The new 182T

Recommended Posts

I wasn't all that excited about the 182, but I has sure whetted my appetite after those screenies!

Yeah it looks great.. This is an instant buy for me. The 182 is my all time favorite high wing Cessna since it was a mainstay of the FS series for ages. I'd prefer a new HD 182RG but I'll more than be happy with a glass cockpit fixed gear version. :)

With Flight 1 already selling a T182 with G1000, I'm not sure where this fits in?

I was wondering too, Glenn. Running the F1 here and loving the G1000 detail plus the swift service, I may not be the one buying the same plane again from Carenado. However, if the Carenado comes in cheaper, maybe with better fps and with a lighter G1000 (which some folks may prefer), there might be a market.

 

But, frankly, I'd love to see something else from Carendo instead of building the same plane as F1 a few months back.

I purchased the F1 version when it came out but I wasn't into the G1000. Combine that with the fact that the fps hit was rather large, I asked for a refund.

 

Great aircraft though if you are into the G1000 glass.

 

I' am very happy with the recently released Cardinal however.....

 

I am also guessing that based on recent pricing, this will be around 30-40 bucks. With the F1 version at 49 bucks with a pretty awesome G1000, I think Carenado may have a hard time with this one.

Agreed. The Cirrus looks more interesting to me. I would wish for some Lancair turbine though.

Think he'll be ok.. He'll attract the Prepar3D crowd since Flight1 is threatening to purposely cripple their products if they are installed in Prepar3D and those who never bought the Flight1 model because it was $50 (raises hand). Then those who are just loyal to Carenado.

Agreed on the P3D thing....I'm not sure why F1 are being so awkward with this, although I have my suspicions since they are heavily into the pro / commercial market with ESP/P3D. Having crossover licenses from consumer priced products is clearly not in their best interests. I am a huge Flight 1 fan, but I think this one may come back and bite them in the &@($*.

 

Back to the 182.....the G1000 and flight model on the f1 version is superb. Do you think Carenado can compete with it? I dont think so personally. As for price, recent Carenado offerings are at the close to $40 mark anyway. I think I would spend the extra $10 if I had to choose between them, especially with the F1 refund option.

 

O course we haven't seen the Carenado G1000 yet...it might be better than the F1 version. I will reserve judgement until then.

New pics up on Carenado's facebook page showing the G1000 (PFD anyhow). Looks nice but I wonder how functional it will be....

Visually stunning!! I have the F1 Skylane, and probably won't get another one, but the model and textures from Carenado are really cool, as allways.

After checking out the pictures of the 182T on Carenado's website, I am once again impressed at their airframe modeling. I don't know good the G1000 will be but there will probably be some tweaking done to it after it's released.

I have one question. How hard would it be for Carenado to come up with some different faces for their pilots? I think it would be a plus for them to have different faces in the cockpits of different aircraft instead of the same two guys always flying their planes. It's a simple texture change.

Give me a sim pilot in his 50's, add a receding hairline, throw in some eyeglasses and a mustache and you have me sold!

I'm getting this one for sure!

For me it is very hard to resist the superior texturing of all Carenado planes!

Now that Bernt Stolle takes care of flight modelling I really see no alternative at the moment apart from the Cessna 172 from RealAir which I am also looking forward to.

I'd prefer a new HD 182RG

Including an RG configurationin the package! That would be a must for me. Otherwise I'll stick with the 210 with dual GPS.

I second you on this one!

Hopefully Carenado will also consider the RG...

It looks outstanding. I hope that 'built from scratch' means that there will be something more to it than default. I wish that carenado would integrate the Navigraph AIRAC update compatibility to the newer models as flight1 does. They make planes that are far superior in overall looks and modelling, and I would HAPPILY pay $50 for that kind of feature set in a Carenado aircraft. Especially the G1000's, as WAAS functionality is a must. I won't buy the F1 offerings as they resemble FS9 aircraft....despite having the functionality I desire. I don't expect it from Carenado, but It would be nice!

Matt, the F1 C182 with the G1000 doesn't 'resemble FS9 aircraft' in my eyes. So if you are up for good G1000 details, it might still be your choice and also allows for 30 day money back guarantee.

 

I don't know how Carenado plans for their G1000, but we may see some tweaked default feature set whereas the F1 rendition adds a lot more, perhaps eating a few fps though. No doubts on the modelling of Carenado, but it's not like the F1 lacks anything on that part.

 

From reading, I think that quite some people appreciate less G1000 details though. A smaller fps impact and a lower price will surely help. So both planes will have their fans if it turns out that way. :smile:

The F1 version has an amazing G1000, but I'm not too keen on the texturing. I can see the "looks like an FS9 plane" argument, although I think it isn't quite that bad. I tend to be very picky about a plane's VC, and I don't find the F1's textures to be "distractingly bad" even though the A-pillars look like my daughter might have drawn them.

 

I'd take "great avionics and great FDE with a so-so VC" above "a flying texture" any day. I don't pretend to know how good the Carenado will be, but the F1 is spectacular in it's own right.

I guess if Bernt is on the Carenado 182 team, the FDE will be very good.

True, he does some excellent work.

How do you like the windows on the F1 by the way? That's an optical detail coming to my mind which is well done I think. You know, that 'not 100% clean' look. The landing lights also add something more realistic than the default FSX ones.

 

I'm also a fan of the prop animation.
