In my case I removed the 285Hp Housai and replaced with 400hp M14PF (A common mod in the US and Aus) Chang doesn't have an inverted Oil/Fuel system like the 52. That coupled with fully retractable main gear and fully flushed riveted skin makes the Chang a whole lot faster, way better ROC and way better sustained turn performance. I get 180Kts IAS on the deck at max power. 52 Roll rate is better but thats about it. Chang handling is imo significantly better wrt Control Harmony and Max lift "on the buffet' type flying. The depth of the Buzz and buffet in the Chang is great in comparison to the Knife edge buffet handling in the 52. The extra 40 litres internal fuel in the Chang makes X country quite reasonable. Cockpit is way nicer in the Chang with a stick that sits comfortably at knee height rather than at Chin height as it does in the Yak.

Also equipped with "Shinning Dragon MK I" Light strike fighter site specially developed for the Multi Role Chinese Aircraft (MRCA) to swat pesky Yaks ... Outer ring subtends Yak at 500Feet range

Why does the ADI have the dirt side up?

Will be interesting to see the Yak-52 in DCS, as I own one in real life - fly it in aerobatics, formation, and formation aerobatics.

Video below is from the Fall, 1st 2 elements are me flying right and left wing during formation loops (I normally lead), 3rd sequence is flying line abreast (hard), 4th is a multi-figure airshow sequence with me as lead, you can see wingmen in formation mirrors.

The -52 is an excellent sportplane, an effective trainer, affordable, easy to maintain, tough as nails, and the sound from the Vedenyev M-14P is unbeatable.

Condor said you wanted to come fly with us sometime?... what happened?! Text or email me.

Cheers, Limey

Hey Limey!
