Um… these questions “is FDS ignoring what the community needs most at the moment?” can be answered only by the FDS team. This can never end if the voters doesn’t get a valid response back or if the supporters of FDS try to convince them. It’s unfair to tell only one side to calm down and maybe someone should get the team answering if this needs to be solved today.
And, just a quick thought occurred to me… isn’t it easier to add something that is so similar, like everybody’s mentioned here, with a plane that already exists in the simulator? Maybe relatively easier than making something all new, isn’t it?
