Now available at Wilcopub:http://www.wilcopub.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=prod_avantiI am about to put my little copilot to bed so I have not had a chance to purchase yet. I will post some thoughts a little later tonight when I have the chance to pick it up and then fly a bit. :(

I've gotta hear some reviews on this. The FSX version was pretty bad.

Then what do you expect? :(
In defense of Wilco/Aeroplane Heaven, the FS9 Avanti II has had a few months longer development time. It also has the benefit of bugs being reported for the FSX version first. Whether or not this has helped, I am not sure yet (just put my son to bed and have not purchased as of yet). I actually like the FSX version quite a bit. It does have issues, but IMO, some folks blow things a little out of proportion.Dillon, I thought you didn't use FSX. :(

I don't but I read forums as I was interested in this plane. If Aeroplane Heaven did this plane it should be outstanding, I may have to take a look. :Thinking:I don't see any mention of it on their website.

Yeah, they seemed to be creating it behind closed doors, or possibly in conjuction with Wilco. I am not to sure. Bazzar over at SOH is one of the developers (or Project Manager?).After I pick it up, I will let you know what I think.

Ok, so I purchased the Avanti II and my initial tests (I start with the model) show that some of the issues from V1 of the FSX version are still present. The textures seem very bright (I am not using the ENB Series mod) and there seems to be some texture files or something on the inside of the passenger windows. There are also a few model errors here and there that I reported with the FSX version which were fixed in SP1 and SP2. I did not seem to have the sound issues that were preset in the FSX version or the POS INIT issue I had with v1 of the FSX offering. The VC also looks quite a bit more "toned down" texture/modeling wise as compared to the FSX version. There also appears to be less animations for the FS2004 version (only 1 pilot, no moveable Sun visors, etc..).I have not done any flight tests yet, as these are my initial finding regarding the model. I will do some flight tests tomorrow.

Let me know what you find. iFly has taken up my time as of late but I'm still interested in hearing all you have to say about this release as I have the FSD version.

I bought this plane two days ago and I'm disappointed: My framerate dropped from usually 30fps over KSEA to 12fps. So I'm not keen on flying this plane furthermore...

I have the same bad experience: very hard hit on FPS in the VC, useless in practice. And the look is not that amazing. Dunno if the FSX version has gone more mature, but I'm very disappointed. Last time Wilco gets money from me. On the other hand, very pleased with E-jets v2 from Feelthere... Waiting for the PIC 737 update.
