The Winjeel was the Royal Australian Air Force's primary piston trainer from 1955 to 1975 and is a two-three seat, low wing, fixed undercarriage tail dragger. The aircraft is powered by the 9 cylinder Wasp Jr radial engine (as used in the Beaver). The Winjeel replaced the Tiger Moth and Wackett aircraft and was itself replaced by the NZAI CT-4 Airtrainer.

During the Vietnam war America's use of Forward Air Control (FAC) aircraft had proved to be a great asset so in 1969 four Winjeel's were modified for use in this role by the addition of a smoke grenade dispenser and upgraded communications equipment. FAC Winjeel's were not used in combat but were used in training. In 1994 the FAC Winjeel's were replaced by Pilatus PC-9 turboprops which brought an end to the Winjeel's nearly 40 years of service.

A total of 62 Winjeels were produced from 1954 to 1958 and delivered to the RAAF and according to the Australia civil aircraft register there are still 30 Winjeels registered.

Interestingly, for a trainer, the Winjeel was fitted with three seats. Both the RAF and RAAF had specified three seats for their post WWII trainers. The theory being, it would be possible to train two pilots at once, one being instructed whilst the other watched. This theory did not last long.

V1.21 adds the following:

  • 4 new repaints
  • NX107PJ US version of VH-OPJ (A85-439)
  • A85-404 modern orange highlights
  • A85-444 modern camo
  • A85-364 prototype paint on vintage model

FEATURES

  • A total of four variations: Modern, Vintage, FAC Modern and FAC Vintage. There are two basic models, Normal and Forward Air Control (FAC) which are fitted with additional avionics and smoke grenade dispensers. Each model comes in vintage and modern versions. Modern versions have a modern transponder and comms radio fitted as well as some modern gauge updates.
  • Highly detailed model. Fully modelled aircraft including the engine and the unique engine bay petals. The Winjeel has over 320,000 triangles however new coding techniques keeps the framerates as high as possible.
  • Animation Manager (shift+3) controls not only animations and preferences but also contains interactive checklists, full pilot's handbook and tutorial.
  • In game help. Middle mouse click on any item to open the Animation Manager to the correct page with a full explanation of that control.
  • Camera control. Adjust the default eyepoint within the game using the Animation Manager. Note: This function should not be used if you are using EZ-DOK or some other camera utility.
  • Interactive checklists display red when any item needs attention. In addition clicking on the camera icon next to each item will move the camera to that item (this is not compatible with ezdok camera utility, disable ezdok to use the camera icons in the Winjeel). You can also set the Winjeel to highlight the mouse zone(s) for each item to aid in learning the aircraft controls.
  • Exterior inspection. Using the interactive checklists you can take a virtual tour of the exterior of the aircraft. You can place chocks, remove protective covers and even add fuel and oil by directly clicking on the aircraft itself.
  • Three pilot models are available, vintage male RAAF pilot and modern male and female.
  • Custom sound system. The Winjeel bypasses the default FSX sound system. This allows the engine sounds to more accurately simulate changes to manifold pressure and engine RPM which is impossible to achieve with the FSX sound system. While the custom sounds do provide better control of the engine sounds the disadvantage is that the sounds do not respond to eyepoint position. The Winjeel can be set to use the default sound system if the user requires or prefers.
  • Automatic mixture control. The mixture control has four settings only, Idle/Cutoff, Auto Lean, Auto Rich and Full Rich. When set to Auto Lean or Auto Rich the mixture is automatically adjusted to provide the best air fuel mixture ratio.
  • Enhanced flight dynamics. Custom coding provides enhancements beyond the capabilities of the standard FSX flight dynamics. These include realistic  prop torque effect, wing drop at stall, better spin characteristics, elevator lift due to prop wash, more controllable taxiing speed as well as a free castoring or steerable tail wheel.
  • Steerable or free castoring tailwheel. The Winjeel tailwheel has a switchable tailwheel locking mechanism that allows the tailwheel to be steerable (for take-off and landing) or fully free castoring (for parking).
  • Smoke grenade dispenser. FAC models include a smoke grenade dispenser and armament panel. Smoke grenades can be launched to mark strategic targets and they work in multiplayer too.
  • Carburettor icing modelling. The Winjeel will model the effects of carburettor icing dependent upon temperature, humidity. This is different and in addition to the impact icing that FSX seems to model.
    • Engine damage and wear modelling. Four settings of engine realism are available:
    • OFF - no engine damage or wear beyond normal FSX behaviour. Use this setting for simple, no worries flying.
    • PERF ONLY - abnormal engine temperatures and pressures will affect the performance of the aircraft only.
    • PERF + ICE - as above but carburettor icing is modelled.
    • FULL - as above but records engine wear. This can lead to engine failure if the aircraft is mistreated.
  • Custom fuel consumption coding provides accurate fuel consumption rates.
  • Engine autostart routine. Press the FSX auto start key command and the Winjeel will automatically step through the pre-start and start procedures.
  • Failures modelling.  You can set a range of programmed failures beyond the normal FSX ones to test your emergency procedures skills.
  • Controller calibration. The Winjeel uses custom coding to control the throttle and mixture controls. You can use the control calibration page of the animation manager to setup your controller. With the throttle you can set the indent position (set for 33 inches MAP at sea level) and with the mixture you can set the range of each zone for IDLE CUTOFF, AUTO LEAN, AUTO RICH and FULL RICH.
  • In game weight and fuel loading. Use the Animation Manager to adjust the fuel, oil level and weights of the aircraft directly in game without needing to use the FSX menus. Centre of gravity will be automatically calculated for you.
  • Rain effects. Like most aircraft from Ant's Airplanes the Winjeel includes canopy rain effects. This includes working windscreen wipers.
  • Canopy window transparency. Easily adjust the level of transparency of the canopy windows directly in game.
  • Structural icing effects appear on the canopy windows and wing, tail and elevator leading edges.

