Carenado Surprised !

Recommended Posts

I purchased a few Carenado Aircraft when I started with MSFS.  I had read many negative reviews about this Developer, , but decided to give them a try anyway. The first aircraft I got was the Mooney. The Mooney had some problems right away, and after a couple of weeks Carenado released a patch, then followed by another patch. At this point I had problems keeping the engine running after landing due to an idle speed that was too low and it seemed it had lost some cruise and climb power too. I put the Mooney in the hangar for a couple of months while I flew the DC6 and  the Kodiak.  

I read a couple of weeks ago that Carenado had released some patches for two of my aircraft, the Mooney and the Seminole. I got the Mooney out of the hangar, installed the update,  and started flying it, and guess what, all the bugs are fixed, and it flies great!! Not only that but they added the GTN 750 capability to the Mooney as well as the Seminole . I think they did a good job with these two aircraft, they fly well, they look good, in fact I just took off from Zurich on the way to Geneva, and the Mooney climbed to 9,000 with no problem at all. Right now I am cruising along at 9,000 with a TAS of 176 knots.  I am happy with my Carenado Aircraft.

fuel pump sound being extremely loud in outside view still isn't fixed on the Mooney.

Did they fix the engine performance that was killed after the xbox update?

What about the engine sound bug (most Carenado aircrafts have buggy engine sounds that alternate between different sounds after a few minutes).

Yes, the sound issues are still not fixed but other than that, it's pretty good.

Don't know about the fuel pump sound, I don't spend much time in outside view with the fuel pump running....I believe I answered the performance in my post. Don't notice any sound problems with the engine.

That's with or without the mod that boosts engine performance?

No mod, I never like the idea of putting a turbo mod on a non turbo aircraft.

Just did a test flight with the Mooney and I'm again getting this engine sound bug (couple minutes after turning on the engine, the sound suddenly changes to a different engine)

HUH!!!  I have flown this Mooney around 10 hours in the last few days, and I don't hear any abnormal engine sounds. Maybe you should check your sound settings.

Me too. It's a well known fault with a few of the Carenado addons and has stopped me flying the Mooney altogether. If I change to the exterior camera and then go back to the cockpit the engine sound has changed completely. I was hoping it would be fixed in the last update.

Carenado planes are "OK" they look pretty but that's it.

I just did what you said around 10 times, and there was zero difference in the sound when going to external and back to the cockpit., Exactly the same????
