@AndersG, yep that's it, the Berfalke II :D
and @wlbragg, WW2 isn't *that* far away as it's from the mid 50s

I had the Cub take the Bergfalke out for a test flight over the lake and had fun.

The only thing I noticed is the tell-tail didn't appear to show in the front seat view.

From the screenshots it appears as if it is well inside the canopy instead of right in front of it. In particular due to being aft of the of the instrument panel.

LS4 and LS8 seems to use ASK13 sounds. If ASK is not installed, there is no sound. Quick fix is to edit Sounds/sound.xml file so that replace sound file paths to ask13... with ./ (in Linux).

i'm guessing the LS4 and LS8 are not in FGAddon?

i kinda figured it would get in there eventually... i just posted to the dev list about some other craft that have similar inter-dependencies on the ASK13... two or three are simply sound file references but one of them is also something about dual-control and processing the ASK-13.xml... those with the sound file references appear to have the sound files copied to their tree but the sound.xml files still point to the ASK13... if you read the dev list, you may have already seen my post :)

i didn't realize that you did that... i didn't mean to ""call you out"" about it... my apologies...

i know that someone (eric or erik?) cleaned up a bunch of craft in the past that were inter-dependent like this... i can understand why this would be done to avoid duplicate files in numerous craft... i think one thing that has been done in some cases where it can be done, is to place the shared files or code in fgdata so that all craft that need it can use it from one place... i don't know if these files and code are suitable for that, though...

The Rolladen-Schneider LS4 is now on SVN, all problems should be fixed (other than the FDM, which is still not really good, especially during winch launch)
