I wrote in the not too distant past about having my first experience in a Canadair aircraft – well, this was my second! The design is emblazoned all over the model, but I was really here to try out the brilliant features put into the creation of the Argonaut North Star V2. This package for FSX and FS2004 works perfectly in both, and does a great job of representing each of the simulators with the utmost level of detail and control. This package in particular does everything it can to start winging together the right setup and the right style, ensuring that you can easily juggle the flight in the right manner whilst also accommodating the correct format.
Moreover, this package does a great job of accommodating for anyone who is unsure of what to do. It gives you plenty of information on how to fly this bi monster, ensuring that you can have no issues in getting used to the North Star and the rather unique way that it flies. This will ensure that you are going to be using a popular aircraft which is used regularly by the RCAF and big airlines within Canada, showing its global reach.
However, the aircraft itself is the thing worth flying; as far as Canadair brands go, I would suggest this may be one of the best to carry that logo. It’s a brilliant aircraft and in this set you will get access to most versions of the aircraft. There are plenty of choices for the aircraft that served from the 1950s onwards with such incredible distinction.
The entire shape and design of the aircraft can be a little bit off-putting at first, but once you get used to that you are left with access to an aircraft that really represents power.
One thing that hugely surprised me was the power of the engine. Making the most of a Merlin-engineered masterpiece and the Douglas DC-4 as its template, Argonaut were left with a mythical beast on their hands!
I truly love this aircraft, it’s just so much fun to fly and to enjoy messing around with. As far as having fun can go this entire program can be a unique and entertaining aspect, ensuring that you can get to grips with an aircraft that had a career spanning more than half a century – if you want to pay your respects, you can start here!
