Hmmm...I'm not seeing anything besides the FedEx data in the shop. How can I change to USPS data being displayed? It says something about a pull-down menu to compare FedEx and USPS, but I'm not seeing it in Firefox 3 or IE7. Just looking for a comparison at the moment, as actual purchase would be after I already have the MD-11 for FS9 installed and working on my computer.Tim

Thanks for the update. Despite what I'd venture to call reasonable prices, it would be nice to have the PDF manuals included with the product as they have always been.Is that still the case, or is it different now due to the legal ramifications of the printing by another company?Cheers,KyleP.S:Before someone starts to complain:I used to run similar documents over to A Reputable Chain of [font color="purple"]Printing[/font][font color="FF3300"]Copying[/font] Store for copies at one of my previous jobs for a higher cost, with less durable binding.

Captains-I have just brought USPS shipping options online at our eCommerce site that are between 60-75% less expensive than FedEx for both International and US Domestic shipping.If you were put off by the FedEx shipping charges, take another look. I think you'll find the USPS rates significantly more reasonable!I'm also reposting my original information on these new products here:RSR---------------------------Captains-In a post a few weeks ago, I mentioned that PMDG has partnered with one of the worlds most respected publishers of flight manuals for cockpit crews- and the results are spectacular for PMDG MD-11 pilots!I have just made available for sale a number of new products related to the PMDG MD-11 simulation that is nearing release.POSTERS:========Single Pane Poster: This full color poster is printed on high quality paper stock and measures nearly 36" in height.

I did buy and received the complete printed manuals and poster.Have spent some time reading the manuals between all of them and referring to the poster to learn about normal operations at this time. Waiting for the pdf manuals and tutorials to be available for download.Perry

I just got my MD11 manuals and posters and they are great! Very professional. Now I have a lot of reading to do. Thank you.I was wondering if this kind of package will be available for the 747-400. Even though I have the Angle of Attack set, I would like to have a set of manuals for it like the ones for MD11.Thank you,Bob

Wolfgang-We're finding that delivery times using USPS can very depending mostly on the local postal services handling policies in the delivery country.The commercial companies do a much better job of time-definite delivery.It will arrive, though- of that we are certain!

I still have a question, maybe they answore it elsewhere but I missed this.Will the manuals be furnished as PDF files with the product ? (whole manual / perfs / procedures).If yes, I'll first take the plane then buy later the documentation if I fly really often with it ;) (I've almost no doubt I'll have to spend some more EUR really quick, anyway, I prefer to do it this way ;))
