Yeah, shame it's just their older stuff ..... I fancied the Seneca IV HD if it was cheap enough.     ..... but I've fancied picking up the F33 for a while now, so will go for that;  good price.

EDIT:  PS.. Just Flight have the same range discounted, so if you have any JF points you might want to buy there, to make it even cheaper.     I had 330 points so just got the Carenado F33 for 4 quid !!  :smile:

Thanks for the heads-up. It seems that their older aircraft are discounted up to 70%! I'll definitely get some it seems

Thanks for the HU  I guess it is time to finally pick up the Skymaster and B200 Kingair.  May even pick up a few FS9 planes at those prices since I still fly in the FS9 occasionally. May wait for the PCAviator Tuesday sale to get the additional 10%.

I'd urge people to read the reviews and forums on the aircraft you're looking at getting before buying.  Some of them are gems but some are...umm...not.

For X-plane the B200 + B1900D are fantastic. Stay well clear of the PD3 version of the B1900D

One question, how do you apply the discount, because there is no code, and the price doesn't change at checkout?

The discount is already applied as soon as you put the airplane in the cart. Make sure you're choosing one of the older airplanes because the newest ones aren't discounted.

I'm looking at the Carenado C377 for FSX.  Can anyone who owns it comment on the systems depth, FDE, and overall realism. As real and complex as it gets is of great interest to me. Great if there are consequences for bad behavior such as A2A provides. I always stick with the A2A's, PMDG's, Majestic's, Coolsky's etc..... of the world.  I've never bought a Carenado product for fear of disappointment. I'm not expecting PMDG quality for $17, but don't want a dud that I'll never use either. Any insight into the C377 will be helpful. Thanks.

Cheers,

Brian

It's nothing like A2A realism unfortunately Brian - it's a Carenado.    So there are no consequences, and as always systems are based entirely around default FSX functionality.    Saying that;   it's a blast to fly (good FDE), has great sounds, one of the best VC's Carenado have done, and really different (being a 'push/pull twin').

 

I'd say it's well worth the discounted price, but if you expect anything beyond a Carenado level of offering, you'll be disappointed.

It is one of Carenado's best efforts.

 

If you happen to have an RXP GNS530, it goes really well with the 337..

 

If you do get the plane, send me a PM for some minor fixes..

I'm considering the C340.  The fact that you can turn off the 3D knobs should allow me to place a GTN in the VC.  I have most of the other older releases that I could already want for.

 

What I'm hoping for is an Alabeo sale, as there's a few things from their older stable that I'd like to add to my fleet.

The Carenado 340 is greatly underrated IMHO.   It's a lovely twin with a great VC, decent FDE and IMHO a lot more character than a Seneca.

The F33 is a good plane, It flys a lot like the real one. I picked up the commander 114 and its a very nice plane too!

Yes, the 340. Great VC. Pity that the painters have not found it. There is a minor fde update and a realityxp retrofit available.

The F33 is actually my favorite Carenado plane, followed closely by the C185 Bush package.  For quite sometime, the F33 was my highest hours, go-to plane in the sim.  It's been surpassed by other stuff in the last year or so, as I'll tend to fly A2A releases instead of the F33, but I do still enjoy taking it out for a flight now and then.

 

These days, the Carenado release that I fly the most is more likely the C185 Bush.  I find it has a lot of character to it, it flies nicely, and the cockpit textures, while older, have a certain aged feel that feels 'right'.  Plus, there's not an over abundance of bush planes to compete for my attention, as there is for regular GA.

I'll be getting the F33 for sure.  The review of the Baron wasn't exactly stellar so I'm looking more toward the C340.  What doesn't work in that plane?

Hey Bert,

 

What do they fix?  I have a flooding fix but it keeps uninstalling my RXP 530.  I can either fly online without the GNS or fly offline with it...ugh.

Since their older aircraft have a 70% discount, I decided to get the M20J (if the aircraft list is chronological then it's their first FSX release), and for the price I am very satisfied. It feels somewhat outdated even compared to the default Mooney Bravo (as far as I know it was one of the FS2004 models that were ported onto FSX), but it's not a bad aircraft at all. It flies well, the HD repaint by Orbx gives it a whole new look and feel, and very surprisingly it works without a hitch in Prepar3D 2.4. I'll probably replace the sounds though because the looping artifacts are very distracting.
