Of the virtual planes that I have flown I enjoy the DHC-2 Beaver the most. It just feels right. I have only flown 1 taildragger in real life, a Cessna 140 and I did not take off or land it. I have ridden in a Beaver once and it was a very stable plane.The Beaver from MSFS2000 d/l site and then the upgrade from MSFS2002 d/l site to get it working in MSFS2002.Have fun !

If you want to have a lot of fun, download the Kolb Firestar for 2k2.... It's a great taildragger for flying low & slow over 2k2's scenery...-John

On difficult to start prop planes, isolate the starter_torque line in the aircraft.cfg, and increase it until you get to a realistic setting. I've run into many aircraft.cfg's where it's set at .3, which can be way too low. I usually have success raising it to the 6 to 9 range..-John

P51 Mustang with Steve Small's flight dynamics. Absolutely superb (and free)!

I have just started flying Bill Lyons's Fleet Canuck which is great as a "SIM" aircraft - although I am now a RW pilot so I can't comment. It also has a great VC !!!

The Beaver from avsim.com/alaska is supurb and is my all time favorite and the default Extra 300 is a blast for aerobatics and from what I've heard the flight dynamics are right on the mark.
