Today. which was based on the straight-tail fuselage. Today. and aside from its straight tail maintains much of the original V-Tail’s look. History of the Baron 58 – The “Twin A36” The story of Walter and Olive Ann Beech is perhaps one of the best known in General Aviation history. both based in the Northeastern United States. Beechcraft is owned by Raytheon. In almost every respect this aircraft model is identical to the newest BARON 58’s rolling off Beechcraft’s Wichita. Two interesting articles on this company and their amazing aircraft can be found at the links below. Over the years the Baron 58 was produced in normally aspirated. and in 1984 the instrument panel was modernized. The BARON 58 started life in 1956 as the Beech Travel Air.htm http://www.pilotfriend. to the immortal V-Tail V35 of 1947.centennialofflight. still a direct descendant of the original V35. http://www. turbocharged and pressurized versions. and the Baron 58 was born in 1970 utilizing the A36’s fuselage and interior. From their classic Beech Model 17 Staggerwing of the 1930s.Beech Baron 58 0-3 Introduction Thank you for purchasing The Baron 58! This particular Baron 58 is based on real 1999 and 2000 Baron 58 models. Kansas assembly line today. This design was later modified in 1961 to become the original Beech Baron 55. Beechcrafts are among the most recognized general aviation aircraft in the skies today. Beech’s are truly in a class by themselves.com/aircraft%20performance/Beech/Baron. Known for their high performance and rugged construction.

To date. and reducing the number of AI aircraft. it is suggested that you turn on “Tool Tips”. virtual cockpit. For example: A “medium” scenery density setting in the current version of FS is still MORE than a “medium” density setting was in the previous version. Setting radio frequencies is also accomplished with left or right clicks to increase / decrease the frequency value. Computer Performance (Frame rates) Despite the fact that the Baron 58 is a relatively simple aircraft in real life. With a highly detailed aircraft model. all of these features tax your system to a greater degree than previous versions of FS did. The newest versions of FS are more complex from a scenery standpoint than previous versions. some earlier versions of FS had none of these features. often to a great degree. and either a single left or single right click to toggle a switch. Continued on next page. From its textures. you use both left and right clicks to turn knobs left and right. Remember.Beech Baron 58 1-1 Getting Started IMPORTANT INFORMATION Click Spots & Tool Tips The instrument panel on the Baron 58 features a newer method of implementing “click spots” that is intended to greatly increase user convenience and ergonomics. and this may even require decreasing Auto Gen density. for the purposes of FS it is a VERY complex aircraft and panel. this is only partially correct. to AI aircraft. These tips will then appear when you hold your cursor over the various click spots. With the latest versions of FS. and complete 2D interior it will place a greater performance strain on your system than other similar aircraft. and the tips will describe what each click spot is for. Tool tips can be activated under the FS menu under Options / Settings / General. no general aviation aircraft yet released for Flight Simulator has been as complex as this Baron 58. If you find the Baron 58 running slower than you would like. When familiarizing yourself with the panel. In many ways it is even more complex than most jet airliner products on the market. to “Auto Gen” scenery. . it will still be necessary to keep your scenery density at minimum levels. many users are under the somewhat false impression that products such as the Baron 58 should run faster (frames per second) than they might have in previous versions. In general. then you will need to reduce your scenery density settings further. Knobs can also be operated using your mouse wheel. and these features do degrade performance. For those with slower computer systems especially. enhanced clouds and weather generation.

In some cases updating your video card’s drivers may help. Be sure you examine the various settings available for weather (this is under the “Display” menu) and experiment with various adjustments to see their effect on performance. Continued on next page. You may be lucky. AI Traffic: Do not assume that this has no impact. 512mb or more would be preferable. Locking Frame Rates: FS allows you to “lock” the maximum frame rates you will get. you will need to be prepared to turn down some of these display settings and options. turn down the volume of AI traffic. Aside from the advice provided on the previous page. comes at a price. with the most system and video memory. you need no more than this for smooth operation. such settings may prove un-wise. These various settings can be found on the FS menu bar. Unless you have the very fastest computer available. and we strongly suggest doing this. You will need to spend some time “experimenting” with these settings. in order to see what works best with your system. As to video memory. and which settings provide the best performance. and at very busy airports it can. if you have an older computer. but to FS in general. and then fly away with fast. We consider the bare minimum of system RAM for FS to be 256mb. Do not expect to simply push all the sliders to their maximum settings. and this is a MINIMUM. If you are using a particularly old video card. and hardware display settings available in FS. smooth performance. and make changes as required under each of these headings. as always. Lock your frame rates at no more than 30. under: Options / Settings – then look for “Display” and “Traffic”. These notes do not just apply to the Baron 58 product. we would prefer to see no less than 64mb. we wish to strongly caution you concerning the various scenery density. Then again.Beech Baron 58 1-2 FS Performance Notes Getting Started Make no mistake about it: FS is a far more complex simulator than its predecessor. . and your computer can handle this. If you find yourself running slow at a particular airport. enable all options. as on the ground. and such realism. you may wish to consider upgrading it. options. In some cases increasing your system’s memory (RAM) may help. Weather: It’s a whole new world of weather in FS.

