P3D 2.5, Tongass in an old Electra

Recommended Posts

I always wanted to have a nice Lockheed Electra, not the L-188, the Casablanca one. So when I got an email today from Just Flight that they have a new one at an introductory price, my credit card started to itch immediately. I had to get it out of my wallet

 

This is going to be a short hop only from Petersburg to Kake in Tongass to get familiar with this old iron. Although the weather forecast wasn’t too nice for this trip

Warming up in Petersburg

Do I like it? Hell yes. It’s not a2a quality system-wise, but I didn’t expect that from Just Flight. And for under 20 bucks now it flies wonderful with a deep throaty sound typical for those big radials and it comes with a good looking VC. All in all it’s a nice plane to hover around our ever expanding ORBX world in style
