Dusk Flight to John Wayne

Recommended Posts

Dusk flight from PSP to SNA on Pilot Edge

 

I've disabled AG because with SCA and this new XP Lear 25D I just can't have smooth fps.... so AG goes away.  Still looks pretty good.

I like it but there's a fps hit - check out my big thread in this forum (probably buried a few pages back now) it's got the words Review in the thread title

 

edit: I was on mobile here's my link

http://www.avsim.com/topic/493648-xtremeprototypes-classic-glj-25-se-review/page-1

Found it! And bought it! 

 

Now just waiting on an activation code. Ugh. The day off to fly and waiting two hours so far. :(

Did you get your activation code? 

 

Been 4 hours. Nothing. Emailed support 3 1/2 hours ago and no response. This kind of copy protection is so annoying! They took my money instantly... can't use their product. Bad start. :(

Hi Eddie,

 

I have not ordered yet. Other users had some delays. You should receive it soon. Patience is a virtual sim. :smile:

My Lear 24B is keeping me sane until this weekend. :smile:

And I got it! 

And retract my whining. It was my fault... stupid AOL was rejecting their emails. 

Now... let's get her installed!!

Nice screen shots. Wish Flight1 would have a sale on the GTN series. I've held back upgrading to FSX Steam or P3D because I lose RealityXP.

Lucky for you F1 is making new GNS 530W and 430W units:

They are basically the same thing as RXP units... same navdata etc etc  but they'll work in P3D

Oh wow that makes my day. Thanks! This changed my mind about FSX Steam or P3d, I am going to upgrade to P3D this weekend. Might as well go to the latest sim since I will be wiping and starting over.

Well I love it.

 

I was disappointed in the panel graphics, very blurry. Then I remembered changing some graphics settings earlier and forgot that Texture Max changes back to 1024. So, back to 4096 and it looks beautiful!

 

One issue I have with the autopilot: When you change the altitude selection it immediately dives to over -2000 FPM. Is there a tweak to make that more gentle? Or make it wait until you select the FPM like other planes? Not sure which is proper behavior for the real plane.

 

But, most importantly... I have "fixed" the 8 track. I mean, who listens to James Last? I replaced it with the first 8-track I owned. Boston's first album! Including the faded out, then back in, version of Hitch A Ride! I can't hear that song without hearing it start to fade at the guitar break. You old timers will know what I'm talking about.

Can you send me that mod - I love Boston

Dropbox a link to my PM otherwise I can pm you my email if you need

 

For the AP - yes I was thinking the same, and if you go to the aircraft.cfg and find:

[autopilot]
autopilot_available= 1
flight_director_available= 1
default_vertical_speed= 2500.0

Change default vertical speed to whatever you like.  You can even put 0 I believe.  I like 1000.

Yes! Thank you Ryan! 

 

I set mine to 0. Now I can pre-select the new altitude and when I am ready just set the bug on the VSI!

Have "smoking" blasting on the 8-track as you throttle up for take off.

You guys must have come in a the end of the 8 track era. For me it would be Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass....
