Editorial

I’ve spent a lot of time using the I2D Project Groups stuff in the past, and have always enjoyed the level of attention and detail that they give the aircraft they provide. Always very on point with the overall makeup and creation of the model, they rarely let you down with the quality of the dynamics and the overall power of the aircraft, either. This package, a recreation of the B1B Lancer, gave me all the help I needed to see just what this kind of aircraft would bring to the table, given its differences to many styles I’m used to!

This was created for use with FS002 and FS2004 and I must say that it really brings up the level of quality that both simulators would have allowed back in the day! The package that I first used, the Base Package, came equipped with the model itself and one livery as well as a whole new range of changes and effects.

The first thing that I noticed, however, was the wholesale change in the animations and the way that the aircraft worked form the afterburners to the wing sweeps and bomb bays, everything can come to life on this and give you a nice taste of what this kind of awesome power would bring to the party.

You even get the contrails, which I thought was a really nice touch. However, the effects are only one part of the impressive nature of its presentation; the class and style of the B1B Lancers model was something I was very impressed with. Having got some pictures to compare it against, I found that this was something that matched all of the pictures of the real thing and this made it a whole lot easier to tell me exactly what I was using.

It’s always nice to have that realistic nature to the aircraft that you use and I felt that this was one of the well-crafted classic aircraft I’ve come across in a little while. The inside, though, was full of some very useful features that had been made more or less to be used in here like a virtual cockpit and custom designed panels to authentically match the cockpit of the real B1B.

However, I did find that the package did not seem to have as much compatibility for a Force Feedback stick as was noted in the notes in the package. This was a bit disappointing, as it just resulted in the aircraft staying with its nose up and becoming more or less unusable. This was something that was a bit of a problem for me at first but after a bit of adjustment, I was able to enjoy what is a very dedicated and authentic recreation of a very impressive and high-end piece of hardware.

I have to say, then, that I was very impressed by this package and all that it brought to the table; it was unique and it was clear, making it a real favorite of mine anytime I fancy using something a bit more unique to your usual aircraft.

Re this AC in FS 2004...all of the above. Does have a couple of paint schemes and since it won't fly, would make a decent static display.

There are fixes for this aircraft. I'm not sure if this website has them or not. I mean no disrespect to this website but flightsim.com is the only place I know of that has fixes for it. Look around and see, I know they're out there.

No paint, doesn't fly worth a hoot. No good.

I changed my takeoff fuel levels to less than 10%, which allowed the plane to takeoff. After that though, it yawed badly and rolled over. I never got it higher than a couple hundred feet.

Will take off with full afterburner but skids on runway and yaws out of control right after takeoff. Maybe incompatible with FS2004?

I got it to takeoff but the could not controll it above 250 mph
Pro MemberBoar05Fri, 21 Jul 2006 23:57:07 GMT
Will not go faster than 172mph on takeoff roll, won't get airborne in FS 2004. Other than that it seems a pretty good model.
