After some experimenting tonight I have found that I believe the issue is with Air Hauler 2, and is not any issue I am having with the aircraft. Failure to use DAVE or the CRJ manager AFTER Air Hauler 2 either connects to FSX or loads you in your plane, results in AH2 loading the aircraft with different methods, resulting in improper load and CG. Say, for example Air Hauler 2 decides to put ALL your payload in "PAX F" section on the default Payload Settings (which obviously should not be used anyways) would create tremendous inbalance and cause the plane and its systems to cease to function properly.
This would also explain why this is an issue that only happens on occasion with me, because usually I remember to use DAVE/CRJ Manager AFTER AH2 connects to my sim, but occasionally if I am in a hurry I may forget, thus setting up a situation with improper load and balance.
So if anyone else has this problem and stumbles upon this thread, if you are using AH2 or another external program similar to it, be sure to use DAVE/CRJ Manager AFTER Air Hauler 2 puts you in the aircraft, and the same logic should be applied to all other complex addons as well since I'm sure this isn't the only plane that will get wacky in such a situation.
Anyways love the plane, and time for me to get off the boards and back into my CRJ!😃
Thanks for the help all.
