Thread: Favourite Civil Two Seaters?

  1. #1

    Favourite Civil Two Seaters?

    Here are some of the ones I fly most often:

    Porterfield Turner CP65, twitchy on the ground, but a good looking VC and a unique airplane. http://porterfieldplane.ning.com/for...-65-for-flight

    Lionheart's Aerospool Dynamic is on the other end of the time and performance spectrum, and it's also payware, but it's beautiful

    Fravin's C150. So many great features!

    LIC Aeronca Champ

    Restauravia Piel Emeraude

    Bill Lyons Luscombe

    Those would be my top picks. How about you?

    Bill Lyons Cub and Globe Swift

    My personal top 3, based on usage:

    -The Stearman Model 75s by Golden Age Simulations. Love 'em....

    -I actually really enjoy the default COF Jenny and Cub. They look and fly very well, and are a perfect compliment to Golden Wings.

    -Although it might not 100% fit the definition of "civil", I'd also include Rick Piper's DH Chipmunk. Many have made their way onto the civil registers, and there are several civilian skins available on Britsim and all the regular FS sites.

    I totally forgot about the Chipmunk. Yes, it is a superb plane, and it reminds me I should fly it soon. I have too many planes already! Why would I want more? But...I do. If they're good ones.

    I like Dave Harbold's (Airhead's) Super Deke and Rick Piper's Aeroprakt A-22 Foxbat.

    Nice choices.

    Some fine one's out there, so here are a few from my list:

    Steve Myers' Davis D-1W

    Ito-san's Erco 415 Ercoupe

    Rick Piper's Aeroprakt A-22 Foxbat and his DHC-1 Chipmunk (Anybody know where his page has gone?)

    Bill Lyons' Ryan ST-A and his WACO Classic YMF-5 (technically a three-seater, I know, but a lovely flier. I'd love to see a whole-hog payware YMF-5D patterned after the current production aircraft)

    J.E. Narcizo's Cessna C-150T Texas Taildragger

    Just Flight's Piper PA-38 Tomahawk

    Just Flight's/Aeroplane Heaven's Civvie DH-82A Tiger Moth

    A lot of my favorites have already been mentioned, here's a couple others from my hanger:

    SimFlight3D C140

    Carenado C152II

    RESTAURAVIA Nord 3202

  9. #9
    Here are mine: Paul Gausdens BA Swallows, David Molyneauxs Auster Arrow, Restauravias Nord and Warwick Carters Tiger Moth

    More 2+2, sorry, I'll just mention 2 instead of four :d

    Sibwings Saab Safir and it's predessor Gunter Kramers Bf108, lovely little planes.

    Okay, so I lied. Jungmann (forget) and Bestmann (Lionhearts). Miltons Pussmoth. Ted's Miles Magister (pretending it's a Hawk) and many of his others. Ged's Percival along with many fine creations over at Britsim from Moly & Co.

    Also agree with Lyons Swift, default Cub and JF Tigermoth.

    Yes to all of the above, and add Brian Gladden's Cessna 140 (wheels and floats).

    Wow, good catch! Almost forgot about this one. I assume you mean O. Fischer's model? A masterpiece...

    One I forgot to name but certainly bears mentioning is the Flight Design CTSW Light Sport Aircraft (including a float version) that was very nicely done by the folks at Premier Aircraft Design.

    Yes, Gotta agree here. Bill's Ryan STA and Waco Classic packages were my first payware purchases. Still among the best. My current pair of favorite R/C planes, also.
    A full on Waco YMF-5 for FSX/P3D is definitely on my wishlist also.

    My fave 2 seaters: NOTE: Some are actually modeled with more than two seats, but I use them as two seaters for hauling cargo...I don't move people!

    Default Piper Cub
    Bill Lyon's Piper Cub package
    Brian Gladden's Cessna 140
    Brain Gladden's Piper Super Pacer (not really sure if it is a two seater or not....but I use it as a two seater hauling cargo into the Alaskan bush)
    FSDB Lockheed L-10 Electra (okay...it has way more than 2 seats, but I pretend the ones in the back are not there and that I am hauling cargo instead of people....never heard boxes of cereal and tater chips scream)
    J.E. Narcizo's PA-18 Super Cub
    Milton Shupe and Crew's Beech D-18 cargo variants
    Joe Binka's G-44A Widgeon (the radial powered one with the VC....not the inline one with no VC....wish that bird had a VC).

    Many of the above, but particularly the LIC Aeroncas because of the way it is possible to fly solo from A to B, pick up a visible passenger and return home, giving a bit more point to a flight.
    Rats - why won't anything work properly first time?

    Jamie,
    Can you please satisfy my curiosity - who is & where can one find 'Geds Percivals'?

    Keith,

    it's a singular, his Prentice. http://pavaservices.co.uk/cfs/ currently under (re) construction, but before his last retirement he released a beta. Seems unavailable but thank goodness he's back from the brink and back building planes, his are some of my favourite ever CFS2/FS9 planes.

    ...but before his last retirement he released a beta. Seems unavailable
    Unless I'm mistaken, his beta is still available on the FS Argentina site. Scroll about halfway down the page of the following link. There are several repaints on Britsim for this model. I hadn't heard he was updating his Prentice...which is a nice surprise! It was excellent just as a beta!

    One (two) things I like about threads like this are getting a heads-up about something you missed and a reminder about something that's been collecting dust in the back of the hanger.

    Thanks - that now rings a bell in my poor befuddled head!!!!! He is doing an update slowly & actually has asked me to see if I can help improve the FDE!! I just didn't recognise the psedonym! The interim update is on his website (I seem to have lost his web address at the moment!) & I am just waiting for some details of the Pilots notes from Martin!
    Keith

    edit: Just found the link for Jed (Jeff Marsh) - www.pavaservices.co.uk/CFS/Prentice.htm although he says its for CFS it does work in FS9
