Surprised there's not more response to this (on these forums)....

 

Fast GA - Check!

Well Detailed - Check!

RNAV (GPS) Capable - Check!

 

What's not to love?

I would think there might be a larger response elsewhere than here. Avsim's base is largely FSX'ers...and this is not a plane that would excite FSX'ers much nor entice them to come to the dark side since the best version is already available to them :-)

 

2 other things (although it does look like a really cute plane)...it's a FG...and its a GA with glass. A HP plane like that screams to be a retractable...and for personal reasons it seems many forum simmers tend to shy away from glass in GA types.

 

X-plane 3rd party devs could help themselves more by providing new planes that we CAN'T get in FSX (yet wish we had).

 

But heck, if Flight1 would wrap it up I'd give it a shot for sure. Hey wait...is this going to be freeware?? If so then wild horses couldn't keep me away!

 

Thanks for the heads-up on this

Yeah I was hoping it would be retract too... honestly I'm surprised at the speed difference on the lancair site....  it's quite a bit slower with FG...  about a mile per minute slower, climb rate is 1000fpm less than the RG version.....  hp is about 100 less too....

 

But still a 3 mi per min plane sounds like a good thing for me!

For XP? If you're using FSX as well definetly pick up the Realair Legacy! The best GA addon out there!

Quite so, although the Duke V2 isn't too shabby......

Did anyone watch the long long beta stream of this aircraft?  It looks really good but there's a serious (possible) omission that I hope is changed before it comes out.

 

There's two physical NAV/COMM radios but they both are the same frequency - ie there is only 1 nav and 1 comm.

 

This is a problem for people who like to fly IFR online like me....  while it's not impossible to fly IFR with a single NAV source it makes flying much more efficient with two NAV radios.  I'm not sure why Aerobask can't make the GNS530 on the top and NAV1/COMM1 and put that Apollo stack on the bottom and make it NAV2/COMM2....  also there really needs to be a RMI for the Dynon that will display NAV2 bearing and distance.

 

Without the above this seriously amazing addon will be crippled imho...

 

What do others think?

That you should post this request at a place where Aerobask can read it ;-)

 

Anyway, I wrote him an email about that.

Although I prefer the Panthera, the Legacy is certainly a very well-done aircraft, with some very good graphics and very agile in flight.

20 bucks? That's a steal! Where do you guys recommend buying from? Or is there only one shop?

 

@Mario - you prefer the Panthera, why?

If in real life I could choose freely between Legacy and Panthera, I'd take the Panthera. The rational reason is because it has great performance (full fuel tanks can get 4 people over 1.000 nm at 200 kts). The emotional reason is that in my opinion this is the most beautiful GA aircraft currently available. Before, I was a fan of the Cirrus SR22 and the Cessna Corvalis, but since I've first seen pictures of the Panthera, I'm in love. ;-)

 

Regarding the X-Plane model: In general, the Legacy and the Panthera are typical Aerobask aircraft, i.e. their graphics is very good, but not photorealistic. (I'm talking about the style, not the quality!) In this regard, the Legacy is better than the Panthera, because it has even better textures. (The Panthera will soon get an update to v2, where also some parts will be improved visually.)

 

In terms of systems (esp. the glass cockpit avionics), Aerobask aircraft are always simplified and mostly use X-Plane default instruments (the v2 version will have the GNS530 put into the MFD). So the Legacy is more "coherent" than the Panthera -- it all fits nicely together, and the real Dynon 100 is not overly complex anyway. In contrast, in the Panthera the avionics look a bit like Dynon/Garmin, but only have a fraction of the real functionality. Some people might not like that.

 

But I do, because it works abolutely fine, and so I still prefer the Panthera -- also due to performance for long travels and sexyness

Mario, on the Aerobask site the Panthera is listed as having rain effects; having access to both aircraft is this also true for the Legacy?

 

Thanks

 

Edit -oh I see the same question's being pondered in the Panthera thread lol

Yes, she has rain, too. (In the "media" section of the Legacy page at aerobask.com is a screenshot showing that.)
