  1. Arrival Munich...a new Aircraft & Airport have joined the fleet. Sorry about the speed brakes not being retracted, new aircraft...yah, read the checklist! Thanks for viewing & commenting, Darryl
  2. There are already a few nice video reviews out from Carenado's latest payware addon, the C337 Skymaster. I've always liked screenshots though. So here are some of my thoughts along with a few simple liveries I've done - most of which are just changing colors to match real liveries, with some additional texture tweaks. I don't many words to say. I do like the product and I think the asking price is reasonable. I think Carenado started pricing too high initially for MSFS addons. I believe I paid about 35 for the Mooney (which remains my favorite - especially with this Turbo mod: https://flightsim.to/file/21351/mooney-m20r-ovation-tubo-mod ). This C337 comes in at 25 USD which is fair. The C337 Skymaster is a non pressurized, normally aspirated piston twin. There are variants around the world, pressurized and or turbocharged. There are some with a 3 bladed prop - there are also a few rare turboprop versions. Many people also know of the O-2 - the military's version of this aircraft which was used frequently in the Vietnam era for forward observation. They were also armed with rockets and occasionally small bombs. California Department of Forestry uses the 337 for aerial firefighting. I've even seen a version on floats! The downward visibility from the cockpit is very good - and this is relatively quick plane without a wing to inhibit your view. It's a perfect plane for flight in the sim. Flying it yields a decent feel - not that I've ever flown a real Mixmaster. I have now quite a bit of time to hand fly the 337. I still feel it's slightly underpowered. Carenado charts say about 168 ktas at 5000, ISA, gross weight with 2600 rpm. I can't seem to get much above 160 ktas. I may attempt a turbocharged mod for this aircraft. It does appear to hit its fastest speed near 5000-6000 ft. The aircraft comes with a GNS530 but also an option of the GTN 750. Meaning you can use the PMS version or the TDS GTN xi version (but you essentially require a 2nd monitor or hardware unit to manipulate the GTN). I know PMS is actively developing a version based off the WT G1000 Nxi's flight planning system. I also created a relay mod for the TDS unit in the C337 (which places a version of the TDS GTN Xi in the virtual cockpit) and it is displayed below in my shots. Carenado have also added a weather radar pod. Users of the old FSX and later P3D versions will feel right at home in the cockpit. Not much has changed haha... the pixels are a little clearer now though in MSFS. I have read that there are some difficulties with some of the knobs and switches when in VR mode. I have yet to try VR in MSFS though. I am not particularly in love with the sounds on this addon. The cruise sound almost sounds just like FSX. I feel like with the new tech in MSFS you should get a different sound when panning external view (mine nearly sound the same). Idle sounds and startup are pretty good though. So maybe I'm not loving the addon as much as say, the Kodiak, but it's got great cockpit visibility and flies reasonably quick. The landing gear takes a little while to come down, don't forget it when you're coming in on a short approach haha! 1 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr 2 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr 3 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr 4 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr 6 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr (Coming out of C81 airport - amazing freeware on flightsim.to) 7 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr This was also on of the rw paints I've done 8 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr 13 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr A retro green I found on an old plastic model box 9 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr N69S - cool tail number! 10 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr The old farts around here (I mean experienced amazing people haha) seem to love the 1970's Retro paintjob 11 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Another real world one (real ones has blue on the bottom of the vertical stabs - I may address this at some point) 12 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Default Cockpit cockpit1 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr GTN setup (note this is my TDS GTN Xi relay mod - works almost like the old RXP/Flight1 versions for P3D etc) cockpit2 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Decent panel lighting (panel floods and gauge backlighting are dimmable - overhead is on/off) cockpit4 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Tablet tucked in lower right pocket of cockpit gives the usual options, chocks/towbar/cowl plugs - plus controls GTN/GNS switching and checklists. ground1 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr This one's a simple color swap from the default - you can change the tail number to anything you want in the sim or by editing the ATC ID line in the aircraft.cfg ground2 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr ground3 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr sunset1 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr sunset3 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr
  3. It's well below freezing on the surface and in the air. It's cozy in the cockpit though as I depart Sawyer Michigan towards Beaver Island (just west of the famous Mackinac bridge/island).

