Private Jets Suggestions

Recommended Posts

ERJ-145 by Feelthere is the airline version, not the business jet version, but it is probably almost the same in the cockpit.  I think it compares well with some of the business jets.

Seems like a bit of a no brainer to make a business jet version.  I've never looked at the Feelthere E-jets.  How are they?

 

In terms of other jets, the only one that I've been able to get good experience out of is the Flight1 Mustang.  I do have some hope for the ES 3.0 models that are in progress.

Greg, the ERJ 135-145 are very good (for their time) with a good avionics suite, I fly these a lot

The Ejets 170-190 ect have interesting systems but horrible VC textures and have been long deleted.

The great thing with Feelthere was that they were one of the few Devs that provided great Goflight compatability.

Once you sort out the overly reflective VC window reflections their Phenom 100 is also nice to fly, light years ahead of the Carenado effort as far as the systems go (i.e it actually has some)

No gauge backlight option in the vc for feelthere though right?

 

On the ERJ no, well it does have back lighting but unfortunately the whole panel is also lit, the FS9 version was far better in this respect.

The Ejets I cannot remember, they were not on my system long enough to check to be honest.

Eaglesoft Citation X is hands-down the best bizjet IMHO.  The VC is somewhat dated but the systems and FMC are excellent.  Plus, flying at 0.9M at FL450 gets you there faster than the others.

Yeah, it's nice.  I just couldn't make it work with my hardware at all.  So, if you don't mind mouseclicking it's, to me, a good choice.  Flies very nice.

IMHO the best bizjet by a clear mile is the Flight 1 Cessna Mustang.

 

G1000 rather than FMC, but it's the best G1000 rendition you'll find (at 'entertainment' prices).

 

Rock solid; beautiful VC (even despite the age), and very convincing, pleasant hand flying dynamics.

 

Although it's still getting patched up and is dependent on user mods at the moment, I'd put the Carenado Citation II next;  it's what I'm flying more than anything at present - can't stay away from it, despite it's flaws.

Greg, It works very well with FSuipc mouse macros, every VC button and dial is able to be mapped.

The Keymapping provided in the Citations ini file also works but I never bothered with it once I mapped all my Goflight stuff using FSuipc.

That was what puzzled me.  I'd heard some people got it to work but I never got one single mouse macro to work on this plane.  Even contacted Pete Dowson to get his help but he said that the messages coming back weren't map-able.  So, I gave up.

I don't have any add-ons that use them so I can't say.  I got a refund...waiting for their 3.0 products at this point.

Addons will only use them if you program them and the gauges are written in C/C++

Have a try with another addon, it could be something unique to your setup.

Worth trying because they are a great help with external hardware when an addon does not work natively with your hardware (like 90% of stuff with my Goflight gear)

Absolutely.    Thank god (and Pete Dowson!) for FSUIPC Mouse Macros - without them, I'd be mouse clicking all over the MJC Q400, whereas with mouse marcos, I have every main function mapped to key commands.

 

Same with the QW Avros.

In the responses I saw a few for the Citation by EagleSoft...

 

What about the Carenado Citation II S550 I've heard the initial release had issues but there was a quick fix put out, but really haven't heard much about post patch.
