Just food for thought....would like to see a Light Sport aircraft for slow flight VR simulation....see photos of Glasair's Merlin....Cruise a 105kts ( max speed 120kts) with range of 650 nautical miles! Glass cockpit and stick.
1) Regarding the G1000 & Ovation 3 and locking altitude/course....I did not turn on the AP switch! Now everything Works great! 2) Also, notice that the throttle (manifold pressure) at cruise must be reduced to ~ 20.0 inchs @ 2400 RPM....see photos...speed at 183 knots in yellow! Looks like you need to tune the CRUISE-throttle settings.
3) The ovation is my favorite GA simulation aircraft in XPLANE11 and its the most fun to fly !!!!
I've implemented the update to Ovation 3.....installation went great. However, I was having some problems with the G1000 GPS locking on to altitude as well as course? Not sure what was happening...seemed like buttons did not activate correctly .
However, The Ovation 2 is working GREAT with no issues with Navigation.
This is one of my favorite aircraft to fly in XPLANE11....can't wait to see the released product!
The exterior looks great, but i do wish the interior looked a little bit more like the ones in the newer mooney's. The 2018's feature a beautiful black panel with the G1000, as well as a black and tan interior which looks really sharp.
The exterior repaints are awesome. Very modern, and very sharp. If I want liveries like that on other planes I usually have to make them myself.
Optically: the front, more powerful sound especially when the plane is departing (reference: the JF Arrow III), vibrating static dischargers, scratches and dirty streaks in the cockpit windows, logos on the tyres - in one word: orientating towards the above mentioned plane. There is no better example at the moment in my eyes! ;-))
For the information of all, my post on my problems I experienced with the 2.0.5 update were solely caused by me. Lesson Learned: I have two email accounts and used the wrong one to activate my license...all problems I was having were resolved when I used the correct email account for licensing. Thanks to Cooper for his great assistance.
