Editorial

This take on the old F-86e Sabre is one of my favorite mods in some time, giving me a total remake of a classy and cool aircraft that just feels like so much fun to fly. Its daring style has been put together here using work by SectionF8 and many others, assembled by Wesam Baker. Wesam has done a marvelous job on making sure that this all looks the part, giving it something that really feels interesting and engaging.

One thing that I was a huge fan of when using this aircraft, however, was the increasingly charming nature of the cockpit. Each time I used it I would notice some little feature or kink that had escaped my attention before on pervious uses of it. What I did find with this, however, was that the Sabre really carried all of the little features in there such as working gauges and, most importantly, accurate placing.

A few hours of comparing images of the interior and exterior let me know quite quickly that this was a proper remake of the original. It’s accurate and in scale and the only things missing from this FSX mod is the features that are not possible to implement in a simulator at present.

What you will find though is that this does a stand-up job of giving you an easy way to control and manage the aircraft as it boosts around the skies. This package is a fine product to have on the basis that despite being for high-end military hardware this captures that look and feel with relative ease.

I was a major fan of this mod from the first time that I used it and would quite happily recommend this to anyone who wants to fly an F-86e quickly and with genuine accuracy. Flight dynamics and control is just about as good as you are going to get at the moment and the textures are spot on – in short, this makes the fun of flying an aircraft like this come to life in a way that many other mods struggle to ever find.

Want to fly military aircraft and enjoy their depth and style? Then be sure to pick this up! It’s a brilliant take on a fun and engaging piece of aviation history, and should help you fully appreciate how it looks and what the major bonuses of flying military can be!

Why doesn't the landing gear work properly? I am using this in FSX and would like to try it in p3dv3. Should work .

Is there aa fix for the gear in FSX?

Thanks, Don

Hello

i have no skin on this Aircraft ? what did i wrong ?

Rick Fri, 10 Mar 2017 22:41:44 GMT

Doe it not have a VC or did I screw the download

EdmeisterFri, 10 Mar 2017 13:26:01 GMT

Great plane! Only problem, the canopy is too dark. It makes it difficult to see from views right or left from inside the cockpit.

FerndogFri, 23 Sep 2016 20:58:17 GMT

I'm just wondering if the download of the day doesn't include everything else around it, like the luggage cart or cones or other objects, like other free ones that I've have downloaded before.

Retracts ? Thu, 07 Jan 2016 18:00:49 GMT

Landing gear retracts not working all of the time. They seem to cycle once or twice during a flight, and then stop working ? I have tried them from keyboard buttons and cockpit with the same results. Can you help me ?

It's a beautiful plane otherwise.

Thank you.

Jim
