Quote from: Chris Liu on Wed 27 Feb 2019, 14:32TLDR: If someone makes a quality E190, E190-E2 or A220-100 we will add it for longer London City flights. But I don't know of any near release.
QuoteBought it (175 - 195 since I fly the 195 IRL), some first impressions:- Some MCDU pages are missing (like Flaps selection at TO and LDG, RTE send you to FPL, FIX page is incomplete)-Start Up procedure is ok, couple of thing missing (some EICAS messages)- AP is way too violent- in TRS TO-3 is missing- can't set the altimeters to STD: the click spot it's hard to find- Anti Ice remains ON after TO and never turn off during flight.- PFD/ND are a bit hard to read in some moments and some fonts overlaps- VC model is too big and proportions are wrong (not too big deal for me)- It's nice to hand fly-FPS are great, really light on the sim.- External model is super (even if on the 195 the 2R door is too big)- Pitch during the Approach it's WAY to high (on the 195): at flare I was at almost 20° with Flap 5.Hope to see some updates in the future to address some of these things, I think that 60$ it's a bit overpriced...for that money it should be better.......what I have seen at the moment the aircraft is not really well made. I had to set the trim a 8UP to land it with flap 5 which is not even close to the real figures. Fuel capacity is totally wrong: real plane takes 13192Kg of fuel while this stops at 9330 (and I suspect that also the weights are wrong). Takeoff trim settings are way off, TO Thrust settings are not working, whatever FLEX TEMP you set it will give you always the same N1 value. The MCDU is incomplete: TO and LDG Pages are incomplete (No flaps setting, no temperature compensation).Anti Ice logic is not working (remains on for all the flight), FMA on takeoff gives you the wrong mode (LNAV is engaging while rolling, it should remain to ROLL and then switch to TRACK and at 400ft LNAV kicks in).These problems goes beyond the possible configurations that the plane can have.
QuoteOh,no, The aerodynamic is as bad as the old one. Just did some quick testLRC FL300, very typicalFor E190, with 10200LB, the FMC gives me LRC for M.66, but AOM gives me M.72manual Speed to M.72 the aircraft gose FF:1640PPH and N1 on 75.7on AOM, for 50000kg weight, the FF should be 1056Kph(2330pph) N1 should be 83.5For E170, with 82000LB, FMC LRC is M.68,AOM M.67, so that's OKBut, with M.68, FF GIVES 1200PPH. while manual gives 1756PPH under same condition.and N1 as low as 77.2 rather than 83.2 on the AOM.So.... as "good" as the old one.... that makes my fuel plan from AOM's SFP chart useless, always overweight on landing....I had backed up my original version aerodynamic tweak, I'll see if it works with the new one then....
QuoteI couldn't get past the visuals of the vc modelling...some aspects seemed nice (like it appears they have used pbr which enhances the look) but there seems to be something about proportions and / or somehow it just felt like a slightly cartoonish version. I think it's the displays in terms of fonts sizing and somehow the proportion modelling for some parts of the vc seem off.
