  1. Maybe someone should make a list with suggestions what and where you can fly as long as the A320 isn't released yet.^^ Come on, there are soooo many really really good airplanes that can be flown and that still have so many systems and details to understand even if you can fly them from A to B. It really can't understand how on every single page people can ask when it is released!! As if there was nothing else to discover, to purchase or to enjoy in the huge Flight Sim world... One day it will come and we will all enjoy this one, too! Relax and enjoy flying all the other good things, it's more fun than just eagerly waiting for a certain release..

    Detail question about the (old) RW A320

    Yes, that's also how I understood all the other factors that went wrong. But does anyone have a clue what that "landing mode" does or did at a 1988 Airbus A320?
  3. OK, thanks. I've posted it there.
  4. Hi! I have a few detailed questions about the A320 that maybe some of you experts could answer here: By coincidence I just watched a "Mayday" episode about the A320 crash at Habsheim airshow in 1988, one of the few I hadn't seen before. Therein the investigators were first unsure if the "landing mode was automatically activated" because the airplane was so close to the ground and thus "preventing the pilots to give effective climb inputs". Later they discovered that only the Alpha floor activated which led the elevators to pitch down despite pulling at the sidestick - which makes sense at the low airspeed according to the logic of the Alpha Floor. But: Concerning this "landing mode"?? I think I roughly understood how FBW/Alpha floor is working: The aircraft corrects inputs from pilots that would lead to a stall, an overshoot of the bank limits,... by adjusting pitch, roll and thrust so that the aircraft stays within its structural and aerodynamic limits in critical moments, right? ...which was also nicely modeled in the Aerosoft bus and even partly long years ago in the Wilco buses. However, several investigation episodes about newer airbuses led to the impression (at least for me) that the airbus flies and lands itself without any more control of a pilot if it feels to do so. (It even feels a bit frightening when you hear that) What's behind this magic "landing mode" or several other automatition modes in the airbus? Another example is the investigation of the Air Inter Crash at Strassbourg, where the aircraft obviously "automatically corrected some upwinds by pitching the aircraft steeply down". Is it an automatition that is just too complicated and/or that makes too little sense to simulate so that no one ever mentioned it here? Or is it just a (partly) failed try to simplify "Airbus-specific" systems for the average TV watcher? Several other episodes that involved other aircraft types always made sense to me in every aspect from what I know about aviation from my hobby simmer's viewpoint. Thanks in advance!! Cheers, Dominik Edit: BTW, just one more question on that: The pilot claimed they couldn't hear the altitude callouts because of the headphones and because of the aircraft noise? Don't pilots ALWAYS have their headphones on while landing?? And doesn't the aircraft make the same "noise" at every landing?^^
  5. Hi! A more detailed technical question on the A320. Please tell me if this is the wrong place to ask...

    Standby....

    That's fine. I don't care too much about small bugs that require manual flying in some situations. But the worst thing are CTDs or errors that lead to a crash of the sim. That is what's really annoying. Unfortunately from the last 5 flights there wasn't a single one without a crash. Good to hear it is still worked on with high intention. Meanwhile I took a break on the CRJ and I'm flying other aircraft again until the next update(s) come out. Good luck with it.
  7. Tried it again - same thing. It happens again and again under these circumstances.
  8. Hello! I tried to make a flight in which I wanted to replicate an error which I adressed in another topic. However there was a new problem which made - who thought it - P3D4 crash! I took off at YBUD (Bundaberg) Rwy 14, activated the speed mode, then pushed the HDG knob to synchronize the HDG once again, then selected HDG mode and activated the AP. At about 2000 ft I wanted to turn right by selecting a new HDG with the HDG knob. At this moment I got an error message (a little window opened): "Invalid heading hold event" which I only could confirm with "OK" or close the window. However it always came up again in a split second, so that there was no chance to click anything again in the cockpit. P3D froze and I had to close it. What does the error message mean and where could it come from?? CRJ version 1.0.3.0 and P3D newest version 4.1.7.22841 Regards, Dominik

    Crash after issue in FMC

    It's very strange: I also had this issue - also with the newest version in P3D v4.1. However there was no error message, but just a CTD. In my sim it happened while approaching Louisville (KSDF). When I read this, I disabled AI traffic with little hopes. But then it really worked. What's even more confusing: When I switched on AI traffic again, it continued to work and never happend again so far. I hope it stays like that. However: Can anyone explain what AI traffic has to do with the choice of runways in the FMC??

    Fs2crew for CRJ

    In a recent topic they claimed the same: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/526226-aerosoft-crj-700900-fs2crew/ ...which is a shame because this is one aircraft where a good copilot would really be useful in the sim - certainly more than in a 777^^

    No gauges after reinstallation

    OK, I'm gonna try it out. Thanks again!

    No gauges after reinstallation

    Oh yes, I still have v4.0. I didn't see that v4.1 is required for that. Normally I don't update P3D until something isn't compatible anymore to avoid other problems with the existing system. So the moment for v4.1 has come now. Will I have to reinstall the CRJ after upgrading to v4.1? Thanks for the quick reply, BTW!! Regards, Dominik
  13. Hello! I've just re-downloaded and reinstalled the CRJ some days ago because I hoped this would solve some FMS and LNAV issues. Now everything went normal during installation, but when I load the aircraft, there are no working gauges. The engines start at the beginning while both the engine start AND stop switch illuminate. Then they are off as well as everything else. You can move the thrust levers by joystick, you can even taxi (however with the nose wheel stuck at 90°). But there are no working gauges. The switches work without click sound, but have no effect on anything. I've read this topic as the problem is very similar. However I got no error message while installing it. In the folder .../Aerosoft/Digital Aviation CRJ/Logs there is a file called ASCRJ_SimConnect_Log.txt with the content: *** Exception: 5/0/1. Not sure if this is what you meant to check in the other topic. What could be wrong here?? Strange that with the last installation before this, everything worked fine except the bugs I tried to remove by reinstalling it. Of course, no need for you to worry about that over the Christmas days. But it would be nice if you could give me some advice some time after that. Thanks in advance! Regards, Dominik

    Berlin-Leipzig Fehler

    Hallo! Ich wäre auch an der Lösung interessiert. Hab das Problem nämlich auch. Die Fehlermeldung kann ich umgehen. Aber von Berlin aus fahrend komme ich bis kurz vor Berlin-Südkreuz. Dort fehlen Gleise und folglich fliegt der ganze Zug dort beim Einfahren wild durch die Luft und das Szenario ist selbstverständlich beendet. Dasselbe wenn man in Luckenwalde startet. Dort scheinen auch Gleise zu fehlen.

    Köln/Bonn airport preview

    Yeah! I've heard someone else would be working on this airport. But this time I definitely prefer this one! Jo Erlend Sund has absolutely proved in terms of quality, good performance and reliability in terms of scenery design! ...and hey, at last even in great choices of locations!! Looking forward for any new project he starts!!
