Ant's T28B & C released.

Recommended Posts

Honestly - I didn't expect this - but this one is right up there with RealAir, and is now on my list (after AS Next...)

Beautiful detail - much better than any of the A2A "Aircraft Factory" line, and at an unbelievably low price!

I bought the "D" version finally... just to support Ant.  He makes nice planes for low cost.

 

Unfortunately it appears FlightSimStore only has ver 1.1 for the D model.  I guess I'll have to wait for version 2.0.

Thanks Paul for the HUP.  I have the Sierra LSA and it is a joy to have fun in.  Can't beat their prices for some really good planes.  I hope PCA has the new version T28 so I can go over there and pick one up with a 10% off on Tuesdays.

OooOooOOo.. I LOVE Ants work.. Highly underrated aircraft and that's before you take into considering the low prices he asks for them in return..

I see no mention of addressing the flooding issue. :unsure:

Issue has been addressed. Found out the problem was constantly updating the spoiler settings (to account for drag from the canopy and cowl flaps) was the problem.

 

At the moment only simmarket has the T-28 online with FS Pilot Shop saying it should be up tomorrow morning. All other retailers have been informed but I have heard nothing from them yet.

Rippa! Or is it 'Ripper' :biggrin:  Either way, top man. Off to the shops...In the morning. :wink:

JustFlight have D V2 and are currently working on the B/C:

Existing T-28D owners can download the V2 installer from their account with the above retailers.

I have heard nothing from Flightsimstore nor PC Aviator Australia so unfortunately I don't know when they will update their files.

Still no sign of Adrian having woken up. Or have you done something to upset him Ant? B)

I assume the download size has changed from 109.40mb.

Just downloaded this after trying the demo. It really is a match for payware costing three times as much. The external and internal attention to detail is excellent, as is the radial engine sound - even the documentation is good. I mainly fly RealAir and A2A aircraft but this definitely up there with the best and absolutely amazing value for money. Although there have been some mentions of framerate hits because of the level of detail, I haven't noticed anything significant on my very modest system. Buy it, you'll love it!

If you like this then also consider looking at the Sib Wings An-2 - another incredibly detailed aircraft at an unbelievably low price! I completely missed this when it came out last year and, although a little quirky, it has rapidly become a favourite of mine to fly. I can recommend it most highly!

The T-28A (free version/donation) is very joyful to fly, it's rather slow (800hp?) but the model is really really nice for a freeware! 

 

What's the different between T-28B/C and D by the way? They sell them separately. The T-28D is a standalone. From what I have been reading, the engine power of both models are alike, and the cockpits are similar to. I'll get one of those but not sure which, and I don't fly/to from carriers

Hello Mr fuelpumps

 

Here is the full list of the differences between the A, B/C and D models.

 

- B/C and D has 1425 hp engine vs 800hp in the A model
- B/C and D have 3 bladed prop vs 2 bladed in A model
- B/C and D have a lower profile canopy
- B/C and D have 6 weapon stations vs 2 in the A model
- B/C and D available as payware only vs A available as donationware
- B/C has a different panel layout with the location of many instruments changed
- B/C has a different attitude indicator, airspeed, manifold pressure and engine rpm gauges
- B/C has different cockpit and gauge lighting
- B/C has different switch panel and exterior lighting system
- B/C have a speed brake
- C model has a tailhook for carrier operations
- B/C has US Navy and Marines repaints, the D has Air Force, Fennec and COIN repaints, the A has US Air Force repaints

 

The layout of the gauges (and some of the gauges themselves) are rather different between the B/C and the A/D. Not so much that it should worry you but it does make you stop and think if you have to swap between the A/D and the B/C. The operation of the switch panel is also rather different. In this respect getting the B/C would mean having to learn a few new things while transitioning to the D model would be a lot simpler as you would only need to learn how to use the supercharger.

 

Most D models (although not all) were originally A models but modified with the larger 1425hp engine that was fitted to the B and C which is why the cockpits of the D and A are so similar.

 

Really it comes down to personal preference.
