I'd have to agree with Gregg 100%. RealAir is supposedly upgrading it to include a native P3D installer, as well as adding Flight1 GTN integration.

RealAir Turbine Duke, but with a caveat.  V2 is due out "real soon now" ™.

 

If the V2 Turbine Duke is anywhere near as good an update as the V2 piston Duke was, a great plane is about to get even better and will definitely be worth waiting for.

If you need to carry heavy loads and use short runways, check out the Cessna 208.

Depends what you mean by 'small' of course, but I too would also vote for the Real Air Turbine Duke, but, although it is a little bigger, don't overlook the excellent Flight 1 Beech King Air!

Smh... easy.. Carenado TBM850 or Carenado Malibu T-prop.  (Small-ish)... The difference between them about 200 knots

Carenado PC-12 and F1-B200 for (Bigger)... although the PC12 is Bigger, it flys like it's a small.

 

MilViz KA-350i is slated to be released in time for Christmas.. which is expected to be the ultimate Tprop of any size. 

 

 

 

No one, for whatever reason, has made the Extra 500... which I would consider a RW "best of" small Tprop.

Xman- True enough... but to be fair, The Milviz version will be the closest thing to the real thing.. and under 7 million dollars. The MilViz 350i has been under development for a couple years now, so they get a pass. Carenado did two Kings, and F1 did a 200 in that time span, so it just looks like it's raining KA's.

 

The Dash 8's are airliners, and the OP was looking for something way smaller then that.

Well I'm a big King Air fan so as much as I'd like my vote to be for F1's B200. But if the Realair B60 v2 is anything to go by I'd have to go with their Turbo Duke v2 upon realease. Heck even the current Turbo Duke is worthy of a place in best turboprops.

 

If I had to rank the turboprops (all sizes) it'll go

 

1. Majestic Dash 8-Q400

2. Realair Turbine Duke v1

3. Flight1 Beechcraft B200

4. Aerosoft Twin Otter Extended

5. PMDG Jetstream J41

 

Not to discredit Flight1 in anyway. Their King air is a bloody good plane but I'm not too fussed on the G1000 avionics.

IMO. Carenado PC-12 for a single and the Real Air for a light twin.

Ditto to that

The PMDG Js41 dont work at Prepar3D V2 or higher.

 

The Virtualcol Saab 340 its bad simulated and the cockpit is not realistic.

 

¿How plane of similar performance is recomended for you?

 

I know only one option. Dash 8 Q400 of Majestic, but that it have a MTOW 29 Tons is very higher.

 

Wait your notice.

Realair turbine or piston duke or flight 1 b200 i just bought its also very good cant wait for turbine v2.

 

I would stay away from carenado as in my opinion everything is half finished and the systems side of things are not upto scratch the same can be said for the razbam metro 3 i bought this in the sale and i still feel i was ripped off and is the worst purchase i have made in years.

Why do you feel the Metro was a bad purchase ?

To me it just does not go that extra mile with the polish and finishing touches such as no button click sounds and there is a few problems with it such as engines wont start on occassion and the locks dont work on the throttles unless you go in and change the config file.

 

I also know that the real metros dont have autopilot but they put one in anyway buy the vs cant be adjusted etc it was nice they included a autopilot function but in doing so they should have made it so all the functions work which they did not so it seems really lazy to me and if they were not going to finish the autopilot functions to a high standard then they should not have bothered implementing it.

 

I just feel for a product that they want you to pay for they should not rely on someone on the forums cant remember his name adding stuff that should have been there in the first place.

 

I am very fussy about what addons i buy and i expect them to be of high quality and tested before release Carenado and Razbam in my personal opinion just fall short of my expectations as a payware aircraft they dont go that little bit further such as realair a2a fslabs pmdg.

 

When i buy any of the above planes i know they will be the most realistic and polished products in my hangar.

 

This is not the case when i bought Razbam and i wont buy another Carenado either as these are what i call hangar queens.

Fair comments, Razbam could have polished this release a bit more in my opinion.

But the Mods file that is available take it to another level and make it a very enjoyable addon.
