LAGO Twin Otter ?

Recommended Posts

Who has it? What do you think ? I've been to LAGO's website but haven't heard an opinion here or seen a single shot in the Screenshots Forum. I have Eric Dante's twin otter and absolutely love it. Just curious what others think. Thanks a lot. Greg in KAVL.

I've got it, and I love it! There were quite a few well-publicized "teething pains" with this aircraft, and a lot of people were very vocal in their unhappiness with the original flight model. However, true to form, Lago has been steadily working on righting those problems, and have released a 1.10 patch that substantially improves the craft on all counts. The model is outstanding -- a very nice piece of work. And the VC is not to be missed. All in all, I'd say it's one of the finer payware add-ons available right now. Unfortunately, the hoopla surrounding its release will probably scare off a few folks. I think you'll find that if you give it a chance, you'll like it.

Thanks Bill. I probably will buy this plane. I have many LAGO products and I am very happy with all of them. And LAGO's customer service is top notch. I wish they sold cars and homes. I was a bit curious as to the silence on this particular forum regarding the twin otter. Thanks again. Greg in KAVL

I bought it and love it. Bought it on the strength of LAGO's reputation. Like you I have a good many of their products and all of them are top notch and recive good customer service.Be warned, this isn't a push the buttons and fly plane. Very little is done automatically for you. If you like yoke and rudder work its a good plane to purchase. Lots of fun.It can also be system intensive, so keep that in mind when making your decision.Dave Spurlock

Like the others before me, I love that plane.Flies very well, great panel and I even like the VC (which is pretty much a first for me...).Looks very good too, hope Igor will release the shortnose version he's been teasing us with :-jumpy

Hi Guys,I happened to "fly" the Lagootter this weekend at a friend's. Maybe I'm negative, but I see no personal need for it, as long as You do not care for float or ski devices and opening doors. Personal, I think the nose/cockpit windows look weird, but I may be wrong.For a "plain" otter, the nice free one is a beauty in visuals, and if You visit Barry Blaisdell's site (www.flightsimnetwork.com/premaircraft), You can get a good soundset and panel, too.I cannot comment on the FDE accuracy since I'm no real-world pilot.Other opinions are welcome, especially if You need amphibians.CU, ToMey
