Has anyone else really added/changed up an aircraft? I know I've really changed up a few of my GA aircraft. My baron 58 has new sounds, new panel, several new paint jobs, and of course the added tweak to the cfg for a turbo charged engine. I've also added another type of GPS as well as another radio stack. Also, I've put a CD player in the thing to, so my trips will be a little more enjoyable. My Mooney has been modified somewhat too, but basically it went through the same changes as the Baron. I got some gauges the other day that will give me a readout of what my GS is, but I figure that's fairly unrealistic considering you really have no way to knowing exactly what your GS is. Anyone else care to give their modified a/c?

I've changed the C172s GPS, but almost everyone has!

As far as groundspeed readout, any decent GPS with the push of a button can give you a readout of groundspeed in a real airplane so don't feel it's not realistic.

Glad to see I've reached someone :7

hmm..:-) I thought that was just a perk in the fs. I didn't know that real GPSs had them. Thanks for tellin' me! :-)

LAST EDITED ON Aug-10-02 AT 01:33AM (EDT)[p]I really clicked with you on that one. I've noticed that it's like everyone's looking for that one "airplane". I have a few 3rd party a/c in my hanger, but I mainly stick with the defaults besides the Archer & the 421. Once I started getting used to how fs sites work, I was able to really look for specific things to add to the planes. Really, that's half the fun for me. Sometimes I get things to work, sometimes I don't. I'm no guru when it comes to panel editing, or repaints, so I can't exactly get things like I want 'em sometimes. I can't thank the creators of all the freeware enough.
