An absolute delight to fly. Very well modeled. Ideal for those times when you want to get a quick half-hour of sim-time and don't want to spend it all getting the systems up and running. Long flights should be fun too in VFR.
However, a fuel gauge would be nice. I believe  the gauges should be in mounted where the wing roots join the cockpit, just ahead of the radio or electrical panels.

The developer posted this over at Sim Outhouse - a patch is on the way.

You'll be wondering where the fuel gauges are. So did I. I've now found them. They are buried in the wingroot match ribs. So a quick fix patch is on the way with two shiny new mechanical float gauges so you can put your dipsticks away.Engel016

I'm also enjoying this but even after flying for 2 hours I just I can't get the timing right for Shift E + 2, 3,4 etc to open the observer door or windows - however long or short the pause between the Shift E and the number, all I can open is the main door. Maddening! Still love it though Smile.

Thanks for the info.
It's really fun to fly, currently trying to get in, and out, of smaller and smaller spaces.
Took a flight over London and landed at Lord's Cricket Ground. Try that in real life and you would end up in the Tower of London.

Anyone notice the red glow on the lower left fuselage?  Anyone know how to get rid of it?
