ash-274

Based on the Hughes H-1 Racer.

Priced $975,000 - $1,296,750 (Elitas website)

Provided in the cargo job where you must make knife-flight and under-bridge passes.

(Sorry, it's my first appreciation/discussion topic)

Well it's pretty obivous where they got the name from. From my intial flight with it for the stunts, it seemed incredibly twitchy.

It's fast as hell. I'd like to see some comparisons with other fast aircraft, but the stock handling is not for the faint of heart. The under-bridges with it is like taking a Formula-1 car onto a Drifting track.

 

Not sure how many liveries it has, but I've seen at least two so far, including a 'Murica flag motif.

From what ive seen:

 

-10 liveries

-Countermeasures

-Armor

-Engine

-Handling

 

Curious though how it performs vs the Alpha Z1

Loved this plane in the stunting resupply. Had many close calls but enjoyed the thrill of it.

 

The HH reference is cool, I wonder if maybe we'll get the Hercules in the future 😅

I think simple brushed aluminum will be the way to go with this one.

I can't wait to purchase this beautiful long distance racing aircraft. However, i doubt that any of the liveries have a 1930's era air racing design...

Every time I see this plane, I'm just reminded of one of those styrofoam planes that you put together. I don't know what it is.

Got to test one of these planes during a supply mission, definitely wasn't impressed. I'm not ashamed to say I totaled it 4 times. Far too sensitive for me. Maybe those better at aviation than I will enjoy it, but not for me.

I'm leaning more on chrome.

Definetly chrome. One of the few vehicles it truly can be justified on.

 

I won't even look at the price this is already purchased and has a reserved spot awaiting it. Absolutely badass

I got this in a supply mission for the first time today and I have to say I don't like it much. It feels similar to the Alpha Z1 in handling, but looks far worse imo, especially with the landing gear down.

Damn, no love for the Howard?! Have none of ye plebz seen the Aviator?!? This is a flawless tribute as far as appearances go. I would also say it handles pretty accurately as it is about 70 years old..

Yessir. It got a spot ready for it in my hangar & I'm looking forward to it.

Having such a hard time deciding between completely chromed, or white '44 patriotic livery (the exact set up as the one used in the hangar steal mission). It also seems capable of stunting a bit too, not as much as the Alpha, but squirrelly enough to stall out in some pretty cool ways.

 

Somebody pointed it out a while back, but it seems when they heavily buffed the Mallard a few months back it may have been as a trial for the handling of the Alpha Z1/Howard. Either way, they were messing with the Mallard's handling data and it probably had something to do with SR.

I was planning to go with aluminum, but the 36 Joonas posted above looks so damn good.

 

Yep, that's my theory as well. A test bed for all the different handling options for the new planes.

So its body is primary-color and wings are secondary, it seems.

I might just purchase this plane when it arrives. Fun to fly this when I get the supply mission for it.

I wish Rogue had its physics. It's well balanced and smooth.
