Actually, Lars, it is not "Lou's" aircraft but "Julie's" aircraft that we modeled, with our mutual friend, Lee Hetherington at the virtual controls. Some of you might know Lee from the TCAS II gauge he programmed for 767PIC and others."My" aircraft will be following, and that will be my Piper Dakota. ;-)Ah! Here's a group photo of us By Nels Anderson's Archer (I think some of you may have a virtual version of it), when we met up with Julie last month. Just so you know, Gloria is my mother, and Celia is my girlfriend!http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/Previews/A36...IT/DSC_5179.jpgAll right, back into the hangar for me. I have to put some virtual polish on the A36 before we push it out the door tomorrow! :-)Regards,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...R_FORUM_LOU.jpg

I'm still on Win 2000, so I don't think I'll get it very soon. I understand it'll be for XP only, correct?Are you perhaps wondering why I don't move to XP? Well, my system has been stable for a long time, now - many addons, etc, - I'm pretty satisfied with it. Somewhat afraid to start again from scratchMaybe next year - FS2006 ?????????????????Happy landings!

>>Maybe next year - FS2006 ?????????????????>>Happy landings!Not to put a downer on FS, but I hope it really Is Next year, as I am so happy with my FS Setup..But You should move to XP ASAP, otherwise I fear youll be left out on the wing :)You can back up your settings, put a new OS on the re-install FS and overwrite with your FS Backup... Ok its not that easy, but Im sure its possible..Jason

i most probably will be getting it, but the final desision will be made once i know the price, my main worry is the price will be raised because of the inclusion of the extra avionics, i hope not, because i allready have all them and having to pay extra for their inclusion in the A36 may push it out of my price range.

Straight from the Dreamfleet A36 preview page. I'm sure no one will be able to find an excuse to not purchase this fine bird... :-)====================================================================http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/Previews/A36...w_features.htmlPriceHow much will all of this cost? Special Introductory Price* >>> To be announced at time of release <<< *We are pricing the A36 at this price to reward our loyal customers, who over the years have added many DreamFleet aircraft to their hangar, and also to entice those who have never owned a DreamFleet Aircraft to adding the A36 to their fleet! This introductory price is subject to increase without notice.

Hi JeanLuc,Are they including the Cool Reality XP Stuff again, and claiming some silly value even though they will only work with that aircraft?I thought that was pretty misleading the last time they did that, IMHO.Never Mind, I went to the link you provided, and sure enough they are claiming some obscure $70.00 value with stuff that only works in that plane. If that is correct, I can spend $70.00 and have it work in hundreds instead. Now that would be a $70.00 Value, IMHO. :-)**The reality XP Stuff will only work on that aircraft folks, just so you know. I think it's cool they include that, but poeple should be aware that it only works in One Aircraft**Also to Note, those that Purchase this.**Don't bother, IMHO, unless you have Windows XP, as they are claiming on the bottom right of that link that it was designed:"Designed for Windows XP Only".So if you don't have Windows XP, and say you have WinMe, WinNT, Windows2000, or Win98 still, save your money, IMHO.Since if you have any questions, you are most likely going to get grief because you didn't see that emblazoned on their preview page. Plus the risk that stuff is likely to NOT function at all.(people here were given some grief with another recent payware release that said something similar to that phrase.)"Caveat Emptor"Regards,Joe(who is very good at practicing delayed gratification and not purchasing anything on release day or week or month) ;-)****************Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

Well, I thought with all the pre-hype about price, it would be like $12.95 USD,, not $24.95.Considering other payware developers of GA Aircraft charged the exact same amount on their last release of a GA Plane.So how at that price is this a reward for prior customers?I'm a prior customer, and paid less than that for my last purchase from them.Sounds like a lot of hype, and little reward, IMHO.

I think that introductory price has been up on the Flight1 website since the beginning of the week. but it looks like it may increase sometime in the future ;(

Well,Their other GA releases were $22.95 and $19.95 according to their website, so I guess our reward is a price increase. :-lol :-lolhttp://www.dreamfleet2000.com/products.htmToo funny... if it stays at $24.95. Wow, talk about a Marketing Coup.... :-lolAnd if they lower it from $24.95 Tomorrow, then that opens up a whole different can of worms, IMHO, by showing $24.95 as their introductory price today, IMHO. I guess we'll see.****************Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

With roughly 25% of the number of the posts at the time of this writing, it is not a gripe anymore! it looks like a campaign!I guess everyone is free to purchase, or not, any product, and for roughly 25% of this thread content at the time I write this, Sonar5 said loud and clear that he feels not like being interested in purchasing this addon! that was the question of the thread, I guess you 25% answered the thread alone!

