de Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide for MSFS ➶
Dave Garwood et al’s beautiful de Havilland Rapide for the latest version of Microsoft Flight Simulator, converted from the FSX version, and downloadable at Sim Outhouse forums, after free registration.
- Brakes are very touchy causing easy nose-overs. There may be a way to remedy this by editing a text file.
- Even with throttle closed completely the plane has almost no drag. Need to cut out engines to land.
- I had to map Engine 1 Throttle and Engine 2 Throttle to my GNX WWII throttle axis for the engine throttles to work.
I first heard about this aeroplane from my aunt Beu, who flew in one with my uncle for their honeymoon in 1954, from Bristol to Guernsey in the Channel Islands. I will be attempting to recreate this flight on stream soon!
Thanks to Mattrogg for letting me know about this plane. I’d pay for a brand new version with 3D WWise sounds!
