Isn't Charlie Taylor also the name of the former dictator of Liberia?

Oh hey, even WOT members are aware that FlightProSim uses stolen code and images from an open-source project.

WOT members? What is WOT?

Am I right that my site has moved nicely up in google search?

Web of Trust. It's an internet security thing for Firefox and Internet Explorer (and Opera via User JavaScript) that tells you which sites to avoid and which sites are safe. Basically it keeps you safe online. Guess I should have stated this in that original post :wink:

In fact a frustrated buyer made me put up the site:

I thought Charlie Taylor was the aviation hero. Maybe make a second page called "Charlie Taylor (FPS Creator)"

Oh, and it wouldn't hurt to redirect searches like "scammer" to him.

Well, this sounds strange, there's another simulation, building upon FlightGear but charging money for it?

Hm, that's one thing about openSource-Software, you can edit and change and do-whatever-you-want-to-do with it. I haven't read the license but it'll have to stay free, or am I mistaken?

Someone making money with the work of others - tstststs...

Now, how 'bout this quote from their site?


FPS Site wrote:FlightProSim is proudly part of the Open Source community and is based on the world renown FlightGear project. This means FlightProSim is in constant development and keeps getting better and better.

So, they actually mentioned that it's based on FlightGear's source...?

Well, it is known that he doesn't use the Git (formerly CVS) version of FlightGear, and that is updated frequently, so maybe the "FlightProSim is in constant development" part is a lie?

Sorry to be late to the subject, but this just disgusts me. I created my aircraft specifically so others wouldn't need to pay for them. Give to others freely without expecting anything in return; that's what being a good person is all about. Unless of course what you're giving has been taken by some prick to be sold to others. If I find my X-29a or X-02 on that list of included aircraft on the FPS site i'mma be pissed. :evil: Just wonder if any other devs feel the same way.
