how can i get the thunder bird 2 to fly and lower the landing gear i use my saitek x52 pro and and when i push forward on the handle it moves forward

Levi Sat, 01 Jul 2017 06:40:33 GMT

how do i lower the legs and the cargo/container thingey

ChrisWed, 26 Aug 2015 08:22:24 GMT

While i could not get the drill to work, everything else did. It was everything i expected it to be and more. Was even more pleasantly surprised that the thunderbird jingles played when i opened the cargo bay.

Top job

Great program, it all works perfect, but i cant get the aircraft to take off or land vertically.
