For my purposes BN2 works fine in P3D 3.5 19475. Don't know about the TQ. (I use Saitek). I also cannot confirm how well the standard GPS works as I use Flight1 GTN 650 instead.

 

Still a favourite in the hanger, gets as much flightime as the Legacy.

The Islander works mostly well in P3D v3. However, I could never get the FMC to work.

When dragging older FSX aircraft into P3D; if not having previously installed FSX on the PC then install the three FSX simconnect versions found in the redist folder:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface\FSX-RTM\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi

C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface\FSX-SP1\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi

C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi

FMC not functioning could also be a missing dll in the xml.dll file. Worth checking out.

 

I haven't used the Islander since getting the Twin Otter Extended, but that's how I got the A2A aircraft working in P3D.

It's handy to have an unused copy of FSX to install them into to see what's added.
