Because Rob Young and crew (RealAir Simulations) who did so well with airplanes for FLY/FLYII have created a sensational one for FS2002. The Marchetti SF 260. They have definately upped the bar in both virtual cockpits and flight dynamics. Very nicely working spins and sensational slips to landings. The reviews have been great on this one, which is really great because it was their first payware release into the world of MSFS which seems to have it's own well known and respected payware specialists. I do believe they'll get credit where it's due with this one!!L.Adamson

Agreed Larry. Rob and the gang have done an incredible job with the SF 260. I believe they have set a new standard for payware aircraft in the FS2002 world.Allen.

Larry,I think this really gives MSFS users a first-time taste of what we've been experiencing for some time from Rob & company within the confines of Fly! It's a beautiful aircraft, and above all - it's actually designed to simulate flight - what a novel idea! :-roll

There has been "great" moments in MSFS flight dynamic history..... such as the FSD Pilatus Porter which was released several years ago. You could actually "feel" the STOL capabilities of this airplane on a simulator. My mind was actually creating the illusion of "braking" and "lift". It did seem quite amazing! Yesterday, those same type of "feelings" were present in the "slip" I did to a landing in the SF260. Just a terrific combination of look, movement, and sound that went in harmony with my own controlling.Now honestly------ I actually do believe this SF260 "breaks" into a spin more realistically than the Citabria/Decathalons did in FLYII. I previously complained that it took too long before dropping a wing, which gave you much too much time to think about it. For test purposes yesterday, I did a tight pattern at low airspeeds in the SF260 with a bit of cross-control to line up for final. I was promptly rewarded with a quick un-recoverable spin into the ground from approach height. Very effective!!L.Adamson
