Yes Dieter, I noticed that there are a few areas that need a bit of work. Mostly navigation related. And I agree that it looks like they won't be fixed by by Sibwings. It's a shame. He has a great product that could be perfect if he'd only take a little time to get it right.

I personally don't use the BirdDogs' navigation anyway, I use it strictly for VFR and sight seeing. The plus's for me are the fantastic views. Look anywhere and you can see out of a window, just great. The flight dynamics feel good to me, but then I've never flown real world. It's an ideal plane if you want fly hands on. If you want to kick back, set autopilot, and go for lunch, fly a Carenado  ;D Or anything else of that genre.

Definitely not a bush plane but it's fun to fly.  Looks great, too.  One of them even made it to Alaska, where it unfortunately crashed in 1944.  May still be in storage in Anchorage, for all I know.  This one's from FS9.  Can't wait to fly it once I get FSX running.

hi folks,

I'm new here but not new to Misty Moorings. I used to fly here quite a bit during the fs2004 days.
These days I mostly fly in my Dornier Seastar prototype (see my avatar). It's a lovely plane with quite some power and STOL capabilities!

Cheers
Andi

Welcome Andi!  I also like this aircraft and fly it in FSX.  Not sure if we have the exact same model but it's great for exploring the lakes and bays of Misty.

All the above but usually the Lionheart Qwest Kodiak. It comes in land and float versions. By far my favorite payware addon. Lee

I fly mostly............

         SIBWINGS     BIRD-DOG (Amphib)
         SIBWINGS     BIRD-DOG (Ski)
         REALAIR        SCOUT      (Amphib)
         REALAIR        SCOUT      (Tundra)

Both these aircraft have their problems. But with a little tweaking here and there and a little help from this community these two are my favorite bush planes.

Hi Rob,

   Just the Auto pilot and the HDG direction dial.
