Just got this for Christmas, looking forward to trying it out when I get home 😊
Jack, AP, and I have it. A few others may as well. It's fun, and a challenge, as with most DCS platforms.
Well, I finally got some nozzle time on the Harrier yesterday and boy is it a lot of fun! I was surprised by how smooth and controllable it was in the hover, although get it wrong and you soon know about it.
I would say that a few years of DCS Huey flying has certainly helped me understand and appreciate the added dimension of flying in the vertical plane, but the lack of torque and vortex ring state makes the whole experience a little less bum clenching! Once you appreciate the physics of the hover and how nozzle position and thrust affect the behaviour of the aircraft, you soon find yourself in a rhythm. That said, so far i've only flown lightly loaded and in low winds.
I'm looking forward to the real challenge next, working out the weapons systems, firing off some Mavericks and managing the weight of the aircraft in order to understand it's operational envelope.
