Best single engine turboprop for p3d v5.1 - special request

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a great single engine turbo prop for p3d v5.1. But in my case I have a special request. I want two things. realistic flight/system  modelling, and here is the big one.. I need a super clear vc panel with clarity on the  vc gauges. Ive been using  sim's  for many years but I always have a hard time getting super clarity and acuity from the vc panel. I am using a Asus 1080ti card and Asus 4k ( although Ive tried both 4k and lesser settings ) . Im my case I always try to get things super clear ( gauges ) in the vc but to me most gauges are generally or somewhat  blurry. Ive also tried with mipmaps off and on but to me there is little difference with respect to gauge acuity

So to recap; 

I am looking for a new single  turbo prop and if it can have amazing clarity and acuity with respect to vc gauges that would be a home run for me

I can confirm that I have rarely seen incredibly clear vc gauges in ga aircraft in fsx or p3d.. I do find that xplane gauges on 'add on" aircraft  are  a bit better than fsx and p3dv5, but I really like flying the p3dv5.1 product. . I have found that pmdg  Boeing and aerosoft airbus products are really good with respect to vc gauges. That is the level of clarity im looking for in a single turboprop application

Thoughts 

Thank you 

 Peter

good luck with that, I don't think one exists.

A2A aircrafts gauges are super clear IMHO but they are not turboprop AFAIK.

Me too I am fan of super clear vc panel.

Agree with you Peter, regarding PMDG and Aerosoft bus regarding gauge clarity.

Former Real Air Simulations was also specialist of crystal clear gauges. Besides they were pioneer in fluid analog gauges movement in the days of FS2004/FSX.

Carenado‘s Pilatus PC-12 - with Bert‘s mods. Great VC and believable flight dynamics, but somewhat simplified systems.

Interestingly I had the realair lear jets back in the day. They were awesome and a bit retro ( even an 8 track player.. imagine that??!! ) people may not remember such retro stuff . But they did have very clear vc gauges. I don't know why the vc gauges are  so hard to model, but its either my old eyes or it must be very difficult to get the clarity. I particularly find g1000, aspen and glass panels tough to read in the vc mode.   However glass must be easier to model in 2d because , as an example, I a use the f1 750 gtn  Addon and in 2d or as a pop up window it is really clear. 

Lastly I could buy a  Carenado turbo prop. But, to me all of their stuff feels almost identical and I can't read their vc. in panel glass without struggling

The PC12 might just be the ticket... with the latest user mods, it is very nice.

I only know of two turboprops in P3Dv5 that I'd consider coming close to realistic w/r/t systems and flight dynamics, and neither are singles. 

One's the Milviz Beech Kingair 350i, with a good rendition of the Collins Proline 21 integrated avionics suite, and the other is the Majestic Dehavilland DHC8 Q400, a turboprop small airliner.  Panel clarity, systems depth and flight dynamics on both are good.  A critical (for me, anyway) component of a decent turboprop simulation is engine/prop sounds, which are hopelessly boogered-up on the majority of turboprop add-ons for the ESP platforms (e.g. FSX and P3D) , which generally try to jury-rig the default recip-based engine sound system in the sim.  A turboprop does not change pitch when torque is changed...it changes pitch when prop RPM is changed.  It changes in intensity with torque changes.  The Q400 does this well, the Milviz 350 somewhat less so, but still passable.

The Realair Turbine Duke is another, but alas, it is no longer sold.

It's compatible as-sold.  No mods necessary with the latest version.

Correct.

1. Purchase and install the Carenado PC12

2. Run the F1GTN.. exe in the PC12 folder to install the GTN 750

3. Request the user mods via PM to me with your email address

4. Install the mods (instructions included)

I am surprised that no one has mentioned the Carenado PA46 Malibu Jet Prop.  I pulled it out of the hangar recently and logged about 10 hours and it left me asking myself why I had neglected it.  I have it configured with a pair of GNS gauges and the RXP WX gauge.
