It was released a while ago. Half a year? Judging from the VC screen shots, the VC is well below par in 2012...

People are spoiled by the VC's of PMDG, Flight1 Mustang, etc...

I have their CX 2.0 and its fine. With this jet its all about the avionics anyways... it has a Fully functional Universal UNS-1 FMS!

Which to me is worth the price of admission.

Well, as I mentioned on another thread, the ES CJ1+ 2.0 has been out quite a while, but there is not a single video for it out on YouTune, which I find strange. I did ask Ron on that thread if ES had any promotional vids of the CJ1+ 2.0 :smile:

Post #14 on this thread, Ron :wink: :-

I too wanted to check out the VC textures, in the hope there is a big improvement on the CJ1+ 1.0 that I have.

You'd be hard pushed to tell the difference. I'm afraid the world left Eaglesoft behind a long time ago in that respect.

To be fair the depth and fidelity of the systems in the Eaglesoft Citation is such that a high quality VC would make it all but unflyable but I do wish someone would come up with one which ticks all the boxes.

Question #1 Do you own the CJ1+2.0?
Question #2 Why state negatives without the positives of CJ1+2.0?

Stick, we have no idea why there are no videos of the CJ1+ 2.0.

I see no framerate hit in the CXv2. Haven't flown her much because I've been in the PMDG 747 and now their 737 and my brain cannot learn a new flight management computer yet.

I did. I bought version 1 way back when it was released and like most, was hoping version 2 would be better. It wasn't.
There was a positive element to my post, if you had read it properly without only looking for the negative.

But at the end of the day, and to answer the OP's question, I can't recommend it.

Hello
No frame rate hit here with the CXV2, very good performance considering the complexity of the systems.

Same here...there are many, many other FSX payware planes with a harder hit on framerate....the CX v2 is a lightweight compared to them.

I find that impossible to believe. The Citation X 2.0 takes advantage of threading to reduce the frame rate impact significantly. The only way it can have 'aweful' frame rates is if there's something wrong with your system or your system doesn't do threading worth beans.
