Light GA aircraft wanted [MSFS]

Postby jpreou » Fri Jan 27, 2023 1:41 pm

Okay, so I'm after a good MSFS aircraft to close as possible match the Karatoo J6C that I fly (occasionally) IRL out of Rangiora.
High-wing, 2-seat, light weight, tube/fabric, standard instruments, no glass, no flaps, Rotax 912 engine, cruises 85-100 mph (depends how much fuel you want to burn!), tail dragger only.
I've looked at the STi Kitfox and the Parallels42 Low 'n' Slow Kitfox. Both seem somewhat over-powered and get airborne way too quickly. The //42 is also glass, and while the STi has standard instruments it does still have a glass panel too. Both are difficult to keep trimmed.
I'm looking to mimick my IRL experience so I can test-fly longer XCs before committing real dollars in the real world!
So far almost all small GA aircraft I have looked at are glass and over-powered.
Anyone know of reasonable planes to try? Keen to hear your thoughts.
Cheers
Jeff

I had the Jabiru in P3D (or was it FSX?) and nice a/c but as you say, not a taildragger. Cheers

PZL 104"Wilga"
Forget the fact that it's not an UL, it's a real typical GA bush plane with STOL characteristics. The price also seems high. But from my point of view it's the most interesting GA plane at the moment. Above all, you can fly to places that you wouldn't dare to go to with normal airplanes.
