C421 Questions

Recommended Posts

I have been considering the C421 for a few weeks now but had a couple of final questions. 

It is available through the Carenado website on sale....is this the same aircraft?

Are there any Australian Repaints for C421 out there, I couldn't find any in the avsim library?

Finally I intend to also purchase the F1GTN complete navigational package, is it easy to install into the C421 and have you ever seen this program on sale as it is quite expensive for a guage?

Why would you do that when a superior GTN package with constant improvements (including another just this week) is available?

As Frank indicates, you actually have two options, Flight1 and RXP, that both will work nicely in the C421.

Expensive, yes.. if you only use the gauge for a single aircraft.. i have mine installed in at least half a dozen.. :wink:

Fabulous avionics package for GA aircraft.. IMHO..

What GTN package are you talking about- I am not familiar with it?

Please note the C421 is not on sale. It is actually an Alabeo product. The Carenado site also carries the Alabeo products but the Alabeo planes are not on sale this time around. The Alabeo twins were on sale a couple of months ago.


Specs: black box thingy with spinning fans, lights and a bunch of wires that go to screens with pretty colours and a keyboard with many keys. The black box thingy also has a push button activated coffee cup holder.

Yes it showed on sale and now it doesn't.  Won't be buying it at full price unfortunately. will wait for a same at some time in the future.  Unfortunately also no Australian registered repaints either.

Still not sure what GTN package fppilot was talking about that he thinks is superior to the F1 version.?

I have both and I prefer this Reality XP.

The support is amazing.

@fppilot and @JLuis  Fellas, I'm open to your suggestions.  I have been using the F1 version for a few years, but would appreciate your comments on the advantages of the Reality XP version compared to the F1 version.  If the advantages are substantial, a new purchase is not a problem, even though I'm already used to the F1 version.

Thanks,

Stew

If you have got one, no need to buy the other..

They both do the job  IMHO..

Thanks, Bert.  That's my initial thought as well.

Hi Ron, sorry was asking if Aussie repaints for it were available.  

In terms of the F1 or RXP GTN I see the specs specifically mention F1 GTN support but no mention of RXP except for FSX users.  As I am using P3D4 does that limit me to only the F1 version or is support available for the RXP GTN in P3D4?

What I was getting at was have you seen an Aussie 421C you would like to see painted?

i.e

photostream

or

or
