  1. After SU5, the AIR CON Pack buttons do not illuminate indicating they are off. Just did a flight and realised I never switched them on because there was the missing illumination to start with. Let's just say at 37,000 feet the cabin and cockpit was as cold as a morgue freezer with 69 bodies... XD Unsure if they died from hypoxia or we froze to death.
  2. Here is the Simbrief and this is what I flew and VATSIM controllers didn't change my flight plan as filed. EDDFEDDB_PDF_01Jun21.pdf
  3. Flying in cruise using, entering the STAR and approach I dropped from 45fps to 5fps. At first I didn't realise it was triggered because of the FMC so I dropped my graphics settings to low, and went into window mode instead of full screen to no prevail. I then cancelled the route changes in the FMC and the frames instantly kicked back up to 45fps. Went to edit again and frames dropped instantly until finishing the route amendment and hitting EXEC. This used to be an issue with the Asobo 747 where if editing your flight plan mid-flight or at the very end the simulator dropped to 5fps, even after executing or cancelling. The fix was to delete all previous waypoints for some reason it was taking up a lot of processing power to recalculate the flight plan. Reported it to Asobo and they fixed it with the 747. I assume that this is the same issue with the CRJ.
  4. I do believe it goes up by however long you hold down the switch for, so you can rock it back and forth till your OCD sets in at the correct figure. And pilots don't care for exact figures, the figure they want to be over is the minimum on their loadsheet and under the maximum they'll burn on the flight be under their landing weight. So 100kg over is just excess for the next crew.
  5. @Mathijs KokI got over my OCD rounding to whole dollars at the fuel bowser years ago XD
  6. The SDK is continually being updated and developed and you are taking comments from developers from 6 months ago about the SDK regarding complicated flight systems and dynamics and saying they are still relevant. Aerosoft probably have the best contact with Asobo about getting things fixed but I don't think spoiler and flaps axis is an issue to do with the SDK but more of a bug and/or oversight in a variable not being linked with Asobos default variables and the variables that Aerosoft are using. The flaps is being registered as being moved by a phantom input so I would assume the spoilers would be too in the SDK, its just not linked to display with Aerosofts model yet. What I'm trying to avoid is Aerosoft getting negative comments and blamed for a broken aircraft because people don't realise who are using the number 1 selling throttle quadrant that the spoiler is deployed at 50% for the entire flight. I know the problem exists and I know how to fix it and avoid it. If I was selfish, I wouldn't tell anyone. I care about the real simmer and community and Aerosoft have the best voice to get Asobo to fix things along with PMDG.
  7. Yes, it shouldn't be firing off events, but it does... and there is a subsequent issue that severely affects the performance of the aircraft without alerting the user. If we don't deal with the bugs after updates, then we might as well walk away from developing add-ons.
  8. I use SPAD.neXt as well for my Logitech panels but people shouldn’t have to have third party custom software just so their planes work perfectly with plug and play devices into the Simulator. As I said the issue isn’t that Asobo have stuffed up again with sending phantom inputs when returning from the menu. The issue is for Aerosoft that the CRJ in no way displays the spoiler phantom inputs so users have no in dictation that the spoiler is deployed to 50% like it does with the flaps.
  9. By phantom inputs, I mean the computer is making inputs out of nowhere that is not made be the user through devices. I have the entire TCA Quadrant with TCA Addon aka with the flaps and spoilers controls. The main issue is the CRJ shows no indication that a phantom input has been made with the spoilers leaving the user unknown to the fact that the spoilers are now halfway deployed after returning from the menu.
