Is the TFDI 717 available in P3D v4 yet?  The add on manger says "coming soon" but I've seen people on youtube running it in V4.  Can someone point me in the right direction to get it in V4?

Thanks

I'm part of the community opt in beta as well and I can say that I don't have any problems with this wonderful aircraft. I highly recommend it!

There are still a few issues with it, the biggest for me is prof descent doesn't follow speed constraints.  But they are making great progress fixing the bugs and the developers are very transparent.

Works great in v4. There is the odd small issue but nothing major. Well worth the money. an absolute joy to fly

On beta and it works very well. I agree about the prof descent issue but make no mistake about it this is a very nice plane. Sure would like more liveries though.

Good to hear about improvements. Don't have it yet, but a future purchase for sure.

I will throw in another vote for this bird. Its a lot of fun to scoot around in. Only issues I have are the lack of WX radar and terrain, but that will come later in the beta.

I'll also report that this is a great aircraft.  I love the TFDi 717 in P3Dv.4 too.

Was just about to pull the trigger on this bird until i read about an issue whereby the left MFD's blank out around 45 minutes into the flight. 

Has this been resolved?

I have never had this happen during any of my numerous flights with this beauty. I would recommend this plane to anyone and everyone.

No worries Tamsini.

Did you update to the latest fix because that's when the issue apparently started happening.

one thing worth noting is that both weather radar and terrain do not work yet in P3DV4, but they are working on it

I'm on the latest beta release and never had the screens blank out on me either. The problem seems to be selective, not universal.

Has never happened to me and I have 15 hours on the 717 since P3Dv4 was released

Indeed, that`s the biggest issue for me as well. Have to use the overly aggressive speedbrake far too much. 

Other than, a lot has been improved in the latest version.

Ok, thought the issue was. more widespread.

Time to give the bank account another hiding then.

I love the plane but I have one gripe. I hate the idea of not being able to save the flight in case of a crash, which seems to happen in increasing frequency. Nothing's more frustrating than have a CTD on descent and not being able to pick up from there after a restart. If they implemented that, I'd be flying the plane every time I fire up P3D like I do the PMDG NGX/777 and Aerosoft Airbus.

That's why it's parked local here at the virtual hangar :blink:

Yes there is, it works perfectly for me.  The 717 allows for complete panel state saves.

Interesting, I just flew it again two weeks ago. Saved the flight halfway between SLC and YVR which ended up crashing a little later. When I returned I had no flight plan and the panel state wasn't saved.
