    Hey guys the latest update on the manuals:
    The Freewing Rebel, Super Scorpion, Super Hornet, F9F Panther, T-45 Goshawk and A-6 Intruder are now revised and available on the website, the Freewing Me 262 and the F8 Crusader should be available shortly.
    As for the F4 Phantom, it should be up soon as well as I told the guys I did it for free, didn't want them giving away free batteries !!:)

    BTW, I had a look at the F4 manual and cleaned it up as there were some 'interesting' things in there.
    The new manuals are slightly better, but not great.
    As a tip of the hat to all the Vietnam veterans, I told the guys that this rewrite was on me. In other words, Free!

    Thanks guys!
    BTW, if anyone sees something that needs correcting in the manuals that have been revised, either PM me or leave me a message on this thread, I'll correct it immediately and send it off to Aros to be reposted.
    Even though these manuals are proof read, we all can miss something, so....
    Feedback is very important as I want to make sure they are right!

    You'll notice that the list at the top of this thread has just changed!

    All the newly rewritten manuals have just been posted, thank to James and Todd!!
    Hope you enjoy them, more to come....
    Right now we're enjoying 50 degrees + here in Wyoming, so I might actually get some flying in this weekend, in the middle of December!!
    Go Figure....

    Just wrapped up the Avanti manual!
    As a FYI, doing these manuals isn't just a matter of adjusting the text. Some text isn't adjustable, so you have to go into the Microsoft Paint Program and actually paint it out!
    About 90% of the black and Grey file tabs in most manuals have to be extended in Paint as well, then there's all the various fonts to keep track of....well, you get the idea and why it usually takes around 8 hours per manual.
    Oh yeah, deciphering what exactly they're trying to say is a real challenge some times!
