Awesome as always! Every A2A GA stuff is a must buy. I have only one wish, please give us the option to choose KTS speedo, hate the MPH ones.

I have about 20hrs in a real Comanche - N6852P, it was an absolute joy to fly.   Everything Scott says about it in the video is true.  Flying a Comanche is like flying a 1960s muscle car....roomy, powerful, stable yet can yank and bank well, the best flying experience i have had.

I am thrilled the Comanche has the same simple AP from the Cherokee (which was based on the real AP in Scott's Comanche).   The Comanche is a plane that begs to be flown with your hands and feet.  The AP only gives your arm a break during a long cruise.  You still have to monitor it, make trim adjustments, and take over for large course changes.  Plan on Climbs, Descents, IAPs being flown by hand, as they should be in a plane like this.

 

Cruise wise, a 'plain jane' Comanche should do around 160kts at 25 squared and maybe a little bit more with the speedmods.

Looks epic as always. A real treat would be a future update featuring the 400hp IO-720!! They didn't make many of them, I think. A must buy, as always.

I wish theyd release a faster twin. All this slow stuff is only fun for so long.

 

Lol if you want to go fast, fly a civil P-51, it goes fast, and unlike the jets and turboprops, it can go fast at low altitude. :lol:   Eventually we will get a T-33, that should move pretty well too.

My first ride in an airplane was from my neighbor (private pilot) and I was 12 years old.  It was the Commanche 250.  Wow.  Can't wait for this bird.

Looks awesome!!!  I have been watching A2A Cherokee videos all weekend and I was planning on getting the Cherokee some time this week.  I was so looking forward to that but now I see this.  Hmmm, do I wait?  Or hit the credit card twice??  I know where this is heading already...:)

For that,  get the RealAir Turbine Duke V2. 

 

It is true perfection in many ways,  and can be equipped with Garmin GNS or GTN avionics.

 

Just like a2a,  RealAir sweat the details.

lol technically the Civil P-51 is a civilian plane if it is a Cavalier edition.  Cavailer rebuilt Mustangs as executive aircraft in the 50s and had them FAA recertified with a Normal Airworthiness Certificate, the same kind of certificate found any normal category GA aircraft.  On Mark did the same thing with A-26s, turning them in to executive aircraft.  I think there are actually more airworthy Mustangs then there are Turbine Dukes, tho not sure how many of the surviving Mustangs are Cavalier editions.  Anyway, fly what makes you happy :BigGrin:

 

I digress lol.  Anyway, the Comanche should be fantastic.  Jake posted a teaser shot on the A2A forums, it is looking beautiful. :lol:

I love their Cherokee the best of all of their planes.  But I like to fast so I'd skip the Cherokee and buy the Comanche.  If I knew a Comanche was coming I would have skipped the skylane.  Somehow they always get me!

Glad there's someone else out there like me!  A swappable ASI would be appreciated!  Though it does have the IAS inset.

I have the Duke not Turbine. But am looking for a more popular model more widely used. Like a C402 or similar that has RXP compatibility. Both Flightsimware C441 and C402 look interesting but they do not support RXP.

 

Money is tight, if I did buy the C441/C402 I'd also have to buy the GTN and I don't have 100 extra to spend this summer like I used to.

 

A2A lets me use the RXP units and I prefer them to the GTN. The Duke Turbine is a little faster but the airplane has too bright night lighting and the Turbine, like the Duke is not that interesting to me.

Yeah, if what I have been seeing posted elsewhere on the net is correct, it's going to be released this week!?!?!?!? This will be my first single engine GA purchase. I'm so used to pmdg timelines...was thinking I'd have another year plus to wait. Lol. I guess I can hold out an extra day or two if it really is coming this week!!!!

Whats amazing about this project, is the Comanche is a plane that they actually own in real life.  They have a direct source for research material.  I think it is going to be as accurate as FSX + Accusim will currently allow and will be a GA single that sets the new standard for FSX.    

 

We also have a T-6, Seminole, T-33 to look forward too.  A V35 still may be a possibility...these are projects that we know about...who knows what other projects they have under wraps.

 

Since A2A also now owns a Piper Aerostar, we may eventually see an Accusimmed Aerostar, and you will then have your accusimmed high performance twin.  The Seminole is no slowpoke either, it can keep up with a Comanche.

 

Hopefully A2A will suprise us with a monster warbird or two....the GAs are great fun, but ones in a while, its good to get some planes that have some cajones :BigGrin: ....F7F, A-26, P-61...etc...nothin like having a pair of R2800s, a little more pop than these lawnmower GA engines LOL  If they did an accusimmed Howard 500, I would get carpal tunnel.....from flying :lol:

Indeed! Compare that to another certain developer with a Cessna 406 in the works, of which the modelling seems well underway. And then they post on their Facebookpage if anyone knows someone with access to a 406...  :rolleyes:

+1 on this one - the Howard is the precursor to today's executive jets.

Enjoy this vid of this restored On Mark A-26 Marketeer, I found it last night while looking at Howard 500 vids.  LIke the Howard 500, an excellent vintage executive aircraft.

 

 

An A-26 project would be a great project for them, with an A-26 for the warbirds and perhaps an On Mark Civil conversion for the GA fans.  I mean, who in their right mind would turn down a ride in this beast....let alone some seat time lol.
