While I agree that this, and other issues, makes this aircraft currently unpleasant to use for extended usage, I don’t think it's fair to imply that it was "a waste of money". If you paid for it now, just put it on the shelf until Aerosoft has had the chance to give it a few patches. If you bought it because you love flying quality aircraft from a reputable company, that's what this will be after some time to get it right. If you haven't bought it yet, maybe wait a bit.
The real problem here is the state of MSFS, I think.
