Felis Tu-154M

Recommended Posts

Tu-154M from Felis is released (developed since January 2014), waiting for reviews. Seems to be hardcore classic jet from year 1968 - with enough work for 3-member crew. Real docs are included, no tutorial so far.

IXEG, Felis Tu-154, PMDG DC-6 ... we've been waiting years for these and they all get released now :D

Looks like the time is approaching for me to finally go for X-Plane 10. Now to find the money for a new flightsim rig ...

Wanted to take a look for curiosity, but could not find at the org or here after a quick search. Is there a link for this? Thanks in advance!

 

Best, Jeff

 

 

EDIT: I found it at the org store. Wasn't looking there.

Well I'm a huge fan of the AN-24 so it wasn't even a question that I would have to get the Tu-154 as well. After a little hiccup with the sounds (for some reason, the sound sliders in settings/sounds had been reset to zero, even though I never touched these settings) I've fired the Tupolev up and went for a short flight. It went fairly well, apart from a little engine fire and a slightly dented fence at the destination airport, but it sure was fun!

 

The aircraft is, in short, outstanding. Visually, it can't compete with some other offerings such as the IXEG (the textures aren't great) but it looks fine overall. But the real fun is to operate all the gazillion switches on all those various panels, half of them hidden at obscure angles, and to explore all the idiosyncrasies of those systems. There's hardly any switch or lever that can't be operated, and it comes with working weather radar, terrain radar, and TCAS (something some other developers have had their difficulties with!).

No idea wether the flight model is accurate or not, but it feels spot on. I tried a few stalls and discovered that the AoA gauge is there for good reason... I went into an unrecoverable stall very quickly, a pretty scary experience.

 

There's a very good startup tutorial by Felis:

A really good reference for a cold&dark startup, as the procedures involved are slightly different from a Boeing.

I am liking this. Think I'll have to get this one and the soon-to-be released DC-6. Expensive month.. Anyone find any good reviews for the Tuploev?

Have to do a bit of a shout-out about this aircraft. You guys owe it to yourself to get this one. It's freaking awesome.

It is freaking awesome, yes. The yearn to fly this one is currently greater than other aircrafts I have, and basically I have all the best of the X-Plane aircraft.

 

I'm looking forward to fly it online, but first step is to master it enough.
