    ================================================== ========
    Flight controls are as expected. Switch assignments:

    Knob - Flaps
    Top Right - Landing Gear
    Top Left - Torpedo Drop
    3-Position - Down = Canopy closed, wings unfolded.
    .............Center = Canopy open, wings unfolded.
    .............Up = Canopy open, wings folded.

    Elevator forward = Apply brakes

    ================================================== ========
    The rear gunner's canopy and MG configuration can be changed in the editor by changing "Engine to Show" in the Engine component:

    4STROKE = Canopy open, twin .30cal MG mount (correct for VT-8 CS)
    2STROKE = Canopy open, single .30cal MG mount (correct for Yellow Wings CS)
    ELECTRIC = Canopy closed, MG stowed in bin (for either CS)
    NONE = Canopy and MG will NOT be shown

    Note - make sure "Display Advanced Properties" is selected in the Editor options!

    11-29-201110knifeedge63Great Job!
    06-05-201010flmmanA beauty indeed! I rated for workmanship, not for any software glitches that may have been encountered
    06-06-201010ven2sI allowed the DDS alot of time to download, no rushing. It loaded well and I have had no crashing in my G5. Suggest those of you having troubles reload the EA. It flies great and even the torpedoe tracks well! Very nice job!!
