  1. Looks like a great model, but unfortunately it's also the most expensive one that *i am aware of*. Being on a pension doesn't help. At just over AUD$100 it's way out of my reach, and with FS2020 on the way I'm extra cautious of what i might consider buying. So per title, will it ever go on sale?

    X-Plane 10.45 RC-1 Released

    I've never installed X-Plane outside of Steam. There are things i like and dislike about Steam, but their content delivery is usually pretty good. That said i usually try to avoid Steam as it seems they take a massive cut of sales, but in my case when it came time to buy XP11 it was cheaper on steam.

    Cessna 310L v1.1.0a Update Released!

    @Digital Replica Just want to say this has been the best supported and best value for money aircraft i have bought for XP11. The updates keep coming, the features keep coming, you're replies to questions and queries are great and all of this together with a beautiful model come together to make a great product. I'll be recommending this model highly, and am eager to see what you have on the way (That is if you are intending to release more aircraft? any hints?). Haven't flown this is a while, and am looking forward to climbing into it again. Question i have was re the auto pilot & GPS, in the real world does the GPS take over the NAV1 instrument in either GPS or GPS-OBS mode? If so does the autopilot in NAV mode take direction from the needle in the instrument, or is the Autopilot only able to follow NAV1 / NAV2 radios? Cheers!

    Cessna 310L v1.0.9 Update Released!

    Thanks for the reply, a question about the GPS/AP - Does that mean also that the Navomatic will not follow the GPS in OBS mode? Do not have headshake plugin, the oscillations are sometimes worse than others, but can eventually be ironed out. Capturing a localizer seems to be not happening, will test further.

    Cessna 310L v1.0.9 Update Released!

    Hi @Digital Replica Have now got my setup going in my new place and was pleasantly surprised to see the update! All of the little changes bought in this version are fantastic and very much appreciated. The support and communication and ongoing updates, feature adds and bug fixes makes this already very good aircraft a great one, and i would highly recommend it. The previous issue i had with the WX radar not working seems to have gone, might have been an issue with my install. I do see that cowl flaps affect CHT, in my experience it seems i'm never able to fully close them, usually when operating at 10c at sea level and ~ 0c @ ~8000ft. If i do close them CHT temps end up in the red within a minute. This might be correct anyway, but i'm normally used to closing the flaps after cruise is established. I am seeing the aircraft pitch oscillate on autopilot fairly often, should this be happening? I can't seems to get the AP to follow the GPS either in regular or OBS mode, also had the aircraft not follow a localizer even though everything appeared to be configured correctly. Any tips for the above issues? Cheers and thanks again!

    Cessna 310L v1.0.8 Update Released!

    All answers read and understood. I had returned to inform that i was mistaken re the glideslope. KSAN does indeed as you say have a LOC only approach from the east, from the west it has both LOC and GS, and these do function correctly. re 2) Still no luck there, never have i ever seen anything appear on the display aside from the blank arches. I am running XP11r3 - Steam BETA, might have something to do with it? I'm unable to do testing at the moment as i've packed up my gear, and am about to move house, i'll look into it in a few weeks. On everything else, all good, appreciate the great work and how approachable you are, this ads a great deal of vale to the aircraft. Look forward to seeing your future work!

    Cessna 310L v1.0.8 Update Released!

    Hi @Digital Replica Purchased a couple of months ago and quite like the 310L There are a few issues i was wondering if you could help out with... 1) The ILS glideslope seems non functional, testing this at KSAN 1b) The GS flag disappears when on the correct frequency, but when 10 - 20 KHz below fewquency it shows up Glideslope never functions regardless. 2) The weather radar seems non functional, got stuck in a storm, thunder bolts and lightening very very frightening, not even a hint of anything showing on the radar. 3) The anti ice systems are currently non functional, i iced up and crashed before i realised that was the case. Any chance it could be got up an running? 4) Opinion - the reflections are way overkill, i just turn them off, but it would be nice if they are toned down a bit, at at least defaulted as less intrusive. (Both instruments and windows) 5) Gauges, instruments and dials have a weird elongated look, really looks odd and unsettling. Bonus - any chance of a Turbo variant, a T310R for example? Well aware there already is one from another dev, but this package would be a must buy with the traditional 310L and the popular T310R The cockpit looks great by the way, has a real 60's vibe.
