Me neither. I just heard it was the plane that Harrison Ford used to land on the taxiway XDXDXD

Well said, Larry. If we need (and we do) another aircraft with the Accusim flair, I vote for a Stearman and not for the glorified Cub aka the Huski. The Beaver would be of course an excellent 2nd best.Hook wrote: ↑07 Jul 2020, 21:39
A Stearman, a Beaver or a DC-3. Something with character. Something slightly removed from standard GA aircraft and warbirds. Something that, simply flying it is an adventure. Something with historical importance. Something that the current owners love, beyond reason or their actual value. Something... special.
I was told the same but to be honest, Scott, it would be another Lycoming engine that's not really special nor does it really have to be managed.. Accusim has evolved so amazingly with the release of the Bonanza and I'm sure with the Aerostar and you now have the know-how of a twin engine airplane. Together with the possibilities P3D v4 and v5 and maybe MSFS havew to offer I think a twin radial would be incredible. You know the demand for a good DC-3, plenty are still flying and one belongs to a fellow flight sim developer who, I'm sure, would share his knowledge as I really doubt they plan to do a DC-3. Others are still around in the US too. Another already mentioned aircraft that is so perfectly suitable to Accusim is the Beaver. You have the technical background for tail draggers, radials and floats. I am aware that there is one available that really isn't bad but the engine and float models are far from accusim quality.
I really liked that. The 250 is my favorite A2A aircraft but I could see the 400 taking that spot.Dogsbody55 wrote: ↑07 Jul 2020, 23:41How about that Comanche 400 you have tucked away?? From the videos you've shown, that thing looks like a beast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPpjxryfD0c I'd love to see those braked wheels getting dragged along under engine run up. It's a rare plane too. Less than 150 built and only about 50 flying today. Good performance too from what I've read. How about 185kn cruise at sea level??
A beaver would be great too, as would a Beech D-18. And I'd like to suggest a Convair 240 or 340/440 as your next COTS venture. There's still some flying.
