Thank You. Hope one of our famous repainters think about.... I like "Bush flying" and the Otter is a typical aircraft for this job. And it gave me more the impression of "flying" than the "Dreamliner" i fly at the moment for a review for FS-Magazin.... Sometomes is "Back to the roots" better den this over-sophisticated flying robots.

I know, such a great aircraft, I was in Vancouver year before last and staying down on the waterfront (photo I took attached) and sadly ran out of time to go on a flight, next time...

Thank you for the real picture and thank you for the view, flying in X-Plane.
This is flying i like. And so the Otter is the next aircraft for me, after the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. I have meanwhile the feeling, its´s time to go back to the roots.

I'm liking this one, though I have to admit that I almost always like a new aircraft when I get it! A couple of shots around Wellington

I've got it as well Greg ... what do you think of it?
I'm undecided. It seems, somehow ... Unfinished, as does a lot of the JF stuff.
Can't comment on the dynamics as I've never flown one ... But, there's just something missing.

Anyway, it fills a gap.

I think that it will grow on you, it's not as powerful as the Twin but that's to be expected. I think it's a typical low and slow bush type plane.
