  1. Before I say another word, let me say that I am a moderator and tech support guy here, which means that I receive some free software from time to time for doing what I love, helping fellow flight simmers... something I've been doing around the flight sim community for a very, very long time. In other words, I don't speak for Aerosoft in this forum, and I would never try to. Given that I worked for Honeycomb and (for lack of a better word) their parent company, I am loathe to jump into threads such as these. But when a company is complained about which I know takes the best care a
  2. Nice to hear from you! I believe that I found a way to calibrate the Honeycomb Throttle Axis, however given how the firmware is designed there is a 30% chance that it would permanently wreck the Bravo. You can wreck the Alpha in a similar manner, so I know the possibility is very real. Since I don't want to wreck my only Bravo, I can't test this method so I contacted my former company (Honeycomb) and told them I believe I found a excellent and easy calibration method, and asked them to send me a returned Bravo to test the method on. They said they would, and it's been close to 2
  3. Bob's memory is better than mine! I don't use FS2Crew, but it's certainly a good thing to check. Here is what I would do. 1. Ensure you have the most up to date version of FS2Crew. 2. Check Direct X by typing "dxdiag " in the Windows search box (on the left side of the Task Bar) and check the Sound and Input Tabs to see if any problems are noted. 3. What other applications were running that inface with flight sim abd generate sounds? Examples: VATSIM, IVAO, POSCON, FS2Crew, Weather Engine, etc? 4. Are you able to recreate this issu
  4. With very few exceptions (and I don't think you'll come across them) it's the same as P3D. There is no manual, just videos which can be found by searching for "Honeycomb How To Video". The videos published by Aerosoft are awesome. Here is a link to my search: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Honeycomb+Bravo+How+To+Video
  5. Unknown. Mine works fine on 2.0 or 3.1. I don't have 3.2, but given how USB Specs are not coordinated (at ALL) in the industry there is room for speculation on 3.2. I will endevor to keep an eye on it.
  6. The "Manual Calibration" is the the name that Honeycomb gave the procedure, so that's is what he's asking. If your Alpha is not connected directly to a computer USB port (as in, not via a Hub) then please try doing that and giving the Manual Calibration another whirl. Additionally, please ensure your Alpha is not connected to a USB 3.0 Port. USB 2.0 or 3.1 or later is fine, but there are compatibility issues with USB 3.0 ports. Honeycomb products are USB 2.0, and 3.1+ is truly backwards compatible but USB 3.0 can cause timing issues with USB 2.0 devices.
  7. It's normal for the altitudes to be populated. If you get different instructions, you just change them. Many times the clearance would be "Descend via the JIIMS3 arrival" and they'd give you short cuts traffic permitting. Best wishes.
  8. That is usually an axis calibration or axis reversal issue in P3D.
  9. That sounds like a WIndows Audio setting, look at the Windows Sounds application, Communications Tab and select "Do Nothing". Hopefully that's it.
  10. Just adding a little additional information. The reason there are no MSFS drivers for users is because Asobo writes the binds and functions in MSFS. This might change sometime next year, but that's how it is for now. Best wishes!
  11. One of the best posts describing Pitch Over Speed I've seen here in the forums! Nice work my friend. These are important concepts and operations for pilots / flight simmers to understand.
  12. Yeah, so long as the aircraft doesn't have FADEC, though I suppose it's still possible even with a computer helping out. Each engine has a different amount of wear, different amount of wear on different parts, different oil pump pressures, different N1, N2, EPR and other related pressures, and of course slightly different thrust outputs. While it's not something most flight simmers look at and therefore most developers don't bother with, there are a handful of flight sim airliners which do model this and in my opinion the one that does the best job modeling it is the Leonardo Ma
  13. Aircraft without a FADEC can work exactly the same way, though it this due to the engines rather than a flight sim controller, so for such aircraft it's fairly realistic. But to answer your question, no, there is no calibration software or procedure (other than Windows).
  14. The temp in the sim would affect this as well, not to mention winds. From what I recall neither are very accurate yet.
  15. I hate scalpers, and when I was with Honeycomb I worked very, VERY hard to ensure that scalpers of Honeycomb items was reduced as much as humanely possible. To be honest, 30% is not too much more over retail and may reflect the cost of import if the item is already in your country. The warned however that there are people pushing items that have issues, items that the user thought was too expensive to ship back for repair and they try to dump them on unsuspecting users. We had a few cases like this, and the second owner tried to have the unit repaired under warranty, which wasn't NOT going t
  16. I understand it's difficult for non-pilots who are also new flight simmers to understand this, but this is just not helpful. There are quite a few things which are taken into account when determining your reference and approach speeds, so asking an operator which speed they land at or when the retard thrust levers (thrust levers for het aircraft, throttles for props) is one of those "garbage in, garbage out" type questions and answers. The flight dynamic profiles for the Aerosoft Airbus' are pretty good, so we can rule those out for the issues you are having. If you can make a sh
  17. Whoa, there is a great video for this, and you only have to wait a few seconds to get to the part you're asking about. And, guess which aircrash it's for? Here's somehting which you may find even more helpful. People are always most welcome to post whatever questions they may have and we are always happy to answer them, ALWAYS! After all, we're all flight simmers too, and we got our start (no punn intended) just like you and everyone else in the community. That said, the Flight Simulation community has been around now for over 40 years, and the lev
  18. Rarely is there a question in flight sim that hasn't aready been asked and answered, so I found the following right here in our forum! Best wishes my friend!
  19. I would like to chime in here, as there is another possibility. There some nepharious people who use incredmental code email address generators to send out hundred of thousands of emails via VPNs. Internet routers will eventully close down email blasts when they reach a certain number, and these automated systems will then move via their VPN or generate a different email header, or any number of different means to continue to send out the blasts. It's almost impossible to stop without affecting Internet serive to millions of people. Today more so than ever, human looking at and
  20. Is perhaps Flight Saving enabled in FSUIPC for those who are having the issue? Sure sounds like this might be it, and this could certainly cause what you're seeing.
  21. This may be that a particular sound was called and that called the crash. Since the Airbus is known to play the called sounds without a CTD, I would look more carefully at FS2 Crew. Best wishes!
  22. Because we believe this topic has been answered we have closed it. If you have any more questions feel free to open a new topic.
  23. I understand Chris, but there is a reason for why this has always (without a single exception) been the case in flight simulation. The reasons have differed with each new simulator. This is so native to flight simulation it's akin to our breathing, and as a computer and technical quality assurance engineer who has worked multi-million and multi-billion USD ($) systems, and as someone who has also worked manyt complex aircraft in the flight sim community, I'm just telling you this is how it is and likely will always be no matter who the developer is. This being the case, it's a "Ho
  24. My friends, We recently had a disgruntled user post in this thread several times. While we certainly don't like anyone having issues with any of our products, everyone knows that the CRJ was the first complex third party airliner developed for a brand new simulator which itself is still finding issues to correct. Moreover, and speaking as someone who has been in the flight sim community from the very start over 40 years ago and has seen this play out more times than I can count, every single system and installation no matter how similar, is different and this explains in part why
  25. Sorry Mat, to the best of my knowledge no further changes on this are planned. Best wishes!