Permanently Changing the Virtual Cockpit’s Eye point

While the pilot’s eye point in the VC can be temporarily changed using the keys provided for this in FS, a permanent change to the eye point can be made by making adjustments within the Aircraft’s Aircraft Configuration file (aircraft.cfg). This file can be found in the main folder(s) for the Aircraft, located along the following path(s). FS Folder \ Aircraft \ DreamFleet Baron 58 To change the eye point, locate the aircraft.cfg file in the folder and make a backup copy of it first. Then, open the original aircraft.cfg file in Notepad, and locate the following section, that appears as shown below: [Views] eyepoint =-6.8, -1.0, 1.53 //Longitudinal, Lateral, Vertical (feet) Note the three numbers highlighted in bold. These represent the Longitudinal, Lateral, and Vertical positions of the eye point. You can adjust these three numbers in order to permanently change your eye point within the VC. NOTE: Make only very small changes at first, as these figures are in feet. Make adjustments to the decimal values first, and only if larger adjustment is required should you make changes to the whole numbers. Upon changing the eye point values, save the aircraft.cfg, and launch FS and the Aircraft to see the changes. NOTE: You can make eyepoint adjustments while FS is running. Simply make the changes, save the aircraft.cfg, then re-load the aircraft, and this will refresh the Aircraft using your new settings. Continue to next section

and the selected aircraft can use different panel configurations. Flight Simulator has an open architecture that permits several aircraft to share the same panel. SN3308 Config detects and prompts you with all available aircraft and panels with the “select an aircraft” panel. for additional panel configuration options and tutorials.SN3308 Getting Started The SN3308 is a Flight Simulator compatible gauge and can be configured in any Flight Simulator aircraft panel. Not all available aircraft and panels configurations are listed in the “select an aircraft”: SN3308 Config lists only the unique combinations of both aircraft and panels. The software package includes an easy to use configuration program to assist with integration and configuration: SN3308 Config. 3 . Refer to the additional SN3308 Service Manual (located in your Windows Start Menu \ Reality XP program group). When first started.

In this case the left click turns the item “left” and a right click turns it “right”. 3. They work as follows: 1. a copy of the configuration files (. This type of click spot is used on gauges that require adjustment. such as the knobs. Forward / back scrolling on your mouse wheel will also do the same.ini for additional details and options. Refer to the additional SN3308 Service Manual (located in your Windows Start Menu \ Reality XP program group). The default settings are listed in several files located in: [fs9]\RealityXP\Common\Settings\ For each customized aircraft and/or panel. 4. a left click will accomplish one task. Section RXPSANDEL. first in the panel folder. while a right click will accomplish another. then in the aircraft folder and lastly use the settings from the Reality XP Common Settings folder. Example: For a toggle switch with 3 positions. General features All of the Reality XP gauges and controls utilize a relatively unique implementation of click spots. while a right click will move it in the opposite direction. As your mouse cursor passes over a click spot on the panel it will cause it to turn from an arrow cursor into a “hand” cursor. Tool Tips By turning on FS “Tool Tips” you will see descriptions of these clicks spots when your mouse cursor is placed over them. but instead will feature separate functions for the left and right clicks. There are no + or .SN3308 Configuration File SN3308 Config provides a graphical user interface to most of the settings provided for the SN3308XP.

Popup: The click spot toggles the popup window. The regular functions of the Sandel SN3308 unit are described in the “The SN3308 EHSI Pilots Guide” downloadable from the Sandel website. SN3308 Config automatically configures the click spot for proper operation. 5 .SN3308 Operation with Flight Simulator This section covers detailed information about how to access the enhanced features the gauge offers when running with Flight Simulator. 2. Special Click spots 1 . These settings are described in the SN3308 Service Manual and the SN3308 Config Application.INI file.Navigation Device selection: The click spot cycles the available navigation devices when clicked with the right mouse button. Its operation is similar to the Device Select Switch Gauge or the Navigation Device selection in the Options menu NB: The functions referenced above depend on settings in the ini file. The Left and Right mouse buttons operate two different popup idents configured in the RXPSANDEL.

