At least in the sim, your teeth won't feel the vibrations in the Cherokee! Hope you're feeling better Ryan!

 

Best, Jeff

First flight from KDXR to KBDL was really nice, both hand flying and tried out the AP.  Be sure to read the documentation on it's use....it is different than the typical BK AP.  

 

Just like the real Cherokee, the A2A Cherokee very stable and easy to hand fly.  I hand flew the GPS LPV approach into KBDL...easiest airplane I have ever flown an approach in.

 

RXP users be sure to check the RXP FAQ notes on the A2A Cherokee Tech forum.

 

All in all, another A2A masterpeice.

 

Cheers

TJ

 

ps...DX10ers, be sure to run Steves DX10 fixer after installing the Cherokee.

Do not forget to keep the fuel balanced by switching L to R on the fuel selector. Does it have a constant speed prop?

Most FSX addons work in P3DV2.

Most FSX addons work in P3DV2.

They might work, however its not allowed bei the EULA aof A2A. If you want to use the Cherokee for FSX, buy a FSX licences, if you want to use her in P3d, buy a P3D licences and if you plan to use both, buy a combo package. Easy as that

How is the cruising speed? Is it higher then the C172? I personally never bought the A2A C172 because it was too slow for me :) So if this one would do 20-30 Knots more, it would be a nice GA addition to the hangar.

with speed mods ~6000' and full throttle leaned for power it should do around 130KTAS which is about 150MPH  Currently I am cruising at 8500' ~ 2550RPM with speed mods, showing about 124KTAS.

Did they get the toe brake piece worked out?  I still cannot get the toe brakes on my Saitek pedals to work properly, even with the BrakeReleaseThreshold tweak.

I'll wait for their Commanche or bonanza - 130 KTAS - about 3-5 kts faster than the Cessna.

Maybe it's me, but I struggle to understand a decision not to purchase a GA aircraft with this much system depth and all round immersion for the sake of a few knots here or there.  I feel you're really missing out.

 

Not criticising mind....we all sim in our own way !

As a P3D V2 Professional User I will not be buying it at $80.
Now if it was $50 I pick it up in a heart beat.
Just bought the Sib Wings AN-2 for $24 bucks and will enjoy
that instead:-)

 yea thats kinda of a rip off unless it adds a bunch of features. I think $50 is kinda high for a basic GA plane considering I paid $69 for the NGX which is alot more complex then a Cherokee. I think I'll stick with Carenado/Alabeo GA planes.

Thats true - but you know, when I go GA flying, I usually have some kind of a story in my mind that I am playing, like flying the family to holiday etc. And while it might not be a big difference in real aviation if you fly 3 hours in GA or 4 hours, it is for me in the sim. Because after a while, even with things like Active Sky Next, AccuSim, ORBX Scenery etc. pp it gets boring for me after a while to fly GA in FSX, because there is simply something missing, something you simply can not simulate. Therefore I tend to not fly longer than 2 hour GA flights, and if you take that into consideration it makes sense why someone might be interested in the speed of the GA.

 

Last but not least an aircraft which flies faster not only in cruise but also on approach and departure tends to be more challenging, at least for me. So thats another reason for me why I love fast piston-powered GAs, like the Bonanza or of course the Mooney M20.

For a test, I went to 6000' which is optimum alt for Hershey winged Cherokee, power to redline and was getting around 135kits.  Firewalled will exceed redline and get you about 140kts, however this is accusim and it isn't wise to fly at redline all the time :)

 

If speed is needed, the EE Lightning does Mach 2 :lol:

I'm not knocking their modeling but it's just another slow plane I'd be buying. I rarely fly the C172 (mainly BC I'm plagued with the volts and starting issues - probably my install only a few others have it), and the speed.... 2 miles a min plane.

 

But I do highly enjoy their civilian mustang!

 

I wonder if they'll look at F1 GTN750/650 integration?
