  1. My friends (and I mean that).... I am closing this topic because it is counterproductive and toxic. Most people just seem to add without reading. Even more just start to click up and down votes without reading (I seen somebody come online and giving 9 downvotes in the first 92 seconds he was online). Some of the comments here are simply not acceptable. If you want to discuss things with those words there are dozens of forums on the internet. I will not allow my developers to be ridiculed here. Let's get a few points straight): We absolutely agree that ILS following should

  4. For those having issues with fluctuating N1 and poor throttle response, I am happy to report that this problem appears to have been definitively solved. Apparently the MSFS native throttle axis processing and the CRJ custom axis processing have been fighting each other. Best analogy I can think of is that it would be like when you lower the temperature on your home heater thermostat, and the moment you sit down, your wife gets up and puts it right back where it was. Rinse, lather, repeat... Hans has found a way to give the CRJ exclusive control of the throttle axes without in

  7. This issue is not something that we are going to ignore and we do hear your feedback. With the update we tried different approach to implement the ILS in order to prevent the notorious death dive. But it's clear that this new method still has some problems with accuracy in certain situations especially at lower altitudes. Unfortunately it's not a simple fix but we keep looking for better solution and work with Asobo as well to find a way to improve this.

  11. We've had this issue since the very beginning of testing but since several testers reported that other aircraft have it too, it was considered to be a simulator issue. That's still our stance. However, I'm fed up with this bug and decided to build a custom GS Hold function which doesn't use MSFS's integrated glide slope hold function. I hope I can get this to work over the weekend and send it to the beta testers. I'll let you know if it fixes the issue next week. If nothing goes totally wrong (can you read the sarcasm?), it should be in the first update for the aircraft.

  12. Let me add a quick comment.... Sales for the CRJ are crazy, we have not seen this in 15 years. We were expecting some serious sales but every estimate was blown away in the first 3 days. We could not be more happy. It is really like it is 2004 again.

  13. Hello, Some of you have reported performance issues of the CRJ, especially during climb. Many of you fly with actual weather or weather generated by weather programs and Online. This is great to see! We have checked one more time the flight performance of the aircraft within its flight envelope and with ISA temperature and no humidity, the our CRJ flies very much as the real aircraft versus data we have available. So let me try to explain what may have happened on flights where you have experienced performance issues. I will not repeat the issue of legacy flight model or wrong

  14. Just to chime in as a rated, current, and couple thousand hour experienced CRJ pilot... No offense intended, but it is quite a silly wind noise, and the cockpit does not sound like that. Lots of noise from the packs, sure. Avionics and display cooling fans, absolutely. I regularly turn those off to make a phone call to OPS. But the wind noise in the sim version is just wrong. I'd honestly question the credentials of any supposedly experienced CRJ pilot telling you that it is accurate. Rough statement but I stand by it.

  15. Is this really productive? Users are telling you there's a problem. Pilots are not gamers, pilots are not listening to sound effects they are more interested in the fidelity of the systems. What an SME focusses on is their area of expertise, audio/visual isn't aircrew's specialist area. However... It is mine and has been for over two decades. I get that the packs are loud, I get that the recirc fan is monstrously loud on the flight deck. And I also get that a 500kt wind over glass is going to make some helluva noise. However none of those things happen to sound like a cartoon sound

  16. You are partially right about that. There is a custom logic in place until 1500 feet above the ground. After this, the simulator's GS Hold is used. The reason for this is pretty simple: The custom logic uses VS Hold but this can only be set in steps of 100 feet per minute which is way too rough for the final part of the approach. We brought the issue up in a call last Friday and stressed the importance that it gets fixed in general (not just for the CRJ). So, Asobo will look into it and find a fix, however we don't know anything about a time frame for it. Now you know as much as I

  17. I am typed in the CRJ and I've flown it for years. I can fly an ILS in this plane with my eyes closed (though I don't recommend doing that!) I teach it in the sim as well. There is definitely something very wrong with how this plane flies an ILS. Unfortunately it's not a lottery for me. It never works. Since the last update I haven't been able to get the plane to correctly fly the ILS once. I even tried something similar to what @panda180 did. I used NAV mode instead of APPR in order to only track the localizer and then I used VS mode to maintain the GS. Based on my groun