When the SN3308 starts it automatically deselects “Simple VOR Compatibility” for proper operation with the GPS. Due to Flight Simulator limitations. The entries in the menu are as follows: 1. When using a panel with multiple GPS sources like a Reality XP GNS or Apollo. In addition to selecting the navigation information source for the gauges to display. Simple VOR Compatiblity: some VOR gauges require this option to be checked to display the information from the Reality XP GPS source. Flight Simulator is originally designed to work with a single GPS source. Avionics Database The SN3308 comes equipped with a complete Navaids and Airspace database. this selects the device driving the Autopilot (GPS Steering). When a Reality XP GPS is loaded. The simulated version does not differentiate Intersections between SID and STAR. the following differences exist between the real SN3308 and the simulated version: • • • The simulated version does not differentiate airports between CIVIL/MIL/PRIV. the Flight Simulator Options menu displays an additional “Navigation Device” selection. and some advanced EHSI/EFIS gauges require this option to be unchecked to display the correct VOR information. The simulated version does not differentiate NDB between OM/L PWR/H PWR 6 . FS or Reality XP GPS: selects the active GPS data source.SN3308 Knobs and mouse interface A unique mouse handling system controls the simulated Sandel knobs: Knob rotation • • • Left mouse button: turns the knob counter clockwise Right mouse button: turns the knob clockwise Mouse wheel: turns the knob in both directions Navigation data and Flight Simulator The SN3308 is designed to connect to a single GPS1 source. 2. a special click spot permits changing the GPS source and connect another one to the SN3308.

Note that the factor affecting the performance the most is the Cloud Draw Distance. 7 . This greatly enhances the experience. it is recommended to set the following parameters in Flight Simulator Option/Display/Weather settings: • • • • Cloud Draw Distance: from 40 to 80nm 3D cloud percentage: 100% Cloud detail: detailed clouds Cloud coverage density: a minimum of Medium When 3D cloud percentage setting is 100%. The other settings do not affect the number of displayed clouds. This greatly enhances the capability of the SN3308 to detect water in the distance. They only affect the complexity of their displayed shape. it forces Flight Simulator to exclusively use 3D shaped volumetric clouds. For best results. Stormscope Detection: the SN3308 detection level is directly affected by the number of 3D clouds simulated and displayed. which exponentially affects the number of displayed clouds. For best results. Set “detailed clouds” to a minimum setting of medium as this forces Flight Simulator to display the cloud shapes closer to the actual weather condition it is trying to simulate. the better the detection in the large scales. it is recommended that you understand the following features and limitations: Stormscope Range: the SN3308 detection range capability is directly affected by the Flight Simulator “cloud draw distance” setting.SN3308 Flight Simulator Weather and Stormscope The SN3308 is closely integrated to the Flight Simulator Weather engine simulation. The greater the Flight Simulator range.

The type of information is selected with the typical FS Nav/Gps switch. CDI deviation. The following diagram shows the basic Flight Simulator structure. cross track etc… The Reality XP technology enhances the basic capabilities to offer realistic options to the virtual pilot. and the enhancements introduced with the Reality XP solution: 8 . VOR: related to VLOC type of information such as signal strength. GPS: to display GPS only information. 3. 2. HSI: to display both VLOC and GPS information.SN3308 Reality XP technology Gauges made with the Flight Simulator SDK (Software Development Kit) can only access three basic sources of information: 1. like desired track.

Example: If you load 75 gallons of fuel into the Left Wing. The vast majority of General Aviation aircraft cannot carry full fuel and full seats / baggage. then you should also load 75 gallons of fuel into the Right Wing. Please take note of the following weights. if you are sitting in the left seat. you will not be able to carry full fuel. With its long-range tanks. It is suggested that you load the aircraft “evenly” from a lateral (left / right) stand-point. more so than one would experience in a real aircraft. as this can create an unrealistically heavy wing.Beech Baron 58 6-25 IMPORTANT NOTES Payload Capacity Check Lists & Performance Charts Weight & Balance We have learned through experience that a minority of Flight Simulation users. representing an aircraft with above-average equipment installed) Maximum Ramp Weight: 5524 lbs Maximum Take-off Weight: 5500 lbs Maximum Landing Weight: 5400 lbs Useful Load: 1517 lbs Maximum Fuel Weight: 1200 lbs (200 Gallons) Payload with Full Fuel: 317 lbs If you plan on flying with more than one adult passenger (aside from yourself). especially the “Payload with Full Fuel” figure: Empty Weight: 3983 lbs (This empty weight is a real-world weight. Otherwise. who are not experienced in real world aviation. with its optional 200 gallon fuel tanks. ensure compliance with the center-of-gravity envelope as is done in the real world. and should plan your flight accordingly. You should also ensure that fuel is loaded evenly between the wings. and carrying this amount of fuel is unnecessary. Loading Restrictions – Keeping things in balance Flight Simulator often exaggerates the affects of loading. are under the impression that General Aviation aircraft should be able to carry both full fuel. the Baron 58 has range capabilities that will often exceed the average flight you plan to undertake. and this is certainly the case with the Baron 58. . Avoid use of the Cross Feed feature. and full seats and baggage. place a passenger of near equal weight in the right seat. Thus. This is rarely if ever the case. This often results in heavy wings and a feeling of imbalance when the aircraft is not loaded evenly.
