  1. Hi Masterhawk. I don't use EZDok, so that topic could not solve my problem. I unistalled and re-installed the FSUIPC.INI and apparently the problem was solved... Thanks anyway for the info !
  2. Dear Big Bus drivers. I'm experiencing a weird issue during takeoff in the A330 Professional for P3DV4.5 During takeoff roll, the acceleration is normal until approximately 40-50 kt. Then, the speed "jumps" to more than 200 kt. Is anybody experiencing this issue ? If so, how to solve it ? Thanks for the help
  3. Mathijs , It seems that the Fuel transfer rate from the Outer to the Inner tanks is too low. The ECAM alert should be displayed when fuel quantity in the inner tanks is below 2520 Kg. Before that, when the inner tank fuel quantity is below 3500 kg, the outer-to-inner transfer starts, and keeps the inner tank level between 3500 and 4000 kg. It seems that in cruise flight the transfer rate is low and barely keeps the tank at the level it had when the transfer started. Once in descent, the transfer rate is higher than the fuel flow and the inner tank quantity gets above 4000 kg and the alert disappears. It's a matter of increasing the transfer rate from the outers to the inners.
  4. I've found that sometimes the FOB quantity is not decreasing by the same amount fuel used is increasing. For example, during my last flight (SAME-SCEL) my block fuel after leaving the gate was 11600 kg. After burning 1500 Kg (as seen on the¨F.Used in ECAM Fuel page) I should have 10100 Kg of FOB. But sometimes this quantity is higher. In this particular case. I landed with 8640 Kg of FOB and 4430 kg of Fuel Used. It means that my block fuel was13070 Kg, when I had left the gate with only 11600. At some momentin flight the fuel quantity increased by about 1500 Kg.
  5. Gentlemen... I have made some long haul flights, and the Aerosoft A330 FMGS seems to have the following issues. When fuel is transfered from the wing tanks to the triom tank, the FMGS considers that this fuel is "lost" and thus the fuel predictions which were comfortable on dispatch, suddenly become low or even negative. Once the trim tank fuel is pumped back to the wing tanks, the EFOB on destination and altn airports start to rise. The fuel calculation algorythm must be improved. Actual fuel consumption is more or less realistic, according to some fuel flow tables that I have from the A330 FCOM. Actually I'd say the plane is burning aroun 10% less in crise than what's supposed to, according to the FCOM. Fuel calclation function in INIT B page is not working. Nor is the Wind Data request. In very long flights, even a minor Wind variation can yield to large EFOB variations. Always use the primary method (which works from the Piper Cub to the A380) for fuel calculation: Distance divided by Groundspeed multiplied by your fuel flow is the required amount to reach destination. Happy flights! Paulo M. Soares
  6. Muy buenos dias, capitán !!!! I understood that you were a crew member and flew DC8-51s for Aeronaves Del Mexico, right ? Could you please tells us more about it? How does the Aerosoft's DC8 compare to the real one? Systems and flight model wise. We would be glad to hear from you! Thanks in advance ! Muchas gracias ! Paulo M. Soares
