    The EFCS has received a significant update encompassing months of work and testing - none of the autopilot or flap ballooning issues will be a concern going forward. You guys will really enjoy the next update. We're finalising the release candidate today and anticipate a release within the next couple of days.

    May I ask everybody to be nice with each other - as well as be tolerant of the written language as it often does not convey the real meaning. This is more true when English is not people‘s first language. In regards to announcing things at the show before here on the forum, that is very normal. Look for example at E3 or Apple talks for example. Finally, the coming update. We want it to be with our valued customers as soon as is possible.

    We go through these complaints every time. Whether users like it or not, why not just accept that it is the way it is and get over it? You know it will be updated, this is just FSL's way of doing things. If your lives get so disturbed over this issue then you have problems.

    I put this up in the other topic on packs but it deserves its own post. So firstly yes a pack off take off is NON STANDARD from an Airbus viewpoint. Where did this come from? Well it started a long time ago in a galaxy far far away..Europe funnily the home of the manufacturer. The problem is AIRLINES particularly European airlines. From somewhere the non standard procedure of turning packs off for take off started by a some low cost carrier many years ago has spread into many carriers using this non standard procedure. Non standard yes as the aircraft is designed to take off with the packs operating. As a Airbus philosophy the status box should not be showing on departure. Why? Because status is designed to bring the crews attention that the aircraft is in a NON STANDarD STATE. Likewise when you turn off the packs you will need to clear one or two Ecams for the packs being off. IE the aircraft WANTS THE PACKS ON. So we have hundreds of crews taking off everyday with the aircraft showing a status which then becomes an "expected" thing which can and is highly dangerous. Why you say easy because crews will not see the status message that may affect the departure capability of the aircraft because they are simply expecting a status message because they are departing in a non standard config from the aircrafts view. And again after take off at 1500' when you get the pack off ecam it is becoming expected behaviour and crews may even ignore the ecam which could be due prioritization by the FWC hiding another significant fault. When departing in a properly configured aircraft the should be nothing in status ie the status indicator is not visible and the overhead panel should be black ie NO LIGHTS ON. That is the crux behind the entire design philosophy of the aircraft. Likewise the cost saving of departing with packs off is offset by FAR higher pack maintenance costs. This is from both maintenance, failures and replacements caused by the valves opening and closing when they where never meant to be. In short somehow "pack off take offs" have become the norm. Firstly they are not the norm for any operator operating pure Airbus. Second its setting crews up to take off in a non standard config and missing something the flight deck warning philosophy was designed to present. Lastly if you do have an engine problem after take off good luck remembering to turn them back on. Our company has operated over 100 A320 and 321 found a significant cost and more importantly a high risk of crews missing, misunderstanding or simply ignoring Ecams as nuisances when they where expected. No Ecam should ever be expected unless dispatching with an MEL as it flies in the face of all the amazingly good ergonomics of the Airbus philosophy. So if you want to fly an Airbus the right way, the way Airbus WANT IT FLOWN leave the packs ON!!!!

    There's life beyond the FSL Airbus. It might be one of the best addons ever made (if not the best), but politics sometimes interfere negatively and people get bored... I can say for sure that mine has been grounded more time than flying because of this. Shame, but oh well, the other model also works.

    Its so simple James. Just don't look at any post by any of the FSL team and your chances of seeing that should diminish.

    Just passing as a casual observer, there were three machines available to fly on. Installed were the A320-X and the A319-X. Oh, and the A321-X

    Aside from a google search, maybe this helps: A319: https://www.airbus.com/content/dam/corporate-topics/publications/backgrounders/techdata/aircraft_characteristics/Airbus-Commercial-Aircraft-AC-A319.pdf A320: https://www.airbus.com/content/dam/corporate-topics/publications/backgrounders/techdata/aircraft_characteristics/Airbus-Commercial-Aircraft-AC-A320.pdf

    Now that UGCX is released, is FSLabs thinking about an integration (removing chocks, GPU and ACU when requesting push) ? Or at least make the GPU, ACU and chocks bindable for us so we don't have to go through the menus

    ( delete if not happy) Hello all, as you may know that fslabs is well....popular in the flight sim community however we still don't have a discord server..so i created one. it includes your typical channels for the 320 fleet & aswell as concorde, support can be there too however anything technical should be posted here so a dev can assist you unless they're in the channel. i've also included some voice channels, a photo channel for those showing off there lovely fslabs aircraft. i'd like to stress that it is not a takeover from this page, anything like liveries etc must be downloaded from this page. if you guys have any ideas or new channel ideas, feel free to drop in and ask. https://discord.gg/u46Cg9 see you there

    Hi guys Not a support question per se but just want to clarify something, is the IRS fast align simulated? I've just completed EGLL-LXGB in the A320 and attempted the procedure of IR1/2/3 to OFF then NAV again within 5 seconds and it triggered a full alignment. Thanks in advance!