UweR,And you can accept my opinions as well, since they are mine. :-)I'm saying their other GA Aircraft are selling for less, so I guess those products no one should ever purchase again because this release does what?As to what aircraft plays in the same league, that like my opinions are subjective.I respect that you are entitled to yours, and what I am stating here are facts, not conjecture.Two valid Points:1) If it is $24.95 as a reward, it is their most expensive GA release to date, and represents a price increase compared to every one of their other GA AIrcraft that work in FS9.2) If the price is correct on the Flight1 website that is. I mean, they wouldn't put up an incorrect price and leave it up there until just prior to release would they? I don't think they would, so I will take them at their current word on that point.You say it will be worth every cent, have you Bought it yet, or are you guessing?Are you a Beta tester who may be receiving a copy for free?Do you have any conflicts of interest that maybe should be disclosed?You are not required to disclose that of course, but it sounds like you have it already, and I'm interested to know.Take Care,Joe****************Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

Thanks for computing the statistics, I appreciate it. :-lolAnd I apologize for pointing out inconsistencies that I feel consumers should be aware of prior to their purchase. And as long as what I am stating is true, I will opine as such.Thanks for your opinion though. :-)Regards,Joe

>1) If it is $24.95 as a reward, it is their most expensive GA>release to dateNope. Flight1's Meridian was/is more expensive. I believe on its release day the price of the Meridian was approaching $40.>>Are you a Beta tester who may be receiving a copy for free?I believe Uwe is a beta tester but despite your insinuation there is no conflict of interest here. Beta testers are not paid and do not get any royalties from the sale of the product.

Hi Michael,This is a Dreamfleet aircraft. I should have been more specific in my comparison and I apologize for not being more clear. My price references about it being a Price Increase apply to Dreamfleet products as I did list the link to the Dreemfleet product page above.Here is the link to Dreamfleets product page:http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/products.htmDid Dreamfleet make the Meridian?Also, I am not insinuating anything. If I was, I would state it.But I also believe things should be disclosed in the interest of protecting the consumers. That is just my opinion, and others may disagree, but that is simply how I feel about it.

Your feelings are great, and you certainly voice them! thank you for entertaining this thread!! the more you write in it, the more it bumps up, and the more people will know that Dreamfleet is about to release a Bonanza A36, with every bell and whistles no other add-on is able to offer to date on the market, for an extraordinary price of $24.95!Thank you for helping promoting the A36 in entertaining this thread at the top of the forum! we hear your opinion!!

Many of us already own all of the extra bells and whistles separate from the A36. So for us it will come down to if the aircraft is worth it without that stuff. I have quite a bit of time in an A36 so I am certainly considering it, but its not a must have. The final price will definitely effect my purchase decision as I have more aircraft than I know what to do with at this point. I am sure plenty of people will buy it no matter what the price.

My original thoughts when I saw this thread was, "Another rumor" but after seeing your post I have credit card in hand. Hope you have a good fast server ready 'cause I've been waiting for this one. I've loved the A36 since I had a plastic model of one as a kid.A Piper Dakota sounds like another winner. Guess I'll go back into the waiting mode once again (after flying the wings off the A36).About the Piper Archer just flew it last night. Another one of my favorites.Thanks for all the great work.

At $24.95, this is a good price! I'll buy it! I've never owned a Dreamfleet A/C before, but isn't their 727 more expensive, or at least the same price? To get the included weather radar for 'free', I think for someone who doesn't own a Dreamfleet A/C, this would be great way to get into their titles. I don't own any Reality XP stuff, so for me, $24.95 for a payware product that comes with the weather radar is a good deal. I payed $16 for an Alphasim A/C, and I paid $24 for my three FSD International A/C. So for me, $24.95 is an excellent reason to get it from Dreamfleet. I was actually expecting $34.95 or thereabouts. PMDG charges $39 for their NG737, and that A/C is considered the ultimate benchmark for complexity and simulation of procedures. I think $24.95 is an excellent price for a top-of-the-line payware A/C that comes with some special, name-branded bonus gauges like the weather radar. I almost bought the 727 just because it came with the weather radar. For me, I'm not a hardcore payway purchaser. I buy maybe 1 per year. However, during the holiday season, FSD-International ran a promotion allowing you to literally buy one A/C and get another one FREE! I already owned the Cheyenne, so I bought the Navajo and got the Aerostar FREE! I bought that Navajo precisely because of that sale.I think that "sales" in the payware flight sim community are RARE! I will take advantage of them when given the chance since, again, I don't buy many payware A/C. If they (Dreamfleet) gave away the 727 for 1/2 price when buying the Bonanza, I would pay for that too! $40 for two well-modelled A/C is a great deal!Overall, I believe that $25 is a good price for a good-quality, well-modelled A/C that comes with a few patches afterwards to make it perfect.
