alternative to cessna caravan

well i've been enjoying myself flying around my new terrain, and so far the plane i've used for valley bombing is the cessna caravan - except i hate it and it's not really suitable for valley bombing is it.

is there something about that size, but more modern, faster and still easy to fly?

my knowledge of planes doesn;t extend far beyond large things.

This has also been a favorite. It's not much like the Cessna you want though.

nah but i love it! haven't landed it yet though...i tried landing at zell. touched down fine, pushed the breaks and it frontflipped. i hit replay to take a screenshot but then it reloaded grr. oh well. i love it. the roof window is nice for looking at the mountains. it's a superb aircraft. flying it upside down...etc.

it came with a paintkit, any suggestions hehe?

Nice screenshots, I'm glad you like it.
Yes it's nose heavy if you hit the breaks to hard after landing, just cruise it for a while and enjoy it.

the problem is zell is a short runway. rather too short, so i can't cruise. oh well, i'm going to take some time with this plane. i've read the manual, it is going to be wierd landing a flapless plane mm. oh well. i had my eyes on the beechcraft bonanza just now, that's nice looking. again though, i don't know about planes this size - what're things like that like?

I haven't flown it for a while but I'm positive it has flaps, I usually land full and taxi that way also. That keeps me slow so I wont tip over when I turn to park.
