V4 when you click the front of the throttle (plate) turns the pilots on/off.

awesome thanks.  What about the chocks and covers?

nevermind I figured it out.  It is the copilot yoke plate.

I actually created my own sounds for the aircraft.  Not sure that I could release it though.  The ones that come with it now are significantly improved over the previous version.

Anyone finished a full flight ... short review on the flight and aircraft systems?

I'd suggest reading the big manual. Lot of system modeling. Lot's of switches.  I've also downloaded the actual Lear model 25 manual and the systems are pretty nicely paralleled. One peculiarity is that the dual emergency battery system is really taking the place of an APU in the jet which there was no APU. Therefore, when prepping the cockpit if you turn the  batteries on the 'APU' will disengage. Could have a battery drain so you're forced to keep the 'APU' on with no batteries until you're ready to start the engines and generators. I saw no GPU modeled so I don't know why this was done. Just should have modeled a GPU.

 

I did a flight and it flys by hand very well. Had to get used to the vertical climb, thrust, etc. so I'm still learning this bird. The GTN750 though is a nice addition and easy to install as noted in the beginning of this thread. It captured the LOC without a problem for a nice VLOC approach.

Given the huge amount of animations in the cockpit I was surprised there are no animations in the cabin with the shades and tables for example. Although the textures are very nice.

 

The lighting is peculiar as well. When you turn the taxi or landing lights on your whole cockpit lights up. Don't know what the deal is here.

But I'm still trying a couple of cold and dark starts just to get the hang of the systems. Sounds are great. Anybody looking for biz jet this should be high on your list.

 I did the Flight1 GTN-650/750 mod and I can bring up the 650/750 using the 'GTN Stack' menu and they function but they aren't in the panel.  I missed a step somewhere.  Any advise appreciated.  :biggrin:

Did you press the ' select optional panel' button just below the APPR button on the front panel? It's just on top where the avionics should be.

LOL... I have exactly the same issue and thought I went grazy.
Was 110% sure I had made the change in the panel.cfg but no GNS in the VC.
Now it appears I have to press a magic button :biggrin:

Thanks for the additional information also.

I am reading the 200 page manual.

My main question was.. how does it fly on a full flight and do all the systems work properly?

"The lighting is peculiar as well. When you turn the taxi or landing lights on your whole cockpit lights up. Don't know what the deal is here."

I wonder about that also.

 

Good FPS ?

Any problems .. e.g., freezing ., CTD .. other problems in FSX or P3Dv4?

Why no I didn't.  :biggrin:  I thought that I had seen some mention of what turns out to be that button but I couldn't find the comment later.  Thanks Lenny.  I can quit scratching my head now.  I don't have enough hair left to pull any out.  :laugh:

If you are concerned about the optimize parts mod to the P3DV4 cfg, you can download and install the 2.1 FSX version into P3DV4. There is even an updated sound gauge on the website for 64 bit. I have done this and the Lear appears to work completely, including all switches and sounds. I think it handles much better than the 2.0 version.

I had read about the various issues and mods and being able to use the FSX version.  I did the mods and now that I know where the ' select optional panel' button is, all is well.  :biggrin:  All the cockpit functions are there and the GTN 650/750 mod works also.  Thanks for the input.

Yes I flew a complete route EGPD to ENBR. At night EGPD with with 8xSS and dynamic lighting brought my fps close to single digits around 10-12 fps in cockpit. So I switched to 8xMS and I immediately got a 100% increase in fps. 22-26. But this is kind of standard fair in most well textured cockpits. Now the issues I ran into was the AP simply disconnecting on a couple of occasions for variable reasons. Needless to say if I hadn't been babysitting it the plane would have done a nose dive to oblivion. Not sure what the issue is here. I've been through all the manual and as the review on this site noted it would have been nice to have a sample flight showing how the pitch command wheel functions in combination with the speed button etc. 

 

Also, the NAV/LOC  disconnected a few times again for reasons I'm not sure.  As I stated will need more time flying to get a proper flight without these occasional hiccups.

Good idea to have the 650 there because I just have the 750 (didn't buy the 650 combo) and now there's a blank metal plate underneath the 750. I could change the size of the 750 but  I wonder if anyone knows of a good weather radar mod. That default one in the panel is fake of course.

It's been my Lear of choice on IFR flights in V3 and V4. I've had no issues at all with it once I got used to it. I never had an AP disconnect in any flight. 

Good looking and easy on the fps on my system.

Do you see the same thing?

Just had another flight. No problem with the AP or NAV/LOC but the 750 couldn't get past the first page and was frozen. I used the autoHdg mode on Flightsim Commander with the flightplan in there and went pretty well.

Has anyone got the panel config settings for adding the GTN 750 and 650? I have the 750 in panel and it is a bit long and there is enough room below it for the 650 if I shorten the 750 a bit.

Is the F1 GTN 750 supposed to rely on and work with the FlightSim Commander's (GPS mode) autopilot steering / waypoint sequencing?
