Plane you are looking forward to the most?

Recommended Posts

Of the planes included in FC Vol.I, what plane or planes are you most impatient for?

 

Personally I'm curious to see how the Camel and SE.5a will feel like to fly. In RoF Camel felt to me about as unpleasant to fly (at least with more than 50% fuel load) as the Dr.I, but seeing as the FC Dr.I very positively surprised me, maybe the Camel will also feel pleasant to pilot. I also never got comfortable with the SE5's unwieldy gun placement and disliked the Lewis gun's tracers and constant jamming. Will be interesting to see how the Lewis will be modeled in FC.

 

But what I'm looking forwards to the most is the Pfalz D.III and the Albatros DV.a. Originally I paid little attention to the Pfalz but then grew to love it (this in 2017, so way past the days of the Pfalzcopter), whereas the Albatros D-series is one of my favourite series of planes ever.

 

What are your thoughts?

There are a few I’m looking forward to.

 

- the Dolphin as it was always my go to aircraft on servers until i died really easily

 

- the SE5 as that’s the one I would end up in after dying in the Dolphin. Probably racked up my 2nd highest amount of hours in this plane.

 

- no 1 being the Albatross. Loved this bird, and didn’t care which one either.

I don't have that much experience with the Dolphin, but from what I've flown it, I feel it goes rather underappreciated on the forums. ("Can we drop the Dolphin and Pfalz for something else")

If they make the Camel pleasant to the pilot, then I think they've got it wrong !

 

Yeah, not too pleasant obviously 😄

Maybe everything to do with it coming unglued at the merest hint of a bullet whistling past.

I've a soft spot for a Dolphin - grew up with a propeller from one in the front room.

 

The Pfalz D.III was my all time favourite ride in RoF. Can't wait to get her in the BoX engine.

Of the planes listed for FC1 the Albatross, Camel, and SEa5. However there are two planes that I would like to see more than any listed, the Pup and Newport 17. They are my two favorites and I truly am saddened they are not coming out in FC1, but I've got fingers crossed that they will be added shortly after release.

I'm also rather curious at the Camel behavior, since the DR1 is somewhat tamed. I never had serious trouble flying the DR1 but I do have it with the Camel. I should note I don't use any response curves.

 

But someone mentioned the Pup. Oh, the Pup... 💕

Simple answer for me: Albatros DV.a.

 

Together with the Nieuport 17 the latest Albatros iteration was my favorite ride back in RoF. Really glad it made it right into the first Volume of FC.

 

That being said, I hope we'll get the Nieuport eventually just as well.

I guess the Alb is the one I'm most looking forward to in Vol.1, but I really hope they follow it up with some earlier crates.  N11 and N17 along with the Halb DII and earlier Albs.

Albatros D.Va. I love that plane.

 

Even though my best PWCG career was ended when my D.Va’s wings fell off...

Same as, hope to see the Re-8 in the next set as well if we get there.:drinks:

 

I wonder if the Sikorsky will eventually make it or does that fall in to the types the game cannot handle, the GothaG5 and HP400 must surely come though.

 

Anyway, we shall see.

 

 

Wishing you all the very best, Pete.:biggrin:

Why do you think it's a plane the game cannot handle?

Primarily because I was thinking of the S22 and  it is a four engine bomber and the team have said that these types are beyond the games capability, that said obviously it is a world away from the B-17 that most seem to request here so who knows, maybe it will come, at least I hope all the previous R.O.F types make it into F.C as well as possibly a updated Channel map and the one for the Russian front.:salute:

IIRC the problem with heavy bombers like the B-17 and the Lancaster is the fact that they have so many crew members. The Ilya Muromets in RoF, by contrast, only models two crew members.

FC is desperately in need of two-seaters/heavy bombers....for target practice, of course. 😄

Not sure how they are going to release the next set of planes but hope we get 4 more at least, a 2 seaters and fighters, like Bristol and Halberstadt along with camel and alb dva. That way we can bomb and escort the bombers.

You got it right. :) The game already models bombers with multiple stations (e.g., He 111) very well, but a plane like the B-17 would probably really tax things, since it would have at minimum 6 gunners, plus a pilot, all with different firing arcs.

Camel, just because as far as I am aware its the only one the RNAS used.

S.E.5.a and the Fokker D.VIII are probably the two I like the most in Rise of Flight. I can't resist being excited about the Sopwith Camel even though it kills me all the time on its own in RoF. If its possible that its a bit tamer or at least more communicative prior to stall, I'd be ok with that :)

SE5a for me.

And hopefully a Fokker DVII aü engine one day.

 

Have a nice day.

So, while the Albatros D.Va is the plane I’m looking forward to the most out of what we’re getting, there’s a different plane that I’m really hoping we get in the future - the Hansa-Brandenburg D.I. It’s essentially the Australian-Hungarian Albatros D.Va, in that it loves to fall apart yet was somehow still flown by the most elite pilots, such as the Austrian 27 victory ace Frank Linke-Crawford (his mother was British).

That weird thing on top? That’s the armament. Good luck clearing any jams.

Camel for sure.  

 

Future volumes of ROF remakes:  DH2 and

Eindecker.  They are so much fun in a multiplayer furball.  

 

And Sopwith Pup.

SPAD VII 180hp.

Then all the Albatros for target practise.

 

Actually I can't wait for more 2 seaters. They really make the game.
