Hopefully they can crack on with that Boeing 247 now.

Is this a joke? The developer went into radio silence more than two years ago while the Vega was and is still in early access state. And now he appears with a new product to sell? Simply meaning he had been intentionally avoiding to answer all the forum posts to people who bought the early access because he was working on something else?

You have a little right, Im owner of this Vega too (amazing addon even on beta stage btw, A2A quality or better) but perhaps it was too ambitious project for this small studio (1 person) at beginning and the sale wasnt very good to finish it. I dont know, but maybe not all words were said in Vega topic. The fact is that it wasnt  good for PR for the beginning but come on! Give him chance :). My fingers are crossed for each vintage project ;>.

I purchased this.
The installation file is not the usual way creating a folder to unzip and move manually to the community folder.

It is instead an .exe file which does that for you. Except my antivirus (Norton) prevented making that folder and therefore the .exe program dumped all the files individually inside community folder and I had to delete them all and try again.

I would suggest turning off virus software or installing by pointing the install application to a newly created by you dummy folder instead of pointing it to your community folder, and then manually move the .exe created folder over to your community folder.

So it installed great doing that and is a fun historical accurate plane.

I think it is too difficult to fly comfortably for sightseeing.

I would wait for a youtube video on operating this plane before buying or flying, the .pdf manual is rudimentary in its explanations.

I have to take back my statement that they are too difficult for sightseeing. They are not but....

Apparently Wing42 mixed up some files.

Their website says: their released Gnome rotary engine Bleriot was the fastest:

Cruise speed:
Anzani 60 km/h (32 knots)
Gnome 78 km/h (42 knots)
Max. speed:
Anzani 68 km/h (37 knots)
Gnome 90 km/h (49 knots)
Stall speed:
Anzani 35 km/h (19 knots)
Gnome 25 km/h (19 knots)
=================================================
But the installed flightmodel.cfg say:
Anzani
full_flaps_stall_speed =59
flaps_up_stall_speed =68
cruise_speed =176
Gnome
full_flaps_stall_speed =20
flaps_up_stall_speed =20
cruise_speed =44
 
Long story short I selected what I thought was the historically latest and fastest model because the early first flown Bleriots were notoriously difficult, so I selected the later faster Gnome version in MSFS. In real life and on their website the Gnome version is the one easy to fly and the fastest (really 77 knots or so).
 
 
But Wing42 mixed up of their files in what they sell: in MSFS the Anzani engine Bleriots fly faster and easier by far. This is wrong and what fooled me.
 
So it's all good, the faster Gnome versions were famous in real life and were exported all over the world. They are also good in MSFS, only named wrong. In MSFS the Gnome versions fly like the Anzani versions and vice versa (version 1 of the wing42 Bleriot released today).

This plane was found in an old abandoned barn in the 1980's. It has the Gnome 50 H.P. engine and flies very well.

At least you won't have to worry about the avionics potentially conking out on this thing. 🙂 It looks really nice actually, but as expressed here and in other places, I think it is on the developer to address the issues with the preceding Vega if they are to not leave a sour taste in people's mouths which might affect sales of other stuff. If there's one thing flight simmers can do, it is hold a grudge!
