This add-on aircraft package for Microsoft® Flight Simulator contains five variations of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mark 1, one variation of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mark 2 and a 60-page English and French language flight manual with installation instructions and step-by-step procedures (PDF format).

The Avro Arrow remains the stuff legends are made of many years after all prototypes were ordered destroyed just before the aircraft could fulfill its intended role as a new type of high-altitude interceptor against long-range enemy bombers during the Cold War.

The Arrow was a revolutionary aircraft and certainly one of the most advanced of its time. It used computer control and "fly by wire" technology and was capable of flying over Mach 2.0.

The Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow for Flight Simulator is a chance to experience first hand the sheer performance of a series of aircraft whose advanced systems and cockpit ergonomics were quite a challenge for the test pilots who flew them fifty years ago.

Your CF-105 Arrow addon will allow you to fly at high altitudes at twice the speed of sound, simulate the procedures required during test flights or reconnaissance and interception missions, and even test the anticipated performance of the mighty Orenda PS-13 "Iroquois" engine that was being installed in the Arrow Mark 2 (RL-206) at the time the Arrow program was cancelled.

Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow Add-on Aircraft Description

The Xtreme Prototypes Arrow add-on aircraft package contains five variations of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mk. 1 equipped with two Pratt & Whitney J75-P-5 turbojet engines (serial numbers 25201 to 25205) and one variation of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mk. 2 equipped with two mighty Orenda PS-13 "Iroquois" turbojet engines (serial number 25206).

Each aircraft is highly detailed and has been carefully modeled based on available archive material in order to conform as closely as possible to the real-world Avro Arrow.

The airplanes feature different reflective textures, unique markings, movable control surfaces (horizontal stabilizer, vertical stabilizer/rudder and speed brakes), fully animated engine turbine and compressor disks and engine nozzles (petals), extendable landing gear, two movable canopies with cockpit details, pilot/copilot and animated parts.

All aircraft feature a dozen special visual effects such afterburner flames, engine smoke, wing vortices and aircraft lights.

The real Avro CF-105 Arrow was an all-weather, high-altitude interceptor aircraft, designed and built by the A.V. Roe Aircraft Company of Canada (Avro Canada), as the culmination of a design study that began in 1953, during the Cold War.

The Arrow was a two-seat, twin-engine aircraft. It featured a delta wing design that had the advantage of allowing for the wing's leading edge to remain behind the shock wave created by the aircraft's nose when flying at supersonic speeds.

The Arrow (Mk. 1) was capable of reaching Mach 2 with the Pratt & Whitney J75 turbojet engines. The aircraft was expected to break all speed records when the more powerful Orenda PS-13 "Iroquois" engines were installed.

Fully Functional 3D Virtual Cockpits

Each Arrow add-on aircraft model comes with a fully functional virtual cockpit which contains over 900 parts and nearly 200 animated gauges, switches, levers, light indicators and flight instruments. Each VC has been meticulously created to conform as closely as possible to the cabin of the real CF-105 Arrow and to allow a total 3D immersion into the Avro Arrow flying environment.
 

The full 3D gauges have been carefully designed and modeled based on the original analog instruments found in the real Arrow during the 1950s. Virtually all devices in the cockpits are functional and behave like the original ones found in the real-world Avro Arrow.

The Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow package contains two different virtual cockpits corresponding to different time periods or aircraft configurations.

Each Arrow add-on aircraft comes with one main instrument panel and a number of secondary panels. In addition, the default FS 2D (Garmin) GPS panel is available to the desktop pilot.

The VC has cockpit spotlights and backlit instrument panels that are lit when the cockpit and/or panel lighting switches on the right side panel are turned on.

The Arrow's instrument panels are complex and in order for the desktop pilot to familiarize him/herself with the many different panels, special "tooltips" (or captions) have been integrated within virtually every device found in the cockpit. Simply move the cursor over a gauge with the mouse and its name will appear. Therefore, each panel can be used as a learning tool for understanding the different panel configurations and the complex operation of the Avro Arrow.

Another interesting feature of the VC is the possibility to render the canopy "invisible" to create the impression that the aircraft is equipped with a "bubble" glass canopy. Though not realistic in the case of a real Arrow mission, the "invisible" canopy gives more visibility to the virtual pilot (especially during landing) and allows him or her to admire the landscape.

Arrow Pilot's Operating Instructions (Manual)

The Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow aircraft package comes with a comprehensive 60-page user manual inspired from original Avro aircraft manuals (PDF format, Adobe® Reader® 8.0 or later required).

The manual, available in both English and French, contains the necessary information for the installation and operation of the CF-105 Arrow virtual aircraft, 3D cockpits and associated instrument panels.

