  1. Thank you for the information, Andrew. I am mostly driven by cost, only because I'd rather save it to spend on something more beneficial for me, than spend it on something disappointing. As for personal needs, I have about 6 A2A aircraft filling up my 'virtual hangar' because they seem to be the best at realism and beauty, so I'm pretty well stacked there... I'm only interested in the Mooney because it is the only modern M20 out there for FS, if you don't count the Carenado M20J, which is coming on at 10 years old this November... I only look for it as a fast, high altitude, cruising machine with good performance. It also has a pretty large and powerful engine at anywhere from 280 to 310 HP. I do not expect it to be as realistic as say: (for a comparison, the A2A Comanche.) I just expect it to look good and fly fast. Creeping up on 200 KTAS cruise speed is a pretty hefty feat, even for a Naturally Aspirated piston single. The service ceiling is nothing to scoff at either, at FL200, which the Comanche can barely even try to reach... As for sales, I understand that they are HEAVILY restrictive in terms of price drop amount and frequency, (especially with new releases). I'm just hoping the Christmas sale is far enough away that they (Alabeo) might think about discounting it. As for the systems, I could see there's an electric engine monitor and avionics worth a look. I also have the GTN 750, which is another reason to be interested in it for. Thanks, -Joe
  2. What's the verdict? I'm waiting for the next sale to pick it up as of now, but that's tentative, so only if I know that it's worth it, I'll shell out the cash!
