• Review: F-86 Sabre From Milviz

    Milviz's Rendition

    In its product description, Milviz touts high quality internal and external modeling as well as realistic flight modeling, avionics, lighting, and custom effects. "The model was created by using high quality digital photos and many, many countless hours of testing, revising and testing again," Milviz says in its product description. Six high definition liveries are offered.

    What I Found

    The F-86 Sabre by Milviz is very true to the innumerable photos I found on the Internet. Dimensions and physical details are accurate. Surface textures and lighting effects are realistic. The liveries match the innumerable real-world photos I found on the Internet.

      Tech support is actually supposed to be via Milviz forums...

      The knob on the lower left corner of the gyro compass will rotate the card to whatever magnetic heading you wish to place at the top of the instrument. It is not "fixed" to the N position.

      This comes in handy whenever wishing to set and follow a specific heading with an easier reference point.

      If you read to the end of the article there is a link to where you can purchase it. All our articles are done this way.

      Well I found it. Followed the installation to the letter. When I tied to switch to another aircraft this model or another in my library it locked up my program. What did I miss? Now I feel like I wasted my money. I have hundreds of other aircraft that have functioned perfect dating back to 2004 FS9 and recently FSX. I know FSX is tricky in windows 7 but I have everything else working the only thing I did not get was the EZCA. Anything about that? I would just as soon play with the aircraft since now I own it.

      Thanks, Bill. I really appreciate your "test pilot reports" on how to fly the planes. Very helpful to me.
