    Default Cessna 185, a great workhorse

    I've had this download awhile now, don't fly it often enough. I have rearranged the panel to my liking, so that is done! Only issues I have now is not seeing any Plexiglass for the windows. This was an original download by J R Lucariny, and an update by Bob Chicilo. It's a nice flying aircraft, if you can overlook the lack of glass. Some day, maybe somebody will come along with a fix, but until then, I'll keep flying what I've got!

    Not STOL but a tough bush plane for sure. -- Bob

    Looking good Rick! The 185 has been around a long time. Nice panel work.

    Tlhanks David and Bob!

    David - Yes, on the panel, thanks! I did a lot of re-arranging of what was there. There was no provision for prop pitch, had to add that and a Manifold Pressure gauge to go with it! I added the cowl flap gauge, but it's not working, but I can live with that! The panel is definitely better for a 185 and I am happy with the changes!

    The Cessna 185 has proven its worth many times over - a solid and reliable bird. Nice work with the panel rework Rick.

    Thanks Larry! My first airplane ride at age 5 was in my Grandfather's Cessna 180. This aircraft is very close to what he had and what we had growing up!
    It is a very nice aircraft with plenty of power to do the job you need done!

    I will have to second Larry's comment. The panel update looks very functional. Jim

    Thanks Jim! Yes, I am very pleased with the changes made! I'm never totally satisfied, as I have already made a couple changes since the above pic was submitted. Not any drastic changes, but some changes that I feel better about

    Rick !
