    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    Yeah, in most all SAAB 340 operations, the aircraft is rarely at a gate where it needs to be pushed back. When they flew regularly as commuter aircraft in the United States, most large airports had one or more terminals that were set up for boarding from ground level. In other words, the aircraft was parked sideways usually, and you, as a passenger, would just walk out a door on to the ramp, walk to the aircraft, and board. Take note of the 5m20s mark in the vido.....LOL. We need this modeled in V2. Also, take note of the white gloves in the cockpit, for increased visibility to the ground crew.
  2. @tkyler OK, here's hoping for the engine update as a bridge to v2. I understand you're being pulled in two directions (development wise...) between IXEG and MUv2. Also, I do think you are correct. Most v1.xx owners of the MU will most likely become v2.xx owners when it's released. Thanks for taking the time to post, it's appreciated. Tim

No winglets or satcoms painted since this is a retro livery, and such folly did not exist back then.

  4. @tkyler There was talk in this thread about one more update to correct the engine behavior in response to Laminar tweaking the turboprop functionality in X-Plane. Is this still in the works? Tim

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    I think I'm going to start doing this as well. I've had a couple instances under XP v11.34 where I've gotten the white Gizmo popup, and then sometime after, both engines quit. Last time was during a VATSIM event......LOL.......so I just disconnected. Small price to pay for a fun aircraft though. I know V2 is a looooong way away, so hopefully this last update will hold us over. It sounds very promising.
  6. I've had this happen a couple times. Flying along in cruise, everything nominal systemwise. Engines rollback and the fire is out on both sides. Happened again last night during the ZOB FNO. Sometimes a simple engine restart (engage starter) will get the engines going again, sometimes not. Anyone else have this happen? I should note that early in the flight during climbout, I had the Gizmo text box pop open. I closed it, and everything continued to operate normally, until I started my descent into my destination. That's when the engines shut down. I ended the flight at that point, because I didn't want to be disruptive to the FNO. Tim GizmoLog.txt Log.txt FlyWithLua_Debug.txt

    Limited bank angle

    Well, there is a work around for the bank angle issue. The fix is a pain in the ass, especially when you're flying online, while operating this aircraft designed to be flown by two pilots. Your yoke/joystick can override the roll function of the autopilot, without the AP disconnecting. So, if you're being vectored to a localizer intercept, you can "help" the autopilot by increasing the roll with your yoke to a 30ish degree bank angle. The downside to this work around is that you're already likely doing 3 other things when you need to "help" the autopilot make a turn. When the update gets released is out of my control, so there's no use complaining about it. But, I can see how people are upset about the AP issue. Prior to the 1.5.1 update, the autopilot bank angle worked. After the 1.5.1 update, the autopilot bank angle doesn't work. I think a lot of people expected a mea culpa attitude, followed by an autopilot fix within a few days after breaking the bank angle function. In any event, the autopilot is usable with some extra effort. Hopefully, soon means soon. Tim

    Update

    Well, I'm just glad the IXEG is still being developed. I don't fly it much because the FMC scares me. Too many times, it hiccups with a mid flight route, or approach change. I can't take the stress of sweating out the EXEC key. For now, other tubes satisfy my airliner simming. I still have confidence that advances will be made, and pushed out to customers. Tim

    Take Command! Saab 340A v1.5.1 Update Released!

    I don't believe the second modifier is accurate. Some where in the vast universe, there will still be a life form, that thrives in temperatures near absolute zero, still waiting for the 1.5.2 patch. Alternate theory: "heat death of the universe" means we will get the update when hell freezes over. Tim

    Anticipation is half the fun. Just think how sweet it's going to feel when the 1.5.2 update drops in..................................... August. Tim

    Ooooooh. That is a nice livery. Tim

    Compatibility with XP 11.3x

    I'm liking the sound of 1.5.2 for sure. The 340 has been in the hangar awaiting this update, and I'm stoked to get it out and fly it again. Tim

    Problems with de ice

    Yeah, icing in XPlane is a little messed up right now. I personally have a hot key set up to turn on all anti-icing under the general Xplane commands. This stops the crazy high ice accretion rates. Tim
