carenado phenom 300 with GTN 750

Recommended Posts

Hello All 

 

Reading many of the reviews on the newly released 300 and I too was surprised by the lack of work that was done on the autopilot system.  I'm in noway a real world pilot so I'm not sure if the AP in the real 300 sucks the same way?

 

Nonetheless; I'm wondering if one of the Wizkids on this forum is planning on retrofitting the GTN750 to the 300 VC.  Bert and another gentleman made mods for the 100 and the Hawker 850.  If anyone is planning on do the same for the 300, please let us know (I'm beggin' here....)

 

Thanks

Hi Bert, I know where you can get a case of beer :)

 

About the 750 install in the 300 someone on here has done it but I cannot remember the thread.

Bert, you don't even have to bet - the least I could do is send you a case of beer!

FYI,

 

Bert's GTN and autopilot mod makes this a whole new ball game.  Excellent work Bert!  Thank you!

How would I know... ask Carenado  :wink:

 

:smile:

Sorry for not making myself clear.

I meant, what is supposed to happen with VNAV, once implemented by Carenado, if one decides to embed the GTN.

Bert - you are a genius!  I like the 300 mod even more than the 850xp (I like flying the 300 a bit more)!  Beautifully done!

 

After buying the 300 I was starting to think to myself, "OK, they got me three times! 850xp, Phenom 100 and & 300 - all good planes but missing something to make them great! No more planes in your hanger until Aerosoft CRJ is released - enough is enough..."   You changed that sentiment with your mods - I am very thankful!  

 

I just can't believe Carenado hasn't put you on their payroll yet (Flight1 should too)!!!

They certainly keep me busy...

 

Just noticed that they fixed the VSI scale in the PFD for SP1.2.

 

It now goes to + - 4000 ft/min, as it should..

 

Unfortunately, my mod still uses the SP1.1. PFD version... so I'll have to update the PFD to match.   :wink:

OK, for those that want this fixed.. two things to do.

 

1.  Make sure you have the newer pfd_vsi_scale.bmp file

As part of SP1.2. a new bmp file is provided (in the EMB505_G1000.cab file)

It is dated 27/08/2015 and displays with -4 -2 2 4 markers.

This goes into your (GTN) EMB505_G1000 folder.

 

2.  Open the G1000_PFDEMBP300V3VC.xml file (in the same folder) with Notepad.

Search for  <Element id="Vertical Speed">

From there search for "Shift"

 

There are two Shift sections, both with 2000 in them...

 

First one (under "Label") becomes:

 

<Shift id="Shift">
              <Scale>0.000,-0.035</Scale>
              <Expression id="Expression">
                <Minimum>-4090.000</Minimum>
                <Maximum>4100.000</Maximum>

                <Script>@VS</Script>
              </Expression>
            </Shift>

 

Second one  (under "Selected VS Bug") becomes:

 

<Shift id="Shift">
              <Scale>0.000,-0.035</Scale>
              <Expression id="Expression">
                <Minimum>-4500.000</Minimum>
                <Maximum>4500.000</Maximum>

                <Script>(A:AUTOPILOT VERTICAL HOLD VAR, feet per minute)</Script>
              </Expression>
            </Shift>

 

Save and go fly..

 

If you want to change the PFD popup as well, repeat the edits for the

G1000_PFDEMBP300V3.xml file.

Hi Bert,

 

I see you're referencing v1.2 with these mods. Haven't bought the Phenom 300 yet but I see v1.3 on their website and I'm waiting to buy from PC Aviator.

 

Are these mods necessary for the current v1.3?

 

TIA.

Yeah, I second that.  Does Carenado's work well now with v1.3 ?  If not is there an updated MOD ?

I just bought v1.3 plus nav extenstion days ago, having problems with the AP and VNAV. The airplane just shoot over speed and ALT i dialed in when just using FD & AP mode. And in VNAV mode, the plane couldn't follow the ALT i set in the fms. Basically it is still a 60 bucks public beta v1.3

Hate to tell you this, but you're misunderstanding how these functions work. They're not Set & Forget functions. Read through the thread about the autopilot, and there are detailed directions as to how to operate it, and make it do whatever you need.

Can anyone help get the 750 installed correctly in the Phenom 300? I tried using the same procedure for the Phenom 100 GTN 750 install but something isn't right and I lose the interior walls of the cockpit. Thanks for any help in advance.
