Overview

Aircraft Factory is our budget line of products. So far only for FSX we created this line with one simple idea. Great simulated aircraft at a great low price. With realistic modelling they are aimed at the get up and go flyer whilst keeping the basic checklists and systems in place to keep all flyer’s happy. Ideal for your first payware for the Microsoft flight simulator series, and a great jump of point to the more systems intensive aircraft from the Wings of Silver, Wings of Power and ultimately Accu-sim aircraft.

The flight model was very carefully researched and we used the actual P-51H pilot’s training manual and technical orders to ensure our procedures and performance matched the real thing as closely as possible.

The P-51H differs from the P-51D primarily in performance. The procedures are identical in many cases to the P-51D, and aircraft handling is very similar, with the “H” model having greater agility and a higher roll rate due to its substantially lighter weight and larger ailerons. The fuel capacity is lower on the “H” model because the fuselage tank was made smaller to reduce the negative impact on weight and balance from the excess weight being so far aft from the centre of gravity. However, the “H” model has a range similar to the “D” model because its airframe has slightly less drag, and the aircraft weighs considerably less than the “D” model. The P-51H was conceived and manufactured during WWII and would have seen combat had the war not ended in September, 1945. It was developed on a time line that was roughly concurrent with that of the Focke-Wulf Ta 152, and its performance was similar to the German aircraft. However, the P-51H, with its top speed of 487 mph at 25,000 feet, was substantially faster than either the Ta 152C or H models, by at least 15 mph. In addition, the P-51H incorporated many of the automatic features common to late-war German aircraft. It used a Simmonds control unit to maintain a constant manifold pressure relative to throttle position, eliminating the need for the pilot to “chase” the throttle lever to maintain manifold pressure as the aircraft gained altitude. The supercharger switch from low to high speed was fully automatic, as were many of the controls related to the water injection and war emergency power.

Perhaps the greatest advantage the P-51H would have had over the Ta 152 is the fact that the Mustang remained a superlative dog-fighter despite achieving parity of power and speed with the Ta 152. If anything, the P-51H was a nimbler, better-handling aircraft than the P-51D, and its lighter weight would have allowed a tighter turning radius at high altitude than the German plane. In a dive or level flight, the P-51H was as fast or faster than any single-engine, propeller-driven Axis fighter ever built. The P-51H, although not well-known, was probably the finest piston-engined fighter to emerge from WWII in every respect and was likely the fastest propeller-driven aircraft in the world at the close of WWII.

REVIEWS
The P-51H is the war plane that never got into the war. The first P-51H flew in February 1945, just half a year before the end of WWII. In total only 555 of these “light weight” P-51’s were produced. The P-51H was designed by looking at the way Supermarine build their arcraft: light and agile. Weight loss was an important part of the design proces of this “Mustang”.

I use Xmapsy as the interface for my EFB Avplan. My EFB provides the Instrument Approach Charts that are required when piloting with FS2020. Xmapsy performs seamlessly in the background. Framerates are not affected. Together with a very responsive and helpful Developer, Xmapsy is just what the Doctor ordered for me, and maybe you as well!

Muy bonito, de verdad que sí, pero penaliza el rendimiento en 20-30 fps, con una RTX 3070. Very beautiful, really, but it penalizes performing about 20-30 fps, with RTX 3070

Great team! There were problems with the compatibility of the product and a third-party utility, but Sergey Gleba (the author of the livery from Paintsim) helped and the livery works perfectly!!!

After the first update (v1.02) this product is coming into it's own. Up from my previous review all issues seem to have been addressed that were reported. From my vantage point the only thing left that still needs work is the prop texture. I would give this a higher rating if it wasn't for that prop texture that I have to look at constantly when flying this bird. Others have reported the beacon light still shines in the cabin and external model cowling work still needs some adjustment but at this point this is a winner. If you want to see what the early Bonanza was like before the G36 this is it.

Very nice addition. I really missed this classic airport. I had to rename the addon folders so that they are loaded after Samscene3D Hong Kong scenery exclusion file as suggested by the author in the documentation. In my case I had wrong coastline shapes around the runway, missing airport parts but also road traffic on the apron. All those things are created by Samscene3D exclusion file, which is anyway needed. Renaming the two folders and adding a "z" at the start of the folder names fixed the issue. Both scenery addons work together like a charm.

It's pretty good. I bought the Helsinki Metropolitan VFR Scenery V3 XP from another site, and Vantaa isn't represented there, so this filled the gap nicely. The apron's concrete is randomly oilstained and there does seem to be some PBR on the tarmac areas as well as signage, and night lighting fits well with the Helsinki scenery. Still at the early stage of exploring Vantaa but so far it's a worthy buy.
