  1. You can hear it with or without headphones as it's quite loud. It's a very distinctive thump from the gear unlocking and a very significant increase in wind noise.
  2. Looks quite centered to me. In the real world you'll nearly never have it 100% centered due to winds, slight differences in thrust from both engines, slightly more drag from one side due to whatever reason, and so on. Also make sure that your rudder and aileron trims are neutral. But yours looks about as centered as it will be. If you look at a photo of mine from last year you can see that it's not perfectly centered either. Yes it's a single cue but it's the same principle
  3. Yes, I get the exact same thing... The real aircraft behaves completely in the opposite way You can watch any youtube video of the 700, 900 or 1000 and you'll notice that the PF will pull on the stick to bring the nose down gently. Side note, after the nose wheel has settled it's good practice to push the stick forward, but only when the front gear is on the ground, not before.
  4. I love this aircraft but I'm sorry to say that the landing behavior is quite far off from the real CRJ. In the real aircraft you should never push the nose down to settle the nose wheel... The aircraft has a natural pitching down tendency and you will have to slow down that tendency by pulling back on the stick and the reversers can be used without a problem before the nose wheel touches. It might slow down the pitch down moment but I can assure you that it will not make the aircraft cartwheel. All my landings in the real aircraft have been done that way as that's how we are taught. The FCOM
  5. Yes, I remember a Captain of mine back when I was doing my line training had said something similar when we were in TFN. I still remember trying to insert flex 50 like 5 times before he told me the reason why the aircraft wouldn't let me 🀣🀣 TFN being at 2000 feet, it makes sense πŸ˜„
  6. Yes Flex 50 is the maximum for the CRJ 1000, but sometimes the aircraft won't let you insert 50 and will limit you to Flex 48. Happened quite a lot in Tenerife North (TFN).
  7. I just pulled the table out of my QRH 1. Even though I only fly the 1000, I doubt that the 700 is much different in terms of how the flex works. I'm no Bombardier engineer so I can't explain how the computer works out the flex, I just fly the thing, but one thing is for sure when you flex you simply can't have a N1 percentage that's higher than TOGA. The only way to have a higher percentage than TOGA is to push the throttles to MAX power and that's reserved for wind shear warnings. Just my 2 cents
  8. Hi Canonal, I just read your original post and I have to agree with you that it's wrong. If you set a flex temperature, your N1 percentages will be reduced as you are indicating. The higher the flex temp, the higher the thrust reduction. I've posted a CRJ 1000 table to compare.
  9. Yes it does work, but the R FUEL LO PRESS / L FUEL LO PRESS appears instantly which has never been the case for me in the real plane. It normally took a good 5 to 10 seconds, and with one specific aircraft it actually took close to 1 minute each time. As a matter of fact it can take up to 2 minutes according to the manual, and if it doesn't appear within those 2 minutes the manual actual states that you have to dry motor in order to force it.
  10. No need, the CRS selection is automatic as Svaly said. And yes I'm lucky enough to fly the real thing, only the CRJ 1000 though... They're wonderful airliners, just a little nose heavy on approach, but apart from that they're perfect to me
  11. LOC WILL BE TUNED appears when your radios are in MAN. Basically the FMS will perform the NAV to NAV transfer and this message will appear 30 seconds before the FMS tunes the LOC frequency. If on the other hand you get the CHECK LOC TUNING it’s because the FMS cannot tune the NAV radios and the NAV to NAV transfer will not work. In order for the NAV to NAV transfer to work the aircraft has to be within the terminal area of the destination airport, a localizer based approach is entered into the active flight plan, and you have white needles (FMS) selected as the source on both the Cap
  12. We do it as well for the CRJ 1000 on the first flight of the day. I tried it in the Aerosoft CRJ and it actually appeared to work. Maybe I read the EICAS wrong, will try again tomorrow.
  13. Hi guys, I just noticed that the XFR won't activate unless the FDs are on which isn't correct. You can turn it on with or without the FDs. And as a side note which is purely cosmetic, this CRJ is sporting the "Airbus style" double flashing strobes 😁 CRJs have a single flash type strobe πŸ˜‰
