  1. Hello! I'm currently flying out the A330 after quite a long time and noticed that the master warning sound is bugged. Whenever I hit the buttons for the engine or APU fire tests (which should trigger the master warning chime), I only hear a single beep rather than a continuous chime as it was before. I'm attaching a video demonstrating the issue. I'm currently on A330 v1.0.2.1, which is the latest version according to the updater. Some more details: Sim: P3D v4.5 HF3 (Windows 10) Other addons: ASP4, REX SF3D, STKP, Addon airports Default/Startup state: Turnaround Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D® v4 2020-07-24 15-52-16.mp4
  2. Absolutely! Have a few flights planned and will try to fly them with variable CI in order to try and replicate this issue. Will post here if I face it again.
  3. Hi Secondator, Thanks for your reply! Luckily I still had the route saved and am attaching it below. Since it was almost a month ago now, there's not many other details I still have of this flight. Hope this is enough for you to work with! I'd also like to add that I've flown a few more flights with the 330 after this and haven't been able to replicate the issue. Since it only happened when I changed the CI in flight, it may be linked to that action specifically. KJFKLSZH01.flp
  4. Hello, I departed for a long haul flight in the A330 just now and noticed something quite unusual - I'd planned for a CI30 climb (M 0.82) and a CI130 Cruise (M 0.83). Climbing through FL280 I manually edited the CI to 130 and the airplane transitioned to the higher climb IAS of 320, but through the transition to Mach the mach target on the PFD speedtape displayed an unusually low IAS target of 90-100 IAS - which is unusual. However the airplane still held 0.83 Mach through the transition and higher, and the same was indicated on the PERF CLB page. I'm attaching a screenshot below showing this. I've never experienced this on a constant CI climb where I don't edit the CI. This might be a bug - just wanted to get this out there.
  5. Hello, I'd just like to check in on the status of whether this feature will be implemented in the next update. I am currently on and don't notice any difference between the airplane's behavior in the previous versions and this one - as of now I do not feel any difference whatsoever between normal law and flare mode - which makes touching down in the A330 a bit of a task since we're inclined to put in back pressure on the stick at about 30-40 feet but the airplane tends to float down the runway if back pressure is put in. In my past couple of landings the airplane has just about touched down right at the end of the TDZ despite very little back pressure. There is a skybrary article which describes proper flare mode logic from the A330's perspective, which mentions that flare mode in the A330 is similar, but not identical to that of the 320 - whereas in the 320 the airplane takes a snapshot of its current attitude at 50 feet RA and starts pushing the nose down to -2.5 degrees at 30 feet RA, this article states that the 330 goes into flare mode at 100 feet RA and starts the downward movement at 50 feet RA, although no particular attitude target (i.e. 2.5 degrees in the case of the 320) is specified. I am linking it here: https://www.skybrary.aero/index.php/Flight_Control_Laws#Airbus_Flight_Control_Systems Of course, I am not a real world pilot on the A330 and I'm only going off of publicly available information. Can AS confirm whether this is being worked on and/or will be implemented in the next update cycle? Thank you, keep up the good work!
  6. Hi, the weather source in MCDU3 is selected as "Sim Default" but I always use the sim with Active Sky P3D v4 (linked for vatsim weather) and so sim weather always matches Active Sky/VATSIM weather.
  7. Hi, For some reason on my latest flight the FMC stopped working after starting my descent. I used the ATSU to request destination weather from the Captain's side MCDU. After displaying the weather the MCDUs stopped working. I could not hit any buttons (I could, but it was completely unresponsive and stuck on the weather page). The FO side MCDU stopped working as well. In addition to this, the aircraft remained in NAV mode but stopped following the NAV path. The third supplementary MCDU still remained functional. I am using experimental and P3D v4.5 HF2. Update: landed and resetting the panel state has no effect on the frozen MCDUs.
  8. Hi, Just as a little follow up to this old post, has this issue been fixed/still in the works for a fix? I'm asking this as I remember something related to this in the recent patch notes. Don't remember specifically which one it was as the last notes posted on these forums were for, but I'm currently running and am still experiencing the same issue. Load via GSX, set recommended T/O trim as per generated loadsheet after neutralizing MACTOW, yet the aircraft still feels very ponderous in rotation and on initial climbout violently pitches up as (I believe) the aircraft transitions from ground to normal law and the autotrim drives the trim nose up aggressively. Is there a status update to the resolution of this issue?
  9. Hello, Been flying out the A330 recently and have noticed that it has default contrails in P3D v4.5. I have PrecipitFX by Parallel 42 installed and it usually works on every aircraft by default, but I can't seem to see its contrail effects with the A330. If anyone here knows, it'd be great if you could point me to right direction as to how I can edit the aircraft.cfg to utilize PFX's effects! Thank You!
  10. Alright, thanks for letting me know! Guess we'll have to wait for a response from AS on this.
  11. Update: I think this might be something to do with GSX loading as the I've noticed the GWCG in red while in flight. I always load the aircraft through GSX and so this might be a conflict between the aircraft's load distribution recognition and GSX's loading. I'll try again with instant loading and GSX off and see how it goes.
  12. Is this a bug then? Why would the aircraft recommend UP2.3 based on my MACTOW in that case? Thanks
  13. Update: After updating to I've realized that this issue not only takes place with heavy loads, but with light loads as well. Flying with a TOW of 183.7 MT, suggested Vr of 135 flexing to 54 with Flaps 1 and UP2.3 THS, the airplane refuses to rotate until 160-170. One more thing I forgot to add is the aircraft's tendency to violently pitch up on the initial climbout without any control input. It seems that the T/O trim has a delayed effect and only kicks in after rotation. This is just speculation but something is off as I didn't encounter this violent pitch up motion before updating to .0.0.7 (previously using Any input would be appreciated!
  14. Following up on this topic I've had a similar experience. Running of the Bus. Here are some basic figures from the flight: EDDF - KAUS ZFW: 157.0 TOW: 231.0 Fuel Loaded: 75.0 (All figures in Tonnes) Aircraft Calculated VSpeeds: V1: 155, Vr: 155, V2: 160. Flaps/THS: 1/UP1.6 based on a ZFWCG of 33.8. Since there is no dedicated takeoff performance/ATSU Perf Req function for the 330 yet, I went with a TO Flap of 1. In hindsight, I could've probably gone for 2 seeing as how the aircraft was very much near MTOW. What I didn't expect, however, was the aircraft taking nearly the entirety of Frankfurt's 13000 foot runway, well beyond the VSpeeds that the MCDU itself calculated, to even begin to rotate - even with full up elevator. I crosschecked before taxi that my T/O trim was set at the right position, along with all the figures taken directly from the Loadsheet based off of the Simbrief FPL. Actual rotation was around 180-190 knots, even beyond S speed. I haven't had any issues with rotation timings at light loads. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or something off with the airplane's automatic VSpeed calculation? Would love to hear if anyone else has had similar experiences or if anyone could try and replicate this with the figures above. Hope this is addressed soon. Thank You!
  15. My first flight in the A319 (EDDM-EDDL), sadly I wasn't running REX because I had tried a flight earlier and the bad weather had completely messed up my approach lol. (Also, the views you'll see are the default views because EZCA simply destroyed all my views and I had to delete my A319 profile altogether, anyone got a solution to this? I will make another post, just putting this out there) Hope you like the pictures!
