    That might be the case, but it's in real low resolution and doesn't graphically mimic an actual radar in the same way, so that's why i asked. I'd like your models to look the best possible, that's the reason i bring these questions up (same with the ND font in the other thread).


    *** Edited the text as it wasn't fair and accurate.


    Aerosoft looks like this


    An actual one is way more detailed



    You are right in that our radar doesn't look as fancy as the foto you have shown.
    This however is for a simple reason: Weather in your sim simply isn't as fancy.
    We read directly from the sim and show you 100% exactly what is in the sim. The problem with that is, the weather in the simulator, even when using Active Sky or other weather addons, is plain unrealistic. Therefore you won't see a realistic weather front on the radar. There is none in your sim.

    During development of the radar we thought quite a bit about faking the indication and what you see how already is tweaked to look more realistic, however we still want to show you what is actually in your sim.  When you enter a precipitation zone on our radar you'll see it'll start to rain.


    Tools like Active Sky still go back to the time when no radars were available. They are build for impressive optics, not for realistic frontal systems. And this became ever so obvious when we developed our radar.
    But until they improve the weather injection into the sim to mimic real systems you will not see real systems on our radar either.


    Looking at Microsofts latest previews I am hoping the new MS sim will change this. They seem to have gone to great depths to mimic the current real weather and precipitation. This will hopefully open up some whole new levels!

    In reading the step by step guide, it mentions a transition altitude of 7,000 feet when setting up the FMS approach page into EGLL.  I am confused by this since the transition altitude in the US is 18,000 feet or is this the altitude of the last transition waypoint before final approach? Please clarify this point.


    As far as I know EGLL is not in the US (yet). The USA, as much as they'd like to be, are not the whole world ;)

    Some improvements have been made. But as one of our advisory pilots said 'if my aircraft would rattle as much as the FSL does, mechanics would need to find out what was loose'.


    Indeed, be aware that while you hear the bags rattling in the overhead bins, etc. in the cabin you don't usually hear that in the flightdeck. At least on my aircraft, other types might be different.

    if I look on the renewed Honeycomb Alpha page, it mentions at the bottom for the Bravo controls "vorbestellrabat",  original price 210.08 and now 189.07. Trying to go for that deal I get the 210 euros as reduced price. Maybe check and make sure the right price is offered everywhere...


    Met vriendelijke groet,

    PS geen bezwaar tegen de 189 euro natuurlijk, maar helaas lukt het me niet die ook werkelijk te krijgen. 😉


    Bert, are you sure you took taxes into consideration?

  5. There is a manual included in the box and it contains the instructions to download the driver. I don't see the problem.

    Really? It's normal to put an item out of the box only half of it`s switches are working? Could be broken, connection, configuration..... next 2 hours are invain with slightly embarresment. In the box no hint like,  please download configuration tool, look at the forum and so on. Aersoft sells variant items of simulation-software, this I know since over 20 years as the advertisment flyer laid by says. An additional  flyer with notes (which I now have gathered) for configuration Honeycomb Aeronautical Yoke would be a too big effort, right?  Be sure, for me this is a singular occaison in my relation to Aerosoft, no consequence,  and be sure as well, usual I know what I buy,  why and where. 

    Finally thank you very much for your effort to prepare a Default config file for P3D for me, highly appreciated.


    Have a Good Day.

    This is true.  It has to be entered as an exact altitude for manual entries. 


    I wish it was more like Boeing/MD, but it's not.




    Boeing can't do it either, it's really only MD and Bombardier who do it. I woulnd't know what to use it for anyway.

  7. If you did not turn on the anti ice and colleacted a couple of tons ice on your aircraft this might be a normal level.

    You will have iced up and thus lost performance.

    Normal cruise levels and performance of the CRJ are comparable to other jet airliners like the 737.

    Will the throttle axes work through FSUIPC? I have old/dirty controllers, so all axes go through FSUIPC's "cleaning". Also the extensive options to combine controls on one physical axis is great. I remember it explicitly being mentioned that throttles on the first CRJ do not work with it, so I need to re-configure axes explicitly if I switch between CRJ and other aircraft.

    It is/was a configurator option. Whoever claims it dosen't work did not read the manuals ;)

    YES! I have 3, still installed, does the issue lay with these then? Do I need to uninstall them?  I flew the PMDG 737 in the same scenario and the entire flight went as it should.


    That might well be. We know the issue with their coypright system exists and they do not care about changing it as far as I am aware..

    Best you give it a try and just see what happens.

  10. To be honest, I don't really see the sense in wasting performance by simulating buttons which don't do anything in the end.


    Did you know that on a system is just down to the minimum requirements every single one of those buttons could cost 0.5fps? Imagine what would happen if we added some 10 new buttons!

    From 18 to 13 fps is a huuuuuge difference!
