Okay, this was not quite what I expected when I bought CRJ-200... After my decision to give X-Plane10 a try a month ago, I was surprised how fine the v.10 looks, compared to older versions. So I thought about buing a SERIOUS plane for it. That was CRJ-200. Thought flicking through the manual and hop, up in the air. In the end I spent 1 1/2 hour ON THE GROUND while working through the tutorial just to get the plane to the runway holding position. And just when I tried to align with the runway, one of the engine died. No, I had no failures selected in X-Plane, it looked like I had somewhere pressed the wrong key or switch... I was so depressed that I switched off the computer and didn't touch CRJ-200 for a week. But yesterday I gave it another try ! I didn't remember much about the first "flight" so I had to grab the tutorial again. And this time I only used about 1 hour for the preparations. (My wife came by and asked: "Aren't you gonna fly ? Is something broken ? ) This time both engines worked and I really managed to takeoff ! But what was that ?? The plane behaved as stubborn as a mule, it bounced up and down, and from left to right. Even after I activated the autopilot, the plane couldn't hold course neither altitude. OH BOY, is it really THAT hard to fly this baby ??? After a while struggling I had an idea, went to the weather menu and BINGO ! I had still activated "Real weather from the internet" from a last flight. And on that day, big storms rushed through my region here in Germany, looks like they were in Spain too ! After I switched to global calm weather, I was relieved, everything worked now. And I began enjoying the flight. Okay, I must admit, I didn't manage to "catch" the flightplan at first so that I flew in the wrong direction but that is another story... What I want to know now, what were your experiences during the first flight with CRJ-200 ??
