  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. The Audio panel Transmit Knob Selector is not actually setting the Simulator Data as to which Com is the Active Com. The Listen Buttons do set the sim Data.. And thus if you turn on both then turn off one the sim will flip the transmit under the hood if the one you turned off was the previous Transmit... Ideally the Knob should be changing The Sim Variables for "COM TRANSMIT:1" and "COM TRANSMIT:2" in addition to setting the LVAR for it's value. Which does work to change from outside controllers!! Sweet but not making the Audio TX switch.... Video Attached.. ComTransmitIssue.mp4

  11. FSH1HH, I did not expect you to vote my post up... But exactly what did I write that was not true? Just write a factual post (thus supported by facts) and it will be here. If you are just here to vote people down I will simply remove those votes. If you make legal threats back them up by a correct legal letter, I assure you we will reply fast. In the end I am just not sure what you try to achieve. Clearly you very seriously you want the hardware. Otherwise you would simply have the order refunded (as promised we do so fast and without questions). You have three options: Stay in the cue and get your hardware as soon as it is available. Cancel your order, get your money back in two working days and buy something else. Start legal proceedings you very well know have no base and will put your order on hold. Keep in mind that option 2 and 3 are not compatible. You are either our customer or you are not. On a personal note. This whole affair is seriously messed up. As seller and distributor we are at the end of the chain. We can sell and distribute what we get. We can share information we get . We have been totally and utterly honest about this because we want customers who thrust us. Sharing knowingly incorrect information would be utterly stupid in this situation. Our sales department is working flat out to reply to customers.

  12. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Nope that’s how it works. The way the logic works for the electric system is that it will seek power from a source in this order. Onside generator, inside (apu), offside generator, outside (external power). You can just remember it with this. Onside inside offside outside. As a result as soon as the apu gen is available with the engines off it will always try to automatically switch to it and stay on it after a flight until shutting down the apu. Now sometimes the ground power will fail as soon as it’s needed. To help prevent a total loss of power I normally turn the APU gen off to make sure the external power will hold then shut the apu down and immediately turn the apu gen back to auto. (Note this is not company procedure just something I personally do to prevent something stupid from happening)

  19. Hallo, Zuerst mal ein gewaltiges DANKE. Dein Support ist super kundenfreundlich und ich sehe auch bei Anderen, wie schnell du und Heinz antwortet. Configurator Programm ist genial. Es ermöglicht uns ein riesiges Potential an Nutzung und ein fast mausfreies Fliegen. Was früher nur mühsam mit LUA und Programmierkenntnissen möglich war, ist jetzt mit ein bischen Logik erreichbar. Danke auch für die vielen Toutorials. Die Honeycomb Produkte mit dieser Programmierung sind wirklich jeden Penny wert. 1 Ausführungsgeschwindigkeiten, hab ich verstanden. 2 sim/cockpit/autopilot/altitude versuchen, und als relative value "+=100" bzw "-=100" eingeben. Funktioniert perfekt. "+= -=" war das Geheimis. das hatte mir gefehlt. Gibt es dazu eine Liste, welche weiteren Zeichen möglich sind? 3 Ist es richtig, daß im Moment nur eine Condition mit einer Variablen verbunden werden kann? Danke Lg Karlheinz

  21. I was surprised to read the comments saying expect altitudes were in the FMS. In fact, if you google FAA JO 7100.9E, which was the FAA's guidance for developing STAR's, it specifically says “Expect altitudes or airspeeds are not coded into an aircraft navigation database". I have flown the Collins FMS's for a long time on a variety of airplanes, and never once has it loaded an expect altitude for me. But, 100% of the aircraft I have flown have had a Jeppesen nav database. If you have a Lufthansa database (like Aerosoft uses), it turns out there is a note that says “Expected Altitude constraints published in SIDs and STARs are often included in the LSY database". So I think the correct answer is, it depends on the class of nav database that you have loaded. Learned something new!

  23. 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. 🙂

  25. I noticed today that the T/O message did not appear in my aircraft. I checked it right after push and start. I had the parking brake on. When I took the parking brake off, the message appeared. Normally I would not notice this as that message is slightly out of view and I check it on the taxiway just prior to runway entry in prep for take off. It made me wonder if this may be the case with the OP? What I did not verify was if putting the brake back on erased the TO config message. I will check that next time.

  27. I have heard about a lot of issues that people are reporting and I don't see. I created a blank profile because 1. I would be sure I would have zero conflicts. 2. I don't use the keyboard much, and literally have only on real command. The other thing I have on the keyboard is saving cockpit cameras, which I don't use much after a first load so I forget about them.

  28. How do you know these are bugs and not just what you are experiencing for some reason? Those are not the same thing. I have zero problems with the low speed behavior/AOA, of course I pay attention and don't let the aircraft get behind the curve at any time. Except in very very bad weather close to or at minimums, I hand fly all my approaches. The ICE detection is a thing, but I just ignore it and hit the warning button to cancel The last one seems to be a complaint not a bug report.

  29. I used vJoy to map in the sim to my cockpit views and then use that other app to bind my hat switch and other buttons on my TCA Side Stick to the vJoy events..... I also use a vJoy button in Vatsim as the button for my Push to Talk ... That way I can have multiple different controllers all able to "trigger" the same vJoy button that I bound in vPilot...

  30. 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.

Nvidia's latest drivers (maybe a few versions before, didnt pay attention) explicitly say this should be turned ON for best performance, especially if you have a later gen card

  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.

  45. In MSFS you can hit CTL+ALT+(Some number key on the top row, not sure of the number pad). This will create a custom cockpit view. I use this to create views of the FMC, Center Console, Overhead panel, EFB, My personal primary flight view, and MCP panel. This I just assign these to my switch. I have zero problems reading anything from one of these views on a 43 inch 4k Monitor that I have located about 3 feet in front of me. I have yet to see a need to manually modify cameras in the camera.cfg file.

  46. Thanks; I have looked at some of those, but cannot really understand them. I'm a pilot of long experience, but not a scientist or a computer engineer! When we got into the big Level D sims, everything worked; and if it did not then there were an army of techs that were summoned, and they fixed it for us! So, what I think you are saying is that those downloadable profiles are not good for anything except the operation of the A/P panel? And if the configurator does not impact XP, what is it for in the first place?? These Honeycombs look great and work great (except for the too-strong yoke force in the pitch axis, but that is already known to be a problem), but it is a first class nightmare to set them up. Three days now and I cannot get off the ground in anything except Aerofly FS2, and that only barely. I have tried "defining" things in XP, but they are erratic and don't always work correctly; ie, they often reverse the direction unpredictably. And for some reason, in the Zibo mod profile the thrust reversers do not stow unless the levers are pulled UP! That is not how I recall it worked in the real airplanes! Is there a step by step booklet (or more likely big book) that lays all of this out completely and at a level that a mere pilot can understand? Conversely, do you know of any "consultants" who could actually set all of this up? Jetline systems set up the sims themselves, but they did not have the hardware to do a set up for that. Looks like a good career opportunity for the adept?
