What kind of problems did you see? I've sent a lot of changes to Erik about two weeks ago. That update fixed a lot of stuff, including the autopilot, which makes it a lot easier to fly. The CVS version is a little heavy during take-off. I.e. doesn't start pitching up until at about 200 kts, but we're working on that. Please let me know what problems you had, and I can see what I can fix.
Also, note that including the MD-11 at this stage is not my first preference: that would be including the new traffic manager and AIFlightplan code, and use *only* the 737 traffic.
On the other hand: The MD-11 *is* the first aircraft that has multi livery support, which is a kinda neat feature. :-)

Hmmm, I hadn't included the MD11 because when I looked at it (maybe two
weeks ago) it still seemed very much "under development". And there are
big problems with the flight dynamics making it virtually unflyable. I
could include it in the base, but it would be really great if someone
could work on the flight dynamics enough so that it is at least
Is the MD-11 a JSBSim aircraft? I thought it was, but I don't recall it being in our CVS ... is the AI aircraft its own FDM?
