Despite that fact that you don't get any missions the plane is still decent fun to free fly around.

The good:

-The detail in the cockpit is very good. The instruments are very crisp and sharp as far as textures go. Much more so than in the stock aircraft that come with the game. The cockpit lighting is blue(for night flight), and it just looks great.

-The exterior of the plane looks great and is supperior in quality to the stock planes that come with the game. As in the model looks smoother polygon wise; and the paint job looks more sharp texture wise.

-The sound effects are great, never flown a Piper Arrow in real life, but I wouldn't be surprised if it sounds like it does in the game.

The bad:

-Though a lot of the cockpit is well detailed there are some things that are bad about it. Most of the knobs and dials on the radio are 2D, some of the surfaces near the bottom of the panel, as well as the floor area uses a low res texture it seems. These things are more noticable in game.

-The buttons and dials for the radio and instruments have problems when you try to interact with them using the mouse. It's hard to explain, but imagine having to click above the buttons in the cockpit to interact with them, not by clicking the button directly, it is really irritating.

Overall, its still a decent add on, but it is horribly overpriced. I bought this on sale for $12.50. Even if the negatives were ironed out this add on would still not be worth $25 or even $12.50. Personally I think this should cost around 5-8 dollars. Its a small piston driven plane, I mean how hard is it to develop? If this were are larger jet airliner, I'm sure that would take more work, but they seem to be churning out Over priced DLC for this game every week or so, why do they charge such high prices for this?

Also, the terrain in the screen shots are BS, the game will not look like that unless you buy the VFR scenery DLC, and not only does that only affect England, but they had the nerve cut that up into 4 different addons which cost $17 each in non sale.

What are they thinking with these prices?!?. really disappointing :(

MISSING FUNCTIONALITY, feels like a brick, no fun

I have over 150 hrs on FSX, I own several other aircraft and other mods such as the DA40.

  • Mixture and Prop controls are basically broken<\/b>, there's no change whatsoever until 0% on either one, so you have two settings, full and none - really quite annoying. It's a little better when in flight at maybe 3000-5000ft but not much, there's still a lot of room left in the motion but it's still pretty close to "all or nothing". Combine that with an EGT that's missing a readout and it's pretty difficult to lean for cruise.
    <\/li>
  • Horrible climb performance<\/b>. Arrow IV takeoff distance is supposed to be about 1,600 ft but I can't takeoff even at 3,000 with the stick full back. Arrow IV POH says Vr is at 65-75KIAS but I can barely get it off the ground at the end of a 4000ft runway at 80KIAS despite payloads and fuel weights adding up to not much better or worse than the 172 for example - I don't have this kind of take-off problem with other standard aircraft like the 172 or other addons like the DA40. This thing is supposed to have 20 extra HP on the 172 and yet it feels like it's missing about 100HP - again, I suspect the non-functionality of the mixture and prop controls is at least partly to blame here.<\/li><\/ul>
    Flying this thing is no fun for me at all. It feels about like flying a large rock - painful to get it to climb, painful to get it to descend and still see where I'm going. In the real world, the Arrow\/Archer series is really just a tweak of the Cherokee 180.

    If you want to actually enjoy yourself I can't recommend this addon. If you want something at a similar price that's actually fun, get the DA40 - it's a blast. The A2A Simulations Cherokee 180 is really pretty amazing, it's a bit expensive but if you are up for it, save a little extra and buy that instead.

    (Auto-mixture has no effect, enabled or disabled, nothing about the aircraft performance changes, which is again why I suspect this FDM to be either brokern or incomplete.). Normally I don't write reivews even though I should get into the habit like everyone else as it helps in the decision making process when buying, well anything these days online! I feel I must in this case and come to Carenados defence with these negative reviews. As an avid flightsimmer over the past 7 years and owning no less than 17 Carenado products, make that 18 now. I have a pretty robust idea of what Carenados products are like and I can say this is no less than a pretty descent product at $13.99 on sale. For those who don't know, Carenado is a payware aircraft company that produces general aviation products for flightsimulator and have recently stepped up into small jet aircraft like the Cessna Citation as well as small helicopters like the R66 Turbine. Carenado through the years has gotten fantastic at what they do, and make incredibly detailed aircraft now-a-days. This Piper PA-28-RT-201 Arrow IV has been on the market since at least 2009 from what I can tell based on reviews.

