FW 190 & Long Nose Opnions Please

Post cflord »

I would like to add the FW 190 Butcher Bird & Long Nose to my WWII fighter inventory and would like to get a few opnions from you guys on these birds. Do you like them? Do they fly well? etc. All opnions welcome and would be helpful.

Keep the shinny side up and the dirty side down!

I have them both and I love them. A+ in all catagories... I've had to do re-installs of FS9 in the past and the WoP planes are the first to go back in so to speak. In short they are well worth every penny...

Yes I am a 22 year Retired USAF C-130 Flight Engineer and Vietnam Vet! I currently work at the Eastern Regional Flight Simulator at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta Georgia. I am an academic and simulator instructor working for Lockheed Martin and contracted to teach the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve flight crews to fly the C-130H2 & H3. The big advantage of this job is that I get to fly a real flight simulator from time to time, which is pretty cool.

I plan to buy the Butcher Bird next month and I did buy the Plane Design Supermarine Spitfire, Iris P-40 Warhawk, CDWT F6F Hellcat, Aeroplane Heaven F4U Corsair, Flight Replicas Messerschmitt BF-109f and the Sky Unlimited P-38 Lightning. These are great additions to my collection of WoP Fighters and Bombers. I also have the MAAM R4D/C-47 and B-25 Mitchell "Briefing Time". I love WWII airplanes!

Hey guys

I could not wait until next month to buy the Butcher Bird and I got it today. I also got the 1.11 and the 1.2 patch. This is a pretty sweet flying warbird. I am going to have a good time flying this one!

I got the long nose and I wouldn´t say it fly well but that is one of the reason I got it... It punishes you instantly and very hard for the slightest of misstakes you do. But that is no complaint it´s infamous for its high G stalls and sensitive ailerons after all :).

Seeing it´s strikingly similar to IL 2s long nose birds I guess that is a big thumbs up to both shockwaveproductions and olegs team :)

From what I seen the VC and such is not as polished as shockwaveproductions latest FSX aircrafts but very good by FS9 standard for sure :) I really like the bubble cockpit dora.

They work fine in FSX, I have both the Long nose and the HE219 converted.
