      I like their improvements very much. They did a lot to spruce this model up. It hand flies much better on manual landings too.

      It would be helpful if developers could date their updates.

      It's all very well using the tag 'v1.3 SP3' but it doesn't mean much to this buyer who purchased the QW757 three weeks ago. Now I have to hunt around to find out if I already have this version. Maybe I have SP2 - I can't remember.

      It's good that we get updates, of course it is. But please, developers, and reviewers, put dates on them.

      No complaints here! Way to go, Quality Wings! You are a fantastic developer. When many devs just quit on a product after a year, you all just keep on improving and serving your customer base. I think that's incredibly commendable and I will continue to purchase from you, especially since you take care of your customers after the sale. Way to go!
