Great minds think alike

Recommended Posts

Great news for everyone patiently waiting for the Woodpigeon, Avsim news pages are reporting that some antipodeon group have released a freeware version of the Tigermoth for FSX. While obviously not being in the same class as the WoodPigeon, it looks pretty and should be sufficiently good to practice the basics of biplane flight and tail dragger landings.

Just spent the weekend with this and I have to admit to being quietly impressed. Very old fashioned seat of the pants flying and navigation following roads, rivers and railways was a real giggle. With no flaps to slow your approach, or wheel brakes to slow your roll, you really have to think about your landings, crabing and side slipping into position and stalling onto the runway from a foot above it was really cool, while stalling from five foot above it was really embarassing. Obviously, it was not up to PMDG's standards but it was not bad. Over all, I would say hugely enjoyable. (Check out the backup airspeed indicator - genius!) Having been designed 10 years later and having an engine 100Hp more powerful combine to make the TigerMoth a very, very much easier plane to fly then the Woodpigeon. That said, all the techniques are the same, so get practising.
