Price difference Carenado C172 and C182...?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about getting the Carenado 172 or 182 to replace the default C172, but I wonder why there is a price difference between the two. The 172 costs $ 26,95 and the 182 costs $ 19,95. Does the 172 offer so much more...?EDIT:And btw what is the main difference between the C182 Skylane and the C182Q...?

The 182RG has retractable gear, the Q has fixed gear (lower insurance premiums :( ) .

Another option is to upgrade the avionics in the 172, if the cockpit experience is what you are after.The Reality XP Flightline T gauge set can be had for $29.95.

Ah, well, in that case I think I'll get the 182RG: having to take care of the gear gives me something extra to do. :( And in the 182RG I have to take care of the prop too, something you won't have to do in the C172. And I don't mind having a (simple) AP, so... And another thing: I can use HD texture from Orbx for the 182RG, which is another nice thing (specially since it is black, which could have been a reason for me to get the 182Q, but not anymore!).Upgrading the C172 with new gauges costs more and the difference isn't big enough for me... But thanks for the tip! :(
