Vertx Diamond DA62 questions - chocks & covers? paint kit?

Recommended Posts

I am really enjoying the superb realism and the excellent quality of the visual model on the Diamond, though I have only done two flights to date, and have yet to explore all details of the manual (or those supplied from Diamond or Garmin!).

However, I have only had this aircraft for one day and have a few questions which some longer users may be able to help with:

1. is there a feature to set chocks, tie-downs, or engine, cockpit & pitot covers for this aircraft?

2. is there a mode/setting where the pilot disappears from a cold and dark cockpit?

3. is there a feature to attach an external power supply?

4. is there a paint kit available anywhere yet?  or has there been any announcement about plans for one?  (I have been able to change registrations numbers, but would love to be able to do more than that).

Any help would be welcomed!

Cheers,

Brian

Thanks Rudi.  Yep - I'm having loads of fun with it, and will do for many years, I am sure - the best-presented GA model I have seen so far.

It would be nice to have a few of the additional features I asked about, but non of them is a deal-breaker.  I found the aux power switch and that will make ground work easier (planning the next flight, etc.), as the battery runs flat fairly quickly if anything significant is not switched off.  I am surprised though, that there is no physical evidence outside the aircraft that ground power has been connected.

The paint kit, however, would be really great to have, and given that the Vertx artists must have created one to paint the models included in the purchase, it should not be hard or time-consuming to prepare one for end-users.

Cheers,

Brian

Also searched for a paintkit.

But it seems it is in general very quiet now about Vertx Sim. There is still no forum, no info if this bird is still in development, if there is something else is coming.....

A paint kit would be real nice, but its not hard to change colors on the color scheme and change the numbers too.

Yes - I've changed the registration number to one of my own already … did you change these colours using colour balance, or using hue/saturation?  Its a nice combination, BTW!

What I'd really like to do is create a different scheme altogether - and a paint kit is certainly required for that job.

From what I've seen in other posts about Vertx and not receiving any replies from the support email ( I have not interior sounds)

The developer is having real world issues that of course take priority.

I'm hoping he/she gets that resolved and support, some updates, and a paint kit would be forthcoming.

Thank you! 🙂

I put vector-masked layers with layer blending over them in Photoshop, so the details could show through. You could also use the Replace Color in Ps for some colors (it doesnt always do a nice job, so you have to experiment on a duplicate layer).
