RFC - Aerosoft ATR-72 500...

Recommended Posts

Any users?

 

I had the Flight 1 ATR-72 500, my preferred turboprop commuter for FSX before the Majestic Q-400.

 

Am seriously considering this one, but would like to read about your experiences :-)

Any links? I can't seem to find any information about this.

 

PS. You need to change "do" to "to" in your signature.

If you are looking for a turbo-commuter I'd spend my money on the Saab 340 instead, I was very disappointed with the ATR and parked it for good after 1 flight. None of the two has any sophisticated NAV equipment, on the other hand, the s340 doesn't pretend to have one either as the early s340A's only had basic VOR/NDB equipment unlike the later models which had a FMC. The ATR uses the default GPS instead of a proper FMC and there's no other system simulation of any depth. You jump in and fly (as advertised) and that's about it. Personally, I am not too impressed with the VC either, to put it this way, the s340 has everything the ATR doesn't. Also a higher price but it's worth it (compared to the ATR).

True, that ATR won't be systems deep as the Saab (really great btw), but is a nice easy plane that I like to use for simpler, relaxing and fun flights, it is very easy on the fps. Hey no torque effect for you! Very easy on the handling, also very simple systems. I'm not an expert on ATR but this is a very slow climber.

 

Great textures BTW!
