I just couldn’t resist and picked it up on Saturday. It looks beautiful, it flies beautiful and I don’t have a jet trainer yet. The no EFM part always stopped me from getting either the C-101 or the Hawk. The fact that you can already take a joyride in the back seat pushed me over the edge (zing!). I just need to find someone who has it AND can steer it on the ground. There was a hilarious moment where we didn’t make a turn that was being recorded (I think). I will add the video if he uploads it.
He didn’t upload the failed attempt at taxiing out of the hangar (I’'ll ask him about that next time) but here is a video of him riding along with me. I almost botched the landing but it wasn’t too bad for a third or fourth attempt. I had a bit of trouble adjusting to the slow throttle response. It’s almost as bad as the MiG-15 (well, not quite). Video is in German. We’re just talking about the L-39 and the 1.5 Update in general.
Edit: I assume most of you are based in the States so finding time during the week might be difficult but if anyone wants to fly a bit L-39 COOP: I’m usually online in the evening hours CEST/CET but Friday and Saturday I’m flexible: Steam Community :: Derbysieger
