Grumman AA-5B Tiger Project. A repaint of Tim Conrad's Grumman AA-5B Tiger for Flight Simulator X. This aircraft is created for projects with blank BMP textures and easy to follow instructions, making this a good starting point for any Grumman AA-5B Tiger project. Textures and by Mark Rooks of RSDG.

Grumman AA-5B Tiger Project in flight.

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 with some custom gauges. Includes extra FSX files to ease porting over to FSX.

1)After downloading the zip, locate it, and extract the file to a temp folder.

2)Copy the folder AA-5B over to your FS/FSX aircraft folder

3) Open the gauges folder, and copy the
AA-5B.cab gauge files into your FS9/FSX Gauges Folder. Also copy the effects files that are also in the gauges folder over to your FS9/FSX Effects folder.

4) During this installation, you may be asked to overwrite some files. This may be due to you already having some of my planes installed. Overwrite or not, choice is yours.

5) Double check everything before e-mailing me! 99% of problems can be solved this way:-) Since you are reading this, you are way ahead of the dimwits who don't bother to read readme files!:-p

6) You will see some extra files with _FSX in the names. These are used for porting the plane over to FSX, if you have it. I only tested the AA-5B breifly in FSX, so I can't promise everthing will work as planned.;) Just replace the FS9 files with these FSX files. Copy the extra300.gau file from your FS9 gauges folder to your FSX gauges folder, if you own both sims. Otherwise you will have to do some panel editing.

See steps 1 to 6 above:)

Another AA-5B model and paint will come soon. The R-L owner has to get her back together!
The dog on the treatbox is a tribute to Ben the "Benpuppy" who passed away in July 2006. I miss you Ben!

Results with your Computer and Sim Settings may vary.

This model was built to the best of my skills, knowledge, and simply to my own tastes and standards.
If something is "missing", or "wrong", oh well, you got it for a good price:-) For a one-man shop, I think I do pretty well:-p

As for repaints, new versions, etc. I have no idea if, when, or what. So please, no "placing orders".
These files shouldn't harm your computer, but I accept no responsability for their use and effect.
Play with it,do repaints, give to friends or enemies(SEE BELOW), but do not make money off of it without my express approval. This also goes for any other peoples' files in this release.

Also,if you want to re-post the plane, or its repaints, on your site, or another site, please ask me first:) I usually say yes, unless my plane been too corrupted or hacked by you or others.

Good Luck,
