    Default Flightsim.com silent on Carenado's FSX port over to FS9 (the F33A).

    Why are you guys so silent on this outstanding release?

    We posted the grand news on July 6th. You need to go back a few pages on the News screen!

    Well, I decided that I would support Carenado and buy the F33 as I think that they are doing a great service to those of us who still fly FS9 and they need support for doing this. However, I didn't care too much for the Bonanza - just my own personal decision and not any criticism of their product - so I've now put in the hangar. I might get it out again one day - who knows?!

    Yeah - AVSIM is pretty quiet as well - the Carenado forum had nothing last I checked - not even a sub forum for this plane either... Maybe there aren't enough of us left to matter ??? I've been waiting for someone to critique the flight model before making a purchase...

    Actually, the fs9 forum over at Avsim has made a pretty big to do about the Bonanza. I bought it and really like it a lot more than the old one. I haven't encountered any problems yet. This plane was created in FSX first so I would assume that the glitches were already taken care of. I think it is a great but for $22.95. God knows I've wasted a lot more on other addons.

    Les, the guys over at www.AVSIM.com posted the news immediately about the release of the NEW Bonanza F33A model on their Home page, and a comment string started instantly below the announcement.

    (I) bought the airplane as soon as possible, and since there was only (1) screenshot posted on the www.Flightsim.com website (the only site I am currently posting images) I decided I would post a collection of screenshots, all taken on my initial flight in the new airplane. I did so, and (slightly embarrassed @ the huge file size... 537mb of original 1920x1200 pics) I cropped the entry down to only (66) resized/not edited screenshots!!! It was a staggering visual tribute to this amazingly detailed new aircraft model from Carenado, and my excitement shows it in the pictures.

    Strangely though, there doesn't seem to be much else going on... certainly not a lot of screenshots from others. Maybe I posted too many images myself, and soured some folks. I sure hope not - I was just so excited that Carenado had released another new airplane for FS2004 fans.

    I absolutely love this new F33A Bonanza. I think this airplane is outstanding, and a HUGE improvement over the aging, older Beech Bonanza model from FS2002/04. I think it looks amazing (100% true-to-scale looks), sounds awesome and flies like a "dream-on-rails"... but that is my opinion. Try it for yourself. I think you'll like what you find.

    ...maybe because we are flying this beauty and have not the time to talk about;-)

    Me too I bought this Bonanza and I am very happy with it. It looks much better than the old version and has a superb virtual cockpit. The only thing I miss is the 2D cockpit view.

    I just took care of that (no post in Carenado's 'unofficial' forum)...

    See avsim forum re. my comments.
    Posted to carenado my comments and they issued a new download to fix some problems (not all)
    great back engineering but not 100% successful.
    By the way, I prefer the carenado 206 sounds, similar engine.
