  1. I realise your working on an update for the CRJ after MSFS update 5. But I just wanted to confirm my finding that the FMC is not able to follow the route after the update 5. Also my HUD is non functional. Best of luck fixing the issues created by the 5 update. The CRJ is my favourite goto aircraft. Regards.
  2. Please check the functionality of the CRJ in MSFS after the latest update 5, it's not working correctly. HUD is broken and FMS navigation is no longer accurate. Thanks.
  3. Pressing CLR doesnt clear the scratchpad in the CDU. Pressing DELETE places "DELETE" in the scratchpad and I cant delete that with CLR. Thanks
  4. Selecting hold, I see the CDU displays the parameters. I execute it but I cant get any hold? I can not see any hold on the ND? Thanks
  5. Selecting NDB to display doesnt appear to work. I cant see any on the ND? Thanks
  6. At the moment, patch, I only have issues when the CRJ is attempting to fly a SID. Its reluctant to auto update to the next WP in the SID. It requires multiple Dirto corrections anf repeated Nav pushes? Thanks
  7. Same here I definately didnt use pause, yet the cabin pressure system was broken. The overhead cabin pressure switches dont seem to work and the emergency de pressure system doesnt work either. Good job weve no PAX...just an annoying message! Cheers
  8. All I can add is that I just flew the "Dudes" route, EDLP to EDDM. Route loaded direct from SimBrief. Live weather. Perfect flight. ILS LOC/GS tracked perfectly! Descent done, prior to ILS capture, with VNav following altitude constraints spot on. Dunno what was fixed, but I uninstalled, then reinstalled and added patch Im going to quit while Im ahead! I video recorded the landing in case there was any doubt! Thanks
  9. Above gate 5 there is a floating sign that is 100 m in the air above the terminal. Can this be fixed please? Its a blemish on an otherwise good airfield! Thanks
  10. This is rather disconcerting. I put update on and flew two short flights using FMS and HDG to align with LOC/GS. EGHQ to EGTE. Selecting APPR, the aircraft flew perfect ILS captures? Yesterday, on a lonish flight from EGNT to EGHQ the APPR did not work? I am importing the FP from SimBrief and I am thinking that perhaps that has something to do with the failure to capture ILS, when using APPR after a full flight? I bought Simwings EDDM and dont experience an issue with ILS capture on APPR? Seems like every time I fly, I get diffrerent results......Great fun though...expect the unexpected and always hand fly the CRJ is nice to hand fly! Cheers
  11. I have just seen this behaviour. Approaching EGHQ, ILS 110.5, (RW12,) tuned both sides. Select Appr and I see HDG VGP. ILS (LOC and GS dont arm). This after a full flight from EGNT using flight plan from SimBrief. I tried again, just doing a take off and circuit from EGHQ and everyhting worked normally! Selected Appr and got LOC1 + GS. So it appears to be an intermittant bug? Ive even gone back to the initial install to try to determine if the CRJ update did something? Still intermittant bug in both and 1.0.01. I think its an Asobo bug. Ive been flying the CRJ for years in P3d and have no issues! Thanks.
  12. Hi, my fix is; I uninstalled the CRJ(with 1.0.1 patch) I reinstalled the original version (1.0). I had kept the file from the original purchase. My ILS is now working 100% correctly. I think this is a proof that some code, in the CRJ update patch, broke something in the FMS? Anyway thats my finding, for what its worth. Best regards David
  13. I'm sorry, but after the update CRJ patch my CRJ wont aquire an ILS? The Appr button stays illuminated even if I select it to off. Ive tried now at five airports in MSFS. EGNT, EGCC, EGKK, EGHQ and EGGP. Yes all the frequencies are correcty entered. Ive tried an auto FMS approach, a HDG approach and manual, all onto, what should be the LOC with the GS carret above my entry. I did have success before the patch but now sadly not so? Perhaps I should reinstall the CRJ? Thanks.
  14. Ive re-flown the route 4 more times. Once in the FBW Neo, to compare accuracy! Im getting consistent route following with the FMS now. I have a 20 knot X-Wind component. It seems OK. Two more issues have surfaced however. In the climb out from EGCC to 5000' (first SID constraint), the aircraft will consistently overshoot the altitude constraint. Going to 6000'++. This is with Speed climb mode and speed set at 182 (+10 Vref) P2ATC gets upset! Also in the climb out, after AP select on, unless I select NAV twice ( deselect and reselect) the aircraft flies runway heading and wont turn to the first SID WP..(MCT DME2...LIST2R-RW23R, SID) I select NAV mode on the runway prior to roll. But at least the aircraft will follow FMS route. I am flying a southerly track, I havn't tried any other directions, so dont know if its compass related or not? Cheers. EDIT. Finally, at EGKK I couldnt get the aircraft to track the ILS. Freqs were correct and I had LOC/GS on PFD, but the landing path veered off to the left of RW26L and no GS capture. I went around but saw that I couldnt de select the APP mode switch, it stayed illuminated. Further attempts to land with ILS and AP were futile. So I surmise my PC is having a bad day, Im having a bad day or since the update patch something has changed. Ill try other airports and flight tomorrow.
