Looking for small amphibian for P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

  Anyone know of a small amphibian for P3Dv4, either freeware or payware?   I have the Beaver and Twotter but would like to have something smaller along the lines of the RealAir Scout amphibian.

Thanks in advance

Thanks Bert.  I have the Scout in P3Dv4 but the gauges don't seem to work, unless there is a work around I'm not aware of yet.

Thanks Bill, that looks like a good deal on the C185.

I'm hoping I can get the Scout to work too.

EDIT

 Found out I hadn't copied over the gauge files for the Scout and now they all work ok!   Will still take a look at the 185 though.

This one while not an A2A, isn't too bad.

The 185 hasn’t been updated to v4 yet. Not sure If carenado are planning an update or not. It may work as is of course. Haven’t tried myself. 

If you do install it, make sure to get Bernt Stolle’s excellent “ultimate 185” fde package. Makes a huge difference. It’s freeware.

If you are happy with not so detailed models of older airplanes, the Lionheart Classic Collection might be worth a second look. Two different float planes are included in this collection: the Piper Super Pacer Float and the Fairchild 24R Float.

But on flight one, the link above show a page where the site write "Notice: This product is now FSX, FSX Steam, Prepar3D v2, v3, and v4 compatible."

How to know the verity ?

Perhaps a fault of info on F1...

I used it in FSX SE.  At the bottom of the listing they show that it is v4 compatible though.

Well, its a Carenado aircraft and it hasn't been updated to v4 as far as the Carenado website is concerned. Perhaps an error at F1?

It may work just fine of course, but I haven't tried installing.

They might be hedging their bets with the word "Compatible".  :biggrin:  Might mean might work.  Thanks for the heads up.

What about the Milviz Beaver or the Aerosoft Twin Otter? Both have an option to add floats.

Thanks all..   I havve th3e Milviz Beaver and Aerosoft Twin Otter.  Both are very good.  Was looking for something smaller.  I did get the RealAir Scout working after realizing I hadn't moved the gauges over from P3Dv3.  Went ahead and got Ant's Eaglet.  It's not an amphip but I like it.   The one I'd love to see is the Lake Renegade 250.  I'm also wondering if the SeeBee will work.  I'll go have a look.

I fly the Carenado185 Bushplane Pack in V4.1 without problems.   It is my go-to small bush/float plane because of its fast cruise speed. 

Their 172 Floatplane also works with V4 and is a good flyer.

I also fly the Lionheart Piper Pacer Package that includes a Float Plane and comes with a V4 installer.

I had the FR Super Cub installed and working well in V4 but discovered that it caused a major hit in my frame rates.  It has not been compiled using the 64 bit compiler, a must if you want full compatibility in P3d V4. 

 

I love float planes and I will be happy when A2A upgrades their Feel-There addon to V4.  It really improves floatplane flying because you can adjust the water drag and end those 2 mile runouts. If you are still flying FSX or V3, buy it, it makes a huge difference in the way your aircraft handles both on land and water.

I keep V3 on my machine to fly those aircraft that have not been or ever will be upgraded to work in V4.  The great thing about V3 is that if it worked in FSX it will work in V3.
