  1. I think you might be confusing the difference between the products. ILS frequencies at airports are set in the scenery files. Navigraph and Aerosoft FMS data simply updates the FMS data of a specific aircraft, it doesn't touch the simulator's scenery files. This means that your aircraft could be set to a different ILS frequency because the frequency in the scenery file isn't the same. FSAerodata updates the default scenery files to show the correct navaid frequencies and updates the simulator's default navigation (GPS) with missing approaches, SIDs, and STARs. The two types of products are very different from eachother but together give you the most up-to-date setup. Since you need a Navigraph subscription to use FSAerodata, it only makes sense to use Navigraph for your aircraft's FMS database and FSAerodata for your scenery updates. Keep in mind that FSAerodata won't touch addon scenery airports, those have to be updated by the developer of the specific airport. Hope this helps.
  2. Interesting.... I wonder if they realize that's just not true. We depart 1L & 19R all the time. And while 8R and 26L aren't generally used for departures, it does happen. edit: Just posted this on their forum, hopefully they'll change accordingly. This is simply not the case, here's how the actual airport flows:Configuration 1: Land 26L, 19L, and 19RDepart 26R,19L, and 19RConfiguration 2:Land 1L and 1RDepart 8's (8L primarily but 8R is sometimes used) depart the 1's for props (but with P3D limitations that probably isn't possible to restrict)Configuration 3:Land 1L and 26L, offload to 1R if necessaryDepart 1R and 1L@B26R becomes a taxiwayConfiguration 4:Land 19L, 19R, and 8RDepart 8's (again primarily 8L but 8R is sometimes used)
  3. Interesting how one is quick to call an addon release without Navigraph/navigation updates "inexcusable", yet openly admit to using another addon without Navigraph/navigation updates (which is apparently not "inexcusable"). 🤔
  4. https://www.instagram.com/787guide/p/Bgg814vBc7P/ The 787 uses an "off-idle" descent method when calculating VNAV PATH. This is unusual for most pilots who are used to a true idle descent. This in theory should lower the need for increased drag during descent and from what I have seen in many cockpit videos of the 787, the speed brake is rarely used. Unfortunately, it seems that VNAV was an after-thought for QW as I am always using the speed brakes on descent. Thier VNAV is definitely better now than on initial release, but it still has a long way to go.
  5. Because a compass works off of the Earth's magnetic field. I "believe" that on your modern aircraft avionics, the computer calculates your true heading based on your LAT/LONG position and your magnetic heading. However, some aircraft like your light GA and of cours sail planes don't have modern avionics to calculate this. Even when we did land navigation in the military, we would have to use magnetic heading, then convert using the mag dev to determine our "heading" on a map.
