Great news! I did a fast circuit and I think the PFD has higher refresh rate. I had a long time to fly the 787, can someone else confirm if he sees the same? It was the biggest reason I was not flying the 787 lately.

Nice list of updates. Flying it now to KORD. I see improved smoothness in the PFD and the LNAV is doing a great job in the turns.

VNAV has some improvement as well. The thrust levers went almost all the way to idle in descent and stayed there most of the descent. It never used to do that before.

I’ve been using trueglass with other airplanes. Most recent update had fixed any issues I was having. Assume no different for this airplane. Hopefully anyway!

"VC: Updated versions of TFDi TrueGlass & RealLight for P3Dv5.1 support"

That's an affirmative.

My request was based on that item in the list, asking if anybody who has trueglass or reallight installed would mind getting back to me to confirm that indeed it’s working well now 😉

...which Dave just did, thanks! I had not installed the QW787 because of TFDi. Time to reinstall it again!

Well I'm getting 30 fps in VC with all the lights on with PFD set to HD in the dispatcher, I've never had this frame rate before. They have improved true glass and lights performance IMO.