    Only a slight hit. I do use a dedicated display profile for the bus as it does suffer with FPS in general. Less noticeable hit with other complex add-ons. When I’m VFR flying, I have everything maxed out, including Orbx True Earth areas. That extra peripheral visual makes flying look a lot better.

    I don't know about any "goodies" or surprises, but beside the HF2 compatibility it will (hopefully) contain numerous bugfixes and improvements of the FWB system. But I'm sure they will - as usual - provide a complete changelog with the update.

    Ok, but if you "encourage" to use HF2, then people can't use the Airbus...

    I don't think paying for more than 130€ for a product then we don't have right to ask for some informations about the current process, FSLabs is a great team, what is lacking is just frequent info about the product.

    Perhaps ego was in fact the wrong word. Entitlement, is actually the term that was in my mind; that you would think you are owed something just because you made a purchase once (maybe twice if you have been a long time user since the FSX days) and you feel that that puts you in front of the queue of prospective buyers at a trade convention that these devs chose to attend. Ego worked better for the joke, which is what I thought you were making with your original comment... My apologies for not realizing you were serious. Edit: because I realize that may have been crass - Despite that, it's not my intention to stir the pot or pick a fight with someone I don't know for any reason. I understand the frustration of what feels like a lack of info. We can blame all of that on our passion of this hobby and love of these aircraft and the amazing detail that has gone into their modeling. In lieu of staring at this forum and hitting refresh all day, I vote we go and sim. I'm flying the Greek islands, since they are a fav area in P3D. Where will you go next?

    It is incompatible with the latest p3 d v4.5 version called hotfix2. Fslabs have an update but that is currently in beta which should be out soon.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTA: Hay una versión en español de este tutorial en este enlace: http://simulaciondevuelo.com/tutorial-en-espanol-concorde-x-de-flightsim-labs/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I feel really excited to share with you that I have been working on a Concorde X video tutorial during the last days after v1.3 public release. The result is a tutorial that runs for a total of 4 hours and 41 minutes. It follows very closely the PDF tutorial provided by FSLabs, so there aren't really many new things under the sun. However, I hope that "watching" the tutorial in a video format can help new users to complete successfully their first flights. If you have some time, I would appreciate you would answer a couple of questions about the tutorial (click here) even if you have only seen a couple of minutes. It is completely optional, but I just feel curious about a couple of things. Thanks for your time. Bests, --------------------- DISCLAIMER --------------------- 1. This tutorial IS NOT, by any means, an official FSLabs documentation. 2. I am just a passionate user trying to help other users in their first steps with Concorde. HOWEVER (and believe me; this is a BIG however) I am VERY FAR from being an "expert" either in the real Concorde or in the Concorde X product by FSLabs. 3. Even doing my best to provide an information as accurate and valuable as possible, I have the CERTAINTY that the tutorial will be filled with inaccurate information, both about the real Concorde and the Concorde X model. 4. Although "my method", detailed in this tutorial, is far from accurate or perfect, it works fine for me and helps me to enjoy flying Concorde X all around the world. So, once again, my only intention is to share with others something that makes me more than happy. 5. Experienced users won't be able to learn a thing from this tutorial, but will spot plenty of errors. Anyone is more than welcome to share corrections or suggestions in this thread. 6. Changing the videos once they are on Youtube is highly complicated; but I will add "notes" to the problematic sections to warn viewers of the discrepancies between what I say or do and what I should have said or done. Depending on the amount or "seriousness" of my mistakes, I could even consider creating an extra video, a sort of "addendum", mentioning all those errors and their correction. 7. English is not my mother tongue so, at times, I was "overloaded" during the recording of the video trying, at the same time, to follow the procedures, control the aircraft, think what I wanted to say and find out the best way to say it in English.

    Really, Emi? Let's not get into those sorts of arguments, shall we? This is not language that should be coming from a support person of a competitor, with all the private history that has gone through that I'd prefer not to air here. Thanks for the understanding.
