About time they announced their next project. I was hoping they would have brought out one of their g1000 models though.

I'm excited for The Big King Air but we really need a Good T182T SkyLane.

This will be an excellent aircraft to utilize the upcoming 10.30 GPS in the future.

I was hoping for the SR22 but I had a feeling it would be the big King Air ! They are converting all of the steam guage airplanes first. So I am guessing the stationair will be next followed by the b1900d and probably some Alabeo airplanes inbetween.

In FSX they can obviously build on the FSX stock G1000 and add a few features without too much work.

Since there is no comparable stock G1000 in XPX, I have my doubts that we will see a G1000 equipped aircraft in X-Plane anytime soon...

Its going to be a while for sure. But I am sure Danklaue is up to the challenge when the time comes ! Or maybe Austin will give Philipp a G1000 assignment !

 

Here some comments made by Danklaue- "I am hoping to do some exploration on the front of the G1000, because of the role I see it playing in the future of X-Plane.  I had a sense that I'd get stuck on certain things, and if my goal was just to "push a plane out", I would have opted for a simplified version of the G1000.  However, the goal has been to be instrumental in developing an entire G1000 infrastructure, which can easily be adapted to other planes in the future, and herein lie a great deal of the difficulties."

 

"if a new GNS430 is really coming to X-Plane soon, this'll most likely mean that it will support more functionality, which may well also introduce new datarefs to X-Plane that could be tapped into in order to enhance functionality of G1000's and the like.  It'll be interesting to explore that."

Until I upgrade my GPU I won't be buying any addons... I like the C90 but it makes me run on normal and the textures for the XP world look terrible.

It's almost all I fly these days.  You won't be dissappointed when you upgrade!

We've had a G1000 enabled aircraft in X-Plane for years.

 

It's not 100% but it's highly functional including moving terrain map.

I'd be very interested in a comparison too if anyone has thoughts.

They are very similar - C90B a bit more twitchy - 200B feels bigger more stable, smoother - but I have put my C90B in the hanger because I am just loving the B200 so much. I swear that the graphocs are even better for the VC - slightly sharper and better reflections.

 

Engines run diffferently (different torque settings) and landing needs a bit more drive onto the tarmac, and takes a bit longer to get to Vr. Also needs more throttle during taxi - and constant adjustment - but that is true to the videos that I have seen for real ones on You Tube. Also nav & comm radios are all through GPS not radios.............gearing up for the GPS upgrade? It's more fiddly (especially with TrackIR), but I use Airtrack on iPad (as my Saitek multi panel broke) so not a problem. Other than that much the same...............except when you look out of the window with the sun set glinting on the wings and spy those winglets you are just glad you are in the B200.
