    Kudos to you, dear Rudi, for your absolutely great response. You are an absolute gem for the community. Will be doing some tests later with a fellow pilot and captain from Lufthansa Group today and report back. Cheers Baz

    Dear Rudi, you're perfectly right - the real-world procedure we use for RWY28 is DKB5T when coming from SW, which consists of DKB-LETKU-UPALA-CF28-EDDN28ILS. I would normally have to set this up manually in the DA62 G1000 due to the absence of SID/STARs in the present version. So I just tried what Sean's plane does when selecting RWY28 ILS. All the aircraft has to play with is the Aerodata 1901 data, and what it comes up with is ALB (we colloquially call Allersberg ABG as there is a good pub there 🍻) So I suppose it is using some outdated data from P3D, ignoring Aerodata. But my point is that - whatever procedure is active - the DA62 doesn't follow it properly. So I suppose we have to set up all approaches manually for the time being. Good point about angles (or angels 😂🙏). RWY28 ILS is also slightly lower than 3% 🧐. I will check the ILS Z again. Hope you got some good sleep, Cheers Baz.

    .... happened again today in EDDN. Approach for ILS28, after direct ABG (iaf) FPL jumps to a random segment and the DA62 turns straight towards the field, ignoring the procedure to OSNUB. Again, only a manual intercept of LOC/GS worked 😝 https://drive.google.com/open?id=1e68LKT-CtkGxYVmyynk0K6CJTEW8EZon and https://drive.google.com/open?id=1d0hrDe3H3wGcASe2bjGHcpje6rWmsK5x

    Hi Peter, sounds familiar - I have sent my 2cents worth to Sean. Servus, Baz.

    Thanks a lot, Rudi ! It's interesting - we used a flight plan from EDMO to LOWS yesterday which is quite different in detail if we flew it today - so here's to Navdata updates 😂 I've written a PN to you. Cheers Baz.

    Dear Rudi, thanks a lot - you will really enjoy having the up-to-date AIRACs, I get dangerously confused if they're too far off the real aircraft I am exposed to. There are lots of changes in 1901 from 1813 😉 I think it is essential for everybody owning Sean's wonderbird to have them through Aerodata (unless he's planning some direct Navigraph support in the near future). Given the amazingly low price tag of the 62 (I would have been more than happy to shell out $99 for it), it's not a big expense at all. One other small question as you have been testing the aircraft so thoroughly: when you change something in the configurator like de-ice fluid or oxygen, plus other settings, the only become active after a reset, not straight away - is that meant to be that way ? I am actually in Speyer quite frequently, so let's meet and have a drink somewhere in the Maximilianstrasse if you like 🍻 Cheers, Baz.

    Thanks, dear Rudi - don't be too modest... 😎🙏. It is indeed the ILS approach to 26L using the most recent AIRAC (1813r1, valid until today, 1901 will come later tonight) in the DA62. Just tried LOWI-LOWG and the approach to 35C worked very well. It seems a problem that doesn't occur at all airports. Cheers and keep up the great work. I can only guess how much work must have gone into your tutorials.... Baz (EDMO)

    Hi guys (perhaps the resident gurus Sean and Rudi might read this :-). first of all, a very happy 2019 to the community. Big kudos, Sean, for creating the best GA aircraft for P3D on the market with brilliant aerodynamic behaviour and - for a first release - amazingly good G1000 simulation which we shall be excited to see grow and develop further. I've been involved in the R&D for a robot-based full-flight Level-D simulator for DLR (see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGnKxWZqahE) and therefore spent a lot of time in the DA42. We also fly the TBM850 in the real world, so the G1000 feels a little bit like the home office. I've noticed some unpredictable behaviour which never occurs on the real thing: after setting up approach normally (navdata used is 1813r1 through fsAerodata) the flight plan/autopilot correctly goes into direct mode to the iaf. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1yvL_9bbQvIyGo_uuR-OJuh_7tvUgVDNW (MFD) On reaching the iaf, instead of following the prodecure, it will jump to a random segment or even two further down the legs list and the aircraft turns to a random heading towards the field, not even the one it lists on the PFD: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1N7NCMfr2mt_MA5j9BDIhcfOlSM6JKWnx (MFD), see PFD: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UhWKJ9BW0BE1ReRh3xik6VtRDSV1ElEd So the only way to deal with it is to jump from LNAV into Heading mode and fly the approach that way. One other little problem is that some altitudes in approaches are wrong (a few thousand feet off, for example in approach to and at the iaf in LOWI. Could this be a problem with Navigraph data ? That's it for today, Cheers Baz.

    Thanks a lot, Peter - everything sorted - didn't see it immediately as it doesn't exist on the 777 🙏
