Hey All,I am huge fan of small GA twins, especially Cessna (400 series) and Piper (Navajo, Chieftain, Aztec). I used to fly them with my father when we ran a small charter company. I have been searching high and low for a decent twin, and I found one, and a really good one at that.I would have missed it if I blinked too, I found it at Simmarket, It's a Cessa T-303 Crusader by VirtualCol. Darn cheap too, the perfect price I would say.Link:http://secure.simmar...-crusader.phtmlIt does use the default Baron sounds, but I found the 'Big Twin' sound pack in the Avsim library which fits this plane perfectly. Anyone else have this one? I am really enjoying it.

To begin with, I am a heavy metal flyer but one look at the product and I see it:- uses MFS default sounds- uses MFS default gauges- uses MFS default GPS- guessing it may be using MFS default flight dynamics (not sure about that)- has poor VC modelingHence the price and no chance to be a gem if you ask me.

I see what your saying. The price reflects that.....Nonetheless it's not the worst I have spent 7 bucks on. Still enjoying it though.Mad Dog, I know of the Aeroworx King Air (Own it), The F1 Cessna 421C (own it), The DreamFleet Baron 58 (own It). I am just getting back into FlightSim, so I am trying to catch-up. Can you point me in the direction of a few of the Twins available for FS9?Thanks for the input guys, its really appreciated!

Hi JayIn terms of payware, I think you've got the range of GA twins pretty well covered and I'm not sure there's a whole lot out there that would be a significant improvement in the same classes of aircraft. (I'm sure others will have some good suggestions) You might also want to take a look at FSD Cessna 337/O2A "push-pull" twin. I have the O2A and it's a lot of fun.Here's a couple of freeware offerings I suggest.Milton Shupe's Beech D18 and/or AT11 are excellent - unique, classic twins with a totally different ambience to the modern twins you already have.Rick Piper's HS748 is a step up into the larger turboprop world - a classic 48 pax British from the 60's-80's that is payware quality.There are others but to me those two top the light/medium freeware twin category... If you want to try a "twin prop" that is completely unique and great quality, I suggest the MAAM B25. Loads of fun, very immersive....Welcome back to the hobbyIan

I have really wanted to like the Cheyenne, but it has been one of the biggest disappointments I've ever experienced. At least on mine, the engine sounds seem unresponsive to the throttle and I never could get get some one of the gauges to work. That coupled with no support got it shelved. However, it is a great flight model and very nice visually.
