Think I might have to pass on this.  The reality is I know I just will not fly this aircraft very much even though it looks absolutely awesome.  Not sure its worth $50 for me personally given I will probably only give it 4 or 5 hours although I am sure the low and slow crowd will absolutely love it.

Short cross country flight, a couple of stalls and a touch and go later: Amazing. Great "feel", great atmosphere. Accusim strikes again!

What is interesting to me is there is no question I would not buy this product - I buy it without any in depth review being posted. I buy it solely on the reputation of A2A. I think when you get to this level of automatically purchasing something you could argue that it is an enviable marketing position to be in. There is one small caveat for me however...

 

The strategy of withholding the pricing until the day of release needs to  be re-examined. A company such as A2A, which strikes me as one of integrity, would be better served by just being open about the pricing when the release is forthcoming.I believe the current strategy contributes to the hype and is nothing more than market manipulation - completely unnecessary for a company with such an excellent reputation.

Got a couple of bugs so far (on my machine anyway) - missing many (most all), sounds on a replay in FSX, and the  right hand GPS selector knob refuses to work for scrolling through airports etc., until I use the GPS in the dash first, then its ok unless I close the @d pop-up, then I have to go back to the dash mounted one again before using the 2D...

 

..and there sure is a ton of "runway rolling noise and bumps" when taxing, more than I ever got with Accu-Feel running on other aircraft - no big deal, just odd...

Worth going to the A2A Simulations forum to get info on RXP integration, to be sure. Sounds like there might be an issue for some people with some configurations, which no doubt will get sorted soon.

That's not a bug in the airplane, many, if not all, aircraft's sounds are incompatible with instant replay, and many sceneries are too. And there is nothing they can do about it.

 

A better option would be to use fsrecorder.

Man oh man she's a beauty!

 

Did the standard walk around then started her up in front of the hangar at KMYF. She handled the taxiway like the real thing does. During the run-up I caught myself looking for the carb heat. Sounds during the run-up put me right there. The sounds are great, very realistic. Once that was complete we lined up and shot down 28L.

 

A couple of times around the patten proves to me that A2A has created an amazing thing here. So far I have not seen anything negative to report on and plenty I like. 

 

The map and manual (with checklists) are right there in the door pockets and appear in non obstructive pop-up windows. I really like these features.

 

I Had high expectations and they have been exceeded only a few minutes in. Kudos to A2A on another fantastic product.

Hmm, I have never had any sound problems going back and running the replay in FSX before on any aircraft (and I have quite  a few), but I posted it in the A2A tech support forum, so we'll see what they think :biggrin:

Funny...I started her up at KSEE and flew over to KMYF for my first landing. :blink:
