Citation X Upgraded

Recommended Posts

 

Not seen this mentioned yet but the Eaglesoft Citation just got a couple of upgrades released, new version is 3.08.

 

Fixes the Direct-to function, adds ASN/REX Weather Radar and uses Simconnect rather than the registered version of FSUIPC for FADEC (so now anyone who owns it gets FADEC).

 

I had a few issues with the upgrade caused by old data on my system, but got to say (especially since I have been critical of ES support in the distant past) that the issue was identified and sorted out. Very impressed to be honest!

So did I!

 

Not something I have ever regretted buying to be honest, unlike many other add ons....

Primary purpose of upgrade 3.07/3.08 was to improve performance and usability for existing owners but new owners will certainly enjoy the enhancements as well!

Glad the issue was sorted G. :wink:

FSUIPC was required for FADEC for some years, but like you, we've never regretted purchasing a utility that belongs in every simmers toolbox.

I must be a weird duck because I haven't missed it all these years...

 

Maybe I need to delve into it a bit more.

 

Anyway thanks to Eaglesoft for the update!

How is the Virtual Cockpit for this bird.  Is everything in 3D or are there many 2D stuff on the cockpit?

The website has VC pics. If interested, the purchase carries a 30 day, no questions asked refund policy... :wink:

for me, it's too little too late. It's so antiquated that it doesn't compare to current addons anymore. it deserves a complete redo.

As noted, this is an upgrade for existing CX2.0 owners, NOT a new product. CXV3.0 Will be the new product...

OK, I'm confused. The update is v3.08 but v3.0 will be a new product and hasn't been released yet. I'm off to the website to figure this out.

Hello i was just wondering out of the 2/3 planes in development which one is likely to be ready first?

Simple: CX2.0 has an free of cost upgrade designated 3.07/3.08. It is not a new product offering. Our forums are the spot for information. :http://www.eaglesoftdg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1450

Certainly does deserve a remake, but even so I haven't found any other bizjet I prefer...

Admittedly, I haven't either.  I was head over heels for the new XtremePrototypes Lear25D but the modelling is very new and the model hurts my fps quite bad!

The F1 mustang I didn't update to P3D because the G1000, while nice, hurts my fps

Carenado jets are pretty but their PL21's don't function very well (for online flight), and while the GTN mods are nice, they kill immersion.

 

So then I go to XP10 to fly the Challenger 300 (but it doesn't have navigraph support!)  LOL

 

So I'm back to this dated gem.  But I've found I rate avionics modelling highest when it comes to making a flightsim purchase.  Because the majority of my flight is online I like the latest navdata where possible.  After that flight modelling is important, and this jet hand flies beautifully!

Wow, I owned the V.1 of this years ago. Great to see it still holds its own in the systems and flight dynamic areas. Maybe I need to revisit!

Actually for it's age it is Still one of the best you can find, It has Always been my Go To when I'm looking to fly a Route using  Reliable Avionics and Nav Systems, you just can't beat it.  Granted the "Old" model using Fsuipc  was cumbersome to get

everything running but now with the newest 3.08 version released fixing the Ice warnings and the reversers you can't go wrong, I will be buying V3  when it comes out  but until then I will be Enjoying my usual Cirrus skimming at FL 470 at Mach .87

80 knots, V1, Rotate, 2992 on the Altimeter.

Hello Ron,

Where can I find the new update for the Citation X?  I don't see it on the website or forum.

 

Thank you,

Bob

You just download the wrapper file again from their main site and reinstall.  ***But first be sure to uninstall***

Bob, the forum link is right here: http://www.eaglesoftdg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1450

To obtain, simply redownload, unzip, run the uninstall followed by reinstall routine as Ryan mentions.

Thank you Ron. I appreciate your help. This is a great aircraft simulation.

All the time that I've had this sim, I never realized that when you say what what this aircraft is, you say "Citation Ten". I was always calling it "Citation EX". I was politely corrected by a real Citation Excel pilot...."You mean a Citation Ten"..."Ah, yea, isn't that what I said?"

You are welcome Bob. Here is more info for those who wish to know more about the product.


Citation X 750

Cessna pushed toward the Citation X program, which became the new 750 series.

The development of the Citation X was first announced at the National Business Aviation Association Convention in New Orleans in October 1990, with the first prototype making its maiden flight on December 21, 1993.

 

:wink:


Citation Ten+

In 2010, Cessna initiated a major update of the aircraft, initially dubbed the Citation Ten, which included upgraded AE3007C2 engines with new fans, Garmin G5000 flight displays with three 14-inch (36 cm) screens, and a heads-up display.

Hello one question, if I buy now the Cessna Citation X Extreme Version 2.0, the new version V3, will be a new product or there will be a upgrade v2 to v3 with an added cost.
Excuse my English is not my native language.

Best Regards,
Julio Rodriguez

Julio, the CX 750 Extreme 3.0 will be a new product at a new pricepoint. Existing CX 750 Extreme 2.0 owners will have an exclusive loyalty discount set aside for purchase of the new product.

From our perspective, that is a fair and reasonable approach for those who are loyal users. :hi:

I've found I rate avionics modelling highest when it comes to making a flightsim purchase. Because the majority of my flight is online I like the latest navdata where possible. After that flight modelling is important, and this jet hand flies beautifully!

 

I have the same priorities and I have found this aircraft addicting. Like flying a real plane, it seems like I learn something new about it on many flights.

 

I would just like to add that all the issues I had in this thread:

 

http://www.avsim.com/topic/490303-need-help-from-other-eaglesoft-citation-x-pilots/?hl=+citation

 

have been resolved with the latest updates. I have the one purchase installed in FSX boxed, P3Dv2, and P3dv3 on the same computer and it works fine in all three. The only issue I am having is I get an FSX crash when exiting the sim after using this plane. I suspect that it is due to something with my FSX install as this does not occur with both P3D versions and no one else has reported the issue.

 

Happy to be able to fly it again and with the added functionality. Really looking forward to the next version.

Ted, we thank you and Sir Stiggie for your assistance in reaching these most recent goals. Both of you have proven invaluable in the testing and reporting.

The sim community should offer you each a "pat on the back and a well done"

 

The team certainly thanks you :hi:
