Friendly Panels Crj700 Fsx Review

Recommended Posts

Hi,Not a bad review overall but there were some inaccuracies - Jeff stated that the 737 has seperate autopilot controls for the captian and first officer". This is incorrect - the 737 has a common MCP (mode control panel) for the Captian and FO to use, centrally located, just like that in the CRJ. The only controls that both Captain and FO have, are the EFIS selection controls and the Course knob. (Neither of which are autopilot controls).Also, Jeff's review did not look very deeply into the (lack of) realism aspects of the Friednly Panels CRJ700 product: The CRJ does not have VNAV, so why would this be added to the FMC ?? ..... also, a moving map display on the FMC ?? .... this should have been built into the navigation display screen, to bring even a semblance of realism.Finally, I believe the FMC produces incorrect flight data values - Jeff did not question that the CRJ does not rotate at 180kts at any weight ! This value is far too high. At MTOW, a CRJ700 will not rotate at a speed any higher than around 145kts.Regards,
