Does anyone know whats happened to the Cessna 207? Its looked close to release for months on the Incomings page, but sadly no further news. I hope nothing too major is holding up the release.

I've noticed that Alabeo have been steadily increasing their prices lately. At least is the C207 worth $30?

Yes, they increased the price on this C207, just $1 after the Cardinal, I got it and it worth the 30 price tag...is a C207, of course, bigger than the Cardinal, and the most bigger of their fleet, could be the reason of the price increase...btw I compared it to the C206 or C182, and I find it even cheaper...not the common price of 34-37 or even 39.95 price tag of the Carenado's fleet (sometimes because of glass) (Carenado and Alabeo are the same company), so I have a Carenado/Alabeo C207 for a very decent price.

 

IMO is a right price, it worths it, and it's logic the price increase, the aircraft is bigger...

On the other hand, for some reason, I would give a try for a 19.95$ product but for 29.95 I want to know that it is good and to be sure I would use it regularly. I know, it´s on $10 but that´s the way it goes.

Yes, I fully agree! $20-$23 was the right amount of money for these kind of addons: Beautiful models with the functionality of a FSX default plane, average sounds and FDs and no manual. $30 is just too much for what is offered.

How does it compare to the Carenado big Piper Saratoga? I wanted to like that, but never really got there. Not sure about $30 either...

Do I read you right? There is no manual for their planes? Any of them? I don't want to go there again. I am struggling with the Carenado Beech 1900. There at least ought to be a chart labeling what everything is on the panel. All I got was a check list - turn this on, turn this off, set this, etc. It would be nice to know just where on the panel the pressurization controls are for example.

Yes, that's right! The Staggerwing and the Waco came completely without any kind of documentation - only a one page datasheet with very limited informations. With the newer ones like the Tomahawk or the C195 you get a least a few checklists. But nothing that I would describe as a manual.

 

But actually you do not really need a manual for their addons. If you can fly the FSX default aircrafts, you can fly every Alabeo aircraft without any problems. And that's fine for $20. But not enough for a $30 addon.

I hope they are reading this since I think that you guys have a point when it comes to the price range.

 

Can't blame them for bad FDEs (Bernt Stolle involved, mostly, which is excellent) or their bias on old-ish planes with steam gauges but the fascination also arose from a sweet spot on the pricing, making you forget about this or that issue or some very default systems.

Is not a badly done aircraft, I just see it like I continued my Cessna fleet after the CT206H...I got a C207 for 30, instead of 34.95 of the CT206H, was not that bad, but I have just purchased from Alabeo the 177 and 207, not the rest of their fleet ;)

 

It does have procedures manual, performance charts and RXP integration...

 

I see Alabeo as a cheaper aircraft seller from Carenado, under the name "Alabeo", because that's what it is...

Alabeo are a different development team though, just working under Carenado's management. My guess is that Carenado just tell them what aircraft to make, how to make it, and allow them to reuse their assets.

i´ve hear opinions from pilots who fly 206 and 207 and the plane flyes like a real one... the caracteristics when the weight its bad configured real.. etc... so far.. the best on the alabeo fleet, and maybe better that the sister carenado t206h .....

I agree with that!, the 207 it's even impressively FPS friendly than C206 analog and G1000 was...I really like the 207, it isn't the turbo version, but it's nice to fly, same with the 177, very well done (IMO)

I third that gentlemen.  It seems that Alabeo has really stepped up their flight dynamics lately with their aircraft.  The 207 is a steady as a rock.  Quite a joy to fly

I bought it from PC Aviator and I cannot open the download. It says the download ended early - says it is corrupted. :(  They closed 10 minutes before I called. Just my luck! LOL!  I even tried to download it on another machine. No joy. I'm getting closer to owning it! LOL! One day!!

I seem to be really enjoying the C207, especially the fact that Alabeo included Reality XP integration! I hope that payware aircraft developers continue to feature Reality XP integration into their planes for FSX! This aircraft does not have a comms 2 radio though, which is not a big problem for me (at least that's what I've noticed).
