I bought the plane when it came out and love it. I never had any big problems with it, only minor things like that the doors aren't recognized by GSX. However, other users have reported serious problems with the autopilot. Aerosoft is working on this and I would expect that they will be able to fix this issue eventually.

It's 25% off, not down to 25%. My first thought when I saw the thread title was that it's actually quite a smart move on Aerosoft's part -- encourage people to invest at a huge discount in hopes it'll get fixed. But with only 25% off I have to wonder how many will be even remotely tempted. Maybe in seven more years when it works!

Sorry for that I was too quick in typing. Yeah 25% off. Can’t seem to be able to edit now.

Could one of the mods change the title please?

Hi Folks,

Hmm - too good to pass up - I have faith in Hans...

LOL - Mitch - no comment necessary (joking)...

:tongue:

I have found the latest version to be much improved over the initial release.  There are a couple of small issues in the NAV system ( appears to not like Navigraph as much as Aerosoft's NavData Pro), but appears Hans is working on that. That issue involves loading all the waypoints in a STAR, but I can manually enter them for now.

Otherwise it is a very nice aircraft.

There's the odd glitch, but no showstoppers. It's pretty good on the whole, worth having if you like regional jets.

I was waiting to see how this aircraft would get sorted out before buying however this sale today was  unexpected so I bought.  Just did a short flight and I am completely impressed. This is a really great P3d aircraft. Glad I bought.

A bit confused by the wording on the installer. Are you guys installing this into your main FS folder, or to a separate folder?

Installed and made a few short flights. I may have made a mistake. Got some performance issues on a machine that should be able to run pretty much anything well. :blush:

Guess I'll get onto the the CRJ forum and see if i can find out what's going on.

Hi Folks,

Hmm - looking at your specs - this doesn’t bode well for me - i2700K@4.7Ghz and a GTX970 - I can run the Q400 fairly well...

Regards,

Scott

Bummer, I have a conservative system too... I think I'll wait. If anyone figures out that their modest system can handle it well, I may jump in also.

I'm really on the fence.  I have a 6600k at 4.4 and a gtx 1060.  I can run PMDG planes pretty well on my system but haven't tested any other planes since those are all I have for V4.  I don't want to spend $35 just to find out performance is worse but I do want the plane.  Hmm.

In fairness to AS, I've been poking at it and my issue is something more complicated than a simple performance problem. Pure FPS is decent enough (perhaps a bit ranging between max and min than I'd like), but I'm getting excessive stuttering and micro-pauses, exacerbated by Track IR. Panning around is gawd-awful. Changing my P3D affinity mask helped, so there's something else running that's messing with me... RAAS dll maybe? (I installed the locked version with the CJR). I partly blame Windows 10 also.

It performs well on my low end machine 3770 and gtx 760. If you can run pmdg ok, you’ll be fine I think

Looks like a good deal! While I wont buy it until the bugs are gone I'm sure other have found the bargain quiet a catch. Thanks for sharing!

Well I bit.  Considering I paid $90 for the NGX if I use this even 1/3 of the time I do the NGX it'll be an ok buy for me.

Quick update for those I might have dissuaded, Not sure why this helped or what's behind it, but with a particular Affinity Mask, and frames set to unlimited, (neither have been 'normally' required), I am getting good FPS (just a touch below the NGX) and the micro-stutters are minimal. Very flyable now.

Got it installed and ran through the checklists a few times. I get better performance from this plane than the NGX. i5 7600k at 4.6, 16GB of RAM and an AMD 480 4GB.
