Is there a add-on for a Tiger Moth for fs2004?

Hallo anyone, I hope I've worded my query correctly, as being a Learner I may have written it incorrectly.

I'm retired, and keep myself busy and happy with my computer and digital photography. This year our youngsters, two sons, treated me to some hands-on flight training in a DeHavilland Tiger Moth. I was very happy and enjoyed the experience, but due to living on a pension, am unable to continue with this. But as I had a copy of CFS1, which was very little used in the past, I dug it out for another trial. Of course since the purchase of said CFS1, my computer has been upgraded, so with the increased performance of my computer, I was really surprised with how good a flight sim could be.

So have now ordered a copy of fs2004, and a Saitek Evo Joystick to further my enjoyment. And now the reason for my first query must be realised. I'd love to have a chance of having a sim version of the Tiger Moth, please!

Else, is there anything very similar?

Thanks for any advice, or words of encouragement.

Appreciate.

Ken.

Welcome aboard fellow tail-dragger, I have a liking for vintage aircraft also.

This is one that was pay-ware and is now free.

Here are a few more aircraft and textures that are added to an existing aircraft.

Thanks a bundle Radarman, and for the quick response.

Must apologise, as I found that I should have put my request in the Aircraft Topics, and should have tried a search, which I have now done, and found that Forum Member Davec (Hope thats right), had a TM addon.

So with both your help, I should find something to try 'my seat of the pants' art on. I say this, as when flying the real TM it was definitely a SOTP experience. Brilliant.

Thanks again, and I'm getting a lot of enjoyment just reading on this Forum. Very Happy Very Happy

PS .............. Have just been to AVSIM, what a gold mine of birds, found some other favs of mine, very grateful for the URL.

Can't wait for my fs2004 to arrive, and must get the TM, Lancaster, and Mosquito from AVSIM, have had joy rides in all those, and a B17, must get one of those also. WOW! What a fantastic time I'm looking forward to. Yes, I was in the RAF, ground crew, and when the planes were not on special ops, we often were invited onboard. Nearly sixty years ago, gives the game away........ Laughing Laughing

Hi Insight, a 3G turn in a Chipmonk sounds quite amazing. Must have been a mite bumpy that day. The flights I've had in the TM were a bit bumpy, but that is the nature of the plane. Doesn't worry me, and I have a cast iron stomach. Think my first flight was in a personel carrier, a DC3, and I sat looking out at the wing, and was amazed to see the flexing. I made enquiries later, and was assured that if the wing didn't flex, it would most likely snap off. Laughing Laughing

Must look into the Chipmonk, could be another interesting one to fly. Thanks..

Cheers.....

It's strange how like minds can often be thinking alike - I too was wondering where I could add a "Tiger" to the stable as I have happy memories of being taught to fly as a teenaged cadet at the RN College at Eaton Hall between 1943 and 1945. The end of the war put an end to that! And, just as I was getting into takeoff and landing.

Also retired and enjoying FlightSim as a get away from it all, particularly having added the scenery and terrain addons. My QTH looks much better now!

Well the wait for FS2004 is over, arrived this morning. But I'm afraid I'm having a lot of trouble trying to fly using keyboard, etc. Gee! I ordered the Joystick, before FS2004, both from Amazon, both were claimed to be in stock, and now Amazon say it won't be sent till next week at the earliest. Crikey! I shall have a graveyard full of crashed birds by then. Laughing Laughing

Bummer, they tried to do that to me once, split up an order.

Here are all the keyboard commands. Print them out (I did) and you'll always refer to them even when you get the stick.

Thanks RadarMan, downloaded unzipped, but no way of printing it, as I don't use/have MS-Word, and my usual WP doesn't accept Word Docs. Another bummer, as you say.

Not to worry, I have a copy of the Sybex "Strategies & Secrets", which has the keyboard assignments. Might make a photo-copy of the relevant page(s), for quick reference.

Thanks for your kind thoughts.

Regards.

Have to repeat once more, Laughing , Thanks RadarMan that is very good, something I wish I'd have long time back. Have tried various text editors, etc., but none were of much use with Word Docs.

Worked a treat, will have use for it in future. Appreciate.

I never used it and I'm glad it works well.

I may have missed something but Windows comes with two 'text editors'

Notepad - for simple text files

and

Wordpad - for formatted text (RTF) which will also open 'doc' files

Well Wondering, I've both, as you say standard equip. But neither will read Doc files with any graphics contained, at least not in my experience.

The best I've found till now, for my use, is EverNote. Which really is a database for notes, but also an all round performer.
