Having a few discount points and a sale price at "Just Flight", I purchased this aeroplane for my flight simulator before Christmas with the intention of flying it around the simulated Pacific. It owes me the price of two coffees and a bun!
All of these aircraft lack flaps and spoilers. Speed control relies on engine performance and flight attitude. It takes a bit of time and skill to fly this aeroplane well, but once you have the limits defined, it is a joy to fly. You just have to accept that this aircraft will get to your destination in its own time.
I am delighted that I can now fly this aeroplane without stalling the engines. It is easy if you know where you want the aeroplane to be in 10 miles time and you have the distance in which to descend slowly.
