  1. Longest 717 flight

    Qantas (Qantaslink) use the 717 in a lot of Outback routes covering large distances Cairns to Alice Springs 786nm Perth to Broome 941nm Cairns to Uluru( Ayers Rock) 1000nm Alice Springs to Perth 1120nm Perth to Adelaide 1200nm
  2. 1 hour into 2 hour flight in P3Dv4.1 switch from cockpit view to external view, Prepar3D crashed, don't know if it was caused by the 717 or Chase Plane, in any case I've attached the log files that may be of help to you. (added txt file extension so I could drag into post) TFDi_Design_717.log.txt
  3. All normal until 90mins into a 2 hour flight(QF1949 YBCS-YBAS) then FMS surround and overhead texture changed to Gold...latest build, never happened prior to this update. Prepar3D v4.0 Steve
  4. Wondering if it will be soon. Steve
  5. Post your best 717 Screenshots here

    QF1730 YMML-YBBN Prepar3d v4 ENVTEX PTA (v4)
  6. Did you push the yellow button on top of the control column to cancel the autopilot disconnect sound?
  7. Cold and Dark Gnd Pwr Gen switches in On position

    They are ON in the Cold and Dark state. In previous versions they were OFF in this state. What are they supposed to be when the AC is in Cold and Dark State?
  8. Used to be that when the aircraft was set to Cold and Dark from the Tablet Menu the Left and right Overhead Generator and the Ground Power switches were in the OFF position and had to be turned on, at the appropriate check and flows, now, they are always in the ON position. Even if they are turned OFF, then Cold and Dark again selected from the Tablet, they have been turned to ON. Which is the correct position for this aircraft State. Steve
  9. Direct To not working

    Two separate flights, both times selected "Direct To" different waypoints in the FMC, waypoint shown at top of waypoints in scratchpad. Instead of tracking to requested waypoints, àircraft turned toward previous waypoint not desired "direct to ". V1.0.9
  10. After a 3 hour flight from YBAS Alice Springs the 717 shot a Perfect ILS at Perth. P3d v3.4 NO VAS or OOM ...performed flawlessly
  11. Do you know a work around for those that have Office 32 bit installed. Is this an issue for Team TFDi?
  12. Few issues with latest update

    They are on medium now, turning down, doesn't affect lagging. I'm not sure if Chaseplane has any impact on the 717, I know I get lag with the AS A320(something the CP developers are aware of), but that is with every aspect not just the knobs,switches
  13. Few issues with latest update

    I7 4790k@4.0ghz 20gig DDR3 gtx1060 win 10 pro anniversary 64bit
  14. Few issues with latest update

    No, I though of that..on/off doesn't improve it.
  15. Hello Team 717 Dont know if the Opt in Beta is still running with the release of .8 but here are a few issues brought to my attention during a recent flight with the latest build. Prepar3d v3.4 The flight was 3 hours in duration QF1851 YBCS-YAYE (Cairns to Connellan ) 1051nm During taxi and Cairns and Connellan I noticed that the nose wheel was not as responsive and seem to 'castor', in some cases during the turn it moved full right or left but the aircraft continued straight ahead, power settings were at minimal and had to be backed right off to idle before steering restored, but as stated it's not as responsive as past versions. There is a definite 'lag' when turning switches such as heading etc before the actual turn registers in the HDG eg turn right to 030 - dial moved a couple of clicks then the 030 hdg shows in the window, it is not instantaneous. This also applies to altitude, radio, speed - anything that should give an instant reading when the dial clicked doesn't. All in all, the 717 has improved immensely but for a few minor glitches. It is now reliable enough to use online for VA flights, which I have now completed 6 times for a total of 13 hours, no VAS or OOM issues and it is now an aircraft I look forward to flying. I intent concentrating on doing a few 717 flights in Prepar3D v4 for comparison and making use of the extra memory availabe. steve
