Xtreme Prototypes new webpage: Model 25 SE v3 now for sale

Recommended Posts

Just noticed that the Xtreme Prototypes webpage is back, and GLJ Model 25 SE v3.0 is now for sale: USD $59.95 (upgrade price of $39.95 for registered users of v2.0/2.1). See here for more details.

I don't have v2.0/2.1, but I've been waiting for this one for a long time, so it's an instant buy for me.

The plane is uglier than an emaciated Greyhound, but goddamit a beautiful, full color 335 page manual. This is how it's done. Milviz are you taking notes?

I wish it were an Embraer Phenom 300E or a Cessna Citation and not this rust bucket from the 1970s!

v2 was an extremely well done aircraft. Just that it had an unrealistic autothrottle and SPD mode. Will scan the manual if they fixed it with v3. But this is definitely a must buy for me 😄

According to the info it's fixed, but agreeing with you on the price ...

 

... also looks like they fixed the fuel system.

You have to bear in mind this is a 1970s aircraft so the systems are not the same as on today's aircraft. For its time this was how things worked. The autothrottle does work well once you understand it. SPD and MACH Hold work well. Tthey hold the speed at the time they are engaged so some manually throttle tweaking is required. You soon get used to it.

Integration of the Rex Wx gauge is a welcome feature and those of you who have the Reality or Flight 1 GTN/GPS units will love the integration. And yes, the manual is a work of art. And at Mach 0.82 and a ceiling of over 50,000ft it's pretty nippy! But as an owner of v2 you know all this anyway. 😉

The problem is that SPD mode on a real lear 25 used pitch to control your airspeed and they never had autothrottles. On the XP Lear v2, it acted like an autothrottle (it controlled your throttle levers) instead of using pitch. There was a big discussion about this in an old thread here on avsim.

Its a moot point though as they seem to have fixed it now with v3 😄

How does this compare to the FlySimwear Lear 35A?

Of the few returns I had as the first version, the bird is hard with fps.
