Editorial

Typically, scout aircraft my enemy!

I hate flying them most of the time as they just feel so pernickety and hard to manage at times. However, this remake of the old Bellanca Scout 8GCBC is something that immediately caught my imagination.

I’ve had the pleasure of sitting in the cockpit of one of these in real life with a trained pilot and was immediately impressed at how authentic this model was to the real thing. But, what were my major impressions? Was there anything else about this that peaked my imagination?

The Detail

This aircraft not only looks the way that it should, but it does a marvelous job of making it look the part in fs2004. Even on dated hardware that is lacking its original charm and class, this looks excellent. The details also include the introduction of some excellent additions such as Regular Scout, Tundra Tires, Floats and Ski editions so that you can use this in as many different situations as you possibly want.

Not only does this include great functionality features and the like, it also comes with four new liveries which are all made from scratch.

Add in the custom gauges and the range of new sounds and you have an overall attention to detail that is probably up there with the most enjoyable that we’ve seen in some time.

The Performance

The level of performance that this provides is equally impressive, too, giving you something that is quite engaging and interesting. Whilst it won’t fly at the same speed or strength as the real thing, this also comes with the unique intention of offering you something which is authentic. It does not try to match the real aircraft and go down that route but it gives you plenty of control and comfort over the flights you’ll undertake.

This means that you are trading in raw speed and power for the simplicity and control of command when flying – for many of us, that’s a pretty fair trade!

The designers, the Long Island Classics Design Team, have done a wonderful job with this and one that I would heartily recommend trying out if you want to go on a nice little adventure through the skies in an aircraft that is overloaded with character.
