    Default Torn Between one of TWO Aircraft for MSFS. Your thoughts on both before I buy please

    So, I'm on the fence for one of TWO aircraft, because I'm eyeing Van Nuys from Orbx which is dropping soon. What would you all get and why? Please try to sell it to me like you would be if you were a salesman for the aircraft company.

    1st Choice: Blackbox Simulations Britten Norman Islander

    2nd Choice: Blackbox Simulations Cessna Cessna L-19
    "Bird Dog"

    Again, I want to know the good, the bad, the uglies on All of the above. I want to make sure I make the right choice. I know the Islander has the GNS 530 which I have from Realsim Gear so I can use that with that aircraft, so that is already a plus to me, but I'm torn up on some of my Island sceneries on the Bird Dog. Thanks for your feedback; I'll let you all know when I decide the winner with a screenshot suite.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi John, I bought the Bird Dog a couple of weeks back, although I haven’t spent much time in it yet.. or should I say “them” - you get three versions, including an amphibious one.
    I did watch some YouTube reviews at the time, on the Islander & one in particular didn’t really sell it to me (& I keep buying aircraft for the sake of it LOL) I think the reviewer said the textures were a little basic and for the price he would have expected more.

    I have the Islander and I'm very happy with it. I have 8 or 9 good quality liveries from, including one which I requested, and there are now 60 liveries to choose from.
