the FT CRJ for FSX has some system modeling changes from the FS8/FS9 model.the feelthere CRJ is a wilco fleet aircraft = there is not a 3rd page of the failure mode when one engine is stuck at 2/3 thrust when it the 10th day of an even numbered month model of systems and FMC.you get a FMC that will get you from takeoff to landing, including SID/STAR; more true to live autopilot (not the false modeling of the FSX CRJ); FADEC; and much more.so ... like that Abus series, but not the 737-classic simulation.look at the old support forums. what is described there as function and system modeling will give you some idea of what you will see in FSX -http://www.iemit.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=4--edit: clarification--

Well it would be nice if you could buy it. The pay system or something is down.

I probably missed it but on the main page for the CRJ there are several download options. One states "Regional Jet Vol 1." The other says "CRJ New Generation Update." What is the difference?My assumption (I know a dangerous thing) is that the Vol 1 download is for new customers and the New Generation Update is for customers that had the FS9 product and want to purchase the FSX version with a discount. Is this correct?fb

back in the dark ages the product was released as the CRJ-200 series. it was updated (part of going from FS8 to FS9) and the expansion of the -700 & -900 series were added. the 700/900 are the 'New Generation'the support page lists some more details -[blockquote]http://www.wilcopub.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=support_CRJ[br]FSX Version policy :If you own a CRJ Experience version : no FSX update available. FS9 installer only. If you own a CRJ Experience plus CRJ New Generation upgrade : The FSX version (Windows Vista compatible) is automatically added to your download account. If it is not displayed, contact us so we can reset your download counter. If you own a CRJ2004 (Full) version : The FSX version (Windows Vista compatible) is automatically added to your download account[/blockquote]there are also details on the support page for those with the CD version to migrate over to FSX.--

OK, on the download page (did not find anything about an account but I did sign in with correct logon) there is a link for "CRJFS92FSX_Upg_1a." However, the instructions call for a CD. I don't have a CD. I downloaded my CRJ200/700/900 from Wilco.BTW - is this an FSX version or is this an FS9 aircraft converted to FSX?Also, I clicked the link and received a page not found error message.fbAdditional - On my download page there is no mention of an FSX version - only the original New Generation.

If I'm correct you download the fs2004 version and install it in the FSX directory and then on the extras page there is a free FSX download.

I'm confused. I already purchased the FS9 CRJ and upgrade. It appears the only way to download the FS9 product is to pay for it again. It appears this whole process is convulted.fb

fb:as wilco states, "If you own a CRJ Experience plus CRJ New Generation upgrade {for FS9} : The FSX version (Windows Vista compatible) is automatically added to your download account. If it is not displayed, contact us so we can reset your download counter."you need to check your wilco download space.--edit: detail added--

OK I'm officially confused. I went to the Wilco site and clicked "download now" below Regional Jet Vol.1 - CRJ (Full Version). My shopping basket showed CRJ 2004 for EURO 24,95. I purchased it. Now looking at my receipt, I was only charged EURO 20.62, and the file in my download account is crj2004_10.exe. There is no mention of an FSX version (listed as CRJ_FSX_1a.exe on the support page) and the file name is not even the latest FS2004 version (CRJ_FS2004_2a.exe). What's going on here? I have no previous CRJ version, when I clicked "Download Now" below the Full Version I expceted that I was getting the FSX version?I'm going to e-mail the same to Wilco, but I'm hoping someone can shed some lights on this as I'd like to get up and running ASAP...Thanks

" "If it is not displayed, contact us {wilco} so we can reset your download counter." "I've contacted Wilco, and hopefully they'll get things straightened out. What I don't get is why I would have recieved any other product other than what I ordered...I didn't have CRJ 2004 previously installed.

I downloaded the FSX upgrade from the support section of the Wilco home page (which I thought was only for the CD version). I then installed the FS9 version that Wilco provided me into my FSX directory (moving the folder from the /aircraft folder into the /simobjects/airplanes folder). I then installed the upgrade and took it for a test flight.That seems to have done it, all systems seem to be functioning. This is an excellent bird, I really had a blast on my first flight and look forward to many more. It's going to be a bit of a learning curve (I now realize how spoiled I have become by the sophisticated auto-throttle systems on the Airbuses and Level-D 767!), but I look forward to tackling that learning curve. Great job feelThere!

Take a look by chance are you able to push and control the fuel buttons? For some reason on mine , which I installed the same way as you a few of the buttons don't work.

Also does anyone know how to get cold and dark or do I have to shut it down and save it? Also do a cold and dark and start the APU and see if your NAV and BCN lights work. THanks

I does seem that Wilcom can't get its act together. One thing I would do is fire my Webmaster. If they can't design and maintain a commercial Web site then why does anyone expect them to produce good products.Hey Wilco - hint, hint.fbPS I'm still waiting resolution on my problems with the site. I sent an e-mail and they responded with a lengthy set of steps to get the aircraft. Unfortunately the procedure didn't work because I already have a registered account. Go figure!

You're right actually, the fuel buttons do not work. So I guess there are still a few systems inoperative with this backdoor method of getting things running.Hopefully I'll hear from Wilco soon to get things cleared up as CRJ_FS2004_10.exe is still the only file I have the option of downloading through my download account at Wilco.
