So what happened to the Aircraft workshop?

  • Trying to help someone having difficulty with the dr400 and decided to retest the steps to extract it, only to find that the Aircraft workshop seems to be missing from the latest sdk download?

  • The aircraft workshop is missing from the sdk tools, so the instructions are useless at that point. Cant extract the DR400 if it's simply not there.

  • Ok, thanks.

  • Indeed, after eagerly downloading the SDK a few hours ago, anticipating that I would soon be flying the dr400, and fruitlessly trying to follow the various SDK instructions, I discovered that there was no "aircraft_workshop." Nada. Nyet. Did a search on my hard drive. Still nothing. Then I went to the forum, and discovered HiFlyer's wonderful and timely post!


    And then I read the above post from Admin: "The aircraft SDK will be published again, once the Q400 is out as there are some small changes that would prevent the DR400 from working."


    I just have to ask Admin, exactly when and how are you going to tell the rest of us about this? Or take down the links to the flawed SDK to prevent other sorry users from wasting their time? And why is it that we have to blindly ask what is wrong for problems that are clearly by design? I understand the problem and will greatly appreciate the solution, but IPACS has got to stop leaving us in the dark!
