Noob Seeking Fast Single

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am looking for recommendations for:

fast + single-engine-propeller + side-by-side-seating + civilian + easy-on-frame-rate

 

fast - well over 200 mph closer to 300 mph please

GA / Light-Commercial side-by-side instead of military fighter / trainer

I have a modest system and need something that will have lower impact on frame-rates. 

 

I already received one suggestion for the Carenado Malibu 350P, I am hoping to receive several suggestions. 

 

Thanks in advance

JD

I'll third the recommendation for the RealAir Legacy! I've put around a thousand hours on the one I have.

 

I have a pretty modest system (I7 930 @ 2.8 gig, GTX 650 Ti) and it is fantastic on frames.

I'll forth that! Another aircraft that comes to mind when I think of the Legacy is the Lotussim L-39. It's neither side by side, nor prop - but it's super easy on the frames and very fun and satisfying to fly.

Another vote for the Legacy--it's incapable of going slow and is awesome in every way.  Exactly what you're looking for.

I don't know if it's been mentioned but I really like the  RealAir Legacy.

yep, another vote for the Legacy.

 

If you want more speed and think you can handle a big V-12 up front, the Civil Mustang is fantastic too, probably the fastest piston GA available for FSX.

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet but if not check out the RealAir Legacy.  :lol:

I can't remember if I mentioned it earlier, but no-one seems to have mentioned the RealAir Legacy - awesome aircraft and addon. :smile:

Forgot to mention, if you remove your civil side by side requirement, take a look at Ant's T-28 series.  The A model is free, the B/C or D models are payware but very reasonable.  The T-28 is a fun military trainer.  If you can fly without a magenta line and enjoy old school avionics, the T-28 is fast, easier to fly than the Mustang and very well simulated.

It's not a true single engine, but due to the front/rear configuration, it feels more like a single engine than a twin, but with twin engine power (especially with the turbo charge tweak), the Carenado Skymaster.

It a very nice and easy to fly aircraft, it's been my favorite, ever since it came out.

 

And if you want real speed, although it's single pilot aircraft, the civilian P-51 from A2A, with well over 300kts and it's beautifully build and very detailed. Another one of my personal favorites.

Thanks to all of the votes for the RealAir Lancair Legacy,

 

I am revisiting the freeware “FSX Emerald Legacy” that I found earlier, for me it was almost impossible to trim, so I went looking for a parameter to adjust and found “elevator_trim_effectiveness” and changed it from 1.3 to 0.1 and now it is tolerable to fly even fun to fly :)

 

With all of the recommendations for the RealAir brand I will try out their offering pretty soon.

 

Thanks and keep those suggestions coming

JD

 

The Pilatus-P-12 has also been added to my list.

The T-28-Trojan and P-51-Mustang also sound fast and fun, but these are for a different quest.

I really think you'll like it. I've been simming since 1982  ( FS2. God I feel old. Is there any hope for us old folks? LOL) and the RealAir Legacy is the best GA I've ever found.

If anyone is interested in an unsupported turbo speed mod for the RA Legacy, PM me... Can easily do 300+ KTAS at altitude
