    The DHC-3 Otter is a single engine, high-wing aircraft designed for short take-off and landing (STOL) operations. Developed as a successor to the popular DHC-2 Beaver, it shares the same configuration but with a larger wing, fuselage and a significantly greater operating weight. It is powered by a R-1340 radial engine and it can seat up to eleven passengers and a variety of cargo, including ski-doos and motocross bikes destined for remote areas which are inaccessible to less rugged aircraft. A total of 466 were built between 1951 and 1967.

    This DHC-3 Otter package includes wheel, amphibian, float and ski variants of the aircraft, and classic and modern cockpit configurations.

    Modelled using real-world plans, the aircraft feature multiple animations and a highly detailed engine. The faithfully recreated virtual cockpit features 3D instrumentation, wear and tear, and realistic systems functionality.

    A variety of civilian and military paint schemes for each variant, realistic flight dynamics and an authentic radial engine sound set complete this extensive package.

    I've always been a fan of the Otters. JF did a really nice job of bringing the DHC-3 Otter to life here. JF can be hit or miss with their products sometimes, but they hit the nail with this one. This is truly one their better releases but not without its quirks. The Otters here are well represented in detail and flight model to a high degree. very pretty inside and out. They fly as expected, slow. For some strange reason though when flying in certain directions you get a Overspeed warning. For example flying at 2000 feet 340 degrees at 120kias you're fine. turn around and fly 160 degrees at 120kias and you're somehow over speeding the aircraft? What the....? Same speed and altitude but one direction is unbelievably too fast? I don't think so. Clearly this is a bug. I mean I have hundreds of planes and not one of them ever overspeed's at the same altitude and airspeed but in a different direction. It would've been nice to be able to place all the seats in ready to sit positions throughout the cabin rather than only 2 ever being unfolded and ready to sit in. plus an actual passenger cabin view or two could've been nice. for those missfires i deduct 1 star. But that doesn't detract from the overall satisfaction and enjoyable experience I get from flying these. FSX Steam Win 10 3.3ghz i7 16GB Ram Intel UHD 630 Integrated GPU.
