Note: This product has been created with the F-16s flight style in mind only. This package totally leaves out all offensive and defensive firepower capabilities – whilst you can track AI traffic, you can’t shoot at them. This has been designed to give you the most comprehensive flying experience; it’s not a combat simulation and it won’t try and recreate that style in any way, shape or form.

Rated 4.8/5.0 based on 5 customer reviews
Pretty sweet and reasonably complete model. Looks good, flies great, quite a few systems simulated. Radar works very well and easy, autopilot same (for us lazy folks). Enjoyable flight model, very decent to good sound.
Still to be considered an entry model, but the top end of that segment IMO - a far cry from the "cheap" models. Currently going for 20 euros on sale, which is a good price.
