  1. Looks like someone didn't run the pre-flight checklist item "coffee quantity". Luckily I don't drink coffee, but rumor has it that item is more important than fuel quantity on many airlines
  2. The question is how it got their, since a) I installed the A330 after the smaller busses and b) I was already using the FuelPlanner for the A330 without issues UPDATE: Reinstalling did the trick. Still a mystery how the old one got there in the first place. Oh well doesn't matter right now
  3. I will try that EDIT: I decided to reinstall the A330 to try to solve the FuelPlanner issue as well. My guess is that might help with the AP
  4. Hey there, I just noticed that my left side (HDG and SPD) are blank and the right side is cut off. I am pretty sure they were functioning normal after 1.0.0.1 update. The only other change I did was install the trial flight model fix, which I then reverted back. Same problem.
  5. Already done that. I was then able to open the fuelplanner which showed the A318... when switching to the A330 I got another error message.. I was able to ignore it and put in some numbers, which was recognized by the aircraft then loading it in. Unfortunately I then encountered another issue with the MCP, but that's for another thread (unless I can find if someone else has posted that). Anyway upon returning to the fuelplanner I get the same error message I had to begin with.
  6. I am also getting an error message when trying to open the fuel planner. Only thing I have changed was installing the temporary flight model fix. I then reverted back to the original file with no help. I also deleted the FuelPlanner saved settings file, I could open the fuel planner again, but when selecting the A330 I got another "force quit" error message (which can be ignored). When I leave it at the A330 I get the same error message again as seen below
  7. I am not sure we are facing the same "issue" here but my A330 will also start rolling at idle upon releasing the brakes. The acceleration is slow but steady and won't stop requiring a regular application of brakes. My hardware throttles match the VC throttles. I will say that I had light loads due to short flights but it seems kind of strange Airbus would design an aircraft that needs regular braking activity during taxi. The B77L even at light loads would slowly bleed off GS at idle. I can't make any claims about realism, but the A330 is the first payware level jetliner that needs brakes during taxi. I always imagined if engines were that powerful to get the plane rolling at idle the GS would level off at below 10 kts or so.
  8. It's surely not un-flyable, but I too look forward for changes to the better. I don't know if the current aileron input logic is realistic or not. Perhaps a lot of P3D limitations, but I'll take a better responsiveness nonetheless if it can be achieved without causing other FDE aspects to break. Perhaps MSFS will provide a much better environment for this A330 should Aerosoft decide to bring it over.
  9. I will add myself to the list of those that notice slow response from the aircraft after input has been made. At first I thought it might be the larger aileron travel on the honeycomb yoke, but there certainly is a delay. The sidestick animation corresponds perfectly to my yoke inputs. While I think with a little getting used to hand flying is possible it sure feels a lot different than all the other planes I have (including the Aerosoft A320) and there isn't much difference among the others. I think the pitching thing is due to auto-trim? Perhaps switching FBW off might help for the time being?
  10. I don't think so as navigraph works fine for me. My thoughts are the A330 ships with the navdata pro set and if you want to use navigraph you'd need to update it for the A3XX
  11. I just did some fooling around and I think you can get used to it quickly. It will certainly pose a challenge when landing in Kai Tak (one of my planned flights with the A330), but I am sure it ain't impossible hehe 😉
  12. Hey Dave, I have actually done those steps before, but just in case have done so again. Nothing has changed and the yoke is actually configured correctly. The animations of the side-stick, ailerons and the white cross on the PFD respond perfectly to the yoke inputs. I also tested the A320 for reference as I recently used it to see if anything has changed. The A320 performed as expected (just like it did before without problems) to the inputs. It's just the A330 isn't as responsive as the A320.... and perhaps that's how the real aircraft actually behaves in real life. That's why I tried not to use the word "issue" but "finding". I haven't flown other heavies (787, 747, etc..) with the honeycomb, so can't really tell if it's just heavy vs. non-heavy aircraft. Perhaps the A320 is even too responsive. I can't say. The only thing I can say is that there is difference in responsiveness, between the A320 and the A330 when using the aileron.... but just the actual turn.... side-stick and aileron animation match the yoke inputs perfectly and show no difference between A320 and A330. Perhaps others notice the same responsiveness difference between the A320 and the A330. Anyway the same about very slight acceleration during idle power, which possibly is perfectly normal for the A330 (not so healthy for the brakes though lol). All I really want to know at this point is if others experience the same behaviors (again don't want to call it "issues" just yet as it may very well be what the real aircraft is like and/or intended to be that way) 😉 Cheers,
  13. Yeah that was my initial thought on the taxiing. I just wanted confirmation on that, not that something is wrong with my setup and the fact that a beta tester claimed he never encountered the aircraft to accelerate (albeit very slowly) on idle so I thought I might share. I am using the native axis settings.... calibrated with sensitive to max and nullzones at min. I assume the white cross on the PFD is linked to the yoke rather than the aircraft itself. But who knows maybe the honeycomb isn't right for the A330. Maybe someone who used the honeycomb for the A330 might share some experiences. I will investigate myself to see if indeed I did some doing to this, but it's quite hard knowing I haven't really tampered on anything other than installing UUEE and the A330. PS: Using the latest P3D client
  14. Hey there, First of all nicely done. Looks good, performance is quite good, too. Currently on my way from ESSA to UUEE. I will continue to investigate, but I thought I might drop two (potential) findings. First of all I noticed that the plane at idle starts to roll when releasing the parking brakes. It slowly, but steadily will increase speed. I have to regularly use brakes to keep the speed constant. At first I thought that might be normal.... it appears some planes with powerful engine will in fact start rolling (and my load for that flight is light, too). Someone however suggested that in his tests didn't come across this "issue". I wouldn't know if anything else might cause this.... as I didn't change anything prior to installing the A330 (and my other planes including the A320 don't show this behaviour). Secondly, which I also only observe with the A330 (also here the A320 doesn't show these "symptoms") is, when flying the A330 with the honeycomb yoke (yes bash me for it lol.... but it's just such a quality difference compared to my joystick and don't want to buy a joystick on the same level right now) I have to turn the yoke at least 50-60° to get some reaction and then it reacts pretty hard..... I am not sure if this is due to the fact that the yoke has a large aileron travel, but then again the A320 turns "normally" in a steady curve. I'd also like to note that the white cross on the indicator correctly corresponds to my yoke inputs. Thank and Cheers, Amadeo
