot do it 3D model.
What I do: Flight Dynamics, Systems, Canvas Displays, Autoflight, FlyByWire, Cockpit Animations
Aircraft I currently develop: MD-11 (Mainly), A320-family, MD-80, Contribs in a few others

Hmm... well, I can... sort of... after hours and hours and hours of trial and error. Plus, the exterior is not too bad -- the interior needs work.

Systems are not created, so many switches are not clickable now. Reversers... Yeah, I need to look there. Also there is known bug when you push TOGA button on final approach - it doesn't apply throttles, it crashes autopilot system.

Indeed -- I noticed that TOGA on final. Only, well, it sort of worked; I didn't crash. Until I stalled from nose high...

I must say that I really like the FDM, but I feel the elevator is a little too sensitive. Should the bird not be more heavy on the controls?

It really even oscillates from not so big deflections in pitch. And this is not final version of FDM, so development will be continued, when I will have more free time. The problem of feeling airplane in simulator is that we use joystick with little travel and small spring force (or even mouse!). In reality it is much easier to control the airplane, when you feel force on the yoke. You don't think about travel, only force and aircraft reaction.

Nice, I think though you can add the switches, but don't make them do anything until you can, that is fine I think.

Willing to contribute to modeling various knobs and instruments in the cockpit as well. Please provide specifics :)

Specifics... For just placement you could use photos of cockpit. If you need dimensions of switches, knobs, etc., I can measure it in 737-800 Full Flight Simulator, this is my workplace.

Thanks for the offer, can you provide a "straight on" photo of the autobrake panel (try not to take the picture at an angle in order to prevent distortion), and these two (top down):

PM me, thanks.
