  1. I couldn't care less and would rather love to see the already existing (and promising) Citation Longitude get a flight model and study-level systems depth overhaul. This bird can get you anywhere with its 3.500nm range and ample cruise speed. Or brush up the already existing CJ4 which is also decent as a starting point. Personally, not too interested in flying the low-speed, low-range Citations, no matter how good they're done in the sim. If only MSFS had a Challenger 650 as good as the one for X-Plane ...
  2. Having a long-time sim background and now on MSFS, I ventured into X-Plane for the first time because of an aircraft addon that is available for X-Plane only. Yes, it's less polished than MSFS. Yes, it needs more work. But I found it to be appealing in many regards nevertheless, and it's definitely a keeper. Oddly enough, ever since I got into X-Plane, I find myself firing up MSFS less and less .... It all comes down to personal preferences. Arguing that other sims should be dropped and all development efforts should go to MSFS exclusively instead are just hilarious.
  3. Some things finally come true. Amazing! Thanks for that mod!
  4. Well I hope to see David‘s LLBG for P3D v4 as soon as it is possible. I have been following his work and what can be seen already is awesome. I hope David won‘t get caught up in perfectionism and delay the release over and over again.
  5. ok thanks. It will become interesting for me again once the navigational aspects have been improved.
  6. Hi, Is the NGXu finally capable of handling RF (radius to fix) legs or does it still use the „old“ PMDG navdata format? Thanks
  7. Sorry for the late reply. Been quite busy recently. Definitely interested. Will send email through PM.
  8. Having read a bit around on the RXP GTN forums it appears that LinkVor = true is a requirement for vertical guidance autopilot approach coupling to work. So it appears that the Lear 35 RMI must learn to deal with this and keep both VOR channels open independent of GPS mode or ILS coupling ( the latter only using VOR1 and not blocking VOR2 as well).
  9. Hi, using latest GTN 750 in P3D v4.4 I have the GTN configured to use „simulator“ as clock source. That works fine as to the fact that the GTN will start up with the time set in P3D. However, when using time acceleration, this will have no effect on the elapsed time when using the flight timers within the GTN. The clock speed of the GTN will stay at 1x, which of course gives totally wrong results for time accelerated flights. Should the GTN clock speed not adapt to simulator speed when clock source is set to „simulator“ ?
  10. Now, as far as I can see, when LinkVor = false, the glide slope *is* there for LPV approaches. The problem is that the red vertical GS flags across the sides of ADI and HSI do not clear away. Next to the red flags, on the right side, you can see a tiny yellow arrow tip that moves with vertical guidance in case an LPV approach is active. It appears that the flags obstruct the yellow vertical guidance pointers. You can even see more of the yellow vertical guidance if the deviation is big so the yellow arrows go above or below the red flags. See here: https://ibb.co/G7X91FV However, on arming the GS on the autopilot system, GS will not be captured (presumably because the signal is flagged as invalid). Unless there is a setting in the RXP GTN.ini file other than LinkVor=true which kills the VOR indications on the RMI (please share!), I think the Lear ADI/HSI should take away the GS flags and make the autopilot accept the vertical signal as soon as there is any GS input and work properly with LinkVor = false
  11. I‘ll tinker with it some more. Let‘s see what I can come up with.
  12. if it wasn‘t for the LPV vertical guidance it would be perfect. VOR1 and 2 completely separated from GPS.
  13. Yes, that brings back both(!) VOR needles on the RMI independent of GPS or VLOC mode. But you lose RNAV/LPV vertical guidance 😞. That seems to require VOR linking to be set to true, I just tried it with LPV approaches into LFSB. No glide slope on Lear HSI with VOR linking in GTN disabled. Other ideas?
  14. Hi, I am using the latest Lear 35 together with a single RXP GTN unit (version The GTN, as a single unit, is configured to COM1/NAV1, so my expectation is that it would only occupy the VOR1 channel via GPS. I have put the frequency of a nearby VOR in both NAV1 and NAV2 and set both RMI needles to VOR. Now, look at this: In VLOC mode, both RMI needles indicate the selected VOR, as expected: https://ibb.co/W0z9jMV Now, the GTN is switched to GPS. Upon doing so, I lose the VOR1 indication on the RMI, since it is now coupled to the GPS. This works as expected: https://ibb.co/187jKrp Now, I add a waypoint to the flight plan in the GTN. Upon entering the waypoint, VOR2 indication on the RMI is lost: https://ibb.co/XLSm0h8 However, the VOR2 channel should not be affected by the GTN at all, since it is configured to take COM1/NAV1. What is wrong here?
