Simon,

then just don’t buy it. Period. Nobody forces you to do so. No need to go on a crusade.

To the rest of the world:

I bought their C172 soundset and liked it. I have no doubt the DA20 set will be pleasing as well. Will it be “the real thing”? No idea, since I never flew tha DA20 in real life, nor any other plane except as self loading cargo *g*. As Jeremy said: It’s a game.

I can see Simon’s point but I think these sounds are better that the default for both models. I’ll be getting this. Maybe they’ll do a rotax version.

If you think a conventional flat-four, air-cooled aero engine with fuel injection and direct drive sounds like a four-cylinder water-cooled motor of half the capacity run on carbs, with a reduction gearbox to reduce prop speed, I have a nice little timeshare in the Algarve that you will be interested in purchasing… 😉 I have some Wright radial sounds that should be used for a Spitfire – yeah, right… and it doesn’t sound right from the external view either – far too `basso profundo`, and unless there are aircraft.cfg mods made to the DA Katana they can’t be fixed by… Read more »

You can’t please everyone all of the time. I plan on purchasing these sounds as no one seems to take the time to actually record the real planes like these guys do. I have both the DA20 from Aerosoft and Ws Simulations and the stock sounds are bad. These sounds make me wanna fly my DA20 again.

I too didn’t find anything “misleading” they simply said they’ll work for both. No big deal.

I too think this is going to be a great sound set. They simply say it’s for the C1 Diamond Eclipse but will also work on the other version. Who cares, it still sounds good. It’s a game people…play it. It’s certainly a big improvement over the stock sounds.
