How to purchase Drealfleet Baron?

Recommended Posts

I'm in a fix. I wanted to treat myself and buy the Dreamfleet Beech Baron but their wrapper does not accept Paypal and their support forum is not accessible. They do not have an email on their site so are completely unreachable! How do I go about purchasing the Baron?

Flight 1 accept paypal.

Yes, but only for new products. The old wrapper for the Baron will not.

The DF Baron is for sale on the German page of Aerosoft's webshop as boxed version.

http://www.shop.aerosoft.com/eshop.php?action=article_detail&s_supplier_aid=10014&s_design=DEFAULT&shopfilter_category=Flight%20Simulation&s_language=german

 

Note the system requirements: "Windows XP". With Win7 or newer systems you may run into problems with it - as I did with the DF 727 that crashes my sim under Win7 - or not - as it happened to me with the DF Bonanza that is a dream to fly (literally!) under Win7, too. But for 6.25 EUR it is no big risk... And you'll probably have to replace the RXP gauges, anyway.

Viel Spaß!

I don't know where you live but you can get a boxed copy on eBay at www.ebay.co.uk - sorry, but I'm not able to paste the full link but just do a search for Dreamfleet Baron.  You could also try searching eBay in your own country.

 

Can't you use your, or a friend's, credit card to purchase from Flight1?

 

You say you can't access their support forum and there isn't an e-mail address you can use, but you can send in a support ticket enquiry and Jim will reply to you.

 

Be aware that although the Baron runs fine in Windows 7 you won't be able to use the RXP stuff if you have the 64 bit version of Windows.

 

Hope this helps.

Dreamfleet ceased operation years ago and provide no support for their previous products. You might file a support ticket with Flight1 and see if they can/will modify the wrapper, but I doubt that is the case.

Sascha, could you please report back your experience with installing the plane under your actual OS? I'm interested, too... Many thanks!

Excuse me for jumping in here but I had no trouble at all installing the Baron on Windows 7 32 bit version and it worked perfectly when I went to fly it.

Hi Folks,

 

Hah - I guess I liked the plane - some paints I did years ago - all based on real world aircraft - files in the lib... Got tired of seeing Carenado have all the cool paint jobs... I flew this plane a great deal - a definite favorite...

My Baron should land at my home field in 3 days. I'm still on Vista so don't expect any installation hassle

Hi Sascha, how went your install?

I hope you have instant fun with the plane.

I also decided to purchase the DF Baron, and - almost as awaited - the RXP gauges don't work under Win7. I will thus have to rework the panel as I did with the Bonanza.

My new toy arrived only yesterday. I installed right away -  a double click and hitting next a few times, perfectly smooth. I just started my first flight and everything seems fine. Even the Reality XP suite works now which it didn't for the Bonanza (checked and Bonanza Reality XP also works now) so I'm very happy! Especially as I still have a few days off.

Nice pic!

 

An old classic that I used to love when I was using FS9 :)

 

I own the FSX version of it (their Dakota is excellent too) but alas I'm on Win 7 64 bit and the locked RXP gauges don't work.

After some tests, I had no luck with the RXP gauges. So I had to make my own panel arrangement, made with freeware gauges:

Thanks. If anybody is interested, I can specify the source files and provide my panel.cfg.

This thread inspired me to load the DF Baron on my newer sim computer, which is on Windows 7-64 bit.  All the gauges seem to work for me.  I had to swap out the locked in RXP GNS 530 with the RXP GNS 530 WAAS, and replace the corresponding transponder and audiopanel from the WAAS GNS gauge cabinet but that was about it.  I am running FS9 from the "Program Files (x86) folder" so perhaps that is the explanation why the gauges all appear to be functional on my set up.

 

It would appear from this post on another forum that the gauges in the lite version on the baron don't work with Windows 7.

Well, the Lite version works just fine for me.  There shouldn't be any problems as the Lite version doesn't have the RXP and Garmin Trainer stuff.

I'm very happy!

 

Sascha, sorry for warming up this old threat. Just a question: How does the Baron fly for you? Background of my question is that I can't enjoy it as much as the Bonanza. I have massive problems to keep it flying beyond stall speed when cruising for instance at FL160 (which FSC suggests as cruising level). I have to let the engines run at 2.400 rpm for this purpose.

As side effect, the used freeware gauges (see panel above) have their glitches...

Hmmm, I'll check. Although I have to say I didn't notice that, semed to me to be pretty much on the numbers. Should be around 60% power at that altitude I believe
