A little help for someone who's ben gone..

Recommended Posts

Guest

After spending "too" much (according to the wife) to get back into this hobby, I am trying to compile a list of groups who make the "highest" quality FREEWARE aircraft available for FS2002, using GMax primarily. I already have Project Opensky, MelJet, Project Airbus, and Project Fokker 70/100. Anyone else have any other suggestions to quality manufacturers along these lines? My next 2 projects are to find a quality collection of 737's (my personal fav), and some excellent general aviation aircraft. Yes, I know bout Dreamflet, but they are out of the question, as I can't afford to spend one more dime. Thanks for any pointers guys and gals.

The recently released Dash-7 is a real joy to fly. I don't know the author but there is a nice little mini-review somewhere here at Avsim. You will be amazed at just how small an airstrip you can land at.

Are you using trim keys or do you have an axis set up for it? I set one of the levers on my CH Yoke to elevator trim, and I find this bird very docile and easy to trim out. 'Course, it might be a different story with keys, I dunno.

IMHO the best freeware aircraft to date is the Falcon 50 F-CAEA by Yannick Lavigne, Fred Banting and Rob Young. Its quality is simply superb.Regards, Uwe
