I only have a few aeroplanes that I fly in XP and MSFS. One of the first I bought for MSFS was Caranados Cessna 337 and it's been sitting in the hangar for a long time while I've been beacon bashing in the TBM and Citation. Took it out for a run to 'charge the batteries' and then took it from Nelson over to Karamea and back the next day.

First engine run in about five months

Sim can look pretty great at times

As a kid I hated these - they made the most obnoxious noise, and seemed to take forever to get out of the sound footprint!
But I had this in its FS9 incarnation and loved it.
Your sim does look good too.

Yep, big square tipped two bladed props, not really quiet. A buddy of mine has one up in Canada and he loves it, plenty of room he says and he can load it up with his family and go places. Cooling problems have mostly been sorted and parts are cheap.

The detail in the modelling is exceptional. Got to hand it to Carenado for that.
