Would be interested to know if the amphibian version can actually be steered during taxi.

The 172 steers, why would this one not?

Not in my experience, and that of many others. Same with the amphibian X-Cub.

I bought it in the marketplace. Now it crashes on download of the aircraft. Any help is appreciated.

Can anyone post a pic of the cockpit/interior? The commercial from Asobo completely ignored it.

I will in a few minutes if no one gets to it before I do

I imagine because people kept going off topic on general sim related issues and yours has been mistaken for a similar deviation. Are you fully crashing to desktop or just freezing?

Full CTD. It seems to get 10 MB each time or so and then it completely crashes the sim to the desktop. Trying it again now. It said it fetched 37MB already.

Yeah for some reason downloads have issues. I have a feeling it happens when liveries are involved and this one has 10. For me it freezes instead of CTDs. Usually, what I do is restarting the sim and resuming the download. Suboptimal but it works.

If the starting times were not so long… I seem to be downloading bit by bit more after each crash ^^

EDIT: yep after each package the sim ctd’s. Wonder if anyone else gets in one go.

It helps to rename your community folder temporarily to something else. It’ll speed up your startup of the sim considerably. Then after you’re done, re-rename it to Community.

Hehe, yeah did that. 173MB left. What an ordeal. But I am a certified Husky fan so gotta do it.

EDIT: Taking the focus of the MSFS Client (tabbing away) seems to have helped my issue. For what it is worth it may help you too.

not needed to play from the couch, that’s strictly where this is advertised at.

I really like it… One small caveat, the GPS gets titled sideways on popout. Otherwise great.

Hmm … nothing against the Husky. Lovely little plane.
With the XCub and the Savage Cub I nevertheless had the impression we had this kind of aircraft covered pretty well already. Especially the XCub is so close in specs and looks that I really wished MS/Asobo would have selected something using a little more imagination. Especially considering the C-version also doesn’t have a steam gauge cockpit.
So it’s a pass for me.

exactly what @Archer374 wrote.

additionally, all instruments are copy paste from other various aicraft already available.
seems a very low effort.

get the free savage carbon realism mod, a much more raw experience than this.

And this is free of course? An apology for the SU5 and hotfix mess?
Cannot check myself.
