Carenado Pilatus PC-12 P3D4

Recommended Posts

I like it but not without the GTN 750 installed into it. I am a pilot in the real world but have never flown a PC-12 nor any other turbo prop for that matter so I can't speak to the flight dynamics. It does feel a bit lighter in the controls than I would expect.

 

I have read from real PC-12 pilots that on approach with the flaps down it has a very nose down attitude. That is certainly true with the Carenado offering but I almost feel like it is too extreme. I fly in VR and the approach sight picture is so nose down that it feels like I am going to crash.

 

That being, said it is one of my favorite turboprop GA airplanes in P3D.

The Carendao PC12 is not comparable with a product from a quality marque. Many aspects are not simulated. However, I have it and like it. I also like the plane in real life.

I would not use it, however, if it wasn't for community mods that improve realism and flight dynamics (see the Carenado forum on Avsim - look for the PC12). Arezone also have a soundset which I find is a slight improvement over the original sounds.
