External model is beautiful...my major beef is that this airplane is ridiculously overpowered. So here is my list of things to make this airplane get a 5 out of 5 stars:

- Get engine/flight model parameters correct...not even close currently
- Add visual AB effect
- Make the default be NO external stores
- Add a paint kit
- Add a an RF-8A or G variant

...and BOOM! It's a 5/5.

très bon avion niveau visuel, mais le pilotage et le son il faudrait mettre à jour, aucune mise à jour depuis la sortie, rien.

Having owned this since almost day 1, I wanted to hold off reviewing until I saw how the patch cycle went. Having owned the BN-2 and L-19 whose packages started off being pure garbage but several patches later have become very competent models, I know initially rough planes can be great. Being over a month since launch, sadly no updates is forcing me give this a 2 star review. For 29 EUR you are paying somewhat of a premium in this MSFS economy for a plane. This includes fixing what should have glaring issues during QA.

A laundry list of bugs and lacking features exist. From the map HUD not turning on properly from cold and dark to non-working interior buttons and switches. Initialization states are not setup properly either (such as spawning at altitude will put you in a plane with no running engine). As others have complained, you will occasionally get a beeping in the cockpit that seemly has a mind of it's own. While the interior looks decent, the exterior is way too shiny and not representative of even a brand new aircraft. As others have pointed out, one of the biggest negatives is the sound. Using A320 and CJ4 default sounds throughout takes you right out of the cockpit experience. The relatively quiet FJ44 engine sounds nothing like the roar of the afterburning J57 in the real plane.

At the end of it all I think this plane has promise. Some of what I've mentioned (like initialization states) is something that could be fixed in less than an hour. This isn't Fall of 2020. The SDK is getting quite robust and producing planes like this isn't acceptable anymore.

It's amazing. I am not sure how realistic it is but it has so many cool features like an air refueling boom, ram air turbine, and working hud.

Score : 3.5 / 5

Excellent exterior and interior modeling.
Flight model ok . Can't achieve super sonic speed ( due to sdk ) .

Let down badly by sounds ( Airbus A320 engine sounds , strange sounds in cockpit when banking left or right - sounds like mechanic left tools in cockpit !! )

Update solving these issues and its a 5/5 score !!

My review is somewhere in between the two previous reviews. I couldn't get the HUD or map to work at all, but the steam gauges seemed to work just fine. The sound was very good with no annoying noises. Most importantly, the flight model is excellent, particularly the automatic elevator trim. I tend to want to tweak most MSFS planes to make them fly well. With the F8 all I've done so far is to strengthen the wheel braking and widen the wheel base (both help ground stopping). I expect a fix for the avionics will be available before too long, so just buy it!

It's really cool, you should definitely put it on your watch lists and purchase in the future.

Right now it is buggier than a cheap motel. Nothing works properly. And the things that do work, work intermittently.

No exterior model when you are in the cockpit, which is weird in 2021 and if you use a non default view position it is noticeable.

There is an alarm that goes off for no reason all the time and I can't figure out how to turn it off.

This makes the plane unflyable.

Documentation is nice for what is there but is woefully incomplete.

Avionics switch definitely isn't working correctly.

I've only gotten the HUD to work once and now it is broken forever.

The wing warning light flashes forever if you start on the ground.

The sounds just well, aren't. Especially with that beeping.

It flies nice, but slower than it is supposed to be.

I REALLLY like where this is going, but feel I was a bit deceived as this is pre-alpha software that needs another 3-5 months of development and it will be something really great..

Right now I couldn't recommend it as it's virtually unflyable with the bugs it has.

Well built model with plenty of controls and switches. Textures are very good in and out. A radar is also present and is a nice addition to this special jet. I was highly impressed with this supper good addition to the military collection for MSFS. Can recommend it with no second thought.
