Speculation

IIRC the original client (with a limited budget) required a clickable cockpit for training purposes, not a flyable DCS module - the flying portion of their program would likely be done in the real aircraft with the RL flight hours eventually counting towards a PPL, etc.

AFAIK, having created the cockpit, avionics and 3D model, ED then got permission to add the flight model, etc. necessary to sell it to the public.

In some respects we are lucky to get the Yak-52 in DCS as, without the private client, ED would not otherwise have developed it for DCS. It's just a shame ED haven't been able to find/justify the resources necessary to bring it to the same level as the L-39/TF-52D in a timely manner.

To be honest, I really haven't flown it all that much. Maybe a few times when it was first released. I have always seen thread after thread complaining about it's incompleteness though.

YAK-52 work is still planned, but I don't have a time frame currently, the teams are still working from home and it has had a knock on effect for some plans.

As soon as I know for sure I will post news in this forum section.

thanks

In the interview a couple of days ago, the ED CEO mentioned a few projects, but the Yak-52 was not one of them (REF).

I thought we all paid for it no? At least I did, I double-checked and that money is definitely not on my account since a couple of years...

At this point, I'd say its a loss.
"Still planned" after several years on a relatively easy aircraft, doesnt instill confidence of completion.
Be honest and just say its not a priority, nor will it be. Remove it from E/A and sell as is.

Just do as I do: no more purchases from ED until the Yak is finished.

Yeah, for me it works exactly like this, no more purchases until the following are finished:

- F-5
- F-18
- F-16
- Yak
- Harrier
- Viggen
- F-14

it'll be a while, lol.
