This is a brand new simulation of the last purpose-built dive-bomber used by the U.S. Navy.

Designed to replace the Douglas SBD Dauntless divebomber, the new Curtiss SB2C had a difficult birth and a tough early career. Structural weakness, poor performance and significant handling issues all led to inevitable delays for the production model to enter service.
The challenging handling issues were never really resolved and the aircraft earned many nicknames including ‘The Beast’. However, in the hands of experienced crews, the ’Helldiver’ became a formidable anti-shipping attack bomber and sub-hunter, contributing greatly to allied successes in the Pacific theatre.

The flight dynamics in this unique simulation have been engineered to give a challenging, authentic flight experience based on contemporary reports and pilot notes.In experienced hands, the SB2C became one of the most effective weapons employed in the Pacific war and featured in just about every major battle.

Every detail of this amazing machine has been authentically modelled in perfect detail. The rear gunner's cockpit boasts a full animated gunner and twin machine guns, housed in a retractable "turtledeck" which is also fully and authentically animated. Every switch, knob and lever in the pilot's cockpit is functional thanks to many unique animations.

Special "stutter-start" prop effects and sounds simulate the Wright Cyclone engine perfectly and the cockpit includes all the accurate switch procedures for authentic engine starts.

The bomb doors open and bombs will swing down and drop when dive-bombing. The high fidelity exterior model includes the Helldiver's unique dive flap system which has been modelled and functions to a high degree of accuracy. The wings fold revealing detailed working mechanisms and there is a working tail-hook for carrier landings.

There are two brand-new USN pilot figures with animations that include oxygen masks which are put on at altitude and you can toggle the rear gunner action that swings the gunner round and down to man the guns.

This is the most authentic rendition of this venerable USN dive bomber available and will provide many hours of challenging, simulation pleasure.

YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS
Chandler
Updated review for V1.1 Really fun little jet. Handles really nicely and a joy to fly. Become one of my main choices because its so versatile. It takes a little bit of adjusting to the landing but it only takes a few tries and becomes natural. This update added parking breaks which was a great addition and great to see that community feedback was listened too. Currently the oxygen system also doesn't sem to work. The gage is there but you can't turn it on or off however it's more a candy feature but given how "minimal" the cockpit is, I really would love to see that added. The screen has 2 modes, the G3X which is nice for basic VFR flying especially if mostly use the default aircraft aviaonics but you also have the MGL with 3 options of display, which when activated show smoke status,any aerobatics and the G force shows and it also helps keep heading in aerobatics by showing the ideal line to keep on track.I also love the fact that when you retract the landing gear, you can see a little bit below the plane, which can be helpful to look quickly at both to see where lined up but also because it's easy to check if gear is down. I have bought way to many planes for this simulator and for the cost, enjoyment and difference this is a must buy in my opinion and one of the coolest planes we have so far with the only really similar plane being the Cri Cri jet version which I find this different enough (being small and jet powered is basically where the similarities end) that I wouldn't say if already have the cri cri and enjoy it not to get this. If torn between the two, I'd have to say I'd pick this as you will have a blast if pick this up and you can count on Y-Sim to keep up the great work. Keep it up Y-sim and I look forward to seeing what the updates and future products you bring to the simulator ???? P.S the discord is a really amazing space and you will find any help or answers to questions you may have there!
MFSG - SAGA AIRPORT RJFS 2021 FSX P3D3-5 MSFS FS2004
Giuseppe
It's not a bad airport, but the MSFS version is obviously an upgrade from FS2004 that was then upgraded to FSX, and then to P3D. The developer made an effort to add a few bells and whistles like PBR, but it doesn't hold up very well to MSFS standards. I hope it gets updated with better weathering, possibly a modeled interior at least for the jetways (which at least are custom, so there's that), better landside area and surrounding, and by the love of god, please improve that NAMC YS-11 model, because it really doesn't do justice to such a historical aircraft. While at the moment it's not worth the asking price, IMHO, I think with a bit more work it could be.

hi i love the mesh but Pokhara and the surrounding mountains has a lot of bugs, airport surfaces has wrong elevation and Mt fishtail and the annapurna range completely disappears if flown near.

Purchased it on his store. A great rendition of an interesting Aussie airport. Really captures the character and essence of the region. Can't beat the price, either.

Really fun little jet. Handles really nicely and a joy to fly. Become one of my main choices. It takes a little bit of adjusting to the landing and there seems to be quite a bit of bounce while slowing and you have breaks but not parking breaks. Currently the oxygen system also doesn't work.

2 things please, Can you please add some wing flex? Can you please let livery creators be able to paint the winglets? Thank you, other than that it's great!
FSDREAMTEAM - LOUISVILLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Christopher
This is a must have if you love Cargo flights, UPS especially in this case. Quality is as good as their KMEM for FedEx. What I love about FSDT, is that they always add fun stuff! KMEM was the fully designed Tower; For KSDF, something took me by surprise with GSX: whenever you unload cargo (or load) instead of having the default trucks to pick it up, you have a UPS guy that will take your cargo and place it at the storage next to it! Really fun touch, makes cargo flights more fun.

This scenery is very worth the price of 12 euro, New york have tons of detail building and airports, the image scenery that it comes with is great and cover so many area, The image scenery covers all of the north east scenery so if you wanna to Denver then this is the scenery for you, But it only comes with New york city airports so keep that in mind, overall i would give this scenery a 5/5 star
