Positive Landing Rate's

Recommended Posts

Good evening gents!

First, I would personally like to thank Majestic for delivering such a pristine, and amazing aircraft. I enjoy flying it every second! With that being said, I'm sure most are aware that most ACARs systems get a positive landing rate from the Q400 due to the FDE operating outside of FSX. I know my VA actually has banned use of the aircraft until the problem is fixed since it messes up the site statistics. Flying with my VA was one of the main reasons I bought the aircraft so I was just curious if Majestic was looking into a fix or has one in progress etc.



Best Regards,

 

Darren.

I have found that the VA Acars I am using causes the aircraft to slowdown to almost  a stand still when the ACARS reads data. I assume this is a result of FSUIPC trying to access the aircraft data. Soon as its done with a read cycle it continues on normal. Specially prevelant on takeoff and approach which is reading data more often.  Ive tested this numerous times. I suppose it is the same scenario as stopping when you have FSUIPC auto save enabled

It should be up to your VA to deal with this,If Majestic releases an SDK of course.

 No problem for mine with any phase of flight, just when I land I always get a ridiculous landing right like positive 2000

.........I mean, a VA "banning" this amazing aircraft...? ..... their loss I'd say; plenty people will be flying this Q400 and looking for VAs that they can fly it with.... so yes, they're loss.

 

What's wrong with manual PIREPs for planes that don't work with ACARS systems?

 

We can't very well keep all add-ons standardized and not "raise the bar" purely because VAs need to use the default variables.

 

Just my 2 pennies.

"Now writing Vertical Speed to the FSX for compatibility with other 3rd party addons" might be fixed within the new service pack, going to go test it out :)

Come to find out. It is the way the VA is programing their ACARS.
