Hello,
Today I have separated the interiors producing the interior.ac file, now fully UVmapped, the texture I called interior.jpg, and the associated interior.xml file. The panel is still to be modeled. The instruments on board are still not present. I updated the folder into my Drive if you want to take a look.

The panel should have one of these two configurations

Testing Liveries Menu. Interior shape visualization almost finalized. The plane hasn't Instruments yet nor a panel too. Added a White & Blue Texture for testing purposes.

Thanks to everyone who is testing my new Extra EA 300. For those who received the link to my Drive, here is a new livery with some small improvements.

In fact my Extra EA 300 is a very difficult beast to tame. Takin suggestions by Raptor I did a change into the YASim file:

Code: Select all
<approach speed="62" aoa="10" fuel="0.2">


Now you'll be able to land it safely. Thanks Raptor.

Just for fun, I'm practicing with my new personal livery. Does anyone recognize the logo?

The support points of the Extra EA300 are now in a slighty better position. Now the plane don't sunk anymore into the ground. Just a little bit... :D

I have to say, this Aircraft looks quite similar to the RV-7! Is it as close as I think it is?
