A Polish fellow that I work with did his army paratrooper training out of one of these.

Can fly nice and slow. I'm going to use this plane to practice my landings with a tail dragger.

I'm using the Yak for wheel landing practice. I have been able to land the Yak on my third flight, I can't say that for all the others.

I have uninstalled this sim more than once. This time I plan on giving it a better chance with my marginal flying ability and worse landings.

Default I do not think so

Dear POWER5, I absolutely do not agree with you when you define this airplane a "cute little thing", put up for sale in order to support the development of other aircraft. According to me this airplane has a very different importance especially for Russian players who know it the story will be proud to prove it. This airplane that seems to come from a walt disney comic strip wasn't very fast but its shape gave it a great maneuverability and in the hands of an experienced pilot was almost unbeatable in the maneuvered combat. Obviously later the Russian aviation fielded more modern aircraft and for this reason it was abandoned but remains an icon of the Spanish war and the first moments of the Second World War.

Another vote in AN-2 favor - it will surely be a great addition for resupply runs and insertion.

For DCS, especially the warbirds you got to have a decent setup. Buy good rudders, good joystick and base, throttle is not that important. It will be expensive but you can fly the planes like it was or is in real life. In addition you hardly can stop because good hardware is such a great feel.

Crosswind pedals, virpil or vkb base and stick and thrustmaster t16000 throttle is the perfect setup in my eyes.

I bought it more for novelty than anything, then I read a post complaining about some thing or other...no afterburner or it can't carry R77s...don't remember for sure, so I figured I'd take it up (for the first time) and see if the radar works.


Oh. My. Gosh. What a fun ride. This just became my stress relief; pure flying, no technology, no piccolo to play, just stick and rudder and seat of the pants with a silk scarf (I'm the capitalist, my wife is the rooskie) and a couple machine guns for spice.
