My new favorite ride! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif I liked it when AEP came out a few years ago. It seems more docile now...not prone to spins. Not so fast, but easy to trim due to rudder and aileron trim. Not so easy to land though..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Visibility is tough with the upper wing, but after you get used to it, its OK. Online I have only gotten one kill, but it is tough. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif There has been some discussion to the Breda 12.7mm weapons and their lack of killing power...you definately have to be patient to get kills, it seems.

Is there any Falco "Aces" out there?.....who wish to share their experiences http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I probably have the largest score count on turning ON and OFF the cockpit lights just to watch them when flying at sunset or sunrise. Best guage lighting in the sim ... at least pre Pe-2.

I used to enjoy the challenge of keeping this plane under control when in a tight turn fight.

Hmmm never tried that. I now fly it with no HUD...it helps with immersion factor. All guages are so easy to read and everything is modelled. Nice work http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It is fun to fly and a match for the Gladiator... But once those Hurricanes come after you... Let's just say that Fiats like exploding. More than any other fighter in fact http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif
