Flight 1 ATR-72

Well in April I was considering to buys the Flight 1 ATR-72. From the reviews, pictures, and videos I have see it looks awesome. now I really want a regional/commercial airplane to fly all the time. I own two other F1 products and they are great. I don't mind paying 35 USD as I will be paying a little over 50 for the Captainsim C-130. So what I am trying to say is that I really want the ATR. The F1 looks great and I really want it. What do you think. Should I get it? Or should I wait? Thanks.

I bought it a while ago to go along with FS passengers (you earn points which allow you to fly arcraft of certain weight/engines) so this fit for me.
It is a very nice plane, easy to fly with nice detail. It holds 64 people and cargo which is important for FS pass.
It is not as complex as many of the other payware, you can pretty much get in and go.

I have the F1 ATR and it's great. Very detailed, all the systems work, the FMS is amazing. If it's "simpler" it is because it's a turboprop ;P The VC is amazing, the textures, everything.

I'd say if you want a turboprop, that's the way to go.

Jared,

I purchase it yesterday morning. I was "hooked," very quickly. My advice?
Buy it.

I just got it yesterday. Very nice. Great sound and views, both 2D and 3D. Don't let folks overstate its simplicity. It can be complex if you want it to be. You have 3 options...cold and dark, ready to board, and ready to taxi. It has a good capacity and range and is quite versatile.

Enjoy.

What have you tried my friend? I rather like the cold and dark start.

Since I curently have jury duty, I haven't been able to explore the cold and dark option, etc. I have had to be content with short seat-of-the-pants flights betweem KPSP and KLAX.

It did. I didn't get selected, so now I can read the manual and fly. 😀

You folks have wetted my appetite. I have but one concern. Under System Requirements it states that: Low-end on-board sound chips are NOT recommended. I'm afraid that's all I have at the moment. Will that restrict my enjoyment greatly?? Does anyone else have only an on-board sound chip? If so, what's your impression - would you still recommend the ATR 72-500?

Any advice and feedback is appreciated.

Regard, Rick 🙂

My sound card is on-board, don't even know what kind or type. It's about a year and a half old. Works fine.

Mine is an onboard also. Works just fine.

Thanks for the assurance folks. I'm off to find that clawhammer and give my piggybank a workout.

Cheers, Rick
