  1. Past hour
  2. Thank you Fraser. Right now Im trying a shorter subsonic flight. about 540nm and will use the CPS fuel and will let you know what happens.

    Can we also please have an immersion where we could smell the fuel?

    QW787 -8 -9 FSL profiles

    This doesn't work...dialed from 100 percent to 0 on the brightness and no changes.

    This is really nice. It adds much luster to the cockpit at night..Thanks for sharing.
  7. I just happen to have the Cruise Control Manual sitting next to me. Planning a full flight is actually quite complicated from a fuel point of view, but if I use the fuel check/re-flight planning table, a 4:25 four engine subsonic flight would need a minimum of 48.3 tonnes if you start at a weight of around 126 tonnes and fly at optimum flight levels. HOWEVER, this is not counting takeoff fuel (around 1 tonne) and climb fuel (around 4.8 tonnes). This is also assuming a very minimal payload and zero wind. The ground distance is 2400nm. It is more likely to be (with payload) 56.3+4.8+1.0 = 62.1 tonnes. These all vary depending on payload weight and ISA temperature but as a minimum for that length of subsonic flight, you are looking at a minimum of 60 tonnes, so CPS is a little out there I would say. Might be good to ask @Ray Proudfoot about this as he is a fan of CPS and can maybe cross check. I would say that is a minimum and only if you fly at optimum flight levels including step climbs. By the way, the figures I have given only include the 6.5 tonne final reserve so more would be carried. Also, remember the actual fuel flight planning is more complex as fuel burn reduces as time goes on, but these figures are official.

    questions regarding p3DV5 performance

    you get llower than 20 FPS even with fslabs A32X on V4?
  9. thanks Fraser, Is the 2nd leg for the 2nd tour at the top of this page. highest it goes is Chicago so it would be sub. CPSX is giving 42 tons for a 4:25 flight (calculated as subsonic). That would give roughly 2.4 tons per engine per hour. I feel is quite low dont you think? total fuel needed for the flight its only 56.5 ton. I ve never calculated nor flown a fully subsonic flight before.
  10. If it goes directly over the US it's definitely subsonic. If it routes north over Canada as was done for Seattle and Vancouver then supersonic. I think this was on a tour that had subsonic legs so it probably is subsonic. Later tours tried to do all super if possible.
  11. Hello.. I see a flight plan from KJFK to KOAK. was it a supersonic flight? or subsonic one? Thank you Cheers Alfredo

    A330

    I would certainly purchase said long haul aircraft. Be it an A332, A338, A359..

    Concorde-X is not even mentioned in the last roadmap

    BBC1 Antique Roadshow from Bristol Aerospace Museum now. Fiona Bruce in AF interviewing Les Brodie. Plus Concorde items being examined.

    Might as well...we ain't gonna be flying FSL soon anyway.....so I'll light BBQ throw some goodies and off I go.....In the mean time set up V5 for long flight to EDDF...

    Its all about fixes. Here and there! Like everywhere! So, I go enjoy my 3rd beer now
  16. Alexander Luzajic

    Sharklet Hype

    Well....you guys keep asking to fix this, that and the other, so they listen and start fixing.....and then once they fix all wishes they will come with final fix.....free of charge....

    I live in Europe and usually when Fslabs releases a plane for the Europeans it is in the evening.
  18. Timm Rehberg

    Sharklet Hype

    Its not over yet. FSL never tried a european midnight release yet! But I doubt someone from FSL is still awake

    Waiting for that to be "fixed" since ages.

    Yeah lets upgrade stuff to 4k so we can have VRAM errors in V5 & stuttering galore in V4 because that's what we need.
  22. Ray Proudfoot

    Concorde-X is not even mentioned in the last roadmap

    In which case no one who has the FSL Concorde will be the slightest bit interested.
  23. Robert Sutherland

    Sharklet Hype

    Please, if ever you consider updating textures to 4K, do so while considering your broad spectrum of users and offer options with reduced resolution so it doesn’t eat up VRAM.

    Concorde-X is not even mentioned in the last roadmap

    Let's just wait and see, I share your frustration but sometimes "good things come to those who wait..." Maybe with some competition in the frame, Concorde will be given a boost - this is one of the main reasons the real thing was a commercial flop from the manufacturer point of view. Plus, there are only so many Airbus aircraft that can be modelled....

    Thermal stabilisation question on engine and brakes

    Here’s an FCTM extract concerning brake fans: ”Delaying brake fans selection limits the oxidation of any possible transient hot spots of the brake disk surface. The selection of the brake fans, before the aircraft reaches the gate, prevents to blow carbon brake dust on the ground personnel. The brake fans blow dust during the first seconds of operation only.” So no particular time limit, but delaying them until just before turning into the stand should be right. It is OK to operate them on stand and you kinda have to also for them to have the desired effect. It can take quite a long time for them to cool down, especially in hot OAT.

    I promise, If i ever get famous and rich (billionaire or something), i'll pay FSL to make an EIS1 A320 for us. Free of charge for A320-x owners. Something like 15 million usd

    Sharklet Hype

    I have no issue seeing why this will not happen, but how fun it would have been. I recently watch the ITVV A320 videos (one in the simulator and one Inter European to Greece from the UK and back) and the first thing that struck me was all the big and small differences between what we fly today and what was hot and new in a A320 in the early 90's. Heck TCAS wasn't really a thing in everyday use yet.
