Well last time I uploaded, I said I hopefully would have new uploads sooner than 10 months. Seeing as my last upload was 11 months ago, that was an utterly massive lie. But anyways, my best work yet, the DHC-2 Beaver; Workhorse of the bush. I will now return to my R&D goblin cave and make more cursed concoctions, may or may not return soon no promises kbye.


Additional Flight Notes:
I'm pretty sure people don't have the attention span to read this anyways, which is why I put the control manual at the top so people hopefully don't ask dumb questions. The only bonus info I will give you is, don't do dumb stuff and it won't crash.

    This plane does indeed fly quite accurately to how it would IRL. I fly high wing C-172s and C-152s and this just feels like a heavier version of that which it practically is. It has V-speeds that line up closely with its IRL counterpart as well. If you think it has poor control then go play a flight sim with a beaver in it and stop pestering my friend ;) @Davaskonaviatornewacc

    @Davaskonaviatornewacc you have summoned the pilot gang! as a multi engine commercial rated pilot with 600+ hours over 9 types of airplanes including two different seaplanes, being a Grumman Widgeon and a Searey, I can confirm this is the best flying and most accurate flight model I’ve seen on any aircraft in SP, ever

    @Dimitry393 Well you can't just slap on a pair of skis to a different plane like that. I made retracting wheel ski's but they were heavy and worked less time than they made the plane crash so I decided against it.

    @MAHADI Oh I was actually going to give a serious response to your reshade question but forgot. It's actually a Kenneth's Reshade preset that you can find in the description of his Valley mod, but with a decent bit of tinkering and additions made by me :)

    @Davaskonaviatornewacc You have received a strike for abusing the report system, it's best if you'd stop doing so.

    @Davaskonaviatornewacc Can confirm, he stole it from the SD card hidden under my eyelid. You should write a movie script of such true crime.
