Which Payware Again?

Well I have been bring in some healthy paychecks every two weeks from my current job and right now since my only bill is my cell phone, I have some money. Most of it I am keeping aside for my flying lessons but I also still do like FS9. So what payware airplane do you think I should get. I do prefer GA airplanes and turboprops or pistons. Mainly piston singles but anything up to the size of a King air is alight. Here are the payware's that I have that fall into that category; Carenado C182RG, F1 C172, PC-12, DF Beech Baron, Aeroworx King Air. So are there any other good ones that I am missing out on?

Well hinch, that review still doesn't convince me to fly the F1 172 again. I think compared to competetors like Carenado, it doesn't stand a chance. I wish that they would make an update for her. Well now I think that I am going to go back to Carenado. Possibly their C206 or the Beech Mentor. Do you know how any of those ariplanes are?

I have both the Mentor and 206.While the 206 is the more versatile, the Mentor is by far, more fun to fly. Really smooth, great sound and views from the cockpit. If only it had an autopilot.

the f1 172 is a very sound product, very smooth and everything is pretty much perfect. not enough eye candy is my only gripe.

everything i've read about the mentor is great, but i wouldn;t buy it due to the amazing (and free) rick piper chipmunk. carenado to the best interiors by a mile though - their 206 is amazing inside, but it is too slow and clunky for me to fly. i don't actually have the full thing, just the model i repainted. i did kit it up enough to fly with a 206 air file, and the panel courtesy of fspassengers. i put in my own gauges, so my opinion on it is somewhat fact. i don't use it at all now.

i'm more of a fast cruise person. the dreamfleet bonanza is that, and everything i've read says 'wow'. i love the looks outside, but the vc isn;t my thing. the carenado has great interior textures, but the vc panel is a bit poo by the latest standards. (i don't own either, this is based on large pics).

the eaglesoft cirrus 22 is a bit of alright. it's fast and smooth with a great vc. i don't like cirrus aircraft, just something about them - but it's still a great product!

i'm desperately looking forward a good diamond star coming out, on that note though, aerosoft released the diamond da20 (katana). it's a motorglider; and they're awesome to fly. the aerosoft one is amazing they say...

i'm running out of ideas now. i shall return.

The Cirrus SR22 is a good plane, but I do understand your comments about the exterior model. It appears to lack detail and the default distance in the spot view is too great for a small plane.

However, the cockpit has got to be the greatest glass cockpit for a GA plane I've seen so far.

it's not the eaglesoft plane! i just don;t like the look of cirrus planes...i just don;t really fancy flying it.

odd i know.

Carenado 206- if you like Cessna's you love it.

Buy the full pack if you can, it comes with heaps of variations, and a loverly VC!

Well I have their C182Rg and I really liked it. their 206 does really look amazing so this Sunday or Monday I will have to pick her up. But I am only going to get the base pack though, not the full.

You might also try the DreamFleet Beechcraft Bonaza A36. This is my favorite plane to fly and I can find nothing wrong with it.

Good to hear it Jarred 😀

You can always upgrade with the expansion pack in the future if you need to 😉

Looking foward to the screenshots!
