FYI -Aircraft is designed for SP2 only. (warning given on installation)I'm flying with SP1 only and don't want to wipe out some of my FS9aircraft..with a SP2 install. Will try with SP1 ..anyone else flying the Cheyenne with SP1 only?

Barry,I feel ya bro. Thing costs almost as much as FSX itself.And there are hints that the foreign developer community are seeing massively lower sales because their price points do not reflect what the (US) market is willing to pay.

According to FSXmissionguy, the bloody add-on is about 20 percent more expensive in Europe than in the USA. Seems like Uncle Sam's little nephews really don't have much to complain about.Be well!Jaap Verduijn.

EU residents have to pay VAT (20%), that's why.Do US residents not have to add tax-free imports to their tax declaration each year ? I heard that when ordering things from another state, where no sales tax is then paid, officially this needs to be put into their tax declaration. Wouldn't wonder if the same didn't apply to tax-free imports ?Siggy

Great stuff! A developer has found another new way to make FSX even more of a mess than it already was: Up until now, people were only having problems with SP2 breaking stuff that ran under RTM and SP1, and now the first addon is there that won't run without SP2!I've been surfing round the forums here in Germany, and Hans Hartman (the lead dev. at Digital Aviation) has catagoricaly stated that the Cheyenne will only run under SP2, which, er...stinks :-mad I was planning to buy the DA Cheyenne (I have the FS9 version, I could've taken advantage of the discount, shame), but if I have to install SP2 again, it's a no-go.In return for getting the DA Cheyenne, a whole lot of other things will be broken again: The F1 Cessna 441, the FSD Pilatus Porter, the MAAM DC-3, and a whole lot of other stuff too. Not to mention a few legacy (until SP2 that is) sceneries like Orcas, Strom and Sultan, to name but a few.As well as texture corruption when using the menu, and problems starting any turbo-engined aircraft at all etc., etc.Is one aircraft worth all that? I think not...What'as really pi**ing me off though is: WHY? I have other aircraft that run perfectly with SP1 or SP2 (F1 Pilatus PC-12, ESDG's Twinkie etc) If F1 and ESDG can code their stuff to run properly so that people have a choice, why the #*&! can't DA get their act together?I have the feeling that DA have shot themselves in the foot with this one, by limiting the users to the lucky ones that have no problems with SP2, and are prepared to do without a lot of nice addons that still work in FSX RTM or SP1.They have almost certainly severly limited their customer base with this faux pas.I can only hope that FSD's Cheyenne 400LS will be updated soon, I like it better than the Cheyenne III anyway :+ So, rant mode off, have a nice Christmas everybody :-)RegardsGrahame

I have a dual boot system, Vista for the FSX-SP2 and XP for the FSX-SP1, only have to chose on boot up where to go...otherwise everything will install twice, ASX, FEX, etc...no problems at all with registration keys on everything on each/both OS, FSX included.So I use Vista OS for things like the P51, this Cheyenne, and the XP OS for things that dont work well in SP2, sorta leading the double life, but heck....allen

I bought it this afternoon and took advantage of the prevous owner discount. (around $25US). I have one issue I cannot solve and hope the one other person who bought it today might be on the boards this evening. :) I cannot get the VOR-ILS/GPS rocker switch to rock. It is stuck in the VOR-ILS which prevents the plane from following the GPS flight plan. The DA website is down tonight (which really is the smart thing to do on Xmas eve). Thanks in advance. Bob..

Thanks in advance. >>Bob..There is a new instrument in the radio stack that tells the autopilot what to follow.... I'm still reading the manual, Mine did work later in flight but I cannot remember why... still trying to get in under control in that respect.I changed teh nav freq to the next VOR wpt, and then I was able to activate that switch to GPS but why and whatfore I dunno as my smart 4G computer decided I'd run out of memory soon thereafter at 2.3G of usage (??) This is for the Cheyenne 1A model...Yuppers, I'm back on board. I activated the flight plan in the littleTrimble 2000 as per manual, then set the nav1 to the first VOR and voila the GPS switch was switchable...why? dunno yet.allen
