Nice pics

 

Usually Bill's planes are priced low for high quality!

The opposite of Carenado's policy :)

Totally unfair and unrealistic comment about Carenado. I am grateful Carenado is producing planes for us and I buy AND fly all of them with pleasure.

Totally unfair and unrealistic comment about Carenado. I am grateful Carenado is producing planes for us and I buy AND fly all of them with pleasure.

Sorry it was an offhand comment, not meant to offend - I like Carenado and I am glad there is a developer catering to the GA side - I don't fly tubes myself and all my aircraft are GA (except for Aerosoft Bronco).

 

 

 

I guess its about personal perceptions and value one places on things - which differ from person to person.

 

 

For example I bought the Real Air Legacy and Duke - at prices far higher than Carenado - yet I was satisfied. I bought the Lionheart Kodiak at a sale ($12 I think) - and I think got way over my money's worth despite its simplicity. I got the DA42 by Iris on a sale too ($10 I think) and again I think I got value for money.

 

 

 

With Carenado, I am not saying bad planes, they are decent good planes - but I didn't get the same feeling like I say got with Aerosoft Bronco or RealAir planes that its worth it. Instead I was asking - why the price? Note its not about the level of price - Bronco - a far more complicated aircraft - is cheaper than simpler Carenados. No manuals, history etc - its like they produced the info from internet searches they found. Compared to what I got from Real Air and Aerosoft besides the plane - Carenado information is paltry. And its not like Real Air or Aerosoft don't produce great looking textures or complicated good looking virtual cockpits with a lot more functionality- far superior in my opinion.

 

Again everyone is different and some people may think Carendao is excellent value for money. I don't quite agree. But I still like them nonetheless.

Back on course about the LHC Fairchild - I'm extremely excited, it looks great!  Bill makes some awesome planes, no doubt.  I need to cough up some cash for the Piper to go along with this...  time to start looking in the sofa cracks for change!  :rolleyes:

Is the LHC pacer the only GA plane at present which can response to cross wind during taking off and landing?
