Editorial

Stylish and supreme, this highly detailed version of the Lancair for FSX made by Robert Christopher is worth downloading. The work by put into this by Mark Rooks is very impressive, helping to add even more to what was already a very appreciated and well-received model.

This helps to add new textures, a fresh new air file and new configuration files based on the Rooks Silva Design Group’ specifications. However, it lacks gauges and that obviously can make this quite a toughie to fly. While a bit of DIY work can help you to repair that, it’s time-consuming – but worth it, if you like the model enough. I found that in terms of performances it’s a very impressive piece of kit – it can bullet through the skies, climbing exceptionally fast without really suffering from any handling problems.

Fun, Not Fact

Some have complained it felt a little unrealistic, but I felt it was quite an enjoyable aircraft to try and take on once I got to grips with its rapid pace. It’s very fast and this means that it can take a bit of getting used to in terms of sensitivity – I spent way too much time just flying into things at first!

Once you get used to how it handles itself, though, this is a very fun aircraft to fly around in. Speaking to a friend, he said that it felt like more akin to a fighter jet video game than a true simulation, and I would probably need to agree. It’s certainly more fantasy than fact, put it that way.

That being said, if you enjoy hitting mad speeds and burling through the sky like a bullet, I would need to recommend giving this a shot. While it’s not really that much like the original – in that it feels a little "cartoony" in the way it manages itself – it’s still a fun little aircraft to have installed. It might not be something that you use all the time, and it could become a source of novelty rather than anything else, but it’s definitely a model well worth seeing how you can get to grips with how it handles itself.

Overall, I was pretty impressed with the aircraft. Just don’t pick it up and expect it to be a perfect replicate and recreation of the real thing: it’s certainly a bit of artistic license going on here!

Without gauges its hard to fly, IFR but overall this is one of the best light aircraft packages around. Well worth the download, climb rate is spectacular and handling is unsurpassed. 7/10 for overall.

I didn't care for this one at all. It handled like I was flying one of the Extra 300's and seemed very unrealistic!

Well I like it! Easy to install. Everything works. Very fast. Control's are touchy though.

super fun not real per say but more like an f22 in a video game the cockpit could use some work but this thing rocks hardcore EASY! FUN!!! kids will have a blast and it will make them want to take this game to the limit

Original plane rocked... This rebuild has a lot to be desired. Very unrealistic flight characteristics that do not even come close to handling of the real aircraft. Sorry, but a 2 is a stretch at best. :(
