Shut down anti-virus and run ccleaner after uninstalling before re installing anti-virus picking up this new exe still works but better to do what I said

Just a note, you have uninstall the original version before installing version 1.1 for the changes to happen.  I was a little disappointed at first, but after uninstalling and re-installing things seem much better.

I honestly can't tell a difference, FLC still doesn't work, the plane still feels extremely underpowered (it barely climbs through 25,000ft at a very light weight), and the fuel flow gauges on the MFD still only read 411 lbs/hr/eng.

The MFD FF readout WAS about 4500 lbs/hr per engine. Perhaps they have now gone overboard in the opposite direction? Won't have a chance to compare the SP to Version 1.0 until tomorrow...

Jim,

 

Disregard my comments, I've edited my post.  Apparently you have to uninstall version 1.0 before installing version 1.1.  That took care of the problem for me. 

 

Sorry for the confusion.

 

Regards,

 

John

Uninstall it like I said above - its way better but I am no expert on this bird - the only thing I am not sue about is my physical throttle position in regards to onboard switches, cant seem to figure out how to get it to adhere to speeds - I must be doing something wrong post a separate post on this

I just tried to fly an an ILS approach and I could not get it to follow the glide slope effectively at all. Will try some more tinkering to see if I wasnt setting the AP correctly.  Lord knows there is plenty of documentation now that they added that pdf. (Sarcasm on that note)

Believe it or not, worse than before.  Climb out is still horrible (130) max at just under 2000 ft/min.  Can't fly an ILS (went to wrong runway), keeps calling out "2500, 2500" regardless of the altitude, and the approach button still does not work.  I hate to complain but this is getting a little annoying, especially when we were all awaiting some fixes.  Oh well, I have many other fine aircraft that do work.

Interesting. I definitely had issues in Version 1.0 with poor climb performance and inaccurate vertical modes on the autopilot, but one thing that DID work well was the ILS. I flew two approaches to two different runways, using basic autopilot modes (heading select and altitude hold) while flying the intercept. The aircraft acquired and tracked the localizer and glideslope just fine on both occasions in approach mode.

 

I will try the new version tomorrow to compare.

This is no better than before.  Could someone please lay out in sequence how you set up the FMS flight plan, and what exactly you push on the AP (NAV or HDG) to follow that path.  This thing goes wherever it wants, not the intended course.

FLC holds speed better than before... but on my first flight,  it did not level off at target altitude.

 

Can anyone make this work?

It did not capture for me as well...

 

Plus I had loads of other a/p issues....

 

YD still does not display in MFD when selected.

 

Did not capture the GPS approach - Got no GS.

 

Among many other things...

 

And above all Carenado got snippy with me when I was going back and forth with bug issues in the support emails. I am fit to be tied....

For the life of me I cant get it to adhere to altitude (especially desending) - dont know why

Hey Bert, have you tried not using the ALT button, and simply setting the AP on, setting your lateral mode, and then pressing FLC.     Carenado get really confused with how these autopilots work;  it's a possibility that the 'level off' is already set when the AP is engaged and FLC is pressed ....... and pressing ALT may then perhaps be deactivating the level off.

 

Just a theoretical possibility to try out! :smile:

 

Knowing how the default VS function within FSX/P3D works (in connection to ALT mode), I'd also perhaps try this  ;-

 

On the ground;  Set FD on, set HDG mode, set ALT button, rotate the VS knob to set a positive vertical speed (let's say 2200 FPM), then taking off, engaging the AP and then pressing FLC.

 

Also, with Carenado aircraft, you should never press the VS button - it always activates vertical speed with no levelling off.....  VS control comes by default in Carenado autopilots, when ALT mode is on, and FLC is not engaged.

 

Just thinking aloud really - but some of these problems sound quite similar to the initial PC-12 and S550 AP problems that you and I were looking at a few months back.

The things that I like about the Hawker, I still like. I think that with sp1 I lost a few frames.

 

I'm trying to use traditional methods of navigation without any docs on how with these avionics.

 

Simply put, if I want to fly from KTPA-KMIA, I should be able to enter this in the CDU, choose FMS in the PFD, and see a bearing to and distance to the airport. When airborn if the bearing changes, I should be able make corrections and follow the bearing to KMIA. I'm flying manually. I have not even tried using the auto pilot.

 

Has anyone successfully done this?

 

Jose

Hey Guys,

 

After updating to SP1 I am having an issue with my mouse scroll wheel not working within the autopilot panel, strangely it does work with other rotating knobs (the MFD range display and panel lighting display) I've made a short video in hopes it explains the issue better than I can explain it. 

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

Max

I'm sticking with the original I think. If the ap still doesn't work right, there's no point.
