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.

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.

$30 and no RXP430 integration. Shame

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...
