Just checking in....
Dean, thanks for the heads-up about Wilco's TBM850.
I googled reviews on both aircraft (ie Wilco & Carenado) - there were plenty of pro's & con's for each.
Although, it seemed many were more disappointed with Wilco's version for a number of reasons - and as I have had "some" experience with the poor quality of some of their releases in the distant past - therefore
I went with the Carenado TBM850 (and naturally, purchased via PC Aviator!).
I was just looking for a nice little aircraft to go "low & slow" for a change as I have always flown the medium to heavies.
Talk about slowing down a little to smell the roses (ie it's not about the destination, but the journey) - fantastic!
The scenery FTX Australia - I've been coasting around the east coast and loving it. Despite the fact that the TBM850 can really "fly" with some gusto - I've chosen to slow her down a bit and take in the scenery.
Mind you, for the most part - the Carenado TBM850 has most details I wanted in an aircraft in it's class - and the visuals are spectacular! From the cockpit to the exterior, it's superb.
The inner systems are good too - so I'm going to do some more extensive touring around FTX Australia for the weeks ahead.
After that, it'll be off to FTX Northern California - that should be good too.
I guess though, it won't be quite as good as MegaScenery CA (yes Dean, I've seen your screenshots!), but it'll do.
