Wow. 100 bucks for a flight simulator addon? I realize that it's probably going to be super realistic, but I think I'm gonna wait for the price to drop or for a sale...

Now this is really interesting. Looks to be an amazing simulation. My poor credit card...

$100!!!

 

I was really looking forward to the FSLabs A320, but that price is just cost prohibitive. I would have probably forked over $70-$75, but at $100, this will probably be a lost sale.

P3D you can expect around $125 maybe slightly higher... But that's what we are used to by now anyways

(Assuming its PMDG level realistic), If its really eye candy good and not FPS expensive (with VC only option no need for 2D these days)..then it maybe worth it...but if its graphically poor like the concorde and FPS expensive...then that would be a hard decision.

At that price I'm certainly going to wait for reviews....thorough and numerous ones.

With only P3D on my PC, I have no choice.

 

But to be honest guys, if we are paying 50-60$ for a Caranado aircraft then, is $100 for a PMDG type aircraft really that expensive... we spend that kind of money for GF modules and stuff too...  These kinds of aircrafts don't come out that frequently either. so I am going  to give the cost of the product a pass.

 

I wonder how they have setup the throttle unit for the A320.. Aerosoft had to do some workaround for their A320  (which works nicely).

 

But Aerosoft eyecandy for their VC with night lighting was fantastic... so on an eye candy level...FSLabs have to deliver.. I know not many are interested in eye candy.. But I am. :). We spend a lot of money for eyecandy weather, eyecandy LC and  textures ..so why not eyecandy VC too.

It will be sometime in 2017 before we can expect a P3D version. First they need to work through the early adopter issues, then the general release to public of the FSX version and all the support issues that will entail. That is not going to be quick and easy. They said beta for P3D will not even start until all that is worked through.

Same here. I can live with the Aerosoft without issues rather than pay a large amount for a new aircraft. The reviews and issues will have to be the guide whether I get it or not.

Maybe that is a good thing....P3D will likely be 64 bit by then and FSL will probably need to release a version that is compatible so at least you will not have to buy it twice.

Wow, sure glad I have the Aerosoft bus and love it. 100 for a virtual aircraft is just greed. A2A will bring out their Connie soon and that is the only aircraft I really am looking forward to. I am sure it will be in the 60 buck range with Accusim and that is a bargain.

We? Maybe you are but there are a lot of simmers that are not used to paying those prices.

We? Again, maybe you are used to paying Carenado those prices. I'm certainly not.

I love it when people in the US complain about a simulator add on price! Be thankful for two reasons! 1: You will get an amazing product.

2: it could be worse! In fact it is if you are Australian, Canadian or Kiwi. For us it's more like $130 - $140!

You forget when the exchange rates weren't quite so kind to those of us in the US.

How will NZ be able to enforce that?

Just like they do in Europe. For example Simmarket. I guess it is all done through the banking system. Even PayPal will have an auto tax added if you use that method of payment.

The expectations for this plane are sky-high, and if it ends up being as awesome as it sounds, $100 is a great price! PMDG are incredible products and priced very similarly. So, let's let the initial impressions flood in!! And then the painful wait for P3D release.......

I`d love to know how the NZ Govt will get the GST off basement developers in other country's? not everything is sold with paypal or simmarket... anyway FSlabs mentions they are passing the cost of insurance to the customers for P3d, what insurance!!

Sorry but I'm not religious! And I don't see anyone forcing you to buy anything!
