Can't wait to see some video, wondering how the scroll wheel support is and hopefully it will spread to other developers.

Well, the FlightFactor A350 has ScrollWheel support anounced, too.So it is very likely that more and more planes will have it.

Tested the mouse scroll wheel feature and is amazing! Why XP10 don't support a simple feature like that? Instead of zoom.

Out of interest, why not buy direct fro Carenado?

 

Carenado only give something like 3 downloads and one time my Download accelerator used multiple connections and took my downloads left to zero. The Org gives unlimited downloads and email notifies when there are updates.

 

If I look at this video one more time, I might change my mind though.

Fair points, I didn't realize Carenado had limited downloads.

I just hate the wait, though and this is the one I was waiting for besides IXEG.

Usually, if you wait until the aircraft is available elsewhere, most of the initial bugs will be fixed :)

Yes stunning indeed like all Carenado, but no more FMS in xplane 10.3?

No FMS because you have the new GNS 530 which support navigraph Airac and it's working like the real one, so no need for FMS

Flaps really do lift this aircraft when landing.  I find it almost impossible to control the approach when using flaps.

 

Is this normal behavior for this aircraft?

I have the same problem!

You have to remember on approach you go from flaps 0 to to flaps 17, which is a fair amount of extension, you'll have the nose pitching up due to the increased lift, a reduction in airspeed due to the additional drag, and the stall speed being lowered, so ideally on approach you want to simultaneously trim nose down while extending flaps 17, that should help control the attitude.

Well, if I look at the documentation it becomes obvious that the B1900D normally only uses flaps up to 17* but not the maximum 34*, while the Carrenado procedures states 34* for a normal landing. According to this page http://www.flywestwind.com/WTC/Pprograms/turboprops.htm this was only done since the MSFS totally ignores the drag of the propeller, so that it lands unrealistically.

 

In videos from real flights I only saw very limited use of the flaps, too. And in this document ( http://www.pilotspost.co.za/arn0000012 ) about the real use of the plane they also mention the need for trimming after flap deployment.

 

So I would say this seems to be normal for this plane.

It's like flying a cow compared to the B200 and the flaps do surprise you first time around but after a few crosswind landings i love it,

I don't know why we only talk about the things that cause us concern (including me), but on the positive side, one of the things that is really great about this release is the ability to adjust knobs (edit - and zoom) with the mouse wheel.  I have heard for so long that it will not work in x-plane... Well, it does and it is great!

But does the mouse wheel work well? I watched a Twitch stream and the guy said he had to adjust his dpi to lowest because the sensitivity is really touchy (ie difficult to get exact numbers)
