>Does it fly well? Any bugs? Heavy on the fps?>I'd appreciate your opinion on the Twotter.It is quite a bit better on frames than even the beaver is. I don't know how they did it, but the frames are at least as good as default planes if not quite a bit better. As far as the bugs go, I haven't flown it enough yet. There isn't anything blatantly obvious. As awesome as the VC and exterior models are, I think the flight model and sounds are the true winners in the package. I'm not saying that the visual aspects aren't top notch, but the soundset and flight dynamics are over the top, just excellent. In time I believe this thing will surpass the PMDG 747X as my favorite aircraft addon for FS ever. It is just such a nice package all in one. If there is one disappointment it is that there isn't an amphibious w/gear model. I know they are rare in real life but they still exist and would have been nice to include in the package.Kudos to Aerosoft on possibly the best plane anywhere for MSFS!

>Is the kln a fully functioning unit or just the default fs>gps with an overlay?No, the GPS that comes with it is entirely different. Honestly, I don't know how to use it because I haven't used that kind before and I haven't read the instructions yet :(It looks to me like a really old version of the GNS430 as far as its functionality goes. But again I have no idea. All I know is that it is completely different from any GPS I've ever seen.

Too bad. I won't buy from them again because they triplecharged me for an $89 order a few months back, caused my credit card to get maxed out which cost me a $50 overage fee. I asked them to pay it and they refused so I refuse to do business with them again. Looks like a great product but I will never know.

I would take it that his credit limit was within $260 of being maxed out-being triple charged put him over the limit..I would expect that explaining that to the credit company would cause the credit company to refund the $50 overage charge-if they don't I'd be switching to a different company.http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/1b5baf...b9f427f694g.jpgMy blog:http://geofageofa.spaces.live.com/

It purposely has a low limit because it's the card I use to make online purchases with. Geofa is correct that it was about $250 from being maxed before it was paid off for the month and the cycle began again. The point of the matter is not the limit of the card, but that they triplecharged me (accidentally I'm sure) which caused my card to go over that limit. When I politely contacted them about it they were not willing to own up to their mistake and manage the situation. They have lost me as a customer and I can promise you in the future that they will ultimately lose much more than the $50 it would have cost for them to take care of their own mistake. It may be petty but $50 is $50 and I do not take kindly to having to pay for someone else's mistake and getting the brush off afterwards. Enjoy the otter as I'm sure it is excellent like most of their other products are. :)

If you contact the credit card company-show them the triple charge and explain the mistake they should remove that $50 charge.Back a long way back I ordered a brand new 286 66 mgz computer for at the time about 3 grand. It was supposed to come with all kinds of software. It didn't-the company shipped the computer but went out of business a day later. I called my credit company-they refunded the purchase and I got to keep the computer.Again-if your credit card will not refund I'd be mad at them. Mistakes happen, but good credit card companies will take care of problems usually promtly.http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/1b5baf...b9f427f694g.jpgMy blog:http://geofageofa.spaces.live.com/

Hey Chris,Don't mean to put a damper on your post but wouldn't it be more informative if you would download the Otter, fly it, and then give us a heads up. Being first to spot it is really not of much help. Gary :-term
