    I didn't know that a C172 was ever produced with retractable gear so looked it up:

    Cessna introduced a retractable landing gear version of the 172 in 1980 and named it the Cutlass 172RG. The Cutlass featured a variable-pitch, constant-speed propeller and a more powerful Lycoming O-360-F1A6 engine of 180 horsepower (130 kW).

    You learn something new every day. I've never seen one though either in the RW or in a flight simulator so far as I can remember. Sounds like it would be a nice addition though.

    I'm wondering if that's the same one from Alabeo:

    I'm curious: what do you mean exactly by "top wing"?
    Don't all Cessna 172 feature a top wing?

    That was a typo. Sorry. Yes, I think all Cessna 172's have high wings.

    What I'm looking for ideally is a high winged GA single prop (twin prop would be nice) with options for reality-xp/glass type and steam gauges, and with ski, bush, and amphibious versions for slow and low sight-seeing trips. I know that's asking a lot but... it's a game. A one-in-all plane doesn't have to exist in real life. :-)