  4. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ Love this situation what is looking like we have it here at my home ( deeper area non snow, higher area some snow ) at the moment an that is Live Weather - just like real live at my area.. cheers πŸ˜‰
  5. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ On Friday I bought the CDU from Aviaworks for the Aerosoft CRJ, just great to fly on the Tablet with a free CDU - love it this way, also the MCDU from Flybywire and both works great ! πŸ‘ From last flight with a CRJ Lufthansa - ESKNEDDS.flp.. cheers πŸ˜‰
  6. Aeroflot & Moscow...a great-looking Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport by Drzewiecki Design. These guys (developers) are really on their game! Thanks for any comments made, Darryl
  7. My plan was to fly towards canada or the USA. But Navigraph and Simbrief had some kind of server problem the time i tried to make my departue, i changed plans and did some pattern work at Keflavik. The last of the 3 worked in fact without AP and ATHR πŸ˜‰ The Patterns Worked quite well without help of the AP and ATHR
  8. The FBW Airbus has the ability to sync the MCDU Flightplan to MSFS, so even you choose only a departure, you can get a IFR clearance. This works well, at least on my side. Only downside is that you only get the initial climb altitude, and no further instructions to climb. So you have to ask ATC. The other way is to export the simbrief Flightplan to MSFS and import it in the Worldmap. This way you also get instructions to climb to your cruise altitude. I wonder if you can have sync on and also put the Flighplan in the worldmap. And what happens when i change the STAR in the MCDU. Will ATC notice and act accordingly. Because i noticed when all is set up right, the ingame atc is not that bad at all. It also pay attention to alt and speed constraints. Anyone who tried sync on and import Flightplan in Worldmap and afterwards changed STAR or Approach? Regards
  9. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ I leave the words - enjoy.. cheers πŸ˜‰
  10. Zurich Airport & City after an 180Β° turn from Rwy 34 on a Swiss flight to Paris CDG. Thanks for viewing and commenting, Darryl
  11. Flightbeam shared a short video of their brand new VDGS customized for MSFS. Designed by Flightbeam will implement this feature in all of its airports. The first airport to have the new Visual Docking Guidance System (VDGS) will be Auckland International Airport (NZAA). https://www.flightbeam.net/post/vdgs-feature-preview

  19. Got these birds done in a jiffy as well - at flightsim.to I really love it in the R44....look super sharp. The H125 is still in beta so I presume they'll address gauges and interior textures in future updates.

  20. A compound flight from Ranger Creek 21W to Orcas Island KORS in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Flying the SWS Kodiak 100. I dodged IMC leaving 21W and picked up an IFR with Seattle Center as soon as I was clear of terrain and high enough for radio reception. Routing: 21W SEA V23 HUH KORS / RNAV(GPS) 34 via CVV (originally planned RNAV 16 via HUH, for winds) This aircraft definitely captures the hearts of users who seek realism - especially in the flight handling arena. I've found the ground handling to be the best I've seen in any sim. Inertia feels spot on and the way the plane reacts to control inputs also feels quite believable. I think it's the best addon for MSFS so far. I enjoy the soundset as well - the beta when the prop changes pitch angle is spot on. The little clicks of the switches are subtle but perfect. They recently released a small update to address the initially excessive torque on takeoff as well. Aside from superior flight dynamics the look, IE textures, and modeling is exquisite. It seems to be one of the first addons to look like the Asobo default aircraft. Isn't that weird to say? We know that Asobo used handheld high-end 3d scanners and wow you can tell the difference compared to earlier sim versions. Anyway the texturing in the Kodiak is sublime - I feel as though I could just hop into the actual cockpit and feel right at home after using the sim for an hour or so. The avionics are complete, especially in the navigation realm, when choosing the WT G1000 Nxi - free from the Marketplace. They modeled ESI500, the backup instrument on the far left of the cockpit, as well. Environmental controls are on the lower right (in case your toes get too cold haha). It's just a complete package - you'll want to invest in it for sure! I found cruise speed to be around 140-150 ktas down low and 170-180 at 12000 ft. And your stall speed (47 KIAS) with full flaps, can allow for very short fields on unimproved terrain. Thank you for viewing! The murk is real - hard to believe I got out VFR!
