The DreamFleet Bonanza A36 includes a nice, though fictional, seaplane version. For something less modern, there's the AlphaSim Arado Ar-196; or the simTech Beech 17D, which includes wheel and float versions with numerous liveries (now freeware). If you'd like something larger, the fictional "Stratojet Albatross" is a modern jet powered flying boat (freeware, with several liveries and full VC). The PZL-104 "Wicked Wilga" is a STOL utility plane that includes a nice amphibious version (also freeware).
I actually have the Albatross, but isn't that a fictional aircraft.
The others are closer to what I'm looking for. Can you post a download link?
Also, anyone know of any others? Thanks.
I can recommend these, all currently installed in my FS9:

If you enjoy vintage aircraft, Jens Kristensen has created many early flying boats such as the Short Singapore and Kent. There is a nice Do-26, complete with tilting engines, though the panel is a but dated. And I must mention the payware MAAM DC-3, which offers a floatplane version of this aircraft.
Thank you so much!
That list is very helpful.
Before a lot of troubleshooting, I would reinstall. One step at a time and be sure each works before proceeding; double check the update instructions, noting whether to move folders or just files. Make sure the base install works fine, then add just the update and check it in the sim. Then the avionics and check again.
Was it the 2D panel or VC that went black? The entire screen or just the panel?
No sound in spot view means the wav files for external sounds are either corrupt, missing, or not being called by the sound.cfg file. (After the base install, if the sounds are good, right click on the sound folder and select "add to sound.zip". If the sound gets fouled up later, right click on sound.zip - in the Maule root folder - and select "extract here", allow overwrites, and you're back to the original sounds.)
Yeah, I fixed it. I moved the folders instead of the files inside, so the folders were incomplete.
All I had to do was add the files back and it works now. Thanks.
