Request opinions on the Wilco Piaggio

Recommended Posts

Hello gentlemen,Anyone willing to give me their opinion on this plane? Seems to have gotten a pretty bad rap a couple years ago and I'm wondering if Wilco ever corrected the bugs in it.

I can some it up in one word: JunkIt seemed nice in pictures, but it's clunky. Something is just off about it. I can fire it up at my friend's house this weekend when I see him and give more detail. I will admit that I was not a fan of the Piaggio to begin with, so my interest level was low.

The Piaggio is a neat plane, I'll give it that. It's fast and makes an interesting noise....One for Real Air to tackle? The King Air!

I wish I had read this thread before buying. I have so many problems with this aircraft I should not begin to list them. Spent an hour just trying to figure out how to use the EfIS that I never located. The controls on the MCP are all is all but impossible to change, taxi's at 70 knots at idle power, the list goes on. The manual is about 4 pages with little information.

I guess that what you get for $27. Thank god for the expensive packages from company's like PMDG where it all simply works and works well.
