JF Fokker F27 released

Recommended Posts

JustFlight's Fokker F27 was just released. Anyone tried it yet? I'm almost about to buy it but previous experience with JustFlight products (Dc-6, Constellation, Viscount etc) puts me off. I wonder if this one may be better though?

There's a youtude video thats been out for a month or so. It was done by a beta tester I think. JF is improving.

Just bought it(forgive the pun!).

 

Did a quick flight around the default Air Force base in P3D. Had one issue that on landing pressing F2 to reverse engines does not seem to work. Even using the 2 feather engines lever,  with throttles pulled back it seemed to carry along the deck for ages. Applying brakes via joystick made no difference. FPS seemed adequate. Textures seem okay.

Not sure but i think there is no reverse on this aircraft......

Okay, that explains why pressing F2 had no effect. I'll buy that bit what about slowing down using a joystick break or using F1 to cut throttle. It still had no effect till I pulled the feather levers back which while landing is difficult to do  as one has to wind the VC view way back to see these. May be practical in a 2-man crew scenario but not in a sim.

Nice video - nice plane!   Very reminiscent of Rick Piper's freeware HS748, which also has most of the things he raves over, like water-meth, fuel trimming and a quirky autopilot (I'll concede that it's not as pretty though).

 

For someone who has it, does the IAS mode on the autopilot work?

The Dart engine on the HS748  had a ground fine position which when selected basically turned the prop flat to the oncoming airflow which was like having a massive set of airbrakes

Its a long time since I worked the engine but I think the engine was started in this position also. So I guess the F27 was the same looking at the video