The end-user is authorized to print copies of the manual for his/her own use, in conjunction with the add-on simulation software. The best way to keep the manual handy for easy reference during flight is to organize it in a durable presentation binder.

Steve
An incredibly fun aircraft and I love the new spraying effects. Tha-
t said to make this a 5 star release there's just a few flight model things that need to be worked out, right now it is still difficult to reduce speed because the flaps do not work correctly.

John
Looking at the price I mistakenly was somewhat skeptical about purchasing RJFF, but how wrong I was. I echo my fellow purchasers praise for this airport and want to add a 'very well done' to SNJ Sim for this scenery. What amazing value for money it is and I sincerely hope that SNJ will continue to provide this quality of add-on. My one request would be that they look to northern Japan and produce some of the airports in that area. I almost did not buy RJFF because I have a number of airports located in southern Japan. Kudos to SNJ Sim.

love it best route is GAtwick - barbados in the A330 made it good apporach and taxi :))
VIELCON DESIGNS - REALISTIC RAIN SOUND FSX P3D FS2004
Ruston
The sounds themselves are excellent - certainly the best I've encountered for the simulator. That said, there is a noticeable hiccup every time the loop resets which I found irritating and impossible to ignore. The hiccup is caused by a fraction of a second of silence before the rain sound begins right at the start of each .wav file. It can be fixed if you have decent sound editing software - just delete the silence. One file has a fade-in effect - you have to get rid of that, too. I did this and the hiccups are gone in all the rain sounds (both internal and external) that I've managed to coax out of P3D thus far. If you're going to try this yourself, be sure you first back up your original VielCon files before starting. Th-
e recordings are worth the price (to me at least), but the developer really should have paid more attention to the editing. Users shouldn't have to edit sound files in a payware product to eliminate such an obvious immersion breaker. Many don't even have the means to do so. Perhaps VielCon will fix the files for future buyers. If so, I hope a future purchaser will post a review indicating the hiccups are no longer present in the unedited product. In that event, you may consider this a 5-star review. In summary, if you have the software and willingness to edit sound files I fully recommend the product. The editing should take you less than half an hour. If you don't, then these will still be a highly significant upgrade to the default sounds provided loop hiccups don't bother you.

Beautiful Scenery, but I have no ILS or SIDs and STARs all it gives me is direct departures and direct arrivals. I wish they would fix this send an update. I contacted WF and they were not helpful.

Version 1.02 the spray system is much better now. Great They added 2 models and winglets toggle. The flaps flightmodel need more work to properly function as they should. Tested wing drop stall, but it's impossible to recover. It's a really fun aircraft.

REALPHYSICS - DORAND AR1 A2 200 MSFS
Agoston
Finally, a product that satisfies my need for a vintage aircraft. She sounds, feels and looks real. First, I was a bit skeptical reading a couple of negative reviews. However, for only 12Euros I took the risk. What a wonderful plane I've discovered! Be-
ing a pilot, airplane manufacturer and of course aviation enthusiast, I can tell you that you can rarely find such a product. The cockpit and the textures are almost photorealistic.-
The engine sound in particular must have been recorded from the original or a very similar powerplant, based on my personal experience as a frequent visitor of the British air shows and museums mainly in Duxford where you can hear quite similar sounds. Some say the cockpit sound muffled. That is true because you have to have at least a headphone on your ears. Otherwise, you would be deaf pretty soon by the unmuffled exhaust pipes less than a meter away. Moreover, you must have to wear it for the sake of radio communication as well. You can hear the sounds of the structure, the clicks of the switches and knobs, the wind noise as well when the big 900in3 engine is off. The pictures and the description clearly state that the plane is restored with more recent avionics and other up to date materials whilst continuing to maintain the vintage feeling. For me it is quite obvious in 2021 you couldn’t get into the blue with a single compass or other over 100 years old gear from 1916. Those upgrades are extending the usability of the aircraft. I really hope that realPhysics will create other excellent aircrafts such as this from the same era. I wholeheartedly recommend.

The exterior of the aircraft is very nice, so are the visual effects. Unfortunately it is almost unflyable. During takeoff it is very twitchy, but with a little practice it is at least flyable. During landing though:Even though the stallspeed is at 52kts (interestingly according to the cfg file it is the same for flaps up and full flaps) if you fly at 70kts and try to flare, the nose just drops down and even thoug the aircraft was trimmed perfektly for 70kts you have not remotely enough elevator authority to flare the aircraft. (even Version 1 was better in that regard). I hope this can be fixed, then the aircraft gets 5 stars from me. It is exactly what I was looking for. p.s. I have 13.000 real life hours, so I am pretty sure it is not my fault with the landings.

The product is nice well done very detailed but I think the appron is too white, I wrote to the developer about it and he never replied The star for the map is also missing but the product works very well and it is really nice.
