ADX Traumashock sneak peak!

P3D. It's a bit late for me tonight to get the review posted on the Tomahawk. So here are just a few shots singled out of about 50 or so. What I will say now, is Alabeo has outdone themselves on a quality scale. These guys are now officially among my top 3 favorite aircraft developers. The Tomahawk is very realistic in her looks and feel. Even got out a good spin! So enjoy these shots for now and i'll be back tomorrow with much, much more!

I also had a quick blast out of Diamond Point last night on P3D. Just couldn't fault the plane. I love the guage reflections and the prop shimmer. A great addon that won't break the bank.

DAndre Newman said...

Yes very lovely! But you really have to follow the rules with this one. There is very little room for error!

Mark H said...

Did you find selecting flaps with the mouse more than a bit tricky?! I hadn't mapped a button so was looking down at the handle in flight going 0% > 100% > 0% >100% etc!

DAndre Newman said...

All control surfaces are slaved to my thrustmaster warthog. I almost never use the mouse for VFR aircraft. But I did find that the nav lights are not slavable via fsuipc and had to manually click to activate.

Im a HOTAS guy as much as possible.

Very much enjoying this so far- the FDE is very nice. The VC is lower res than I'd like in some places, but if that's a trade-off for better performance I have no problems.

Andreas Woerner said...

Nice! I learned on that thing during the mid 80s, couldnt wait for a review.

DAndre Newman said...

Should be published later today. Was able to recover from the stalls by following the proper recovery procedures. You will need all sliders set to max realism for it to work obviously. My average recovery time was 7 seconds at 7,000 feet.

Anonymouse said...

If it takes you 7000 feet to recover from a stall, you're doing it wrong.

DAndre Newman said...

If thats what you understood from my comment, you are reading it wrong.

Anonymouse said...

Well that was two of your four sentences, or 50% of your post, so I'm not sure what I'm reading incorrectly.

"Was able to recover from the stalls by following the proper recovery procedures. . . . My average recovery time was 7 seconds at 7,000 feet."

If it's taking you 7,000 feet to recover from a stall, then you're not applying the "proper recovery procedures." You should lose a couple hundred feet at most. I should know... I own a Traumahawk.

I find it an excellent plane, love flying it...Did have a sound issue at full throttle (Obvious looping) which I have reported.

I have over 100 hours of PA-38 time IRL and I have to say I am very impressed. I also noticed the sound looping issue stated above but that is the only (minor) shortfall I've seen so far. Performance at varying temperatures is almost spot on. FDE is very well tweaked in my opinion as well. At just over 20 bucks this was a solid buy for me.

DAndre Newman said...

Ok i have to spell it out for you. Starting the stall at 7,000 AMSL, my average time was 7 seconds to recover from the spin. With only a few hundred feet lost.

Anonymouse said...

Ohhhh. Makes more sense. But what is AMSL? MSL? Or AGL?

DAndre Newman said...

It's MSL.

DAndre Newman said...

To convert it to MGL at my location/position at the start of the stall, it was 5,800 MGL. I was too lazy to climb higher as she is a very slow bird.

DAndre Newman said...

Yes the sound will require an update. This was only at max power right?

Anonymouse said...

What is MGL?

Anonymouse said...

The FAA regs only require 1500 AGL for stalls, but I like to climb up to 3500 AGL just to be on the safe side, especially since the plane has a nasty tendency to want to spin. Even 3500 AGL can take a while in a traumahawk.

Mark H said...

For me it was Max Power only.

Steve said...

Only at high power settings in my case. I couldn't find any issues at lower rpms, and I was paying close attention.

DAndre Newman said...

Sorry freaking iPhone keys!! AGL.

Yes I am aware of that but I am performing multiple spins with out the climb afterward. So I prefer much more than 3,500 for simming purposes.
