SinusJayCee Posted September 2, 2021 Share Posted September 2, 2021 vor 3 Stunden , Seekay sagte: I got my fuel and weights from Simbrief, the flight plan indicated that they were within limits, and I loaded the plane using the EFB's ZFW mode which (presumably) should set the CG correctly and notify me if there's a problem. I don't pay much attention to the CG indicator, I just trust the numbers Simbrief gives me, but I'm absolutely certain that I've never seen the indicator go beyond the takeoff, landing and approach CG limits. SimBrief doesn't care about CG. It just gives you the weight (payload/ZFW, whatever you are looking for) and assumes you set the CG correctly. However, when the plane is loaded using the EFB's ZFW mode, the CG should have been set correctly and within the limits. With the passengers/cargo mode you can mess things up. vor 3 Stunden , Seekay sagte: I didn't check the attitude but I was climbing straight ahead with the HSI centered at 290 knots and had the autopilot speed bug set to 290 so I should've been right on the FD, no? If you have speed mode enabled, speed bug set set to 290 and were actually flying at 290kt, you should have been exactly on the FD (at least regarding the attitude). But has the plane been trimmed for that attitude as well? vor 11 Minuten, TomAce sagte: If you use the original SimBrief profile for the CRJ, you will get the wrong ZFW. SimBrief set the passenger weight differently than the CRJ which again conflict with the EFB and FMS. SimBrief passenger weight includes bags, but the CRJ adds more weight in addition to the passenger weight and therefore the ZFW will be wrong. Note that the SimBrief profile in the download section here is off as well. *edit* I just checked the profile and it in fact uses 84kg per passenger. However, when setting the number of passengers suggested by SimBrief using the EFB, the ZFW was way above what was calculated by SimBrief. I need to check this again and try to figure out the issue.
