Aerobatic aircraft

Recommended Posts

Any good race or aerobatic planes out there that are a step above the (not so) trusty Extra 300? Free or fee, it doesn't matter. Just curious.

Yup, I've linked some good ones below (I have all of these and they are all cool). If you want something like the default Extra that is a lot better than it, note that one of those linked below (the Sukhoi SU-26) is a great choice, all the others are biplanes, so not quite a direct replacement for the Extra, but good all the same. Also note that you can buy these from plenty of places and Simmarket might not be the cheapest one, so these links are just for convenience: http://secure.simmar...ten-eagle.phtml http://secure.simmar...-s-2b-fsx.phtml http://secure.simmar...hoi-su-26.phtml http://www.addictive.it/Pitts/ You'll need rudder pedals to get the best out of all these by the way.

That pitts from addictive simulations looks good. I went up in a pitts about a year ago. Nearly sucked my face off but it was a ton of fun

There's an Avsim review of the Addictive Pitts (by me in fact) if you want more info on it. It is tricky to fly, some of the other ones are a little bit easier to get to grips with, so don't expect to be doing perfect four point rolls in it within ten minutes of installing it. A good companion to all of the above is the FS add-on 'Airshow Pilot' from Just Flight incidentally, which is fun and very challenging, as well as being quite a good tool for practicing your aeros.

If you can hang on for a few weeks, the SibWings Pitts S-1 is in beta at this moment. Yes - it's absolutely fully aerobatic.

Sibwings looks like they have some quality products. I didn't know anything about them. How do they fly? Flight dynamics are important to me

I suppose only the developer is in a position to tell you that about their Pitts, since that one isn't released yet. Al

No - I'm just involved with testing. There's lots of activity but no release date.

Lotus simulations L-39 Albatros has a great version of a bird flown in the Reno air races, since you asked for aero or racing aircraft. RealAir has great aircraft and the SF260 and Decathlon will both fly very well and have spin capabilities coded in well.

Check out Piglet's freeware Zlin... excellent FDE, capable of hammerheads etc... http://www.flightsim...e=ZLINZ-50L.ZIP

Agreed - I own all of those! Superb, especially the L39!
