Difference between Cessna 172 and Maule

Recommended Posts

Just curious as to what the differences are in the Cessna 172 and Maule.They are both FSX planes and seem to be very similiar.Looks like the Maule has a deeper wing.Have been using both and I like flying the Maule.My only knowledge about airpalnes is what I have learned here and thru FS.Thanks,Ron

from what i understand, the maule is a STOL aircraft and, as such, excels in bush flying and other hard to reach areas. it has much more power, and has an adjustable prop.the cessna is a more modestly powered aircraft and is easier to learn and fly, which is why it is the most popular trainer in the world.

Thanks for that.That's probably why I like it.Much more reactive.Been flying the Baron which I really enjoy but can't see the scenery as well.Love the PAD planes too.Thanks,Ron
