  1. It's not for a single payware ... the automatic Profile switching based on Aircraft alone is worth the price of entry... There are plenty of events even for those that you mention that require access to LVARs or H:EVENTs to control them... especially as they are adding more depth to their custom Autopilot they can't use the standard events....

  2. I am not sure that you are trying to achieve. We do not want people to cancel the orders, why the heck would we want that? The simple fact is that we do not have the hardware we hoped to have. Same for Amazon, same for every single shop. In Asia, in the US everywhere. Every single one we had is being shipped, even our own developers who need to support them have to share them and send them around. Some of our support people do not have them. Please note that we have always tried to give as much information as possible, as honest as possible. Unless we had products to ship we never published when we we could send them to customers. Of course you are upset, you are not the only one. What do you think my support staff is handling? But if you threaten us with legal action I kindly request that you do so how these things are done, with letters from lawyers etc. Will never happen as you even a single 'cheap' call to a lawyer will make it clear that we are not to blame. For sure your post will not get you the hardware faster. Also not slower of course. If people think we are cheating on them in some way, my simple question is why? We got tons of customers and nothing to send them. We could sell 4 containers full as easy as 20 containers. With some serious advertising we could sell thousands more and make a small fortune. But again they are simply not available. The email that was send out was based on information we got late last Friday. We wanted a few office hours to decide how to handle it. The email is clear, open and honest. By god believe me we rather send out boxes than emails! That some of the customers react in a violent way is more or less unavoidable. This is 2021 and things are as they are. But while we feel customers should be free to have their say, when I see unfounded and totally untrue statements about how things simple are and how we react to them the posts will be hidden. If you have any question, any serious comment, feel free. If you believe that there is some big conspiracy and we are hiding thousands of boxes for some nefarious scheme to get a few euros more per box and in the meantime piss off hundreds of customer, you have no idea how retail works. Aerosoft is proud to be open and honest to customers. For good news and bad news. But I'll be damned if I let this company (not public) forum be used to bash us with senseless rumors. Just not going to happen.

  3. There's zero point in preordering a digital download. It's available to everyone at the moment of release and there's no limited supply. For boxed products, it makes limited sense. The days of a nice printed manual are long gone, so all you get is a CD/DVD, the same as a download, although boxes do still sell well in a few markets. You might get it a day or two earlier than someone who orders on release, but then, Aerosoft typically delays that product until after the inevitable first couple of updates/patches or so.

  4. To be honest, at first I was not really interested in the CRJ. But I really wanted to try it, just like a test, a test to know about my real feeling toward this new MSFS2020. I left the sim weeks ago because of so many performances issues with the default liners. So I bought the CRJ... Launched the sim... Learn everything I need to learn about the plane to fly it the best I could. And it was like a dream. Of course there are some little bugs here and there. But really not so bad for me since I didn't know anything about the CRJ before yesterday. But, the performances... It flies like a dream with my old computer... No stutters, no FPS drop, smooth as silk... I have even better performances than with MSFS GA planes. So my conclusion ; thank you, really, Aerosoft, for giving my faith back in this hobby and showing it's possible to enjoy liners in this sim.

  7. I came here to ask the same question. I just tried it with the JustFlight Arrow today, and it's brilliant. Having the GTN750 available (without awkwardly rendering in an inappropriately-shaped bezel) in the Twin Otter would be excellent.

