View Full Version : Wanted a FSX N3N

It seems to me that an airplane that has been long neglected is the Naval Aircraft Factory’s N3N, Yellow Peril. We were surrounded by them during the war, being near a Naval Training base, they were common place.
The Navy used them more than the Stearman N2S. They were slightly bigger and heavier than the Stearman, it also was somewhat stronger, being built to the Navy’s exacting specifications. It carried the same engine as the Stearman although it was 15 HP greater in power. It actually sounded louder than the Stearman and I think it was a difference in the prop. I believed that the N3N used a climbing prop.
I wish that someone of Dave Eckhart’s caliber would design one for FSX. It leaves a big hole in WWII aircraft that I knew and loved.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
