  1. Got it prior to your review and it's just like you say. Back in FSX, I had the Digital Aviation model originally made for FS2004 and it was not too shabby.
  2. Just purchased and flew your little jewel. Creamy smooth - perhaps too smooth, feels like a jet rather than a recip. Didn't try too much - power on stall, full flaps, gear up showed about 45 kt and it broke left. Need to study your airspeed a little more - seems a lot of pitch down to maintain Vmc with full flaps on final approach. The design has a lot of retro for today's crowd but it's all very well done - love to see more.
  3. Back in the day, I flew a Piper Apache with a couple of O320's with Rayjay chargers. It was basically 4 place so how does this tandem two place get 180kt cruise with the same power?
  4. Bit of a let down model-wise after their stunning Spitfire. With that benchmark they could make WW2 virtually theirs.
  5. I looked at mine and see it's part 1 - perhaps instructions for both will come with part 2.
  6. Excellent it is but installation, in my case, was a bit tricky. Believe what you read and all will be good.
  7. I wholeheartedly agree the gear geometry needs work. While it was notorious, like the Me109, for its narrow gear track, my particular problem is that, as it accelerates, one gear leg loses grip/friction causing the wing to lift. Immediate correction causes a similar action from the other wing - added to the rudder business becomes a handful. Should add that I get this with the MDLAG 109 also so the problem may be mine.
  8. At first I just didn't like the grass color. Aerosoft really picked a loser for this one - low bidder? "Good onya" as they say in your neck of the woods.
  9. That's definitely one point of view but not mine so I'll keep my fingers crossed.
  10. A bit overdue but nonetheless most welcome - hopefully those of us current owners will get a discount.
  11. A thing that has always irked me about this model - the engine cowling is in only three pieces. A Supercub has a belly cowl, two side cowls which attach to the belly cowl with brackets and dzus fasteners and a top cowl. The top cowl attaches to the side cowls with a piano hinge on either side. These hinges are missing on this cub - no reaction when brought to their attention. A small thing perhaps but not when you're coughing up $40+.
