Stephen Posted May 16, 2014 Report Share Posted May 16, 2014 Aircraft Release : C172RG Cutlass II by Alabeo Alabeo have released the C172RG Cutlass II The 172RG is the retractable landing gear version of the Cessna 172 Series. It is also has over the standard version a variable pitch, constant-speed propeller and the more powerful Lycoming O-360-F1A6 engine of 180 horsepower (130 kW). The 172RG sold for about US$19,000 more than the standard 172 of the same year and produced an optimal cruise speed of 140 knots (260 km/h), compared to 122 knots (226 km/h) for the contemporary C172 - 160 horsepower (120 kW) version. Yet again Alabeo have produced a wonderful quality design, and the gap between Alabeo and Carenado is certainly narrowing. Even in price as the Cutless is $22.95 and it seems that the Alabeo's are now really a lower cost Carenado, as Carenado is now more into the larger aircraft market at sub $30 to $35 for its aircraft. The panel is beautifully designed but this C172RG is a basic trainer aircraft at its heart. The aircraft is well fitted out as well, and the detail really stands out. But this is still an Alabeo, so you won't get the absolute full functionality of the Carenado series, however the options are good.
