NOTICE: Using a Beta or Release Candidate (RC) X-Plane version? Please don't contact us about model problems, unless you are just passing along the information. Betas and RC don't have all of their features enabled and are, by definition, buggy so we can not make any changes until the final, stable XP version is released. If you have the disc space, we strongly recommend that you keep at least one recent stable version of X-Plane installed in addition to any such Betas.
