As with many pre-war monoplanes (or bipes for that manner) it's got a lot of wing and flies pretty well, but not overpowered, especially with a MK 13 Torpedo slung beneath. The one I "flew", was possibly the same one you have there, a nice plane except for not much of a developed virtual cockpit.

Thanks for posting this! We are all hope'n that 4 years will have brought significant imprvements to the "Carrier Warfare" arena.

Well I had some more taking off with a torp loaded but have run into a snag again and I'm tired.

Oh, and yes. The virtual cockpit in this Devestator is big time crappy... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Vidar, that's a Dauntless, and the flaps seem to be modeled wrong. All three panels came down when flaps were selected on the SBD, not just the outer two.

Try the 1% planes for CFS2, the Wildcat and F4U-1D are especially good fliers for carrier practice.

Nope, that IS a Dauntless. My Bad http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif
Devastators have a 3-man crew, while Dauntless' has a 2-man crew.
That is not a download either. It's an AI converted into a flyable with a Corsair cockpit. They didn't put much accuracy in the AI's because you weren't suppose to get that close to see the inaccuracies I guess.

I love that picture of the Kingfisher. I guess it's a model plane, right? hard to tell it's so detailed. I think I still got the model of this plane I built 30 years ago. I also believe I read somewhere it is going to be in PF.

The Akagi has been found.

Go over to AVHISTORY.org and download some of the great 1% planes. A lot of effort has gone into making these fly well and realistically by people who cared! The F4U 1D is a sweetie, as is the several Hellcats and Wildcats. Some Virtual Navy and other ships are available as well over at SIM OUTHOUSE.

I know the stock flight models stink by comparison, but the 1% planes fly like, well, planes!

Yellonet,
I think what may have happened here is you are not talking about my particular screenshot link of me in the downwind in a Dauntless which I miss-quoted as a Devastator. That is a Dauntless... Check the rudder, the size of the cowel, and two crewmen.

And all PTO attack planes looked just like glasshouses... no wonder they opened the pit at low altitudes. The smell of sweat under South Pacific sun had to be unbearable. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

The units that attacked Pearl harbour were mainly light grey.
