Test Pilot's comments on this aircraft:

(JoyStick helpful - though not essential)
To enable hover, aircraft has rotatable thrust.
Press 0 to rotate the engine fully to "HOVER SET" or 0 degrees.
Press 9 to rotate the engine 10 deg down at a time.(and to reverse in hover ~ 110/120 deg.)
Press 8 to rotate the engine 10 deg up at a time.(and for forward thrust in hover ~ 90 -> 10 deg.)
Attitude control is via keypad 4< 6> and 8^ ¬2 or JoyStick.
(Press Ctrl together to attenate effect)
For fine alignment in hover, press 6 & 4 together on NUMPAD for forward; 9  for Backward; 1 or 3 Left/Right (KILLROT on) .
Press CTRL and +/- on the numpad for Thrust.
Use Insert and Delete to set Trim (except in ALTHOLD mode.) Trim has no effect in Hover.

As Test Pilot describes, he has the capability to "look through the aircraft"!
Press V to toggle "visor" view simulation in VC mode. (Interesting effects if you have TrackIR.)
[Actually, if we could find a way of disabling HUD cancellation when panning, this could be simulated much better]                                 MartinS you must know :)
CameraMFD & NotesMFD enhance immersion and usability.
My Heathrow addon required for Heathrow Scenarios :)
Hope you enjoy the gear suspension - it gives some unpredictable effects at times! ( and was a nightmare to code ;)
Grateful thanks (really) to Kev Shanow for the original craft and PennyBlack for the super new skins, (working with a very difficult original mesh).
These skins are in the Textures/JMW/ directory. Just un-zip the one of your choice to Orbiter root directory.
Happy VTOL !!
