How would you guys rate the xcub? I haven’t used it yet and want your guys opinion on it.
I like it a ton! One thing I wish wasn’t there was the over 35 GS knot rule, but that’s me. I hope we see more Tail draggers!
I like it but it’s really hard to land for me
Compared to the other aircraft in the sim I’d say its a 9/10. Difficult to get the hang of but that’s the fun of it.
I love taking off with it and staying in the air and touch and goes but landing it is a nightmare because at below 35 knots the plane face plants and crashes lol. I will wait till the landing tutorial comes out to fly it more frequently.
All I wanted was a GA aircraft with a live cockpit, and now it’s here! And I love it. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Yeah I know, I was super excited about the live cockpit too and I wish it was in all aircraft. I heard the XCub has really bad handling though.
Handling isn’t “bad”, taildraggers are just different and it requires more skill with the rudder.
It’s a little bit of a challenge to learn, but once you do, it’s great! Definitely worth practicing a little in casual or solo.
Thank you Patrick!
Alright, thank you Chad!
It’s really fun and good in formations.
Well its like this… I don’t like GA’s, not irl but in any sim. I love airliners in a sim.
Somehow, now, I can’t get my hands off the XCub. It is addictive. I even sacrificed some pre-event (heavies) practice time just so that I could fly the XCub. Conclusion: Don’t know how, but IF must’ve done something right, for me, there.
As for bad handling, its part of the “realistic” excitement. Because I understand that the IF Team has thoroughly researched it and also in-game its parameters are so light that even the in-game wind could push it. So I accept the rudder challenges it present as I remembered we also did some heavy rudder use during my light GA life irl (a long time ago lol).
So yeah, it’s good. Cheers!
