Verdict on Piper Cheyenne by D.A.?

Recommended Posts

Please comment on the Piper Cheyenne by Digital Aviation if you have it. I'm ready to "pull the trigger" on buying it, and I'm just not sure yet. Need some user advice!

It is a great plane.. Feels right, looks right, sounds right, inside and outside. The Trimble GPS is a strange unit... love it or hate it, I guess. The FSX version still has some bugs that are being worked on.If you had the FS9 version, the FSX version is pretty much identical, except for a working weather radar.If you like RXP gauges, the EADI fits nicely, see picture..http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/182541.jpg

To early to tell for me, the Trimble issue is a 'show stopper' for me right now. As soon as the patch is released, Ill have a better handle on any score I can give it. Right now it would be 'incomplete'. For me.

I'm just hoping they release the FS9 patch sometime soon. Hans says it's pretty much done, but it needs some testing. I mean, overall the plane is perfect and it's my favorite "high and fast" flying twin, but the GPS has a couple CTD issues that kinda make it useless for me. I know a lot of people hate the Trimble, but I think it's fine and enjoy something different, but when dialing in a page results in a CTD everytime, then it kinda kills the fun.

OK...bought it. Now to learn the idiosyncracies of the plane. The discount was nice (upgrade).Thanks for the input.

I love the FS9 DA Cheyenne but early on I quickly abandoned the almost unusable Trimble in favour of dual RXP Garmins. Will only consider the FSX version when a suitable replacement for the Trimble is available.Bruceb

Ever since I installed the Cheyenne, my planes have loaded at a real "snail's pace". Wonder what I could do about that? I've defragged and restarted but when I load any variation of the Cheyenne it takes forever. Others are loading very slowly as well. Once I'm loaded, I get relatively good performance, but something has definitely slowed down getting a plane on the tarmac.
