FSX Douglas D-558-2 Skyrocket Rocket Model v1. This model is a rocket engine-only Douglas D-558-2, which reproduces the second unit by Scott Crossfield, who achieved Mach 2 for the first time in humankind on November 20, 1953. The turbojet engines have been removed, and it is powered only by rocket engines. This D-558-2 was unable to take off on its own, so it was held on the belly of a Navy-spec B-29 and launched from the air. In this model, the ability to configure up to four engines in FSX is assigned to each rocket chamber with four cylinders on the XLR-8 rocket motor. Since this is a rocket engine, you should always fly at full throttle. This FSX D-558-2 speed control toggles each chamber on and off. The fuel consumption rate is very bad. At full throttle, it can fly at an altitude of 10,000 feet for about two and a half minutes, and at 30,000 feet for about six minutes. When landing, use up all the fuel and glide like a glider to land. So setting up FSX with no fuel limit is no fun! FSDSv3.5 model by uenoshing.
