I agree with all the positive comments. I also appreciate the explanations in the Ctrl-c view. :D

Nice. This is how C172p should look like inside. Currently it looks 10 years old.
Hey, maybe this interior can be copied to c172p?

horacio make some time ago a great improvement to the cessna 172p, (here you can see), but, for some reason what i can't understand why (they say what they are developing the cessna cabin, but i see the same cabin since the 1.9.1 version), the autors of the cessna reject his great work, like the improvement to the bo-105...

@gustavo:
You didn't understand me. I meant that it needed updates to the cockpit NOT instrument board. Instrument board is fine. This is what I mean.

For a good example of a similar but polished aircraft look at rallye-MS893.

Cockpit of 337 Skymaster looks very similar as c172p should look.

Despite some animation details still yet, we make now available the new Cessna 337G Skymaster. The advances are noticeable, like was seen on our last screenshots. The advances was made not only on exterior, but on interior, engines, FDM, Nasal, instruments, etc.

Like i told in previous messages, our intention is all -or almost all- buttons & knobs works with the mouse, to do a more realistic piloting. For now, there are a lot of them which works with left, central buttons and mouse wheel.

Please, excuse me for not participate more often here (i believe it's very great) but my english are virtually non-existent, based only on Google translator. So, all texts i write here are translated by mi friend and development partner Pavel "El Flauta".

No more waiting here, there are the download link:

Cessna 337G ViveFG

I hope you will like and enjoy it.

I'm loving it! Please let me know if I can put it in Git; would be an honour!
You do need to check the engine or drag though. It's quite hard to slow her down. In leveled flight, with engine at idle she doesn't slow down at all.
