History

Heinkel's He 219 Uhu is undoubtedly one of the most advanced aircraft to emerge from World War II. Conceived solely as a gun platform to serve as a defensive night fighter, the plane featured a bubble-top cockpit that was well forward, affording the pilot superb visibility. The cockpit was equipped with ejection seats, and was exceptionally well laid out. All controls were easy to reach and identify. Combined with the tricycle landing gear, this plane was truly a "pilot's aircraft" and was very easy to fly. It was stable and predictable, exactly what one would expect from a plane with the Uhu's intended purpose. The earlier versions were adequately powered by the Daimler-Benz DB 603A, and had good rates of climb and acceptable top speeds approaching 400 mph. However, later versions of the He 219 were much heavier, and because the more advanced, powerful engines were in short supply, these variants suffered in performance.

The He 219 was a superb and lethal gun platform and the later versions packed as many as eight cannon, including the potent 30mm "Schrage Musik" which fired upward into a bomber's belly at an oblique angle. These accompanied as many as six forward-firing cannon. The "Uhu" was absolutely devastating to any aircraft that came into range of its guns. This was accomplished through the use of radar, a new technology. Ground-based stations would direct the night fighter to the bomber stream, and when in range, the Uhu's radar operator would then take over and guide the pilot to within 100 meters of the target. The bristling antennae were ugly and added a lot of drag, reducing the aircraft's ultimate top speed substantially. But without the radar the plane would have been useless at night, and since the Uhu was still about 150 mph faster than the Allied four-engine bombers, this was really not a handicap. Some of the latest versions were used to track, hunt down, and kill the Mosquito bombers, which were a much more challenging quarry than the lumbering four-engine craft comprising most of the night fighter's prey.

In the end, the He 219 fell victim to bad decision-making and was too little, too late. But it was the most advanced aircraft for its time, signaling the shape of things to come.

Alexandro
Too bad. Invisible objects, taxi outside taxiways, traffic control does not direct to the gates, a mess in the terminals. Aircraft passing through buildings and colliding with each other. The look is good, well done, but impossible to simulate. These developers should test scenarios before selling. I regret buying.

Very nice Caribbean airport very well modeled with a great price!

This is definitely not 'plug and play'! you have to do some additional work to make it fully working, specially the "hover" part. The included PDF instructions its complicated at best. There is a bit of information here and there in the internet, but if you are looking for support to help you, Good luck!! You on your own. Otherwise its a great plane it fully uses all of MSFS assets and capabilities, its a pleasure to fly and it does hover to land although its a learning curve. This has become my main VSTOL and VTOL plane.
TECHNOBRAIN - FS ADD-ON COLLECTION NEW ISHIGAKI AIRPORT/MIYAKO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Daniel
Well that´s an old piece of scenery and although it should meet P3D5 requirements it does not at all. The exclusions don´t work and need to be reworked and the ground satellite image looks blurry. Even the runway does not cover the sat-image runway perfectly and a white stripe peers from the background. So even at the sale price, I can not recommend it.

At landing the sim stutters, freezes and so on; possibly there's some incompatibility with ORBX Alaska mesh.

The review knocking this for having no auto pilot despite the store description clearly saying it does is accurate. The only place that mentions the simple auto pilot is the flight manual where it says the A\P is ONLY for P3. NOT FSX or Steam! so that was very annoying! other than that I really like this helicopter! It flies so smoothly. Very easy to control and a real joy to fly. looks great too! The audio is a bit understated but i guess i can just turn the volume up. runs great on my Win 10 i7 3.3ghz 16GB Ram. Intel UHD 630 integrated GPU

Set up was easy - HOWEVER - software will installed 3 versions (for all the simulators), not just the one you are running. Its up to you to run the correct .exe for your sim. For example, it can and will run the FSX version on MSFS2020, and you will be none the wiser. SO be sure to click the correct one as different option menus are assigned to different sims. It took me a while to realise, that I was in the 'generic' version of this app instead of the MSFS one and for this reason I could not simply leave flight to continue live flying (as this is exclusive to MSFS2020 and the corresponding .exe which goes with it.) The interface is nice enough - but takes up far too much screen space making it look clunky and amateurish. Would be great if the software could loaded automatically on sim startup. Apart from these smallish gripes, the software runs beautifully smooth, and it is perfect for practicing the same scenario with the correct switches and settings to resume flying wherever you choose on a saved track. It does this almost instantly and I am extremely happy with how efficient this works for practicing situations that can be tweaked on the fly. It really makes learning the complexities of aircraft (like the 737PMDG / Fenix A320) a breeze to practice and master and to me it's a fantastic buy for this alone.

Excellent work! It'll be better if it has LODs to improve performance.
