DCS Introduced Its First Civil Aircraft - I Reviewed It!

Recommended Posts

Magnitude III, LLC just released the Christen Eagle II for DCS.  While I prefer combat flight sims, hence DCS being my sim of choice, I do appreciate a well developed module and have plenty of experience in both FSX and X-Plane.  I'm a professional pilot by trade, so flying around on autopilot in my spare time isn't really my go-to anymore. That said, $30 for a fully-developed CE2 that works great in VR, is way cheaper than the $300/hr it would be to go get a few hours IRL.  The only thing missing is the G's.  Hope you guys enjoy and I'm looking forward to being a part of the community!

Yeah and it touched off a lot of back and forth on their official forum about the direction of DCS.

The more the merrier. For sure, the frequency of new aircraft has increased. I'm all for that.

Nice review.I have the module but not flown it much yet.

I for one will be delighted if DCS expand into  civilian operations. The flight modeling and graphics in DCS are simply sublime and capture a true sense of actually flying, and landing in particular, much more than any other simulator available in my opinion.I have quite a few of the high end combat aircraft modules in DCS such as the F18, A10C, F86 however I don't use their weapons systems, I'm just interested in the high performance flight characteristics.
