Aircraft Factory P-51H <First Impressions>

Recommended Posts

Just completed a couple of test flights in the "new" FSX native P-51H from Aircraft Factory.  It is very reasonably priced at $20. Excellent visual model and outstanding virtual cockpit.  The aircraft flight model is very sweet and seems much easier than the Shockwave "H" portover, but it is definitely much easier to handle than the A2A Accusim P-51D, the smaller fuse tank helps.  I think the performance - speed wise - is comparable to Shockwave H.  Max speed was 424knts true at 25000, but the range was below 600nm at that speed/altitude.  I had to climb up to 30000 to get 750nm range and airspeed was down to 412knts true.  Will continue to test, I like it.

Looks like a nice model.  External tanks?

Yes,  It has drop tanks.  First flight was clean.  Definitely need the tanks for race length legs.
