Flysimware C441

Recommended Posts

Not sure where the original post went... but maybe because the dev posted which I think is against the rules.  What is not is for another member to post so that's what I'm doing

 

There's an engine start video which looks awesome, you can really tell the dev has time in this aircraft from the narration:

 

A few things I'm wondering...

 

1) Will it be P3D compatible?

 

2) Will there be RXP (FSX) or GTN (FSX and P3D) integration?

 

"Attention to all GTN customers!

 
If you attempt integrating the GTN into any add-on aircraft and you are having problems with the autopilot, HSI or any other component, then contact the developer of the aircraft and have them get in touch with us.
We will provide them with the SDK and assistance to make it fully compatible with the GTN."

 

3) Will there be an ANR headset option for us online flyers... because wow those garret's are noisy hehe

 

Visually doesn't look as amazing as latest payware but I've got the feeling they went for realism/systems over eye candy... which is ok with me.

The simulation of the systems looks quite impressive! Only the texturing is a little bit of a downer. For me the textures look too pale and shapeless.

I think they need some baked texturing going on. A few smudges and paint inconsistancies.  

 

Modelling looks great, I think it's just the texturing that could improve (especially around the black surround of the main instrument panel).

But as Ryan said, if it means the focus is no realism and the performance is good, then that's ok for me too.

 

The sounds of those Garrets are excellent.

 

Crazy Loud Garretts = realistic! :smile:

I have their 402C and it's again not going to win texturing of the year, but it's very flyable and good fun.

Wonder if you can replace the interior textures with some from the carenado C340 if So I'd buy their 402 in a heart beat.

That´s the system modelling I want! And about the textures: It´s still in developement, so it might be still subject to change..

Great video and talk-thru on procedures. I would have bought it before the video ended if it were available.

My wallet is just itching for the first developer to release something with perfect full 3D GTN integration on a new release.

I expect Realair to fit that bill hehe... Though technically Milviz has already done it in their C310

 

But well see :)

I go to their website every day only to be tortured. It's especially cruel that their banner is V2 Released. 

Talk about anticipoitment. The Duke is my favourite aircraft and in the Turbine form it finally reaches it's true potential. I will probably buy this one too, i'm a sucker for turbine aircraft.

I'm almost more excited about the update including it in the Legacy. ^_^

 

But back to the thread at hand!  It would be superb if this 441 had the option!

Can you share your retrofit file, or can it be purchased at Milviz?

 

Thanks,

Dirk.

 

No offense, but have you actually checked that link? There's a pretty obvious 'buy now' button behind it  :lol:

 

And I agree, this 441 looks great. I'll definitely consider this bird when it is released.

I think he meant if it was a mod - it's not it's actual 3d integration...

 

BTW that's my definition of integration... True 3d knobs and bezels that look nice to the user and function properly.

 

I actually only have the 750 so I'm thinking I need to slap a nav2/comm2 2d radio in there

This one looks nice and I like the system focus too. Great sounds by the way.

MV 310 and Baron GTN integration

 

http://milviz.com/fs/item.php?id=GA_Adds

 

 

Thanks!

 

 

Just worth noting that the Milviz C310R and B55 models that support F1 GTN integration are payware additions ($9.99 each).  Not saying that's a problem (and I bought them), but just pointing it our for those that weren't aware.

So, did anyone actually buy this plane (the C441)? Can you comment on how well it fly's slipping on crosswind approaches and if you need to use rudder to keep the ball centered during turns?

I bought their C402 and was completely underwhelmed with it at the price point (~US$30). I flew it for about 10 hours. The textures were equivalent to high end freeware and, while I've never been in a C402, the flight model, sounds, and systems modelling (what little there was) didn't seem to have a whole lot of personality.

 

Basically it was a Just Flight Flying Club Duchess B76 with less personality and charm and priced 1.5x higher. I would welcome someone convincing me that I'm being too harsh though, so I don't feel like I wasted my cash - so please fire away if you've got something good to say about it.

 

I notice the C441 is yet another peg up the price ladder. Have they raised their game any on this one? Is it intended to be a cut above the C402?

 

I'd love for it to be great as I hear they are doing an MU-2 as well, and like the c442 and c402 that is right in the wheel house of the type of aircraft I like.

 

Edit: Forgot to mention, on the plus side of the C402, F1 GTN 750 integration was flawless from the start.

Just for a minute I thought you were posting about the C441........and I thought you lost your mind :-)

 

That sentence should tell you a lot about the 441

No offence, but if you had put "Flysimware 441" into AVSIM's search field, within seconds you'd have seen that ;-

 

1. Lot's of us bought it.

 

2. It's fantastic, and don't be put off by Nessis's comments, as they're nothing to do with this aircraft.

 

3. Flysimware set up a specific support forum here at AVSIM, where there are lot's of posts about the C441;   

 

access it here :-

I have the 402C.  Is it Carenado eye candy quality?  No.  What it does have is a good flight model and with the 402C, you can fly it as a passenger aircraft or as a cargo aircraft.  Yep, two models for the price of one, what a pleasant surprise.  I don't have the 441, but from what I have read, Flysimware got the flight and systems modeling very well done within the confines of the FSX simulator coding.

Craig - I always search before I post for the last 12 years or so now...but sometimes the posts you find fail to answer the  specific questions you are wondering about...as is the case here with my questions. Yes I see posts where some say it fly's nice and like your own that say "fantastic"...but that is not what I'm asking. If I missed 1 post that actually speaks about how well slips and coordinated turns are modeled, well then that's the reason for me posting about it here...because I did not see it...and still don't.

 

Thank you for pointing out their forum here at Avsim because when I searched here for Flysimware it did not alert me to that forum at all in fact, so thanks for that at least. But still I cannot find an answer to my  specific question.
