Enjoyable!  How do you like that Carenado model?  I've always thought about getting that CJ2

Hi Ryan,

The CJ2 is a beautiful model - that flies well (straight wing Cessna fan) - however - my same old complaint - the FMC is incapable of doing an "Direct To" - which precludes it from any real use... The team put together the GTN mod for it - which fixes many issues and is a superb community effort - inside the confines that not being the developer include... IMHO - stick to your Lear's and wait for Eaglesoft or MilViz or FSW Falcon...

Regards,
Scott

Thanks very much for commenting....Like it great power and climb...don't like the location heading control on the console but on a real plane thats ideal!

Appreciate the comment    PMC working fine....program direct to and add intersection legs....the FMC may be selective on how legs can be made!

Ahhh figures!  Oh well still nice shots HL!

Many thanks for commenting....there may be airports and navigation points that don't exist anymore so won't program in the FMC!

Yes they are.  I am a happy camper today, I resolved my Xplane problems by doing a rebuild on my scenery.  I think they might have happened because I did a rename on my scenery folder, that might have messed things up somehow because I remember that file manager crashed in that session (it does not like the five billion files used for photo textures, LOL).  I like the way P3D does phototextures because they are rendered out of the bgl's rather than as .dds files, like Xplane.  I changed the focus of my scenery in Xplane to the Southwest, since that's where I enjoy flying the most.  I also changed back to USA_2 as my source, I feel there is a more natural coloration from that source.  Altogether I rendered over 100 tiles between yesterday and today, with my computer running the batch job while I slept.
