Looks pretty dang good if I do say so myself. Glad they stuck to the standard six pack. Curious to see what first adopters think.

It's a good airplane, immensely popular with it's RW owners.  I'd expect they'll get good sales out of it.  Not as capable as the PA46-350P but has a good reputation.  The six pack is nice as is the 750 integration.  Wish they'd done that in the PA46...so wish.

Have a horrible feeling I am about to become one of those first adopters Johnny!   I don't think I can resist an Ovation;  even though this will be the first P3D load up in a couple of weeks, as I've been XP11 obsessed lately :cool:

Me too. I am the owner of a real world M20M - same airframe as the Ovation but different engine. I will be curious to see if they have got the flight dynamic right when flaps are extended. That will be my test.

Just bought it.    Unusually slow download speed from Alabeo, so perhaps a lot are buying it today!

@DavidP I fear Alabeo/Carenado are notoriously random in this area - some 'go up' some 'go down' - rarely in line with the real aircraft!

Looking forward to your initial thoughts, fellow Canuck (or is it Brit?).

Both! :biggrin:   Downloaded, so about to install.  Then I'll take some screenies and post them in the Screenshot forum, and put a link in this thread. :cool:

Yes, I usually pass anything that they produce but I'm afraid I may relent this time. Not expecting it to be too accurate but looks good. I always liked the look of Moritz gauges!

Me too!  There's not many payware Mooney's so this is on my buy list when the pc is running again.  I'll watch for JYW's mini review

I'd suspect it will be fairly good.  My bet is that they reuse the FDE from their earlier Mooney made by Bernt Stole with some mods.  I didn't get that one but heard it was very good.
