Hello, and Thank You for downloading my virtual rendition of the Taylor Mini-Imp. The Imp appeared in 1972, and was designed by Molt Taylor. This model is a later -C version using a 100HP Continental 0-200 engine.


  1. After unzipping the file move the "Mini-Imp" folder into your \SimObjects\Airplanes folder.
  2. Move the font file to the FSX Fonts folder.

When Flying:

  • The plane is set up for differential braking. If you wish to change it to direct steering substitute this line for the original in the contact points section of the aircraft.cfg file: point.0= 1, 5.727, 0.000, -3.395, 1500, 0, 0.433, 56.000, 0.050, 2.500, 0.900, 1.500, 1.500, 0.
  • From the external view the control stick does not move.
  • Clicking the button on the pilot's control stick opens/closes the ATC window.
  • Clicking the canopy latch (right side near canopy handle) opens & closes the canopy.
  • "Shift + 1" brings up a pop-up that allows you to control the visibility of the pilot, the inner canopy reflections, and the tire chocks. The chocks are tied to the parking brake.
  • The plane is daytime only. There is no lighting on it.
  • The GPS knobs use the mouse wheel for adjustment. Click on the end of the inner knob to push it in.
  • The pitch trim can be set in the VC by clicking on the trim position indicator located on the left console.

Special Thanks:

  • To Larry "Tako Kichi" Green for contributing the nice set of antennas!
  • The "regulars" on the SOH Teampeak channel for testing my work.
