Carenado King Air 350i shot

Recommended Posts

Carenado did a spectacular job on this bird - at first glance  all I did was engage AP put in altitude - raise VS and it went right to desired altitude spot on also descending spot on - didn't use FLC - didn't have to really just up the VS and it goes to the correct altitude - very happy with this purchase - interior is gorgeous also 

 

Have no doubt it wont follow the FMS - you might want to think about getting this one - feels like a larger King also - super job Carenado - didnt think twice and glad I didnt    :wink:

 

Oh best looking Carenado to date - its stunning inside and out  - quick pic does not do it justice - you have to see it for yourself

CJ2 does no reason this wont - fms is simple to use actually find it easier than GTN

No problem you will be seeing some re-paint - re-works of this bird when I can

I have faith that Milviz will release theirs before I draw my terminal breath.

Both suits me fine now just have to learn the ins and outs of this kind of prop aircraft

Don't you have the B200 by Flight1 already? I thought I'd seen some shots by you with it.

Yes but do not know much about the prop operation to tell you the truth - have to check out some YT videos on that

Ohhhh....I thought you were saying it doesn't.  Hard to imagine wasting all that framerate with an FMS that doesn't work.  I don't have the CJ2.

FPS in 350 are excellent usually find props to be a bit hard - overall - really happy with this one  :wink:

 

Flight dynamics feel nice to a bit heavier than its little brothers noticed that right of the bat - feels really good

Seems like a decent looking aircraft Richard (aren't all Carenado's? :smile: ).  But for those that want more realism, aircraft like this do not climb in VS mode in realistic operation.   If a FLCH or IAS hold mode is availabe, it will be used in climb, as it offers stall protection which VS does not.    Climbing using VS feels too much like the default FSX/P3D airliners for me - just not realistic for this type of aircraft.  

 

Not judging those that want or can enjoy aircraft like this, with a more basic or fun operation.   But for those that want that little more realism (and after all, CAR do claim that these aircraft have FLCH, even though it never works properly), can this aircraft really be recommended? Or it just recommended in terms of it's eye candy appeal?

Great shot Rich!

 

Does VS mode still bust altitude? It will on their C90 unless you press ALT first then VS. in the real plane the autopilot will never go through the altitude you select during climb or dsecent.

I've only flown it a few times Ryan and the VS worked perfectly.

Hi Bill - picked up late last night havent tried FLC yet but will and fms

Great shot Rich!

As Vic stated VS works perfectly didnt touch anything but FD put in altitude and it went to it spot on - descending also spot on - really need to learn the workings of a turbo prop and setup throttle quadrant for it

Ok used VS to get to altitude went right to it - changed the altitude no VS hit FLC went right to it up or down - would have got there faster using VS but wanted to see what it does - wish they all worked like this especially the Hawker

 

Now anyone know how to turn on the Baro screen oh and yaw damper would not turn on what am I doing wrong

One problem getting real bad blurry ground textures and disappearing autogen - not good finally get a Careando that works and now this - always something

Hi Rich

" always something"

That is going to be my epitaph

 

Here lies steve brokenhearted

P3D crashed

He then departed.
