Hello people,

This version of CL 215 must be on alpha state due do the work it needs to be done. The price is very high, the plane cannot be done yet?!

I bought these Addon for P3D4 and i can say it was amazing!
The plane was a pleasure to fly!

But this CL 215 for MSFS is not flyable...

- RPM issues as lot of people reported
- Magnettos and mixture with scrool are not very "user friendly" (HOLD LMB should be bette)
- Plane stalls at full throttle and mixture (even at 2000feet) without any VS
- RPM dicreasing during flight for no reason
- Joystick Throttle stopped working for this addon after last MSFS update

I hope that Roland Laborie will work on this because the work he did on other addons was really good!

Waiting for update soon :)

Bon courage !

While it is still a work in progress, it is great to see this plane in a modern sim.

It needs some major work but I think it has potential.

me conformo con una muy buena mejora de la escala porque se ve enorme en vr si eso lo mejorasen seria de 5 estrella

Lots of potential, but not quite there yet. The textures are ok. The flight model needs work and could do with more functionality in the cockpit.

It is shame to realize aircraft in alfa statement. It`s not flyable! The engines can not be lowered to idle, aircraft not stops on water, the cockpit looks huge - the scaling is wrong and many others bags. I hope it will be fixed soon.

Needs lots of adjustments.
Pilot seat view not centered, off to the right.
When power to idle RPM it shows 3500 RPM, it should be below 800 RPM. Because of that, it is impossible to slow down at proper speeds, while on the ground airplane as soon as you release the parking brake will start rolling immediately. Also due to this high RPM not following the power changes, it feels like there is no drag, even with full flaps and idle the airplane keeps on flying instead of slowing down.
Mixture controls do not cut off the engine or feather.
It has lots of potentials but its current state is not a good choice.
Hopefully, a fix will come out soon.

As all his previous planes the attention to detail is top notch.
Fun to fly and many functions to use during water collecting and dumping.
Few liveries but really a unique plane

Oh boy. Where to start.

The good:

- It looks like a CL-215. The outside model is decently detailed and accurate as far as my eye from working around these aircraft can see
- It flies like it has some momentum in control, as it should

The bad

- The sounds! Oh wow. The sounds are maybe not THE worst I've heard in MSFS but certainly in the bottom 2%. It sounds like two sickly Rotax engines recorded through a phone and then compressed.
- Scrolling magnetos automatically starts the engines without hitting the starter
- Flap indicator does not work
- Plane instantly starts rolling on the ground and has no momentum
- Prop RPM sits at around 4500 (!!!) at full power
- Prop controls do nothing in the upper range of power and only allow you to decrease RPM to realistic numbers (under 3000) below about 1/3 power
- Drag and overall performance inflight is disappointing. Full flaps + idle gives approximately a 300-500 fpm descent on approach.
- Very, very little friction when landing on water. It's difficult to get it below 40 knots. The slowest I could get it on the water with full flap and engines at idle was around 20-25 knots
- but once you DO get it slow, it porpoises in and out of the water, sometimes up to about 20 feet before slamming back down
- Wake effects are random and sporadic, but mostly not there
- At rest the plane sits almost out of the water. The bottom 2 feet of the keel is in whereas the tip floats are up in space
- Mixture controls do not cutoff the engine
- Did I mention the sounds? Man.....

I didn't test out any of the nav or firefighting equipment as I just don't see myself flying this thing. I've flown this exactly once and unless it gets a major patch, it won't even be kept in my Community folder.

I'd get a refund if I could. But take my sacrifice as your warning. This plane needs some SERIOUS work to be made viable, especially at this price.
