Hello from Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.

I started in 1979 when I purchased a Home-built airplane . It was a Davis DA-2A SN #51 registration  N72RJ.  I flew it for 10 years between 1979-1989 and put about 2150 Hours on it before selling it to a chap from the UK at EAA here in Oshkosh, WI.. It is still flying under the registration G-BPFLG in the UK.

I used an Apple II for flight plans and the first FS.

I am almost 68 now so decided to get into sim again after seeing MSFS 2020. It is because of this group that I am on the way to getting the hardware for my build.

I already have ordered the Honeycomb Bravo throttle and am on preorder  for the Fulcrum yoke.

Welcome! I had to google the Davis DA-2. It's a baby Bonanza!! :cool:🍻

I wonder if someone will create a DA-2 for FS2020 somewhere down the line? One never knows!

It was a great plane and never let me down in all the tears of flying it. Yes there were not that many built but mine is still flying in the UK.

I too had to "Google" the aircraft. I found a wonderful and somewhat humorous article in the search:

https://www.kitplanes.com/nextgen-heirloom/

My favorite quote from the author's wit:

Quote

The O-200 had been rebuilt with reconditioned cylinders, “so I had no idea how old or how many hours were on them,” Hutchinson said, so he replaced them with new cylinders. “It was a chunk of change, but the peace of mind is worth the money, especially in an airplane with the glide ratio of a manhole cover.”

Welcome to Avsim. I am a Sun-N-Fun veteran. I've only missed 3 since the very beginning. 

Easy for me as KLAL is my home airport.

 


Thank you.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

The Davis was a great plane and am glad to put all those hours on it before selling.

Well I have  Honeycomb Bravo throttle, and MFG Crosswind V2 rudder pedals on order and the Fulcrum yoke on preorder.

Building a sim for MSFS is not cheap but just trying to get the right pieces so I do not have to redo it soon. It will most likely take 6-8 months before I can finish it as all the parts are not available till that timeframe.