  8. Summary of where I stand now. I've just issued a cancellation request with a UK supplier for the Bravo. Nice for them to hold onto a shade over £250 of mine while I waited on an update from Honeycomb Aeronautical > Aerosoft > UK Supplier on possible fulfilment dates. In short, tumbleweed has been the order of the day from all parties concerned. A lot of faith has been placed in companies by a large section of the flightsim community, and largely this has been let down, ranging from lack of product, lack of update to lack of concern. All of these can be easily denied but they are ultimately and immediately apparent to the customer base. While I do offer a degree of sympathy and understanding to the position that Aerosoft find themselves in, I cannot help but feel that Honeycomb have taken the easy way out by employing Aerosoft as the European distributor. Lack of product = consumers blame distributor, Lack of update = consumers blame distributor. It has been rebutted a couple of times on this thread, but I do still hold the opinion that Honeycomb genuinely do not view outside of the US as an important market. I'd be hugely interested to view the figures on units shipped to EU vs US. It is very easy for businesses to blame the current pandemic but, while horrible a challenge as it is, the world does still keep on turning and Honeycomb have evidenced this by the marketing for the Charlie Pedals now making an appearance. If there is such a massive semiconductor shortage for the production of the Bravo, how on earth are they going to manage the production of an additional SKU to their product portfolio? I'd love to get my hands on a Bravo as I think the product looks great and fills a real gap in the market for the flight simmer. Do I think I'll get one before the turn of the year? Doubtful. Have I lost faith in Honeycomb? Absolutely. I've just placed an order for the Thrustmaster TCA Quadrant. At least that way, I'll be able to get some flying done before FlightSim 2022 lands. Maybe by then there will be signs of a Bravo available... although my guess is we will probably be in the midst of marketing blurb for the Foxtrot.

  9. I would say "don't use the MSFS planning at all". Sim Brief is an online tool that is free (recently acquired by Navigraph) and would give you what you need for "high end planning"... Plus it's not like the in sim ATC is that great anyway.... If you are going to use the in sim ATC then when you select IFR and "High Airways" as the CRJ goes up over 18,000.. just make sure to pick the Departure and Arrivals based on what it is showing so that you can write down all of the waypoints and Dep/Arr that will match the in sim ATC. Then you just manually enter them.... Oh and as an example... Going YOW to YTZ at some point last year the Arrival changed from the ilixu7 to the ilixu8.... but I really can't find what was changed... it's something.. but so small that if I had an older SIM database (like p3D and the RealtyXP GTN750) if I selected the ilixu7 it will be close enough.... All the fun is getting the CDU/FMS all setup and seeing the route work out

  11. I had been having the "throttle bug" intermittently using the HC Bravo, mapping the throttle directly in MSFS. On another thread about this I saw a comment that AS found that the CRJ and the MSFS throttles were fighting each other. I decided to try mapping the throttles using AAO. That seem to fix the issue (I haven't seen it again) as well as providing more granular control and response. From there I mapped the spoiler axis, elevator and aileron. I am not sure if it is a placebo effect, but everything seems to be, for lack of better description, smoother. I seem to recall a recommendation to map axis inputs directly in the sim, but can't find where I might have seen this. Anyhow, looking for input from the experts (you know who you are lol) and anyone else that uses the HC Alpha and Bravo on their thoughts about mapping the axis inputs with AAO.

  14. And that is EXACTLY what we offered to customers! There is simply no way we can cancel an order customer did without his agreement. You threaten us with legal action because we can't deliver. Now you say we should just cancel orders (without talking to the customer) because we can't deliver. Something that is clearly as bad and probably illegal. As I said, you do not understand the legal aspects and are still spreading false and incorrect information. You also managed to get a ton of negative votes, a warnings and some feedback. Nothing of that seemed to make any impression. I therefor remove you from this forum for 4 weeks. Your legal representative can send their comments to mathijs.kok@aerosoft.com I and I will make sure they will be replied too.

  18. I'll second all this. I'm having real joy flying the CRJ. No problems at all. Just flew around southern Norway with 4 take-offs/landings - all normal and realistic if you like. Then took the a/c to 8000 and did clean and dirty stalls....interesting but probably realistic mushy nose drops....having a ball with this a/c Mathijs!!

