  1. I get a lot of sudden gusts with REX 2 and FSX and that's flying "the other" bus. It's a known fact that FSX winds are too strong/unrealistic. Have you got the weather in FSX set to rate of change "None", that might help With a registered copy of FSUIPC, you can surpress turbulence and sudden wind changes with it through FSX's own weather, but it's still quite strong

  3. Turn off the Flaps warning. Button Top left side of overhead panel for Flaps 3 approach Coopz
  4. Have you loaded the plan via flight planner into FSX ? Coopz
  5. That would be good, a lot of Noise abatement differences around ICAO's. Plus it enhances the departure especially if you need to stay at V2+10 flying a tight turn departure for the first +7000 ft or so VNKT is a good one at 7500/7500 departure is at 4250 ASL Coopz
  6. This worked for me rotate the knob for a bit clockwise in STD flashing and it comes on. Coopz
  7. Rule of thumb, if temp at ground level <10c then anti ice on. As far as I know probe AI is auto but I always switch it on manually regardless (peace of mind) Coopz
  8. Obviously a lot of this is weight dependent. There is a fantastic weather/load manager/performance and calculator tool that does it all for you, even runway lengths etc etc. It's called Topcat. www.topcatsim.com if you're going to be overweight at your destinations it will let you know. Friend of mine is A320 Bus driver from Air Arabia. I have spent a lot of time discussing all things Airbus with him. From what I can gather anything between 150-300 is a good firm landing, anything less is floaty and eats up tarmac especially when wet, anything higher is hard and over 420+ fpm you can call the inspection team out Typical descent rate is about 7-800 fpm or about -3 degrees on the FPA TRk mode on the FCU at your V approach speed (average 135-40 kts)Flaps full gear down with the flare at 20-30 ft, throttles to idle before touchdown Of course that's a real bus but it will give you some idea of what to aim for and you'll nail it and get a good feel for it with a few practice runs. Autoland is typically 200 fpm. Hardly noticeable as a passenger. A real good way to practice is fly it down from a 1000 AGL, if your stable it should just float down at 700 fpm with little input required with you crossing the threshold at 100 ft then on the stripes at 50, fly it onto the runway Happy landings Coopz
  9. Have you used the load manager ? You'll find the .exe file in Aerosoft folder in FSX. Double click RS1 keypad, it should then give you the values once you have sent the payload from the load manager. It also does Metric and Imperial Coopz
  10. Have you got the show all variations box ticked at bottom of FSX menu
  11. Would have simply been the fsx.cfg, congrats anyhow Coopz67
  12. Signamanbob, Yes there is an update for the Wilco, its solved a lot of issues that they had given up on once the bus had reached about 3 years old, TOD, proper curved SIDs etc. I've been really impressed with Aerosofts support, even the whole layout of the forum in advance of release. If Aerosoft had 3 more years to work on this product imagine how good it would be. I firmly believe they will deliver a huge amount of improvement in SP1. Hopefully encouraged by the popularity of the product they will see the benefits of stepping up to an advanced sim, then there would be a race on with Airsimmer. Coopz
  13. <P>Perhaps but I can see the potential in what Aerosoft have done <BR>Cheers for the heads up<BR><BR>C67</P>
  14. Try deleting your fsx.cfg file in USer/appdata/roaming/microsoft/fsx it will generate a new one but save it to the desktop just in case It worked for me on reboot as FSX then asked for the permission to allow GPS module. Also it does this when FSX is paused !
