About Me

  • About Me
    I was born in Norrköping in Sweden, in 1967. I work as a Dentist and I currently live near Northallerton in the North of England.
  1. agree. the potential for a nose wheel down first, if your landing pitch is wrong too, is also real to the real plane.
  2. i want P3D but i really like enjoying myself and being entertained, so i guess to be legal i better stay with fsx, where i promise not to learn anything! :lol: any way back on topic, i have about 6 hours in the Cherokee now and it just gets better. i love taking it on long distance trips (well, long distance for a Cherokee; maybe 300nm). i'm really angry because i'm an airliner flyer really, and this bloody plane is keeping me away from my dash 8 !!! :lol:
  3. just bought the plane an hour ago. it is exquisite..... really beautiful. in my opinion it's not just a "Cherokee version of their 172". I think it's an evolution of their 172 offering. The VC texturing is far superior to the 172 (which was already good but not class leading). The Cherokee is seriously one of the most realistic VCs you will ever see. It is stunning. Again, the sounds which in the 172 were already way above what most developers offer, are in a different league in the Cherokee. and although I'll go out on a limb and say that i don't actually enjoy flying their 172 much, the Cherokee feels divine. It is beautifully responsive, weighted and feels so 'right' on approach. (where i could never get their 172 to feel 'right'). this is a real special release for the hobby. whether you like GA or not, whether you think you want a trainer or not, you really must buy this - it's without doubt one of the highest quality aircraft ever released for flight sim. 5/5.
  4. this is my dilemma. as good as the 172 is, instead of FSX > P3D rebates, I wish I could get a trade in on my A2A 172 for the A2A Cherokee! because i know that when i get the PA28, the 172 will not get used. prefer low wing.
  5. I was going to wait a couple of weeks before getting the Cherokee - because I bought the C172 on day of release and had a number of problems (clickspots, brakes, etc - all now resolved). However, I am seeing no bug reports whatsoever for this Cherokee, which is amazing for a brand new software as complex as this (the maintenance etc). So I think I will snap, and buy today.
  6. The starting issues, referred to in the posts above yours were about the A2A C172, not the new Cherokee.
  7. You'd just get a repeat of Microsoft and their woes with the Flight Simulator series. A major corporate like Google with such wide interests would soon lose the appeal of a flight sim (especially when they discover the size of the market, and that the real money is is 3P content, not the base sim). The dream flight sim IMHO needs to come from a company that is truly absorbed and dedicated. Not another multi-national corp. Someone like Laminar (but XP10 just hasn't developed in a direction that suits us all - it's a divisive platform; like marmite, loved and hated in equal measure). The option that excites me most would be Outerra; an innovative developer that has built a potential core engine. Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc, etc - forget it; they want wide appeal, low risk investments and are shareholder focussed, not flight simmer focussed. Just my 2c. But then again, I'm a leftie Swede haha!
