  1. Check the EFB to see what your VREF speed should be. Once you are fully configured maintain VREF. Do not add 5 knots to it like many people do. If your VREF is 134, fly 134. Thrust to idle at 50ft. Begin to fare at 30ft. The flare is very minimal. Aside from that there are no other tricks.
  2. I've read all of your posts and @Quenteagle mentioned that that plane was doing the correct entry. From what you wrote I agree. A RIGHT turn is the correct entry procedure at UXDEP from CRE. The plane should have made a right turn to approximately 327° and flown that heading for 30-60 seconds and then it should have made another right turn to the inbound track of 177°. So with this in mind, unless I'm missing something I'm not sure what you think the issue is. Cheers!
  3. The real plane, and the sim, will fly the entire hold (including the proper entry procedure) for you in NAV mode. Heading mode is never used for a hold.
  4. You're correct and I'm not sure why it doesn't display. This window is how I flew my descents in the real plane. It's very useful.
  5. Nope. The CRJ FMS (sim and real world) accepts "Fxxx" as a flight level entry. You don't need to put "FL". You can if you wish but it's an extra and unnecessary step.
  6. I was referring to aircraft without the supplemental ground wing anti-ice system. I loved the 200 but flying an 850 with all of those bells and whistles would have been cool!
  7. Ah I see. Well remember that you're free to set them at any point you like. It won't hurt anything. Just keep in mind that the FMS will autotune them when you get within a certain distance of the airport. In the real world we always set the NAV radios manually which then prevented the autotune from working (this was intentional) but it doesn't appear that the Aerosoft CRJ is modelled this way. Or perhaps it's just a difference between the CRJ 200 and the 550/700.
  8. Are you sure? Preventing that from happening is literally the sole reason that switch exists. Or so I thought anyway.
  9. I'm guessing it's just low on their priority list. It would be nice though for sure. I use it now but only for airspeed and altitude.
  10. That's just the way the CRJ FMS was designed. When the CRJ was built RNP approaches weren't a thing so they weren't designed into the FMS.
  11. I'll try it the next time I fly the plane but it's entirely possible that the switch it simply not modelled, or it could be a bug. Hopefully one of the administrators can chime in. But I will say that it's really rare for airliners to fly a hold by using the actual VOR. It's normally flown using the FMS. If you simply want to practice flying VOR holds then my point doesn't really apply to you but if you're going for realism then you'll want to set up the hold in the FMS.
  12. Hmmm. Unfortunately I'm out of ideas then. My apologies. Do you have any peripherals plugged into the computer? What about controller profiles?
  13. This is a known issue which I thought was fixed with the latest update I haven't had a chance to try it out but the good news is that the FD issue does not affect the autopilot so if you leave the autopilot engaged it should fly the ILS perfectly. That may not be what you're looking for right now but it's a work around.
  14. Does anything happen when you press the quick-set buttons in the EFB?
  15. Did you calibrate the thrust levers in the EFB? Even if you leave the thrust levers in the CLB detent that should still cause the aircraft to accelerate. You should be in MAN in cruise.
  16. @august78 What happens when you load the plane at the gate (instead of holding short of the runway)? Do you have better results or is it the same?
  17. Totally fair. As someone who has flown this plane in real life I have been absolutely blown away by the quality of this aircraft. I bought it on day one of its release and at first I balked at the price. I thought it was too expensive but I bought it anyway and thought "this better effin' be good!" I was immediately hooked. The attention to detail is astounding. All of the systems work. Even systems that I would have completely understood if they decided not to model. The sounds, the visuals, the shadows, everything. Blown away. There were some hiccups of course. The ILS GS issue was a big one for me. I stopped flying it for a while because of it but since the latest release it's rock solid. I think a number of the bugs were because they were trying to push the envelope of what a MSFS Add-on can do. I appreciate that they're improving things as we go. This plane is only going to get better.
  18. @canadagoose Can I ask why you're climbing is VS mode? If it works for you that's great but that's not the proper way to do it. Use Speed mode. Select Speed mode, set the thrust to the climb detent and then set the speed to 250. She'll climb like like a rocket. At 10,000ft set the speed to 290 and she'll accelerate nicely and then keep climbing. Around FL280 or so press the centre of the speed knob and it will change to mach mode. Set it to 0.74 and leave it there until you get to your cruising altitude. By using speed mode you leave the thrust levers in the climb detent the entire way up. You don't ever have to adjust them. I highly discourage using VS mode because if you're heavier than normal or it's a really hot day then the plane can stall while trying to maintain a vertical speed that it doesn't have the capability to maintain. Using speed mode prevents that from happening. I hope you don't mind my input. At the end of the day do whatever makes you happy. It's just some food for thought.
  19. Yes, there is. There's a small switch next to the backup tuning unit called "Autotune Inhibit". I'm not sure if it's modelled in the sim or not. The other option is in the RADIO page of the FMS. Set both NAV modes to MAN instead of AUTO.
  20. I made a post about this issue a while ago. Have a look here: Doesn't look like they fixed it after all.
  21. Fun game but the developers don't really have time to search through photos to find bugs. If you want help you're going to need to specify exactly what the issue is. I'm guessing that the issue in this picture is that the ETA at your destination is earlier than all of the ETAs along your route? This has been an issue for a while. The issue was much worse before the last update. Hopefully it gets rectified soon.
  22. No that's not the issue. I have the exact same behaviour in flight. (in fact I think I've mentioned it in a post before). Using the HDG knob will show the heading value on the PFD and will show the dashed heading line but when I use my custom key binds to change the heading that doesn't happen. This means I have no way of knowing what I've set the new heading to (aside from trying to discern the heading from looking at the bug on the compass rose but that doesn't help when I want to set it to an exact heading). I'm glad I'm not the only one who's noticed it because it's actually quite annoying but I figured it's probably pretty low on the priority list.
