Hi Guys, thought it might not be a bad idea to post about Christamas sales for our favourite flight sims in VR.

I'll start with the Carenado sale at Just Flight:

LINKY

Some real cheap bargains in there - I've helped myself to the King Air B200 and the AC 114 Commander. Be aware that all the X-Plane models on sale are for XP10 - not 11.

I also got an email from Captain Sim a short while ago, telling of their 12 year anniversary sale, on the 12th December, when all their products will be on sale for 12$. I'm hoping that will include their B757 v3, which I will snap up if it does. They are my fave 'big tin' devs (though I'm a GA/Business/Bush virtual pilot at heart). :)

Just a word on both these devs and VR - with FlyInside their VCs are absolutely fantastic. The older Carenado planes are okay, but tend to have 2D gauges - the later ones are really superb. Highly recommended - though I wish the Flight 1 B200 was on sale :(

    When you get their fantabulistical C-130, be sure to refer to my super-duper easy checklist for getting it started up. I used to have a video with it - in fact, I might just re-upload it to YT, though it was recorded from the Rift and is SBS 3D (as I was trying to see if it was possible to do a complete start-up in VR - which you can, but some things are better done on the 2D panel).

    Be warned - she can be very finicky when it gets to the actual engine starting process. Just operate the condition levers through their full travel and try again - eventually they will start. It's still got quite a bit of 2D in there, as it's an old updated FS9 model - but is my fave 4 engined cargo hauler. The one in the banner on that web page is my Air Hauler L100 :)

    PS - the sounds aren't up to snuff, though.
