Discover what made the famous rocket-powered Messerschmitt Me-163B the extraordinary flying machine it was. This package features possibly the most authentic aerodynamics ever done for this iconic WWII fighter, painstakingly researched and written by FSX aerodynamics master Bernt Stolle, whose own father flew the Me-163B in WWII - and thus this was a very special project. From mastering the art of taking off in an aircraft with a very narrow (and jettisonable) undercarriage, to combat maneuvering at high speed among the bomber formations, to flying back to your airfield and landing the aircraft in gilder form once the engine fuel is used up, you will come to know both the challenges and joys that were those of the real Me-163B pilots.

Although the Me-163B was known for its nice in-flight handling characteristics, this Me-163B will none the less be a challenge for experienced pilots, or for those seeking to expand their skill range. Discover why only the best of the best were allowed to fly the Me-163B Komet - including those with exceptional glider skills.

Experience the Me-163B aerodynamics to their absolute fullest.

Included free:

  1. An entire USAAF B-17G Flying Fortress bomber formation, to scale, with 162 accurately scaled low poly aircraft (flying via a single set of air files), which can be flown as AI or by using freeware programs (such as the excellent FormationSetup, available here), to fully enable you to experience the spectacle and scale of these formations plus what it took to get the Komet into a firing pass, for example, and discover the high skills required of flying such a high speed aircraft against slower machines.
  2. An accurately scaled, low poly, Messerschmitt Bf-110G tow plane, to take you up to altitude on unpowered training flights (instructions for use included).

History: 

The Messerschmitt Me-163B saw action from May 1944 until the end of the war, and so far has been the only rocket-powered fighter to ever have been operational.

Designed by Alexander Lippisch, a pioneer in the field of aerodynamics and especially 'flying wing' designs, the first flight of the revolutionary Me-163A was in 1941, and soon established a new speed record of 1104.5 km/h (624.2 mph). However, the revolutionary design meant a lengthy development period, and the Komet only became operational in mid-1944. The rocket engine would remain a temperamental (and often dangerous) element of the design, but the extraordinary performance of the Me-163B would give it an unrivalled speed advantage over any contemporary piston fighter for the rest of the War. The fastest-ever recorded speed of the Me-163B was 1,130 km/h (702 mph), a speed which would not be exceeded until 1953, by a Hawker Hunter.

Information is not that clear, but some 400 Komet's were built, with 279 seeing operational service. Their actual effectiveness, due to late-war production and fuel-supply difficulties, was limited, and in the end the 163 was only responsible for (depending on the source) between 9 and 16 kills in total (for the loss of some 6 Me-163's due to enemy action plus another 9 to accidents ).

SIMFLYER - GARMIN GNS430 GNS530 GPS PACKAGE
Carlos
Good product. Looks very much like the real thing and easy to install if you read the instructions. Easier if you have working knowledge of panels and how to read them. You have to turn on the GPS by pressing the comm volume button. You can even stack the 530 over the 430 if you want a second GPS to use comm2 and nav2 radios. Unfo-
rtunately the GNS430 cursor lags behind the scroll when trying to select a procedure from a long list (i.e., DFW), and sometimes there is no scroll at all (observed if the airport's approaches have been edited), so you may have a hard time trying to select a certain procedure if the cursor is off-screen. The 530 does not give you a distance from track indication (it did appear in one instance on vloc, but I wasn't able to get it to come back). Neither offers terrain info. Mostly aesthetic (very good aesthetic), but a slight downgrade from the standard GPS500 for practicality because of those lost features and issues. I think the 530 is better, and it also has TCAS.

I'm running P3D v4.5 with an i7 and GTX1080. This is a great piece of scenery. Fabulous frame rates and lots of detail. I love the internal views of the terminal buildings. Good to find another developer competing with the big guys. I plan to see what else they have. Best airport on the west Mediterranean and great base for African destinations out of Europe.

Excellent scenery with lots of landmark buildings reproduced. Great performance under P3DV5. Higly competent and responsive support by developers. -
If I would wish one thing then possibly all the li-Long areas could be provided with 3D buildings rater than Photoscenery. -
But who knows, possibly developers are already working on that....
DIGITAL DESIGN - TENERIFE V2 P3D5
Daniel
A really beautiful scenery which makes flying in and out of Tenerife South a real joy. The colouring of the terrain is really nice and the autogen around the airport with many hand placed buildings is superb. The addition of the sloped runway and also slope of the taxiways really adds a new level of immersion to the sim and just brings the airport to life. I deduct one star just because the autogen around the airport is beautifully done, but the autogen for the rest of the island is non-existent and this is a real shame. Overa-
ll I recommend the scenery!
REX 5 - WORLDWIDE AIRPORTS HD FSX P3D
Jack
The total amount of value you get out of this product is purely based on where you fly in your sim. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that flies to sceneries that are not available; for instance bush flying in Alaska. But if you are one that regularly flys airliners in Europe, I wouldn't recommend this as I think investing into single airport sceneries is more beneficial to your simming experience. To add, I was a tad disappointed in the options as I think REX 4 Texture direct does a better job at airport textures. Overall, it's an alright product but the way you perceive this product is going to be based on where you fly.

one of the best scenery from this vendor samscene, the scene is very realistic and detailed with good frame rate!

Its great that the guys from AUscene acted on my email about replacing the static jetways hats of to them for listening. Its a great product
TECHNOBRAIN - FS ADD-ON COLLECTION NAHA AIRPORT FSX P3D
Stephen
This scenery is of a good standard. However as with all the TechnoBrain sceneries, it is amongst the most expensive single airport sceneries out there and as such you would expect it to be top shelf quality. It certainly is not that! I selected runway 18R in the FMC and imagine my surprise when on finals (and wondering why "APPROACH" would not engage)I realise that 18R does not exist.

I am amazed by the shanghai city center especially the bund and pudong area, also with acceptable frame rate, whether flying from or landing either the Hongqiao or Pudong airport, now with the shanghai city skyline gives a lot of immersion
