Just Flight Black Friday

Post by Swanoir » 24 Nov 2017, 19:15

Annoyingly, I already have all the aircraft I'd want in the deal. It's any 2 for £30, 3 for £40 and 4 for £50. What you have to ask yourself is, do I actually want 4 of the few products in the offer, and for any single one of them, would I pay £12.50 for it? I wouldn't mind the DC-10 and possibly to go with it the Hawk. Which comes out at £15 each. I'm not sure if I saw a special offer advertising each individually at that price that I'd go for it.
And another thing, the quoted RRPs are nowhere near what the most recent offers on the JF website have been. On the other hand, if I'd have known a year ago that I could have picked up the F27, Dove, HS748 and Hunter for £50 I would have jumped at the chance. Shame I've already got them... 8)

The Hawk would be the only one I would be temped by. *-) The others I either have already, or don't want. :dunno:

On the other hand I just picked up the Majestic Dash-8 Pro for 37 quid from FlightSim Store. Ugly aircraft, but a great simulation. :lol:

Its a good deal, as long as there are four you really want.

Having been a good customer of JF already, and having done the last two pick four sales, there are only one or two I am only mildly interested in so I am trying to hold off.

I got he Hunter and one-11 in this sale. I like the Hunter - looks good and good to fly. The one-11 on the other hand - at the moment it's a bit of a dog. There's a significant problem with the FDE much discussed on JFs forum. I've no doubt it will be fixed eventually but it's been a fair few months since the last update broke the FDE. It's pretty much unflyable as it is so it will have to sit on the ground until the next update. What's a touch annoying is that it is fundamentally broken but still on sale. Best to avoid for the time being.

Big shame about that Chris as I have always wanted the Just Flight 1-11 but will wait until all the problems have been sorted out.

Did you know that according to the laws of aerodynamics it is impossible for a bumble bee to fly.......fortunately the bumble bee doesn't know any thing about aerodynamics, so carries on flying.

I have recently flown a few 1-11 flights in the JF model and have had some successes with it. I can't say how accurate the FDE is but I was able to fly successfully. I got it when it first came out and then the autopilot was a complete disaster but they seem to have sorted that out now and its usable.

You may have the version before they broke it Joe. There's a fair bit of traffic on JF's forum about the woes surrounding the current version of the 1-11. It is possible to fly it but pitch has to be mainly controlled by the trim wheel - there's next to no elevator authority. Makes for exciting take-offs if your not aware of the problem before doing so.

Chris, now that I think about it you're probably right. last flight I did was mostly autopilot (which uses trim not elevators), really need lots of trim up to take off and just about crashed when I came out of autopilot on landing.
