News! - Released - DA42 Twin Star (G1000) by Alabeo

This DA42 - Twin Star is another G1000 GPS twin-screen aircraft to be released in quick succession from Alabeo. This aircraft is also an interesting release because the Carenado G1000 system has had a bit of an upgrade and it feels far more responsive in not only loading in the data far more quickly, but it is far more efficient in flight and for usability.

This is a very nice light-twin aircraft that makes a great twin-engine trainer for your flight learning needs. The usual Carenado/Alabeo quality is also very much in vogue and so is the construction quality. Modern, light and powerful...  what more do you want.

Do owners of the previous version have to purchase this new and improved version? Or is there an update to the new features?

This is a first release of the Diamond DA-42 for Alabeo, I think you are mixing it up with Aerobask's DA-42? SD

This is the review that is linked for the Org store for this plane....but it's not much of a review. I get the feeling there is another review somewhere and that is just an update.

Nope, it is not a review but a news release...  The G1000 system by Alabeo has been just now updated to v3, so we are waiting for the update to be completed for the review. SD

Great plane...beautiful...

I am using XP 11

and the plane will not fly a flight plan...

Am working with Alabeo on a fix....a popular

on-line fix does not seem to work...failure 

of plane to fly flight plan is a bummer for me...

The DA 40, which I also purchased, will fly

a flight plan...
