Sorry guys! May I ask what use can be done of such an aircraft in a combat flight simulator? Just curious...

I'll try to fix it, I am a beginner modder so I have to wait)))

A begginer, I would not have thought so. 8)  Apparently floatplanes are a really difficult thing to take on so every credit to you for having a go, she is still a beauty. ;)

Great little plane!!!!!.Manual take-off works as long as you push the stick forward at 50k to get it up on the step than pull back and lift off is around 110k or so.

Thank you for that dona, I cannot use the stick at the moment and using the keypad would suck. ;)

In the real world you just do not climb into a combat aircraft, you train first, aircraft like this can be used in campaigns to replicate your progress from novice to ace. ;)

They are also good eye candy in missions as they can help to give a feeling for the world around you at a particular time and place.

And the most important reason of all is they are just fun to fly, who wants to shoot at things all the time.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Interesting point of view! Training, civil flights... I never thought that! Actually you make me recall there were civil flights at Pearl Harbour on Dec. 8, 1941, for instance. Thanks for your kind answer.

Awesome work Cant   ;D ;)

Hopefully Gio wont mind your works being in the Vega thread

They do have that same similar appeal from that era  :D ;)

Maybe perhaps another floatplane master in the makings :D

Didn't know about the Vega that served in the RAAF Cool

Thanks greatly Gio and Cant.