  10. Have done a video showing the issue. Scenario is climbing at 250 knots in CLB SPD as you can see on the PDF. I then go to the menu and back into flight where then you will see on the left EICAS that the flaps have been deployed to Flaps 8 but the lever is not shown to have moved. I reset the flaps by moving my Thrustmaster axis from the 0 to 1 to 0 position and you'll see the flaps fully retract and the indication disappears from the EICAS. As I said above, this animation is shown in the external model. I then let the plane settle and you will see that the spoilers lever is in the retracted position like the flaps. There is no EICAS message (the dash is blocking the top but I guarantee there is no message) nor is it shown in the outside model animation however I am only climbing at 1000fpm. I then move the Thrustmaster spoiler axis into the 1/2 position and you will see that the climb rate fluctuates for a second but then returns to 1000fpm after it settles. I then retract the axis to 0% and then the plane begins to climb at a normal rate of +3000fpm. This issue is with the TCA Throttle Quadrant with the attached TCA Addon. I know if you didn't have the TCA Addon, by default those were mapped and would get phantom inputs when going from the menu into the simulator so you would need to unmap all the axis and keys you didn't have but this is with the final product all connected.
  11. It's not a major issue if you know what is happening. But with those people out there who haven't figured out that the CRJ has 50% spoilers out after coming form the menu or starting a flight will think something is seriously wrong with the aircraft since the update. I know the CRJ is built different to Asobo aircraft, but would be good for the CRJ systems to register that the axis had a phantom input with the spoiler like it does with the flaps until the problem is fixed by Asobo would be good and that the spoiler inputs reach their extremes no matter what speed you move the axis.
  12. This isn't the issue. When pressing escape and returning back into the simulator, the simulator is receiving a phantom value of 50% for the flaps and spoilers. This is fine on Asobo aircraft because their systems register this phantom value and alert the user. The issue is that the CRJ does not reflect the flaps value in the lever change but does on the EICAS and model animation, but in no way registers that the spoilers are deployed on the EICAS, spoilers lever or animation. To fix this as a user, all you do is move the spoilers and flaps levers a tiny bit and they will re-register with what they are actually at. I'm starting to realise this too. Have only had the TCA Addon for 3 weeks and moving it too quickly will not register the movement in the CRJ. You have to slowly move the lever to its extremes for it to register 0 or 100%. Otherwise move the lever at a normal pace, it doesn't reach its extremes and leaving the flaps deployed still at 5-25%.
  13. Since Asobo's World Update, aircraft flaps and spoilers deploy to 50% when returning from the menu. This happens with the CRJ700 and Asobo aircraft. However behave differently in the CRJ. When returning from the menu, flaps will deploy to Flaps 8 (50%) which is shown on the EICAS, external flight model but not on the flaps lever in the cockpit. The spoilers deploy to 50% (as observed on other Asobo aircraft), but do not show they are deployed on the external flight model, EICAS or spoilers lever. They will sometimes show on the external flight model but only at approximately 1/8th deployed. I noticed the spoilers were deployed when at MAX thrust I was only climbing at 900fpm after takeoff in SPD mode set to a climb of 180 knots. After deploying and then retracting the spoilers, I needed to stay at MAX thrust to climb at more than 900fpm. CLB only provided less than 300fpm which could indicate that the axis is not reaching its dead zone. Upon landing after resetting the spoilers to the retracted position with joystick axis showing 0% and the cockpit lever showing 0, the Master Caution intermittently kept flashing FLT SPLR DEPLOY every 3 seconds. Fuel & Payload was done via SimBrief with a payload of 11,700lbs and 7,500lbs of fuel and are typical of the 80 or so flights I have done since the release of the CRJ700. I repeated this on a second flight and have the same issue. I have only tested this with the 700 and not the 550. Screenshots show what cockpit shows v the external model on a separate test flight with debug window. At this point in time the spoilers were not showing as deployed in debug or animation or indication however the Master Caution debug kept going from 0 to 1 every 3 seconds. Also when resetting the spoilers to be at 0 via the joystick axis, only 1 out of 3 times does the ASCRJ_SPOILER_SET variable reach 0. The other 2 out of 3 times, the value will stop anywhere from 5-20 which explains why I was unable to climb effectively in the CLB gate and had to use MAX.
  14. I have noticed in the cabin model there are no toilets on the CRJ550... Look for yourself.
  15. Lateral navigation oscillates with hard banks left and right trying to get back on FMS NAV course. Most commonly happens after waypoints and doesn't correct itself until next waypoint or 100nm+. If you manually intervene to get back on track using HDG and then back to NAV, it still oscillates.
