Might be because they are LEDs. Ninja fast.

RGB strobes when though

Airbus needs to partner up with Razer or Corsair :P

Hello guys, I appreciate all of the hype going on already and I am super excited to see all the anticipation reaching amazing levels! In fact, I wanted to share that, while we don't expect t

Hi all – As Lefteris commented on, one of my favourite areas of the updated models, besides the PBR, is the cabin windows. Each window has now been remodelled in detail - and we've also modelled

I've elected to stay away from this until now as it gives people an opportunity to joke around, vent their frustrations on a "perceived delay" of our release (even though I've explained the reasons be

What I have found interesting is that there *seem* to be different strobe lights between the winglet and sharklet models. Having A LOT of flight time as a PAX on Wizz Air, the sharklet strobes seem to be much faster.

As already said it could be to do with the LED but maybe the sharks use better software or wiring idk

Happy Tuesday folks,

 

In anticipation of the upcoming sharklet exntension for the A319/A32x series, I thought you might enjoy a video showing one of Delta Airlines A321 in action. The link takes you aboard a Delta A321 (N346DN) from KATL-KBOS. Video courtesy of Skylite Productions. Enjoy!! :D

 

Respectfully,

Darren Esannason

That's good enough for me, the A321 is a very good aircraft, it's the only one of the A320 series I fly now.

What do you think how long will be the development? 1/2 year or 1 year?

You cant really put a time on it cause development never stops.

Hopefully not as long as the A321:lol: who knows though. Anything can happen with testing

@Norman Blackburn I don't know if you're ready to share this kind of information.

But if you are, you said that sharklets would be the next big update, or at least that we won't see the DCDUs implemented to the A320 & A319 before the sharks. Two questions then:

  • When sharklets are released, will we see the DCDUs at the same time (on the whole A320/A319 fleet, sharks and non-sharks) ?
  • Will the new FMGC software will be implemented in the non-sharklets airframes ?

Thanks!

Just btw, I think I remember Lefteris stating something about the sharklets being a purchasable extension, so I guess maybe it won‘t be just an „update“ but more of a product of its own...

Correct this is what he had written in the v434 update post  "A few people are wondering what is to follow - we have already shared that we have been working on a Sharklets extension to our add-on family, this should be available for purchase within the coming months."

Yes, I refer to the term "update" because I would like to know what we can expect in terms of DCDU and FMGC on the non-sharks aircrafts, those that we already own and which will be updated at the same time sharklets are released.
