  3. I own many (more than I care to mention) payware aircraft and even after this short period of time I have to say this is the FINEST aircraft I have ever purchased! Period! Flight model, Modelling, response, Frame Rates, etc. The Best Purchase yet. My first purchase from X-aviation was the IXEG and I still fly that very very often. I have several Airbus from various developers, The TBM, SAAB, etc. I back in the day had the PMDG NG. I thought there would never be another like the TBM but this aircraft is Epic! Kudos to all involved! Yes the manual issue and lack of tutorial like the T

  4. You could be a little more appreciative of the time @Graeme_77 has put forward to try and help you learn this product...free of charge on his behalf. There is not likely to be something like an FCOM found with a real aircraft. Bombardier owns this material and sells it for thousands of dollars, or included with a $30 million purchase. We are not authorized to re-distribute this at all. It's 7,000 pages too, by the way. Along with @Graeme_77, there is also several video series of operating the aircraft complete with explanations by @skiselkov. Most customers have taken to this t

  6. another quick update. Not much has changed since the last report, except I'm a whole lot further along on my MU2 project than I was at last report. X-Plane is still full time work for me and I'm making steady progress towards returning to this guy. Jan is standing by for the aftermath of the MU2 release when we jump back onto this guy full time and work the FMC and other 3D for a good while I'm sure. I suspect we'll be back on the IXEG by the summer months. -tkyler

    This is a 3D model of the Challenger 650 for use when flying in online networks like VATSIM. This will be visible for multiplayer traffic flying type code CL60. Downloading and Installation Instructions: I've made updates to the initial file which were uploaded to this thread. Each update adds a CL60.zip to the download options. The latest release is the bottom one (largest file size) in the list, you only need to download one CL60.zip.

  9. I have a majority of the navigation equpiment wired up and behavior (seemingly) proper with both power on/off behaviors (best I can tell without owning the equipment). Lots of focus on immersion and "natural look and feel" of the cockpit animations this time around. Next up is the quadrant controls, overhead and then autopilot. After that (targeting by end of this month), the plane should be 100% 'operable' and I'll start tweaking the flight model and moving to FMOD sound work and the exterior liveries beginning February. mid-late March is the target!

    Fictional repaint of a Rectrix Aviation CL650, based on their Challenger 604. Rectrix was a Massachusetts based charter company until early 2020, when they were acquired by Ross Aviation. Created using textures from oisin650 and reversethrust as a baseline - used with permission. Hope you enjoy. Rectrix.zip

  11. As far as I know, you don't engage autopilot on the runway, it's a bad idea usually for a number of reasons - I'll attempt to explain why. What I do (and I may not have that completely right and there are variations on the theme here) is before you enter the runway set the heading bug to the runway heading (should be aligned with the runway) and arm the heading pressing HDG. Verify your speed bug is set to VREF+20 (can be different with airline procedures), alt armed to the desired initial climb set by ATC as part of your clearance, or your charts if not in controlled space. You hav

  12. Thanks for sharing your deeply knowledgeable insight Oliver, Not being a corporate pilot, I didn't realize that in the real thing the pilot had to get out of his seat, head over to the touch screen panel above the sink, press an announcement button, and then head back to his seat each time. But now I know ;-)

  13. IIRC the FMS will update automatically, so it’s just a case of winding the altitude up, FLC mode and you’ll be fine. If you need to nudge the mach number back a tiny bit to help it climb that’s fine, but if a bigger change than 0.02 mach is needed then you’re probably asking it to fly a bit too high. There are limiting weights for cruise levels shown in the Ops Reference manual, and I’ve found the SimBrief step climbs to be pretty accurate too. I don’t know the best way to get fuel predictions including a future step, so will do some investigation when I get a chance.

  14. It’s not a manual, but I’ve addressed the fuelling stuff and basic FBO interaction in my first video, which shows the initial procedures, up to the point you’d transfer to the simulated FO. 25 minutes or so that should help any new 650 driver get started, further videos will follow too.

  15. Might change your title To answer your question, I come across this regularly. What I do is the following: Switch off FLC mode to VS and lower it initially down to 500 ft/min. Reset the ATS using the disconnect commands. Watch the IAS indicator, once it gets closer to the actual set speed, you should be able to turn on ATS again. What I find to be the issue is when the N1 cannot be matched for the same speed. I end up in a super high AOA and the speed slowing down as it tries to keep the VNAV. It is similar to previous posts by Graeme where he states "lower the nose

  17. Couldn't we have a least the default XP weather radar? It's better than nothing, it's a bit disappointing that such a great product is lacking this essential tool that we use quite extensively in real life (really love this product btw, specially as I am working on my CL65 type rating)

  20. HI, first thank you very much for this piece of art! after a few flights I have some suggestions to make the experience even better. 1. The checklist It works great, but I fly a lot of legs right after one another and I guess some checklist items are skipped in the second (or later) flight. RIght now I have to go through all of the items again, which takes a lot of time. Maybe You could add an option for starting the first checklist of the day and a separate for a shortened one for the second and following flights. Also, it would be nice to hear the FO reading the checklist thro

  24. As far as the checklist goes, there are several items that are indicated by a "sun" symbol. Meaning they are only performed on the first flight of the day, just skip right over them. It doesn't add any significant amount of time, and it's likely the same process in real life.

