Some F1 Beech 200 pics

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm sure I'm not able to fly this bird by the book yet, so if you find any errors - you can keep 'em ;-) The FDE on this Beech is unreal, I'm still in awe over it!!!!

 

Here are some shots I took........these are not in any particular order ;-)

 

 

 

Cheers,

Pete

I bought mine yesterday, but I haven't flown it.  Just spawned it on the ground at EGLL and CYVR to test performance.  Locked at 30 solid.  Never budged.  That's with UT2 at medium, OPUS and LINDA.

 

Lots of studying to do.  Don't know a thing about glass cockpits.  That's really why I bought this.  They advertised a fully functional VC.  The documentation is a little disappointing.  116 pages, and that includes 42 pages of checklists and performance charts.  Glass cockpit section is a little lite in the documentation and there is no tutorial.  Still looking forward to the learning experience.

Hi Dennis, 

 

I too knew absolutely nothing about flying a glass cockpit, but surprises of surprises, there are actually a couple of decent tutorials in the FSX training modules. Got me going well enough to participate in the 2013 Western Roundup, and I have become a "glass guy". What's that old saw? Once you go glass, you never go back?   :)

 

Per the original thread: this aircraft is phenomenally gorgeous!!! I have the Carenado B200 and have been a bit frustrated with its flight dynamics (and I am not even a pilot!), and look forward to a bake-off between it and this new incarnation. What a beauty. Just have to time the 60 bucks right!

Dennis, feel the same way. While I have no problems with the good ole Level-D, or PMDG's MD-11, NGX etc. I'm a bit intimidated by the G1000, as I usually do all my GA flights with steam gauges equipped airplanes.

 

Check out their forum, I believe they'll put out some tutorials, I've even seen someone over there mentioning videos.

 

Cheers,

Pete

What a beaut. The sim recreation beautifully compliments the real aircraft :)

 

 

Also sadly gotta stay away from it for now, just spent some money on other addons and plan to get ftx global soon so i'll have to see when i'll get any spare change to spend on this bird!  :lol:

Flight 1 did a fantastic job on this one,and yes a tutorial is coming according to "Yoda". The G1000 is a bit intimidating at first, but it doesn't take long to get use to it, and once you do you'll love it. Plus I'm amazed at how FPS friendly this setup is, much better than their Mustang which is also a great plane but was pretty FPS intense on my rig!

Go to Garmin website and look for documentation for the G1000. There are plenty out there.

 

There are many tutorials and books and videos too... Since F1 G1000 is the real deal, all real manuals and training materials works for this.

 

Edited to add:

 

Some of these are for different aircrafts...but the G1000 basically is the same for the most part

For some reason the King Air doesn't allow clicking on the VC switches on my system so I had to ask for a refund.  Bummer!

Great list.  Thanks very much.  Should  put me on the path to "expert" status.
