Editorial

As a big fan of aircraft like this, I was instantly drawn to trying this out as it freshened up an old classic and made sure it felt great to fly. This aircraft has been around since the early 70s but even that does not stop it being a whole lot of fun to fly around with. The full model is excellently designed and it flies expertly – but is it enough? Does it feel the way that it should? For me, it certainly does; as a fan of this model for many years, this is a brilliant rendition of a wonderfully created aircraft.

The Model

The model itself is one of the first major factors that got to me. It comes with three models in total, and each part of the fully animated models and liveries is that it manages to include many things that you would hope to se, but rarely do. From taxi and landing lights to a new smoke system, this does a wonderful job of putting together all of the little things that make an aircraft flight as impressive as it possibly can be.

The model carries that attention to detail perfectly, giving you something that is easy to remember and enjoy using. It includes major features and improvements such as opening doors, flaps, spoilers, thrust reverses and many other camera views included along the way to bring it all together and look the part.

Another specific part of the model is the fact that it makes sure it carries all of the hallmarks of the real thing so that it looks brilliant. The design team have really gone out of their way to detail and design the whole thing so that it manages itself in the correct manner as you move forward.

The Performance

The level of performance was another major factor that impressed me. Having been on this very model in the past I was really looking forward to trying it out in a simulator to see how it stacked up to the real thing. I have to say that I was hugely impressed with the attention to detail and precision along the way; it really does a wonderful job of selling the real thing and making it feel the way that it should.

The aircraft has numerous limitations such as turning speed and the like, but that is all relative to the real thing. As far as realism goes, this is the best take on the DC-10-30 that I have tried out for a flight simulator yet.
