Biplane for FSX

Recommended Posts

Can someone recommend a quality native FSX biplane? I've been sitting in the back yard watching a couple of Stearman's practicing stunts over the FBO all afternoon and it got me in the mood to fly one in FSX. What's the best? Payware or freeware is fine.

Not sure who makes it but the Christan Eagle is great. :(

I'm actually looking for a bit more vintage Ron, you know, like a B55/G58 :( . I just remembered there's a great Tiger Moth in the library I'm going to check out.

Another vote for Ant's wonderful Tiger Moth.

No doubt about Ant's Tiger Moth. First class! It's a stick and rudder bird though - there's no AP ability, but it'll roll with the best of them.I'd like to recommend the Stearman 75/PT-17 by Golden Age Sim. An excellent model, and you can fix it up so that Otto will do most of the work. I got mine from the PC Aviator download store.

For a freebie you could try is Tim Conrads WACO UPF-7 for FSX SP2 it is pretty good. I can't recall which library I downloaded it from but Google is your friend. One of the Piglet's Peculiar Planes Stable.

Yep, I tried that one. In fact, I've been through about 10 or so last night and this morning. My favorite is that Tiger Moth. That's a quality offering.

Does the Tiggie have the realistic impulse generator failure when approaching power lines as a mate of mine's did in RW? :(

I usually don't 'recommend' any aircraft but this one might fill the bill. File name is 'pitt_s2b.zip', 1074 kb. Came out in 2006. Works in FSX.Quote: 'TF-TOY Pitts S-2b version 1.0, by David Skulason and the model is by Yasuhiro Ishii. This plane works for Flight Simulator 2004'.I can not locate the web site the read me cites. Went 'out of business' I guess. I tweaked the cfg and air file (and can make it available at MediaFire hosting site-will upload tomorrow-it's late). I mean this thing is ridiculous fun. Has spoiler. Does 250 kts. Will post link to file tomorrow. I have had the Stearmans, the Waco, etc and this one I can fly and land from 2D panel (I press 'W' to get mini panel gauges). Has VC (only rpm gauge shows) so you can add your own vc if you prefer VC. The views are there (view R/L from 2D. I use hat switch for those). Looks good. Prop is ok. Glass is ok. Has pilot. Has smoke. Just a great model. If you already tried it, and didn't like it, wait and try it again with my FDE's. You might like it then.CBNapamule
