if i make changes to a .dp file, do i have to delete the .CDP file for it to create an updated one or will it update itself the next time i fly the plane?

If the timestamp on the .dp file is newer it will recreate the .cdp file when you "use" the aircraft. If you're installing downloaded .dp files from other sources it's best to delete the .cdp file as the date of the downloaded file might be older than the last one you used.

THanks Spin !

that sounds right cos i notice they sometimes update on their own n yet there are posts that say they have to be deleted for changes to show. I guess your answer explains it.

cheers!
