News! - X-Plane11 Update : CT210M Centurion II by Carenado

 

Carenado has upgraded the excellent CT210M Centurion ll to X-Plane11. This aircraft has been one of my favorites over the years and I loved its turbo speed and modern style instrument panel from day one...  My original 2013 update review is here: Carenado CT210M Centurion II HD Series - Ver 2.0

Carenado's policy is that if you move to a new version of X-Plane which is from X-Plane10 to X-Plane11 the aircraft is then noted as a new product, so the new full cost for this version is now applicable. Many users bulk at this policy as they note "we have already bought this aircraft and this is just an update". Fair comment, but it isn't. Part of purchase is the time for the updates included and those finish with the end of the X-Plane10 run. So part of the purchase price is not only an upgrade to the X-Plane11 features and performance, but also for the service of updates throughout the X-Plane11 run. Hard on the hip pocket, then maybe. But remember this is a business as well and you are covered by a sort of warranty for the next three to four years of the product's life. And remember over those three to four years someone has to pay wages and simply survive in business and free updates for eight years will mean the developer simply going out of business though no income. This maybe not the X-Plane freebie economy but it is a business one, and if you like the product and the company then you have to support that. The main point is that in the future ALL developers will do the same policy, so your point is to make sure you buy the aircraft at the right time to get the maximum return out of your investment.

 

I really loved that lovely instrument panel on the CT210M...

The CT210M Centurion ll is certainly one of my all time favorites, and well worth the upgrade to the X-Plane11 version.
