Continuing on our journey to DFW, TWA MD-82 style with the FS Kneeboard 2 preview!Closing up the aircraft, pushing back, and starting the engines leads us to our taxi out:...and finally takeoff: (I miss the red stripe!)and the after takeoff checklist:About 80 minutes later we are nearing top of descent into DFW, time for another look at the arrival weather..looks to be a pretty mild night:Then the descent and approach briefing:...as well as a review of where our parking gate is using a diagram I uploaded through FSK2's DropBox feature (also extremely handy for custom PDFs, international charts, etc.):Then landing, taxi in, and shut down. Another fun, short hop completed:Hope this gives you a little bit of insight on some of the many way FSK2 can be used in conjunction with your flight sim flying! Screenshots can only do so much justice for the convenience, ease-of-use, organization, and access of information with FSK2.-Kyle

One thing that I can see which might be missing is a way to store all of my PDF flight manuals. I'm constantly flipping between applications on the ipad and it's usually between ibooks/goodreader and fskneeboard. If there was a manual tab at the bottom, I'd be set and would not have to flip between them. Also comes in handy for storing NGX tutorial flights. Maybe I missed in in the feature spec - maybe it's hidden in the tools button.Of course I missed it. I just re-read the feature sheet and saw that there is a way to access PDFs via the browser.Noticed that the current fs kneeboard also has similar functionality that I was not aware of for viewing PDFs.

Jason, on the DTP page you notice in the screenshots above that you have Departure, Alternate and Arrival and to each you can load charts on five tabs. In your case I'd upload the manual in question via Dropbox and then load it to a tab eg on the Alternate page (simply because that's the one least likely to be filled with charts). I also use Goodreader, actually the one APP I use the most on my iPad, but just for basic reading of manuals or checklists, you can do it equally well in FSKneeboard!Accessing the PDF via the dropbox support in the inbuild browser, is one. Another one is to install the dropbox program on your computer. You then have a dropbox folder in Explorer (if we are talking windows) and just dragging files to the Apps/FSKNeeboard 2 folder there, will upload them to the iPad. Piece of cake!
