  1. Yep, it certainly should. All my other products are there, but not the A330. I will send an email now.
  2. Hey. I have reinstalled windows whilst awaiting the A330 update and have come to download the latest version and there is no download in my downloadable products page.... The order shows in the orders page but no download listed in the downloadable products section of my account.... Can someone help with this?
  3. Noticed now my EFOB on the legs page is around 10 tonnes under actual FOB, on every waypoint. The last passed waypoint fuel total is wrong it seems, by around -10000kg. It is correct burn for my paperwork, matching each waypoint on fuel burnt. . INIT says correct onboard amount, legs is making up its own amount? so fuel used says 10220 right now, fuel onboard says 25930. matching fuel pred page almost. But last leg says EFOB 15.7 and next wypoint 12.5.
  4. Hey. Not flown many hours in this wonderful aircraft yet, but visually and performance is great so far. I have a few things happening, such as GWCG is red and saying .4% (underneath GW) actually as i typed this it just jumped to 14.3% green... who knows? Also, my weight and balance sheet isnt being printed after GSX loading. Im guessing maybe these two things are linked and its just GSX stuff that will be tuned as we go on? Not problematic really. So my biggest thing is, although the idea had sounded great and i couldnt wait, im left feeling pretty underwhelmed by the EFB. As of now, still no Navigraph charts. I understand this will come, so when it does, im sure i will use it. But other than that.... for example, the radar web pages almost never load or stay loaded, and are basically useless. And the "Takeoff data for A330" what is this? It relates to nothing.... Its just reads flex 54 v1 119 vR129 V2 136... Regardless of the weights and the MCDU v speeds.... how do i type in the weather icao box to search a metar? Now the checklist. It is overwhelming me... There are so many items that destroy the flow. checklist items like "Direction control......use rudder" and "Rotation.....Preform" These are not checklist items, surely? It sort of makes the checklist, an item that is supposed to be concise and functional, into a step by step tutorial. Anyway, the aircraft is great, and the EFB is there and i can see it will develop. So If anyone has any pointers on what i have mentioned, please advise. Otherwise, thanks for a great addon that is definately filling a gap for me in the mid to long haul.
  5. Indeed ORBX. It was quite bizarre going there after flying the approach online so often. Worth a visit for any aviation enthusiasts! Beautiful town and surrounding too.
  6. Just back from Innsbruck and couldn't resist flying the Bus back in. Such a rewarding approach, and the views..... Likeness is pretty good id say!
  7. Same here. Its stutters. Taxiing is most noticeable... its like this ---------..-----------------..------------..-----------------------..---------------..-------------..----------- (line smooth, dotdot stutter) Old CRJ was always smoothest addon i have, 30-45 steady. And also CDT with EFB use. CDT stops me every flight. I understand this is being looked into as of 10th Dec there was a breakthrough with Navigraph 1hr timeout problem? Im yet to have a go at a landing unfortunately, But i imagine the stutters would be a problem with smooth flow. ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this report: 12/17/2019, 13:53:14 Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 18363) (18362.19h1_release.190318-1202) System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.

  8. Ahh of course, the wind just improves ground speed so you may reduce the time you are burning fuel, but not the rate p/h. Wasn't thinking fourth dimensionally 😂
  9. I never pay much attention to the fuel flow when I fly the heavies on sim, I guess there is less concern about running out! Haha. But is that around 5 tonne an hour?! Or almost a tonne every 10 minutes. Yikes. And that's light with a tail wind
  10. I had no idea about this and just stumbled across this thread, having purchased on release day happily with my upgrade discount. Didn't know anything of the extra 10% but just checked my email and sure enough, a refund has been issued covering the 10%. Thanks very much Aerosoft. I will be donating it to my local Air ambulance charity, seeing as I had already disregarded it! 😂
  11. Well even though I have been in Innsbruck on holiday since Sunday, I have managed to purchase, install, update and even have a quick simple take-off and ils autoland over desktop connection. And although Mein Deutsch ist nicht sehr gut, as I am finding out here, I can say Herzliche Glückwünsche for what I can make out so far. Can't wait to get home! Well, not so much..... (no A330 on the apron here at LOWI 😕)
