Carenado Reveals Next Project

After the Hawker fiasco I said I would not spend another dollar at Carenado. But why do they have to keep creating my favorite planes!!!! The Phenom 300 is such a great business jet. At least from the ground service side. My only complaint is the location of the lavatory service panel. :) Not that it effects the simulation side of things. LoL.

 

Thankfully we have a great community here that can usually salvage Carenado's products and make them reasonably flightworthy. If they would only get their systems modeling down right.

Sending this to the Unofficial Carenado forums.  When it is released, we'll be excited to see the release announcement here.

 

Best regards,

Yeah I was hoping they'd do a E55P back when they did the original phenom.... but after the hawker I'm not so excited anymore

 

Oh well good for them!

In true Captain Sim fashion, moving on to a new project without finishing the last.

 

 

CS have "straightened up" with their Tristar, PLUS the latest servicepacks for their B777. Looks like Carenado's ploughing a lonely furrow now.   :P

Always wanted a Phenom 300 rather than the 100 or the Hawker...

 

What to do...

I think the only guy(s) at Carenado enjoying their work are the 3D modeler, texture and painter.  I have a suggestion, why can't Carenado team up with Eaglesoft?  Now that will be the match made in heaven, Carenado doing the 3D stuffs and Eaglesoft focusing on the systems.

 

Oh well wishful thinking on my part.  Seriously, at the very least Carenado should drop their price of these half bake product.  50 USD is only 9.99 bucks away from the Flight 1 B200!  And look at the value we are getting.

Hi all, 

 

Just came across the news that Carenado is developing a Phenom 300. Looks very (visually) detailed as always.

Ah that Phenom 300, such a beauty, who knows, may be as Olli said, they may be straighten up with this bird.  After all, they have the experience of the S550, the Phenom100 and now the Hawker under their belt, yes?

Why would they do so when they can sell products to the market based on renders and appearance only and ask the same as a fully functional systems product.

We can't crank them out like they do...

I just wait for the X-Plane version. The graphics will still look good, and the flight dynamics are re-done by someone familiar with the way XP-10 works.  I actually do like Carenados when using XP.  Until then, I'll just use RealAir & A2A for FSX.

Why would they do so

 

I know it's just a silly pipe-dream on my part...but for the longest time I've been wishing that ALL the major FSX devs would participate/contribute to a single collaborative project...possibly giving the community the best airplane yet that the industry has seen, and donating a good portion to a worthy cause or charity. Everyone would buy! I know I know...I'll just pinch myself and wake up now :-)

Dave, this is a fantastic idea! There has to be a way to start this up, and spread the news. That would be a feat to behold.

Good day dream. Competing business interests would have to be overcome for that to become a reality. Good dream though B)

If they did it for "We are the World" back in the 80's with all those huge ego's getting through it then I bet....ahhh nooooooo, I just woke up! :Big Grin:

 

Seriously though, it would need to be a cause that you are all very very passionate about. That would help you all work through the challenge of it.

Too true and much realized.  The hard part is in the systems.  It used to be hard for me to pass up on Carenado airplanes.  These days it's too easy, sad to say.  My last airplane was the PC12 and I'd had enough.  They couldn't lower the price enough for me to buy it.

Gregg, I think i have you beat with the PA-46 being my last Carenado. In any case,  it's fun to read the forum posts.

Greg, you hit the nail directly on the head. Three years to get the CX systems integrated correctly.

Corporate Jets done accurately is no small task and I might add, not inexpensive to produce.

 

The point in our response is straightforward, why a dev would choose the accurate road if their market won't demand it from them is still a puzzle. :rolleyes:

Oh well, back to work.

True, that's why I don't buy Carenado.  Hurry up with releasing your product already.  While we wait, had Carenado prices their product only as a pretty shell then I may give them some money for candies.  Asking full diner plate price and deliver junk is not flying.  I am surprised that Carenado is still getting away with it.  I guess there are enough people out there give them money.

Seems like the biz jet niche is about to receive lot of treatment from them. No wonder after being left alone for years. ^_^

 

Once again, the Carenado pace is either impressing or.. frightening but I wouldn't want to blame them for picking up the market at the most lucrative spot. Looking forward to their X-Plane offerings in that segment btw.

LOL..you're a wiser man than me, Les.  To me, the acid test for an airplane is "If I knew then what I know now about this airplane, would I still buy it."  For the PA46, I'd say the answer is yes.  (With some help from the devs, that would be an even greater airplane.) 

 

I've said it before, but I'd much rather pay to have a great plane refined than have yet another airplane...call it an investment.  In that regard, I think RealAir hit the nail on the head with the Dukes. Very glad to see Eaglesoft doing that with their airplanes.  I wish Flight1 would do a Mustang 2.0 but, it seems, they got tired of the airplane before the people flying it did.

It will probably be like every other Carenado, supermodel looks with an IQ of 2.

 

It's quite sad that they are so close but yet so far but as long as simmers accept and are willing to pay for mediocrity, they will continue to sell planes.

 

Its funny that I knew this and still got the S550 but that is my last Carenado plane until they put some effort into modeling the systems properly. From what I've seen on Facebook and other forums, the Hawker is simply tragic.

 

I have no problem paying PMDG type money to support my sim addiction but if the value isn't there, then I look elsewhere. 

 

I'll just keep on flying the CX 2.0 and the F1 Mustang for my corporate flights.  B)

Brilliant analogy!

 

.....and dead right.  I'm cured of "Carenado-itis".   I never 'bit' for the Hawker, and won't for this (despite loving bizjets).   Life has enough disappointments in it, without adding the frustration of yet another hollow, bug-filled Carenado to the fleet.

 

The day I buy another Carenado, will be the day they release what they do best - a relatively straighforward, non-EFIS, non-G1000 GA aircraft.   (So the Navajo it may be then!  :lol: ).

 

*as long as it's not $50, clearly.