Demo version available. A demo of the vintage FAC model is available. The airspeed, altimeter and vertical speed indicators and engine wear modeling are inoperative in the demo. The demo includes the smoke grenade model so for multiplayer use all players can download the free demo to view smoke grenade deployments.

Ants Airplanes are very high quality and well detailed. This Winjeel is just outstanding on all counts. Rivet counters will revel in the fine details on display and the flight model won’t disappoint either. Not much to say beyond “wow”. If you like unusual aircraft that perform and look well, then this should be something to seriously consider picking up on sale or not it’s worth every penny and more.

Based on experience with FSX Steam 3.2 GHZ i7 16gb ram 512UHD integrated GPU.

Can't speak highly enough of this rendition of the Winjeel (or any of Ant's planes).

Excellent textures, high framerate, systems & switches well simulated, great manual accessible in-flight/on-ground, sublime flying characteristics, that radial engine sound (turn up the bass) all create a wonderful sense of immersion and is a delight to fly.

If you love A2A's standard of simulation the you'll love this.

I wouldn't have thought it possible for Anthony Lynch to equal his Trojan T28 masterpiece, but he very nearly does it with with this wonderful Winjeel. Beautifully modelled inside and out, with real system depth and full of innovative features, especially the custom sound system which really brings the engine alive - and all of this at high and fluid frame rates. But don't take my word for it - try the demo. What's more it's very easy on the pocket, with excellent customer service. My advice is, buy this and the Trojan now before Mr Lynch comes to his senses and starts charging what they're actually worth!

ON-NEXT DEVELOPMENT GMBH - SIMSOUNDS 4.0 MSFS P3D4-5 FSX
Lukas
Im Prinzip ganz gut. Aber seit langem nicht mehr gepflegt und mittlerweile funktioniert auch der Support nur noch mangelhaft (Automatische Antwortmail: Büro geschlossen, Wiedereröffnung erst in 4 Wochen). Stimmpakete zu teuer für den Basispreis.
REALWORLDSCENERY - KODIAK ALASKA PADQ P3DV4
Georg
Die englischsprachi-
gen Rezensionen sind sehr aussagekräftig; ich möcht noch ein paar Aspekte in deutscher Sprache hinzufügen. -
- Die manuelle Installation ist etwas gewöhnungsbedür-
ftig, aber letztlich gut machbar mit etwas Wissen um das Handling zusätzlicher Szenerien. Nach dem Download mehrerer Files entpackt man sie, integriert sie in das P3D4-Hauptverze-
ichnis und installiert dann über den Szenery-Button von P3D manuell (Readme-File). Es gibt also keinen automatischen Installer. - Die Szenerie erfaßt geschätzte 20% der Hauptinsel Kodiak in deren Nordost-Ecke. Weitere Inseln des Kodiak-Archipel-
s sind nicht enthalten - das wäre bei der Größe des Archipels denn auch etwas viel verlangt. - Die Stadt Kodiak ist ebenso wenig integriert wie deren Kleinflughafen PAKD. - Die Farben sind teilweise etwas überzeichnet, was aber (für mich) kein wirkliches Manko darstellt. - Die Szenerie ist etwas für den Liebhaber von Flügen abseits der Hauptrouten. Man kann in die vielen Fjorde hineinfliegen oder einfach über die Bergwelt dahinschweben, oder den Küsten folgen - je nach eigenem Geschmack. Das Tool ist besonders als Special Offer sein Geld wert. - Diese Kodiak-Szenerie stellt eine willkommene Ergänzung zu den Flughäfen Anchorage und Fairbanks dar; man hat damit diverse Ziele im amerikanischen Bundesstaat Alaska. - Ergänzend sollte ich schreiben, dass ich persönlich Kodiak nicht kenne; meine vorstehenden Beschreibungen geben also keinen Bezug zur Realität, sondern nur meinen persönlichen Eindruck wieder, der aber recht positiv geprägt ist.

Der Flieger ist sehr schick und fliegt sich echt gut. Man merkt natürlich, dass der Flieger noch nicht fertig ist, allerdings sind die Entwickler auf einem sehr guten Weg. Mir gefällt der Flieger sehr. Ich gebe allerdings nur 4 Sterne, weil das LNAV bei mir immoment irgendwie nicht will. Ansonsten bin ich zu frieden.

FS2CREW - FS2CREW: FENIX A320 EDITION MSFS
Wolfgang
Ich fliege schon seit jungen Jahren Flugsimulatione-
n. Und möchte hier mal eine deutliche Kaufempfehlung aussprechen. Diese FS2Crew Software hat deutliche Schritte nach vorne gemacht. Nicht weil sie komplexer ist. Sondern weil das Bedienen erleichtert wurde. Dabei möchte ich aber nicht seine Vorgänger schmälern. Denn die hatten auch eine schöne Komplexität. -
Ich habe nur einen Flug in der Buttonkonfigura-
tion dieser Fenix-Version gemacht, um dabei einige Einstellungen zu machen die einem diese Software bietet. Scho-
n beim 2.ten Flug bemerkte ich, dass es richtig cool zur Sache geht. Nach dem Einsprechen der Befehle in die Software, merkte ich das die Software mit einem arbeitet und nicht gegen einem arbeitet. In Verbindung mit Fenix ein Top-Produkt, und zugleich eine Traumpaarung. Klare Kaufempfehlung 5. Sterne. P.S.: Vergesst nicht darauf zu achten, dass die Soundtreiber aktuell sind. Das hätte ich bald übersehen. Sonst läuft nix ;)
