And I also spotted the same bug/inaccuracy that is currently present in the -400, namely the wrong accu-break pressure reading (way too low). The parking brake still works but the reading doesn't make any sense.

Why? I don't get it. Not a 747 driver here, but on the 737 you can perfectly have the parking brake set and the indication anywhere between zero and the green band, as long as your system B is off and the accu is more or less depleted, e.g. if you hit the brake a few times. Don't know a thing about the 747 but I would assume it could be a similar system design so intuitively I would not know why that px should be too low. In fact it could be a lot lower, i.e. zero.

Gents,

Pictures (and videos) of beta projects will likely have oddities in them. This combo of versions (Chris' 744 and 748) still had the issue when he recorded. We've released several since then. Looking back at the GFO presentation, it was fixed in that, which was a couple versions back by now.

And this is the reason I say the disclaimer at the beginning of the video 🙂

The QW787 [...] EFBs already work relatively well,

Yeah... if you like to do all te work yourself to include airports to work with basic features of this airplane... I‘m really glad that PMDG would never dare to give it to us like this.

Honestly...I'm lazy. I recognize that a lot of other people share that trait, so a lot of my software work is an attempt to sidestep major hurdles that make things difficult.

All the same, they simply took a different approach. As a dev, I can appreciate that.

I have that and I disagree, it may work well, but the UI of it is horrible. I prefer the PMDG's take on it much better. Aivlasoft's UI looks outdated and bloated.

Well, someone said that there weren't any EFBs for V4, so I was just kindly letting them know there was one - individual tastes aside.  Personally, I love it and run it along with Navigraph Charts and several other programs.

Maybe you'll like the Avilasoft EFB V2 better, out in about a week.

 

Best wishes.

I'm not, obviously, a software guy., But having around 100 addon airports with at leat half of them being able to handle a 787 it's not my personal preference to search and insert airport charts and maps (or even create them myself) to show up in the EFB's charts or on the ND's airport map.

I was talkin about its usage in VR and not about the functionalities of the EFB itself.

GCBraun,

I’m with you on seeing the EFB in VR, the only environment I fly in using FlyInside. All the charts and documents in full view under the hood!
