"Finally finished that Sky King of yours. Flew it for the first time last week - and several times since. I use the new OS FS 81. Wow, what a gem. A real pussycat. It handles like a trainer but still will do loops, figure 8s, fly inverted – anything you want. I usually fly it with flaps down. It flies slower and still has the sensitivity I like (full controls). So, for the old-timer guys like me, this plane is a messiah.
"Am considering the bigger one to try distant flights around the Philippines."
