Fokker DR1 on Phoenix 5.5k

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just fired up my Phoenix sim for the first time in many months. There were a bunch of updates available so I let it get updated to the current level 5.5k.

On startup it warned that the physics engines had been completely redone and models would fly differently.

No Kidding!

The Fokker DR1 now flies (or doesn't) just like my balsa and mylar one. Previously I could take off and land it just fine on the sim, now if you don't nail the throttle with full up elevator to get off the ground immediately, it tips forward onto its back, just like the one in my hangar. Landing is no picnic either, just like the one in my hangar!

Certainly seems more realistic.

Couldn't agree more! I love the behavior of the flying wing, very much like my FT blunt-nose Versa
