CRJ700-family: New release 1.5.0

Postby danielHL » Sat Dec 19, 2015 12:16 am

Hi everyone,

D-JSB and I have been hard at work for some months, and we think we have something to give to testers: the beta of V1.5.0 is ready. Quite a few things are changed, especially the startup procedure and the autopilot modes are detailed. See the checklists to get the engines running.

Zip-file
https://github.com/d-jsb/CRJ700-family/archive/testing4release.zip
git (branch testing4release):
https://github.com/d-jsb/CRJ700-family.git

We would also like to invite you to a bug hunting and/or flight instruction get together. If you are interested, join us on Monday, 21st of December, 18h UTC (19h local time) in EDDH. Bring your own aircraft and beer!

If you have questions or comments up to then, please let us know here.

Cheers,
Daniel

I think I couldn't get auto-throttle (matching set IAS) to work as it did in the past. This was with FG3.7. Did the procedure for it change?

Hint: The CRJ has no autothrottle :)
Autothrottles are for kids (imagine that in the voice of a captain who has been flying CRJ's all his life) :)

And for all kids, beginners, lazy people and who else might care, we have a x-mas present:
AutoThrottle is available via the "cheat menu" again :D
But t(h)rust me, once you learned the CRJ, you will want fly it with out AT ;-)

Don't get me wrong, I love to fly with no autothrottle or autothrust, but a long haul flight in such a way must be a nightmare.

Resumee of the evening: a whole lotta fun, 5 new bugs with more coming, drunken flying along the Elbe River, a lot of autopilot mode explaining, finding reasons for omitting an autothrottle mode, the infamous barrel roll landing.

Thanks guys - you were all really helpful! I will take my laptop with me on christmas holidays and try to fix some of the bugs. See you next year.

Hello, thank you again for taking the time to answer my questions on mumble, However I just remembered another thing about the CRJ. Very time I use the ILS, I capture the G/S but it doesn't follow it down. it stays perfectly in the middle no mapper what altitude you are at.

DELETED didn't read the post above fully

Review and optimization of autopilot finally has finished. Some final tests are due but I expect to push an update tomorrow night so it hopefully will find its way to the official repo just before freeze/ next FG release.
