Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if this release will have G1000 popup or ability for use on second monitor?

 In that case, I'd assume that if you have FD/AP/HUD, your DH/MDA/DA doesn't change, but that you can proceed with 1800RVR provided the measurement is coming from the airfield. If the tower is closed and your relying on McMinville, you have to go back to the published minimums.

 

Just my guess, though...

You have a lot of clue I would say - thanks!

I hope there are tutorials on how to do these landings with these charts.  I do not fully understand on how to read these things about navigation

This is a very complex topic and far away from what a Vertx beta tester has in scope to produce videos about. And it is spread over several documents. There is a FAA document which contains some sort of "Legend" regarding the charts. Also in the US AIM you find some info. At the FAA site you also find ATPL training material. The best I have ever seen. Of course these are valid for US only. Also a lot of aeronautical knowledge and some background info "how things work" or physical knowledge is needed. DGPS (see my video part 4 B) is such an example. What I said in the video was only to give a first idea. Is much, much simplified... Might be there are also video tutorials elsewhere. VATSIM has some documents, for members only I guess.

Thank you Rudi for sharing these insights.  

Your videos are so good.

 

Looking forward to this addon's release

I do not want to say anything which is wrong. At the moment, today, there is no popup. But these things can change very fast. At the latest at release time it will be clear. And Sean also promised to add features in the future.

Please do not consider this as "promise". I am not an "official" from Vertx. Sean decides and nobody else. And I have no clue how much people request this and how difficult this is to implement. The Vertx G1000 displays are NO common 2D gauges, see website http://www.vertxsim.com so it can not be done the usual way and I have no clue how that would hit fps.

I use only one monitor, always want the most beautiful landscape at reasonable fps. So I can nothing say about that.

I understand what you want, but remember my videos, many important info (Map, flightplan, engine parameters...) you can display on both PFD and MFD, I personally (not Vertx!) call the DA62 some sort of a "Mini Airbus" (guys, please forgive me this comparison). It has a FMA (AFCS Status Box), in my videos "part 4 A"- "part 4 C" I demonstrate some sort of "managed descend" (AFCS VPTH mode). There are so many things I could not demonstrate yet, as I mentioned several times, although I provide about 110 minutes preview video at time of writing this.

For example, the CWS (Control wheel steering) autopilot feature. You can (in autopilot mode!) command a new bank angle, pitch and more using the stick, release the stick/CWS button (see below) and the aircraft holds this attitude, only ONE simplified example! Question: Which aircraft family reminds you of that? It makes sense to take over features reliable since decades from others imo. Remember, the real thing (Diamond) was "published" 2015, in contrast to these "old Cessna soapboxes"!

What I write here is no secret. See the Garmin G1000 manual for the DA62 you have access to, search there for "CWS" and later the Vertx DA62 user guide for details and limitations, consider, regarding what I said above, is simplified, I am not an official from Vertx. See my video "part 2". You can config it as "Auto CWS" or assign a CWS button (Prepar3D: "Cabin alert - no smoking on/off") like the real thing. There seem to be "not much" "Vertx-limits" regarding this, because Sean, after a very interesting introduction, points to the Garmin docs in his user guide. Believe me, regarding this user guide, for some people it might be the first user guide they read from first to last page...

Good night for now. Hope there are not so much typos...

Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. Good point about doing most things from the PDF. I had not really thought about that since I have not spend much time looking at the previous G1000 releases because they were such resource hogs and not very complete. This looks to be very nice. I will be looking forward to Friday and thanks for all the videos and information. I am sure you are getting pretty tired now and are very busy.

That's interesting to me. I don't know of any plane in p3dv4 or xplane that doesn't have a 2d popup for any gps in the plane. I have many planes. That really surprises me:(

Update:

All works fine at the moment. No delays.

Release date:

Asia, Australia, New Zealand: do not expect release before Saturday 2018-12-15

Europe: do not expect release before night Friday to Saturday

US: release at Friday 2018-12-14

this is only caused by the time shift between countries. Release will occur worldwide at the same time, not country-wise.

Dates named according to ISO 8601.

@rudi0310 I wanted to say thanks so much for your videos.  I have done some video editing before and it is a LOT of work and you did a great job with them.  They have helped so much with me feeling comfortable hopping into this plane and at least getting some of the basics going right off the bat.

I wasn't flying on flightsim with the realair planes came out.  I took a multi year break from FS for a while and I'm frustrated with how great those planes sound and that I'm not able to get them.  Then here comes this DA62, I'm so excited for it.

I have been flying on FSEconomy for a while and I am looking forward to using the DA62 on there.  I have also been planning on doing a world tour flight in a small GA plane, and I think this DA62 is going to probably be the bird I do it in. 

Great work on the plane Sean, and for the other add on developers this is the way to release a plane, have it 90% of the way there, start talking about it a couple of months, not years, in advance.  Show the real plane doing real things in the pre release stage, and then release it when you say your going to.  Yes delays happen sometimes but a week is much better than months.

Can't wait for tomorrow!

edit:  One question.  I am still on p3d v4.3 do I need to update to 4.4 for this plane or will it work on 4.3?

Thanks for your feedback and for sharing your experiences. A few days ago at the Vertx website main page it was announced for "Prepar3D V4", can not find that at the moment. I tested with V4.3 and V4.4. There were no changes necessary regarding V4.4 AFAIK. Dynamic reflections look different as shown in my video part 3 and 4 C https://www.youtube.com/user/rudi031 There might be performance differences also regarding dynamic reflections. Edit: This is the only aircraft capable of dynamic reflections in V4.3 AFAIK.
