New Fokker and the Dash 8 or Falcon 50

Recommended Posts

OK, I am going to go way out on a small limb here with this.I D/L'd the new Fokker and yes I love it. Very well done indeed. Actually I consider it to be exceptional.Now the but.How come we have not seen the same hype that this aircraft is getting compared to the Falcon 50 by Yannick Lavigne or the Dash 8 by Oleksiy Frolov.In my most lowly and humble opinion the latter two far exceed the new Fokker. The realism is very different. The Dash 8 for example can only be attempted by a serious simmer who wants true "as real as it gets". Since it's release I am still learning its many operational ways. I really feel like I am going through what a real world Dash 8 pilot must sometimes feel when learning to fly it. yes the outside model itself is not the best there is, but if you are a true inside flyer it can't be beat.As for the Falcon, well what can one say. This is a true masterpiece in all its glory. Everything on this model is A-1, top notch, super duper.Again, please don't get me wrong, I love the new Fokker. I am just curious thats all.Lastly, does anybody flying the Antonov AN24-RV, that was made for FS2K, in FS2K2? This was the aircraft that raised the bar for model makers. There is still things about that model that exceed models built now.http://www3.telus.net/dport1/Radar_small.gifFS2K2 = The best add-on for RADAR CONTACT ver.3http://www3.telus.net/dport1/Radar_small.gifhttp://www3.telus.net/dport1/dansig.jpg

I agree Yannick's Falcon 50 is truly a work of art!!!Now if we can just get him to build a 50EX model, complete glass cockpit and model the entire Collins Proline 4 avionics package with UNS-1 series FMC, I'd be the first inline to buy that puppy.It would almost need to be payware due to the level of work one would need to build just the panel alone.JP

Your right on the money DanAll of them are just great and the best is they all got their pluses.As for me;The Falcon 50 is just a superbly designed / modeled, and painted aircraft. The panel, 2D and VC are just exceptional.The Dash 8 .. well the sound is unsupassed and what I like so much about the panel is you have to actually learn how to use it to start the aircraft .. not just another jump in and go :-)I just got the Fokker and I think it is very well designed. I got the panel and sound files for it and they are great. I did one flight in it so far and it handles great.These are all quality aircraft .. and free yet!Novastar
