An update for the Grumman G-44 Widgeon (G44_20.ZIP) to correct the FDE's and the panel. The FDE's correct issues with the landing gear contact points, toe brake sensitivity and propeller parameters. The panel.cfg corrects a mis-sized GPS. By Michael Verlin.

Both versions had problems with the landing gear contact points. These were not so severe as to make them obviously un-flyable, but enough to be troublesome. I had erroneously assumed, since I wasn't able to alter the visual models, that these contact points did not require attention. This was not the case. In any event, they are now fixed.

Taxi issues on land. I have increased the sensitivity of the toe brakes to make the aircraft (both versions) easier to control when operating from land.

Propeller parameters. Again both aircraft have had adjustments performed to the propellers. I got copies of the Type Certificate Data sheet for the G-44, and applied the specifications of the prop manufacturer (Hartzell).

This is especially noticeable in the case of the radial powered version. It has been rendered much more controllable. There is so much power on hand for this version, that it will easily rotate when operating from a runway at 25 inches of manifold pressure. On water, this will vary according to conditions.

The GPS was not sized properly in the panel as uploaded. This has been fixed.
