That's great Craig! I've had it ported over since I got FsX
Sounds great and opens some remarkable possibilities. The Vimy replica which is now in Brooklands has done three reanactments of the three record breaking flights the Vimies have done in the interwar years by flying the Atlantic, to South Africa and to Australia. The replica had different engine installations and different paintjobs in all these flights so I wonder if they can be reproduced. Any takers?
I've said before that I enjoy flying old aircraft in FSX a lot when they represent restored examples or replicas, as in this way it looks believable to have them in the modern FSX environment. Flying the "Silver Queen" replica Vimy over modern Cairo or G-EAOU over Taj Mahan would be great:
I would not cross the Atlantic in FSX with it though...
This is great! Many thanks for converting all these to fsx native.
Having done some testing for Craig, here are a few screenshots. Although the aircraft can take quite a while to turn, it is made better through a lot of rudder and even differential throttle. I also like trying my hand at doing some gentle wing-overs with it. Like another long-distance designed aircraft, the Spirit of St. Louis, it only needs an exceptionally small percentage of the over-all fuel load in order to fly for a few hours. With the Vimy, I only have the main fuel tank filled at 5% for any given flight. I remember the early days of FS9, and trying to fly this and the Spirit at full fuel loads, and couldn't understand why they were so hard to get off the ground. : )
Looking forward to trying the update when its done.
Did someone mentioned the Vega was updated ? I must have missed that one, I have the Jenny and the Spirit but no Vega :(
EDIT: belay that request I just found it in the Spirit of St. Louis thread thanks.

The Vega and Wright Flyer are the only ones not yet FSX native (considering FSX comes with the DC-3 and Piper Cub, and CR Simulations as a very nice FSX native Ford Trimotor, which is very much the same as the FS9 Trimotor, but better). Although I can't speak outright for Craig, I'd imagine the Vimy files will be available shortly, as they were with the Spirit of St. Louis.
The FS trimotor model is a slightly different variant.
There are some paints available for the FS Trimotor that would be nice to have:
Not wanting to put anymore pressure on you Full, I know you have a very full plate.
Just a suggestion. LOL.
Oh, and thank you for converting the Vimy!
LOL I'm considering doing the Ford Tri-Motor just because so many paints are out for it....
Anyway here's the link for the Vimy
Oh and the Vega is nearly ready too
Superb work once again! Thanks a lot, Craig!
Yes, it would be great to have the good old FS9 Trimotor in FSX

Great to have another one in FsX
Wonderfully generous of you Craig. Greatly appreciated!
