  1. I haven't noticed anything but a few people (like 2 total I've seen) have had ctds.
  2. Thanks! Yes indeed... though you'll see in part 2 a portion of the route is very similar hehe. I think you know me by now....I love all sorts of general aviation aircraft.
  3. Unfortunately not. You have to purchase the Premium Deluxe version of MSFS.
  4. Affirmative. AAU2 beta may be a prerequisite but I'm not certain. Navigraph also has support for the TBM. And to follow will be the CJ4 and G1000 NXi. Of course the FXF Vision Jet now has the charts after an update and the HJet is in beta testing for them.
  5. Not that I know of. But I think you can save views of the cockpit in msfs. For instance a zoomed up view of the primary instruments or a closeup of the engine gauges. I don't use those because I fly with TIR or VR.
  6. This is a flight I really enjoyed last week. I took too many shots as usual so I've split my posts once again. I also picked up Navigraph charts and paired with the WT Longitude, it is really an incredible match. It's not quite full study level, but the C700 is more advanced than any other bizjet (except the Hot Start CL35 in XP). MSFS Premium Deluxe is required but definitely worth it now. Flight was just about an hour long covering 300ish miles. KBUF BUF8 GEE HNK IGN IGN1 KJFK I hope you enjoy! (Yes it's a rare cold and dark start for me!)

  7. Thanks! Thanks me too! Ah yes indeed - though depends on who you ask hehe Appreciate it Darryl I've had more than a couple of virtual scares HAHA
  8. Hehe vfr just means you're maintaining cloud and visibility requirements. When I fly vfr irl I'm usually just going gps direct. You can do all sorts of methods of navigation, in any sort of aircraft. I've worked 747s vfr before. You can also do practice approaches (shooting an approach like you would when IFR), while vfr. Ironically, the vision jet is kinda an annoying aircraft to work IFR enroute. It's very slow and can really get in the way up at FL310 or even in the high 20s. At least in the USA where you could fly vfr at 17,500 ft it's perfect option for short hops.
  9. Primarily 1440p But fairly often I use Reverb G2 with 150% render and DLSS. It's still a little blurrier than I would like but acceptable for most of my flying. If doing full imc I frequently will zoom into or lean in to see a display or instrument. Using rtx 4080 and TAA with frame gen in 2D. CPU is 12700K.
  10. Absolutely. Great views from the cockpit and very capable.
  11. No. Afaik it's only in dx12. It may be present in 11 but I stopped using 11 the moment I got my rtx 4080.
  12. Are we able to bind buttons and keys and keep them active only while in VR or outside of VR? I've found that having my mouse look active makes things lag very bad in VR. Something about noisy hardware inputs I guess. Anyway I've found if I unbind mouse look it takes away the intermittent lag while using my mouse to interact with the cockpit while in VR. But not having it is too annoying when simming in 2D mode.
  13. Isnt the salty mod basically not needed anymore? The AAU2 avionics by WT are more advanced. That being said maybe salty can branch off the WT work and add an EFB
  14. Yep I saw lightning today near Omaha NE and there was a T storm there indicated by radar. First time I've seen it in over a year in msfs.
  15. I use a browser called DuckDuckGo that's is really nice while on mobile. Otherwise it's just Chrome with Adblock
