He flew around the world in a Cessna a few years ago. He has some great videos of it on his channel.

Yep - looks a bit young (but he is 26 years and that's the age of many squadron leaders in WW2 😉). He seems to know what he's talking about though and seems like a nice guy.

In a previous video using the beta he said the FM for the X-Cub was completely wrong, so I wonder if he's tried that again in the RC. Fingers crossed it's all been largely fixed.

Another reason why we need someone to do a comparison video between the preview and the release builds so we can get a better feeling for improvements to the FM and performance.

That's only because the average Avsim user age is 57 🤣

"One Robin (no pun intended) does not a Summer make."

Don't go by a single aircraft, check them all out and let us know which ones work and which ones don't.  Some will be better than others.

PS.  Ok, that pun was most definitely intended.  So sue me. 🙂

But - this guy who obviously has a lot of GA hours like many of the FMs in MSFS a lot... So there is really no reason for the FM panic here lately. If they can do some of them good there is no fundamental problem in the code - it just needs tweaking and we will get tons of patches in the upcoming weeks / months / years. There is a big difference now and 15 years ago when FSX was released. Then we got a few patches spread out with months in between. These days everyone is (unfortunately) used to the fact that games get released in some kind of late Beta stage and you get patches pushed through online distributions platforms every other day/week for years. So I feel very confident that we will have decent FMs for all the default planes in a couple of months. Some of them are good already so then we will have to stick with them.

I really like the prop FM in IL2 BoX that feels realistic to me (the only "WW2 era planes" I have flown are unfortunately the Cub and the Tiger Moth that do not count). When they release new planes they can be rather wonky - but it quickly gets fixed as the underlying code is sound. When they released the P-47 recently it could turn like a Zero with the flaps down but that was naturally fixed in a couple of weeks after zillions of threads in their forums. Now it feels heavy and sluggish as it should.

But the secret pilot testers in the alpha have whispered in some people's ears that all hope is lost. The 18th will be interesting. 🤓

I'm not that concerned about the flight dynamics, Asobo have obviously focused on it and are aware of concerns. Also as many people say they like them as say they don't like them, which is usually an indication it's just about right on something so subjective 🤣

What I am concerned about is the engine modelling, there's been no mention of it by anyone it seems.

This dude flew a Cessna over the Atlantic ocean. Awesome pilot. 

Or stupid. Or brave. Or a sadist. Or all four. 🤣
