The ERCO Ercoupe is an American low-wing monoplane aircraft that was originally manufactured by the Engineering and Research Corporation (ERCO) shortly before World War II. Several other manufacturers continued its production after the war. It was designed to be the safest fixed-wing aircraft that aerospace engineering could provide at the time.

The Ercoupe was the first aircraft certified as "unable to spin" by the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA).

This addon is based on the Ercoupe 415C manufactured after WWII which had a 75HP Continental C75 engine.

Features:

  • 6 Liveries
  • 8K full PBR textures
  • High quality 3d modelling and animations
  • Flight model with limited stall and spin characteristics
  • All switches, lever and knobs operable (except circuit breakers)
  • 4 panel colors (Blue, Black, Red and Yellow)
  • Optional and subtle panel vibrations
  • Subtle tail and aileron vibrations
  • Radio and Transponder
  • Rotating beacon lights
  • Optional landing gear fairing and cockpit cover
  • Static Elements (chocks, tie down, etc)
  • Options Tablet to control the airplane custom options
  • Save state system for the airplane custom options
  • Documentation and checklist (including MSFS checklist)

Please read the documentation.

The documentation is inside the Documents folder which is inside the aircraft folder.

Went 3 stars because I love the Ercoupe so much I'm still flying this a lot, even though it's got very annoying problems. 1. The external model is absolutely beautiful, canopy may be a little oversized but not bad. Internally it's nice, but the viewing angle of the dash is strange, as if it's pointed toward the co-pilot. 2. rudder pedals, not sure if this is a limitation of the game or if it's even possible to tie in rudder controls with the yoke to match the missing pedals. By the way, in response to another reviewer here, it depends which one you have whether it has pedals or not. The one I've flown does not and all steering is by the yoke. I think ground steering is still the yoke even when one does have pedals, but can't swear by that. 3. Window fixes as mentioned in reviews would be nice, opening animation, partial opening, etc. Likewise custom call signs would be nice. 4. Feels very overpowered, but that can depend on what engine one has in it I suppose. 5. Cowl and even tail shaking with engine vibration is overboard. and 6. This is the big one I'm really here for... as mentioned by others, please fix the floating! This does feel like a glider, even at 40 knots. The Ercoupe I've flown sinks quickly, and does not bounce like mad once you're on the ground. And doesn't want to squirm all around once you're on the runway. Sure, there's no flaps, but the Ercoupe has a ton of drag with the design, wheels out, and double tail. Although it does feel stable, even a bit too much on stalls. You do feel some stall motions irl, although it really is remarkably stable even in that situation. Not trying to be nit picky, I love that BR Sim made this available and am very thankful! Even with my gripes I'm a little obsessed with this mod. If I could have anything fixed it would be that floating/gliding issue for landing.

A fun airplane to fly and a most welcome addition to my sim hangar. I do luv me some Ercoupe and follow a great YouTuber who posts vids of his real-life flights - also in a shiny silver craft.

Negatives? I am finding it rather difficult to slowdown for landing and it seems to want to float down the runway forever? Perhaps I'm doing something wrong? Also the front cowling and ailerons have an unrealistic and slightly distracting constant "bounce" motion compared to the real plane. Maybe the developers could cut that in half at the very least?

I jumped at this when I first heard of it. I loved the Ercoupes offered for XPlane and P3D, and was hoping for one for MSFS, and here it is. It is, unfortunately, just OK as it is. The 1.1 update solved one issue I had, which was the tablet on the yoke. I was hoping that it would also address the very noticeable tendency of the aircraft to float forever down the runway with the throttle at idle. Landing is very unrealistic from what I have seen from the numerous Ercoupe videos I have watched. (I am a former RW pilot, but have never flown an Ercoupe). I would also like to see, as others have mentioned, the ability to open the side windows partially. It is very common to fly with the windows in a partially open position, from what I have seen. If that can't be done, at least an animation of the windows opening instead of instant open and instant close. The external visual model is great, but I would like the ability for the aircraft to accept my custom tail number as entered in the sim. Overall, I am fairly happy with the aircraft, but the above would make me ecstatic and make me much more liable to recommend it to others.

I'd give this a 2.5 for now if half stars were allowed. This is a mediocre release that needs a bit of work to be good. First of all, another reviewer mentioned all steering is handled by the yoke. Not sure if they've even flown it because that's not true, you still have to use rudder pedals. Engine sounds are default XCub. There are sounds for the prop lever movement, even though there is no prop lever. There is no sound attenuation when opening the canopy, as usual for BRSim. If you open the canopy with crash detection on, the plane will crash. This plane was/is regularly flown with the canopy open. The canopy door animation is instant (i.e., there is no animation.) This is lazy and looks bad, but also means you can’t partially open the canopy (something I’ve seen Ercoupe pilots do on approach or just when they need some air.) The aircraft will float forever. It behaves like a glider. You can safely land this at 40 kts with absolutely no power or wind. Very unrealistic compared to the actual 415C. The trim is very slow, and the trim wheel animation frequently breaks for me. Night lighting leaves much to be desired and is way too bright. The click spot for the tablet is about 1px tall which is a pain for TrackIR/VR use. The prop disk animation is very choppy and has a film effect. BRSim, I worry, does not understand aircraft very well and this addon continues to demonstrate that.

Probably one of my favorite planes in my fairly extensive hanger. The only thing I find questionable is the power - is it maybe a little overpowered? Maybe someone who's actually flown an Ercoupe has the answer.

This is pretty nice rendition of the beloved Ercoupe. Push the rudder pedals away because all steering is handled by the yoke. I have only two issues. The trim is kind of weird. It seems to be uncontrollable from the on screen controls. Either fully up fully down or neutral. I was able to do fine adjustments from the trim wheel on my Honeycomb throttle quadrant, but the cockpit control did not indicate the change.

The second thing I noticed was that even though the windows will open, they are set up to either be fully closed or fully open. Also if you open them during flight the sim crashes due to over stressing the airframe. The same thing happens if you try to take off with them open. From what I have seen, the windows can be opened during flight IRL.

Overall a good job with just a couple of bugs.
