BETA 1 of the Long-EZ Project for Microsoft Flight Simulator is here!
BETA TEST ACCESS INSTRUCTIONS
ALL BETA TEST SLOTS ARE TAKEN - NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED...SORRY!
This is a very simple aircraft package intended for VFR operations only. The planes is easy to fly an accessible to simmers of any experience level.
BETA VERSION INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
Add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator are distributed as packages. Packages shall be placed in the "Community" folder. You will need to restart MSFS if the simulator was running when you have moved the files.
HOW TO REPORT BUGS:
The preferred way to report bugs is to add a comment to this post, specifying what is the experienced malfunction and when it happens. Pics are welcome.
Alternatively, an email is good to. Comments are preferred so that other users can see them.
It is not a race, so take your time. The simulation is quite complex, so it may take some time to get acquainted with the plane… I'd suggest you log at least a couple of hours before submitting any feedback.
Also, PLEASE, before posting a bug make sure it is not already in the list below.
Red - Higher priority: a severe bug that may hamper the usage of the aircraft
Yellow - Lower priority: definitely a defect, but not a high priority to solve it
Green - Problem solved, o mitigated to the level that it is acceptable.Dark Green - Problem solved or mitigated before the Beta 1 release.
Blue - Comment, nice-to-have features or suggestions
