Default Which module should I buy?

I have 26 dollars. I actually learned how to fly the Su-25T and I really enjoyed it. But I think I need some modules to improve myself.
So I am thinking Su-33 and F-15C
Which one I should buy? I am looking for easy maneuverability.

Up to you and your interest. The newer modules have large learning curve, but worth it. The A-10C is great and trains you to have proper trim and aircraft control. Huge weapon load is fun. I'm currently using the FA-18 and loving it.

F-15/SU-27 are newbie friendly and you don't have to learn all the aircraft functions (start up, systems, etc..), but are still effective.

Wait two weeks, the Steam Sale should start around that date, and most likely ED will do a Sale around the same time .. and then purchase the Flamming Cliffs Package: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...ming_cliffs_3/

Most likely it will be discounted so that it will be within your budget

Cheers.

The F-15 is probably the easiest to fly out of the FC3 aircraft, although you need to be careful with it at lower speeds. The Su-27/33 are a bit better there.


There's also the matter of cockpit symbology. I'm more used to US cockpit layouts, which makes using the F-15's avionics infinitely easier than in the Russian planes. If you're used to the Su-25 though, you might find Russia systems easier.


The easiest fighter to fly at the moment is probably the F/A-18, although it's also a full DCS modules so the avionics are more involved than the FC3 planes. You'll need to spend more time learning and setting controls.


I'd recommend getting Flaming Cliffs 3 for multiple aircraft when its on sale as Rudel said. Possibly the F/A-18 instead if you want a more detailed plane and if the price drops down enough.

Wait till the sale drops and grab the whole FC3 bundle. Multiple aircraft included/best bang for the buck.

Hornet (and other full fidelity modules) is great but will spoil you with the full fidelity pit (IE: clicky buttons/switches). If you learn on that and try to go backwards to FC3 jets, your learning curve gets all FUBAR because you'll be sitting there trying to make heads or tails of keybinds and getting frustrated that you can't just click on what you want with your mouse to operate it. Starting on the "easy" jets from FC3 gets your mind trained to use key binds from the start and makes transitioning to something like the Hornet a breeze.

May I suggest save some more money and get the greatest FA-18C Hornet. You can do almost anything with it..... Well with the exception fly hovering.

Don't overlook the F5. Pretty straightforward layout and not overly technical to operate. Handles nicely and great on the cold war server if you want to get into multiplayer action. Also a fantastic looking aircraft ta boot.
