Need a "great" bush plane (must be keyboard freindly - no joystick)

I am a huge fan of Aerosoft's Beaver collection, but alas, they have not chosen to upgrade it to be compatible with P3Dv4.5+. Milviz version is terrific, but requires a "stick". Lionheart's Quest Kodiak amphibian is also great, but a little heavy for tight bush landings in Alaska. Took a chance with Perfect Flight's Beaver, but no amphibian, ski, or tundra wheel versions. Finally, tried Carenado's C185F, but no decent AP. The perfect model for me is Aerosoft's, but I have given up asking them to upgrade their model.

 

Have I missed any good models that have multiple versions (wheels, Tundra, Ski, Amphibian) and decent electronics in the panel? It's frustrating...

 

Thanks guys!?

Thanks. Unfortunately I need Tundra, Skis, Floats and wheels for P3Dv4.5 compatibility. It appears Fight Replicas options wont work...

Easy.

 

1st. Most civilian aircraft I use regularly have yokes, not sticks. In particular, Beaver, Baron, Quest Kodiak, Phenom 505, C182, Turbo Duke, etc. Yes I am aware keyboards arent natural eaither!

 

2nd. I have been simming for decades and frankly enjoy the versatility speed, and footprint of the keyboard. I tried a stick for a while recently on MILVIZ Beaver, but you still need the keyboard and flying by stick on top of my desktop is awkward at best.

 

So there we are!

So why do you not have BOTH? It's not mandatory to choose on over the other!

I have both, and use them according to need.

What about the Aerosoft Twin Otter, it has tundra wheels, ski's, amphibian and it works in P3Dv4.5 with an decent autpilot and a lot of goodies. I Fly VR, and this is still a very fine aircraft. Maybe to big.

Recently the converted Maule from FS2004, but the cockpit need some work. Is has big tundra wheels.

Virtualcol has also a Otter, you get 2 planes in the package a normal Otter and a turbo Otter, with Amphibian, ski;s wheels and tundra.

Hope this helps.