  21. I think a few of the comments here have perhaps missed the point—through no fault of their own. I flew the CRJ for years so allow me to pipe in. Your concern is valid. There should never be a guessing game. If done properly you should never lose power when switching from the APU gen (or engine gens) to the GPU. Not even momentarily. It's not a lottery at all. If you find you're losing power then you're most likely doing something wrong. It's most likely not your fault though. The Aerosoft CRJ has a minor issue with the AC EXT button that I'll explain. First things first. If the AVAIL light is lit on the AC EXT button then it means the GPU is ready to give power. In order for a smooth transition of power from the APU to the GPU, the AC EXT button must be pressed in BEFORE turning off the APU gen. The problem (that I alluded to above) is that in the sim it's really hard to tell if the button is pushed in or not. In the real plane it's very easy. You can tell just by looking at it. Unfortunately though the sim doesn't replicate this very well. The visual difference between the button being out or in is almost imperceptible. You have to zoom in quite a bit. I usually have to press the button a few times before I'm sure that it's pressed in. If you see a 2mm space between the button and the panel then it's out. If you see a 3mm difference then it's in. That's how minute the difference is. Again, it's not like that in the real plane. Once it's pressed in you can then go ahead and disconnect the APU gen. When you do this you should immediately see the AC EXT light change from AVAIL to IN USE and the power should switch automatically with absolutely no loss or interruption. If you turn off the APU gen and the AC EXT button still shows AVAIL then the button was not pushed in. As long as the button says IN USE then you're good to go. As someone else mentioned you can always verify this by going to the AC ELEC synoptic page. That's the standard protocol on the line. Any time the source of power is changed we check the AC ELEC page. Also the proper procedure to transfer power from the GPU to the APU at the gate is to turn the APU gen on and then unpress the AC EXT button BEFORE disconnecting the GPU. It's not a big deal in the sim but in the real world not doing this can apparently cause arcing when the ground crew remove the GPU. So follow this pattern and you'll be fine: GPU → APU: 1. APU gen ON (AC EXT button will switch from IN USE to AVAIL, this is normal) 2. AC EXT button OUT APU (or engine gens) → GPU 1. AC EXT button IN (the light will still show AVAIL, this is normal) 2. APU (or engine gens) OFF (AC EXT light will now switch to IN USE) Also, if I may add, in standard operations we don't use the APU after landing unless we need it for air conditioning. If we don't need it we will typically leave it shut down until we're about to start engines prior to the next flight. With this method we taxi into the gate with the AC power being provided by the engine gens. Once we get to the gate we shut down the right engine and wait for the GPU to be connected. Once the GPU is connected we use the same method as I mentioned above (verify AC EXT button is pressed in prior to turning off the engine gen). I only mention that for realism's sake. There's absolutely nothing wrong with firing up the APU after landing—or on approach if you wish. It's just not standard.

  24. In this one I make the Radio Panel I published work much better with vPilot/Vatsim for the Audio Listens and Audio Transmits. We Then also Configure the Script Panel to Take the CRJ Transponder Data (Stdby/ALT) and drive the native Sim Data so that the MODE C works automatically with Vatsim and vPilot!! This uses SPAD.neXt as the interface between the controllers and the Sim.... Also includes a "Hack" for Radio Panel control of Nav Radio Frequencies -- NOTE: The RTU will not update but the PFD/LOC and Autopilot NAV is following the frequencies that are displayed on the Saitek Radio Panel..

  27. Well, I just got my Quarterly update email from Amazon, which basically says, they are still trying to obtain the items we ordered in Sept. But no updates from Scan. So I figured that its the same delay with Scan. I have no gripes with the guys here, its a global problem, rather than Aerosoft, so be nice people, we're all in the same cockpit, which is a little cosy. 🙂

  29. I'm so looking forward to flying the Twotter again, it was one of my favorite non-A2A aircraft in P3D. It would be great if it came with support for the PMS50 GTN750. That kind of retrofit doesn't seem to be entirely unrealistic, and the GTN750 is a great quality-of-life improvement for flying in VR, because the touchscreen is much easier to handle than a classic GPS with wedding-cake rotaries (which are a nightmare to use with the mouse in VR). So please, please consider integrating the 3rd-party GTN750. Thanks!

