    Flight Student - Groundwork
  1. Further to my earlier post, managed to make another perfect intercept (KMSY 11) and the aircraft followed both the LOC and GS (this time with the correct annunciations) - but around 1000' AGL the aircraft just decided to level off. On this approach, not a problem, but it does mean flying into true IFR conditions is a bit of a gamble.
  2. does appear to have resolved this issue for me (only based on one flight so far, but both departure and arrival had ground N1s around 21%)
  3. I had a minor issue with the new update yesterday - KTLH 27, intercept was messy from the LNAV but it did correct, and start following the GS (although showed VGP in the PFD). However around 1500' it started levelling off - not completely, but it ended up losing the GS requiring manual intervention. Speed was around 140kts at the time.
  4. I found if you hold shift whilst using the scroll wheel it speeds up! Luckily haven't had to do any DH/MDAs above 700' yet though
  5. It was indeed - and it appears to have worked. Thanks!
  6. Customers who bought the CRJ outside the MS Store (or Steam) can use the updater tool (look in start menu). I haven't got any form of Updater in the start menu (Windows 10). The only entry under my Aerosoft CRJ on the start menu is a link to the manuals folder (it isn't in there, either).
  7. I'm still having issues with this despite changing my sensitivity settings and playing with calibration. It's a bit frustrating constantly riding the brakes when taxiing, and landing with a fairly high level of thrust. It is possible to move the levers to a true idle N1 using miniscule adjustments, but these are out of the detents and so the throttle quadrant drops back into them (and to the high N1) as soon as you let go. EDIT - just to add, it does seem that the anti-ice has an effect. I was taxiing with it all off, turned the three AI switches on and off and the N1 w
  8. I've had hit and miss results - KJAX 26 and KMIA 08R both provided issues; KJAX was a bit of a mess but it was my first flight so could have been down to me, but KMIA was with the benefit of some successful ILS experience behind me and yet provided the massive nosedive others have reported. The only thing I can possibly think is that both these approaches were from vector portions of a STAR using DIR INTC or HDG rather than an LNAV intercept.
  9. I've done a few flights with the CRJ700 and have input a DH as per the Navigraph charts. The last few flights have all constantly repeated the 'minimum' callout on reaching DH (around 5 seconds between calls). Not really an issue on a CATII ILS, but I was doing the GPS approach into KEYW with LNAV only DH (approx 750') and it was announcing all the way from 750' to ground level (AP turned off) which is a little distracting. Have I got to acknowledge the callout somehow? Might it be because I haven't reset the AP Disconnect toggle (I use a joystick button to disconnect AP and hand f
  10. I've just had the same thing taxiing on the ground for departure - idle thrust was giving 33% N1 whilst taxiing so the aircraft races away a little. This is then resolved when applying the parking brake; N1 decreases to 21%. Release the parking brake and move the TCA levers and the N1 reverts to a minimum of 33% until the parking brake is re-applied.
  11. Same, we both posted at the same time! Glad to know it isn't just me.
  12. (Apologies if this is the incorrect section!) I have purchased and installed the CRJ and look forward to putting it through its paces. However I've hit a snag before leaving the ground. I'm attempting to calibrate the throttles, however the EFB doesn't see the position of my Thrustmaster TCA quadrant (line of dashes) and trying to set a position only gives an input of -999999 for every detent. The throttles are working and visible in the Controls section of the MSFS settings menu. With engines running I do get a result in that power changes occur, however th
