YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS

YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS

I'm really enjoying this plane. My first choice for VFR as it flies low and fast, traversing great distances with wonderful field of view. And its autonomy of little over one hour is ideal for casual flying. Here are some of the points I noticed so far (version 1.2): **Pros**: - Beautiful model. - Simulated oxygen consumption based on altitude. It only starts to decrease above 8000 ft and the consumption increases with altitude from there on. - The MGL flight suite presents some great functionality for this specific plane, like smoke and G-forces indicators as well the landing gear actuator pressure. It doesn't work like the real aircraft but is a nice workaround (I believe it is N2 rpm in fact). - Wonderful performance for sightseeing large and distant areas due to its high cruise speed while being able to slow down to GA speeds. **Cons**: - The fuel flow is the same for every altitude, no matter if it is sea level, 10.000, 20.000 or even 30.000 feet I managed to reach once. This can't be right. With less air, the engine should mix less fuel to keep the fuel-air ratio within limits. This is my main complaint. - ATC doesn't know what kind of plane it is. It tries to say an empty string. It seems something is missing in some config file. - There is no way to refill the oxygen tank. - Elevator trim is too sensible, making it difficult to trim level flight at cruise speed. - Ground behavior at takeoff and landing speeds is too difficult. The steering is too sensible. - There is no structural ice visible even if the windshield is completely frozen. The aerodynamic effects also seem to be absent. There is no way to freeze the pitot tube. It is as if the heater is always on. - There is no contrail even above FL300 with OAT -42 C. - When there are atmospheric effects on the windshield (rain or ice), the oxygen gauge shakes itself out of the socket and ends up disappearing completely (actually is quite funny). - A few cockpit textures deserve a better polish. I bought this plane at the exact day version 1.2 was released, so I didn't experience the evolution of the product. I just hope it continues to be updated since I believe it has great potential, but still has a lot of rough edges.
