I picked up the Carenado C208B Grand Caravan on the first day of the Flight sim pilot shops "12 days of Christmas sale" and since Carenado is having their own sale until Christmas eve I thought I would mention that I'm painting the C208B and will be uploading to the User Edits section along with the LHC Piper Pacer. (just in case that sways anyone's decision to pick it up) on day 1 the Carenados were on sell, day 2 it was CLS products and today they're featuring "performance enhancing utilities" at 40% off it might be worth while to check this link over the next 9 days. http://www.fspilotshop.com/12daysale.php

Anyway, some pictures of the Grand Caravan for anyone interested.

She's modeled slightly bigger than her default fsx sister ship

But as always with Carenado products, impeccable interior

and impeccable exterior as well!
Image

By default she loads with her cargo pod attached:

There's a few configeration panels for the eye candy that comes with the plane and one for "jettisoning" the pod ;) Personally I like the pod the plane looks kind of naked without it:

Hope you enjoyed!

just downloaded the fsx Saratogo and I've got no interior at all? Waiting for an answer from Carenada. I don't know why? There is no seats, instrument panel, etc. Beats me why?

Hi Bill,
There's a couple of things you could check on your end while you're waiting for a response from Carenado. Did you install it using Administrator privileges? If not, try reinstalling by right clicking the install .exe file and choosing Run as Administrator. (That's if you haven't already :)

Another thing may be your anti virus program is interfering, I know with mine (Avast)I have to right click executable's that have been downloaded from the internet and choose "properties" then right on the general tab it informs me that the file has been blocked because it came from the internet and there's an "unblock" button I can press. If I don't remember to do that the program installs screwed up.

It may be worth checking for something similar and try to re-install.

HTH
Gary

I removed and reinstalled sp1 and sp2 and all is well now? Beats the heck out of me, had to have been a problem there somewhere? Can't figure why I didn't seem to have any problems with anything else? Oh well.

Cheers Bill
