Wilco Falcon 7x

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Thank God there is a Forum for this airplane.  I too just purchased the Falcon 7x for FSX version 1.0b.  I'm having a peculiar problem that may not have anything to do with the plane itself.

 

PROBLEM:  I start FSX and choose the Falcon 7x but the regular 2 dimensional left seat cockpit view does not work.  I can snap to the right, behind me, to the left but looking straight into the panel I find myself looking at the ground of the airport.  I've tried all sorts of things trying to remedy this including panning through all of the view sequences.  My other aircraft don't have this problem.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Denied, twice. I will wait for version 1.1 and if that is also a fail then I will put in a PayPal dispute.

The timeline to meet is 180 days from date of purchase. Just a heads-up ...

If you want a payware bizjet where everything actually works, including the autopilot, get my personal favorite, the Flysimware Learjet 35A.    If you do get it, I highly recommend also purchasing the Flight 1 Garmin GTN 750.

The problem is some of us are looking for a large cabin, long range business jet. In which the Falcon 7x remains the only current option. It would be nice if Aerosoft would release a Global 5000/6000 version of their CRJ project, but I am not holding my breath.

I am afraid I found this forum to late. I bought the piece of crap and am very disappointed with no response from Wilco waiting for V1.1.....

Dispute it with your credit card company. You bought a product that isn't working as advertised.

Wilco released V1.1 of the 7x, but I am still having some problems.  Is anyone else experiencing some shaking while passing through 280 KIAS on climb out?  The plane just shakes up and down as if it is in an over speed situation.  Frame rates are still bad, any ideas on how to improve them?

 

Thanks,

 

John

Frames are unchanged, i.e. quite bad. I notice I cannot control/dim the interior lights, only PDU and MDU. Only turn them off or on with the L key. This worked before, unless I remember wrongly. Anyone else noticing this?

Thank goodness for these forums - I had actually very strongly considered purchasing this product, as I find the Dassault Falcon 7X to be a very interesting bizjet.  But I think I will hold off until I hear that Wilco fixes the major issues with the plane.  Sorry to hear that so many of you are having problems with it.

Also ILS APP not working. No GS or LOC holding. 

VOR2 no DME and incorrect direction to beacon.

No taxi and landing lights.

 

Strange white lights in the tail?

 

Not holding altitude below 5000ft

 

Magnetic degrees out by about 30 degrees indicated.

Besides what this update did to this bird, or not... (I had some hope for the 1.1 update...) The fps!!! For Heaven sake Wilco! Do something about the fps!!! its below acceptable! 39 Eur. for one of the worst "slideshows" I have ever seen during my 20 years in this hobby! (And I can tell You there is nothing wrong with my rig. Its a brand new high thech state of the art gaming machine) the fps in this 7X is a joke!

FPS, is as I said, among the worst I have ever experienced! Around 12-15, on ground. Taxing, when I take to the sky (takeoff, climb out) it drops below what I think is unfyalble. We are  talking here around 5 to 8 FPS, which is in my opinion totaly unacceptable! FYI, I take of from default ESSA and still get that awful FPS and awful stuttering, not to speak about the ground beneth the plane wich is totaly blury and awful looking at. Crap is the word! I thought they had at least fixed the FPS in some way, but NO!!! Back to the drawing board again Wilco! otherwise this expensive useless toy goes straight to Marana (or similar) for complete storage!

I have seen two or three YouTube videos of this aircraft, and the framerates when on the ground (or at low altitude) looked absolutely abysmal. Is that the case?

Yes, completely unflyable.

Well, the aircraft has lots of issues but fps in the single digits? I get around 20 to 25 in most situations.

Its funny reading this thread, after so many years it seems like the same type issues happen over

and over again with Wilco, it used to drive me mad how it "almost" works, er except for the ILS or

except for the altitude control....  Clearly they need to get a new gauge programmer :)

 

And people try SO hard to be positive in some ways, they don't deserve it, they put products out

that never get fixed, they just move on to the next thing to rip people off with.  The only answer is

to steer clear of them.

What sim, what version of Windows. 

 

FSX:Steam on Windows 10 and it is a slide show. I think the P3D guys are having better luck.

Prepar3D 3.3.5, Windows 10. VC about 20-25 fps, outside view between 25 and my (locked) 30. In less demanding scenery though. I have the worst fps hit with all aircraft in very dense autogen scenarios. Clouds, shadows and everything else hardly make a difference. 

 

Apart from that, don't get me wrong, the many faults of the Wilco Falcon are a big disappointment but in my opinion the frames are not the biggest concern. The F1 Mustang for example can also eat a lot of frames in VC but otherwise is way more mature.

 

I feel sorry about the Falcon because it could be a marvelous aircraft. I never tried a Wilco product before so I can't say if it's a general developer's shortcoming.
