Your favorite prop?

Recommended Posts

I'm kinda getting back to flying small props, and I was wondering what was everyone flying (besides the default PRO props).I've been flying the Cessna amphibian a lot, but now i'm looking for something more fun.

Beech 1900D. :-)I'm still crossing my fingers for an accurate gMax model in the future.

I'm flying the Grand Caravan almost excusively for short-haul cargo. Every now and then I take up the 172 or the 182RG if I'm just flying around the patch or sightseeing.Captain: I thought you lowered the gear!" First Officer: You said YOU were going to do that!"

I tend to fly either the FSD Commander - or the Baron 58 (with Steve Small's Turbo .AIR files).....

Right now my favorite is the Dreamfleet Archer. I seek equally good visuals in the cockpit as well as outside views. While the virtual cockpit is very god it is not perfect and, of course, neither are the roads, rivers, and shorelines of FS2002. The overall sensation is well balanced however.Dick

Can anyone give some feedback on Carenado's Beechcraft Bonanza.I saw some amazing screenshots of the exterior of the aircraft but I wonder about the VC and it's flight dynamics ???SteveCYYZ

lately i've had a lot of fun flying the B-25, A6M5, and C-47 from CFS2 in FS2002. If those aircraft aren't available to you, I've also been having fun flying the Aviat Husky (i forget who made that).

Carenado's Bonanza is outstanding. I like it much, especially the vc; it must be the most usable vc I've seen till now. Right now, for me, it stands neck and neck with the Archer; I keep switching between the two all the time.Cheers.

I have been reading all the responses about favorite small props. I would tend to agree with all the choices. I have most except the Archer from Dreamfleet. I haven't bought it yet. However, my most favorite to just do some "punchin holes in the sky" is the de Havilland Beaver (beaver7.zip). It doesn't have a VC, but it does come on wheels, skies, and on floats. Works well in FS2002. It's great fun to fly.MikeD

Does the DC-3 count as a small prop in todays terms (747, Airbus 340)? If not then the Cessna 337 Skymaster. Still waiting on it. (Mikko, hint hint.)

Supermarine Seafire LF III. Fast and light, fun to fly, high ceiling. Includes a working, beautiful VC. Radio and GPS have to be added to the panel (not very hard to do).

Hi Caveman,For me its a toss up between the Dreamfleet Archer and the Debonair, I like them both, each have their good points. I am going to look at the Carendo Bonanza soon, hope its just as good.RegardsPeter.
