That is really odd. Deutschmark has the same problem. But for two other testers it works also without any problem. Please give me two or three days for a version with the rudders as parts. I will add this version to the product page and users who bought the addon can download it.

ok I have added a rudder patch for those customers who have no working rudders. To download this patch click on download at the product page and download the "Rudder_Patch".

Unzip the file and copy the content into the Puma and Dachs addons.


Note: Only customers who have no working rudders need to install this patch!

I've released a patch for the Puma & Dachs addon. This patch is for Vehicle Simulator 2.6.4 and higher versions. You can download the patch at the product page.
Unzip the file and copy and past all files to both the Puma and Dachs folder.

- corrected rotation axes of the radar for VSF 2.6.4 or higher

Thanks to johopp for reporting the issue.
