New Asobo Cirrus SR22, what's the verdict?

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to start a thread to see what people think about this update.  Not sure if we have some real world Cirrus pilots around here but I for one am impressed.  The flight model and new interior is what got me. The heaviness of the nose (with so much weight compared to the rear of the plane) and the feel of takeoff/landings shows real effort was put into this one.  I believe Cirrus was involved with this update.  My only gripe is Asobo's continued trend of non-opening doors which says allot about how good this is.🍺

I loved the original Cirrus, likely my most often used default GA.  This one is a very nice improvement, being able to type things into the G1000 is much appreciated.

I like it a lot...aside from the billion textures haha.  I also picked up the Boris audioworks SR22 sound which I highly recommend.  I'm not sure if he has any turbo sounds though.

My other two wishlist items would be a 4 bladed prop and the cool opening doors.

The new SR22T was done at WT, so you can blame us for the doors. 🙂

It's not so bad, once had a car come back from the panel repair shop and they forgot to put the key lock in the passenger side door, completely body filling it over and painting over it...

Thanks for a great livery Ryan. You're Da Man 😀

Do you know if WT has included a guide ? If so, where would I find it?

But there is so much details in the 3D model, it’s remarkable. The cargo door both of the butterfly cockpit door and even the little engine hatch or the parachute handle everything is design as if it was meant to be open and admire but it doesn’t open😢. Hope it comes latter

Beside that I looove this plane really, since it came out in the SU14Beta I haven’t flown anything else, from the 3D model to the system and flight model everything is great. It fly accurate to the number and it feels right, the correct nose down attitude on final for exemple. Hand down the best default plane in MSFS to me!!!


I customized the flight_model.cfg though to make the nose wheel free castering as in real life and to give it nose UP pitch on the ground like you can see most SR22 having, I’m still fine tuning the suspension and might share it on flightsim.to when I’m happy with it

Not intending to be pedantic but it's not "Asobo" at all.  It's a 100% from-the-ground-up new model, textures, systems and sounds by Working Title.

Those last two words mean you can be confident that it's very high quality in all areas.  but yes, the doors not being openable is a strange one, given the otherwise universal high quality.

Perhaps MS specified "don't allow the doors to open, we might get sued if a simmer falls out!".

EDIT: D'you know what? Let's just ask Matt!  @MattNischan - why do the doors not open, sir? I'm 51 and getting into the plane via the air intake is playing havoc with my knees 😄

I had a great flight in this plane last night. It handles really well I thought, nice and smooth even when flying it from outside with the drone cam over some nice landscapes.

I just want to make sure, maybe I missed it. Does the new SR22 completely replace the original version. I tried the original one when the sim was just released but then moved on to larger turboprops and twins. I thought it would be treated as separate model. I want to give the new model a try again but I can only find one SR22 in my hanger.

If you've updated to SU14 what you are seeing in the hanger is the new model (delete those old repaints).  Flightsim.to should take the old repaints of the Cirrus down as to not confuse people later on.  All those old paints don't work with anything anymore.
