    CLB / CRZ Speed Constraint

    thanks alot for the explanation

    CLB / CRZ Speed Constraint

    After some more searching i think, this is intended in the 733. I would assume the ALT INTV in the NGX does exactly that and in the 733 i would have had to reset the alt in the FMC. If you think about it more it kinda makes sense because if the plane needs to climb further it would need to pitch up significantly to reduce the speed to the CLB constraint and then accelerate again. in that regard it does make sense.

    CLB / CRZ Speed Constraint

    ahh thank you, so i guess my confusion was caused by a wrong assumption but just to understand what you wrote in your example. if you level off at 3000, would the plane accelarte to cruising speed or use the constraint set in CLB page ? I guess that was my question in my case because i was on the assumption that when you level off the plane accelerates to cruising speed (.75) and not use the 280/.72 CLB constraint it had set.
  4. I just noticed something and was wondering if this is intended behaviour of the plane. I was doing a normal flight from Baltimore to Austin planned FL 360. Everything went normal nothing unusal. During the climb i made an error however and set the cruising alt in mcp at 35400. This went unnoticed to me. So i am cruising along and then i noticed that i am flying a little bit slow (.72) i look on the display and CRZ is displayed. So i go into the CRZ page and see that the crz speed should be .75, i change the value the fmc accepts it but nothing happens. Now i am really wondering and try to figure out what is wrong, i change the CI and the plane accelerates albeit not to the set speed. So now i am really looking what is wrong, i then click on the CLB page and see the speed constraint active. But when i look at the display above the engines it say CRZ. So i quickly realize that my ALT is not correctly, i change it the plane climbs to 36k and everything works perfect. Now i know this was my error, but i found it confusing that the plane is adhering to the CLB page, allthough it displays the CRZ mode. Is this intentional ?

    Moving x-plane to new HDD

    no, i have a 500gb ssd where currently everything is on. Now i am buying a 10TB HDD for ortho. Of course i can keep x-plane on the SSD, but the speed benefit you get in x-plane from a SSD is mainly from loading the orthos, scenery and mesh (that what takes 90% of the loading time). If i move it to a HDD then the speed benefit will be gone. SO for maybe 30 seconds loading time (instead of 4 minutes) that i would save when i use the dual solutions (SSD +HDD) it is not worth it to use the space. (Especially if you dont have alot in the first place. When the sim is running you will mainly acess the HDD only anyways to load the new tiles in so there is no direct benefit from the SDD. Well any benefit that would be is throttled down by the HDD. I hope it is a little bit more clear

    Moving x-plane to new HDD

    thought about it aswell, but since it is a ssd, i would loose all benefit of the ssd, since the bottleneck is ortho loading. Rather install other stuff on the SSD then

    Moving x-plane to new HDD

    I finally ordered a 10TB hdd for my ortho fix, and now will move my complete x-plane installation on that disk Now if i move the x-aviation planes with the folder, i know that the DRM will kick off. Since i will add a HDD into my PC anyway, i assume that i need to reactivate all planes regardless. What is the best way to do it ? Uninstall all planes before, then reinstall afterwards ? Or can i simply let it reactivate ?

    Navigraph the only option?

    you can also just buy one update every half year or so. that usually works also quite good if you are hardpressed for money
  9. i know xp11 is not supported, but i thought i might aswell post about it. sadly i didnt take a screenshot because it was right before approach, but i will try to describe what happend. Tomorrow i will be able to try to reproduce it but maybe someone else can try it in the meantime. here is the flight i did: ROUTE STATUS: active Using version: 1.1 DEPA: KSNA ARRA: KSFO CRUISE: 36000 PERF: Data is complete SID: HHERO1 SIDT: IKAYE START: None STAR: SERFR2.28R APPT: None APP: ILS28R DEP Rwy: 20R ARR Rwy: 28R During approach everything was working well, appart from the drag issue (but that is well known in xp11 ). The approach was programmed at flaps 30 /133kts. SInce there was gusting winds of 35kts, i saw the option wind correction in the app menue I tried to change the settings from 5kts to 10kts, which worked, but the calculated speeds didnt update. i thought maybe i need to press exec and thats when i got the soft crash. sadly it was in the middle of the approach so i couldnt take a screenshoot as the plane started to pitch down vigerously and needed my attention. in the gizmolog i found the following lines that seemed to show what happend: debug: 5412.316: TK: FMS speed is: 294.49582361262 debug: 5479.729: TK: EXEC pressed error: 5479.744: Callback_Dref_Hooked_setDataf: cdu1_exec_OnWrite: [string "ixeg.733.draw_route.lua.ra1"]:4174: attempt to index a nil value it happend right after i pressed exec, did someone else experience this aswell ?

    Les Saab 340 v1.3 in XPlane 11

    So its a stealth Saab340B ?

    Questions for Jan please

    since Ben mentioned that you will be able to deactivate licenses in future gizmo updates, you need the new version of Gizmo even in XP10 since it will decrease the workload quite abit and make your life easier.

    Official IXEG forum now open!

    well then you are lucky. I still think getting two flight attendants would be cheaper in the long run than the maintenance cost of my gf

    X-Aviation Saab: ever on sale?

    Well you can wait for Black Friday, if it is not on sale you can still buy at full price or wait for christmas and hope for chances there But it gets hard to resist getting the plane

    Payment options

    I think as a german, maestro should be enough as it is basically the "ec-karte" in germany. Allthough paypal does offer "lastschriftverfahren" and other wire methods. I guess the reason he asks is because it is rather hard to aquire a credit card in germany if you are under 18 and in general they are not really that popular as in other countries of the world.
