Twin engine piston for P3D?

Recommended Posts

Just a quick search for your opinions on a few of the best single pilot, twin piston engine aircraft for P3D?

I only fly GA; and usually the A2A Cessna.  I'd like to move up to something faster and more challenging.

Thanks,

Ron

I think you will really like the Realair Duke. The have both the piston and turbine. The Milviz c310 is another solid option.

+1 on the RealAir Duke Piston. It lacks a few nuances found in A2A planes, but really enjoyable....fits like a glove.

Hi Folks,

 

Put me down for the MilViz C310 - she flies like a dream and looks cool while doing it - not Duke cool - but cool all the same... A bit more realistic in terms of real ownership as well..

Scott

The piston Duke isn't out for P3D yet. Only the turbine is.

I'd look at the Milviz 310.  While the textures aren't quite up to the latest standards, they're still good and it's otherwise a big winner.  I'd also consider the Milviz B55 "Baby Baron", a personal favorite.  And if you're OK with going with a Turbine mod (real world and sim) the RealAir Turbine Duke is exceptionally good.  It is unfortunate that the RealAir piston Duke isn't P3D'd yet, as it's hands down my favorite piston twin in FSX.

However it works perfect. I use it quite a bit. No problem in P3Dv3

Great aircraft

I use it in P3D but it does not work perfect. I have problems with the extending the landing gear. One of the main gear does not extended.

Countryflyboy, a RW pilot has a 14 video tutorial series on flying twins and he uses the Milviz 310.  Check out the first one below.

I'm waiting for A2A to come out with one.

I didn't read anything that I would disagree with. I will say that the customer service at Realair and Milviz are top notch. I've screwed up a few things and Rob Young was incredibly patient.

Hi Folks,

 

Yeah - I really wanted to like the MilViz B55 - I'm a Beech guy and the model is a work of art - the only issue is the flight model - in both the B and E FDE's - you can't fly the book numbers (or even close) on approach - if you slow down to approach speed the aircraft pitches back and all you see is sky - if you fly the correct sight picture at that appropriate approach speed you're sinking at like 2500 FPM... Hah - I even purchased Air Wrench specifically for this aircraft and spent many hours trying to correct it - I made improvements but the work was incomplete... I really wish someone with more talent than me would take another gander at the FDE - as I stated - the model is a work of art and certainly worthy of another look...

 

Their C310 doesn't have this issue and flies very well...

 

Regards,

Scott

Wow - a lot of great information!  Thanks, everyone!

Dave, that's a great idea about possible upcoming sales.  I can wait that long.

Since the piston Baron isn't ready yet; and I don't want to go turbine; it may be that the C310 would be a good start.

I read a few reviews last night, and it looks great.

Regards to all,

Ron

I had to delete the info that I had given, it was not completely correct, suffice it to say, in the aircraft configuration in the landing gear area there is a list of contact or scrape points there is a number that is written incorrectly.

 

Example: 3.00, is written as 3,00 just make sure .'s and ,'s are in the correct place.

 

Once corrected your gear will work.

 

I just can't find the notes I had on it.

 

...some one beat me. lol

That's due to a minor bug in the aircraft file.  You can fix it with a one character edit:

Thanks a lot guys for the info. I'll try this when I get home.

Oh - wow - I didn't know that changed work well.  Since the config program doesn't work in P3D (maybe there's a way to get it working?) this is really helpful

 

Also noticing the interior sounds don't work like flap lever etc.

 

Anyway that's minor... my Beloved Black Beauty flies again in P3D

This issue has been fixed and was there in FSX as well. The fix is in the real Air support forum.

There is a fix for the sounds. I have the flap extensions with sound at a level you can hear very well. Its is their forum too

To fix sounds of Real Air Duke B60 V2 piston engines for FSX  in P3D replace the file "sound.cfg" and add the file "B58.wav" to the content of the aircraft "sound" folder, located normally in the path Prepar3Dv3\SimObjects\Airplanes\RealAir Duke B60 V2\sound.

The 2 files are located in the "Duke-B60-FSX-sound-archivos.zip" file in this link
