        Thank you AI is my slef programmed, still unfinished. Been programming since Christmas :P
        Exam is tomorrow and I'm crapping my pants. Calculus is freaking hard and hopefully I will pass this course. I might even pull an all niter just to study the stuff

          Great shots as always. Looks like you and I are in the same boat. Math B exam tomorrow, which covers the second 1.5 years of high school math. I know the stuff pretty well, im worried about stupid mistakes. I came here to cool my head.

          Back to FS, what model is that?

              Back from my exam and damn it was hard. 3.5 hours, 14 pages. Hopefully I did well.
              The model is by PMDG, the best 737NG available (excpet for non flexing wings )

                Why don't you using POSKY B737-700/800? They have flex wings. Nice model!

                The problem is PMDG what I don't really like is? The flaps are wrong design The real life flaps doesn't have flat!!! They don't have create design properly flaps. POSKY is accurate almost perfect design flaps.

                Flat flaps look at this:

                POSKY flaps look at this:

                  Yeah mine went smoothly as well. The last problem was actually a vectoring problem that had to do with crosswinds. If a Jet is flying at 526 MPH and is hit by a crosswind of 50 degrees at a 47 degree angle, what is the resultant speed?
                  544 MPH approximately

                    Posky did a great model. I ahve to agree that flaps look kinda flat on PMDG, however what I do not like about POSKy is that it has some transparent parts. Also switching to POSKY or even merging it with PMDG panel will mean loosing the great vc and vcabin. So I guess I will stay with PMDG.
                    Last weekend I also did a flight from Amsterdam to St. Maarten (Part II) on KLM 747-400. I might post shots later. Today I'll be flying from SXM to Toronto.

                    As for exam I remember doing vectors in physics last year. That was actualyl fun. You have to draw all that diagrams and stuff. What I had on mine was pretty much limits, derivatives, slopes of tangents and optimization
