  1. My first repaint. Still tweaking details and trying to get the colors right. N4635K had beige instrument panel covers at one point, so I will be making an alternate version as well. Criticism welcome. Nitpick it. I'd like to make this as close as possible to the actual plane. But in many places, I have to get creative since the A2A geometry is significantly more modern than the referenced real-world aircraft, especially in the cockpit. N736HD is nearly identical to this aircraft, but the paint is faded, and the interior is worn and damaged. I plan to follow up with that plane later. I will post more photos as I progress.
  2. Flight1 told us today that they had released the Cessna Cardinal 177B. Flight1, in their press release, stated; "The Cessna 177B Cardinal II is a lightweight, high-wing General Aviation aircraft that was intended to replace the Cessna 172 Skyhawk. Great for short strips or longer hops, the Cardinal II features a Lycoming 4-cylinder, air-cooled engine, with a constant speed propeller. It can safely and efficiently fly up to four people approximately 600 nautical miles at a cruise speed of approximately 130 knots. The aircraft's forward seat design, which is placed ahead of the wing leading edge, provides pilots with excellent flight model and visibility in this very detailed model. Accurate and highly detailed exterior, operating doors, custom paint schemes, plus wheel chocks, inlet covers and pilot/co-pilot models are also included with the model. Inside, the easy-to-use cockpit design features interactive panels, knobs, keys, and shade visors to go along with it’s great looking interior. Plane techies will feel right at home with the Garmin / S-TEC Autopilot Avionics setup featuring: dual Garmin GNS430 GPSs, a S-TEC 55X Autopilot, a Garmin GMA340 Audio Panel and GTX327 Transponder. The avionics come with FSX flight plan importability and an Auxiliary Panel option that supports Reality-XP Radio Stack Gauges round out the options available to users. The package also includes comprehensive and detailed pilot’s guide help you get in the air in no time." You can find more information about the product here along with screenshots.
  3. Hi all! I have a quick question regarding Chaseplane which i cannot seem to find an answer for: Does CP work correctly when doing the walkaround on the A2A Cessna 172? I am currently using Ezdok, and have seen a lot of information on CP to make me consider switching (the main reason being that ezdok does not work correctly when doing the walkaround, the camera views are messed up). Everything else i have heard makes me want to jump ship, but if CP does not work correctly when doing the walkaround then there is less reason to switch. Thank you for your time.
  4. Some random shots of Papua New Guinea....
  5. Hey guys, I finally made my first Carenado purchase and I am very excited to be using this aircraft. I am pretty new to FSX and flying. I am using the Angle of Attack Tutorials to learn. Anyway, so when are you suppose to turn on the carburetor heat? does it have to be on during take off and landing? it seems to me when you turn it on your RPM drops. Thanks everyone. oh I have finally made my first video as well using Carenado Cessna 152 II.
  6. Hello guys! I have begun to be interested in smaller aircrafts, than I've flew till now (B737,B777), recently. So I began looking for them, but I'm disappointed a bit. Really, there's not any "best" bizjet on the market after aicraft model design, VC, realistic flight envelope, etc., or I'm just blind? I already tried out some add-ons, but they're not good enough, I think. Followed by list and reasons why I was not satisfied. Eaglesoft - Cessna Citation X (and any other) - alerting on issues when using Windows 8. Wilco/FeelThere - Embraer Phenom 100 - Really don't like addons by this developer, VCs are designed very poorly (textures are very strange as well), and working just from a half. Wilco/FeelThere - Embraer Legacy 600 - The same as above. Wilco/FeelThere - Regional Jets - The same as above. Also don't like Embraer 135/145, 175/195 are too large. Carenado - Embraer Phenom 100 - Have to admit, the design of the aircraft and virtual cockpit is simply awesome, but... No airac? They must be kidding us. Also I read somewhere that fuel burning is really quick in compare with real aircraft. But that's nothing compared to the absence of AIRAC updates. Flight 1 - Cessna Citation Mustang - That's also very nice processed, but there're issues with the map on MFD. I'm also not sure if all aircrafts works as should. Well, now tell me.. Is there any other choice, what I could focus at? I would like to fly small to mid-size business jet (something like Phenom 100 to Embraer Legacy) - CRJs and Embraer 175/195 or LineAge are too large. Another Embraer Phenom series, Embraer Legacy series, Bombardier LearJet/Challenger/Global series or Cessna Citation series? Thanks in advance for your help! Kind regards, Kuba
  7. Hello, I am creating a freeware 172 model for P3D/FSX/FSX-SE and I am researching good fligh models for study. I was told that Metzger's 172 FDE is the best. Does anyone have his 172 FDE file ? Where I can find it ? By now my 172 has: Model: 70%. Sound: 50%. VCockpit model: 60% Gauges:40% FDE: 0% (reading some PDFs) Thanks in advance Paulo Rio-Brazil
  8. Hey guys. So, it's been awhile since the last time I did a flight on FSX. Between now and then, and HDD Crash and all my data got lost. So, I reinstalled everything, rebuilt my AI Traffic from scratch and I was finally able, after quite a few months, to log some miles on my flightlog Still a long way to go in terms of how much I can improve graphics and all that. So, I took the Carenado Citation II for a bunny hop inside Florida. 10 minutes of Flight. Last minute checks. A blast from the past while we taxi to Runway 8L Sky's the limit B) Very quiet KMIA today Approaching KFLL's 9R After more than 6 months without flying, this was the most decent approach I could accomplish -_- Flare Old style reversers! Taxi to stand And there we are. Hope you them! :excl: Things used: LatinVFR KMIA Carenado Citation II KFLL2008, available at the Avsim library. ORBX Essential+ Overdrive HD FTX Global Base Pack

