Thread: New to X-plane, GA suggestions?

  1. Default New to X-plane, GA suggestions?

    Does anybody have any recommendations for any good GA fast single plane for XP11? I purchased it some weeks ago, and I have been flying with the default C172, but I'm looking for something faster.

    For reference, in FS9 and FSX I use the Carenado Mooney. I could do the same for XP11 (there's already one), but I'd like to keep myself to freeware by the moment. Any suggestions?
    Best regards,

    Did you try the Columbia 400? It is a really nice aircraft. It isn't as fast as the Mooney but faster than the C172.

    Hi.
    Do a search for Hold my beer SR22, if you have good system that is one of the best singles for XP.

    Here is some additional info to get you started.

    Quick, in the dark, startig procedure.
    Starting SR22T G6.
    After getting some questions about this acft, on how to start it, and I did not have it, I decided to download it and see how to do it.
    After spending over an hour of trying to get it started, and had some choice words for the designers, in multiple languages to make sure they get, I know the acft got it because it turned red, maybe with a little help from Photoshop. I could not find the key, or any indication of where it was in documentation. Back on the WWW found a reference to it and after clicking all over the creation in the complete darkness I finally found it. It looks like I am not the only one that had problems with it and I decided to write this procedure, in the hope that it helps others.
    In some cases in ver 1150 / Vulkan, if you can use 1141, where you have a brighter cockpit, it may be completely dark inside the cockpit, just follow the text, blindly, to get started.
    This is Not the proper procedure / sequence for Real life / proper start but the easiest way to get this acft started with minimum frustration.

    1-Get Key in the ignition, Scroll down (down View or Right Click and hold) as far as you can and Click in the middle, console should open and the key is way in the back (red dot), click on it, it will place it in the ignition, click on the cover again to close console.
    2-Remove all covers, blocks... Scroll about half way up and Click on the Tablet, Balance Icon and Click on all the Green active areas to remove all. If you miss any it will Not start. You may want Settings > Both tanks also? Make sure at least one tank, Left, is selected and Nosewheel Steering.
    3-Mixture Rich, scroll just below the instrument panel and Click on Mixture and Throttle to full forward.
    4-Ennable Battery and Generators, Avionics, Strobe, Click on the 7 switches from the left.
    5-Enable Fuel pump, 2nd switch from the right, it will start without it also.
    6-Ignition Start, click 3 times on the switch and then hold for start, throttle should be full forward for best results.
    See pic with arrows below how to set the switches, part of Center Console, Power, Mixture...

    Was it worth the effort? At first I was not impressed but after I made some mods to Paint, way too gloomy for my taste, Glass, .acf it turned out fairly well. It has a pleasant, somewhat realistic flight dynamics behavior, you can actually fly it with the ruder only just like the real thing, and if you can put up with all the shenanigans of starting it may be worth the effort.

    Open the Weight’n Balance App on your tablet. Remove all outside elements
    (Tiedowns, Covers, Chocks,...)
    2. Set your desired fuel and payload. Take care of the CG.
    3. Remove the CAPS cover right above your head and pull the
    “ Remove-Before-Flight ” pin.
    4. Open the Energy App on your Tablet and make sure the batteries are full. If needed,
    recharge them.
    5. Make sure all Circuit Breakers are pushed in (we want no red)
    6. Turn on Bat 1 , Bat 2 and the Avionics
    7. Enter a flightplan or use the CoreFlight App on your Tablet to send a flightplan via
    bluetooth to your G1000.
    8. Are you in Icing-Conditions? If yes, open the Maintenance-App on your tablet and
    select Ground-De-Ice.
    9. Strobes and Nav-Lights on
    10. Turn on the Fuel Boost Pump
    11. Mixture Lever full forward
    12. Throttle full forward
    13. Fuel Pump Boost
    14. Throttle ¼ inch open
    15. Turn the Starter key to Ignition
    16. Pull back the throttle to 1000 RPM and lean the engine.
    17. Turn on Alternator 1 and 2
    18. Turn on Pitot heat if required
