Livery by Donka. | Ac modelled very nicely by Asobo. It feels like you're sitting in a small car rather than an aircraft, and that seems to be authentic. A good slow speed sight-seer and of course it's also amphibious. Remains underutilised ATM but I must drag it out for local flights where there are any water features about the place.
Cruise ~ 80-100 kts | Livery by Donka. | Has to he hands down the best view out of the cockpit short of flying a gyrocopter, which has no protection from the elements. Plus, this plane is a veritable head-turner!
Very nice and predictable with a fluidity to the flight model that enhances immersion. Probably one of the smoothest in the landing regime with no hiccups or quirks. This makes it a pure pleasure to fly. The cockpit is 5 -star accommodation with great, unobstructed visibility.
Cruise ~ 450 kts Three variants in the fleet: A = conventional takeoff and landing, B = S/VTOL, C = carrier. | Livery by Donka. | Fun to fly, especially S/VTOL in the B model. DO NOT get below 200 knots, which can come on suddenly around the circuit. Absolutely beautifully modelled by India FoxTecho. I had their F-35 for Prepar3D, and this one is even nicer. It's also frame rate friendly.
Twin engined transonic jet trainer originally developed with Yaklovev. The Yak-130, with a similar form factor, entered service with the Russian Air Force in 2010. | M-346FA is the multirole variant pictured here.
Cruise ~ 250 kts | Fitted with 4-way wide angle recon cams | Stable and reliable, I used it to recon my initial MiGMan’s World Tour flights during which it recorded over 700 videos and took more than 5,000 images. | Livery by Donka.
The cockpit interior has bland textures, however that's irrelevant to me because I use a physical cockpit. BUT - it's in the flight model that the MiG wins! Fantastically fluid and responsive. Does it perform accurately at the extremes of the envelope? Well, (1) I wouldn't really know and (2) I don't think ANY of the ac do, and that's down to limitations of the sim's flight modelling. I also enjoy the engine sounds, which use at least 3 different frequencies and change as you move around the airframe. Great fun.
Cruise ~ 80kts | Sightseeing. Excellent visibility. | VERY short take off and landing. Can operate on most terrain. | Evolution: Piper Cub > Zlin Shock Cub > Zlin Shock Ultra (ultralight) | Ac modelled phenomenonally well by Asobo. Livery by Donka.
Cruise speed ~ 350 kts. Max speed > 550 kts. Well appointed rear cockpit. Great for recon and low level valley flights at the speed of a jet trainer. | Livery by Donka. | Amazing modelling by India FoxTecho. | Haven't spent enough time in this, which I must rectify.
