The GPS looks higly customized but I cannot find a close up pic?

It would be interesting to know if we can insert more than one waypoint. :rolleyes:

certainly well priced but that may also be indicative of the system depth

The GPS (the GNS430!) is still standard. However, the EFIS is customized (and I guess the same goes for the Avidyne map display)

I've been waiting for this plane for a long time and its finally arrived ... and I've been flying this plane all evening.

There are more great planes in X-Plane now than I'm able to devote time to ... that said I am a turboprop addict and this C90 by Dan via Carenado is easily a classic for X-Plane just as the Moo, the SAAB, the AN-2, the JS-32 and the 757 are (my biases except for the 757 which I'll wait until its settled before I buy .. possibly in the new year!).

 

In terms of how it feels, well that's very subjective but in my estimation it is superlative; head and shoulders a better feel / more fluid than the FSX equivalent by Carenado. In FM feel it's vaguely similar to the B200 by Flight1 ... but better :) (I own all three of these KingAir's).

 

Systems are very well modelled IMO, and as Mario mentioned already the GPS limitation is an X-Plane limitation at the moment, but I've been told by a person who knows that the situation will one day be remedied for X-Plane.

 

Overdone torque effect? JComm and LA will be happy with this one I'm sure. I can fly hands off without the fear of becoming a lawndart.

 

Dan Klaue is a genius. If you even slightly like turboprops ... this plane is a must get, beg, borrow or steal .. well DON't steal OK? These guys work hard for little return and because of that everyone should buy two copies ... if you can afford to of course! :wub:

 

Now ... if only Aerosoft would port their Twotter Extended to X-Plane my simming wants would be fully catered for.

And that's good.  As for the GPS, it's still my number one problem with Carenado and XPlane in general.  However I now use PFPX to generate fms flight plans and then just import them! No more craziness with the manual waypoint entry.  Not sure if Carenado plan to also do an Xplane version of the B200, that one would be a must-have for me.

I always thought the stock C90 was pretty good.

I too found the stock C90 pretty good,  however I am definitely going to grab this, Carenado however does imho bring the aircraft "alive" I have been looking forward to this one for a while, as I fly it often with FSE.

I figured they'd port the BE20 first, since there's already a decent BE9L. But it looks like a lot of people are happy with this.

It really looks great!

I have more payware than I can fly for the next two years. Did not touch the new MU-2 version yet so I stay away from another turboprop. However, a B200 release would change that, I think.
