Milton, I have a small question for you regarding the FS9 version of the Howard. What is needed to remove the rudder control on the tail wheel? I remember that the original one you did had a freewheeling tail wheel and when the differential brakes were applied, the tail wheel turned. As a result you could litterally turn on a dime if you had the brake control. I don't remember what was on the original that allowed it to do that. You see recently, I bought a set of the CH pedal that have the toe tip differential brakes. I'd like to reset it to the way it was originally.

In the aircraft.cfg contact point.0, change the deflection back to 180 degrees. The original and alternate were both there as examples.

Also keep in mind that when you run the castoring tailwheel (180 in cfg) that the yoke locks the tailwheel position when pulling back a few degrees.

Also guys (and gals), I do believe I have larger versions of these pictures somewhere if you are interested.

Well, hmmmph! I have not yet found the larger pics and I believe I also lost about 400 reference pics we took for the project. I may have them on a backup CD somewhere.

Meanwhile, I found this picture Scott took while in flight to KOSH at various altitudes. This one at FL180 to capture the gauge readouts.

And this one in the hangar after the ECU, panel and some gauges were upgraded.
