Me too!!!
Geez, RealAirSimulations is working on one too. Well, I guess I may have to get them both. Aside from Carenados decision to not have seperate switch's for the cabin and instrument lights, I love their planes. Enough cannot be said about RealAirSimulations. All their offerings are a must own.Bob G

I get excited when I see these guys producing the older stuff.

until carenado get with ms 2004 backlight gauge programming, i wont be buying another one of their planes. its a shame because they are usually my favorite. but the lack of a dome light separate from other lights is a deal breaker

You have got to be kidding me... You would not buy this because it does not have a dome light???????Incredible. :(

I wish they would do a Grumman Tiger/Cheetah!They're killing me with the boat anchor radios though. Is there any reason why they won't design their aircraft with newer avionics?

Yeah, I agree. It's really not tough to model different lighting. They make nice looking models you'd think they'd be able to make the night flight a lot better.

Let's hope that they change the night lighting. I've got several of their aircraft and the only drawback is the night lighting.

I think what he meant was in reply of my previous email. It is the fact that Carenado does not have seperate switch's for the dome and instrument lighting. What this means is your dome light remains on even during night flights. Very annoying.Bob

What does "rip another air file" mean exactly. Never heard that term. Does it mean they use one from another plane?Bob

I pulled my post as I fear it would be seen as advertising. I would have removed it completely, but I don't see that option.

Agreed.RE: Radios. Luckily most of the Carenado aircraft can be have their radios swapped quite easily.....but.....as I understand, the new 172 received modeled knobs, rendering that aircraft impossible to retrofit. Thus, I have not purchased the 172.Here is hoping they update the equipment in the twin. Otherwise, I'll just keep flying the wonderful Eaglesoft Twink.

I agree that swappable avionics would be nice. But I love the old stuff. Call me old school, nostalgic, or crazy. I guess if I ever get a chance to fly something with Garmin I will learn to appreciate digital gauges and radios. All of my previous military and civilian flying has been in old aircraft with early generation radios. So I can relate to the old radios modeled in the Carenado products.Keith

It would be nice to have the option at the click of an options button :(

Have to agree here with the night lightening... issue. I own almost all Carenado planes since the birth of FS9 and i am more than satisfied (specially with the true FSX models) - well except the terrible (yes terrible) night visuals. I wouldn't have a problem to spend 5 bucks more on the product for state of the art VC lightening. Fingers crossed...

Yep, I agree. Ok lets all send Carenado an email, and ask them to please code in what is ever necessary to have the dome and instrument lights controlled seperately, and that we will be eternally grateful.Bob

3 of the 172s at my club have an old Cessna radio in them, but all of them have had at least one of their radios upgraded with something new. Everything has at least a KX-155 and/or Garmin 430 installed in it, in addition to some of the old King/Cessna radios. Likewise, when the ADFs have failed in these aircraft, they have just opted to remove them instead of replacing them.While I appreciate them trying to keep the airplanes authentic for the period, it takes away some of the value to me to have nothing but those older radios as the only option.

I actually did hehe. Hey, can someone post a screenshot at night in the VC. Doesn't matter which plane, I just want to see it cause I was interested in the C182RG.
