Very cool! Interesting to hear what they had to say about it - good stuff.

From what Dan & Ed said, everything they tried matched the figures they use in the real aircraft. One small discrepancy that Dan picked up on was the sensitivity of the rudder but, other than that, no other faults were mentioned by them. There are a few differences between the Mustangs that The Horsemen use and the variant modelled in the sim. DCS represents a completely stock aircraft where as there are a few changes made to the restored mounts that The Horsemen use. To begin with, none of the real pilots that we had try the sim (other than Nick Grey) could get the aircraft started. This is because, in most modern P-51s, the rear fuselage fuel tank has been removed. The Fuel cutoff valve is then removed ("it's just something else to go wrong") and the rear fuselage tank position is used as the fuel cut off position on the fuel selector. Stevo (Steve Hinton Jnr) also noticed, when doing his pre take-off checks, that the oil pressure did not drop when he fluctuated the RPM.

Over the last few months, we have had Steve Hinton, Dan Friedkin, Ed Shipley, Stevo (Steven Hinton Jnr), Nick Grey & Matt Nightingale try out DCS P-51 at our events at Duxford - All have been thoroughly impressed by the level of detail that has been achieved by the Eagle Dynamics team. It's hard to disagree with them Dan was flying for a good 15 - 20 minutes and conducted his flight in exactly the same way as he would in the real aircraft
thats interesting...what exactly did he say about the rudder behaviour?is it just too sensitive?did he try other curvature settings with it?
if so, did you/he find a setting which comes close to the real thing?
cheers

He flew it on Rocks Pc which doesnt have any curves set for the rudder but does for the other axis.

I wonder how he would have commented with a force feedback joystick: no curves required.

Fantastic Rob, thanks for sharing. Being in and out of the loop for a while, lots of things come and go, but VH only gets better and better every time. Great job, guys
