Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke tries to master the FlyJSim Dash 8 Q400 Next Generation model., According to Andy “This is a high quality model, when considered from any aspect, and is accompanied by detailed and helpful documentation that compliments the effort put in to producing the aircraft itself. The very high level of detail, both externally and internally, immerses the user in every aspect of using the Q400.
