I'm really impressed by your work !

Just don't forget that the wing is fabric covered from the main spar to the trailing edge of the wing just as the control surfaces are.

Best regards,

Håkan

Looking good !

But it must be a lot of hard work to get it as scruffy as the original ?

ROFLMAO! :-D A slug under anaesthetic performing a slow roll while stapled to a table which has been set in a 2-ton concrete slab has a better roll rate than many of the 172's I've piloted. :evil: As an experiment I removed all the null zone from the Safir control responses using FSUIPC registered ...

She does use quite a lot of runway, I saw someone here saying she'd make a great bushplane, I'm a bit sceptical about that. I'm not sceptical at all. The Safir's take off performance isn't anything to write home about. It's very reluctant to leave the ground compared to a lot of other light singles...

[quote="snave"]As I said, it's a spring-assisted manual undercarriage: There appears to be no mechanism in the cockpit for locking the gear up or down, just the lever for raising and lowering.

Here we go again:

Siai-Marchetti 208 ? or maybe 205 ?

They seem to be scattered around the world and has also been employed by a number of air forces.

Voyager,

The fact that the two aircraft is based at Viared just can't be a coincidence !

Why didn't I think of that? :roll:

So I was wrong again :( Here are a couple of more wild guesses: :D Piper Arrow II or IV ? I don't belive any of them have been made as a commercial FS product even if DF has mentioned that there might be an Arrow III. I wouldn't call any of them warbirds but since they are serving with a number of a...

I see the light ! :-D Pilatus PC-7 !!!!!!!! The connection with the Safir is that both types has served/is serving with the Austrian air force together with a number of oyher SAAB aircraft. They are both two seat military trainers with a prop up front. The PC-7 has been sold to a number of airforces...

My AN-2 Suggestion isn't really serious :D It could be something from the Bücker family just like Voyager suggested. The Bücker Jungman, Jungmeister and Bestmann were all designed by A.J. Andersson who designed the Safir. None of them has a retractable gear though, but they are all designed in the t...

I'm putting all the little pieces of information together and I belive the next project has a wingspan of 18.18 meters and is powered by a nine-cylinder radial engine, propably a ASh-62R. The type has served in the Ethiopian Air Force together with the SAAB Safir. The designers name is Oleg Konstant...

A wonderful idea Kent !

I support your suggestion to 100 %

Maybe I can be qualified for some Beta-testing...I'm no expert on the type, I've only logged about 100 hours in it, but I volounteer if there is anything I can do for such a project.

Best regards,
