I do remembery having a Sim that had a Twinstar model on it though ?
I have been really lucky and picked one up recently in almost perfect condition hence my request. I also picked up a not so good Multiplex Magister but I believe it is called the Mentor and is red instead of blue on the sim.

Original FT Flyer and FT Delta


FT Flyer original 3ch (just rudder and elevator)
FT Delta (elevon wing)
I have actually built, flown and crashed these two models and found them over on the Flitetest Forum so downloaded them to my sim.

These two models were released by FliteTest and are not on our list.
We do have a 4ch version on the FT Flyer with ailerons on the list.

Don't think so, and they both look intereting so I'll add them to the queue.

That said, the Twinstar has a familiar shape - has it been marketed under a different name?
Looking around, I see that it's similar to but not quite the same as the Twin Otter. rick

Thanks for adding both of those over here BigDazNinja.
I'm busted, as I apparently created the Delta in response to a request on the FT forum and forgot to post it here as well.

Like the pictures of your Delta and Flyer - they look great.

And thanks for keeping me honest! rick

No problem Rick and thank you for the models.
Both of mine have been well flown and have seen better days.
I mainly fly the FT Tiny Trainer, Parkzone Radian and the XK A800 , however I have just got my hands on the Twinstar and Magister, the Twinstar is almost ready for maiden but the Magister will need a little work before flight.
I look forward to seeing what you do with the Twinstar and XK A800.

All the best.

I was going through some kits trying to decide on my next build when I thought I'd at least post this on the thread to spark some interest......

You had me at "1928", and the 3-view sealed the deal.

Now in the queue, along with a bunch of other interesting models.

FWIW, the short term queue looks like this: DH.89 Dragon Rapide followed by the F-82 Twin Mustang.
After that we'll see how it goes.

Cheers, rick

de Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide


Our never-sleeping Rick is working on this one. What a bloody cool plane it is! Sometimes you fall in love watching You Tube videos.

Incredible video - easy to see why you fell in love with it.

And it helped me pick up some details I'd have otherwise missed.
What is that small prop inboard on the left wing?
Perhaps an auxiliary generator?
