As someone who wants to fly aerobatic planes, I am very exited for this. Can't wait to try it out!

Me too. It might be good, it might be crap. But hey when it’s on sale or it’s cheap enough to buy off the bat, I’ll prob have have.

I just hope that all the current 3rd parties don’t make this genre a priority over military aircraft that they’re so well known for. I hope with these new projects DCS actually bring in more 3rd parties that maybe are more inclined towards those kind of projects as well as mil. It’ll make DCS a fuller, well rounded and more exceptional sim for more people to enjoy.

ED just needs to sort out that ATC! Amongst other things. Lol

It really shouldn't. DCS' scope is simply too small to make for an effective civilian sim as is the case with X-Plane and FSX. One civvie release that's obviously aimed at recouping a little funding back from the effort they put into what's literally a testbed probably won't herald an influx of 737s and A330s.

That said, it'd be nice if someone were to make a pack of civvie aircraft to serve as NPCs and traffic.

I like the CE2. Having flown Pitts IRL, I think DCS is the best simulator to simulate gyroscopic maneuvers, tumble rolls etc (provided the FM is up to par).

So I will definitely buy it, as long as the MiG-21 starts to get some proper progress.

I think best move will be this one instead CE2... It is military trainer, like Yak-52... more sense, my opinion.

I don't care what people think, the Christen Eagle II is worth buying to me. It is $30, full fidelity, and offers more diversity as a new aircraft into DCS than a Tu-22 or A-6. (Don't get me wrong, they're both good but so classified.) 3rd party developers should be able to decide on whatever module they want to make, and that is what makes them so unique than the community. Places like hoggit have thrashed this, but in any case, this module will get the same criticism as the Spitfire got to its performance...

It's not the best plane, that I will admit. But if you had to choose between the Christen Eagle II and the Westland Wyvern, would you really pick the 2nd option? Think about it...

Not happy with this choice. Especially given developers came from something like the Mig21. This choice is a complete surprise. Why they chose such a Niche within an already Niche community coming from a Big iconic seller like the Mig21 is beyond me. If this is a mere by product of an official contract ( Like the Yak 52) thats a different story, but im sure this would have been clarfied if it was the actual case,

IF any Piston aircraft I would have expected a Zeke or a Corsair ( which they had wanted to go for)


Just not into in pure civilian aircraft, but there are plenty other sims that are dedicated for civilian aircraft.

Sure as a user Im in not in not in an actual position to tell developers what choose to develop but I can still protest with my wallet, as they won't be seeing a purchase on this module from me.
