On Monday I’m heading out on a long trip across the U. Due to the simple design of the aircraft, I will take the luxury of reviewing both the prop and jet versions. The operation of the aircraft is fool proof. Talk to you soon! It starts easily with the flick of just a couple of switches. The team at IRIS have once again released a high quality product which will provide a great deal of enjoyment for experienced and novice pilots alike.

Again, this is also an extremely “slippery” aircraft, which does not slow down in a hurry, so descents need to be well planned. Recovery is again achieved by adding full power and lowering the nose. There is little to no warning of the approaching stall, and it happens very quickly with little visual indication that it has occurred. July 10th, , Francois, you are a gentlemen through and through. Just posted this on our news site too It has an incredible rate of roll.
The aircraft taxis smoothly, but has a tendency to exceed safe taxi speeds if you don’t keep a careful watch on your ASI which, incidentally, displays MPH and not the conventional KIAS. Each stall was recovered within feet.
I had a consistent rate of climb at around the fpm mark at 80 MPH. The aircraft itself is very light on “candy” and is true to life in offering pilots a bbd single seat flying experience. It is well worth the purchase price and I am happy to keep it in my virtual hangar.

The time now is Thanks mate and cheers! Talk to you soon! The G model is supplied with a single livery, which is a striking white, black and gold design with IRIS company logos. Once trimmed in level micrpjet, the aircraft cruises comfortably at MPH which is consistent with the figures quoted by the manufacturers of the real aircraft.
Once lined up, smooth application of full throttle sees you accelerate rapidly and the aircraft will start to rotate off the runway at around 50 knots with 1 notch of flaps and full elevator input.
Remodelled from top to bottom and featuring brand new flight modelling, audio and a new virtual cockpit, this product has been designed for flat out, full throttle fun! All premiu are GMT Getting this bird back to earth is a simple affair, as long as you have planned well in advance. The J will stall in clean configuration at 60 MPH with around a foot drop in altitude if you react quickly.

IRIS – Aerobatic Series – BD-5J Microjet [FSX]
Recovery is again achieved by adding full power and lowering the nose. February 20th, Interestingly, the aircraft does not seem willing to fly itself off the runway without some backward stick, although I did discover an unusual effect that saw the aircraft stick to the runway under full throttle through knots, and then fly itself off the runway when power was cut to idle.
The pilot, however, is not animated and this results in a feeling of the model being unfinished and lacking that final polish and attention to detail expected of IRIS work. The team at IRIS have once again released a high quality product which will provide a great deal of enjoyment for experienced and novice pilots alike.

Donation System provided by vBDonate v1. This is a great little aeroplane that is a lot of fun.
Results 1 to 3 of 3. Recovery was achieved by applying full power and lowering the nose. A nice little addition is a small toggle switch for a smoke system which is handy if you want to chase your own tail through the sky!

The aircraft is resistant to spinning, however it will begin to oscillate side to side like a falling leaf if igis is stalled with power at idle. Due to the simple design of the aircraft, I will take the luxury of reviewing both the prop and jet versions. The cockpit is simple and clean. Braking is firm and smooth.
All control surfaces are animated and move smoothly with control inputs. Thanks for the plug Francois. The operation of the aircraft is fool proof. Having said that, I did find a suitable reduction in airspeed from drag induced by crossing the controls which is not something that is consistently modelled in FS. As with the prop driven half-brother, there is little warning of an approaching stall, so you must be ever vigilant on maintaining your airspeed, particularly on approach.
Flight Dynamics Naval HQ. The canopy is also animated. Instead, pilots are left to take a quick look out of the cockpit to confirm correct flap position which means that aircraft configuration needs to be set up well in advance to ensure your concentration is where it needs to be at vital moments like short final approach.
At the stall I saw the rate of descent jump dramatically, but the aircraft retained the same attitude that I had set prior to the stall.
During testing, I reduced power and allowed the airspeed to decrease whilst I held the aircraft in level flight. The panel is similar in design to the G model however, it is a little more advanced given the powerplant that is driving the aircraft.
July 10th, Interestingly enough, half way through production Dave recommended a new song which I think really brought this video together. Once in the air and cleaned up, the aircraft is best described as a “sports car”. Once set up on your landing profile, the aircraft will behave predictably and will fly itself on to the runway with minor power adjustments. The engine is extremely responsive to throttle input, and accelerates smoothly on releasing the brakes.
As I have said earlier, this is a very slippery aircraft, and will not slow down easily. Francois, you are a gentlemen through and through.
August 28th, Just posted this on our news site too There is little to dislike about this product, and the positives far outweigh the negatives.
