Yes, just assign an axis to Nose wheel steer in the sim.

Pretty sure the answer is yes but is it the same with fsuipc? (Haven't got the pro) Will we have to assign an axis to it. Cheers can't wait

I simply do not know about FSUIPC, there is simply zero reason to use FSUIPC for an axis like this.

Yes but again, why would you do it? I know there were some advantages in FSX but not in P3D.

Hi Dave, my apologies I meant F2 (the default command) and not F12.

 

Did you test it after touchdown or just when the aircraft was first loaded up at a standstill? Reason I ask is that it does work perfectly when at the gate for example but doesn't upon landing for some reason. I did raise the issue a while ago too in the support forums: 

I'll do some more testing my end.

Best wishes,

Aaron

 

 

I tested with an RTO.  I can check the next time I land.

 

By the way, make sure the P3D setting Slider for Trust Decrease Quickly (or whatever it's called) is set all the way to the right.

Dave I need a bit more info om the exact name on that slider.....

 

Boss,

 

Sorry, I posted via my phone earlier as I wasn't home.

 

The Command / Key Bind is Throttle Decrease Quickly.  There is a slider to the right side of the command in the P3D control bindings page, which should be set all the way to the Right side.  Screen shot below.

Hey team! I asked about this a while ago and you guys said you would research it, but was curious if you guys made a decision on this. On your current a320 professional I hear that the retard callout happens before 20 feet is called or sometimes even says retard over the 20 foot callout. My Airbus friend I’ve spoken to said that the retard callout happens after the 20 feet callout and doesn’t step over it and I was just curious if this will like this in the A330 on release?

 

For now it will stay as it is on the smaller busses.

Will the RAF MRTT version have air refuelling hoses ?

 

As we will not do a MRTT version the answer is a resounding no.

Why the cockpit door cam is not on the system display? and why we don't have different cam vision when we click on the cam sel button?

 

Where did you see this is not the case? It seems you could only know this is not yet implemented if you had access to the files and since you are not on the beta list....  How do you know?

I just saw on the last a330 cockpit previews you don't put the same function to show the cockpit door cam, and in the a320 when you push the cam sel we have only one cam vision.

We modeled that in the A330. It's just a different panel as in the A320.

The CAM selection in the A320 is something on the to do list.

I know some people like to know the  ins and outs of a development like this and here is a very good example of the kind of work we are doing right now.

These are descent profiles (and yes, they take many many hours of testing to make). They are pretty accurate, or rather very accurate, right now but we wondered about the 'bump' you see in the 250 knots lines around the 200T GW mark. After talking to our advisory pilots it turned out to be correct. 

 

But here is the $64.000 question (okay not 64k but a free copy for the first person to answer correct): what less desirable flight characteristic of the A330 does this bump show?

It is interesting to see that 160t and 200t nearly got the same behaviour related to the AOA but adding 50t more the curve moves significantly downwards. (increase the AOA)

As far as I know the A330 is an aircraft with a perfect "glider behaviour" and so it might be possible that at certain weights and speed the COG abnormally moves which causes this effect.

At 250 KIAS and at 200 tons gross weight, the aircraft’s pitch up attitude will be higher then average compared to along the profile line? This requiring more thrust to maintain the higher pitch attitude on average then without the bump?  This higher pitch attitude is required in order to maintain a higher AOA to produce lift at that airspeed and weight, requiring more thrust to enable that state of AOA.

 

Nope.

the less desiderable maybe 250kts at 160T...to near to 200T. Seem climb to 200T performace in the middle of the curve.

 

Nope.

Due to the bump, even though the aircraft has a lower weight a lower angle of attack than the average will be required to achieve the desired -3 decent rate. This will result in the aircraft airspeed increasing, requiring pilots to use speed brakes, which is undesired, as it causes disruption to airflow, passenger comfort and increases noise levels.

 

Right!  

 

The 330 wing is extremely efficient. It's almost impossible to both go down and slow down. Hence if your heavy it will want to speed up. Vice versa if your light it will want to level out. Especially at a mid range speed. You need to be either fast (higher drag coefficient) or slow to get down.  We are sure a lot of simmers will be caught out by this (and many will feel it is a bug).  It's not an easy aircraft to descent with.

 

Neel, when we launch send me an email (mathijs.kok@aerosoft.com) and I'll make sure you get a free download.

zoom beside the parking brake, it's not the same modeled as the a320. You put a screen tv above the middle jumpseat to see the cockpit door cam.

 

You really should update because we changed that years ago.

What are the axes of the descent graphs? Is the X axis gross weight in tons and the Y axis AOA?

For sure there will be a few things to finish. We'll be honest and open about that so customers can decided when they want to buy.

First time commenting on this forum! Been following the development for a long time now and super excited about getting my hands on the A330! Been flying the 320 Pro series like crazy to get ready for this one!

 

My questions is do the developers internally know if Old Prop are working on an Immersion package for A330?

 

And if they are planning to have one for the A320 64 bit one too if the A330 is in the works?

 

Many Thanks guys. 

 

Super Excited for the 330! Keep up the great work!!!!!

I have no idea about oldprop is working on something. I do know we are adding some non standard effects to the aircraft however.

I know this was mentioned a while back but any update on if there will be some kind of 'jump ahead' or 'auto-cruise' feature similar to the QW787 or PMDG stuff?

 

To be honest we have not really spend serious time on it. In cruise it will do 4X so that's not bad.

Hey guys,

I´ve got a question concerning the flight sim version compatibility. Will the incoming A330 be compatible with P3dV4.4 (and below) or 4.5 only?

 

Cheers!

 

We will release for P3Dv4.5. Compatibility with older versions of P3D is not assured.

 

Best wishes!

Once the new Microsoft sim has be launched and Aerosoft look to import the A330 into it, will we have to pay full price again or will Aerosoft follow the same path as PMDG with their pricing and offer 100% credit towards the MFS2020 version?

 

It's way too early to tell, because there is really no way to assess what work will have to be done.  That said, Aerosoft's policy of not charging customers twice for the same files will still be in effect, so you won't have to pay full price unless we have to create 100% of new files.

 

Best wishes!

I have a question regarding the EFB placement, is it on the captain side only or available on both sides?

On the CRJ video I saw the EFB only on the CPT side, if I remember that correctly.

 

We are still looking at how framerate demanding this is. 

 

At Aerosoft we sell airports, tools and scenery and want to be sure it  all plays well together. What we see from developers who only do aircraft is that they tend to disregard the load these add-ons out on the sim. For them the aircraft is the focus and if you need to lower settings for the world around you that is a price you pay for using their product. I (we) do not agree with that.  I will drop features like a hot potato when it cause FPS issues. If you disregard the resources the sim needs I feel that aircraft should be allowed to use 40%, scenery 40% leaving 20% for weather etc.

I wonder if there could be a zoom on the Nav display, if there isn't one already planned.  On certain flights when I check the flight plan it looks fine when I'm at the gate,  however when you get close to the airport around the Star you then see that we have an approach that has issues with it.   I guess it's because that view as you approach is zoomed in much closer than what you can see from the ramp.  I can explain it more if you don't understand it,  but it's the ability to really see that last part of the flight in detail when your back before pushback

 

And is there a reason who you can't simply use the sim zoom option? Shift-  left mouse button - mousewheel?

And TBH and really do not understand what you mean. Can you give an example with a screenshot? But please open another topic. Do not post it here in this preview forum.

I think he means clicking on the Nav Display and having a 2D panel pop out.
