    Sadly this otherwise beautiful model does not appear to show true dynamic reflections or lighting when used in prepar3d, i.e. only the generic environmental map is visible on the bare metal paints and the ground is not lit up by the landing lights.

     

    Also this is D18S and not D28S as per article title.

    It looks great but how about flight model and systems? Bugs? What are your impressions overall? Thanks

    Only had it 24 hours so this is just first impressions... 

    It pretty much exclusively uses default gauges and GPS so no bugs so far in case of systems. 

    Despite multi position interior light switches (overhead and main panel) which have tool tips showing position as a 25% increasing percentage panel lights are either on or off (look good though) - Bug or feature anyone's guess! If master panel light switch on overhead is off but light switches are on then panel lights are on. Not a biggie really.

    It's a pity Carenado skimped on the dynamic aspects I mentioned in my post above as either of these features are trivial to have working at model building stage. 

    Overall it's a plane you'd jump in and are ready to go straight away and do some sightseeing. Hand flying feels great (in my limited 1hr trial flight of a C172 experience!) and no regrets on my purchase. 

    Oh and it looks gorgeous inside and out 🙂

     

    Edit: actually it's a custom GNS530 GPS but not used it so much to comment on bugs.
