Finally got my copy of the Powerpack!
For some obscure reason, the package was sent back to Shockwave without reaching me.
Thanks for sending it again, Scott!
I just took the Firepower P-51D for a short flight and I must say that my jaw dropped to my keyboard!
This is the most amazing aircraft I ever flew in CFS3!!!
I love it for exactly the same reasons I love the WOP P-51D/H for FS9.
No other plane gives me this feeling of really being up there.
Like the way the magnificent engine sounds change with the slightest adjustement of throttle or propellor pitch.
The reactions to stick, rudder and throtlle are very smooth and extremely believable to such a degree I never did think was possible in CFS3.
It does not feel like CFS3, it feels like FS9 and WOP.
A dream coming true.
Stalls, spins, sideslips, it's all there.
I must confirm Stickshaker's remarks though:
- wheelbrakes do not function
- tailwheel is always locked, Shift-L to unlock does not work
- these two combined make decent ground handling completely impossible, please fix!
- torque at take-off is a lot less than what I'm used to in FS9
When are you going to convert the next WOP aircraft to CFS3?
I 'll have my wallet ready.