  32. Don’t know what to tell you. With MY system and with MY controllers it works without flaw. My controllers are the HC Alpha and Bravo. Also I use a keyboard profile that only has an assignment for outside view. My in sim controller profiles are blank except for hat switch assignments to view positions. I literally control NOTHING from inside the sim.

  34. I don't think I have ever seen the EFB performance page give me a takeoff trim of 7.2. I have seen 7.0 but it is normally in the range of 6.8 to 7.0 with 6.9 being the most given. That was the one thing I saw here. You will not get a take off OK message if your trim is not set properly, I do not think at least. Also, cycle the spoilers. Depending on how you have them mapped, the plane may think they are deployed even if there is no indication on EICAS, visually from outside or with the lever.

  38. NO the CRJ is not causing the sim to crash. Any and all WASM modules you have in your community folder (spadnext, aao etc) are causing the sim to crash.

  39. First of all organize your community folder. I use Addons Linker to do that https://flightsim.to/file/1572/msfs-addons-linker With this I am able to create a folder and as many sub-folders as I want to organize everything. For example I have a main folder called MSFS Addons. Under that I have a Scenery folder. Under that an Airport folder. Under that an individual folder for the countries where the airports are located and if wanted, like for the USA, I have folders for the individual states. This is one of the primary reasons I do not buy anything I don't have to from the MarketPlace. You lose control of addons. Addons Linker then inserts a virtual folder in the Community Folder as I direct it to. 1. Pre-Update remove EVERYTHING from the Community Folder. I use Addons Linker to click one checkbox and remove everything. 2. Update 3. Start MSFS and check functionality (load into an default airport with default aircraft). 4. When satisfied all is well I add back in WHAT I NEED for a flight using Addons Linker. So I f I am flying from KORD to KLGA in the CRJ, I will NOT add LEBL or the FBW Airbus 5. When I get to KLGA and decide to fly to KDFW in the A20N, I add in the latest release (I use the experimental version) using Addons Linker I can sum this process up as Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS). You don't need to have airports in the community folder that you are not taking off from or landing at. You do not need planes you are not going to use there either. Once I am satisfied that everything is working, I will add back in my liveries for VPilot to use. If you have several hundred items in the community folder and you just move them out and put them all back in and try to fly the CRJ and get a CTD or other weird behavior, you will come here to this forum and throw a hissy fit only to discover what you are pissed off about is NOT the cause of your ire. You are because you are not organized. Now if you have a problem, like let's say "My CRJ crashes when I load it in KDFW using the American Eagle Livery", SEARCH THAT in Google (or this forum or the MSFS forum). Chances are very high that you will find the problem AND solution before you throw a hissie fit here or there. Here is the est part of this. You will spend more time FLYING in the sim instead of throwing hissie fits in forums only to find out the problem is you, not the product you are mad at.

  44. Nav-to-Nav transfer (i.e. automatically changing nav source from FMS1 in white to LOC1 in blue) is implemented, and works well. The important part is to arm APR mode *before* you get to the final approach fix, while still in white FMS nav source (and load the ILS approach procedure out of the FMS DEP/ARR page, sequenced to the Final Approach Fix). Also, since there is some confusion on AUTO / MANUAL on the tuning page of the radios. This won't effect nav to nav transfer that was mentioned above, as long as you don't mess with it after it has already tuned the LOC frequency for the approach. If you are in manual, you will get a message that says LOC WILL BE TUNED, approx 30 seconds before it tunes the LOC frequency. If you are in AUTO tune, it will just tune it without alerting you. No alert, because in AUTO it has already been tuning VOR/DME frequencies in the background the entire time to assist the FMS with computing its position. Here is a photo just before and after auto transfer:
