Flysimware aircraft 50% off at JustFlight

Hi Bjoern,

 

I don't have the Moo-2 - but the LJ has rapidly become an all time favorite - easily worth the price of Carenado's most expensive aircraft with far less frustration... She's just a hoot to fly and things work... If you pick her up - just shout - there are some mods you want...

 

The finished paint you helped me out with:

Flysimware's own store at http://www.flysimware.com/FLYSTORE_2015/en/ has 50% off, too.

 

Question is, do you want a jet or a turboprop? I own their C441 and MU-2B, because I wanted turboprops and prefer the C441 due to the well-arranged cockpit (or maybe I'm just more used to Cessna layouts).

Some more comparisons for the LJ35, MU-2B, C441 (and C402 as a regular piston) are in this recent thread: http://www.avsim.com/topic/499043-my-first-flysimware-product-perhaps/

Scott,

 

What mods? I have the Lear, and I'd love to know what I'm missing in the mod department.

Hi Stephan,

 

You may have them - make sure you have the latest model - 2.7 - as FSW has continually updated and improved the product... On the FSW page - in the paint library - there is a panel graphics update that really adds a lot of pop to the panel... Then here on AvSim in the FSW forum - ping Al ("ark") with your email address - he has a fix for the annunciator panel that fixes an erroneous windshield heat indicator - in addition he has an excellent set of LUA Scripts that will give you full button control over the autopilot and other essential commands - I couldn't go back to flying without them... The LUA Scripts require a paid version of FSUIPC to assign the functions to key presses - pretty simple to setup - the hardest part is finding unused key strokes to assign...

 

Hope this helps...

 

Regards,

Scott

Well, I'd go for the one that I won't have to mod. The Lear may have the performance but the Moo has the versatility (and character, to be honest).

 

So...

 

Is the entire panel state saved across FSX sessions?

Is there a bit of failure modeling (overtemp/overspeed)?

 

 

 

I like that they continuously update their models (even the older ones).

PC Aviator also has the sale.  Wait for 10% off Tuesday for greater savings.

Or add the loyalty coupon for $5 off, which is an extra 25% off the sale price....

Can you recommend some good paints?

Hi Carlos,

 

LOL - you mean other than my own ?

:Tounge:

 

There doesn't appear to be many - the FSW site has a repaint section most of which is mirrored here in the FL...

 

Hi Bjoern,

 

Remember states like A2A ? I don't think so...

 

Failure modes ? None that I'm aware of but I don't usually use them...

Scott

Lol, no, your own will be fne if that above is an example! Are they just in the library or where/how should I look for them?

 

Thanks!

HI Carlos,

 

I've only got two in the library - with a couple more in the oven... Just search for "Learjet" and sort by date - my additions are the most recent... I plan to start leaving unmarked versions so people can tag them whatever reg numbers they want...

 

Regards,

Scott

Hi Dave,

 

See the link posted above - they discuss many of the FSW products... We've seen a constant improvement in modeling and textures in their product line as FSW has progressed - the 402 was one of their earlier works - so it looks a little rougher around the edges than the more current stuff... I'm a huge fan of Cape Air and C402's - I've been waiting on a decent one for years - the FSW model looks a little too rough for me but that's just my opinion - I don't own it... If they did a V2 and made it on par with the Lear - I'd be all over it...

 

Regards,

Scott

Thanks Scott. I've got their Lear and MU2 and am happy with them. A good piston twin along the lines of Real Air's Duke would be nice.

 

Cheers,

What's the VAS usage for the Learjet? (Impact can be judged by the size of the texture folders loaded by the aircraft.)

Hi Dave,

 

My favorite light twin at this point is the MilViz C310 - it's a joy to fly...

 

Hi Bjoern,

 

The default texture folder is 124M - add another 16M or so for individual repaints... Much of the VAS usage can be attributed to the lighting dimmers in the cockpit - it has at least 4 levels on both the panel and floods - there is an option to eliminate the dimmers if VAS is an issue...

 

Ryan mentioned the VAS usage was good and considerably less than the Lear 25 model by Xtreme Prototypes - no first hand knowledge though... The FSW Lear runs well on my old I2700K @ 4.7Ghz...

 

Regards,

Scott

Sold.

 

Aaaaand the installer is already making me angry. Why on earth would you deny someone and installation into a temporary folder?! Gah!

Hi Scott,

 

The Milviz Cessna 310 is a great aircraft. I put 1500 hours on one in the rw doing forest fire suppression. On that job things were done to that aircraft that Cessna never envisioned. Every couple years the wings and tail were pulled off and checks for cracks etc were conducted. Sometimes down low it'd be so rough you couldn't even talk. Solid robust airplane when maintained properly. 285 hp Continentals were for the most part bullet proof. Ours had a VG kit that dropped the stall 10 knots. Handy to have. A little squirrelly when IFR without an autopilot (single pilot IFR without an autopilot is legal in Canada under certain conditions) but that squirrellyness made it wonderfully maneuverable on fire work. I've got a soft spot for the Milviz CC310. 

 

I did buy the C402. It's okay. That said it could stand being "refreshed" but the bottom line is it's a nice creation. 

 

Cheers,

 

Dave

Hi Bjoern,

 

Sorry for the frustration - don't go green on us - lol - hope you get it worked out...

:wink:

 

Hi Dave,

 

Hah - that's the problem with flying these great Sim Planes - makes you want to fly the real ones as well... The C310 seems like an almost "manageable" twin in today's market but the care/feeding of two mills would keep me up at night... Sounds like you've had quite the flying career and I bet you have the stories to prove it... I've got some stick time in a Duchess - but - that's about the extent of my twin experience...

 

Regards,

Scott
