A few minor updates:

Diamond-Da42-VI: Small fixes to the internal shadows and default views.
Tecnam-P2006T: Changed the color of the interior walls for better contrast with the rest of the objects, changed default views, increased the volume of some of the sounds.
Falcon-50: Removed the engines smoke effects because they looked bad and tweaked some other effects, also changed chase distance.

Maybe some other stuff, I tweaked several planes today so I don't remember them all.

I see a lot of airplanes on this forum that I don't see in the newest release of FlightGear. I love the Diamond, but mine is lacking in radio stack, DME, HSI, and other essential instruments. Is that a way to upgrade? Thanks in advance.

FlightGear. org should have the latest updated aircraft official and un-official hangars.

On the Diamond DA 42, is it possible to add working on-panel autopilot controls?

And if people making changes in their corner would first contact the author/maintainer of the models in question, the improvements would simply be available on FGAddon.

Concerning the Da 42, it's fun to modify the FDM to have contra rotating propellers, but I'm sorry, if we look at a detail picture the propellers rotate in the same direction.

wow! were you really that far behind in this topic? the post concerning that change was made in Nov 2017 :shock:

i've quoted it here so it is easy to find and click on the link to the original...

Made the propellers contra rotating both in yasim and in animation.
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Yeah, I know, but that's not a reason. There are so many aberrations on this forum that I rarely come. I prefer to continue to improve and update my 300 models as I have been doing since 2006.

The same goes for the Tecnam P2006T.

If those are contra-rotating propellers, I'm the president of the United States.

I'm tired of seeing people modifying my models without warning me and especially doing absolutely anything.
