  1. Can confirm, I have A320/321, Q400, CRJ, 747, 777, A330, 737NG FCOM's, FCTMS, OM's, ODM's and technical documents of various operators and have not seen any tables in exact ISA conitions. Also, using graphs to bend the sim performance to fit one certain condition is not a good practice since it might work very well in condition X but will totally break in condition Y. A correct way of doing this is by simply simulating an external engine performance model of a turbofan/turboprop engine, like various other developers do. This of course results in the correct (or very close) performance values in various ISA +/- X conditions. There are plenty of people, especially engineers, who study aircraft performance, fluid dynamics and aerodynamics, who often know a lot more than actual airline pilots when it comes to the technical side of things. Dealing with perf. graphs and calculations is daily business so to speak.
  2. You are missing my point. All of those are USER crated liveries and vary in quality/accuracy. Half of the old Airbus Extenden etc. liveries are hardly compatible with the new busses anyway. Or at least only after a tedious workaround/procedure. Again, only my opinion. Majestic, or Tfdi offer in-house liveries of all, if not most operators as well.
  3. Sorry, but I have to chime in here in regards to liveries. How does a state of the art, mainline, 60€-70€ product for Prepar3d get released with so few and such random stock liveries these days? Compare that to pretty much every other aircraft addon, be it the 717, Q400, or the "very popular" Boeing's and they get released with pretty much every livery that can be found of the modeled type in real life. Does Aerosoft really lack the man-power to create aircraft liveries and has to force their main 3d modeller to do such tasks? I mean even every DCS aircraft addon, which often times even costs less, comes with every imaginable squadron scheme that ever existed. In my opinion many and highly accurate liveries add so much more value to an aircraft addon and also lure in more customers who might be drawn to the product just by the sheer fact that a livery of their local airline is included. This is one of the reasons why repainters like Tavers or Goldstar Textures are so popular among the community. Just ask yourself a question - if someone who let's say lives in Portugal, Ireland or Russia does not see a TAP, Aer Lingus or Aeroflot livery on the store page - why should he buy this product if his favorite airline isn't even included and he has to wait for another customer to create such the hopes that it is accurate and not just some random ms-paint rendition that has wrong colors, fonts and proportions...
  4. No Swiss, TAP, Turkish?
  5. Will we be able to open 2L?
  6. Wait, is this some customer option? Because as far as I know the real CRJ9 doesnt do that. There's a reason for the nav source selector, let alone the common TR with the CRJ2.

    CRJ 700/900X Update Progress

    Could you maybe publish the changelog alredy?

    CRJ 700/900X Update Progress

    On a sidenote - when can we expect the Connected Flightdeck to be implemented into the CRJ? Would certaily make the bird a LOT more fun to fly.

    CRJ 700/900X Update Progress

    The funny thing is I don't even have any axis asigned via FSUIPC as I use the free version. All axis were asigned via P3Dv4 - including the steering axis for the tiller. And it also wasn't icing since the EICAS would warn one about that, should any probe-heaters fail etc. I've read the CRJ manuals (real ones) and I do have a good undertstanding what the airplene is capable of and how it should perform within the normal envelope.

    CRJ 700/900X Update Progress

    Looking forward to the changelog. Is the excessive drag bug fixed in SP1 that happened for various unknown reasons before?
  11. Why is the V/DEV still magenta? It should be green.

    N1 going down when advancing thrust

    I have the same issue. When you advance power (and my joystick/htrottle has 0 spikes as all other aircraft work fine) the N1 first drops then rises.

    So how good a pilot are you?

    That is actually the MAJOR effect (downside) of sharklets. The reduced induced grad and thus reduced descent rate while maintaining or reducing the speed. Ask any Airbus pilot who has flown the sharklets. That's aerodynamics 101.

    So how good a pilot are you?

    Unable, because sharklets reduce the induced drag and thus make the descent capabilities a lot worse than on non-sharklet busses. Ask for an extended downwind. Unless you want to drop the anchor (gear), go full spoiler + AP off (stuka mode) and try your luck of course... just like the russians do it.
