This is the version 1.2 of the model which corrects some errors or problems, present in the former version. This version fully replaces the version 1.1. The aircraft was designed by the renowned Italian designer Stelio Frati in 1955, and originally built in Italy by Aviamilano then Aeromere and later Laverda. The Falco is currently sold in kit or plans form for amateur construction by the Sequoia Aircraft Company. The aircraft is single-engined, propeller driven and designed for private and general aviation use. Full package for FSX, model, custom panel and 3D VC, two liveries. Original source file design by Chris Lampard modified and improved with 2D panel and a working 3D VC by Massimo Taccoli, flight dynamics made by Dennis G. Seeley.

Installation:

  1. Extract the zip file in a temporary folder , You'll find the "Falco_V1.2_X" folder and this text file.
  2. Copy the folder "Falco_V1.2_X" to your FSX "SimObjects/Airplanes" folder.
  3. During the installation you may be asked to overwrite some files. This maybe due to you already having some of the files installed. Overwrite or not is to your decision.
  4. Double check everything before e-mailing me! Most of the problems I am asked to solve are due to flight simmers not having read readme files!

Having scratch-built and flown a Sequoia F8L (one of only 2 in Africa) for 7 years, I was looking forward to the FSX version. Our Commission against Aviation (CAA) in South Africa caused me to give up flying and at 76 years of age, I get some satisfaction from FSX.

I realize your software is free so please do not take the following comments as anything other than suggestions for improvement, should you so wish. The 2D cockpit display on my screen (Samsung 2232 GW) has gauges that are slightly egg-shaped across the screen. When in 2D the panning button does not pan - jumps left 90deg, right 90deg, rear 180, and nothing downwards. Also, the 2D cockpit does not show any canopy frame.

In both cockpits, the rev counter is stuck on 2500 in flight ( ie no change on throttle back). When increasing propeller pitch, the revs drop only by 200 but the engine sound increases as if the propeller has been put into a greater 'fine' state. The flight controls are extremely sensitive and nothing like the real airplane - I have to set sensitivity very very low within FSX and then sometimes there is no response.

As I said, these are observations, not complaints and if a later version is planned, these points may be taken into account. I am still enjoying flying the model notwithstanding the foregoing and look forward to any comments you may have. Regards.
