Thanks for the update. Sure would like to see some panel shots. I'm a little perplexed by the AH down in the lower left corner of the pilot's panel from the one screenie on your site that shows a wee bit of the panel. Is that a backup unit?

Looks good! Hope the flight/performance figures and stall characteristics are modelled correctly, if so this is for sure a purchase. Also hope that one can install the ReallyXP GPS 530 into the panel.CheersMartin

Yeah I second that...Just noticed the extra attitude indicator sitting there in the lower left. That's interesting, can't say I've ever flown anything with a secondary AI in it. A full panel shot would be pretty nice too. :)

Confirmed, the AH is a back up unit

Oh, we install those all the time now in higher end machines where I work. They are very common now.Thanks Bernt - sounds good.

Now here's something cool

. I know that's not what Carenado is doing (and I don't want them to - I like the version they are doing here), but this would be a really worthwhile conversion for the P210. I think eventually almost everything will be turbine equipped.

Hehe guess I'm just use to the older model Cessna and Pipers :(. It does makes sense to add that extra bit of redundancy, I could have used it a few times when I had a failed AI situation. Stupid question, I know, but would this mean that a secondary vacuum pump and electrical system is installed in case something goes awry?

Not a stupid question at all actually. No, the backup AH is electric only (not a pressure instrument) and runs off a battery. You have a limited amount of time on it, so the backup is really meant to get you to the ground. My buddy here who installs these says you get about 20 minutes out of one before it starts going south on you. Of course, for pitot-static systems, you have an alternate static source, but I don't think you have a second vacuum pump. Hope that helps.

Is it just my imagintaion or do the T210M VC shots show an RXP 530 with a 430 below it? Somehow they do not look like default MS ones, at least to me...

This might be useful once the 210 is released.
Cheers,Fritz
I see what they mean regarding the title, but it's a little misleading. "Hot starts" normally refers to the ITT redlining for too long a time and you have to initiate a shut down. Here they just mean that the engine has been running previously and it's not at ambient temp. Very good video - thanks Fritz.

Hard to tell, but if I were outfitting a T210 today for myself, this is exactly the package I would go with. Well done Carenado!!

Indeed, if Carendo allow easy installation of (dual?) RXP equipment ala The Duke then this will be a special T210 indeed. Have been waiting for this ac since fsx was released!

Sure looks like it to me! That would be great if Carenado finally made adding the RXP 530/430 similar to that of the Duke and Orbx Lancair :( CheersMartin

The 530 looks like the default MS GPS - though im not 100% sure about that, will be confirmed on release!

Not really - the default GPS500 does not have a radio built in..

Yeah, that is a Garmin 530 and 430 in the picture on their site of the VC, and I would suspect it's from Reality XP given that folks for a long time have been asking Carenado to make it easier to add this GPS, I sure hope so, that would be a great setup for the T210 for those who own the Reality XP GPS.Martin

Here are side by side comparison shots of the 210 centre panel (left) and the duke centre panel with 530/430 combo. Looks wise they are identical other than:- On the extreme top right of the 530 unit where the unit name is (red circle) there seems to be an ever so slight difference - some sort of icon/logo/label (?) on the 210 version not seen on the duke one.- The texture of the units seems a bit lighter (more weathered?) in the 210 shots - but this could just be lightingMy understanding is that the panel developer (as opposed to RXP themselves) would be responsible for the VC textures and 3D knobs so this could well explain the minor visual differences?Otherwise they are identical to the RXP units looks wise - buttons, white button decals, 3d knobs etc.Oh, and attached a shot of the default GPS500 just to show just how different the units are. Having said that there's that icon/logo/label before the unit name on the default one which seems to be what is on the T210 530 unit too?Subsequently I have noticed that Carenado included their own GPS430 in the B58 which is identical in looks to the RXP unit but clearly functionality is not the same. Perhaps that is what is going on here with the 530 unit?

Hope not I'm not buying anymore of there planes until they add rxp 3G masks to them. I'm am sick and tired of screwing around with Panel CFgs I've got the katana from aerospft and soon the f1 182 so I'll be busy with for a couple months. Bareback needs to do 3 things number 1 beta test longer and release a bugless (or close to) plane, add rxp integration like realair. And last but not least; work on there flight dynamics more. I know I sound picky but I can be with all the great products coming out soon

Flight dynamics on the 114 were already better as will be those for the 210. The 337 will set a new standard for Carenado flight dynamics.At least the bugs on Carenado planes can be fixed. The gapping holes in the Aerosoft Katana can't be fixed according to its designer. I like the Katana very much but these items are real showstoppers IMHO.

What holes?
If you place the viewpoint into a realistic position, which means to the left (the middle of the seat) and way forward (also approximately the middle), there's suddenly a real big gap between the fuselage and the canopy at the back because the fuselage shape and the canopy shape don't match at all.And a further gap becomes visible along the bottom of the canopy/fuselage joint. Not nice as a few accidents happened IRL due to the canopy not been latched properly.It's a showstopper if you can see the scenery going by where there shouldn't be any visible, LOL

So does that mean you didn't do the 210's dynamics? Maybe I'll just wait for the 337 then. Your work on the 310 was exceptional. To have that in a Carenado product will be truly awesome! The 337 has always been one of my favorites so it will be something extra to look forward to. :(
