    Huh, I was wondering about that V-tail. I love the look, but I figured it must have an impact on the aerodynamics -- both in the sim and in real life. (And perhaps there's a reason Piper stopped designing the Bonanza after the 1980's I believe.) So you notice some stability issues w/ the V35B?

    Edit; Carenado aircraft will give you a frame hit too, luckily they supply both the regular version and a Lite version in the same package.
    That's weird, because every time I've added a Carenado plane (I only have a few) there doesn't seem to pic an option between one over another. I know they make different/more detailed aircraft in their "HD series," but I haven't purchased those so far. Is that what you're referring to or is there something else I'm missing?

    Call me crazy, but I seriously doubt Piper ever designed a Bonanza...Beechcraft did. Comanche, check...Cherokee Arrow, check...Saratoga, check...all Pipers, but no Bonanza in the Piper lineup.

    Ooops! You're right. I actually knew that, but I've been flying a couple of Pipers on my sim all week and I guess it's been on my mind. Anyway, yeah, Beechcraft!
