So, Carenado is developing an F406

A quick bit of modelling, stick a half-baked FDE in, out the door, and on to the next. I see its appeal for some, but they lost my interest years ago. A2A all the way for me. It takes longer to learn and master an A2A plane than it does to develop a Carenado/Alabeo one!

Very cool! I really like the sleek look of this airplane! I'll probably have a very close look at it, once it's released! ;-)

Here we go again.

 

I understand the frustration.  A2A will probably be coming out with a high-performance or twin next so I'll probably be looking more toward that myself.

Every time Carenado releases a new aircraft or even says one is being developed the bashing starts...Maybe that is why they do not participate in the forums..

 

I remember flight sim on wire frames...look how far we have come..

They seem to do better with prop aircraft than jets, so this may not be so bad.

 

I haven't heard much bad with the latest two.  I have the C404 and it's good...flies well...has some bugs they need to address in a 1.2.  If they don't, though, I won't be getting another Carenado for a while.  They've been getting away with dropping products like a bad date for a while.  But, with other companies making GA planes, they are going to have to step up.

Unless someone can tell me otherwise, Bernt is doing all the Carenado FDE's - and they are very good imo.

In which case I apologise if I am misguided - my opinion was based on my prior experience with the C152, C182, C216, Cherokee and Saratoga all of which had their issues, and also some reviews I read of more recent releases. Hopefully they have come along since!

Carenado are looking for real pilots of the F406 on Facebook. So at least the FDE shouldn't be too bad.

I was afraid that some of the naysayers were going to pile on again. I bought the Navajo and really enjoy it.

I honestly wasn't.  I did get the 404...nice and different airplane from anything else I have.  But, if it comes down between a Carenado twin and an A2A twin I have a feeling about which way I'd go.

Having flown these for thousands of hours in Alaska, I'm really looking forward to this one. And yes - I have been talking to Carenado.

I hope you're a beta tester and test the crap out of it then.

I agree!

I know he did the Skymaster awhile back and although it had a few bugs that probably should have been caught in beta (not related to the FDE) it was well received.  I still enjoy taking it for a spin when i feel the need.

There is a reason why A2A only put out a few civilians a year..

 

Im hoping Carendos next release will be sub $15 so people can stop picking on them

Some people may complain about Carenado, but they release a lot of actually very compelling GA airplanes... Barring of course the Hawker. Their Citation Bravo was very good. I have always loved their C210 ever since it was first released for FS2004. The Navajo, C404 and now this!? I am so pumped! :D

Well, Carenado keeps cranking out new stuff, and don't make updates or patches for the ones they've already released. My last purchase from them was the PA46 Malibu. There won't be any more for me. I like the aircraft, flaws and all, but an update patch to address the problems would be nice. I'm not bashing them, just stating facts. I have sent emails to their website numerous times, and usually get ignored as best. Too bad the don't take care of what they have already have instead of making stuff for Xplane, Alabeo and so on. Oh well,guess that's enough "factual" bashing. Just my 2 cents worth.
