    CTD also with P3D 4.4

    Agreed, an elaborate statement on Tfdi's part is long overdue.

    CTD also with P3D 4.4

    Hope this gets fixed at some point.

    Are icing effects modeled?

    Not as far as I'm aware of. However programs like Active Sky simulate icing by adding weight to the aircraft.

    Boeing 717-23S Volotea "Marco Volo" (Circa 2019) EC-MGT

    Great stuff! Was waiting a long time for something like this! Any chance of a Delta bird from you as well?

    How to tell plane to slow to and maintain Vapp.

    Seems to be fixed in the latest update anyway.

    Latest update (1.1.1.0) broke the 717

    Had this issue again - what fixed it was hitting the "ready to fly" panel state in the EFB and reconfiguring the plane real quick. I know this is just a workaround but thought I'd let people know.

    Internal shadow model

    Will you guys maybe add a complete internal shadow model to the 717? Because currently if you sit in the VC, the wings and body of the aircraft are non-existant and thus don't cast a shadow, so at certain angles you just see the model of the VC casting a shadow and not the entire aircraft. Would be cool if this P3D specific feature could be added in the future as it really adds to the immersion.

    Company routes.

    For example, if you are flying from say KBOS to KMSP you type in KBOSKMSP01 into the scrath pad and insert it into the COROUTE field on the Init page. Don't put in any origin or destination before that though.

    CTD also with P3D 4.4

    To be honest the lack of statement from Tfdi and vaugue promises regarding the view-change CTD is worrisome. In my opinion, having read all the real world 717 manuals, the Tfdi 717 is a really great simulation of said plane, all the major systems behave as they should, the engine start sequence was fixed in the latest update as well, it looks better than anything else on the market right now, animations are great, sounds are excellent and the flight model is believable - even though it's the default P3D/FSX one. The LNAV and PROF is also some of the best I've seen in flightsim so far, it tracks the pre-programmed routes and procedures beautifully and never got me in any trouble so far. The only thing that is a pretty big bummer are said CTD's. I have kind of accepted the fact that it is a VC only aircraft and flew it that way for a while, until I got a CTD in cruise when I minimized P3D to do something else (something I do without any problems with other addons). I also found that using the addon manager to set payloads etc. is amplifying my chances of getting a CTD for some reason. Without it I've often been able to switch views without any problems. With that being said, dear Tfdi team, if you can get this plane stable and solve all these CTD issues everyone keeps having then you'll have one of the best, if not the best, regional jet on the market right now. Solving said CTD should be a number one priority.

    Latest update (1.1.1.0) broke the 717

    Seems to be working. However, I had a CTD when trying to minimize P3D (which I usually do on longer flights in cruise).

    1.1.1 & CTD / Fail to Load

    I had a CTD in cruise when minimizing p3d. Could load and start the 717 with no problem tho. p3d v4.4 here.

    Latest update (1.1.1.0) broke the 717

    Just loaded up the 717 at a random airport and the engine start worked normally this time. So I guess that's a new bug?
  13. Right, so today I installed the latest update and decided to do a flight and try it out, since the fuel flow logic and various other things were supposedly fixed. When starting the right (number two engine) and observing the paremeters everything seemed flawless, FF followed by a TGT increase and good spoolup. I thoguht to myself "finally, now this is really good and immersive" - boy was I wrong. When subsequently firing up the left hand (number one) engine I observed an instant fuel flow of around 8000+ LB/H - odd. The N1 seemed to be stuck as well even though the N2 was normal. During the takeoff roll the actual EPR seemed to spool up correctly, the engine however was not producing any thrust so I had to abort the takeoff. Shutting down and trying to restart it did not help, neither did re-loading the flight. Such a bummer.
  14. So basically, I'm on an ILS, fully intercepted but the commanded FMS speed is way too high and I would like to slow down to the calculated/inserted Vapp. How do I do this using the FMS and not just selecting the speed on the FGCP.

    Issues with AIRAC 1813 rev1

    Yeah, I reverted back to 1812. The latest one is botched up.
