Like 109 with lower power engine

Its quite old aerobatic machine but it has it soul and i love it It still could do some advanced aerobatic figures ( +6, - 3 G) with maxiumum speed 300 km/h. I really love to fly it beacuse it looks like warbird.

The Jungmann and the Jungmeister have always been on my favorite biplane list ... you lucky ba$^#rd (at this point in time Tailspin no longer likes Kwiatek).

I've never flown a Bucker but I have flown a Stampe. Next time your out flying drop in and we can swap rides.

I can’t speak for COD … after messing around with it for three weeks all it did is frustrate me so I removed from my hard drive, It felt like a “cockpit sim” and not a “flight sim”. I’m going to wait for to the sequel to come out before I mess with it again; I’m really looking foreword to it.

I played IL2 for about 10 years and my favorite planes were the Curtis P-40, Brewster F2A Buffalo, Spitfire CW, Yak-9, and LA-5. They flew like real aircraft (in my opinion) should fly. Every one has there favorites … to bad the Hellcat flew like a dead goose, but then again it’s only a game.

I do play ROF off line and absolutely love how the planes feel, what a great game and getting better all the time, I’m happy to say I own all the planes and add-ons.

Aww. I began modelling a Juengmann in 3ds max. Some good photo's would be well appreciated. It's truly a beautiful bi-plane. I wonder if you would have access to a 181?

Yup RoF is great for feel (not that I'd actually know, having only ever flown as self-loading freight in boring old passenger jets). There is the feeling of the Gotha - particularly with a little turbulence - that it only stays airborne through self-belief, and needs constant reminders that the although props face backwards, it is supposed to be flying forwards. Or the Fokker Dr.1, which you don't so much fly as engage in an endless battle of wills with over which direction it is going, and which direction it should be pointing in at the time. Even the aeroplanes that have the decency to behave themselves most of the time (i.e. the Sopwith Dolphin, unless you get it into a spin, which isn't that difficult) have a cunning plan involving killing you on landing instead.

exhaustive list of my taildragging:

Piper cub, inc the Mil version (forget the designation)
Super cub
Citabria
Aeronca Mil version L-3
Tiger Moth
Stearman
Emeraude
Percival prentice
WoW … A great list, what’s a Percival prentice?

The Mil version of a Piper J-3 Cub is L-4.

A friend and I have an Aeronca L-3. The Aeronca started out as a Model 65 TC "Defender" (pre WW2) The Mil versions were initially know as O-58 (observation) and then L-3 (liaison) nick named the “GrassHopper”. The Aeronca L-3 is a rare aircraft, not too many of them out there.

Imagine having to put up with Tailspin for the last 10 years...

I am gonna get out there one day TS, and we are going flying.



It's good to have real pilots in your squad.

I've learned a lot, though I'd hate to admit it to him...
