Great, so everyone can see it but me? I even cleared everything -- temp files, cookies, etc. Gah! Oh well, I'll wait till Fight1 has it up. They will, eventually.

I just went to dreamfleet2000.com Very nice airplane. Guages are very smooth in both the 2d and vc. Time to hit the hay, but I will be flying a bunch tomorrow since I have the day off. I love fire dept schedules. hee heeI wish you luck Chris. It should be there. My guess is they started sales at 2400 EST. Great job fellas. I have been waiting and checking and waiting and checking for this one since you first announced it. :)Scott

Yes!!! And flying her now on my FS machine!!!! WOW!!!!!Now I wonder how many of my paychecks I could use to bribe Dreamfleet to consider the Piper PA-24 Comanche (retractable gear) from my flight school :-)

No bribes necessary, just find me one near CDW, coerce our staff to do it, and find us enough hours in the day to do it.Happy flying with the Archer! :)I'll have to be honest, while I like the Comanche, I finally want to do an aircraft that I own / fly. So now it's my turn after all these years, and my Dakota is next!She's in for a performance engine overhaul right now, and I just hope the dyno test turns up something in excess of 235 HP. Would be neat to see what a 250 HP Dakota is like!Wasn't I supposed to be getting some sleep? ;)Regards,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...R_FORUM_LOU.jpg

Sleep? I have heard of this. OH! Yeah -- THAT's what I was going to get before installing this. Will do so in a few hours :-P LOL. Doing a cross country from KPUB to KDMOV244 LAA V10 ADEER V10 EMP V234 AUGIE -- 7000 feet.

Is it me or does the panel look a bit plain?Compared to the Version 2 (black panel with a worn look, which is what I saw when I flew a real one) the version 3 looks a plain panel with the gauges on, or is that what its supposed to look like?Graham

I don't know anything about these planes though.Either way, I like the new one better. Less clutter, nicer panel color, better 2D appearance, ect...ETA: Yup, Piper has an Archer III, so it's not just DF's naming, and the new Archer looks like that. A pic of the panel can be found here: http://www.newpiper.com/aircraft/archer~iii/gallery.asp

Notice how, wehen you take the wheel pants off for operation on grass strips the performance changes? How cool is that!? And finally a proper landing panel view where the bitmap and gauges are both lower down, AND closer to the eye - mimicing a pilot sitting up in the seat to get a better view over the nose!And I like the reading lights in the back!Allcott

Looks awesome to me. With that pic from the Piper site I'd say they nailed it right on :-)

Lou photographed Chuck Robert's Archer (that's the red and white one) for this so the panel looks just like his.

My FS9 budget is way over spent, as it was when I bought the A36 Bonanza but I absolutely have to have this, right now.Sure glad I bought that case of Kraft dinner at Costco last week.

This plane is just like the one I fly.My flight school has 2 Archer 3's but they have duel Garmin 430's in them.I have about 100 hours in them now and they are great flying airplanes.I am about to start my instrument cross counties and I will do them on FS9 first with the Archer then for real.

An great bit of work it is. Flies wonderfully and the performance of the VC is outstanding. Gauges are very, very smooth. I highly recommend!

Great plane! I'm not usually inclined to purchase slower flying GA's, but this plane looked too good to pass up. I figured for the price, it was a great deal. Well, I just completed a 1.4 hour flight and am happy to say it flies like a dream.

Manny,I think you ought to stick with renting a real Archer III if you find the Dreamfleet one unacceptable. I happen to think your opinion is not shared with the majority of simmers.BTW thanks for posting a close up of the VC, I'm not allowed to since I was beta on the project.
