Challenger 650 coming !!!

Recommended Posts

I never really did commuters or bizz-jets in flight simulation, but the enthusiastic feedback I've been getting from Alexis, my great simmer friend from Brasil now living "next to me" in Porta-Land ( probably the most beautiful place in the whole World to live ! if not for other reasons, because of the great chicas - comment meant for Zulfi here !!! ), motivated me to follow this project.

X-Aviation / Hotstart has announced the imminent release. Alexis owns the TBM-900 and all he has to say about it is that it is a unique experience, of detail, accuracy and simulation quality and performance.

The author, a guy with the "totoritko" alias ( or something like that 🙂 ) is a perfectionist, does "low level" C++ coding which optimizes the performance of his creations, and has been implementing a huge / complex / fantastic collection of features in the products he creates or helps creating.

Looking fwd for that Challenger !!! It's a Challenge for sure ! And while it'll be released for X-Plane 11 now, I believe it'll get a free update into v 12 ( ? )

As a tease of implemented details, including the mnodelling of non-ISA pressure lapse rates, here's a video he created to explain how it is implemented in the 650:

Looks like the aircraft has pretty good specs:

RANGE: Maximum range: 4,000 nm
SPEED MACH: Top speed 0.85, High speed cruise 0.82, Typical cruise speed 0.80
OPERATING ALTITUDE: Maximum operating altitude: 41,000 ft, Initial cruise altitude (MTOW) 37,000 ft

I hope the X-Plane version does an excellent job of simulating the aircraft. It will be nice to have a bizjet with Trans-Atlantic capability.

This looks to be the most detailed addon for xp - maybe for any sim

And yes to SYN VIS

It's the kind of add-on that could well relief me from WW2 games where I spent all of my $40 budget for a simming Christmas present for myself 🙂 - bought Tank Crew for IL-2 Great Battles 🙂 but wasn't aware they didn't have an FMC 😕

Also the kind of add-on that can turn a simulator platform into a specific aircraft simulator. It's probably like if Aerowinx PSX got the grapics of X-Plane 11, and in the future maybe X-Plane 12.

XP11 version will be the best you can get in flight sim for a while yet

This looks great.

I’m heavily into Biz Jets. However, I’ve never had Xplane!  (90%P3DV5. 10%MSFS.) 

I don’t mind a £60 investment but what else is essential?  

If I’m into systems and online flying and not too bothered about eye candy could you guys suggest minimum shopping list for Xplane adding. (cost). 


And please tempt me with the other superior biz jets I could add. 

Thanks!


UK P3DV5 and Xplane 11 Simmer
PilotEdge I11, CAT11, A-Z (ZLA), A-Z (WUS)

System details: Gigabyte P57v7 CF2 17.3" laptop. Kaby Lake i7 7700HQ CPU (averaging 3.4mhz). NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8mb (laptop version), 16 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, SSD - Samsung 970 Evo  500GB M.2 NVMe, 1TB HDD 7200.

Xplane

37,69€ on steam (on sale)

https://store.steampowered.com/app/269950/XPlane_11/

or

$59 direct

https://www.x-plane.com/desktop/buy-it/

The plane.

A PC with a reasonably high end CPU and GPU to run them on. (Cost varies)

And a VR headset for that unforgettable "OMFG I'm really in the cockpit" feeling. ($600 and up) - not 100% essential, but worth every cent.
