  1. I really hope it will be improved in the next update, I bought the CRJ because of the more hand flying design and a HUD to make it easy and fun, but I am really disappointed about it, not only because it's not collimated, but mostly because it's missing features and it's buggy.


    As of today, I have 5 times more flight hours on the DC-6 than on the CRJ 

  2. After a long pause flying the CRJ, waiting for the throttles to get fixed, I did a short flight after the new update, and was happy to finally be able to manage the power precisely.


    But the flight path symbol on the HUD is still jumping up and down during a stable approach. That's an issue that was reported a few days after V1 release, do you have any ETA on a fix?


    Also, might it be possible to get a fully working HUD, in the next few month?

    How the sim was developed is for the planes included with the sim.  Complex addons like the AS CRJ and upcoming releases from PMDG et al, will outstrip what the sim is capable of doing.  Asobo will not be interested, nor should they be, in putting control systems in for each add on.  So again, your choice, everyone's choice is clear.  Complain here or to Asobo and keep getting the same response from people doing it the right way, or join in with people doing it the right way.  Again, I cannot speak to Spadnext or FSUIPC as I don't use them for complex aircraft controls and scripts, but Axis and Ohs works.  It works for all airplanes and it knows what airplane you are flying so you don't even have to remember to switch profiles.  


    Feels like we are in Groundhog Day, what are you trying to do over and over again, selling me some software. I gave my piece of mind in previous posts.


    Aerosoft needed to adapt to the way MSFS throttles interact with addons, it's done, in beta now, might be delayed with SU later this month, we will see, I hope for a release in a couple of week max.

    You can do things to make stuff more realistic like turning on the nose light with the taxi lights.  Or complain.


    Did you really need to write the last part? Now I understand your low reputation on this forum.

    Let's keep focus on the throttle issue, we are done here.

    Why. So you have control over how your controls operate and not how the sim or some developer thinks you want. 


    How the sim was develop about control, it's fine for me, I can bind switch to 99% of the actions I might use. But, if I start using customs panel and switches with a leonardo or FFB devices, I might think about it, but now, I just want my addon to fly well without extra payments

    What he might be seeing is an issue now exposed that was not as noticeable before since the other issue was so glaring...  Noisy Pots...  Over time the potentiometers fail as the wiper is basically scrubbing metal away little by little... The Pot is effectively a variable Resistor that is changing the Voltage level read by the controller doing the Analog to Digital conversion...  spikes develop over time..  This is why Hall Effect sensors are so desired now since it is a magnetic field being read and no Metal on Metal parts...


    But before trying other software to fix the problem, there is a very simple test to do.


    When you open the CRJ and zoom on the virtual throttles in the cockpit. Do they move without issue, are they precise? If yes then it's not an hardware issue, it's the addon way to interpret those value or the simulated fadec.


    Same, if the hardware is working flawlessly on every other planes.

    Don’t know what to tell you. With MY system and with MY controllers it works without flaw. My controllers are the HC Alpha and Bravo. Also I use a keyboard profile that only has an assignment for outside view.  My in sim controller profiles are blank except for hat switch assignments to view positions. I literally control NOTHING from inside the sim. 


    Good for you, if it solves your problems.


    But, I won't spend 20 bucks, on a software I have no use for, just for a single addon.

    Why not try to investigate why your experience is different


    On this case it's quite simple, If you don't have issue with other MSFS planes and you follow the 0-100% throttle axis, then it's the CRJ problem.


    You need to understand that people on this thread like myself, can't fly the CRJ because of this issue, hence the frustration. It has been fixed for nearly two weeks, but us users still need to wait, why not releasing a hotfix for this?

    It will be looked at.


    It's not the case already?


    This problem was reported a couple of days after release and a dev said he will look at it.

    Damn. I was hoping that would help. It improved things for me but then again my N1 never dropped down to 50%. It only dropped to around 75% or so.


    No worries, it might have improve my experience, thanks for sharing.


    I just hope Aerosoft, will recognize it's broken and fix it soon, I did not really fly the CRJ since update, and I will let it aside until it gets better.

    Are the keyboard throttle bindings (F1, F2, F3, F4) still enabled? If so, try removing those bindings and see if that improves things.


    Ok, I did it before a flight and no change, the throttle in the cockpit move accordingly to my TM TCA, but FADEC is drunk.


    Moving the throttle a few millimeters, will result in N1 going down fast to 51.5%, then after a couple seconds back up. 


    Sometime moving it down will sharply increase N1.


    I even tried moving the throttle from 5mm to 10mm below climb position, then back to 5mm repeating it every 1 second, it will block N1 to 51.5%.


    It's bad, even the Bleriot 11 has a better throttle response.

    Just keep in mind that the controls functionalities are extremely different wether you fly a C172 or a B747.


    Agree, it mandatory switching from a single / dual engine to a quad like the 747


    On another note, I hope the patch/hotfix will be out soon, I just did my first CRJ flight with my new TCA throttle and it's nearly impossible to accurately control the power output.
