Since they updated it, I find it very nice. I bought the 414A this weekend, and I have to say that is just another level. But the Velocity XL is really good now
From the JF store page:
Based on the default MSFS Extra 330, the Velocity XL’s sound set includes added sounds and custom code to create a fully featured soundscape inside and out to give the feel of the real aircraft’s power and construction.
The Extra 300L has a Lycoming AEIO-540. The stats on the wiki page say the XL has a Continental IO-550 running from 310-340 hp, but further up in the article under the development section it says the plane is designed to fit a number of engines, including a Lycoming IO-540. All the engines mentioned are in the lower 300s range though so the one in the Black Square’s version must be a bit souped up. It is a kit plane so I imagine all sorts of things have been fitted in it over the years.
So tempted to buy it. How well does it handle at slow speed? Is it good for slow sight seeing? What are the landing and stall speeds?
I think that might help you.
But i believe yes, great plane for sight seeing, but it can go pretty fast as well. Great plane, i really recommend it!
I got a not authorized for link. But I went ahead and bought it. Thanks for the info!
Did the right thing! Hope you enjoy it.
On the page where you bought it there is a link with a .pdf manual that is pretty complete with all the info. Please check it out!
Strange, even when I do it from purchase page, and I already downloaded it, it still get this error message. Maybe it doesn’t like some security I have on my PC. But the manual is included with the install.
Gonna take it out for it’s maiden flight
Have fun! Let us know your thoughts later!
Here’s a great read on the Velocity.
The plane pretty much taxis and flies in sim how described IRL.
Thanks for sharing, great read indeed.
I just looked through the changelogs from the most recent update, I think this might push me over the fence on buying. Glad to see so many things getting worked on already. Velocity XL (MSFS) Changelog : The Spirit of Flight Simulation (justflight.com)
Does anyone know if Black Square is communicative anywhere? Social media, Discord, etc? Responsive to support requests? I’m not even sure if they have a website.
