Nice! just got a 970 and installed it. I love it. on an unrelated note, is there a way to have two fuel tanks on a plane in Realflight?

WOW ! I never tried running both sims simultaneously, neat stress test.

How is the F105D build progressing, I am looking forward to yet another great scale model from your "aviation production company" you never dissappoint.

I am not pushing the limit very hard with the f-105. Both EA's is on track for the old limit 27000 with what I have planned to be added. The B-52 on the other hand it at 60000+ right now and may be subjected to some trimming before release and is planned to hit 130k+ at release.

HaHa,... yah, I was just trying to save some keystrokes, I thought Lman had a nice ring to it, so I gave it a shot. I was wondering if you`d say something .....In the future, I`ll use Lego if I`m feeling lazy on the keystrokes..
