  1. Congratulations! Looking forward to the update... I hope you can produce PDF output like Simbrief which includes a more detailed map of the route I'm flying (configurable country borders, airports, navaids, water features etc) . It's nice in the PMDG 747-8 to load up the PDF and have a look at the map to see what I'm flying over.
  2. Aerosoft and XP10! Yes Flight is a shaping up to be a big disappointment!
  3. +1 Isn't the FBW what makes the Airbus unique? So IMHO you must simulate the FBW properly and then you will have a unique product feature that no one else has! You have already stated that the systems are not going to be PMDG level of complexity so if I want complex systems I will continue to fly PMDG 747/MD11 and the LDS767. However if I want to experience the unique Airbus FBW experience then I must purchase the Airbus X Advanced version.

    Hmmm I get CTDs too... I might try deleting my FSX.CFG and see how it goes with a default FSX.CFG
  5. By shutting it off does that mean you are then flying in DIRECT mode? In effect the Airbus then flies like a Boeing? Aerosoft what was the point? The FBW is so "lame" it has to be turned off to actually perform visual approaches. Sure its a very nicely model VC and external model. But its inexcusable that the FBW is so useless.
  6. Must have been an absolute mess months ago if after a 3 month delay it still has so many bugs!
  7. I do this... fly straight and level, flaps up, say at about 240kt. Push stick forward to maybe 5 degree nose down, release the stick. The nose doesn't stay where I pointed (at 5 degrees down) it but instead "drifts" back up a couple of degrees over about 1 to 2 seconds. Surely in the real aircraft the instant I release pressure on the stick the FBW should be trimming to maintain the exact pitch commanded?
  8. Win7 64 bit... Just pressing S and A keys to change views. The first time it happened I was pressing A to check out all the different views, from memory it CTD when I cycled all the way back to the first VC view. The second time I think I was just panning around in the cockpit with the mouse (mouse look enabled). Third time I crashed the plane trying to land. It switched to external view and then when it started reset the sim it CTD'd.
  9. Also I remember now why I never did like the default A320 FBW (and therefore the AirbusX FBW). It's because to me the FBW always felt "mushy" especially in pitch. You point the nose down gently and release the side-stick but then the nose tends to raise slightly. It requires constant "tweaking" get it to stay where you want. Now maybe that is realistic but I somehow doubt it. Surely when I release the side-stick the aircraft should maintain its current attitude and not move at all (until I guess overspeed protection kicks in?).
  10. Make that 3 times now... the last CTD was after I crashed trying to land.
  11. Well I bit the bullet and purchased AirbusX. Twice in 10 mins it crashed FSX about 5 mins into flight. All I was doing was panning around the aircraft, trying different views etc. Are others having CTD issues? Not impressed, although the VC and external modelling is very good.
  12. Great news re SP1. I've just purchased and am downloading now. Hopefully the FBW issues will be minimized/resolved soon. In any case AirbusX seems like a worthwhile product. Please keep up the good support!
  13. +1 I too would like to know how it compares to the real Airbus. Surely the FBW is the most important/unique aspect of the Airbus that should be simulated as close as possible.
  14. Not sure but I think Aerosoft used standard XML gauges and not custom written C gauges.
  15. Can we get a definitive answer from Aerosoft? Will the FBW be fixed or not?
  16. Does Aerosoft even acknowledge the 100ft FBW bug exists? AFAIK its because Aerosoft decided to use the default FSX FBW implementation which has the exact same bug! It would be nice if Aerosoft actually informs existing (and potential) customers when/how this bug will be fixed.
  17. Really? That's very disappointing.... No money from me then, glad I didn't rush in and purchase when it was first released.
  18. Excellent! As soon as they fix the FBW I will purchase.
  19. +1 I haven't flown or purchased it yet but I see little point in paying $40 for the default FSX FBW implementation! Aerosoft why did you even bother? The FBW is what makes an Airbus unique and yet the AirbusX is using the same buggy default FSX FBW implementation from 4 years ago. Couldn't you have tried a little harder in this respect? At least mention on the website that the AirbusX is still using the default FSX FBW. edit: I wonder how many fewer sales there would have been if the forums had known in advance of the default FSX FBW implementation?
  20. What!!! The Aerosoft A320 does the same nose dive at 100ft like the default A320? You have got to be joking, that is disgraceful. What is the point then of buying the AirbusX? If I want complex systems I can fly PMDG 747/MD11 or LDS 767. The only reason I was going to buy the AirbusX was because I thought it would offer a realistic FBW experience, something that the default A320 does not offer. So it turns out the Airbus X is using the standard FSX airbus FBW logic, I hope the reviewers make the major deficiency blatantly clear in their reviews. Disappointed to say the least! edit: I'll probably still buy it anyway But please fix the FBW!
  21. Think you said elsewhere that 5 users had this problem... so that about 2500 sales so far then? Not bad.
  22. Interesting link. I don't suppose all of those laws are implemented 100% in the AirbusX, or maybe they are?
  23. ROTFL... any screenshots of this? Sounds a bit like overkill to me, I imagine its an optional install?
  24. Without some reasons to back that statement up you just sound like a troll. Why unflyable?
  25. I don't have the Airbus X yet but would like to know what people think of the FBW compared to the default FSX A320. Sounds like the FBW would make flying SIDS/STARS fun but just how realistic is the performance of the FBW? Also, do you need a really good joystick to get the best out of the FBW? Can the FBW cope with cheaper joysticks that might tend to "spike" a little, I guess its a matter of tweaking the deadzones etc.
