  1. Might have to actually redownload this baby.
  2. Can the flight dynamics, like the cfg. be copied from one like plane to another? Like the Flight1 Pc-12 to the Carenado PC-12? I have always felt that the Carenado planes, while good in their own right, were way to twitchy.
  3. Can you post some picks? I am thinking of picking up the GTN and would like to see how it looks in this bird. Thanks!
  4. Looks damn good to be Alpha. I still kick myself I didn't pre-purchase to be able to mess around and test with it to this day.
  5. Been doing some reading from pilots who used to fly these. They say they used to be able to get cleared to upper ALTs easy, as even in the 30s they could maintain 2k-3k FPM. That to me sounds like a rocket. Also these engines are pure stage 2 turbo jet engines, while not good on fuel, they have fighter jet performance and this little bird has two of them. They used to call this plane the "Lawn Dart with Little Wings". While I am still a little unsure about the ability to take this particular addon off with 60% N1, I will keep reading as this debate has actually taught me a lot about a plane I knew little of. People speak about this model like it was the Rolls Royce of aviation in its time. A lot of fighter jet pilots actually make comparisons between this plane and the ones they used to fly.... These two videos show that it is indeed a fighter jet. If these climbs are realistic with full power, I can imagine taking off from a longer runway with 60-70%.
  6. I can't seem to get the fuzzy display to go away. I never use FXAA and I have to move my TrackIR all the way in to see the little switches and be able to read the writing. Other than that, it takes off like a rocket, and I am sorry, but with full fuel I don't think I should be busting the 250KTS at 6K+ FPM after takeoff. Will have to read more, as I don't know about the real thing but damn, that just seems kinda silly. At cruise it handles nice, and you can't beat the frames. I really want to like this, as the BizJet area is kinda, well no, not kinda, but extremely limited, and I see nothing new on the horizon anytime soon. I will keep playing with the settings and see if I can get some more info on how this thing handles. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- edit. Never exceed speed: Mach 0.86 (at max take-off weight) Maximum speed: 545 mph (473 knots, 877 km/h) at 31,000 ft (9,450 m) Cruise speed: 481 mph (418 knots, 774 km/h) at 45,000 ft (13,715 m) Stall speed: 100 mph (87 knots, 161 km/h) Range: 1,695 mi (1,472 nmi, 2,728 km) 4 passengers, max fuel, 45 min reserves Service ceiling: 45,000 ft (13,715 m) Rate of climb: 6,800 ft/min (34.6 m/s) Well then, I guess this thing is a rocket, but I am still not sure if the ROC is calculated fully loaded or not.
  7. Ahh...first impressions were not that great for me. Frames seem to be great and equal to default aircraft and the visuals are ok. Just ok to me. One thing I noticed that I will have to figure out is what the texture quality of the VC is kinda fuzzy, not sharp at all. The outside is good, but I have to figure out where that "secret" button is that turns off the parking stuff, as I was flying with floating wheel chocks and engine covers. Will continue to play around with it, and try and see why the display is not as sharp as others say before I make the decision to park it or not. Yes. It has a native installer.
  8. I will bite. Will purchase and download tonight. Should have a little "first impressions" up this evening. I'm kinda a sucker for BizJets.
  9. I plan to make my own routes. I see me flying a lot of. KMIA-KATL KMIA-KMEM KJFK-KLAX-KLAS and generally up and down the east coast of the US. I just need to find out minimum landing feet needed and I will be all set. skyvector is my buddy. Sent from my Apple communications device.
  10. If you are flying during the day, and not the crack of dawn, more then likely you will have the short turn. Pretty much only GA fliers have complete cold and darks each time. Sent from my Apple communications device.
  11. Will have to try this out! Sent from my Apple communications device.
  12. Creation tools? -As in tools like Arma2 that allow users to make maps? If so, cool! Sent from my Apple communications device.
  13. @@groentesoep Thanks for the HU! I will try Her out tonight. KLAX, here I come.
  14. Oh well. Hand flying Her is nice either way and I grew tired of letting the NGX fly me around and started to hand fly SIDS/STARS so I am no stranger. Also, flying online makes it better too as you have usually ATC giving out altitudes rather than looking at the box Sent from my Apple communications device.
  15. Still a little confused. Lets say you have 4 alt constraints. I set up the vnav for the last one and it will still hit the 3 before it? Or is is a kinda, pick one and go with it kinda thing. Reason is, I like flying into KLAX and we all know about the multiple constraints one after the other there. Sent from my Apple communications device.
