The feature list on the website, and the manual pdf, doesn't go into any detail on the navigation system.  Does this support GPS/WAAS approaches, and have SIDS/STARS in their database?  I'm guessing not if it's not mentioned anywhere....

 

Yeah I hope someone can put in a GTN 750 :smile:

Well, can someone who actually has the plane tell us to what depth are the avonics modelled?

 

I don't really want to replace original, cusom made avionics that were designed specifically for Pilatus with generic GTN.

I do not have the plane.. lets hear what actual owners say..

First impression is not a good one. But to be fair ... I need to digest the manual.

Bert, I think the GTN 750 will fit well. If only I had the skills to make that happen!

Took a shot on adding the GTN750 - seems to work just fine.

 

 

Window02=GTN 750

 

 

/ ******************************************************************
[Window02]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=937,887
ident=14401
window_pos= 0.660, 0.160
window_size= 0.340, 0.580
zorder=99
gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750, 0,0,937,887,UNIT1.POP
 
 
 
in VC01 - 
 
add this:
gauge02=F1GTN!GTN750,  10,8,682,498,UNIT1.VC
 
be sure to comment out the existing gauge02
 
Always make a backup of your panel.cfg file BEFORE making changes.

Also try:

 

gauge02=F1GTN!GTN750VC,  10,8,682,498,UNIT1

 

and see which version you like better.

Interesting!  Didn't realize that that syntax removes the bezel. I like it. 

 

Now I like the a/c better. Using the AP, just setting the nav source to FMS uses the GTN.

 

Nice!

Good idea Vic.

Looks nicer w/o bezel.

 

While I wait for IRIS to fix the FP entry/waypoints/keyboard handling. Will add it to one of the textures.

 

Post Edit: adjusted it a bit, and removed radios.             gauge02=F1GTN!GTN750VC, 10,-94,682,600,UNIT1

Cannot assign the LSK's so I added a toggler to the top left of the GTN -- PM me.

             gauge17=RBE!GTN_14401, 10,8,48,48

 

We have to make sure it works with the PFD and audio panel.

Cheers.

Wouldn't they see that as a bit of an insult?  :)

If they're driven by pride, yes. If they're driven by opportunity, no.

 

There are many simmers who enjoy the F1 GTN, and will only fly GA aircraft / light jets, that allow integration of it.  So if such an option was available, I'm sure they'd see more sales.

 

The issue is one of realism - the GTN750 is not offered in the PC-24 in the real world, so whether they'd consider it too much of a concession to realism, is a factor.

Maybe that is why I did not get a response.. :wink:

How does it hand fly?

 

Greg

Only took one complete flight but I was impressed with the handling (or rather I was not disappointed). Response to more throttle/less throttle during approach did all the right things once I realized clicking the AP button on my CH yoke only turned off the yaw damper. Had to turn the AP off inside the virtual cockpit. Not sure if that's a bug.

 

Once I realized the $40 price was in Australian dollars I melted and bought from SimMarket. About $32US. So far no buyer's remorse. Better than V1.0 of the Phenom 300.

I just wish they had taken more care in modelling the 3D shapes of the yoke, panels, etc. Looks like someone slapped a flat picture of the yoke on the panel - no shape no shadowing etc. I see they have a way of changing textures, etc - hopefully one of those will be better looking.

 

Looks great externally and handles well - I just can't seem to get by the blah VC panel.
