  1. Hi Jfrex,

    This question could be asked before.

    Why is there so much interest in GTN 750, is the functionality better GPS than  Garmin G1000?

  2. Hi. I am using your GTN mode with the RXP GTN 750 in the Carenado DA62.  I cannot seem to acquire an altitude preselect.  My FLC button only flashes on then immediately back to off if pressed.  Preselecting an altitude and then using VS and nose up or down gets me into VS, but I go right through the preselected altitude.  Any thoughts or directions?

  3. Adrian, Just tested the buttons in the stock Carenado Phenom 300, and they all work fine as long as battery switches are on. You might be missing a gauge in your panel.cfg, or worse, in your gauges folder. If you have an original panel.cfg backup, try loading the aircraft with that one. Installing some add-ons like a GTN750 gauge, will make a backup before overwriting your file. Last recourse if you cannot make it work, do a clean reinstall, and try it before adding any add-ons. Good luck, Jorge
  4. Adrian, The white bar indicates that the button is pushed in, no bar means it is off. The Pusher Cutout button disables the Stall Warning Pusher System SWPS, which pushes the yoke forward in a stall. Jorge
  5. In the Speed knob, a left click will switch the IAS/M mode, and a right click will capture actual airspeed into selected airspeed. However There is no automatic switching. Hope this helps.
  6. Hi Jorge

    How can I obtain a copy of the "updated" GTN-750 for the EMB-300?

    My email is "richardschmidt27@gmail.com"

    Have a nice day!

    Regards

  7. Transparent cockpit are mostly due to a missing gauge or a faulty panel.cfg file. Check the gauges folder and or try a working panel.cfg from the P3D v4.5 if you still have it. This seems to be a security feature built into the model.
  8. I would love to try the Phenom 300 mod.

    My e-mail is:  barnstormer716@gmail.com

    Thanks, 

    Bill

  9. Please forward to mcdonaldgt5@gmail.com your m

      Hi Jorge

      I need to apologize for my last message. You had kindly sent me the download link for these mods already. So, please ignore this new request.

      Thank you!

