Having never had any interaction with the MIL MI-2 in the past, I let curiosity win and tried it out. I found that immediately it was very hard to fly and really actually quite unaccommodating. Distressed, I decided to go and do a bit of reading into the way that the aircraft handles itself.

It turns out that rather than being a poor remake, I was just flying terribly!

A Wonderful Recreation

This is a dream to fly once you get used to its quirky nature. The general purpose nature of the aircraft means that I did expect it to be a little easier to fly, but it’s not the end of the world. Once I got used to how to take off with it and use the aircraft properly, I felt right at home in the cockpit of this model.

So, the first thing that I noticed when flying around in this piece of kit was the detail. The design, for FS2004, is excellent. It carries sharp and shiny designs that look outstanding and make it easier than ever to make the most of. It’s brilliant design and sharp detail means that, for the most part, the MIL MI-2 feels as good as an FSX model.

Perfectly Placed

I was hugely impressed by the work that the author, Vladimir Zhyhulskiy, was able to put into this project. It’s precise but with a purpose, not just adding in details to try and make it look better. It’s not a hollow design – the accuracy inside the cockpit reflects the work going on outside. The details on the texture with the shining reflection mixed in with the fully detailed and professional animations, too, is a great touch.

This flies as it should, with great attention to care in the way that the flight handles itself especially. It’s a great aircraft to fly around in and one that I had wished that I used in the past. Another major element of this aircraft, though, was just how much work has gone into detailing even features that you cannot use.

With such miniscule attention to detail, mixed with fresh and easy flying, it’s obvious why this is an FS2004 favorite. I’ll be using it a lot more in the future, with a comprehensive design and a welcoming sense of detail across the board making this easy to fly. If you want to try out something new, then this might just be the best option on the market for you!
