  1. This was the first plane I bought for MSFS, I did the first 1/3 of my world tour with it as I liked it a lot. The good: - 3D model & texturing is good as always with Carenado - visual "gimmicks" : ground power unit, openable cabin & cargo doors - once the elevator is tweaked (see below), it has a good flight model that feels realistic for a 182 (I'm not a real pilot though). The bad: - Some people don't like the engine noise, especially in external view. I don't fly external, and I find the engine noise fine, it doesn't sound that far from what I hear on Youtube for a TIO-540 engine. - The only avionics option is the G1000. - The elevator is too sensitive ; in the MSFS Options, I duplicated the default settings for my yoke and made a custom setup for this plane, with sensitivity turned way down, that fixes the problem 100%, I just have to remember switching options when switching planes. - The climbing performance is a bit too strong, expect at least 500fpm better performance than what the POH says. And beeing a Marketplace plane, no way to correct this. So it's a good plane, I had tens of hours of very pleasurable flights with it, I don't regret buying it at all. But would I buy it today, with a much bigger choice ? Probably not. I've gotten bored of glass avionics, and if I need to fly a GA plane at high altitude, I'll fly the JustFlight Turbo Arrow or the (modded) Trinidad TB-21GT instead. Also, I don't think I'll ever buy from the marketplace again. A lot of delay to get updates, and I need to be able to tweak my planes. 🙂
  2. The G1000 has been removed in a recent update, I think.
  3. They did ... 😵 Oh, I get it, I can reproduce it : I have selected gboz's text from your answer to him and hit the quote button, and the forum software picked your name. Oh well.
  4. It means the automatic gear extension system is switched off. The emergency gear extension + autoextension overriding switch is between the seats.
  5. It reminds me of this xkcd joke ...
  6. Oh yes, I should have posted it too, thank you (though the bulleted list seem to have suffered in the copy/paste 😉). Btw, I send a mail to LHC to know if they'd be interested to merge some of my mods back into the offical version, as it woud make everyone life's simpler, no answer yet.
  7. So Just Flight is fixing reported bugs, communicating about it ahead of release, and make their planes available outside of the MS marketplace ? If they're trying to lure me in as a customer .......... They're doing it right.
  8. Thanks for the reply. Are there issues with Asobo's management of icing? Yes, it's a bit "aggressive". Should I fly an Arrow (or any other GA plane this size and age with default equipment) in icing conditions ? Certainly not. But that's the point ... Having fear of ice is part of the fun. I flew SeedyL's Cannonball event last year (a MSFS New York -> Los Angeles endurance race) in winter in a C172, and flying around icing clouds (and at times, failing, and becoming half-blind for half an hour) was a big part of the challenge. Glad to hear you're still thinking of adding icing support, I will certainly keep an eye on your work. And folks, sorry for continuing the hijack of this thread about the Carenado version, I'll shut up now. 🙂
  9. I was eagerly waiting for the JustFlight Arrows, but if this is true, I'm out. Addon plane builders are free to add whatever feature or not they like to the base sim, but not supporting a basic feature of the sim that all default planes support is not acceptable. IMHO of course.
  10. Ooh I was doing thumb mouse button + wheel but your idea seems easier on the hand ... Thanks for the idea.
  11. Also, you can look for scenery/airports on a map, which is super useful.
  12. Oh dam n yes, Live Weather sure has its share of weird issues, like wildly inaccurate data at times, but when it works ... It's glorious. Except I had to turn it off ever since Thor has decided to settle down on Earth.
  13. Thanks to cararicooper for reposting my procedure, but there was a mistake in it, about the G1000 MFD Engine/System page. I initially wrote : when I should have written: The difference is the electrical information in the MFD, Engine & System pages. It won't work with the file from the "G36 Mod" as they've changed the electrical wiring in the plane; the sample G36 page from the "Workingtitle G1000 Mod" package will be a better match. If you've already followed the procedure, you can replace the file at the end, it will work without a problem. Haddock
  14. For nVidia cards, you will only find "Enable hardware enabled GPU" with a GTX10x0 generation or newer (RTX) cards. It can't be done on the GTX 9x0 and earlier cards. No idea about AMD cards.