  11. PHENOM 100 GTN INTEGRATION MOD v2.0 The revised version of the Flight1 GTN750 Integration Mod for the Carenado Phenom 100 (FSX, FSX_SE and P3D), originally released in January 2017, is ready for beta testing. It provides a replacement for the virtual cockpit G1000 MFD with options for a single GTN750 and a dual GTN750. The new gauge incorporates a completely redesigned Engine Information System (EIS) sidebar with three pages of engine, aircraft systems, and fuel status and performance information. All gauges and readouts are live, and are modeled to the operational parameters and limits of the real Phenom 100. Optional textures modifications for the lower panel are provided for installation of a Wx radar or secondary GTN 650 in the single GTN option, in place of the GCU keypad. For the dual GTN option, only the radar texture is offered, as there is a limitation of two GTN units per panel. These textures also modify the bottom and right bezels softkeys of the MFD to add functionality for the EIS and shortcuts to the GTN(s) unit(s). The EIS pages for both the single and the dual GTN panel options are shown below: GTN MFD ENHANCEMENTS In addition to the revised EIS pages, a number of modifications and additional features are included in the GTN-MFD gauge for the Phenom 100: Automatic Thrust Reserve (ATR) functionality is enabled. The default mode for the ATR is off, and can be enabled via the ENG SET softkey button in the EIS Engine page to engage the Takeoff Reserve power setting or thru the 2D stock MFD. It will provide 4 percent power increase when engaged. The ATR is automatically enabled under one engine operation. Under normal conditions, the ATR will disengage after 20 minutes operation. The engine igniter switches are functional. An engine will not start if its igniter switch is set to OFF. The transponder settings are automatically controlled by the GTN MFD. The PFD’s XPDR mode (STBY, ON, ALT) will be switched to STBY on the ground, to ON below 500’ AGL and to ALT mode over 500’ AGL. Oxygen tank’s initial quantity is set to full at startup when fuel capacity is greater that 70%, otherwise it is set as percentage of fuel capacity. Consumption is calculated based on 5 hrs duration with 1850 lbs. with the Oxygen valve open and altitude above 10000 MSL. No Dispatch CAS warnings will appear on the EIS gauge if pressure is below 730 psi. Landing field elevation warning in all EIS will remain until field elevation is updated, as in the real aircraft. Cabin altitude is set to density altitude on initialization. Barometric minimums will initially be set to 200 above LFE and are adjusted with the FMS knob in the lower right of the bezel in the MFD or PFD. Cockpit animations for side sunshades and instrument reflections are enabled on a cold cockpit, and are disabled when either battery switch is on. Pushback can be activated by the Cabin ALT switch on the lower panel. Left click toggles the pushback on, right click disables the Push back. Parking brake is automatically released before starting the pushback. The original Cabin Alt switch functionality is not affected by this change, and will continue to work inflight. Ground Power mode has been added to power up the Shed Bus while on ground with ENG2 running. Spoiler are now available for the Phenom 100 (the aircraft.cfg file needs to be modified). Ground spoilers are automatically enabled by the full flaps setting and automatically retracted on speed below 30 knots, or flap retraction from FULL position. Speed brakes can manually activated via the keyboard shortcut or thru a joystick or the throttle quadrant lever or button. There is no provision for a spoiler lever or switch in the VC cockpit. Front recognition strobe lights have been added, activated via the Effects switch in the overhead cabin light panel. Two options are provided, normal and fast strobe effects. Strobes are disabled when landing or taxi light is turned on. Flap activation turns recognition strobes off and activates the landing lights when airspeed greater than 30 knots. Pressure gauges are modeled to be more realistic. Oxygen level will fall, hydraulic pump will activate as needed. The brake accumulator pressure will be purged after six brake cycles, and will not engage the parking brake until hydraulic pressure is restored. Electric hydraulic pressure switch pressurizes the hydraulic system when engines are off, and will turn off when engine hydraulic pressure is sensed. Emergency brake reserve tank is fed by the aircraft hydraulic system. The reserve tank provides up to six applications of the emergency brakes (Parking lever) if no system hydraulic pressure is available. Master brightness control for the PFDs, MFDs and EFIS is incorporated in the Audio panel’s Pilot/Passenger volume knob (above the Display Backup red button)and will adjust brightness levels in the PFD, MFD (EIS section), and the EFIS. Inflight fuel, time and distance statistics are provided in the corresponding EIS page in the MFD. Some of the computations such as endurance reserves, fuel required, reserve fuel at destination, rely on flight plan data variables which the GTN 750 does not provide, and must be obtained from a sim’s legacy flight plan. Creating and loading a flight plan with departure and destination waypoints will provide the sufficient data these computations. The added functionality of ATR, spoilers, yaw damper and cruise Speed Control require activation in the aircraft.cfg file in the PHENOM 100 main folder. A sample aircraft.cfg file incorporating the required changes, but the aircraft section from your aircraft.cfg file needs to be added, as only a sample aircraft is included. Thrust has been revised to 1940 lbs to account for the auto throttle reserve (1860 lbs normal). The mod will be posted to the Flight1 File Library System in as soon as is out of beta testing which will probable take a couple of weeks, if enough of you give me a hand with testing. If interested in helping out, pleas PM me with an email address, and I will send you a download link. Jorge
  12. No, it won't. The VC gauge variables are not exactly the same. I will have the Phenom 100 ready for beta test in a few days. Jorge
