Two useful tips for the Citation II !

Recommended Posts

Carenado documentation being what it is (!), I thought these two tips may be useful ;-

 

1). Here is the location of the fuel cut-off switches, necessary for engine start, and cut-off;

2).  There is an incorrect tool-tip designation on the Citation.  The Altitude Selection indicator wrongly shows "Vertical Speed Selection".

 

This annunciator is definitely relating to Altitude Selection, not V/S.     Vertical Speed is set using the purple bug on the VSI;

Hope these help.

 

My initial impression of the CII is that I LOVE IT !!...... As soon as I heard the battery fans, I knew Carenado had notched things up a level.    Frame Rates are FANTASTIC on my modest system.  

 

If you can get over the "lite" FMC (which is just a mask of the default GPS), then I think this is the best retro biz-jet around at the moment.

I was lucky - I got directed to the link, straight after the payment went through, but I know a lot are still waiting for the link to be added to their account.    Hope you get it soon!

Thanks Craig.  At least I am not the only one.

I agree..I got over the FMC being 'lite' but I did notice the other positives and how close it is to the real thing.

My wish is that Carenado would read these forums.  If they offer GTN750 integration that it's a done deal for me.  Otherwise, they need to come up with a significant patch to address the issues some of you guys have been reporting, especially the EHSI letters overlapping and that kind of thing.

A lot to like about Carenado aircraft, apart from the flying on rails flight models, but seems to me they are more into producing new aircraft than patching and upgrading past ones. Too bad. Hope they sort this out. I'm on the fence until a patch is up.
