The Beechcraft Staggerwing.

The Beechcraft Staggerwing.
The G-17S was the last of the line; it was introduced in 1945 and only 20 were built, mainly because it cost $29,000 and the B35 Bonanza was about to hit the market at about $8000.
The last of a long successful line of negative stagger biplanes. This model has moving parts, a pilot figure, transparent glass, Nav lights, 3d wheel wells and a deep red specular shine. Roger Gilbert's Custom Beechcraft panel is included.

It's fast and handles nicely, I flew around the San Francisco area, touch and go at 4 airports.

A sweet looking plane, RMan. I'm not a big fan of tail draggers, but believe I could enjoy loafing around some nice scenery in that. Thanks for sharing it. Group Wave

Very nice radarman but 2 questions -
1. Isn't it a bit out of proportion - even allowing for perspective, that's a big truck in the background and the Stagger looks massive. In your image above it looks very big against the fuel station and the a/c in the background.
2. You can't afford to touch the joystick - the a/c seems to be oversensitive except in the case of the twist stick in taxi-ing - it doesn't answer at all and I have to control it on the number pad '0/enter '.

Or is it just me being hamfisted???

davec,
I usually take screens to show off the aircraft so it will look out of proportion to the background, as to the handling, I do have a "twist stick" and found this particular craft to handle beautifully.
As I said, I enjoyed flying it so much that I did touch and go at 4 airports, it did handle well, a change from some of the ones I tried but haven't posted.
I guess all sticks are different, I use a MS.
This was a nice find. If you "play" around with it for a while you'll find that it "grows" on you.
