Cessna C210M (2003 Version)


Recommended Posts

I believe that this aircraft was originally made for FS8 and ported to FS9 around 2003. Just goes to show what a great model it is. This flight is mostly over the Pacific and around the Southern Californa area (Cali-Lay). Grew up and still live there, sometimes, when I'm not in Sydney.

Your FS9 looks terrific, Mark. Being an FS9 devotee, I appreciate a good looking platform; you have one! Why try to improve on it when it's so good?


Thanks much and I'm glad that you liked the images!


With regards to innovation and 2D Panels, the idea (for me) is a better understanding of flight and flight systems. Especially from an operational perspective.


For instance, the Cessna Navomatic AF-420A is very unique and Carenado's implementation is quite good. I went hunting around for more documentation and found some drawings which showed a HEADING CONTROL KNOB that selects a magnetic heading or a VOR radial.


With the goal being a better understanding, I wanted to know a bit more about the "OMNI Intercept-TRK-HDG", three position switch. This is what I've learned so far...




From an operational perspective, OMNI is slaved to NAV, HDG is slaved to Heading, or the autopilot is suspended using TRK, leaving you free to move about the sky. The idea being a cool little switch on the VFR panel which has the same functionality without having to open the Autopilot panel.


Weather I create the switch or not doesn't matter, what matters is that I understand the Navomatic autopilot and can create the switch if I find it useful.


With FS9, I have the OPTION to place it in the airplane.







Thanks to Carenado for the wonderful autopilot and the chance to fly something which is no longer used in real world applications.


Hope that make sense!

Excellent shots and I love that wood panel. Jim


Thanks Jim!!!


Boy, John Van Voorhis sure made a great panel, didn't he. All of the great artists in the community and they deserve the credit. Orbix, Cloud9, ActiveSky and my goodness, Aeroworx too. The list is so long that its impossible to tally them all. Opa helped a bunch too, patiently going through video card settings, 10+ years ago, and they still work!


Anyway, thanks and best regards!

Nice set of my neighborhood Mark, matter of fact just drove by Torrance Zamperini Field a couple of days ago.:cool:


Thanks Annber! Appreciate it. Love Venice by the way, interesting part of the strand. Very eclectic and a lot of people for the studios I worked for love to go there. Pictures and Television, Film likes that area....


All the Best!



Edit: Really am losing my eyesight!
