Caravan recommendations, please?

Recommended Posts

Last October, I visited South Africa where I was lucky enough to be able to spend about 10 days in the Bush. To get there from Johannesburg, we boarded a Caravan at a smaller airstrip to go deeper into the bush to reach our destination. I really enjoyed the trip because, being an avid Flight Simmer, one of the default planes is the Caravan. But I don't like the oversized VC and panel in the default plane, and would love to find a Caravan that is beautifully modeled, with panel, sounds, and dynamics. I know there is a payware one out there....and I will buy it, IF some of you tell me it is a good buy, easy on frames, and realistic to fly.Love to hear from any Caravan lovers out there. Stan

I own the FeelThere Caravan. It's decent, but nothing to write home about. It's basically the only one out there, so I've made do with it after doing a complete panel refit with RXP gauges and stuff. Ironically, even loaded out with RXP stuff (which eat a few frames), it's somehow more FPS friendly than it was with the default set it contained.Now if only they would get around to patching their 777. I always hear of a patch that's "coming", but it never comes. I think they should change their company name from "FeelThere" to "WhenWeFeelLikeIt". :)

Yes.I flew it after buying it this morning, and I found it to be very dependent on frames...and even though it was rather enjoyable to fly, it was difficult landing at KEWR (Newark). It slowed down tremendously. Stan
