  1. I will update to l.0.6 and see what happens. My P3D v4.2 has only the client updated. I use Saitek yoke, throttles and rudder pedals and SPAD Next. In SPAD Next I use the simconnect profile.
  2. Recently I had instances mid flight with total loss of aircraft power and the ADG deploys with the whiring sound. Flight plan is lost in the FMC. I am able to restart the engines mid flight and restore power, but I cannot stow the ADG via dave or the cockpit lever. I also have to re-install the flight plan to regain Nav data. Very annoying. It happens out of the clear blue without any input from me. No keystrokes or view changes and no input from my controllers. It does not happen all the time, about every 7-8 flight. Flying p3dv4.2, FSUIPC without any assignments.CRJ is version 1.05 just reinstalled from the latest download.
  3. You need P3D v4.2 . does not work with v 4.1 Update your p3d client to v4.2
  4. I use Simbrief for all my CRJ flightplans without any problems. Here is how I do it. I generate the flightplan normally with Simbrief and then analyze the route to make sure it is valid. Then I select "Generate OFP" Then I click on "download FMS" button which generates a new page of options. Click on the "download" button for the Aerosoft CRJ. A new box will appear at the bottom of the screen with options to "open" "save", or "cancel. Do not click on any of these but rather click on the up arrow next to "Save" which will give you the option to "Save As". where a new explorer window will let you navigate to Documents>/Aerosoft/Digital Aviation CRJ/FlightPlans. Save it. The flightplan will be saved in the format EGLLEHAM which is exactly what you will enter in the flightplan space in the FMS. Hope this helpa
  5. First press Button 1Left to enter the cordinates into the scratchpad, then press button 5Right to enter these coordinates into "set pos" field. This tells the FMS it is OK to begin programming. Then enter the airport in 2Left button
  6. I tried this profile. It works correctly within the SPAD next radio display, but still fails to change the frequency in the CRJ radio panel. It only fails for the Nav radio. This has me stumped especially if you are able to change Nav frequencies in your CRJ.
  7. Using the Saitek Radio Panel with Spad Next, the communication radios work correctly as does the transponder, but the Nav radios will not tune. Is there some strange thing at work here?
  8. OK, i thought the route anomolies were the problem. I can understand your concerns with the bank angle, etc., and I hope these things are cleared up too. I have also had similar problems to yours.
  9. Fascinating thread! Ifikratis, please explain in detailed step-by-step account just how you are entering the route into the FMC. I have tried several methods to reproduce your results, but no matter how I enter the route I cannot duplicate the route as you show it.
  10. lfikratis, upon reading the information for LSGG departures, you will find some rather strict departure instructions for the KONI4J SID. It is only available for aircraft smaller than a B737-700, including the A318,A319, and the A320 or smaller. For RWY 23,The departure climb is as follows: Take-off up to 2900 feet - Take-off power; Climb at V2 + 10knt to 20knt or climb gradient limitation 2900-4400 feet Climb power; Climb at V2 + 10knt to 20knt (In my simulation with 72 passengers, 3000 lbs cargo and 7800 lbs fuel, V2 + 20knts = 171 knots) Above 4400 feet ACFT clean-up and acceleration to climb speed. The SID also advises to begin your initial turn when passing 1900 feet which is about 500 feet above ground, and using a minimum bank angle of 25 degrees! for Wise87: I think you misunderstood my meaning when I mentioned 170 knots in the above post. This only applies to departure procedures of the KONI4J type where the initial waypoint is very close to the airport and there is a very sharp turn after this waypoint. And, as you can see above, the LSGG departure guidelines recognize this and limit your initial speed so you can follow the strict noise abatement guidelines. I am certainly not an expert on any of this, but a little research becomes pretty informative for all future flights.
  11. )n the runway prior to takeoff, set the speed to 170knots in the MCP. Throttles to TOGA, set NAV on the MCP, rotate, gear up, clean flaps, click on SPEED on the MCP, click on Autopilot, still about 1.5 miles from the first waypoint of the SID, about 500 feet above ground. check on Speed setting to make sure it is still on 170 knots when the first turn is begun. half way through the turn, set speed to 200 knots. You have to initiate the autopilot rather quickly because of the closeness of the first waypoint. In real life the pilot would initiate the turn manually upon positive rate of climb and gear-up. Clean up the flaps, etc. and when stable, then actuate the autopilot. Remember, as Pilot in Charge you always stay ahead of the aircraft,
  12. Sorry to be the only one without a problem. I tried your flightplan today and flew it without a hitch. The aircraft still overcorrects in tight turns, but it flew the route without any problem in NAV mode. No extra vectors or lines in my flightplan screen, all the legs were good. I also checked the flightplan in SimBrief to see if there were any errors, but found none. If I see a departure with a quick, sharp turn, I make sure that speed mode is set rather low, such as 170-180 knots to make it easier on the autopilot to stay near the route. Version 1.0.3.0 update
  13. My system runs on Windows 7. Nothing updated by Microsoft for about two years, my crash was not caused by any update. My question is...How can I fly many flights without any problems and then for no "apparent" reason have a major malfunction that shuts down the engines, deletes the flightplan,disconnects the autopilot, and deploys the ADG? Then complete three more flights without any problem! My hope is that this is not treated as a result of my "system" state. Love this aircraft otherwise!
  14. I have now flown about 15-16 flights in the CRJ. I have only had one flight where everything crashed mid-flight. I have flown two more after the mid-flight crash, both without any incidents. I will continue to fly because this aircraft is a hoot to fly, Hopefully it will continue to fly well in the future as all my other aircraft fly.
