First introduced in 1974, the AA-5 series were unique in their bonded honeycomb airframes, producing a simple, smooth, and strong structure. With a sliding canopy and quick controls, the AA-5 were a breed apart. The later AA-5B series had more powerful engines, giving a needed boost in performance. This SF9/FSX model is painted in a real world paint scheme, and has full ani's and VC (virtual cockpit) with some custom gauges. Includes extra FSX files to ease porting over to FSX. Tim Conrad.

The "read me" comments concerning the gauges files, which have their own file folder, are not specific enough for a novice to be able to separate. the gauges from the effects. The instructions are to copy these into two separate subfiles, i.e., gauges and effects. I understand that the simulation is created by an outside source, but the "read me" just does not provide enough information to make the simulation work as designed.

I would be happy to sign up for your higher-level membership, but in the past, when I was paying the fee, I asked for help and got no response.

Your help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Tim Conrad does excellent work. I have enjoyed many of his planes. No issues with gauges, they work fine! BZ to Piglet.

Agree that if the gauges worked this would be great. Sounds from the notes that the designer doesn't normally use FSX...

If the gauges worked it would be perfect.

I fly with trackIR so a nicely done VC makes or breaks an aircraft right away for me. This plane has a very nice VC. The pin-up on the dash is a nice touch!
