Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This will serve as a formal forum announcement that we have released the version 1.5 update for the Take Command! Saab 340A. All customers who have purchased the Saab 340A up till now have been sent an e-mail by X-Aviation with complete instructions on how to obtain your update. We have made this a very simple process! For those that purchase the Saab 340A from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.5 for you.

This update brings official compatibility for X-Plane 11. It is also applicable to X-Plane 10 for those still running that platform.

What if I didn't get the update e-mail?

I've completed two flights in it so far. It's great and I haven't found any issues whatsoever! Also, I don't have a very powerful machine, but it still runs so well!

Thank you Cameron,

Thank you Goran,

We were all so excited to have this update. It works fine with Xplane11. So cool.

And for free, event if the plane is already old.


Don't forget Jim (JGregory)

He gave it the systems.

I bought X-Plane 11 two months ago and just bought the SF340 today and went through the included pdfs for Quick Start, Intro & Settings, Flight Tutorial, and Systems.  I have a medium level computer that I use for work with an attached Thrustmaster HOTAS joystick. None of instructional pdfs make any mention of the Steering Tiller. The steering tiller is not modeled in FSX planes. When I tried to taxi after following the Quick Start procedures, the plane went straight forward. After multiple attempts, I was cursing this plane! To LES or X-Aviation staff: Please update and modify those instructional pdfs for XP-11 at the appropriate place in the documentation (Quick Start Page 10; Flight Tutorial Page 10; Systems Page 173/174) to include a statement to the effect, "To engage nosewheel steering using a joystick or other external simulator device, press the Steering Tiller down prior to beginning taxi." It will be quite useful if the statement was accompanied by a graphic showing what the steering tiller looks like. Thanks.

I have a problem with the display of radios:
In the cargo version they look good, but in the version passengers do not.

Turn on texture compression in X-Plane.
