Whoa - quick.  Nice.

 

I've picked it up - will test her out tonight.

All other things aside, there's absolutely no denying that's one beautiful, lust-worthy airplane!

 

Complete non sequitur I know, but I wonder what it'd be like to fly with that oddly angled yoke.

Herd fly boys call it a "Over Hand Yoke" .

 

I got a broker looking these new Carenado's over, and will wait a couple months for the factory to do the mandatory upgrades.

 

 

As far as the Yokes go... I've always thought they would be uncomfortable... not that ive had my grubby hands on one though.. just my hunch. The "U" Yokes are partly that way so you can rest your elbows on the seat arm rest.  You can "wrist fly" that way. Which to me seems intuitively easier to use.

 

To my eyes, they look like yet another example of why engineers have to give adult supervision to designers.

Its for sure one pretty little Jet.

But i'm not going to buy anymore Frameratekillers...I'm not willing to

spend time on tweaking and tweaking until my frames are stable at 28somewhat... -_-

It just is no fun at all for me anymore.

 

Regards,

Tom

They must sort out p3d2 so these displays run properly on a good gpu. It doesn't make any sense that they're such an fps hog.

No fps hogging going on with mine.

 

In fact I'm very impressed.

Hirdy, how is performance compared to the MJC Dash 8? :)

Tom,

 

The MJC D8 is my best performer compared to the likes of PMDG T7,NGX etc and my PMDG's perform quite well. Somewhere between 25 and 30 with orbx scenery, traffic, weather etc....

 

I have always found the new glass carenado aircraft to perform as well as my PMDG planes. The Phenom performs great.

Interesting looking exterior, but then Carenado are known for the pretty make up on the outside. What I'm interested in is if anything has changed on the inside in terms of system depth and functionality?

 

Can I program an IFR flight plan and make use of SIDs/STARs? Does it support Navigraph/NavDataPro or does it depend on the old FSX database?

Never liked those "bicycle handle bar" yokes. Looks so uncomfortable. About the Carenado Phenom though; I heard it's quite light on the systems modelling?

Nice pictures, Ryan - one beautiful looking bird.

 

The particular paint reminds me of a classic 60's Mustang with the center line racing stripes. Just need a hood scoop to finish it up...    :lol:

 

That is the paint I will probably use when I purchase my copy. I already blew my April FSX/P3D budget, and must restrain myself for 24 more days.

Man, like many other, wonder how she flies ? She is a gorgeous looking bird, and great pics as well.

So then you already know that the kind of systems you mentioned are not in this, or any other, Carenado plane.

 

Carenado; Exceptional graphics, Mid level pricing, steady new releases, Mid Level System depth. No updatable navigation, some flight dynamics by Brent Stolle.

Sorta like Fusion power. 20 years away... and always will be.

I guess I fooled myself into thinking they might tweak their philosophy with jets.
