Years ago, when I was painting my Corby Starlet G-CCXO after a major upgrade, I spotted it flying on the internet. Amazing - it hadn't yet flown in real life! I then realized it was a flight sim model, made from photos of XO I had placed on my website. I considered it a compliment.

I downloaded the model and flew it on FSX. It was pretty good, but not perfect in terms of flight dynamics. I had some correspondence with the model writer to discuss these differences. He welcomed my first-hand knowledge and made adjustments to make match my aircraft (rate of climb, control response rate, glide angle, etc) and finally, I found it a very good simulation of my aircraft.

I've stopped full-size flying now as my age advances, and I sold my aircraft in 2022 and started simming again. I have FSX and FS2020 on my new flight sim computer. Alas, I can't get this model to work in FS2020. Can anyone help me to convert it? Or is there a suitable model I can get? I'd really like to get XO flying in FS2020, I miss it! It is a brilliant little aircraft.

A fun little plane! A pleasant change to flying "the big bad jets". Thanks, guys.

I fly "lo n slo" just as I did in the "real" world. My First was a Quicksilver UL (I cannot find a sim model) then a Corbin Ace, Fisher Koala, and last, a Teenie Two ( can't find?) I downloaded a CORBY CJ 1, which is now my favorite sim plane to fly. It handles and flies like the real thing; a lot like my teenie 2 did. Whoever did this one really deserves an A+. It doesn't slide around on taxi, and handles great......thanx... Mr Skip