  18. Some of you have faced issues with insufficient climb performance. There are two issues explained in threads which are icing / using AI and not visual spoiler deployment after using ESC. The following is intended to explain normal climb procedures. From a principal point of view, there are two modes you can fly the aircraft up to its altutude capacity. The aircraft can be flown with VS and SPD mode. Typical VS is used up to FL100 to easier match restriction/targets and ease passenger comford. Passing FL100 you can switch to SPD, dial in 250 or 290 and the aircraft

  20. Here are my two cents. I would prefer the A330 first. Firstly there is a lack of a decent long haul aircraft in the sim. We already have the CRJ and the 320neo for short/medium haul. I also think that the A320 is already in good hands. As someone who has never flown the real thing I probably would not truly appreciate the depth that would be available from you guys in the 320. That said I can understand for a business standpoint it is better to roll out the 320 first because more people will buy it. I am preoccupied with the CRJ at the moment and whenever it comes out the twin otter will tid

  21. There is no dive. The dive has been fixed. The issue is a slowly but steady descent below the glideslope. To the point that the deflection is at full scale before getting to the DH. Not acceptable for a premium aircraft such as this. Well of course you're going to land the aircraft manually. This plane doesn't have autoland. That's completely missing the point. The point is that there is a problem with how this plane flies ILSs. This is not an isolated incident that one or two people are experiencing. This thread has well over 120 posts. This is a big issue t

The only thing I was unable to find was the individual pax weight so I've set it at 185, a number I found surfing the forums. let me know if the links work fine.

  23. Here we go. An RNAV approach with CANPA procedures. For those of you who want to have a chart to help you out I am flying the RNAV 10R at KMRY. Some FAQ's for you. Why did I use the LNAV minimums instead of the LNAV/VNAV or LPV? Because I do not have any vertical guidance. Why did you set your MDA to 1030 instead of 980? So this is probably something most people that fly in simulation only don't know. While you can never go below the MDA on an approach without having either the approach lights or runway environment in sight you can fly

  24. I have done tests with a GA aircraft and the CRJ flying through moderate icing conditions: 8000 ft ISA -10C broken clouds. The GA aircraft lost speed from 110 kts to 75 kts and the stall alarm came on. So the icing builds up weight to generate an icing effect, just like it used to be in FSX. Switching to Icing Failure : VISUAL ONLY did not help at all. Which explains that people are still seeing the effect despite we thought eliminating the effect by changing the failure setting would help. On the CRJ, I took an approach situation : 230 kts, Flaps 1, 8000 ft and broken clouds. AP HDG an

  25. Lol at "professional streamers." The aircraft is fully working, so your "professional streamers" are full of it, as many "professional streamers" tend to be. I would suggest to stop following the "professional streamers" that provided you with this incorrect information, because rather obviously their expertise is zero. Maybe they should go back to fly in GTA5. PS: here's an actual professional streamer (without the quotation marks) for your perusal. https://www.youtube.com/user/filanjix/videos You see that thing that flies and works with no major issues i

  26. Hello ladies and gents of Aerosoft, Wondering if it's possible to get an update on the, uh, update... I see a high level of responsiveness from Aerosoft employees (and testers) saying "yep, your problem is known and will be in the next patch"...which is great, but keeping tabs on what is currently known/being tracked and when those will be addressed as a user is pretty difficult. Currently, I am mainly waiting for fixes related to the throttle (and engine spool) response, and a few other things (e.g. broken ETA in MCDU page). I know others are waitin

  28. As Otto wrote...... without help from Airbus a solid 350 (ro even a 380) is nearly impossible. We would need a pilot to fly all possible profiles to be able to build the tables we need. That does not mean it is impossible, it just means you get and add-on that is not based on predictable tables. And there are many add-ons sold that do not have that. Some are highly rated in the community. But we rather get the source correct.

  29. So as you can see this is my flight from Sydney to Brisbane. I have a 51 knot crosswind from 275 with my current heading of 354. However it keeps swinging left to right. It's actually must worse in game. It's pretty constant, the above image shows my flight on Event tracker.

  30. I'm pretty sure there is a bug but it's a rare one that only occurs after a specific sequence of inputs/actions in the FMS. "I was playing around with the FMS" is not helpful here. It's simple: No information = no chance to receive help.

  31. Being able to fly an ILS properly is a basic necessity in an aircraft like this. If you know before release that your airplane is not able to do this properly, you are releasing too early. And in an unfinished state with known issues. And you should be honest and open about that. Happy that for you, ignorance is bliss. You don't know the real plane, so you are happy with deficiencies. Let's both stay in our lanes, I'll do the real flying and fact checking the nonsense you post .

