    Review: Alabeo - Cessna 177 Cardinal

    The C177 Cardinal is in some ways a rather unique member of Cessna's GA family. Its lack of wing struts give it a sleeker look that appeals to many. The X-Plane 11 version from Alabeo certainly appealed to reviewer Stuart McGregor. He found it to be a high-quality offering, with a great level of detail and well worth considering as a step up from more basic aircraft.
