  1. Just a few random shots from my approach into Sedona, it really is just incredible how good the sim looks after sunset!
  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. 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.
  5. My first attempt to fly from EGLC to LOWI yesterday was unfortunately cut shot on final approach by a bug with the MSFS Pause Button aka Game Freeze function, as I pressed that the aircraft literally fell out of the sky, just spiraled to the ground. I've always had an affinity towards the larger business jets, so I decided to give that route another try today with the Cessna Citation Longitude. The aircraft is far from hardcore, some would argue it isn't even up to the very basic "Carenado" standards, yet it is certainly stunning visually both externally and in the VC, plus it is actually quite functional and easy to get "flight ready" from cold & dark. Cold & dark at EGLC, the weather was certainly much better yesterday here in London! Unfortunately again no push-back service, I hope this bug gets fixed. There was really absolutely not enough space to turn, I decided my best option was to use reverse thrust to exit the parking position. As they say in German, Not macht erfinderisch! Imagine someone had shown you this image 30 years ago, when the first flight simulators were available, and told you that sometime in the future we will be able to enjoy such imagery on a PC! A RWY 09 departure today, straight out east over the Thames! The clouds certainly look interesting, the lighting is very impressive. Climbing out towards the UK coast, the flight plan has the route set for FL 410. The weather over the Channel was pretty murky, there was nothing eventful enroute, just a permanent cloud cover below most of the time. Arriving over the Alps, the weather seemed a lot better than yesterday. Heading towards the RTT VOR at FL 130. The very buggy ATC kept asking me to descend to 9500 ft, that would have been guaranteed CFIT. Very close to Innsbruck now, the weather again being grey and murky in patches. There is a lot of room to improve the overall mesh, nevertheless the Alps are certainly stunning! Close to the RTT VOR turning point now. Turning south and then west to intercept the Innsbruck localizer. This is going to be a visual approach, autopilot off, flaps and gear down. The hand flown approach was much smoother than I expected, the aircraft handled very well and was not too twitchy. The wind kept pushing me to the left, trying to correct and stay on the glideslope. Welcome to Innsbruck, touchdown right on the centre line, the reverse thrusters doing their job to slow the Cessna down. The sloped runway is subtle and so much more realistic than the standard fully level runways we've had for so many years in FSX and P3D. Quite mind-blowing that the grass in a flight simulator can look that good!
  6. 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
  7. 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/

  10. This is my first forum post, and after a while of searching I felt like Avsim is the place to ask. Does anyone know where I could aqquire a desk clamp for the Saitek Cessna yoke system? I recently have purchased this yoke used from a guy online who didn't have the clamp. Any help is appreciated.
  11. Hello Pilots =) I am a little bit disappointed. I bought the Aircraft yesterday from Aerosoft and installed it. First that i saw - i had to Download Version 1.0 1. Is there no Update for the C208? I got the normal Cockpit Version and not the Version with G1000 So i startet a Flight, working the Checklist. Until Departure everything works fine for me. Now i´m going in the Runway, set the T/O Power and at 70kts i rotate the Airplane. Until this Point everything is O.K. After Lift-Off - the Airplane doesn´t get Speed. I can only climb with 300 ft/min at 70kts, Climb Speed according to the Checklist is 90 Kts. Even if i Level off, i can´t gain Speed. It Holds at 80 kts even when the Flaps are retracted. So first i tried to make the Aircraft leighter, put some Fuel out of the Tanks and reduce the Load in the Aircraft - But same Problem. It also accours if i disable the Cargo Box below the Airplane. Can anybody help? I paid 37€ for the Plane and it is unflyable for me. I don´t find any Help in the Internet about this issue. Maybe here? If you want to see the Problem i can also take a Video of it and post it here. Thanks in Advance - Marci If you want to see the Problem i can Take a Video of it and post it here.
  12. I decided to take take the Citation Longitude on my first flight on a route from EGLC to LOWI. The overall weather in London was calm and sunny this morning, with a few scattered clouds about. With the wind coming from the west, take-off was going to be from RWY 27 towards Tower Bridge. Getting ready for departure, for some reason there was no pushback available through the ATC menu, though clearly the pushback service was lurking about. Climbing towards FL 410 with London and the Thames river in the background. Crossing the channel towards France. The reflective detail on the water looks superb and quite realistic. The UK mainland in the far distance now. Interesting how the clouds along the flight path were changing enroute, little did I know what was going to be lying ahead cloud-wise. Starting the descent with the Alps now in the far distance in front, the weather ahead has certainly taken a turn for the worse! Heading towards the RTT VOR the Cessna was skimming in and out of the clouds. T Turning south at the RTT VOR, the clouds all around are just amazing! Turning west and getting ready to line up with the approach path into LOWI.
