Rated 3.5/5.0 based on 2 customer reviews
Over the years I've acquired many aircraft that I spent many more hours enjoying, at least a couple of those were created by Flysimware. I'm not saying that I have a bias to them as a team, just that I was well aware of them and the quality of their products before I came across this Cessna 441 Conquest II.
I wasn't necessarily in the market for a twin turboprop, but I will admit, I was intrigued by the fact that this is the first of its kind; I hadn't realized that up until this point, no one had accurately reproduced this sort of turboprop system due to limitations in the FSX software. I can't say for sure whether the same limitations exist within Prepar3D, as I don't own the software, although I've heard that they use very similar framework so I suppose it is feasible. Regardless, whatever intelligent work-around Flysimware came up with worked like a charm, and this thing flies like nothing else in my hangar.
I was pleased to see that Flysimware still put so much work into the model, considering how much under the hood stuff they had to do. The pictures above do a good job showcasing Conquest II, to some extent. You can get a general sense of the visual quality from the level of detail in the interior, the nice mood lighting on the cockpit and specular lights on the exterior, but there is so much more to it. From the carefully crafted 3D elements, the wide array of animations and the self-shadowing effects that add another level of depth to the interior - everything simply pulls together to make the aircraft feel, complete.
Maybe part of this feel, is created not only by the visual elements, but the various systems as well. There is so much here; you need only look at the list of features to get an understanding of how detailed it is. I found it incredibly easy to completely immerse myself into my flights, thanks to great visuals and really well tuned flight dynamics. I've had a lot of fun with it so far and I think I'll be flying this one for quite some time to come.

After the initial engine start up, the sound quality becomes terrible you can hardly hear the engines inside the cockpit and on the outside it's even quieter. The auto pilot heading and iOS GPS tracking in network fine but the altitude is not automatic from being sad, it is like the older Pipers where you have to wait till you get to an altitude and then press the button, which makes for some interesting approaches
