We have many planes that we would like to see in flight sim but developers ( and rightly so ) normally say the product is not economically viable.

 

Carenado haven't even released their Fokker 50 yet but are moving onto another plane the Saab 340.

 

Doubt i've ever seen a Saab 340 ( RW ) nevertheless as long as they can improve on other stuff apart from their stunning visuals then this product should be good at the very least.

Neither.  Not until they start producing aircraft where the avionics and systems actually function correctly.

What's the benchmark? 

 

PMDG 737?

It looks great but after flying the B1900D for a couple of years i can't help but feel a bit dissapointed with the systems depth, is there a good version of the Saab currently available?

Saab 340 is one of my favorite commuter planes.  Flown on one many, many times.  Great sound and wonderful flying characteristics.  I look forward to that plane for Prepar3dv4

The higher level in design of aircrafts in fsx and p3d is coming with the production of Carenado and I enjoy their's models a lot.

Some one have bugs but other great producters have problems too. Never a Carenado aircraft come back to mine hangard to forget it... for problems

This a long time that I'm wainting for the S340 in mine sky.

Art is difficult, critic is easy...

Only a study-level one for xPlane.  No idea about fax/p3d.

Great another pretty plane with inaccurate systems, flight modeling, sounds, and full of obvious bugs when released.

My favorite is the SAAB 2000... but... I suppose this will not be done at an acceptable level. The same for the the 340.

The only one for P3D I know about is the Virtualcol one, which is hardly a study sim, however, at least Virtualcol are completely up front about what their products are and who they are aimed at:

Never mind deep systems, I'd be happy if it could just track an ils properly.

Oh god, I think I just had a heart attack. A Carenado Saab 340?? The Saab is my favorite plane. I spent my childhood flying on/seeing those things. I know that Carenado's systems are 'lacking' to say the least, but few would deny that their visual modeling is among the best in the business. I'll absolutely be picking this thing up the minute it's released, for both P3D and (hopefully) XP11 later on. Can't wait to have 2 Saabs to fly: the LES for systems when I have the time for 'serious' flying, and the Carenado for casual flights where I can drool over the photorealistic internal and external modeling. And you can all look forward to this livery, which I will paint the second I get the paintkit on my hard drive :cool:

Great Looking Model, PLEASE Carenado spend time on the systems and FDE.

Based on previous experience I'm not pulling the trigger unless there is positive feedback in both areas. If it's just another pretty face I'll pass; period!

Here's hoping this release will usher in a change.

Yup, exactly. Prolific they may be, but I hope they'll note that selling something before the bugs have been ironed out, ignoring all the complaints which flood in because of it, from paying customers, and then maybe eventually getting round to a patch, or not, quite often simply leaving up to end users to sort it out for themselves might be their idea of beta testing, but eventually people get wise to that and vote with their wallets. :biggrin:

I'm glad to see them having a stab at the SAAB of course, but they ought to sort out some of their existing catalogue as a priority; you don't need to be a rocket scientist to know the people awaiting that customer service will hardly be inclined to buy more stuff from you if you ignore them.
