Sorry for this, but I have to: now FSLabs managed to release their very complex Airbus before Aerosoft was able to release their not so complex Airbus... nothing more to say...

Well, we were discussing the release date last night. For those who were part of that conversation, apparently the answer was "very, very, extremely soon."

downsides of this release: unfortunately, the plane modelled is an Airbus.

positives: exquisite systems depth, very good flight model.

Buying it now.

Yes you could say that but AS code is soooooo old and soooo not worked with it in the last 2 Years that they have to redo all of it (this was the explanation).

Newertheless: THANK GOD one of the Buses got released :).

Does anyone know what currency conversation rate they use?

 

According to todays rate, $140 = £105.

 

How ever when you change from USD to GBP on their site it comes out at £115. Quite a difference

Don't use their conversion. Pay in USD and let your bank do the conversion. You will get a much better rate.

Do not change the currency!
With US dollars you will get the lowest price.

To be fair its took them 7 years to make the CRJ, and even then that was released in a pre alpha state

The best way to buy is to select us dollar on the esselerate purchase page and let your bank apply the exchange rate. Esselerate exchange rates tend to be at the expense of the buyer.

Just a question of interest. At the time of buying the FSX-released version, there was an option to also buy the P3D version, which I did. So, using that P3Dv3 installer, can I get the v4 upgrade without having to fork out $140/£115 on top?

Is there good documentations and tutorials with this bird?

Ive got an urge to buy this plane but I'm such a Boeing fan especially the 737. I haven't heard one bad thing said about this product though.

Yes, you must use the "P3D v3 to v4" upgrade option when you click Purchase Now on the A320X page. This will upgrade you and give you access to the v4 installer.

I can only recommend this youtube channel:   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe9fggL9PwEqSyMDrlLubVw/videos

there are tons of tutorials on how to operate the plane. He is a RW A320 pilot and was also on the beta team for FSL

Anyone having problems with Chaseplane after loading the FSL? It closes automatically with an error message.

No - quite the opposite. CP automatically found my A320-X views from the v3 version, which I uninstalled months ago. One of the advantages of storing stuff in the cloud!

It’s definitely a different approach than a Boeing, you’ll need to learn some new things and unlearn some old things to make the transition.  Having said that, I’ve flown both extensively in flight sim and do find the airbus the easier one to fly once you get used to it’s systems and methods.

OK, I spent AU$195 on this - not a small investment, but I've heard some good things.

Initial impressions:

- Poor frame rates. On settings where I'd get 70+ FPS on a PMDG plane and 300+ with a default, I get around 45 on the Airbus. I was expecting on par with PMDG, not worse. 

- It crashes every time I switch to VR mode. No other plane has done this.

- cockpit looks OK, but I'm not blown away by it by any means. It's fine. 

- systems when booting up from C&D are pretty cool.

As I only fly in VR, I'm a bit concerned about the sluggish performance and instability.

Initial impressions only, I have not flown the FSL bus before so there may be some settings that I don't about that I need to change.

Um...now I have purchased it, I've found some other downsides in addition to the fact that it is a 'bus. :bengong:
