  1. Have you looked at this FAQ post?
  2. That was my assumption as well - thanks for confirming! Perhaps that is the root cause of many issues folks are having going direct... in other AC (I'm looking at you Boeing/Airbus), the next "target" fix is at the top (LSK L1).
  3. I have found that putting the direct fix 2nd from the top works (i.e. LSK #2) - is that the correct procedure or a work-around?
  4. Interesting... I know there is a bug that causes approaches with DME arcs to CTD, but it doesn't look like the ILS15 at EGBB has any DME arc (unless I'm looking at the wrong plate).
  5. I have completed 20+ flights with the CRJ and the only time I had a freeze and CTD was when I loaded an approach with a DME arc. Are you trying to load departures or approaches that contain DME arcs on every flight? I've heard the development team is working to fix a lot of things in the next update (specifically the GS capture and tracking, as well as the drunken swerving when flying north in a crosswind), but the only CTD fix I've heard about is for the DME arc bug...
  6. In aircraft design, Vne speeds are determined based on either structural loads (the force caused by the air will cause it to break) or vibration/flutter (the airflow will cause an unstable oscillation that will cause the airframe to break). It is not uncommon for structural margins to be 20%-50% (e.g. if the Vne produces a force of 100 lbs. on a component, that component will break at 150 lbs. of force). Adding additional safety margins increases weight, which is the enemy of aircraft design. Not knowing the results of Bombardier's loads or flutter analysis, we can't say for cert
  7. This is a known bug. If you choose an arrival / approach that contains a DME arc, it will cause the CRJ / MSFS to crash. Based on other comments on this forum, this has been corrected in the development build and will be part of the next update. In the meantime, choose arrivals and approaches without a DME arc.
  8. Some thoughts I posted in another thread:
  9. I had this happen to me right after the update to (the first flight, the HUD started in the down position and would not retract). After closing MSFS and opening it again, the problem went away. Very strange!
  10. It sounds like there is a bug with DME arcs, which is what causes the sim to lock up. Previous posts have indicated that the bug will be fixed in the next update.
  11. Does reloading the the flight fix the issue (see Asobo Known Issues list)? https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016027399-KNOWN-ISSUES-Last-modified-April-21-2021-
  12. I assume you've tried all the tricks in the FAQ (e.g. setting Anti-Ice to visual, checking you don't have any keybindings, etc.)? It's worth a double check, because I've had MSFS settings change on me after an update (both settings and control profiles). I've spent a lot of time pulling my hair out trying to figure out what is wrong (since I knew I'd already changed those settings!), only to find out MSFS changed it back without my knowledge. If you are not in icing conditions (e.g. no "Ice" caution message), you do not need the Wing AI on. Wing AI will cost you about 5% N1 (les
  13. Unfortunately, the runway is 80 ft. too short for the CRJ...
  14. It looks like the longest runway at PHMK is 6 ft. too short, according to the FAA... https://aeronav.faa.gov/d-tpp/2103/00759AD.PDF
  15. Add me to the list of those who experience this issue, though it hasn't stopped me from flying (and thoroughly enjoying) the CRJ. To be specific about what I see: The aircraft will often turn too early when approaching a waypoint, especially when the next course is >45-degrees from the current course. It will bank at 30-degrees to turn to the new heading, but have a cross track error of 1-1.5 nm after rolling wings level. It will then attempt to correct the cross track error by banking 30-degrees the opposite direction, resulting in a decaying oscillation back to course (e.g. und
