Anyone using the great Carbon Cub in Hawaii?

Recommended Posts

Found it great to try "Gold" on some challenges... It's quite maneuverable and easy on those "Gold Coin" circuits I was unable to complete...

 

Of course some of the landing challenges in Alaska also bring up it's extraordinary STOL characteristics. The gravel landing challenge under very stron winds, with the tress swaying in the wind, is a must!

Try inverting it and see what happens :P I love the plane, I have spent most of my time flying the southern fjords skimming the tires across the water and seeing how short of a landing strip I can create on the sandbars and riverbanks.

 

Two votes for cockpitless airplanes. Do I hear three?

 

Its a great dis-service to the cub to have it without a cockpit, but it was free...

I'm trying to uninstall it...

 

Hopefully Microsoft goes back through all these basic aircraft and offer a deluxe upgrade. I'd buy them all then...

Yeah, I would probably pick up the war birds if they had cockpits.

There's NO SUCH THING as "Free". That's the 1st rule of business. Believe me, you're paying for it somewhere.

I'd grab the F4U for sure, if only it had a cockpit.

I keep thinking that they will come up with some DLC that will offer the upgrade to the current planes we have now to make it all 100% funtional.

Overall I have been enjoying Flight but I have a hard time understanding the facination with flying, if you can call it that, a cockpitless aircraft. I personally will not purchase one and refuse to "fly" the free ones in either Hawaii or Alaska or wherever. Hopefully MS will release a more suitable aircraft for Alaska in the near future.

Yes I have used the Cub in Hawaii. For today's aerocache as a matter of fact. I must say it's actually quite a nimble little plane. I was going quite slow with almost no throttle coasting in, and even became overconfidant and clipped a mast on one of the sail boats. I was able to easily recover.

 

While doing this, I thought, hmmmm.... all this water around and these big fat tires... I wonder.

 

So this is me.

Here I glide into the water.

And then climb out. It was pretty cool.

There is also one thing I never really noticed before. Maybe I just didn't pay any attention. There was smoke pouring out of this smoke stack... Did that always occure in Hawaii?

Yes, that's been in there since release. I'm a bit hazy about the smoke (uhm...), but you should see the same while on approach into Kahului on Mau'i.

I used it only to do challenges in Alaska. I don't like cockpitless planes. I don't have right feeling using them.
