Updated AD-6

I just posted an updated AD-6 that is meant to work with FlightGear post-2.0. I'm calling that "2.0+". This model incorporates the "simulation/sim-time-sec" change mentioned below. It also has a propwash feature that allows the horizontal tail to react to propwash. For example, if you gun the engine and apply nose down elevator you can lift the tail wheel off the ground. You can also flip the airplane up onto the nose, so be careful.

The propwash is not seen by the vertical tail yet. My first attempt at that resulted in a bad reaction between the tail forces and the tail wheel, which caused the airplane to hop and spin around.

The newer JSBSim code has moved the property "sim/time/sec" to "simulation/sim/time/sec". All my models use at least one system which relies on sim/time/sec, so this breaks all of them. The effected systems are: alpha_buffet, beacon, beacon2 and crash-detect, and there may be others. I'll leave models in the Hangar as they are, which should work with FG 2.0. If you build a newer version of FG you'll probably have to edit the above files, or else FG will abort.
