Can't you guys take any "exceptional" models as they are and not make them a new standard?
If I was a payware developer, I would be utterly turned off by such comments as I would have to pour even more work into an aircraft without ever being able to raise prices to compensate for the extra effort in turn.
If they stepped up their game, id pay more for the product. No one said anything about carenado being "trapped" at their current price point.
For me it boils down to time. Ive only got so much time to sim, and lots of makers are now releaseiing top tier products. My time (and money) reward those who give me the most return.
