Just a few angles... minimal flying... a full review from me will have to wait.  I enjoyed the Milton Shupe version immensely... so this is a nice "upgrade."

Probably the most realistic textures I've seen at night yet...

Very nice pictures!

 

I see you already took it to the FBO for a GTN750 retrofit!. Probably ask them to recarpet the plane too,  and a bit of paint here and there. :)

Indeed - it wasn't clear on Carenado's page as most of the panel shots are pretty dark, but from others' captures that is one grungy interior.  I like planes that show typical wear, but this one is definitely at the limits!

Nice. You're right, the night textures are better than a photo!

Very nice pictures, excellent textures, mainly the ones of the passenger seats !!!. Please report about the flight dynamics, which for me would be the only "no go" for this aircraft.

Cheers,

Ed

Great shots Ryan - quick question can the panel lights turn on without the over head lights on ? thanks

And it flies like a dream, I think Carenado might be on a winner here. The engine noise level is just like the real world and the flight characteristics aren't far off.

Appears well done for the short time I flew it tonight. Did a quick "radar pattern," ILS approach not coupled (no AP). Power settings along with FF values seemed close per the charts. The large flaps really add drag and make the thing balloon if fully extended.

 

I don't like though how the levers block the NAV1 active freq on the GTN750. There is DME which is great! There's not really any overhead panel backlighting unless I missed that switch. There are of course flood lights/cabin lighting as you can see. You can disable VC reflections and the grime spots on the VC Windows which I chose. Once you do that the view for vfr flying is better. Window opening frame still blocks a bit of the view potential.

 

Need I say anything about the modeling lol?

 

I like that C has gone back to their roots, with this analogue gauge aircraft. Sounds are amazing too! I haven't had time to find bugs either.
