 A LOT!  Three doesn't even represent 1% of the Saab users.

Ok. But this is disappointing indeed. Kind of strange that you are not eager to make really good aircraft even more perfect. Ok, it's up to you.<br /><br />Sent from my Galaxy Note via Tapatalk<br /><br />

Hi all! Got another question. Every single time I start up the engines, I can see the red AP sign blinking as if I turned the autopilot off. But I do not touch the AP on or off buttons during start up sequence. Is it alright?

Will anybody also advise how to set the hardware AP on/off button? As if I am dummie:)

Thanks in advance.

Will it break anything?… no.  Is it supposed to do that?… no.  Will this be fixed in the next update?… no.  As a workaround simply press the AP disco button on the yoke and it should canx the annunciation.

P. S. I am just curious, what will be fixed in the next update?

• Fixed bug where Glideslope was not being recognized when switching between NAV1 and NAV2.
• Added NAV2 radio test logic to glideslope display.
• Adjusted reverse/beta/feather/norm modes.
• Adjusted sound engine to handle negative gain.
• Adjusted fuel crossfeed logic.
• Logic for Xvalve and bleed valves re-written.
• Changed bleed air and power requirements for proper operation.
• DC selector dial reworked to be more user friendly.
• AP engage delay time reduced.
• Adjusted engine oil pressure warning parameters.
• Corrected logic for determining valid signals for nav radios.
• Adjusted logic for when the Altitude Advisory speed is displayed on the EADI.
• Corrected fuel pump logic on engine failure.
• Autocoarsen logic revised to be more accurate per AOM.
• OBS1, OBS2, Heading, and Altitude Selector manipulators changed to be more user friendly.
• Fixed nose gear tires showing through the gear doors when retracted.
 
… and maybe more

Ok, thanks. Frankly for thr first time I was kinda disappointed woth the aircraft but now I must admit that it flies perfectly and it's really pleasant for manual handling. Now I love this aircraft. <br /><br />Sent from my Galaxy Note via Tapatalk<br /><br />

Any chance minor things like default switch positions could be included? Eg. De-ice boot panel, indication light ON, air supply ON, AC GEN's ON, ADF units left on ADF etc.

Cheers

Could the radio control's be improved too? I have to admit, at the moment the Saab isn't really useable for VATSIM or PilotEdge.

This is something that we have planned, but it will not be in the next update.

+1 for the radio manipulators.

 

Ditto Please - the Saab is an amazing addon but for online flight I find it truly difficult especially with the slow dialing of the freqs (and odd location - not that it's wrong, obviously it's realistic, but it's difficult and I use TIR).  A radio stack would be super handy with this plane.

We do not have plans for this.

 

Thanks for your sharing of interest though!

Tuning Gizmo has improved FPS.

 

37 FPS with 14.01

 

44 FPS with current development version.

 

Hopefully be able to squeeze a bit more performance out of it yet.

Hi Ben,

 

I always felt that the saab is too heavy on frames compared to other complex planes (like JAR a320 neo).

In fact I have to reduce a couple of rendering settings to maintain 30 FPS when flying the saab.

So +20% FPS sound very good to me! Thanks for your efforts.

Do those competing products qualify as study simulations? Are they in active use as professional training aids? Probably not.

 

...but we do what we can. ;)

I guess doing an a320 neo at study sim level would be a much more complex task than doing a saab340.

But maybe you're right and it was a poor comparision right from the start...

No matter what, I'm glad you found a way to make the saab perform (even) better.
