Recommend STOL aircraft

Archived from groups: alt.games.microsoft.flight-sim (More info?)

I'm exploring Papua New Guinea now and am looking for an aircraft:

- with STOL characteristics

- with a virtual cockpit (VC)

- framerate friendly

- inexpensive (~ US$15) or freeware

Any recommendations? A hefty cruise speed would be nice, but that may
not be compatible with STOL.

    How about a Casa 212 Aviocar, there's a free one at AVSIM. Great STOL and
    capability in real life and in the sim. VC is ok but more on the practical
    side with good outside visibility. Cruises at about 220 kias, IIRC.

    I fly the Alphasim V22 Osprey. Cant remember what it cost but it is
    worth every penny. Its take off and landing speed is about 30 kts,
    which it can reach in only 100 mtrs or so. It can zoom round the place
    at 275/285 kts and will fly over 20,000 ft. It takes getting used to,
    but l love it. According to my log book, lve clocked up over a thousand
    different airfields in it. Its got a/p , gps nav, night lighting, etc.
    Its great for rubbernecking.

    I don't own it but I've thought about it:
    http://www.fsd-international.com/projects/porter.htm

    There was a freeware one for FS2000 that was most excellent, but it suffered
    from a multitude problems in FS9.

    Uh... I think you hit the "dead zone" for payware aircraft pricing... It's
    hard to find anything that low.

    True! (PMDG has a couple of aircraft at that price, the Beech 1900C and
    1900D, but I don't know how suitable they are for STOL.) Still, it
    doesn't hurt to ask. I've also noticed that, when it comes to aircraft,
    more money almost always translates to lower framerates.

    Great new addition to "Murphy's Laws of Flight Simming":

    The cost of an add-on is inversely related to the add-ons frame rate.
