So I'm undecided just now if I want the titan or the chieftain from alabeo. I might end up not getting either but the thought is there :)

 

So what do people think which one is better? 

 

I love the wings of the chieftain but not so keen on the glass cockpit. I love the steam gauges in the titan but external model is not as nice imo.

 

Also, in terms of performance will the glass cockpit have more of a negative impact? 

 

I'm also thinking about using this for air hauler so further input here too is very much welcomed.

 

Cheers guys n' gals

I think its going to be the titan just because I'm not a fan of glass cockpits. I love the cockpit and the buttons etc of the chieftain, just a shame that it has a glass cockpit. 

 

Going to give it a blast I think :)

I have the Titan, I like it so much in P3D that I bought it again for Xplane......

 

I have started her up and taken off but not landed yet - interruptions got in the way. It will be perfect for a bit of air hauler action I think.

My AH Titan operates with cruise speed 163 / Fuel 31 Gal/Hr / Range 1840 nm

Ok I'll probably use this but tweak the range as I like short range flights. Might start this in the stream later tonight. 

 

Thanks mate I appreciate your help :)

Why would you need to tweak the range ?  This is the max range which AH uses to calculate max flight time, and is also related to Gal/Hr.

 

Max range (nm) divided by cruise speed (knots) = max flight time (Hrs)        Total fuel load (Gal ) divided by max flight time (Hrs) = fuel consumption per hour (Gal)

Because I like short range jobs and if I keep the range the same AH2 will generate jobs that are too long for my liking. I understand it all adds up and the plane can go further but I don't want lots of long range flights. 

I'll see how it goes I think.

Yeah I have done this and I have kept the original range - see what kind of jobs are generated. Did the type rating and a cargo job last night with the Titan, great stuff and quite easy to get a greaser in that plane :)

I keep the range down and usually end up with a load of jobs from 37nm to about 350nm, I can then chose depending on my time, which currently is very limited.... have to work hard to pay the mortgage but want more fly time......

Exactly the same reason why I wanted to reduce the range - in Air Hauler I found even when I set the slider to short trips or whatever, it would still be too long for my liking. So I used to set range like you and have smaller trips.

I am going to try the sliders in AH2 first and then if that is not great I will move the range.