  13. The Phenom 300 single and dual GTN mod is ready for testing. This is a rework of the GTN 750 mod posted on the Flight1 File Library system on January 2017, and includes a completely revised EIS gauge pages for Engine, System, and Fuel planning with all live gauges and real operating parameters and alerts. A dual GTN version is also included. Configuration panel.cfg options are provided for both Flight1 and RTX GTN modules. GTN MFD ENHANCEMENTS Two configurations options are provided for the placement of the GTN gauges in the MFD cockpit, a single GTN 750, and dual side by side GTN 750s. In the single GTN, the EIS gauges are displayed vertically on the left side and the GTN fills the rest of the screen. For the dual GTN’s version, the EIS pages are displayed below the GTN gauges. Each option has its advantages and disadvantages. The single GTN screen is larger and easier on the eyes, while the dual GTN setup allows for two different pages to be displayed simultaneously, albeit on a smaller scale. The horizontal EIS pages on the dual GTN setup have larger fonts and values are less crammed than in the vertical EIS format. Modified cockpit panel textures are provided for the single and dual configuration options. Each texture basically changes the layout of the bottom softkeys that interact with the EIS pages, as well as modifications for the right bezel buttons, to add direct shortcuts to the Home, DTO, default GPS (Unit1,Unit2,Sim GPS), and stock MFD popup. Different panel configuration options are provided for each GTN setup both for F1 GTN and RTX GTN. These include the addition of a weather radar gauge or a secondary GTN 650 (only available in the single GTN alternative) in place of the MFD GCU keypad in the lower cockpit panel. Specific textures are provided for these gauges. In addition to the revised EIS pages, a number of modifications and additional features are included in the GTN MFD gauge for the Phenom 300: The PFD CDI is now crosslinked to the GTN CDI. Switching the GTN CDI will automatically set the PFD CDI source. Previously, the changes in the PFD CDI could change the GTN CDI source, but not the other way. Now if the GPS is guiding to an ILS approach, once the GTN switches to Localizer CDI mode, the PFD will automatically engage into NAV1 CDI mode. The PFD’s CDI soft key retains its original functionality and can override the GTN if desired. Automatic Thrust Reserve (ATR) functionality is enabled. The default mode for the ATR is off, and can be enabled via the ENG SET softkey button in the EIS Engine page to engage the Takeoff Reserve power setting or thru the 2D stock MFD. It will provide an extra 4 percent power when on. The ATR is automatically enabled under one engine operation, and it will automatically disengage after 20 minutes operation. As in the real aircraft, temperature must be set before enabling the ATR ON button. The engine igniter switches are functional. The engine will not start if its igniter switch is set to OFF. The transponder settings are automatically controlled by the GTN MFD. The PFD’s XPDR mode (STBY, ON, ALT) will be switched to STBY on the ground, to ON below 500’ AGL and to ALT mode over 500’ AGL. Oxygen tank’s initial quantity is set to full at startup when fuel capacity is greater that 70%, else it is set as percentage of fuel capacity. Consumption is calculated based on 5 hrs. duration with 1850 lbs. with the Oxygen valve open and altitude above 10000 MSL. No dispatch CAS warnings will appear on the EIS gauge if pressure is below 730 psi. Landing field elevation warning will remain flashing until field elevation is changed. The LFE adjustment bottom soft keys have been added to the PFD accessible thru the System EIS page. Cabin altitude is set to density altitude on initialization. Cockpit animations for side sunshades and instrument reflections are enabled on a cold cockpit, and are disabled when battery power is available. Pushback can be activated by the Cabin ALT switch on the lower panel. Left click releases the parking brake and toggles the pushback on, while right click disables the Push back (parking brake is not re-engaged). The original functionality of the Cabin Alt switch is not affected by this change, and will continue to work inflight. Visual and aural altitude capture alerts at 1000 and 100’ have been incorporated in the PFD. Ground Power mode has been added to power up the Shed Bus while on ground with ENG2 running. When active, the turbine will enter in power reduction mode. Setting the Engine1 starter switch on will disengage Ground Power mode, disconnect the Shed Bus, and restore Engine2 to its normal idle. Ground spoilers are automatically enabled by the full flaps setting and automatically retracted on speed below 30 knots, increase throttle, or flap retraction from FULL position. Speed brakes can manually activated via the cockpit switch, or programmed to a joystick or throttle quadrant lever or button. Forward recognition strobe lights have been added, activated via the Effects switch in the overhead cabin light panel. Two options are provided for two-flash and three-flash strobe effects. The strobes are automatically disabled when the landing or taxi light is activated. Flap activation turns recognition strobes off and will activate the landing lights if airspeed greater than 30 knots. Pressure gauges are modeled to be live and more realistic. Consumption of oxygen will commence above FL100 if the cutoff O2 valve is open, and no pressure readings are shown if the corresponding shutoff valves are closed (hydraulic, bleed air, ECS, Oxygen). The emergency brake reserve accumulator tank is programmed to provide up to six applications of the emergency brakes (parking lever) if no system hydraulic pressure is available. If the accumulator pressure falls below 475 psi, the emergency/parking brakes will not engage. Master brightness control for the PFDs, MFDs and EFIS has been incorporated in the Audio panel’s Pilot/Passenger volume knob (above the Display Backup red button), and will adjust the brightness levels in the PFD, MFD (EIS section), and the EFIS. Very useful to tone down the SVS brightness. Inflight fuel, time and distance statistics are provided in the corresponding EIS page in the MFD. Some of the computations such as endurance reserves, fuel required, reserve fuel at destination, rely on flight plan data variables which the GTN 750 does not provide, and must be obtained from the FSX / P3D sim’s legacy flight plan. Creating and loading a flight plan with departure and destination waypoints will provide the sufficient data these computations. More accuracy can be achieved by loading a more complete flight plan by using apps like Little NavMap to export flight plans to both the GTN and the sim’s flight planner. Cruise speed control (CSC) functionality is added to the Autopilot and enabled by the CSC button in the AP panel, the selected speed above the airspeed ribbon in the PFD will turn from cyan to green when enabled. This must be enabled in the aircraft.cfg file autopilot parameters. CSC will disengage under over speed or under speed conditions, and below 500’ AGL. All gauge parameter and limits have been modeled to the real Phenom 300, and all cockpit switches are live switches, and deviations from normal will be reflected on the CAS alerts, and in the gauges as well. The Mod also includes revised panel textures for the single and dual panel option. If you want to help in the final beta testing phase, please drop me a PM with your email address and I will send you the download link. Safe landings, Jorge
  14. Tony, The DA62 mod I sent you has a set of panel.cfg files preconfigured for the RXP GTN. Do not use the RXP configuration for specifying the location. That is already done in the included panel.cfg options, and has been tested by RXP users. Let me know if you need any help. Jorge

    Hello Jorge,

    The 6 cockpit screenshot of the Phenom 300 with your new GTN 750 mod look STUNNING. !!. Cant wait to try it out .  Will I need to disable SVS with your mod?

    Any ETA on finishing the documentation and posting it in the Flight1 file library ?

     best regards

     Hari

     a fellow Phenom -ER 🙂
