      you're kidding, right?...this thing is so bad I wouldn't even download it if it were free. Hard to believe they have the balls to ask $25 for that.

      I agree, FS5 had better looking planes!

      Sq321 I think you're missing the point here. Neither or them made claims of being better developers or being able to create a model for FSX. However, I would TOTALLY have to agree with them. This model looks HORRID. You would think that with the newer design programs being available and just newer technology period, HD Airplanes would have taken advantage of this. The fact that they didn't, or even if they have, you can clearly see it was to a minimal extent. This aircraft truly looks like freeware at best. Just as a comparison, pull up Carenado's Cessna 182T and put each aircraft side by side. I think anyone that does that will have an extremely hard time justifying spending any amount of cash on this plane. It almost seems as though HD Airplanes is trying to "pull a fast one over" for lack of a better term, anyone that decides to pay money for a freeware quality model. It's not that I'm right or wrong here, it's just my opinion!!

      "CAVEAT EMPTOR"..I agree with the honest negative comments here...For the most ,its a rip off..Money should equal quality..not so here...This model should be with drawn,re worked and then rolled out. Stuff like this gives Simming a bad name....

      beana5- I agree!!! I mean this is really insulting to every flight simmer's integrity to pay for something like this. This model should be pulled immediately! How can HD Airplanes say with honesty that even they, themselves, would spend money on this "failed attempt" at a payware aircraft. It's very poor judgment on their part, in my opinion, to do something like this.

      Having just bought Carenado's C206 & C208B, I find it incredible that anyone is actually trying to exchange this kind of rubbish for similar amounts of money.

      Caveat Emptor indeed - anybody unfortunate enough to actually buy this thing will no doubt have their work cut out trying to obtain a refund.
