  1. I also enjoyed this one in P3D. I'll likely buy it as well.
  2. I'd even take a Carenado C90 (with the old ProLine 4 I think).
  3. Ditto. Does look nice but "meh." Bring out the turbo bonanzas (analogue gauges please), golden eagles, lancairs, king airs etc
  4. Yeah I have Navigraph. The approach is there but the IAF is not selectable as a standalone fix (for that 10R approach). I had to select a transition like GEP or MEYER.
  5. I had a very early beta - and it wasn't great. I'm going to get the latest version now and see what's working and what isn't. The thing is, the GTN is a modern navigator... and that's it's first job. If it can't do that I'm not very interested. Additional features like METARs are cool...but the MSFS weather is not accurate half the time anyway. Charts via Navigraph are also cool but FliteCharts worked fine on the RXP/F1 versions. Sure it wasn't always updated but it worked great. You also need a charts sub to get it (I spent 85 USD for the annual plan). Can we even use the mouse for panning yet? I'm guessing no rubber band flight planning either. Anyway I'm off to get a the latest version. Alright so I did a little checkup to see what is working in this latest beta. I also downloaded premium which apparently will be payware when finished. Right off the bat - you're stuck with default Asobo flight planning. You have to enter a departure and destination pair first on the FPL screen. Not accurate to the real one (in real one normally your origin is already displayed then you just enter waypoints and destination at the end). Annoying to me. annoyed by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr I use Navigraph data. The waypoints are in the sim but you cannot select all IAFs from the PROC screen. In this case of RNAV(GPS) RWY 10R KFCM I must first select GEP as the transition, then go Direct YICUK. I should be able to simple select YICUK. Any IAF or IF's should be selectable. fcmrnav10r by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr missingtransitions by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr RNAV 36 KFCM...can't shoot approach from OCEWA. (Oddly enough I was able to select it as an IAF).... but it just sequences to the FA: IJEYU fcmrnav36 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr missingOcewa by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Cannot graphically edit the FPL.... but you can pan the flight plan map via mouse which is nice and expected. Cannot zoom with mouse wheel. I read on Discord that he doesn't think it will be possible because Asobo doesn't allow that or something nographicaledit by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr I am happy to find OBS mode works! obsyes by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Waypoint info works and you can select the VOR freq to put it in standby waypointIDyes by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Navigraph charts working great! chartsyes by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr METARs...I didn't setup my token yet but again...as far as MSFS is concerned..it doesn't read the important cloud ceilings and visibility values anyway Overall it has some feature above and beyond the default Gxxx units...but from a navigation perspective, it falls quite short of what it should do.
  6. In a nutshell - reliable navigation. Hopefully this will come with WT working on the base sim though.
  7. I'm not so sure you're familiar with the capabilities of the RXP GTN then hehe.
  8. The GTN 750 was integrated into NUMEROUS addons (either Flight1 or RXP). It turned planes that could barely navigate via modern methods, into reliable navigators. 30-40 bucks for a GTN is more than fair. I mean you could spend 140 USD on the PMDG 737....and do it again 3 or 4 times for each new version since FSX...
  9. Hopefully they'll listen to your suggestions....cause that didn't happen in alpha haha.
  10. Mooney Acclaim was the fastest production piston single and the Lancair Legacy is the fastest piston single of all. The Mooney gets it's top speed up high but the Legacy can do it down low too.
  11. I agree... I just tend to push it in flightsim.... free gas and zero cost annuals HAHA
  12. Maybe around 180 KTAS at 75% power. I usually just go into the green arc EGT but run higher prop and MP settings so usually like 190 KTAS at 8000.
