The reduced sounds are only for the avionics whine.. Doug Dawson's suggestion should give you full flexibility.

Thank you! 😃

For those of you lucky enough to own the P3Dv4 update of the very excellent Aerosoft Catalina you can use their KLN90B GPS unit in the Flight1 Islander in place of the original KLN90A.

I don't have the Aerosoft Catalina but I do have their older Twin Otter.  That aircraft came bundled with the KLN90B by FS2x (Don Kuhn) .  Wondering if the one in the Catalina is the same?

One would think that Flight1 will offer generous discounts on an 8-year old FSX-only product, especially given that there is now an Islander available from BlackBox which is not only $6 (15%) cheaper, but runs on all ESP platforms for the same single price.

Never understood Flight1's unrelenting attitude on price and has given them almost no business, despite spending thousands of dollars on add-ons over the years.

F1 does NOT have a BN-2 for P3D v4 and I have always received an excellent discount for upgrading my GTN units and airplanes. What are you talking about?

Hey DJJose, I would love to be proven wrong as I do believe that F1 has some really good quality add-ons, but I have almost never seen any sales at F1. I have seen the odd product offered at a small discount, but the base price was always so high that the discount was almost meaningless, or it was a product that didn't interest me. And those deals are are few and far between at F1, unlike Simmarket and PC Aviator for example, where one can almost always go on auspicious days and get a bunch of great deals. As a result I've stopped going to F1, because there is almost never anything of value there.

I'm not talking of upgrading, which most other webstores also offer. One of the few products I did buy from F1 was EZDock and they did offer a really nice upgrade price to version 2. So, you are correct about discounted upgrades, but that is only after getting the original at full price, not a sale.

Anyway, I can see you are not in the best mood and I don't want to go completely off-topic. I would like to get an Islander and agree with many other people that the F1 version looks better and sounds like it kinda works in P3D4. I was just hoping that F1 would come to their senses and offer it at a more competitive price, given recent changes in the market.

A troll? Come on... Check the number of posts/reputation points. A troll would have a lot less don't you think? Or could it be you don't like folks disagreeing with you? I can understand that 😁
