I suppose this has something to do with gauge coded in JS vs. WASM.

I believe (based on a post by someone from either the FBW or WT teams who know a lot more then me) the sim provides bitmap images only of the radar which the stock Garmins use.  It basically shows clouds only, not precipitation under the clouds, etc.  

Perhaps Carenado felt it was good enough to do what the stock Garmins do, but Aerosoft felt it wasn't good enough?  Or maybe those stock images aren't available via WASM?

The picture doesn't really guarantee much. Recall that the early shots of the Next Gen EMB 110 also showed it with a radar scope lit up on the dash, but it's non-functioning in the release version.

Very good question.

Oh Carenado... you tempt me. I trained on the V... and I want a de iced GA airplane. I will wait to see if it is at least Mooney decent... I was hoping Milviz would get the 310 out soon.

Has anyone got any experience of the P3D/FSX version of the Seneca V ?

As things stand I'd definitely prefer more MSFS planes coming from the Alabeo back catalogue than the Carenado one.

(Also is it too soon to complain if it doesn't support the GTN 750 mod yet ? 🙂

I really really really wish Carenado would start selling these on their site and not just the marketplace.  Updating them is a PITA and if a patch breaks them you've just got to wait weeks until it works correct.  

Additionally you cannot access some important files to edit things like we could in the past because it's marketplace only.

Their Mooney is ok and I do fly it but unless it's a plane I desperately want (like a lancair legacy with analogue gauges , I'll be passing on this one).

I for one am looking forward to this and the Saratoga (the single engine variant) should soon follow.

Yeah, I feel the same, that was a waste of money, I tryed it once and uninstall it.

The weather radar map layer is exposed on the JS side, but map layers are not published to WASM as of now I believe.

There are two things coming...

First, in the next sim update, there is planned to be a change in the WXR to return rain and not clouds, which is a big plus. That should arrive in SU4.

In addition, it is definitely "on the radar" to implement a solution for wxr in WASM, but I don't know the exact plan there right now; I just know it's known and in the pipeline.

It was the Waco that really made me take issue. The fact they never fixed the C of G. Haven't flown it more than 3 times.
