Carenado Waco

Recommended Posts

Nvidia driver mod having upped my fps, tonight flying the drop dead gorgeous Waco!

I cheat a bit by making the pilot 305 pounds and putting a 25 pound suitcase up front. (You have to do this in the hangar before going to FLY. It can't be done in this plane in the handlebar).

And like with warbirds, I use assisted takeoff in the MSFS options. Until MSFS makes realistic tail drag physics I am forced to do that with over powered tail draggers. Carenado put in a larger engine than most Wacos. So it's squirrely on the runway like a warbird. I never do any of this with trike gears no matter how powerful.

I think it's Carenado's most handsome plane. I fly with seat scooted back so I can see the rear view mirrors and a larger windscreen view.

Forward center of gravity, tends to keep a plane going in a straight line.

The idea to use the assisted ruddder for these birds is a good advice. 👍

I have the P40 something and I have no rudder pedals.

I will try this advice, because right now I never fly it because I crash too much when taking off 😕

It plagues every warbird. Not the maker's fault. It's the Asobo physics.

"Whee!, said the Avangel. (ok she didn't say wheee)...

I flew the Waco on Friday,  I was exploring old US Airmail routes.  It will try to kill you,  lol.  The Waco paints by Jan Kees Blom are very nice.  Really like his work.
