This Turbo Beaver is a Full Package for FSX.
Zip file is not backward compatible to FS9.

Install the DH2X_GDT.ZIP files per the Instructions Below.


Extract all files into the FSX MAIN Folder using WINZIP.

Make sure the " Use Folder Names " BOX is checked IN WINZIP.
New folders will be created and all files installed.

1. Navigate to the DH2X_GDT.ZIP file (I use the "My Computer Icon" on the Desk Top.

2. Double click with your mouse on the DH2X_GDT.ZIP file.

3. WINZIP should Open and show all the files inside the zip.

4. Press CTRL A and this will select all the files.

5. Click on Extract in the Main Tool Bar above. ( Make sure the "Use folder names" box is checked).

6. type in your path in the dialoge box....Mine is C:FSX (Yours may be different). Or Browse to your FSX Location…Default is C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator X.

7. Now Click on the Exract Button in the upper right. (If it askes to overwrite...Say YES to all).....Your Done.


* Open the Panel_Docs folder for information on operating this aircraft.

Although the groundhandling5 gauge doesn't use FSUIPC itself, if you have the unregistered version of FSUIPC V4.0.0 or V4.0.1 (the very first FSX versions) installed, you MUST upgrade to V4.0.2 or higher, otherwise the Pushback-turn will not work. If you haven't got a clue what FSUIPC is, just ignore this remark :-)

Due to differences in the Brakes implementation in FSX with respect to the use of Toebrakes pedals, activate (remove the "//" in front of the line) gauge03= ONLY when you use proportional toebrake pedals, like the CH Pro Pedals. Removing the "//" will force the Taxispeed gauge to use proportional Brake commands (like your pedals) instead of normal Brake commands.

* At startup click on the Alternate Panel Icon to establish Popup Window Priority.

* For Turbo Beaver Flight Data...See the DHC2_MK3W_Ref.txt file or press the "Check" Icon on the panel while in FSX.

* Use Shift E to open the Pax Doors.

* Use Shift E +2 to open the Pilot Doors & Cargo / Alaska Doors...Depending on the Model.

* Use the "I" key for Water or Jumper Effects...Depending on the Model. (Sequences may be different, depending on the model).

*To hear the Exit Door sounds....It has to be quiet in the cockpit. Do it before starting engine or after Engine Shutdown.

* The spinning propeller displays best when the prop pitch is reduced a little (CTRL F2 - 4 Times).

* To Raise your seat higher press SHIFT-ENTER.

* For Best Frame Rates...Keep Windows Closed.

* Use of Elevator trim is recommended in FSX...

* Important... If using AUTOSTART (CTRL E) .... Check to make sure the Generator is switched to ON in the lower IFR panel or VC.

* Included is a Water Rudder (Press Shift W) and there is a switch in the lower IFR panel.

* On takeoff...Water Rudder should be UP
