I read something about a MU-2 Solitaire  years ago that Milviz was doing so I never get Excited about WIP projects  that they do, as a matter of fact I wanted that one to be my first purchase from them and to this day

I still don't own anything from them.

Looks like there about as far along as they were 4 years ago, Don't get me wrong I do indeed know what it takes to move a project to completion but they just 

have too much going all at once, just ask the investors in the KA .

I agree, just hope the wait will be worth it. Both the MU-2 and KA are going on 5 years or more since they were first announced. That is a long time to wait. I think it would be better if they didn't announce what they were working on until it was in beta testing.

I'm not going to hold my breath for anything milviz does from here. Burnt once and I'm done. I am at the point of preferring carenada over milviz. At least I'll know up front that I'm getting shafted.

Just enjoy what they do have instead of complaining about what they don't. I just finished a great little flight in the 310 that was just updated for v4 and it was lovely.

Same. That video was embarrasing. Amateurish is a nice word to describe it. I think I'll pass on waiting for the KA 350i and anything else they 'develop'.

Sometimes you just have to cut your losses.  Not reflecting on their actual projects, but in terms of all the CTDs and BSODs, that video was a bit of a car crash and I personally would never have published it publically!

Ain't that the truth.

Im one of the saps who prepaid for the KA 4 years ago. I've tried numerous times to get a refund. I don't want to wait anymore. They're response each time was arrogant and condescending. They must have a boatload of sales to treat people like that.

Agree, the video was painful to watch, not the image I had of Milviz!

I have never owned a Milviz product so I am certainly not speaking poorly of them but it has always seemed like they have a ton of products in the pipeline but not many are actually ever finished.  I do recall being interested in the KingAir several years ago and it does not appear it has ever been finished...???  Yet new products get announced?  Maybe I'm missing something.....

MilViz can make all the addons they wish, until i have the 350 in my hands which i paid for over 4 years ago, i'm not buying anything else from them. Alas, even CaptainSim isn't this bad - They launch updates from time to time, 4+ years is just ridiculous.

Sorry about the rant, but i feel really bad about this. Even the CRJ made it out already :P

Consider the 350i as a write-off, they are never going to release it.
I bought it more then 3 years ago, since then nothing happened.

It is unbelievable a company is throwing its pretty good reputation to the craps. Their choice.

I honestly respect what they do besides 350i, I like this lively video and this character Crazycolin. "This is what you'll get when you mess with us" - should be their motto :biggrin:

Cheers,

Dirk.

PS: and F-105 is also my favorite

I have been a volunteer Beta tester for Milviz ever since I was one of the T-38 pilots who tested the flight model. I also purchased the King Air. I can assure you that the King Air 350i is not a write off, cancelled, vapor ware, etc. It is still on the board as an active development. I asked Colin personally, what was the status on the King Air. He assured me that it will be done. I believe him. He has come across, in my dealings with him, as an honest man. I see no reason to doubt him here.

While I don't believe the King Air is vapor ware, it better be a damn good add-on. After waiting this long (almost three years since I paid), my level of tolerance has decreased to very low levels. If I recall correctly the last update I got was from almost a year ago.

If it's been sold to people over four years ago but still not shown up, but not officially cancelled either, then that is vapourware, since the definition of vapourware is 'a software product which is announced to the general public but is never actually manufactured nor officially cancelled'.

Sure, we know sometimes products get delayed, but four years is more than a mere delay, you could create a fairly decent airliner study sim from scratch in that amount of time, let alone a comparitively simpler prop twin. Developers banging out other stuff whilst products they sold long ago are buggy, awaiting patches or are a complete no-show is, frankly, disgraceful behaviour and companies should not be surprised to lose customers for having done that.

The Aerosoft CRJ and Level D 757 may have become a legend in terms of delays, but at least they never took money off people and left them awaiting what they paid for. In the case of that King Air, it is getting on for half a decade which those paying customers have been waiting for their purchase. In almost any other business arena where this kind of thing has gone on, a company would be facing accusations of fraud for having done that sort of thing.
