Aircraft Review | Carenado Baron 58

We’re exited to offer you on behalf of our dedicated reviewer Bruce Knight, a well written and comprehensive review of the Carenado Beechcraft Baron 58 for X-Plane 11. Bruce traveled for his Baron 58 investigation to many places and one of this is Chicago. The result … amazing!

According to Bruce “The stability, ease in handling, the feeling of having a heavy aircraft under your control- even how it is unforgiving if landings are done without sufficient airspeed. While I was generating my “numbers” table in the test flight, I found them to be overall relatively close to the real thing.”

Bruce continues “The graphics and look of this model is amazing (even given the few small issues I found).  Great sound and good handling, along with effective lighting, to me all equals immersion, and this product is certainly that- I had a feeling of satisfaction after flying it, not frustration, which I often get if it doesn’t feel almost real.”

Aircraft Review | Carenado Cheyenne II

X-Plained.Com is pleased to inform you on behalf of Andy Clarke, our dedicated reviewer, that Andy checked out for you the Carenado Cheyenne II for X-Plane 11 aircraft. According to Andy “A high quality model which is realistic both inside and out with a large amount of modelled equipment and a comprehensive sound package. The developers provide a very useful on screen menu which enables the user to initiate changes to the model, livery and various settings without leaving the flight itself.”

And Andy continues “The modelling is carried out in detail and provides a very immersive experience. I think the model would benefit from the provision of a bespoke aircraft manual for the model to allow a user to use it to the full potential provided by the hard work of the developers.

The aircraft is fun to simply jump in and fly but does provide a progressively more challenging flight environment as more and more systems are employed correctly. An impressive model which can be a great platform from which to learn and experience twin engined flight whilst at the same time providing enjoyment and challenge for pilots of all levels.”

Aircraft Review | Airfoillabs King Air

Everybody knows the X-Plane developer Airfoillabs, right?
Airfoillabs had set new standards with their Cessna 172SP, but the King Air 350 goes even further. We from X-Plained are therefore pleased that our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke had a thorough look into the Airfoillabs A350.

One of the conclusions from Andy is “This is a very detailed model and can appear quite daunting given the number and complexity of the systems that are modelled. I was very impressed by the detail of the aircraft and it’s sound package. The exterior and interior modelling is completed to a high standard creating a very interesting and convincing environment. It is great to fly immediately and is stable but responsive.” but there’s more.

Andy continues “The systems are modelled very accurately and in great detail and will take a less experienced user some time to learn yet the aircraft can be flown successfully and enjoyably without using them, if that is what the user wants. What makes the package even more impressive is the extent to which the developers have worked to make the whole aircraft accessible and understandable to all levels of pilot.”

Aircraft Review | Saab 340 by Carenado

Although our dedicated and real PPL pilot Bruce Knight may life in the USA, his roots go back to NZ or New Zealand. That said, Bruce is pleased to offer you a in-depth review of the Carenado Saab 340.

According to Bruce “An aircraft such as this is very well suited to short regional routes that can be flown in less than an hour. The sound is excellent, as is the lighting and texturing, and the depth of the simulation I found to be very nice. The features in the model such as independent movement of seat reclining, tray tables and passenger lighting are very well done and equal to or better than anything else I have tried to date. All of this is surpassed only by the great customer support on the forum where questions are answered very promptly.”

But Bruce thinks that “there’s so much more to tell you all the ins and outs about this well-modeled and comprehensive with lots of details Saab 340 aircraft.” Want to read it all? Want to read Bruce comprehensive review? I’m quite sure you want and therefore, X-Plained is pleased to offer you his well written and in-depth Saab 340 review.

Aircraft Review | Cessna C310 L

Something new, something refreshing, something to think about or something … ah, whatever!

That said, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen decided on special request to check out the Digital Replica Cessna C310L. According to Angelique “we’re talking about a very old and perhaps even historical aircraft. Ok, not historical as the Douglas DC-3 or Convair models, not even famous as the Fokker F-28 or F-27, but around the year 1960 and before, it was a hot model, the Cessna C310L.”

Angelique continues “Wrapping it all together, keeping in mind the price, this Digital Replica aircraft model is nearly half the price from twin engine competitors which makes it a great choice to try out this Cessna C310L. and she can tell you that it was worth the time to check it out. Miguel from Digital Replica was very helpful in answering my questions and issues, which helped me a lot. That the Auto Pilot is custom-made is awesome for such a package price.”

Do you want to know all – ok, nearly all – about it? Then you should read, but keep in mind that it’s a very long review, this comprehensive Digital Replica C310L review. Enjoy and comments are welcome!
