Fenix Update Released

Recommended Posts

I am always impressed that Aamir takes the time to read and answer these threads. I for one am enjoying Fifi’s time at finishing school. I am confident that when she appears in her new pumps and choker- she’ll be lovely. Bring on that flap 3 FM fix and I can wait patiently.

He clearly believes in quantity before quality. 

He was talking about the quality of the flare. What would be the quantity-part you are mentionning?

I flew the update into KSAN earlier and it went very well.  My landing was excellent.  I still love this plane very much and can't wait for the IAE and 319/321.  😃

i thought the same, maybe it is the height difference between the A320 vs A330 cockpits.

Yes Blackbox has said it needs improvement but Blackbox does not seem to float his landings…

Maybe Bob should teach him too

Updated thoughts on FLARE

After several extensive tests (excess of 10 landings) and jumping back and forth between sims I have now come to my conclusion.

I think its pretty dam*n good.


But why then does it sometimes end up feeling "off" in msfs? I think I know the answer. The problem herein lies with the vast majority of glideslopes being misalgined and papis being incredibly stupid to follow in msfs. These anomalies cause the pilot to react, thus "destabilizing" the aircraft. More often than not this leads to a nose low or low pitch across the numbers, throwing the flare feeling "off" but not necessarily wrong. If you are destabilized at 50' (which should theoretically be across the threshold) your entire landing profile is going to be non standard. This leads to the two most common new airbus pilot types of landing.

-nose low, flare law activates, pilot goes oh word not allowed and and flares too abruptly causing either a balloon/float or driving the mains into the ground (ouch)
-nose high, flare activates, which triggers pilot to commence flare at higher AoA than optimal thus total AoA is above "standard" causing more drag and a rapid IAS speed bleed off, sometimes bleeding well below Vapp into Vls.

Side note about landing in Vls, in the real airbus 90% if you are in Vls and start the flare, it aint gonna work out for you lol you just lack the energy to arrest the descent rate adequately so most of the time they will be firm. You also run the risk of getting into an unemployment attitdue (11.7 degrees Tailstrike)

Unfortunately the visual approach guidance systems we have in MSFS do not work correctly all the time, in fact I think most of the time they are slightly off.


I also prefer removing the reactivity. With the latest update I dont suffer from that nose up the previous version had. I might bring it in just a bit but so far the linear feels about as good as it gets in normal conditions


Just noticed he has a "Not an A330 -->" caption in the video 🤣

Nothing personale or any harm by meens to the developer -  only suggestion -  Can we have a "Shade" guide to this bird because i have a really hard time finding something not so god "d" bluish in the cockpit 🙂

 All the video of the Fenix i see it does seems to be toned down .

 

Thanks  Michael Moe 🙂
