Once you've run X-Plane, choose a plane with a 3D cockpit.
Loading a cockpit can be long the first time (up
to a few minute !), if the cockpit.nml file is not present.
Don't worry ! the plugin has not crashed X-Plane but he is creating the
cockpit.nml file from the obj file, and computing time depend of the
complexity of the 3D cockpit.
Then, the file is saved and futur loading of this cockpit will be then
very quick ;-)
