  • F-Sim on iPhone

    I don't know if it has been mentioned before but few days ago I downloaded this Space Shuttle final approach simulator and boy this is fantastic.

    X-Plane Space Shuttle is a toy compared to this; the HUD is an exact replica of the original HUD and the graphics are same to none.

    the whole experience resembles the videos you see on NASA TV where they show the landing from the HUD perspective.

    here a video on youtube, it's worth a look.

    I'm curious, has really no one else tried out this one ?

    what do you think so far?

      Don't have an iphone, but that looks surprisingly very very good!

      What an amazing 'aircraft' the shuttle is, it's like flying a brick with paper wings

        hehe, kind of... it's actually really different to maneuver this thing. you feel right away that this is VERY heavy, for example if you begin to pull up at the final approach this thing still continues to fly down because of the sheer mass; it takes a substantial time to actually slow down the downward motion and to start climbing again even though the nose has been up for a long time.

        but it's actually quite fun to fly this "glider".
