The Tiger Moth was the first ever aircraft produced by Ant's Airplanes. In 2019 it was rebuilt for FSX and Prepar3D, and now it has been converted for Microsoft Flight Simulator with extra detail added to take full advantage of the new platform.
Ant's Airplanes Tiger Moth features a highly detailed model, including pilot and co-pilot models, ten paint schemes and a tail slid or tail wheel option.
The package has 'Easy' or 'Hard' engine realism settings. In 'Hard' mode, oil consumption can lead to engine failure, sparkplug fouling is simulated and the engine must be properly primed to start. In 'Easy' mode, auto-start is available for those who would like a quick engine start. The fuel and oil levels are persistent and are automatically saved between flights.
A custom pop-up tablet provides access to various user preferences such as the air intake type, pitot tube style, and venturi location, as well as a simple autopilot and radios. The instruments can also be customised by selecting from three different types of airspeed gauges, two styles of altimeter or adjusting the rotation angle of the engine RPM gauge. The default Aera GPS is available as a pop-up which can be placed in various positions within the cockpit.
Other highlights include an animated propeller with realistic stopping motion, the engine cowlings and propeller can be removed for inspection and the windscreen can be toggled between clean and dirty.
The package e is available on Just Flight's website for £14.99.
