For $50 that thing better be a carbon copy of the real deal.

I toyed with it a little today. Two things really bothered me. 

1.) no autothrottle, might simulate the real thing, I don't know

2.) I can't get the FMS to go direct to a waypoint for anything, just tries to find the gps route then goes to it...

There is no Hawker model that has autothrottles. The Hawker 1000 has Fadec-equipped P&W 305 engines that can maintain a selected speed on climb with a fixed throttle position, but other than that, all Hawkers have fully manual thrust management in all flight regimes.

Start cold and dark startup tutorial 

appreciate the review. Carenado is top of the line with texture modeling, I hope they merge with a strong programming group and finally release complete bug free fully featured packages. They sure raised their prices like they are... reading a few posts with bugs listed as usual Carenado are behind with fms and ap logic programming. Best to wait a week and see if all the big bugs are fixed first. Carenado burns you like Captain Sim.

They have went crazy with pricing!!!!! Considering they delayed the Hawker by a year to add the limited number of systems present I can't imagine how basic the original release was going to be... I think they need to hire somone to do the programming and release the plane as a basic bird then release a systems upgrade for a fee later for those who want systems depth. That way everyone is happy the systems junkies get buttons to push and the I just want to fly crowd get a good looking plane to do that in. Carenado gains even more revenue. But what do I know I only took classes in business strategy for the past 4 years lol
