About This File
FS2004 "Better Idea" Ford Trimotor. This is a redo, "Better Idea", of the default Ford Trimotor. The new modifications include a very crude but effective alt and hdg hold controlled from each of the three new 2D panels. Flight dynamics adjusted to match original manufacturer instruction manual. Electrical and fuel systems have been redone to meet the standards of manufacture. One of the included panels is radio range ready. All three panels have period instruments like drift meter, bubble sextant, even a dual ADF installed. The sound file has been improved. The kneeboard displays the charts and maps needed to navigate the US and Canadian Civil Airways. That will require the RR40.ZIP scenery installed and activated. Populates the aircraft list as a Ford just like the default plane and uses the default textures. It will not overwrite your default model. Special repaint instructions included. By Austin Davis, with a lot of help from friends.
