Hello Flight Sim Community,
This thread will be the place to discuss the review below for the King Air eXtreme by Perfect Flight. I am re-directing the conversation from YouTube to this thread in case of some type of takedown notice.
1’st Post: This one
2’nd Post: E-mails from me/SIMULSHOP
3’rd Post: Support thread at SIMMARKET
4’th Post: E-mails from www.flightsim.com
NOTE: IF YOU PURCHASED THIS FROM THESE RETAILERS: SimMarket / Flightsim.com / PC Aviator / Simulshop, please start the return process by contacting them. If you have any resistance or trouble getting your full refund (not credit), please contact me in this thread and I will chase them for you.
I have varying promises from these vendors and a forthcoming review that your experience with them will guide. I will use this as leverage to ensure what they have promised me (your refunds) are followed through with.
If you did receive a return for instance (a number of you said that flightsim.com gave you a return immediately) let me know also so that I can point out those retailers who are being fair.
UPDATE 10/23/2020 6:30pm: flightsim has both removed the product (they said they have although still live, may be taking time to propegate) from their site and said they will issue refunds to anyone who purchased this. Simulshop has not responded after sending them the notice about hosting copyright material although I believe simulshop may be the developers storefront.
UPDATE 10/23/2020 5:45pm: flightsim has issued a refund without hassle and was pleasant to deal with. I’ve requested they remove the copyrighted material and offer customers refunds.
UPDATE 10/23/2020 9:15am: SIMMARKET issued a refund after the developer approved the refund. SIMMARKET was not willing to refund me without this permission being granted. -SimMarket 0/10
UPDATE 10/23/2020 8:20am: SIMMARKET removed this product from their site without addressing their customers. Still referring to the developer who is scamming people. Without the developer’s permission, no refund. Am I likely to receive a refund from a dev who is stealing already?
UPDATE 10/23/2020 8:00am:
Plot thickens, AVSIM just removed the post with nothing but the review link and a warning to users not to buy this:
NOTE FROM AVSIM: I’ve hidden your post with the embedded video. It’s clearly plagarised software which you aluded to so no further action. Please do not post any more like this.
UPDATES 10/23/2020 7:30am:
Developer has confirmed directly in two e-mails so far that these are only liveries and missions in response to asking SIMULSHOP and FLIGHTSIM.com what is in the package.
SIMMARKET will not address me directly as they have confirmed that this is an actual aircraft and that the description and placement in their Aircraft category is correct.
I have contacted Asobo in regards to speaking with legal about copyright infringement. I was careful to make screen recordings and collect and gather as much information as possible before I posted this video. Its why it wasn’t released earlier.
I would have liked to wait another few days to see where the cards fell with the online vendors of this product, but a post on Facebook that seemed to be a kid appealing to the dev that he got ripped off convinced me to post this right away.
