Thread: NEW Carenado C-185 FDE update soon!

    NEW Carenado C-185 FDE update soon!

    Hi Folks,fficeffice" />>>
    >>
    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve made a completely new set of FDEs for the Carenado Cessna 185 (based on their excellent 206). Quite a few people, including real 185 pilots, have tested these and seem to be very happy with them.
    Thanx to Sky~6 and Glenn Davy (who has done all constant speed prop mods) for their encouraging input and work!
    Not only e.g. the take-off performance is now according to the book (you can use it on really short runways at MTOM) but at a forward C.G. (e.g. the default loadout) it’s possible to do ‘real’ brakestand take-offs. That means you can balance the plane with the elevator and the tail stays up during the take off run.
    I’ve sent the files to Carenado and most probably they are going to upload this patch soon on their website. If not it will be available here shortly

    Best regards

    I had a chance to fly your FDE changes last night, Bernt. Fantastic! The 185 is one of Carenado's best efforts in the looks department, and now it has flight dynamics to match. Anyone who's hooked on taildragger Cessnas needs this update.

    Yeah I just wish they would nail this down on release... lol... it seems like end users are always fixing their FDE's

    No doubt they make beautiful models, but they should be working on getting the fm's down argh

    Thanx for your kind words

    Bill, I didn't have a choice! You make absolutely fantastic airfields so we need planes that deserve to be flown in that kind of scenery (and which can actually use short runwaays )

    I'll bump this so I can suscribe myself as I'm very keen to get the updated FDE too!

    Any news on when it may appear?

    I hope you don't have to do the same for the other models when they are released :isadizzy:

    Which FDE fix?

    Carenado posted an (optional) FDE fix for the 185F on their site about four or five days ago. Is this a different update or the same one?

    Stan, the fix you mentioned is already a few weeks old and has been released before SP1. Carenado has received the latest files 2 days ago. They should be available within the next hours or days. AFAIK this will as well be an 'optional' fix.

    If it's the one up at Bushpounders site then the new viewpoint makes me feel a bit short and fat - other than that it's a joy!

    I've sent Don the newest files (just to make sure) incl the readme a few minutes ago, but you can see if you have the newest files by verifying these points:
    1) if your idle RPM is around 800 you're okay and you have all FDE updates
    2) If you can open the baggage door with shift e 3 then you have the latest version.

    Thank you. It's a no-go on the baggage door so I'll wait a bit longer :salute:

    I've been flyin, testin, take offs, landings, T & G's

    Just love the take offs now, just Brilliant...she wants to jump up now

    and I noticed on landing she slows down a bit more, both with troddle back, and flaps

    What a great job you guys did she is a Beauty and so much more fun to fly

    Thank you

    @Glenn Davy and Bernt Stolle

    Many thanks to for all your effort presenting us this great new flight dynamics for the Carenado C-185. Now this plane really makes fun to fly with.
    (I wished SibWing did the same for their Bird Dog)

    Greetings
