Sweet.  I watched the earlier videos.  Looks very realistic.  Graphics not the best but I think they were going for high fidelity/realism for this aircraft.  Sounds are crazy good too.

A nice combo re: engine choice and system detail aiming point. Must admit that I didn't have that dev on the radar but this looks good.

 

Ok, stupid question of mine. Do they offer a feature for the sound to come in "via" nc headsets? Asking because I had to lower those on the J41 and I would fear that this manual edit is needed on the C441 too. Garretts drive you nuts. :o ^_^

 

Although I really like that startup phase in the vid.

Nope that's something that would Flysimware even better. They come with their own crummy (compared to RXP) GNS units

I don't own the plane but that VC unit looks very much like the 3D model would fit fine with a manual RXP edit.

I bought it.  I had a problem getting the download link to work.  I emailed support and received a prompt answer (within minutes) and the link was fixed.   Just learning at this point.  But, it seems to fly just fine.  I flew it from KRDD to KPDX at FL220 and it performed flawlessly.  The autopilot performed smoothly enroute and it coupled to an ILS just fine.   IMO it's worth the money.

Guys on their face book page it says all products reduced by 50% from 24th nov.

 

I wouldn't have thought it includes the 441 but it does say all products, thats the only thing keeping me from buying today, may as well wait a couple of days and see what happens

 

The  turbo 402 will also be a great buy at half price.

Is it as loud as in the video, Bill?

Well the real Garretts are that loud.  We used to do what we called the "Garrett Salute"....placing both index fingers in our ears when I was a young ramp rat.  I adjusted the engine volume in FSX to calm it down a bit.

:lol: Lets practice that one then.

 

Well, I like good and impressive sound sets as much as the next guy but I guess that, if I get that plane, it will receive the same treatment as the J41. No biggie.

What mod did you do? I have the J41 to

I lowered the volume of the engine sounds with a free editor, Audacity. So the rest of the plane (and any FSX volume slider affecting all planes) stays the same, just the Garretts come in less prominent.

 

Just look for all sounds including 'jet' and 'rev' in the name, drop them into Audacity and then pick lets say a -3db (or more) "amplify" setting to lower their volume. Then save them as wave files and overwrite the original ones (make a backup first, just in case).

 

If you want to lower the startup sounds too, those reside in another folder. Well, I can give you the more detailed description via PM if you like.

Thanks You gave me a good idea and I may take you up on that but I just want to try something first. I use Simstarter and I create different start profiles for my planes and I can set eng volume for the J41 so Im off for a flight and to give it a try

Now that's a nice feature indeed. Didn't think about that one. Thanks for the HU.

Looks like a really well done plane!  (But they're going to have to make it allow people to have RXP and/or the GNS650/750.)  Please, don't do all that work and then skip that important step.

Extensive use of 2D gauges and avionics in the Flight 1 C441, which does make it easy to bang in your own avionics, but the Flight 1 C441 was developed for FS9 and modified to work in FSX.   From the reviews I read, it lacks a lot of systems modeling and nothing on the switch panel on the left side of the cockpit is functional. 

 

Flysimware's GNS-530 is based on the stock, MicroSoft GPS, but with 3D knobs and a variable intensity back lighting.  It's a cute feature, but it would have been real nice if they had included an additional model with a flat space on the panel so the user could easily install whatever avionics they desired, similar to what MilViz did with their Cessna 310R.

Doesn't look all that great in the graphics department, but it's alovely aircraft IRL, so I might not be able to resist it :)

I emailed the dev about RXP support and he said they were looking at both the Aerosoft GTN750 and Reality-XP. That would be great

Just to note that the videos shown at the beginning of this thread are, as far as I can tell, the old vids from 3 months ago ........ the release version has some improvements to texturing, including the black glareshield cowelling in the VC, which I believe is quite considerably improved.
