Just a quick cruise around KSEA. Very nice indeed but man does it hit your frames. Need to get my control sensitivites set properly as it feels sluggish on the roll. Nice cockpit, nice lighting. Thats all I got for now.

If it behaves like the last Carenado glass plane, the map detail is the key to better fps. Looking forward to the first user reviews. :(

Nice and smooth here.Looks and feels great.-I'm not sure but I have the feeling this one is as good as the duke if not...it's close.

Is this the first Carenado plane with the new landing lights? Looks like from the shots on the page.

Can you tell me how the radio stack is lit at night? Are the labels readable? In previous releases, where I'd integrate my RXP GNS430W the button labels would be barely readable (as in dark). Did they light up the avionics stack better in this release?

And if you write them, explaining the issue? Maybe alter the wording a bit though.

Hi everyone,What really scares me is what N1G writes about the frame hit. He has a 2600K 4.7. I have a mere 3.2GHZ Core2Duo, however I can run the A36. I'm afraid to run the install and get nothing more than a slide show. :( I run the J4100 and the NGX with lower res tweaks and they run very acceptable for me, so maybe I'm reading into this too much perhaps?. Any thoughts about the hit factor from anyone using a less powerful system, or should I just install the darn thing already..... Best, Jeff

Ryan, as you know monitor settings play into this, but I can read them. A little fuzzy, but my seat position is probably a little farther back than many. How do you attach an image. It asks for a URL?Bob

Ryan,I thought this was like the duke but i think i spoke too soon.the pfd and mfd are hardly readable during the day..never mind at night lol. The wing lights , when in tower view, look square !2 picts:

You can use a picture hoster like Imageshack. No reg required or something. Just upload there and copy the link. Should work in most forums and keeps the bandwith low for them.To attach images, use the attach a file dialogue. The one button asking for the link is for external images.

I bought it anyway.. this is a copy of my post at SOH..and a few bugsI feel like a hyprocrit, because I used to get upset when people said stuff like the Mustang didn't hit systems... At the time it was because I was on old hardware and I could see a hit. Well as you can see in my sig I'm on very high end hardware. It's locked at 30 fps at my default airport (rural airport in MN). It feels smooth but initially the plane takes a while to load when you select it via the menu. At least 10 seconds or so. The MFD portion of the G500 is simply an overlay of the default GPS500.. but it looks fine. There is a weather radar. We all know that it's not actually detecting rain but clouds hehe... still it looks cool.So far I've found one annoying bug when using the RXP GNS430W only. Their stock gps's buttons don't work (the one on top of the RXP 430). So I can't change frequencies and I think they programmed it so with the RXP 430 or 530 only you get only one comm and nav frequency. I'd imagine if I bought the 530W they'd both work fine... But there's another 50 bucks hehe.Also I'm trying to lower the brightness of the unit via the MFD AUX page but I cannot access the options... the manual isn't very clear about it. At the moment the G500 PFD gets washed out like other glass addons when the sun is behind you. Also at 1x zoom it's tough to read some of the labels... but this is normal for glass panel addons...washout.jpg

Jeff, just so you know, I am using ORBX, all sliders max. high water, 2048 clouds high setting 70 miles, 100% ga and 50% commercial traffic with u2t. This of course will play into the fps. I can maintain 28-30 with carenados 337. With the JetProp I sit around 20 - 22 average around the KSEA area. Hope this helps.Bob

Is there an option to choose running a single RXP unit (either 530 or 430) or both? Would mean 3 different setups for Carenado to offer in the 3D model section though.How are the first FDE impressions?

And I'm curious as to how it handles and how well the turboprop engine modelling is? Thanks!

Geez, wish I could help you with the turbo part of the question, but I have no expertise on that subject. Someone who has spent some time with the Duke may be able to help.It seems to handle very nicely. It does seem to require a little up nose up aoa on approach and seems a little heavy so you need to watch the power.RegardsBob

Yes - I'm running 430W only but I have an issue (see above post about top GPS buttons not working).FDE feels good... then again I've never flown a heavy piper TP hehe. I have a big issue with the autopilot not intercepting the localizer. It s turns down final a few times until it finds the wind correction angle... moreso than other addons I've got... hmmm

That's really good! Consider yourself lucky! I run about 18 in that situation..

On the fps, does the map detail or the PFD one change anything for you guys?

Not sure I understand your question... do you mean: does changing the G500 settings decrease or increase FPS? Not that I notice...Also the night lighting is looking good on mine... I can read the radios for once! Yes the G500 is a bit dim on the MFD site but just turn on the dome light will help a bitnightlightrs.jpg
