- As I've stopped playing WarBirds before the birth of
Maxime, this page has been quite stagnant lately,
and will not be updated often in the near future. However, all planes available in WarBirds© as
I write this are described in
Stof's Plane Info Center (10 Dec. 99)
- Compare real Fw190 Wildcat, and Spitfire with their models at Stof's Scale Models page. (updated 10 Dec. 99)

- iMOL Online's Dawn of Aces© is an
online simulator recreating the air combats of World War I. Version 1.3 is available for
free download, and online flying is free for now ! When I'm not flying WB, you'll find me on DoA... My callsign there
is CStoff, and I belong to the
6th RFC Black Lions,
the #1 Dawn of Aces© squad for the last four tours of duty as I'm writing this (March 16, 99).
- SimGuild's Flying Circus© was the first WW1 online sim; lots of instant fun.
- Simguild is also working on a World War 2 online flight sim !
- The veteran of all online flight simulations is
Kesmai's Air Warrior©.
The best manufacturers for flight simulator control systems are:
- CH Products.
All CH joysticks have a built-in throttle. I'm now using CH F16 Combatstick, Throttle and ProPedals (rudder system).
Their ForceFX joystick offers force-feedback effects.
Fully programmable sticks and throttles at a very decent price.
You can download my WarBirds 2.01 X36 setup.
Maybe the best ones, but quite expensive.
Microsoft's Sidewinder 3D Pro includes both throttle and rudder control system.
Maybe a good solution if you can't afford buying a good joystick, a throttle and rudder pedals.
There is a now a force-feedback version of the SideWinder 3D.
