F-86

Post by Monterey56 »

Your F-86 was a great plane for P3D, any thoughts about making it for MSFS?
Your F4U is a great plane and a whole lot of fun to fly in MSFS.
BTW, thanks for the 25 percent discount last weekend.

There is a possibility but unfortunately we have nothing new to announce at this time.

Slayer thank you for the freeware F-86. This is a wonderful surprise which I just discovered yesterday. Not sure who did the conversion, but this is absolutely fantastic. My CC is ready when you and your team of talented developers decide to release the fully functional version, but until that time comes, this is certainly a welcome addition.
Thanks again.

We had nothing to do with it except to give the person permission to do the conversion from the old one. Glad you enjoy it.

Hey Steve,
It's approaching almost 10k downloads off of Flightsim.to, what do you and your team think about that? The external model is very nice and it doesn't fly too bad either for just a conversion mod. Why don't you guys make a payware version and offer it to us, so we can have a fully functioning cockpit? Not sure how hard that would be, but you guys are the pro's at developing great planes for us to use.
My thoughts and my thoughts only, is to forget about GA aircraft, there's way too many out there as it is, we need more cool vintage military airplanes.
Put it this way, you walk out to the ramp and have 4 choices.
1. Piper Comanche
2. Cessna 310
3. Corsair
4. F-86
Now which one are you going to want to fly?
Well, my first choice is the F-86, follow by the Corsair, the other two, I wouldn't waste my time or $$$.
A fully functioning F-86.......ASAP........would be great. Make it happen amigo.
Thanks and have a great day. I'm going to fly that mod F-86 around tonight and hoping someday.....SOON.....your website shows a F-86 for sale.

Now that would be very,...., well, GREAT news.
Also, as a side note, many of the Sabre's flying today, if not all, have modernized cockpits, all the old military junk has been removed, which is an option that hopefully will be incorporated. The non-functioning rear view mirror is not necessary and in my humble opinion and doesn't look all that good.
The DCS Sabre has all that, the time stamp from the Korean war, and is a lot of fun to fly, so if you want to fire guns, rockets and missiles, that's the place to go, but I want to fly your beautiful Sabre in MSFS over satellite imagery on some cross-country flights and of course MSFS has rules about armament incorporation. The modernized cockpits very of course, from Doug Matthews latest restoration, which is ultra-modern, the the Planes of Fame Sabre which is an old modernization.
I was flying the mod last night and really enjoyed it, but it really does need to be a complete package.
Oh, and going through the entire preflight, start up and flight, is where it's at, shutdown too.
Have a great day and thanks for the reply,
Ed

Hello Steve,
I just spent a couple of hours flying the F-86 in MSFS, and it flies really well. Just as well as the DCS version.
It's a flying classic and how lucky we are you authorized the conversion. Having a F-86 in MSFS is awesome and my #1 go to airplane, BTW your F4U is #2.
I am not a programmer, so I'm not sure what that would take, but get a functioning cockpit and release it asap.
Everything on the back burner until this F-86 is ready.
Warbirds are where it's at and you guys set the bar in FXS and P3D. Sadly, only one Warbird has been released since MSFS came out over 3 years ago, that being your F4U.
Have a great day,
Ed
