Wilco Falcon 7x

Recommended Posts

VNAV doesn't really function properly, it basically holds 2500 fpm all the way up and adjusts throttle to maintain speed.  They seem to have the over speed warning tied to vertical speed instead of airspeed.  When I approach 5,000 fpm during climb it screams check speed with a continuous warning sound.  Engines 1 and 3 have reverse in the sim, but in the real world only engine 2 has reverse.  Still get a buffet when approaching 250 kias below 10,000 feet.  By far the worst add-on I have ever purchased.

Isn't there a hall of shame around here somewhere......?

I and the AVSIM Board got rid of the Hall of Shame some time ago. I did not prescribe to it as people make mistakes and it is just better to remove the "shameful" words or actions than publicly shame the person(s).

 

Best regards,

Is this plane the one called "Dassault" compliant? Reading your posts i think something (big) was lost during the developing process. Well, thanks for the info guys, this plane is OUT of my purchase list now.

1. Still the true North indication and mag indication are the same value as soon as airborne (Only showing the true north and we are using the mag direction to navigate)

2. Direction indication on VOR2 still incorrect and no DME2

3. No glidescope holding when doing a ILS Apch

4. FMC flight plan following incorrect and airac nav data some airports missing or incorrect.

Has anyone tried to integrate the Flight1 GTN750 into the cockpit like Bert did for Carenado's Hawker?  I gave it a shot, but it didn't work.

Version 1.4 out

 

Can't see any changes from V1.3. All the above are still errors.

Frame rate improved ?

Yes on my system set to target frames of 30 f/s  running 28,29 f/s (Updated to the latest NVIDIA drivers 30 August 2016)

Previous frames 12 -15 f/s

 

PS

Just used the ADF in flight direction to the ADF incorrect

All of these "fixes" and Wilco has yet to find a better method of copyright protection other then making you copy and paste each part of the three keys into the installer.  :Hmmmph:

I've better frames too, an improvement, but still very stuttery at low altitudes

 

I'll try updating the Geforce drivers

Ken, I always copy (CTRL-C) the serial key before starting the installer.  By doing so, the installer will automatically place the key inside the appropriate window.

Hi all,

 

How about an update on this jet. I believe v1.1 is the latest attempt by Wilco, so how are they doing? Getting there or still on life support and fading?

 

And what's a realistic price compared with what else is out there?

 

TIA

Is it just me support is reporting these things are working on their side?

Nico,

 

 I have found stuff they say they fixed in 1.0c that still is broken such as the reversal of the throttle levers and engines. Sim assigned throttle #2 still controls the #3 engine and sim assigned throttle #3 still controls the #2 engine. When this is reported they simply state, "all confirmed bugs will be fixed." I have talked to a few real Falcon pilots who confirm the center throttle controls the center engine. 

 

 Wilco either purposely chooses not to understand reports, bother clarifying the content of a report, or they have chosen not to fix these items. I'm having a very hard time contemplating how huge errors such as above can "work" on their test systems yet fail on customers machines. 

 

 I've been burned by bad products by WIlco in the past and got stupid when a beta tester told me how 'good' their Falcon 7x was and tried them again. I should have know better. 

 

 The funny thing is they name their company after radio telephony that means "will comply." Their company name should be "Negative," as you will get negative customer support, negative software and have a negative experience.

Same here, I sent them a list last week of about 15-20 items that were not working or working incorrectly.  The response I received was that they all were either working on their end or have been fixed.  These people have absolutely no clue when it comes to real world aviation and its sad because if you read the description of their aircraft you are lead to believe it was designed to replicate the real thing.  One of the responses I received from Tiffany was that they never had the intention of replicating the real aircraft and that the so called endorsement from Dassault wasn't an endorsement, but a license to use the Dassault name. False advertising maybe?  I am done dealing with them, I have learned my lesson and that is to never buy another product from Wilco again.

Hear hear

 

 

What I don't understand is that they can simulate the most complicated gauges but a simple VOR2 with DME they can't. (They say it is working correctly on their system but I see f all)

How buggy is this plane now? Can it fly sid/stars / ils without issues?

 

Are the framereates worst than PMDG/Aerosoft's releases?

See my above comments about unfixed bugs.

Can fly some sid/stars ok but ILS is a disaster with the True North and the Mag North at the same value the course of the ILS is about 30 degrees out and no descend on the GS with autopilot on APP.

I use the RNAV approach for the airport and runway with success.

 

The frame rates did improve a lot not worst than PMDG or Aerosoft's Airbuses. (On my computer)

Otherwise I must say the plane flies great. (One of my favorite planes at the moment with all the bugs and all)

(She flies exceptionally well manually.)

 

Also I find it hard to communicate with support to sort out the issues.
