CRJ Pro doesn't follow ILS - problem with APR mode

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

I have a problem: every time I try to use an ILS approach, when I push APR, my plane turn to course 360, and this, whatever I choose FMS or VOR/ILS as nav source.

Everything works well EXCEPT the APR! (the same approcach works well with airbuses (A318-19-20-21 and 330).

I have uninstalled/reinstalled the plane 2 times (with total clean of all CRJ folders each times), did a Ccleaner. I have uninstalled the CRJ, uninstalled/reinstalled P3D client (but my P3D was already up to date) and then reinstalled the CRJ (each tim without antiviruses and computer restart between each uninstallation/reinstallation ....).

Can you help me please ? (I didn't have this problem with your previous CRJ)

BRG is good in the FMS (225°)

With the VOR/ILS as source of nav:

I had the same problem in the previous version and this current version and was told they think the only way to fix it is a clean reinstall of P3D.

Did you notice that your heading is always 0 degrees when the AP is not following the commanded heading? To me, this looks like something else is constantly resetting FS's selected heading. Is it possible that you use a hardware knob for course and heading select?

 

@bryank1988 I actually had this issue myself and couldn't find any reason. The debugger showed that the heading was always set correctly, but it was ignored and 0 degrees was used. In the end, what solved the issue for me, was indeed a clean P3D reinstall. I has never happened to me again since.

Thank you for your answer.

No I don't use a hardware knob for course and heading select

 

A clean install (if I read well the forums) means that I have to reinstall ALL my addons (I have so many...) after? I had to do this to solve a problem of hyper climb rate for the Buses ... if I need to do it after each AEROSOFT upgrades, it's infernal.

Yeah not really worth using an addon if you have to reinstall P3D entirely everytime there is a little issue.

Apparently you don't understand what this is about. If you have to reinstall P3D, then it's because it's not functioning correctly anymore. This is mostly due to user error because people install everything and use every so called "tweak" until they completely messed up their sims. People just don't understand that P3D is a highly complex software where one little change can have a whole range of effects.

It's not the CRJ's (or my fault) if P3D's heading and course variables are zero when they should be something else.

Dear Hans;

In Fact P3Dv4.5 works very well as well as all addons (including Aerosoft) EXCEPT the CRJ Pro which doesn't follow the ILS path and systematically goes to CRS 360° when the localizer becomes alive. Again ILS work perfectly with all my other addons (Aerosoft airbuses, Carenado etc.).