  27. We're going to research the amount of wing flex before adding it, if there is any.
    2 points
  28. Hello, The angles of the screenshots and photos are definitely playing tricks on you. The "flex" you are seeing in the first screenshot is heavily aided by the change of angle in the wing's leading edge as well as the low angle of the photo. You cannot directly compare the winglet position from the ground photos taken at around 0° camera angle vs 30-40° camera angle in the airborne photo. Lastly, as Cameron stated, a test was done on a real Challenger 650 which provided no flex. It's a stiff wing! Simmers love their wing flex for some reason but it's just not realistic

  30. I just imagine the pilot and the fueler fighting over the fuel port door. Fueler opens it and walks back to the truck, the pilot closes the door and walks away, the fueler looks back and sees it closed, and walks back over to open it. Rinse and repeat. Fueler radios into base, "the door on the fuel port of this challenger wont stay open, it's like it's spring loaded!" Let the fueler do his job, he'll close the door when he's done!

  32. Zero tests. The aircraft is completely cold & dark, no de-icing required. I am using the FBO fueling process, it's actually faster than the manual process because it's synchronous. I put on ~ 3000 lbs. of fuel and gave myself 5 minutes on "when are you leaving" phase of the FBO experience. The IRS alignment process is 6-minutes, so that's about as fast as you'll ever go through a legitimate take off sequence. In my case, I was 100% ready to go at 6-minutes. Like engines running, door closed, passengers seated. Truthfully, a normal flow for me is 12 to 15 minutes. But I tried a "s

  34. So Graeme, sorry, I have to disagree. Of course this product is state of the art, a exact replica of the real thing. That's the reason why we all bought it! But we also want to use it and we don't want to wait until you publish the next video to get randomly more insight into the systems of this aircraft. When I buy such a great piece of realistic functioning aircraft, I need to have a MANUAL that I can study and learn how to correclty operate this thing. I don't understand why you don't answer at any point to the main question in this threat: Is there a manual coming? If

  35. FWIW, once you get that working you're still going to have problems. Same issue that Vatsim has with the altitude temperature adjustment feature. Gonna need either P2ATC to change something or for Hot Start to add the ability to disable the feature for P2ATC as well as Vatsim. (unless you want to be told by ATC every 5 seconds to expedite your altitude change ) This plane is so far ahead of its peers, there are going to be compatibility issues until everyone else catches up to where the bar has been raised.

  37. That's understandable. If the product doesn't suit the kind of simulation you are interested in then it's great there are other addons that suit your needs better. Simulation isn't a game of "collect them all" - some products fit some people, others don't, and it's great to have variety. Regarding the failure system, some of the testers and consultants have been working on training scenarios, including handling notes and extracts from the abnormal procedures for the aircraft. The intention is to develop this over the life of the product to use the failure system to train sim pilots on Cha

  38. Some work on the HSI simulating the "power on and sync behavior". I never noticed before that the HSI OBS knob is connected to the compass card through a differential...so when the compass card rotates, so does the OBS knob (with this model). You can see this behavior in the extreme lower right corner (copilot HSI) of this video at 2:55. Relying on the default behavior of XPlane's HSI means nearly instant syncing of the HSI, but in reality, these older flux-gate systems take a few minutes to get their bearings and get you a good reading (no HDG flag), so you have to expect that during cock

  40. 12556 kg in X-Plane includes the pilots. Operational Empty Weight or Basic Operational Weight. 12315 kg in the SimBrief profile does not include crew weight. Basic Empty Weight. Pax weights - 58kg - 81kg, with 6kg standard deviation, depending on geographic location Seasonal variation +/- 4 kgs Baggage - 15kg with 4kg deviation. Non-persistent mode gives you the aircraft with just two pilots. It is intended to bring a Study menu visualisation of the passenger distribution and other parameters to the aircraft in a future enhancement.

  49. Updated July 2020, Version 1.33 Hi everyone. While it seems to be the economically "smart" thing to do to NOT talk about the shortcomings of your product (and then sometimes to just ignore the complaints after you cash in the money), we are trying to run things a bit differently here at IXEG. I would therefore like to share a list of things that will NOT be in version 1.3, and also give a little background of why, and wether we are planning to add it later. I will try to make this list as encompassing as possible, if I forget something, please don´t sue me! I will add/rem
