DCS: Fw 190 - Watch and Learn...

Recommended Posts

Having completed my first successful* flight in the newly released DCS: Fw 190 D-9, I think it's safe to say that I am already an expert pilot and well on my way to becoming an ace. Herewith the photographic proof.

 

* read: "non-lethal"

 

Beginning the takeoff roll and feelin' good:

As I pick up speed, I perform what I like to call the "bicycle takeoff". Deliberately, of course. It's like a wheelie for planes.

Once in the air, I fly the runway heading* and set the power to climb.

 

* +/- 15 degrees

I vaguely recall a myth about a fellow named Icarus. Can't remember the details. I'm sure it's not important.

Ignore those weapon arming lights. I wasn't firing the guns for fun or anything like that.

Vroom!

On my second circuit (the first ended up as a missed appr--I mean, low pass). Coming in for a landing!

Like a glove!

I decided to use the grass instead. The runway is too mainstream.

Didn't need that.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how it's done! I hope you all have enjoyed this masterclass in flying the 190. Don't worry if it takes a while to get the hang of it; even a pro such as myself had to start someplace*.

 

* i.e., at the bottom of a smoldering crater

The Dora is a great plane indeed! Having a lot of fun with it so far, though it's got me itching for the Bf 109K now!

It just flies... so... smooooooth...

Definitely fun to fly, but seems a little twitchy to me, especially when it comes to rudder input. I don't know whether this is realistic behavior or not, so I'm hesitant to adjust the axis curves and saturation. :unsure:
