Just a few days after the announcement, the Nemeth Designs team released one of the helicopters they were working on: the Mi-24A. If you are a fan of this beast, you can rejoice and jump right into the cockpit.
Review: Cera Sim Bell 212 for FSX

Review: Cera Sim Bell 212 for FSX

Based on the most charismatic and best known helicopter (the Bell 205), the 212 is one of the most amazing and most used helicopters. The Cera Sim Bell 212 has been released for quite some time and it was somewhat of a bit release at the time it came out. Does it still live up to its fame? Nick Bates decided to find out.

Review: Alabeo R66 for FSX

Review: Alabeo R66 for FSX

The R66 is the first turbine-engine helicopter developed by Robinson and a helicopter a lot of virtual pilots would love to have in their hangars. Alabeo decided to give it a go and presented us with a very good looking machine but, as Nick found out, it's not quite up there with the high standards Alabeo usually presents us. Let's hope there's a patch coming soon to fix the issues found.

Displaying FSX aircraft position and instruments on a browser

Displaying FSX aircraft position and instruments on a browser

Using multiple monitors and devices to display aircraft instruments and views it's nothing new and we have been doing it for quite some time. This can become particularly hard, though, if you need to fully customize your panels. As a web developer, I found an easier approach for me, since I am at ease working with web pages and web technology.
Transitional flight: from FSX to DCS

Transitional flight: from FSX to DCS

For the second installment of this series, I gave DCS a try through the Mi-8MTV2 Magnificent Eight module. DCS is well known in the community for being a realistic simulator and the dedicated modules take that a step further. But DCS is, in fact, a whole new beast. In a good way.

Transitional flight: from FSX to X-Plane

Transitional flight: from FSX to X-Plane

The history of home flight simulation began over 20 years ago in 1982 when subLOGIC and Microsoft released the first version. From them on, different generations of aviation enthusiasts dived into a world of adventure and learning. Nowadays, there are other simulators out there that rival – and even surpass – Microsoft's simulator. How hard or how easy it is to transition from FSX to those other simulators? That's what I challenged myself to do. Starting with X-Plane.

Review: Nemeth AS350 for FSX and Prepar3D

The Aerospatiale AS350 Ecureuil (or Squirrel) is one of the most recognizable and used helicopters in the world. So much that we decided to make it part of our logo. It's definitely a favorite among helicopter simulation fans and Nick Bates decided to take it for a spin.

Review: ORBX FTX Trees HD for FSX and P3D

Review: ORBX FTX Trees HD for FSX and P3D

If I'd have to mention one of the things that I see most of the time I fly helicopters, that would have to be the ground, as I crash a lot. The second would have to be trees (I also crash against them -- except inside cities; there I usually make huge holes on buildings). Trees are pretty much everywhere and, let's face it, they're not that pretty in FSX and P3D. Especially in FSX. ORBX decided to change that with their FTX Trees HD.
