I have it and, after some initial misunderstanding of the install process, am flying steadily.  Kind of like an uncut gemstone - the value is there but bugs are surfacing, mostly in the functions and use of the FMC and AP.  Appearance wise, it's a winner - inside and out excellent detailing.  All I've tried works fine but I'm more of a pilot than a navigator.

FPS are excellent (I've got an older 2500K 4GHz / GTX 980/ 16 GB ram)

The look and immersion is very good...textures/gauges in the cockpit.  The sounds are great.  The startup sounds seem spot on to me, and I'm around king airs a lot.  

They are going to add the RXP GTN 750 support which is great!  I don't like the default FMS, so for now I'm flying without it, flying mostly /A and using the two VOR needles.

The autopilot is a bit quirky... in level flight the aircraft pitches up and down, even with a weight that's in the envelope and a regular cruise speed.  That needs to be fixed.

There are some other weird bugs, but nothing too bad.  The developer is on the forums and they are already working on an update.  Price is a little steep in the x plane world but I think its worth it!  It's a nice break from the Laminar G1000, which apparently every addon now uses LOL.

Visually it's maybe as good as the TBM but it's not quite as systems detailed as that add-on.

We must be looking at different versions of the TBM..It does not come even close to the visuals of the 350.

Yes! You can find here :https://store.x-plane.org/King-Air-350_p_969.html

or waiting until July 4 or black Friday to get some discount. Like me.😀

In reading your 'signature', I see the Milviz 350i in your future plans.  Good luck - I was one of the $38 pay in advance group, waiting about five years now.

I doubt it, but I've only got a 1080P monitor with my aging system.  The TBM looks excellent no doubt, but at a cost.  It's currently the worse performing addon I use.

It is sad to read this, but I believe until 2020 they will be released...Meanwhile, I will buy Airfoillabs King Air 350 on the next sale from ORG. (July 4). My big problem now is to keep 2 sims. A lot of o money to spend in addons. I would like only to use a sim. I am trying to use more X-Plane 11 than P3D.

😣

Stayed with FSX a long time and had /have quite a collection of addons.  Now I'm strictly XP and building a whole new collection.

To someone that has this,,,I saw in a video that the pilot and copilot can be visible in the virtual cockpit view (inside)..can just the copilot be shown without the pilot in my seat?
