I'd love to know how well it supports hardware...if it supports Linda, knobs, switches, etc.

So here are my impressions following an inaugural flight:

  • Exterior: the Flight1 team did a great job capturing the beauty of the King Air
  • VC: Looks great with lots of systems and the G1000 is light years ahead of the default implementation - the SafeTaxi feature is very, very cool.
  • Model: I've never flown a King Air so I can't comment on realism, but having flown light twins the airplane feels as I would expect
  • Performance: I have a 3-year old machine running a GTX480 and am experiencing smooth, mid-20 frame-rates - about the same thing I see with the PMDG 737.

Overall, great job by the Flight1 team. You can tell they put a lot of love into this airplane. OK, off for another flight...

Prepar3D??

 

Flight1 have a strict anti-Prepar3D policy. They only support the legacy simulator FSX.

 

In fact, they have started to build in checks in their products and installers to ensure that you don't install and use them in Prepar3D. For example, they might disable important gauges or the entire VC if they detect you're running the product in P3D. It might work with the Migration Tool in "Legacy mode", but I wouldn't chance it. Plenty of other great turbo-props from other developers that work fine in P3D.

A pass for me on this one then...
