Just saw this in my email inbox as well!!!  YES!

 

Thanks LES!

 

edit:  Is anyone having issues swapping the two comm radios from stby to primary?  Niether swap button seem to work.  The swap switch works on the NAV1 radios and other radios though.  The swap DOES work on the 2D popup of the COMMs.

Just wait for a sale....  I got it for about 35 I think.

 

It's very very good though... kinda like a PMDG bird in FSX.  In fact I'd say it's better than the J41 for FSX.

This issue has been fixed... simply re-download a fresh installer.

It's probably the PMDG of X-Plane 10. Should I still be using X-Plane, I wouldn't hesitate buying this one - for $55 it's a bargain given the complexity of the modeling done on this add-on...

Far better performance on my rig and like Jose said, it's a very complex bird.

Glad to hear about increased performance! Lovely bird, but quite heavy on the FPS. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone.

Heavy as a Carenado or heavier than those?

For me, the Saab is WAY heavier. Like, half the FPS.

Can you specify your system specs and what you mean by "WAY heavier" than Carenado add ons?  I've seen the exact opposite on several peoples systems.  My system is about 4 years old, and I'm getting, on average, 40fps+.  Minimum of 28-30fps, all with render settings set to high.

Waiting for some report on the new upgrade because otherwise half FPS of a carenado means unflyable for me.
