Eaglesoft Piper Twin Comanche for FSX

Recommended Posts

Has anyone purchased this aircraft? I am still on the fence about weather or not I want to purchase this aircraft. I am in the market for a GA aircraft with a nice virtual cockpit for FSX. I also want something that is more complex than the default FSX GA aircraft. Does anyone have any comments they would like to share about this Twin Comanche?

Bill I think I am leaning more and more toward your side of the fence. The only thing stopping me is my belt strap is caught on the fence post.

Got it..took it for a spin.Love it. Nice paints, Nice sounds (reminds me of the nice Cessna 310 aircraft from Dreamfleet sound), single engine performance is pretty good. The aircraft is fairly steady to fly...BTW, Is the real one this stable to fly too? The only thing I found was the twitching of the fuel gauge needle. When I was leaning the engines. BTW.. I saw an engine monitor gauge? I haven't played around with that... need to do it.The GPS that comes with this..not sure how good it is. So Can't comment.For $20 bucks (after the discount) this is a bargain and a must have/add to your fleet..especially if you like Normally aspirated twins.Manny

Thanks a lot to Ron, Bill, and everyone at Eaglesoft. This is a superb GA add-on. It's going to take me awhile to figure out the avionics but she's a sweet flyer. This really eases the pain of not having my Dreamfleet planes in FSX. With the coupon and all the included liveries, the Twin Comanche is a real bargain.Jim

I'm sure Owen and the rest of Team Eaglesoft appreciate the great feedback. These guys have busted their tails to provide the Twin Comanche for FS9 and now FSX and they each deserve every accolade that can be offered!:-)Like many of you we fly first and read docs later but there is a wealth of information provided via the installer placed Desktop Shortcut Icon to the PTCX Manuals!:-lol

For 20$ this is a great product. Unlike the C400 which I really liked but always crashed my FSX under VISTA this Piper has run very well.I have only had two issues and both of them seem to be solved by reverting back to the latest WHQL Nvidia driver. On my first IFR flight after 20 minutes the plane went transparent. Looking from the outside, or out the window from the inside, the exterior was transparent. The other problem was with the autopilot. The VS could be selected but no +/- fpm would indicate on the autopilot. I reverted back to the older Nvidia driver and so far all is well and neither problem has returned. Looking at night from the outside into the interior is very special. All of the inside guages are beautifully lit up and the exterior is gorgeous.Now, if I could only put the Avidyne's in this plane.Kudo's to Eaglesoft for a well done product.

Yes, Acceleration really added some strange gremlins. I had 169.04 but my FSX crashed with strange DXDIAG error reports. I use an 8800GTX and run 1920x1200. I was perpetually stuck with the mission dialog from the carrier landing no matter how I set up free flight. I went back redid the mission but the mission dialog was still there in free flight. I finally deleted the fsx.cfg and put the 163.69 drivers back on. I left the DX10 preview off and everything seems to be working correctly now. Time will tell but I think the Commanche will work out very well.

Another user reported something similar and he simply rebooted his machine after install and everything was golden from then on:-)Most all textures are in .dds format and should have no problems at all:-)

We could have put our Eaglesoft Avidyne Entegra avionics in this plane but feel it would have ruined the "retro feel".This one is a faithful rendition of Roy Wilbanks actual aircraft and Roy was very impressed with the fidelity right down to the night lighting colors :-)

RON,Does this aircraft have that "specular" mapping or whatever thats called..that reflects light when you have bloom? Yesterday, I was trying to get that on the VC ...but not sure if it was there..maybe the sun was too high and bump mapping.Manny

This is my new DEFAULT aircraft! I just cannot believe how FSX, SP1, SP2, and Acceleration MIXED with UTX, FEX, Cloud 9, FS Genesis, and FURTHER MIXED with this wonderful Comanche make for one of the most pleasureable experiences I've ever had in this hobby.Stanps. Sorry for that excruiatingly long sentence!
