Flight Simulator X: A request for source material...

I've posted this in one of the main Flight Sim user forums (Avsim), but haven't seen an answer. Any takers here?

Anybody have any images of a ski retraction lever?

Preferably from a Maule, but anything from a single prop'd be helpful.

Thank you so much in advance,


  • I did some searching, no luck. But I did find these sites, and the folks in their forums might be able to help:

    Also discovered that the term wheel-ski is more specific. Hope that might help...


  • Jason,

    There is a *GREAT* Maule M-7 out there that you should check out. It's freeware. Here is the contents of the README.TXT file. It has contact info and info on where to find the file itself. Good flight model too!

  • Hi Jason, I found something here..

  • Jason,

    we retract the skis with a simple switch that actuates the electric motor for hydraulically retracting/lowering the skis. No lever anywhere ;-)

    And.. ummm.... not to be cheeky, but there ARE other sites than Avsim around too, don't ya know !? ;-)

    Kind regards,

  • Francois...

    Yes. I know. :)

    I also know how hard t can be to monitor even a couple posts (which is what I had up on Avsim), which is why I did it here...
