1. Open the aircraft folder and copy the dh80am folder to your FS9/Aircraft folder.

2. Open the effects folder and copy the two effects to your FS9/effects folder.

The following must be read to ensure understanding of some of the features and options.


I changed the manufacturer to de Havilland Melrose to differentiate the race setup from the standard setup.


Wing Folding for storage requires the wing fold command setup in the FS9/Display/Assignments.

Yoke Appear/Disappear: Slash key (spoilers).

Open window on ground: Occurs with Parking Brake application.

Flaps: The dh.80a had no flaps but used airbrakes (activated by the flap key) providing drag by turning the upper and lower gear struts crossways to the wind.


1. You have two panels to select from, one silver-ish, one darker. You can change the aircraft.cfg to select the one you like. In the [fltsim.0] section, you will find the following:


Simply comment out the one you do NOT want with two slashes as shown.

2. You have three prop meshes to select from in the texture folder. They are named:

propmesh (This is the active one)
propmesh_lighter (This one will be lighter)
propmesh_darker (This one will be darker)

Simply rename the active one to propmesh.medium, then rename your choice to propmesh.

3. I provided many tank options in the aircraft.cfg for mileage ranges stated. Simply comment out the default and uncomment out the desired tankage.

4. The aircraft.cfg contact points section has two tailwheel setups; one castering, one steerable (default). Select the one you wish and comment out the other.

I hope this helps.
