  1. It is the only explanation we have. Normally up there should be no ice and switching WAI on reduces engine power significantly, so adds to the incapability of flying.
  2. Yes, hitting ESC may fully extend the ground spoiler which is significantly dropping lift and increasing drag. Something beyond our control.
  3. There is a FAQ subject by my on correct use and flying climbs. On your first image I can see that your flight situation is abnormal - too high pitch, probably no flaps at that speed and that at 9000 ft. Suggest to train climbing with clear weather following the steps described. Key items: After rotation and gear up keep 10-15 degree pitch to continuously accelerate to bring in Flaps 8 at 180 and Flaps1 at 210. If you fly stable, meaning no input is needed, the press speed and confirm stability of flight at 210. Increase SPD to 250 and observe proper reaction of acceleration
  4. The normal bank angle is 30 degrees with a limit of 31.5 degrees for corrections. You should never see more bank when flown under AP control.
  5. Yes, there have been several others experiencing similar things, but all were able to follow the advice given and the problems went away.
  6. Check the following which can cause this: Flight model option needs to be MODERN CoG slider needs to be full right side No axis assigned to spoiler
  7. Speed mode is for climbing or descending only. It is not spot on the preselected speed when you have wind or especially turbulences. It holds it typically within 5 kts. Otherwise everyone on board would get thick. Still works as before after the last update. Make sure that the modes are correctly shown in the PFD.
  8. Unfortunately this is the case, but the issues are in the work....
  9. You need to ARM the NW steering so that the animation works. It is an inconsistency to be fixed.
  10. Default sensitivity is -30% on the control axis. We designed it with that setting. To ease ground steering you my go up to -50%.
  11. I can only say that the ground effect was measured and tested by a handful of CRJ pilots and what you see in the seem was considered as realistic behavior. Due to the low wing the ground effect is very sensible and reduces the descent rate.
  12. If you properly arm the ground spoilers and do not set reverse power before the nose wheel is down, than it should take down the nose at Vref.
  13. ...because you have ice despite that it should not occur or the spoiler is deployed, even invisible. These are the two main reasons that do happen under certain situations and are beyond our control.
  14. Yes, that would be the appropriate reaction. The AP needs some further fine-tuning in such situations but the real one is not perfect either.
  15. Some of you have faced issues with insufficient climb performance. There are two issues explained in threads which are icing / using AI and not visual spoiler deployment after using ESC. The following is intended to explain normal climb procedures. From a principal point of view, there are two modes you can fly the aircraft up to its altutude capacity. The aircraft can be flown with VS and SPD mode. Typical VS is used up to FL100 to easier match restriction/targets and ease passenger comford. Passing FL100 you can switch to SPD, dial in 250 or 290 and the aircraft
  16. I assume you are pretty heavy and you just get borderline to the aircraft capacity. There the Mach SPD control is not working well anymore. If the aircraft cannot maintain 500 fpm at nach 0.74, you are at the limit of its climb capacity. The proper reaction is to change to VS and stabilize for a cruise.
  17. From a principal point of view and just to summarize: The aircraft can be flown with VS and SPEED mode. Typical VS is used up to FL100 to match restriction/targets and passenger comford. Passing FL100 you can switch to SPEED, dial in 250 or 290 and the aircraft will pitch down to accellerate and then switch over to mach 0.74. You may use also 0.77, if you do not intend to go above FL320, especially when heavy. Any airline will prescribe in its Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) how the pilots have to fly it, which is taking routes, typical weather and loads into consideration.
  18. Please delete the spoiler axis as this may interfere with the spoiler simulation. We are working on a solution to elominite the issue. As for noise on the yoke or rudder axis. Again that may cause an issue in the control cycles. It is easy to widen and maybe also shift the center point so that the neutral position is not any longer giving input. Up to 5% do not disturbe the feeling when handflying the aircraft.
  19. The issue you have raised is recognized and it is indeed a better climb performance than the real aircraft. It is not as dramatic as you sound if you arrive at FL 360 while you should in the same time arrive at FL310. Please recognize that the atmospheric model and the flight model in MSFS are completely new and temperature has a big influence. As the cruise data at the typical flight level is very accurate, they have more importance over the climb performance as they define much more the flight planning versus actual consumption. Therefore the focus has been on that aspect. As the engine
  20. As you confirmed that the UI has a different wright than the EFB, the error is there. The UI shows the actual loading that the sim uses. If the EFB values are not properly transferred, then this is a different issue that some have seen. We have that issue registered to work upon. I would suggest that you try your MTOW test flight by loading via the UI with the maximums per stations as indicated. Do bot use the load slider.
  21. Just check all your assignments on the stick and throttle. By default there are many buttons active. You see this immediately when selecting ASSIGNED and open all sub categories. Any item that is on is highlighted.
  22. Because we believe this topic has been answered we have closed it. If you have any more questions feel free to open a new topic.
  23. Be assured that the fuel flow of the aircraft is very precise and that there is no reason to change anything. I don't know what FSEconomy uses as resources, but we developed against handbook data and matched those very closely in the typical flight envelop.