    Cessna 182S

    Hi all, just want to share some screenshots of the Cessna 182S which has recently been released. More info at the FlightGear wiki page.
  11. I recently purchased the Saitek Cessna rudder pedals from Amazon warehouse deals. I got a really good price on them, but plugged them in and quickly noticed the right toe brake is not working. Everything else functions perfectly. I am a bit reluctant to return them and pay an extra £50 for brand new ones when my instinct tells me this issue can be fixed. Is it worth opening them up and trying to fix them? Maybe this is a known issue that someone can offer some input on? Many thanks Oliver

    Home Cockpit

    Hello, I wanted to share my actual Home Cockpit Project. I think that some of you should be interesting. I'm making a Home Cockpit of Cessna 182/206 for P3D and Xplane. The Flight Desk is made by Ruscool in New Zealand. I make the cockpit in Wood by my Carpenter. The Rudders come from TRC and the Yoke from Flight Illusion. More details in next posts... Here are some 3D views of the Cockpit : I also made a Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/LeNezenLair1/
  13. So I started a journey a couple days ago, to fly from Cooking Lake (CEZ3) to somewhere in British Columbia, Canada. Haven't quite decided where to go, but most likely end up in greater Vancouver area. I figured I would track my journey somewhere, so coupled with screenshots, I'll put it here for now. Anywho, onto the flight. This is CEZ3, small airport in Central Alberta. 1 runway and a float plane base. This is the aircraft I'll be flying, the A2A C172R with a really nice repaint by jimmyrfr on the A2A forums. The photo taken below was on the way to the CYEG VOR, from there I'd be flying an outbound course towards Edson, Alberta. From there I'll head to Jasper and that's where things will get tricky. Mountain Navigation. At least tricky for someone used to punching in FMC details and what not. coming into Edson This was after arrival to Edson and parked at the airfield. I reloaded some scenery and it changed from Fall to winter textures. Strange but not a big deal. I don't really do flights during real time because I tend to get home later, with it getting later in the season and coming close to winter that also means night time occurs towards 6PM local. I flew to Jasper on local time, which of course was 8PMish, so pitch black navigating through mountains and at night. I'll get a shot of Jaspers grass field at the next departure, when I figure out where the next stop is! With the 20 pic limit per thread I'll add more into my flickr and then people can see a few more there, I'll link the album here; https://flic.kr/s/aHsm6RmDs5 For anyone interested in the addons you see here; Simaddons West ORBX FTX Global ORBX Northern Rockies ORBX PNW (later as I get closer to the coast) A2A 172R Rex texture direct

    A little 172 around BC

    Having got checked out in a nice new 172 with the G1000 last week in the real world, I took A2A's gem for a nice flight from Revelstoke to Victoria. And yes, I was playing around with wheel pants and all that, which is why some shots have them and others don't...
  15. Hello i just wanted to ask what gauges i should use on my cessna 172 simulator that i am building. I am planing on having 2 computers so all the stress is not on just one. I am building simsamurai's CS-1 and want to know some options for under $100 USD. <_< Thanks. Progress updates to come!!! :lol:
  16. Coast of Freedom - a place where I feel at ease.
  17. Took my A2A C182 all over the continent over the past month or so... some pictures of that journey. Cruising along the PNW coast Down towards the Grand Canyon Heading to Lake Tahoe A quick stop way out in Catalina before heading east Waaaay east. Approaching St. Barts And heading home early the next morning.
  18. Coast of Freedom - a place where I feel at ease. Full Trip in NA and beautiful winter on cessna 207 and bonus from me) Small bonus

  20. Name: Outerra Cessna C-172 | Upgrades Category: Outerra Videos Date Added: 02 March 2015 - 06:39 PM Submitter: HiFlyer Short Description: Upgrade for default C-172 From Levi Cires Warning 1: The .otx replaces the original plane. Warning 2: The .otx may not install the plane in the right location, if so, you will have to manually install it . The default Cessna is a very nice plane, and I thought that it needed some upgrades. So here are the current upgrades I managed to implement so far: - Landing lights & rotary beacon light | toggle using "gear" key. - Flashing strobe lights. - Navigation lights. - Red cockpit light. - Gauges lights. - Animated Doors | They open when speed is below 0.1 knots, and flaps are extended. - Working fuel quantity indicators. - Working Oil Temperature indicator. - Working Oil Pressure indicator. - Working Exhaust Gas Temperature indicator. - Working rudder pedals. - The nose gear is now animated when steering. - Animated tires. - Ten different camera positions (use 'V' key). Outerra version 0.8.4.5244 More info, Download and Updates here: http://forum.outerra.com/index.php?topic=3208.0 View Video
