Reports on ASDG SuperCub?

Recommended Posts

Thought there would be a lot of chatter about this product!  Anyone have it?

Working fine here!

Flying is pure fun. Systems are easy and working nicely, takeoff run is very short (even with 150 HP version). Works fine also in VR (with FlyinsideXP). Ground steering is much easier than with LES DC-3, still managed to do few groundloops.

Thanks, I can't decide between this and the Aerobask Velocity Twin.... argh!  I like speed but that super cub looks awesome and great for bush flying - and it does have a bit more speed than a std cub.

The super cub is very expensive and it´s not sold at the Org :/

The Velocity Twin is totally different but if you own the Panthera, i would suggest the super cub lol

I heard the cub is expensive because it's got REP included and you're paying two developers.

but yeah it's pricey 

I do already have the epic jet, panthera, and Eclipse

I was also reading today at the ASDG forums that the cub has issues in XP11.10 beta.  That's the version I use.  Is anyone using the Cub in 11.10b6?  People were having issues controlling it while taxiing etc.

Yes. The problem is in fact a problem of the Propwash Effect, if the engine runs with low power and you have a higher crosswind. It isn´t easy, but it is doable even if you don´t have Rudder pedals.

If Austin doesn´t fix it in 11.10 Alan plans a hidden second engine for the rudder to simulate the correct Propwash.

Thanks - also do you know if the RXP GTN 650 is currently supported ?  I think I saw on their site is was either working or coming later.

I don´t have the GTN 650 or even plan to buy it. I have the 750. But was it really a GTN 650? I know that they plan an iPad in the cockpit, with its own webbrowser like in the FF A320 Ultimate.

According to their site the GTN650 is coming.  The 750 - maybe be in a future update (I noticed their typo with GNS650 - they meant GTN):

 

"A: Yes, we will support Reality XP in future free updates.  The initial support will however only be for the GNS650 and GNS430/530 products.  The GNS750 will be supported in a future upgrade for Cub Crafters Carbon Cub addition."

I bought it a few days ago.  It's the single most demanding aircraft I've ever bought for X Plane.  So disappointed.  The A2A Cub was my favorite plane in FSX/P3D.  I have far more hours in it than most of the rest of my aircraft combined.  So I was keen to get this one for X Plane, which is basically the only civil sim I fly anymore.

It's a bit buggy.  Crashed X Plane a couple of times.  The ground handling is very problematic on take off, probably due to some changes in prop effect in 11.10.  

The main issue is performance, though.  I get in the single digits and teens for FPS on the ramp.  In flight that will climb into the high 20s.  I get 30-60 for every other addon aircraft I own for X Plane, and I have a couple of more demanding aircraft, like the VFlyte Cherokees (I don't know why those are so FPS hungry, but they are).  Sitting on an airfield in the default C172, I will get about 60 FPS.  Switch to the Super Cub, and it's in the teens.  

Very disappointed.

What kind of Hardware do you use? Even my ancient i7-950 with 18 GB RAM ahnd an old NVidia 770 with 4 GB VRAM runs this plane without any problems.

That's strange.  I have an i5 2500K o/c at 4.4ghz with 16gb ram and a 4gb 970 GPU.  

I tried it at several airports.  When loading in straight from the selection menu, the FPS is in the single digits.  When loading after starting in something like the C172 and switching, it's in the teens.  

As I said, that's with the 2K textures installed.  Not sure what the problem is.  I've read others report poor graphics performance with it, but I wasn't expecting that poor.  It's odd that it's the only aircraft out of a number that I own that has such poor performance.  I wish I didn't have this problem.  It would easily be my favorite plane if it worked for me.  Seems to have been very well crafted.

She is now available at the Org and is 10$ cheaper.

I've read multiple conflicting reports on performance... like Griphos' above, and like Longranger's too...  I wonder why the performance is so different?  Has the developer done anything?

I have been flying the  ASDG Supercub for the last few days. It's very nice. Although I don't watch the FPS counter I would say it's slightly heavier on demands but still very smooth even in high object areas such as Vancouver and Seattle. It seems a bit twitchy on the ground at slow speeds but hey, it's a taildragger and you have to be on the rudder like a river dance sometimes. I even watched some real life taildragger training videos (Flightchops on youtube I believe). Watch what you feet need to do in a real Supercub. Ground looping is a possibility for sure! It ain't easy to be a taildragger pilot!  But I don't think the flight modelling is perfect, maybe it's my MSFF2 joystick, but I think it noses over too easily at very slow speeds ie when you need to make it stick to the runway in a crosswind slip landing, for example.

I had the same problem with horribly low frame rates (low teens).  This was solved for me by using the '.acf' files provided in the 'OPTIONAL 11.10 Beta' directory (they are called '.noacf' in there, to avoid confusing X-Plane, you need to backup the '.acf' files in the parent dir, and copy these ones over with the appropriate '.acf' extension).

These 'OPTIONAL 11.10 Beta' files were available in the 1.04 version.  With these in place I no longer have the low framerate problem (I am running X-Plane 11.11 from Steam)

I bought the from the Aerosimulations store (aerosimulations.com).  That website is not working anymore; I wonder if I'll ever get updates :-(.  Somehow every time I buy an X-Plane product outside of the X-Plane store I end up regretting it...