    So here's the skinny on the Carenado Piper 201 Arrow....

    -Flawless flight dynamics (behaves very well in the air and on the ground while taxing).
    -The model, while not the most incredibly detailed aircraft compared to their newest products, (bearing in mind that this was early on in fsx history) is still leaps and bounds beyond default fsx aircraft.
    -All the sensors work great, stall warnings, flap warnings, gear warnings all work like a real ga aircraft.
    -The dash is a bit dated (again bearing in mind it is early fsx), but still looks great and is detailed very well.
    -The buttons while clicking with a mouse are a bit off but if u click on the actual dial it pulls up that dial and the nobs turn bang on. (Remembering that these models are more designed to work with professional radio stacks and flight yokes than mouse clicking).
    -Yes this model does not have a 2d panel, but it is on the disclaimer on the website and to be honest most Carenado products don't, they are designed to be flown in cockpit for real GA enthusiast not for kids messing around. Carenados products require you to learn how to fly their products and are not intended to be casually flown, although once you learn to fly them you can casually fly around.
    -The sound files associated with this aircraft are superb as well.
    -Not every button on the radio stack is clickable but if you have a saitek radio stack or flight yoke it will work just fine.
    -The price for Carenado products range from about $19.00 to $40.00 and while I agree that being an older aircraft that the price is a bit steep without being on sale it is in line (actually average is $27.99), with the rest of their products.

    As for the comment about the scenery and other aircraft from previous reviews on here, remember this while flying about in FSX. This game is more than just a game, it's a hobby for alot of people and hobbies cost money. Some of FSX products can be quite steep in cost but when you pay for those products you are getting something that is as close to the real thing as possible (aircraft wise). It is quite complex to make a plane model fly, act, and behave like the real thing, modeling is quite complex therefore the price is steep in some cases when it all works right. As for the scenery? Even that is getting quite good and expensive as well.

    To conclude, it is a bit over priced for an older aircraft but I am sure it was a test bed for Carenado as this is their first venture on steam. Their newer products are absolutley fantastic and incredibly detailed and worth every penny. I look forward to many more of the payware companies to bring forth their products as it makes it much easier with the direct install to steam. I have also had no errors or issues with this aircraft for those who want to know.

    Happy flying!. I am flying FSX with the Oculus Rift - so my review will focus on this aircraft within the Inside-FSX environment. First impression - wow. Having been "real" flying older aircraft - I felt right at home. But after a few rounds I noticed annoying difficulties with the setting knobs (focus too narrow) that made it hard to get to the right numbers. The GPS on the right side panel is almost impossible to set (due to the viewing angle with the Rift) . It crashed my game on ILS approach and that, well, shouldn't happen. It has a nice night lighting and an inital wow effect. But it isn't good enough for Oculus Rift flying and it crashed. So I can't recommend it.. Normally I don't write reivews even though I should get into the habit like everyone else as it helps in the decision making process when buying, well anything these days online!

    What are they thinking with these prices?!?. Disclaimer: This module was actually released quite a few years ago, which explains a lot of my complaints. Still, it would be nice if Steam's description of it included that little bit of info.

    Picked this up while it was on sale for $12.49 USD. To be honest, I'm a little bit surprised at how mediocre a lot of the aircraft is. Most (if not all) dials are not aligned with their actual clickspots, texture quality is pretty bad on lots of the virtual cockpit (it also completely lacks a 2D cockpit if you prefer those), and the reference sheet and checklist seem to 404 error though they should be stored locally?

    Granted, there aren't many freeware PA28s that are decent quality, but this doesn't feel like something I'd expect to pay money for. This seems like an aircraft I'd download from SimHQ for FS2002, not something I'd ever pay $25 (the full price) for and use in FSX.

    Spend a little bit more and buy A2A's stuff instead.. This aircraft is lacking a 2D cockpit and feels incomplete...please update. Nice plane and you know it works with Steam. Not bad for the discounted price. Yeah there are better aircraft out there, but this is nice to add to your collection without paying a lot..
