[SU6+ COMPATIBLE] [VR READY] [MODERN/NATIVE] [CLICKABLE] [ANIMATED] [PAINT KIT]


The Gee Bee R3 Special is a concept modern racing aerobatic aircraft that has never been built as a real full-scale aircraft. It was designed by Italian designer Mirco Pecorari and features typical Gee Bee lines but is streamlined to be a modern hot-rod among Gee Bees. This Gee Bee R3 rendition is equipped with a fuel injected Lycoming AEIO-580-B1A engine, delivering 315HP to 3 blades at a constant 2,700RPM. Designed to be used competitively in racing, she shreds through the skies with unprecedented speed and agility; giving you the ability to do knife edges, flick rolls, hammerheads, 9G turns, and way more! We have also crammed 75 Quarts (5-Minutes) of Nitrous Oxide (NOS) in the rear. Just like emergency boost provided in many WW2 Warbirds, you'll have the ability to ramp up your engine to an additional 25% performance increase to take lead and take 1st during any race! If you're looking for some extra flair, the Gee Bee R3 is equipped with multiple smoke canisters (Red, White, Orange, Blue, and Green), a Garmin 430/330 set that can be swapped out mid-flight for the GTN 750 (PMS50 Mod Required), and automatic asymmetric speed-brake activation on the nose when you need to perform sharp turns or manual deployment for when you need it most.

I rarely review things or give them a score, but this time I felt obliged to do so, Being really impressed by what "got friends" released for free, I decided to give them some support and buy their first payware product! I can absolutely recommend this airplane, it flies really great, and have been loving and flying it all the time since I bought it! you can't go any better for the price !!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!

Fun little aircraft

Can i buy this as a present for a friend? It is his birthday today.

Yea, no smoke with SU6 and with the V 1.0.2. Great plane! Hope to see he smoke working again soon!!

headsup...

su6 has broke my smoke. now flows down and to the left side

The Gee Bee R3 special, a fantastic aircraft :

i can't see captain on cabin crew?

Buenos dias buena gente, no puedo activar el humo de colores en esta maravilla de avión, le doy a los botones de smoke y no sale humo de color por ningún lado. No se si estoy haciendo algo mal o si tengo que activar algún interruptor mas para poder disfrutar de las estelas de color. " I need support " alguien me puede ayudar con esto ? Gracias y un saludo

I liked the Vertigo, now I love the Gee Bee. It's my favorite plane in the game. Amazing STOL performances thanks to the speed brakes coupled with good engine power. I want more paywares from Got Friends and Got Gravel - I'll be queuing to be the first one to buy them.

I bought this plane to show my support for the Got Friends (and to recognise their past achievements).

Then I became hooked on a great aircraft.

Best $16 I've spent in a long time! Aerobatics is a blast in this aircraft, and I love flying at close to 0 knots using the speed brake and high angle of attack.

Question: Is it possible to bind the smoke on/off to a keyboard/controller?

This is the most fun plane I've ever flown, and for sure best value for the money. Very responsive and fast. The speedbreak is great for...well not overspeeding, and a must when landing. It's awesome for sightseeing or just swooping in and out between the clouds.

Great work Got Fiends!

Loving this plane, I'm confused about the new update, do the livery changes also apply to the version here? If so, is there a way to make the original branded liveries as a separate replacement download on this site? I really love those and will be sad to see the branding go.

I love this plane, I can do almost flawless aerobatics in it, any flaws are on my part, lol. I can do a nice Lomcevak with almost 2 somersaults, need to work on it, but this plane is very controllable.

I can hop n any airplane, default or pay ware and point it toward the ground and recover, but the default aerobatic planes over the last couple of updates in MSFS have been sometimes uncontrollable after nosing down more than about 30% for me, I do not know why. But this plane fills my aerobatics needs.

I found that with the speed brakes I can even fly out of short grass fields. It is awesome. As a matter of fact I am going to shoot and airshow type video out of the pay ware Johnson Creek airport in the sim, 3U2.

It is in the mountains of Idaho, beside a creek with mountains and tall fir trees all around, and set up like a fly in with tents out by the planes and everything.

This planes gets in and out fine and can do Lomcevaks and Hammerheads all day there between the tall mountains, it will be spectacular.

Thank you developers, keep it up.

I'm confused by the amount of "angry" ratings ... it is utterly superb! Amazing fun, and one way to say thank you if you enjoy the free Vertigo.

But, will it crop dust? https://youtu.be/omMAYqDkb7E

1.) Read the manual! I just tried to fly without at least glancing the manual and my first flight had been a disaster 😊. Especially the chapter about flaps is, eh, very revealing.

2.) Air brakes are mandatory! Bind them to an easy accessible key and landing will become MUCH more easy.

Fly low and fast for most fun (and sweat).

If you like the free Gotgravel planes this plane should not disappoint you.
