Hi all. Has anyone played the above? Is it any good? Are there more plan stats than say Blue Max Canvas Eagles?

I played it at one of the HMGS cons. It was limited to 1915-16 in the first volume. If you like CY6 WW2, you will like this. There are not many changes.

That sounds good. Does the first book cover things like Fokker DII and the various early pfalz ?

Yes, stats for the Fokker D.II are included in the book I have (earlier, pre glossy spiral bound combined volume). Also included are the
- Pfalz D.III onwards
- Roland D.I and D.II, and the Fokker EIII and E.V series that they built under licence before that.
No stats for the Morane L or earlier Fokker E.I and E.II copies but it wouldn't be hard to work out something close enough. CY6 is a simple system and doesn't get hung up on minor differences in aircraft performance.

CY6 and Canvas Eagles are very similar. You pick a maneuver and fly it. Altitude has little impact. Wings was more involved and detailed. Warbirds Canvas Falcons is the highest level of detail.

Take a look at In Clouds of Glory, I think it is one of the best flight games out there. And all free.
