Givin' Some Love To Default Aircraft!

Recommended Posts

I love my payware planes, but like the Maule in FSX, I'm kinda hooked on the Mooney Acclaim. I don't use it IFR even though it has the G1000, mainly it's just for cruising around the PNW, having a look about, and finding an airport that I've never visited.  It behaves nicely and has a great looking cockpit, and it's made by a payware developer! So, what default aircraft do you secretly love to fly?

I was looking at the Dodosim 206. Are you familiar with it or fly with it? If so, how does it compare to the EH101?

Dont fly any payware choppers but the EH101 is the default aircraft of choice and prob the only one I would use, in regards to the Dodosim prob best of searching for reviews..

I Gotta agree with you on both!

 

And it's pretty hard to beat the Air Creation tryc for sightseeing...

I agree with this, so many years later and I'm still flying default aircraft. I've had plenty of fun with the Cessna 172, the Baron 58 and the Maule Orion. My first add-on was the Carenado C208B which I got about 6 months ago, but I wasn't too impressed and returned to the defaults again.

My long and fast flyer is the default F-18, although it has been heavily modified using the Blue Angels updates. Makes for a great flyer, both for low ground pounding and high and fast eating miles - cruises at 700+ knots @ 40,000 feet.

 

Have to say, though, everything else I fly is payware...

I use the Trike a lot for testing new airports and sceneries a lot!

The T-6 military trainer is also good. A bit more challenging than most default aircraft, especially energy management on descent. Make sure you enable the two extra realism options.