  15. OK, so I re flew the exact route. EGCC EGKK with same SimBrief flight plan, but an hour later. So had slightly different wind conditions, as SimBrief updated the weather for the FMS download.. (MSFS Live weather) I had no problems with the FMS following the route, for the second flight? The wind was almost identical. I have flown the CRJ in P3d for very many hours and in MSFS this is my favourite aircraft. So I am familiar with its systems. I must conclude that it was an Asobo Glitch that caused the aircraft to fly so poorly, as a one off? The only other thing I'd mention is that on both occasions, I saw the aircraft fail to turn left (south) onto the SID (LISTO2Y) after taking off from 23R at EGCC. The AP was put in at 1700'AGL and commenced a climb to selected altitude 5000' on speed mode, at 195 knots. But the LNav remained at runway heading until I forced a Dirto HON. Thus circumventing the SID? This happend on both flights. Ill do some more flying and see if I can reproduce. But the winds are light at the moment over EGCC. Cheers.
  16. I put on the Aerosoft CRJ update patch today and I now see a poor LNav performance. Before patch all was fine? Specifically, aircraft rolling constantly as it "hunts" for the FMS track? Progress page shows XTK varies R and L over 1 NM as aircraft rolls left and right! Very unpleasant to fly now. Selecting HDG mode and all is well again. It looks loke the fault was in the FMS? In STAT page I see a "wing cowl A/I on", green message? Never seen that one before...does that make a difference? Winds were steady at 26 knots, 17 knot headwind, 18 knot crosswind. Thanks.
  17. I press "copy perf init data to FMS" and FMS total weights are not updated? EG. ZFW 26577 KG/ 33.3% TOW 29774 KG in EFB. FMS Perf Init = 22889 KG ZFW 25909 KG GWT Aft and Fwd caro is updated accurately. Fuel is updated OK, just the total weights dont update the FMS? Updating to sim gives inaccurate total weight of 28623 KG. I am using patch number 1. Thanks. Kind regards David
  18. Its the Speed select that disengages after take off and the will only re engage at current aircraft speed! I no longer use speed select before take off to initiate climb to selected altitude.
  19. At EGKK gate 3. GPU selected and connected. CRJ EFB shows "Ground cart removed" and is greyed out. I select AC on overhead and try DC but no power from GPU? Is it me or an Asobo issue? Or is the CRJ not recognising there is a GPU connected? Thanks.
  20. Copy that! On the other hand your FMS route execution is absolutely superb! It looks like you recoded the Asobo model since the CRJ flies the route impeccably without any silly USR waypoint additions that send you back 180 degrees. You currently have the very best pax aircraft in MSFS......beating the FBW because they still use Asobo waypoints! Thanks. Regards David
  21. Thanks Hans. I suspect this is an Asobo issue, since I dont recall it in the P3d CRJ? I will re fly with airspeed a bit lower. Regards. David
  22. Hello. I see similar results. I will try and record a video. My route is as per SimBrief. EGKK to EGPN. (PDF attached) Before take off, I have the first constraint of FL056 entered into AP altitude select. I select Speed mode and enter climb reference speed at V2 + 20 (approx 165). I select Nav mode. I select TOGA, take off and at 1700' engage AP. Aircraft climbs at selected speed mode but overshoots the selected altitude of FL056. I will fly this again and record a video. Thanks. Regards David I climb to 1700' after takeoff. EGKKEGPN_PDF_1616856918.pdf
  23. Hi, loving the MSFS CRJ, however; The aircraft will overshoot the first selected altitude in both speed climb mode and VS mode. For example, first constraint in SID is 5000'. I set 5000' as target altitude, FMS flight plan also has 5000' as first constraint. Take off in speed mode v2 +20 and aircraft overshoots 5000' and keeps climbing well above 6000' before I get a telling off from ATC! (Pilot2ATC). I then have to use VS descent to re acquire 5000', or disengage AP and go manual. Same overshoot happens in VS mode with VS at a modest 2000 FPM. I may say I have no problems in descent. The VNav is perfect! Thanks.
