Hi all, and thanks for being there. One gets so tired of flying the set- and forget, does-everything-automaticly-til-it-remembers-YOU-forgot-something-important type planes. The oldies I watched in awe when I was a kid offer a real pilot more things to ;tinker' with and 'manage' to relive the boredom of long sector flights with passengers.........or not.
Thanks guys, I can fly 'em........but rubbish at building 'em!!
