Hi,Well, I would like to hear from anyone who has this add-on, has the V1.3 patch made it a better add-on, is it worth purchasing it now, or not?.ThanksDan.

Flight dynamics are that of a fighter jet. Even fully loaded, plane climbs at 6000ft per min up through 20,000ft in profile mode and in level change mode. I am not a real pilot but I know enough that an A310 should not do that fully loaded. PFD and ND in VC mode are not lit up and cannot be read a night. No click spots for any toggle switches or buttons in VC mode. Unbelievable that the above were not fixed. Even the defualt MS planes have clickable VC's. Take it for what it is worth.

>> Even fully loaded, plane climbs at 6000ft per min up through 20,000ft in profile mode and in level change mode. That seems to be a pilot error I also made once. Sounds you still have takeoff power in your TRP. You need to set climb power in the Thrust rating panel.I have fun with the SSW A310. The Autopilot modes work well so far, I have normal behaviour in LVL CH, also there's no speed overshoot and they have programmed an Autothrust system that reacts much faster now. Very good Autoland, also with max certified crosswind.The Profile mode seems to have a little problem with descends, but needs more testing than just one day.The custom Autopilot comes with a little price to pay though, the flight model is a bit too much on a agile side for my taste. And the AP modes are not that polished yet as in e.g. PMDGs 737 NG. The system simulation is nothing but impressive, it's very complete incl. IRS. You even have to wait until the IRS alignment is done to get your PFD and ND active. A lot of system do have influence and are not just switch dummies. Also the FMC is very complete. You can use almost the entire real life normal procedures manual.A problem is the old Navdata and SSW still hasn't given a clear statement what we get in future.All in all it's very good now, interesting to learn what Airbus has done a generation before the A320/330/340 series.Mike

I have had awful problems with installation. 1.2 worked okay after the registry tweaking. Installed 1.3 after registry clean. .dll message at start up of FS - do I want to load this module? Yes and FS starts. Load A310 but says my key is invalid. Uninstall and re -install. Install FS9 .dll and panel config files (are we supposed to Mike?) Restart and reload panel. Key invalid. Accept three error messages and panel loads anyway. Unable to display MCDU. Change to full screen mode on dual monitors. Second monitor locks up. Close FS9 and it hangs. Give up and go to bed.I have had no response to the forum sign up. Await PSS patch, PICA320 patch etc. etc.Back to Boeing perhaps.

- Howard, in this hobby, does it not seem like we are all waiting for this patch or that upgrade?-Mike, in Profile mode, the TRP will indicate "auto" meaning the computer is supposed to handle it for you. You don't hit the CL, TO, etc buttons on it in this mode.

DescendDescend. I JUST had that exact same problem. When it says you have an invalid code just click the button to obtain a new code to send to SSW support. They send you a new code and everything works for me after that.

>-Mike, in Profile mode, the TRP will indicate "auto" meaning>the computer is supposed to handle it for you. You don't hit>the CL, TO, etc buttons on it in this mode. Pair of advices.That your A310 did not fly as F-16. :)Establish before takeoff on TRP mode FLX TO.Establish temperature 53-55 (this temperature depends on different factors, on the average it of 53-55 degrees) in FLX TO TEMP

That would be crappy engines. Actually most engines are rated for full power for 5 mins. Some more
