Check this one out - in particular the flight modelling from the videos. Most people in the forum agree that this is one hell of a good sim esp where the flight modelling is concerned - cant get anymore real then this!...

I like the hand and feet in the cockpit.

The wind noise is awesome, too!

I have. When I was a kid my mom used to occasionally buy me shaved ices on hot days like today. Slurpees too sometimes.

Edit anyways I actually think it would be cool for a while to fly a glider. As long as I could strap some 50s to its wings that is.

All of you who are so quick to dismiss this sim because it's a glider sim are laughable. IRL, everyone puts down the glider pilot because they know they couldn't keep a glider up for 5+ hours at a time.

It's a lot harder than most may think.

To me that sim is very interesting,the flight model looks right on.Could some one tell me what the US price would be,I am thinking it would give me hours of enjoyment.

i wouldnt say its hard keeping it up for 5hours, i would say you're lucky if you can find thermals...its not hard, look for mountains on windy days

I think of gliding as being a lot like surfing. It really is a sport in which nature plays a great role. As you suggested, gliders look for thermals much like surfers look for waves.

Hi Papotex,

Can you share with us how this sim performs -flight modelling wise? Cos I am contemplating buying it myself.

Your decision counts.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

BTW Lemky,

the price for this sim is US$48.28.

Seems reasonable for a sim of this quality.

if you do buy, could you also post ur comments?..

Looks like fun, not worth US$50 to me though, by the time I got it into Australia I'd be up for about AUS$110-$130

Absolutely!! You know you're gliding in the Me-163 when you can hear the clock ticking in the cockpit. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Im not a big soaring fan but i have to admit its one of the most realistic flight sims possible, xplane 8 is another then in 3rd Flightsim 2004/FS9 with some of the http://www.shockwaveproduction.com addons. With full documentation, pilots manuals all data charts, pilot intervies, videos of the pilots flying the aircraft etc. That kind of research many of us try to do here but it falls of deaf ears. Here its just you is wrong then fms change so drastically patch to patch, with no mention of changes, no documented sourced information like its just pulled out of thin air by the dev team but hey its maddox games.

Maybe one day these technologies will be incorporated into a wwii dogighting flight sim. Unfortunatly this game is the only existing wwii dogfighting game with no real competitors.

There is rowans bob, target ware and some other arcade ones but they are similiar to flightsims of the early 90s standards graphically.

I think if janes wwii fighters, aces high, EAW etc updated model quality, full world map meshes, and add shiii water quality they would be significant competitors to this game and maddox's 2007 bob.

Same with cfs3 if they just update models like some of the 3rd party work, terrain meshs, terrain textures and water effects and add in the difficulty selections that il2 fb aep pf offer there would be a great choice of wwii flight sims to our small community. TrackIR3 6DOF support is also a big advantage the other games do offer. The more descent wwii flightsims the better in my opinion, and I would certainly buy them and continue to many years down the road.

Looks similiar to Silent Wings... I played demo of SW (nice they released it), but can't see Condor's demo.
