I love that plane.  Looks like someone designed a perfectly fine aircraft but forgot the engine.  So they jacked up the wings, installed support struts and planted the engine on top.

I love the design too OND.  Are there any different training requirements for a plane with counterrotating centerline thrust?

Back in my day, if you took your multi ride in a C337 your rating specified centerline thrust only.  With centerline thrust don't how much benefit counter rotating props would be.

I'm just wondering if it handles differently.  I reckon if you back off on one or the other throttles you would just descend like a normal plane.  But I'm wondering if the counterrotating blades provide any more stability.

What a fantastic ride, and it shows how much detail there is in the scenery!

Yes, Orbx started its decor designs which are very detailed and when I had their first freeware, I cracked (quite to pay):)
