Cntrl Ezy Pucara at Just Flight

Recommended Posts

IMHO what a fun aeroplane!

The product isn't marked on sale, but it is priced at £12.99 which is a little bit less than the $19.95 :cool:

The price you see at Just Flight might be related to your own location. Here in the UK, it shows up as £12.99. Unfortunately, I got it from Simmarket myself before it went on sale at JF, so I paid £19.41 for it when it converted it to Sterling from Euros at Simmarket.

It's not worth 20 quid in my opinion. It's good, but I think 10-12 quid is a fairer price for it considering that the Aerosoft OV-10 Bronco, which is a similar aircraft type, but is very detailed and functional, is only about 30 quid. So for an extra tenner, you'd be getting a much more detailed and capable ground attack/FAC aeroplane. Still, if you want a Pucara, it is a great-looking model and it is fun to fly.

It is perhaps worth also considering that in being a not especially complex aeroplane systems-wise, what you end up with if you get the Pucara, is a good-looking functional aeroplane which is not especially taxing on your PC, so there is that, and this is something to bear in mind given that it is the kind of aeroplane you'd want to throw about at low level with the terrain details turned up.

What might be more fun, is the forthcoming F-14 Tomcat they are making, since a good model of a 'turkey' with PBR textures will be quite a looker. Here's a fun picture of an F-14 incidentally - I bet most people didn't know the Tomcat could do this:

Some people think of the "dab" move is something originating in the last 20 years, but Grumman were doing it in the 80's :cool:
