  1. FS2020 got so good, it turned us into flight sim junkies, counting the minutes until the next flight! Maybe it is a good thing the SU5 update mess keeps us from flying for a while. After all, there still is a real world out there 🙂
  2. My advice: don‘t bother with complicated flight plans at the beginning. Just fly the same route between two airports (not more than 50 miles apart) again and again. Just use the CDU to input departure and arrival airports - no complicated flight planning. After 3 flights you will know that route by heart, and some flights later you will start getting the CRJ! I remember how I did EDDF-EDDS back and forth at least 20 times for training, and each time I achived a higher level of control over the CRJ. Believe me: the day will soon come when you won’t struggle with this beautiful bird anymore, but instead enjoy how it handles… Good luck!
  3. All right, thanks for that info! I usually take of with 8 deg. flaps. A button on my throttle is programed for flaps up/down and I usually give it two clicks down and check visually, if the lever is in the right position. Maybe I overlooked something this time….
  4. Pressing the TOGA button on the thrust lever does not always activate the FD correcty. Instead, a warning symbol appears on the PFD and the magenta lines don’t move into position. Pressing the FD button (on the AP panel), followed by another press of the TOGA button takes care of the problem. Does anyone know why this happens in the first place? Thanks in advance!
  5. Thanks! I did indeed press the Cancel Mod LSK on the right FMS, but that did not make the yellow message disappear. I‘ll try again today - preferably on the ground, not like last time in the air and about to land…
  6. On my flights, I usually set the right side FMS to the DIR/INTC page for descent advisory that is always available at a glance. Yesterday, I pressed some of the line select keys on the left and right frame of the right FMS screen, just to see if that did something. It did not - at least, I did not notice any effect. But later, when I tried to make changes to the approach in the pilot‘s side FMS, I got the yellow warning: „XSIDE Mod in Progress“ (or something similar), and I could not make changes anymore to my flight plan and approach setup. That resulted in a forced, visual straight in landing (luckily, weather was ok), but it kept me wondering what exactly had happened. And more important: how do I get rid of that yellow warning and how do I get the FMS ready for input again (in case that warning appears again some day)? Thanks in advance for your comments!
  7. 2 reasons why I prefer the 550 over the 700: 1. less passengers equals more room per passenger. As a pilot, I like the idea that my virtual passengers travel as comfortably as possible 2. I just love the red 550 livery. I‘m not emotionally attached to any airline. And when I look at my red 550 in external view, I imagine I‘m looking at my own private jet …to each their own 🙂
  8. I‘ll check on my next night flight (but I admit I do prefer daylight flying…)
  9. I also experienced this frame reate drop while programming the FMC. It did not go away, so I rebooted my PC, restarted the sim and on the second attempt all went fine (same flight as before, so I have no clear idea what exactly triggered the frame rate loss…)
  10. Hi Matthew, A question for you: when I import a flight plan from SimBrief, it comes with departure and arrival runways. The arrival part is separated from the rest of the route by a discontinuity. I usually close that discontinuity during cruise in oder to see my complete route in the Nav Display. Sometimes (too often!) ATC gives me another runway for landing. I then look up that runway on the DEP/ARR, pick a transition and hit EXE. I usually end up with all kinds of confusing weite lines drawn on my Nav Display. How is this done correctly? Mus I first manually delete all entries relating to the old approach before setting up the new arrival runway/transition? Thanks and regards, Hans
  11. Sorry to hear that! Do you use Navigraph? Maybe updating the sim and CRJ to the latest cycle helps…?
  12. I fully understand that, Tom. What is Aerosoft‘s position on this issue? Will you eventually release all your titles on Marketplace, or only a selection?
  13. For simplicity‘s sake, I buy all my add-ons from MS Marketplace. I noticed that many airports are available directly from the publishers, but not on the Marketplace. Is it just a matter of time, of a matter of principle (i.e. some add-ons are never meant to be sold via Marketplace?) In particular, I hope for Zagreb to become available…
  14. I installed via MSFS Marketplace. As a matter of fact, the only option I had was a complete re-install, with a 1,8GB download. Once in the plane I checked the throttle calibration. Nothing I needed to do. My old calibration was still there and it worked just fine. Flying: Like a charm! - GS capture works - no more zig-zagging en route - no more center of gravity / load issues - better ground handling I always liked the CRJ, even with the glitches. But now I‘m really impressed! What a superb plane! Well done, Hans!!!
  15. I also use a 2-axis throttle (Virpil). Since I pretty much got the hang of flying the present version of the CRJ, I will simply keep using it (without update) for the next couple of days and wait until that hotfix is out and tested. Thanks God there is no forced update for add-ons 🙂
