  1. Wonder if there'll be a special "Take a beta to lunch" price or if you'll have to fork up full price to discover how far behind the power curve you're going to be. Hopefully at or prior to release, Laminar will be forthcoming on what is and isn't going to port from XP11.
  2. You have definitely exceeded requirements with this review. Getting this baby in motion sounds like a 'how to' video might be a wonderful addition to the package.
  3. Why do I get the impression that it's 'Austin's way or the highway'. They basically revealed what could have been done already to help XP11 but instead withheld to generate income through a new version. Good business strategy - I think not. In spite of all the little whistles and bells, the scenery will remain basically shoddy. Austin doesn't like photo scenery and that's that, so there's no attempt to blend it (a la Orbx). Trees and water look good but not enough to overlook the rest. Perhaps and island with trees and a lake in the middle of an ocean - like when you currently load an airport in a section of default you haven't yet added. May of '22 is still a way off so we can watch and wait.
  4. Nice comprehensive review - Thranda is on a roll. Bought it yesterday - happy to have saved seven bucks and it works perfectly right out of the box. Back in the seventies or eighties, one showed up in Anchorage but local pilots were mostly underwhelmed - it had a round engine and was way too pretty for a bush plane.
  5. Stephen - nicely curbed enthusiasm in this one. It appears Austin has decided to give MSFS a run for their money and we'll be the beneficiaries - and not a moment too soon. For some reason I get the impression you're not telling all you know but 'machts nichts' - at my age any suspense is enjoyable.
  6. Visually, it's a beauty but the lack of detailed how to instructions is a deterrent for me. When they amplify their manual, I'll take another look.
  7. Stephen - your last line reminded me of Robin Williams "baited breath - worm on tongue".
  8. A 'guarded' review so, as a member of the 'never buy the 'A' model of anything club, I'll watch with interest.
  9. It's a beauty - a jet with a niche of its own. Today's 54.99 GBP is 75.98 USD - an expensive niche.
  10. Current owners can also use Airfoillabs 'Product Manager" and update from there.
  11. Reminds me of the old saying "close but no cigar". The new price normal of forty bucks apparently means that just OK if fine but not for MY forty bucks.
  12. Another fair review. Spent several minutes in the right pilot position fighting the collective then it dawned -left side is where the action is, why have right side controls if they don't do anything important? I agree it could stand a bit more refinement but for $25 it's not a bad deal.
  13. Did it take MSFS to bring this to fruition or am I imagining things. Definitely a 'wait and see' event.