  32. I discussed the matter with Asobo. What you hear is not part of the CRJ sound package as the wind sounds in there do not depend on the wind direction. This is a layer of wind noise which is handled by the simulator itself. Its being worked on but I don't have information on when a change will be available.

  33. We have just released an update to version 1.0.0.1. Customers who bought the CRJ outside the MS Store (or Steam) can use the updater tool (look in start menu). The MS Store have there own update systems. Any update to any of our MSFS products is provided to our own customer, the affiliated shops and Microsoft at the same moment. Exactly when other stores make these files available to customers is not under our control.

  35. With all due respect, but that is a poor argument when your current PFD text sizes and positions are a fair bit off from 'realistic'. Aerosoft vs Real There is plenty of space to work with to enlarge the selected altitude a bit. The altitude tape font could be larger, same for the speedtape font and alignment next to the hashmarks. And you can see a lot of differences in spacing here. There is room for improvement, and it would not be unrealistic, quite the contrary.

  37. Thank you all, guys. We still have issues to solve and we're all very well aware of that. But now that the two most pressing problems (CTD on loading and dark cockpit) could be solved, we feel a little bit better. And we will solve the remaining problems too! 🙂

  39. Firstly, just want to state how much I love the 700/550, I have had an off and on relationship with flight simulating for some years but I have been absolutely obsessed with the crj since its release. I don't think I have been this enthralled with the simulation experience since I was introduced to FSX at 12 years old. I cannot wait for the crj 900/1000 release and am curious when we can expect to hear a status update about it and perhaps see some previews? I also apologize if this is not the appropriate forum for this inquiry. Again, thank you to the Aero

  40. Just wanted to say 'thanks' to all concerned with bringing us this great aircraft for MSFS. It's still early days for me and I'm a long way from mastering it but I have to say it's by far the best aircraft I've tried in MSFS. It handles so well and looks fantastic from every angle, inside and out. Above all I'm really impressed with how smooth it works, with little drain on my system resources and FPS. Excellent job! Well done and thank you Dave

  41. Just a quick note to say how much I've really been enjoying the CRJ550/700 for MSFS. I've only had the plane dive on approach once, but I've been learning as I continue to read and watch tutorials and it's right up there with the A320Neo as my favorite aircraft now. I'm certain that, as the minor bugs get fixed, it will only get better. Thanks for a great addition to my MSFS hangar. John

  42. What a tough week! Sorry for reporting so late, but here we go. With snow, rain and 0 degrees the container arrived in Paderborn and has been handled in record time. So far, all orders that were scheduled for this batch are ready to get picked up. Please understand that for some customers the tracking status does not change within 24 hours. It was simply impossible for DHL and UPS to pick up all the parcels today. Of course there are some special pickups planned for tomorrow. As you already thought, we could not ship all pre-orders, but we are very happy to be one step further again. Obv

  44. Yes, you are correct. It's the first complex third-party airliner. That also means that most of what we have done, are being done for the first time also for this simulator. So it's evident that there are some hic-ups along the way. But we work very hard trying to identify and rectify these hic-ups to the best of our abilities as soon as possible and also learn along the way.

  45. You and I both, I thought it was strange that the preview section of the CRJ was closed when the 900/1000 is still planned for release, frankly I'm going to be as hyped for that as I was the 700/550! To quote Jaws...... well kind of my VA "is going to need a bigger boat!"

  46. Is there a reason you do not simply pop them up? Even undock? On my screen I can then read the text from a meter away without problems. And there are of course other options, new viewpoints that can make the characters huge, zoom in.... In the end we simply can't make the displays larger then they are and when you use a bigger font the information simply does not fit. All text would overlap.

  47. I’m typed in the cl65 and fly the 200, 700 and 900. In fact I just flew one of the paints included with this crj. There is no wind noise in the cockpit like a door is open, like we hear in this msfs crj. Yes, the cockpit is loud but this isn’t even remotely correct. Just pointing it out. I’m a bit disappointed that aerosoft is dead set on leaving it. It makes me wonder what else is going to just stay. A friend of mine at the company I fly for is a check airman for the crj, another is a sim instructor. We’ve found quite a few things that need to be fixed, starter cutout, auto ignition stops at
