Editorial

As far as awesome high-tech aircraft go, the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is one of the most impressive around. It has that really futuristic look to it with the large propellers at the side making it move more like a helicopter than anything else. It’s easy to fly, it’s classy in the overall design and it captures the identity of the real thing perfectly.

I’ve always been a fan of the unconventional nature of the Bell-Boeing V-22 and this remake of it really captured all of the feelings and styles that I would have expected to see in a model.

The model itself, by the way, is spot on. Even though it’s for FS2004 and is therefore a bit dated in terms of the latest innovations it scrubs up well and the depth of the textures and consistency in the design of the model comes together expertly.

The whole thing looks excellent and makes it nice and easy for you to understand what you need to do when flying this – as you can see, it’s not like your average aircraft model! That being said it takes only a short time to get used to and when you do it can be a whole new flying experience for you. The switching doors, cargo doors and moving engine all move in sync with what you are asking of the aircraft and this adds another nice little layer of realism and quality to the whole design.

The GMAX made model also looks excellent, making it easy to capture the overall look and feel of the aircraft whilst also ensuring the whole thing comes together. The air-dynamic nature of the aircraft also tallies well with the range of panels, sounds and lighting that was included. In short, this things manages to pack in all of the little details that make a traditional FS2004 model stand out so much. When combined with the in-scale and in-style model, you get a truly awesome package that really does the best that it can to capture the real look and feel of this aircraft.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see that this works in FS9 and FS2002, as well. It’s not perfect and you need to adjust things like the GPS section in the panel.cfg file yourself, but it definitely works. Overall, though, it works best when you use it in FS2004 as its fit for the native settings in that simulator instead of anything else.

The whole thing, though, ticks every box and makes sure that additions such as the flight dynamics are spot on. As well as the model carrying all of the hallmarks of the real thing, you’ll easily find that the flight dynamics and overall level of performance can go together perfectly whilst still capturing the depth and feeling that you would have been hoping for. Realism, performance and intricate detail in everything from the cockpit to the model itself – if you’ve ever wanted to fly one of these, this free mod might just be what you are looking for. The Osprey is certainly a very unique aircraft, but it’s increasingly easy to see why this might be such a huge favorite with pilots.
