New Eaglesoft Cirrus Turbo is a gem..

Recommended Posts

For current owners of the non-turbo Cirrus this may be less of an event, but whether you own the earlier version or not, the new one is a beauty.Looks fabulous, inside and outside, and flies great (with a Rob Young flight model).Performance is good, in spite of the very nice glass gauges.. and the sheer "fun" factor makes this plane worth every penny.Have a look at the Eaglesoft screen-shots !http://www.eaglesoftdg.com/CSR22G3Tss.htm..and the specshttp://www.eaglesoftdg.com/CirrusSR22G2_G3T.htmps. If you want to integrate the RXP GNS530, send me a PM with your e-mail address and I can send you some instructions.Disclaimer: Eaglesoft does not support such modifications and warns that there are some incompatibilities (which I can live with..).

Bert,Can you quantify "good performance?" How is the frame rate in the VC? The VC quality and gauge update rate? Thanks in advance.Bob..

Quantify performance... well, on my Q6600 she flies great with very fluid gauges in the virtual cockpit. The visual quality in the virtual cockpit is first rate.. much better than the FSX G1000 models.I'm not a great fan of the FSX GPS, so that is why I put in the RXP unit, but other than that, I have not found anything to complain about.

Has anyone experienced problems with the widescreen 2D panel? I have a 1600x1200 monitor and the panel is a little squished from the sides. The round guages are not round. In the VC the guages look perfectly round.Also, I am having problems getting the evelvator trim on my Saitek X45 to let go when using autopilot. I haved used the Disconnect elevator when autopilot is in use setting in FSUIPC with no success.I really love the new plane too. It's a jewel.Thanks Eaglesoft

The widescreen panels are 1680X1050. Change your screen resolution to 1680X1050 in the sim settings menu and all will be fine.We hear that the Saitek controller has a number of issues but don't own one so can't help there. :-)

Your panel is actually a 4 : 3 panel, so the standard 2d panel is what you should use.The widescreen panel is a 16 : 9 format.

Sorry about it being at night, but I just finished the flight and well it's night here.:) The frame rate is 27.5 with unlimited selected. The bottom Garmin 430 is Rxp's. The jpg is obviously heavily compressed. The aircraft has the clearest and sharpest night time glass panels I have seen. Eaglesoft has also delivered excellent cockpit lighting for night time flights. The gauge update rates are very good and smooth. The frame rates are overall very good considering all the visual info displayed on the PFD and MFD. The little things really complete an airplane and the Avidyne digital checklist and procedures add a nice touch. So far, I'm very impressed with this plane. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/191712.jpg

Thanks Rob. I don't have a 1600x1050 setting in the sim. Am I doing something wrong?I understand the Saitek issue. I was looking for someone with a Saitek to comment.

Ken, it's Ron. Nothing you are doing wrong at all. Some video cards do not support 1680X1050 or higher resolutions therefore you would not find it in the selection menu.In the case you are better off to select a 4 : 3 ratio suxh as 1280X960 or 1600X1200 and simply do not use the widescreen selection on our aircraft.Contact me at our support forum and we can take you further..don't want to clog Avsims forum w/our support questions :-)

just a general question about eaglesoft FSX aircraft:when it says 'FSX/SP2/DX10 compliant', does that mean it requires SP2?I cant currently run SP2. I do well with SP1.Will the Cirrus and other aircraft work just fine with SP1?

>wow that looks great. is there a brightness control for those>of us who like flying with very dim light?That is one of the nicest features. Both the PFD and MFD have separate dim controls.

>Will the Cirrus and other aircraft work just fine with SP1?Yes. The 'FSX/SP2/DX10 compliant' phrase is descriptive, not restrictive... ;)

"when it says 'FSX/SP2/DX10 compliant', does that mean..."The FSX/SP2/DX10 terminology is our way of saying our aircraft meet the highest known standard for FSX aircraft.While we understand that some do not run SP2 we must build to highest and best standard.Bill Leaming has done some testing under SP1 so he says yes :-)

Not to derail too much but how is the Garmin 1000 Cessna 400 coming along? :)

There is no Cessna 400 from us..We are building the Columbia 400/G1000 version and it's progressing slowly but surely:-)

Considering the FPS display is decent in the night VC shot does that mean the model is a true FSX SDK model? I may have to seriously consider this one.... I talk to the test pilots all day :)
