  1. Thanks gentlemen. If you are using XP11 and haven't picked this one up yet - I highly recommend it! One of the best, maybe the best GA to date for XP11.
  2. I've made a repaint for the Aerobask Legacy RG. I haven't painted since the FSX days with Realair. I'm definitely not a pro but I feel pretty good about this paint (even did a custom partial interior). I'm not sure if it's from a paint kit, but it came from a white livery. I guess I'd say its from scratch. What do you think? It's almost finished but I'd like to find a few more mystery parts and give them a splash of color. I also started another paint which is pretty cool - I've added one shot at the bottom Untitled-1 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-2 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-3 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-5 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-6 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-7 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-8 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-9 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-11 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-12 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-13 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr Untitled-14 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr 241db_callsign by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr
  3. Lovely...still my favorite addon of all time
  4. Banking somewhere between Point Magu and Malibu, CA Aerobask Legacy with TrueEarth SoCal Untitled-23 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr
  5. A smooth flight at 17,500 ft (and then lower later) from Oceano Co, CA (L52) to French Valley, CA (F70). This is one of the most stunning addons for XP11 to date - the Aerobask Legacy RG with user paint of reno racer N913MP. I effortlessly cruise around 250 knots while still being very fuel efficient. I depart L52 SE, towards Vandenberg AFB, then onto Gaviota VOR to the shoreline of Santa Barbara CA. I continue east towards Ventura, pass the Point Mugu NAS and then east towards Malibu and the Pacific Palisades. I fly by LAX, pass downtown LA, starting a slow descent beyond Santa Ana. Finally I'm passing Lake Elsinore, and flying overhead Murrieta where I cross midfield at F70, for a tight right downwind RWY 36.

  6. More pics than words in this hopefully brief mini review The Legacy is my all time favorite real aircraft (bias), and thus my favorite sim aircraft (bias). I first participated in the old Realair beta for v1 and v2 of the Legacy in FSX and later P3D (bias). I then participated in this Aerobask Legacy beta in XP11 (bias - so you see lots of bias in this review lol). Plane was released a few days ago avail at Org site. I know there's a few people hesitant to get it because of the glass cockpit...but the Avidyne is very well done, and the text is very legible and smooth. I use the Reality XP GTN 750 in mine, but the default is the Laminar GNS530 (still not a bad unit at all - can be updated via navigraph). The sounds are really cool - lots of little things here and there were coded, switches, canopy, levers, alarms, beeps, engine etc...headset mode too for people that need to communicate online with ATC. It isn't pressurized but there is oxygen available. The circuit breakers are fully functional. There's maybe 8 or 10 liveries (and I've seen some users create a few more). Speed wise and perf numbers... you can easily do 240 KTAS (four miles a minute) around 8000 ft burning 12-14 gph. Engine can still perform quite well at say 17,500 for an enjoyable VFR flight with O2. If that's too fast, just pull power back to 15" of manifold, drop the rpm to 2400, and lean the mixture for 20 deg lean of peak....you'll be in the 160-180 ktas range. Speedbrakes help you slow down (real life typical engine management is decrease throttle 2" in 2 minutes), so you'll need the brakes in flight. Sometimes I abuse the engine a little too much in the sim haha. Approach and landing: 140-180 kias 5 miles out, (flaps 10 acceptable at 170 kias), gear down maybe 1-2 miles out if the pattern, or drop them earlier, and you're doing about 125-135 kias. Short final 95-100, and let the speed bleed off to 85 for touchdown. If light, check AoA but keep touchdown above 75....she'll drop like a bonanza full of doctors beyond that! For this flight I'm leaving and arriving at San Luis Obispo KSBP, heading up the coastline towards MRY (about half way there) and turning east near Paso Robles, and back for a landing at SBP. During the flight I'm maneuvering initially at 3000 msl, then 9500, then 17,500 ft. Gorgeous scenery provided by Orbx TrueEarth SoCal and GPB500 "airport pack".

  7. Neat pics.... I miss that plane...definitely one of the better addons for its time!
  8. Thanks, Orbx does a nice job with the scenery and Torquesim did a nice job with the plane. It's a lot to handle though...you just gotta get airborne lol
  9. A little flight where I blast out of Mos Eisley (I mean Gillespie, CA), head east over San Diego (first pic), turn north then over Miramar, cross the shoreline near Oceanside, then west for a landing at Catalina Island (KAVX) Torquesim Pocket Rocket XP11.50b10 vulkan - it's an experimental and I HIGHLY recommend it...You can easily do 6 miles a minute at altitude!

  10. It wasn't that but it was this: (so this is now fixed!) https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/50522-usa_wind_farms/
  11. Hmmm ok yeah I looked on google and sure enough there are a ton of them. I still think I might have two competing sceneries. Orbx and something else. It's hard to tell from the shot at the top but maybe this one is more clear. There are two sets of propellers on one single mast. I don't think that would be right....the blades would be hitting each other. What do you think? pspwindfarsm2 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr
  12. I'm looking for a screenshot of the wind farm area just to the north of KPSP in TE SoCal. It's a major fps loss area for me and I'm trying to see if I have duplicate wind farms. You can see from my pic that there are taller and lower propellers on these masts and I'm not sure if that's real life or I've got a duplicate scenery file. I've tried tracking one down but I can't seem to figure this out. Thanks to anyone who could screenshot this area on their PC! edit: Just realized the title is misleading. I'm looking for a screenshot from someone with TE SoCal but no other scenery in this area. I'm trying to see if TE is generating all these wind farms or if I have another scenery also doing it. psp_windfarms by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr
