B55. The avionics continuous whine on the C310 drives me nuts! Other than that, it's a toss up.

Josh,

 

Ron is being a little modest. He has done an excellent repaint of the T-42 (military version of the B55) and has also

done a very nice repaint of the C310. I'd get'm both just for his repaints. :-)

Hi Josh,

 

I just picked them both up last weekend during the sale - both are superb and I would be torn to pick the better one even though I'm a Beech guy...

 

Go Navy !

:)

 

Regards,
Scott

Josh,

 

Look at Ron's repaints and see if there is one that really stands out and go with that one.

 

I like the T-42 because that is what I flew in the Army during my multi-engine, instrument training.

Painting is one thing, flying them is another. I'm not modest about that Army B55 though, one of my favourite paints.

While the VC in the Baron is gob-smackingly beautiful, I prefer flying in the 310 both for its lower fps impact and (IMHO) more realistic flight dynamics.

I have both, and there is something about the Baron and its VC that really makes it an immersive plane to fly. Not that crazy about the VC in the 310 but also a nice plane!

Baron is beautiful, I would choose that one (also caved for the Carenado B58 during their sale)

Tough call.  The B55 has a nicer VC, but the C310 features a model with a blank avionics area so you can install your own radios, GPS, radar, etc.

If your into old school, the B55 is an awesome airplane. I have it and prefer it over any of the other that I have. The vc is awesome. It flies like the real deal.  IMHO you will not be disappointed in it. Give it a try. Cpt out.
