Does anyone know how to get the "map" in <acronym title="STAF Argentina">FS</acronym> to display during a flight without the little airplane that indicates your position? I know how to hide the route, but with the plane itself still there, that only gives you half the fun of trying to navigate from ...

Just to clarify, when you turn on the autorudder like NAV20 said, you then set the X-Axis as your "ailerons axis" in the joystick assignments but it will actually control both.  Smile

Why are they certain that the aluminum debris came from the accident? Just looking at the size of the thing, it could have been there for years without anyone noticing. Or someone could have dinged the plane with an aluminum object and caused superficial damage.
