[REVIEW] Jonx EA-7 Edgely Optica
I installed the Jonx EA-7 Edgely Optica from FlightSimulator.to a few days ago. It is not a FSX port but a new aircraft made for MSFS. This has to be one of the oddest shaped aircraft ever. But the odd shape is what makes this aircraft special. Also, it uses a pusher turbo fan instead of the usual engine/propeller.
Here are several reasons to try out the Jonx EA-7 Edgely Optica. First, the almost 360° view is incredible, similar to many helicopters. Second, how many aircraft have a dog in the cockpit? Third, the flight characteristics are excellent. This aircraft is easy to fly. Take-offs and landings are a breeze, pun intended. Fourth, skis are easily added when flying in snow country. Fifth, avionics are modern including an autopilot for those long duration flights. Sixth, the developer support is excellent! I think there is some mind reading going on because the items I mentioned in a comment were delivered the next day in an update to v 1.1. Version 1.2 is now available fixing several minor but important items. Seventh, IRL the Edgely Optica has an interesting (strange?) development history. Only 22 aircraft have been built.
I’m don’t know why the Aerosoar team chose this aircraft to be built for MSFS but I am glad they did. I recommend to anyone flying GA aircraft to add this aircraft to their MSFS hanger. 5+ stars! On your next flight don’t forget to bring the dog treats for man’s best friend!
