I have six of their aircraft and do enjoy flying them, they look good, fly by the numbers, have great cockpit lighting and Carenado/Abaleo have enough of a selection to meet everyone's needs.
What I have gleaned from the great folks here over time is that,
1. Carenado/Alabeo aircraft are getting too expensive for what you get and buying them on sale is your best buy unless you are a want/need it now simmer and aren't strapped.
2. Although Carenado provide fixes they are limited to quick fixes and any lasting faults will not be taken care of.
3. Their high end textures will sometimes cause a prohibitive drop in fps in mid-range computers.
4. The only good thing in the "Unofficial Support" forum is the couple of guys that provide fixes that Carenado never get around to.
5. If you have a problem with any developers aircraft you should talk to others because it might be Your problem and not Theirs.
5. Even above average simmers like to take a spin in a new shiny aircraft if they can get a good deal.
I'm a big fan of A2A because they fit my simming needs for higher end simulations of aircraft, constantly update their products and have great support. They put all of that together for the average price of fifty bucks and that's why I think Carenado/Alabeo are too expensive right now.(A point reviewers can't take into consideration to be fair and impartial)
Yet with all of that said I do enjoy just hopping into a decent and diverse aircraft to take a spin just for fun and that's where these mid-level sim aircraft come in, so if you asked this A2A sim snob if I would purchase a Careado/Alebeo aircraft in the future it would be a resounding yes but only when they are on sale for less than thirty bucks. I have enough aircraft in my hangar to keep me busy and am willing to wait for the price to drop. My
It has been correctly pointed out that I'm an idiot so feel free to correct.
