Looking for a Twin for FS2020

Recommended Posts

I was hoping Flysimware would develop the MU 2 for FS2020.  
 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

The Carenado Piper PA34 Seneca is probably the best payware option at the moment. I did a review of it here on my channel; it has some nice touches, including being able to do a proper feather of the prop for single engine ops and you can do an airflow restart when airborne if you want to get the engine going again. Graphically it's very pretty, including having animated features in the passenger cabin, and the sounds are good, although some people have said otherwise on the engine noise, but I disagree and think these are well done.

The BN-2 from Black Box Simulations is useful in Air Hauler. Some have complained about the graphics on the thing as not being stellar; I think they're 'alright' but you can decide for yourself on that score if you check out my review of that one.

The Virtualcol Beech 99 is a cheap and cheerful choice. This one is graphically very basic in the VC, although the exterior model is nice. that too is good in Air Hauler.

The Next Gen Simulations Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante, is another one worth a look for Air Hauler, and if you are curious about that, I reviewed that one too, here.

You've also got the Carenado PA44 Seminole, but personally I think their Seneca is a bit better from a technical standpoint.

As Chock says, the Carenado PA-34 Seneca is surprisingly good all round, has an interesting mix of systems to learn/play with, and it flies really nice. 
I was shocked at this because some offerings from them have been lacking in the past.


I like to fool airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio!

You guys are really twisting my arm to buy this plane now. As you said I'm used to the typical "all show and no go" Carenado production line but I can not stop seeing all the praise this plane is getting for breaking that mold..

Well I certainly don't regret spending the money on it, and I am flying it a lot. 

Some people have said the sounds aren't very good, but I just don't get it, the engines in particular sound great to me. 

On take off as you go up through the rev range, at one stage, the deep off beat growl even reminds me of a Dakota (DC-3 / C-47) - maybe that is a bit worrying then 😆 but certainly the sounds aren't flat or unexciting.

Just to concur that the Seneca is a treat.  My current goto unless I'm puttering around in the Asobo Top Rudder 103 STOL.

And one other thing to consider with both Carenado offerings, the Seminole and Seneca, they are actively working to implement the GTN750, which will be great!

Make sure you can deal with that windscreen deicer, before you get your wallet out. It is pretty distracting.

Yeah. I just got done watching a review of this plane.. Impressive for Carenado. Definitely above their standard cookie cutter aircraft w/ tons of glits and gloss..

But I could not un-see that windshield deicer. I was like a mosquito attracted to a light the entire time with that thing

Any idea when the Aerosoft Twin Otter might drop?

Not a clue. I'd suggest maybe haunting the Aerosoft forums and seeing if they announce something, but personally I can't be doing with that place myself, it's an awful forum with a lot of mean-spirited people there who, if they acted like that in person face to face, would probably get a slap, and deserve it.

Probably not until very late summer or early fall of this year.

The Carenado Seneca is really nice and I also quite enjoy the Seminole.
