This could be fun. I always enjoyed the ultralights in previous sims.

Review is not flattering, worth a read.

The fps drop comment is very strange for an aircraft with no avionics :thinking: (funnily enough noted in areas that are typically fps heavy regardless)

I imagine the flight model comments are a little more valid however

Ouch, thanks for sharing. I badly wanted this to be a solid release as I could see myself having a blast flying low and slow and taking in the sights with this one. Can anybody speak for their reputation as a developer? Looks like they’ve been around a while.

Yes, love ultralights. They are great for sight seeing and such.
But at EUR 18.60 - and once I stop laughing - I’d rather fly my kite!
Be serious please! With the volume of unit sales you must be expecting with MSFS 2020,
that’s a sub EUR 10 aircraft all day.

Addendum:

And I am entitled to my opinion.
So lets keep it civil, eh.

That does seem a little pricey for what it is.

Bummer, around 5 Euro I would have bought it even with the issues present. Would really love an ultralight

I honestly thought Nemeth stopped developing addons. Sad to hear it’s getting lackluster reviews.

That´s a bummer as this is exactly the aircraft I waited for in MSFS.
Can anyone of you confirm it´s not nice to fly?

I like this bird, something is wrong whit the payload calculation,so you have to enter a very low pilot weigth, but otherwise a nice but different experience.

Ahh yes, the aerolite, i enjoyed flying this thing in xplane quite a bit. I have to agree that the price is waaay too much for what youre getting

Bought it and honestly this isn’t bad but as with nearly every MSFS release thus far it’s been buggy. There’s a braking noise that occurs non stop on a loop for me unless I put on my parking brake. Even in the air. No idea what that’s about. In retrospect I wouldn’t pay more than 10 USD for this, not the nearly 20 I paid… absolutely overpriced.

As I said, above, Ultralights are good fun, so Yes, at EUR 5 or less, I too would have tried it.
Lets hope better examples are offered up, and at a realistic price.

I do not know, but it looks like a simple ‘port over’ to me.
And maybe lacklustre products deserve a lackluster review!
Shame really. The demand is clearly there.

For the price of 2 super grande primo latte mocha bla bla coffees or 2 combo meals at your local mystery meat fastfood chain or a 24pk of premium double ply toilet paper… its fun and well worth - which is a nice change of pace (with my obviously ridiculous opinion)

This thing is the ultimate sightseer and not much slower than a Cub

Sounds excellent, flies as it seems it should (tho ive never flown an ultralight sadly) trims nicely, plenty of gusto getting high and finesse getting low

A dozen liveries to boot

I flew around just south of my home in Cape Canaveral, NASA, KSC and had a blast

Grand Canyon is next :grinning:

With this recent POI update to the States, this and it are a perfect combo

Does everything work in it after today’s update?

Nice counter opinion, well put.
I really would have bought it if it had been EUR 10 or less.
My loss!

Cheers.

How do i fly these ultralights? Shortly after takeoff, I quickly lose altitude and crash.
