    @Mark I did what you said, renamed the community folder and then it worked. I thought that this was strange, since the only things I have in my community folder are (payware) scenery and aircrafts, the same ones that I had on my old PC in fact. Nothing that should interfere with the f28...

    So I decided to do another reinstallation, removing the program using the Windows tool. But since I renamed the community folder it didn't uninstall it at all, so I ran the installer on top of the installed one already. All of the sudden it worked! Not sure how, but I have done 2 test flights now without any issues at all.

    @AlexEtz Thank you for the kind words. The F28 Professional was an enjoyable one for us to develop with it being so different to anything else, so we're glad to see our passion for it is reflected in the product. We'll pass on your words to the rest of the development team.

    We'll be turning our attention to the F28 again soon to give it a similar treatment to that of the recent 146 Professional Version 2 update. There are some new features coming to the F28 that we haven't announced yet, so there's lots to look forward too!

    Hey Mark, I tried to understand where this error of display was coming from, I think I have some clues, but I still have to investigate... it might come from GS AUTO FD mod, and VHF TUNING before ILS receiving, I will come back to you if I find anything more precise.

  • F28 RMI - Selecting between VOR & ADF

    @GroverJ41 Thanks for the clarification! The RMI turned into quite a headache during development and we had so little reference material regarding what each switch position stood for. Our coders must have found some reference material in the end to simulate the current logic.

    With regards to the purple bug on the HSI, it will point directly to the active Navaid. So if you have a VOR tuned into the VHF NAV radios they will indicate the direction of the VOR. If you have a flight plan entered into the GPS, they will indicate the direction of the next waypoint.

    Thanks for the reply, very nice to hear, it's cool to re-discover an aircraft with new way to use it.

    By the way the INS unit on the pedestal is a Litton LTN-51, could be useful in places with low VOR/ADF coverage, remote island hopping, VIP/GOV, etc...

    Maybe that could be considered after the release of the A300B4, even if it's a different unit

    @pm_pilot The F70 and F100 are still a little way from release so we haven't yet finalised the pricing models for them, but we'll be sure to let everyone know the pricing and if any discounts are available once the pricing has been finalised.

    @Mark , thank you for reply and fair enough. I would imagine that the only IRL-compatible way would be to remove the ADF and/or VOR controls for TUNE page to make sense and indeed that would likely involve more 3d & texturing changes than it's worth.

    But to be honest, I would love even the option to stick "inop" stickers onto the analogue controls (think pmdg/fenix weather radar style) to have the TUNE available :) So I will hope :)

    @Microlight Hey Thanks for your update. I respectfully disagree regarding the load station amount. Even a simplified model of the 10 load stations would be better than the current implementation. The aircraft weight and balance documents allow for zone loading with the included change in moment as seen in figure 7 in the analysis? Would 10 loading stations exceed the technical capabilities of calculating the CG location for the simulation?

    Additionally the aircraft is fully certificated to fly at the boundaries of the CG envelope as a normal operation with no additional procedures or consideration. For example in the CRJ-200 the aircraft is routinely operated at the maximum fwd cg, this is primarily a consequence of someone at bombardier thinking it was a good idea to certify the baggage hold to 3500lbs which necessitating taking the CL600 airframe and adding fuselage plugs in-front of the wing. Sometimes the aircraft was only within FWD cg limit because through the application of ballast in the aft cargo bin, sometimes in excess of 1000lbs.

    So I disagree that a) just because the operation is close to the limit that it isn't realistic and b) that the current system is the best possible system because otherwise you would need to account for every seat, that is a straw man fallacy. Is there a fundamental technical limitation the CG cannot be made accurate to align with the weight and balance of the aircraft?

    Thanks,
    Crash

    Edit: Additionally simply saying, "no we aren't planning on taking the time to update the code base" is also a justifiable reason. Cost benefit analysis are a driving force in decision making and planning.

    @michaelth The "Fuel Flow KG/HR" text was based on our reference aircraft, and as the text is part of the texture (as opposed to it being a text decal) it wouldn't be possible to swap that via an option on the EFB.

    We can look into the possibility of having the units on the display toggle between KG and LBS via an option on the EFB, but this may be confusing if the displays are all indicating LBS and the text indicates KGs.

    We've logged this on our internal bugs/feature request tracker for us to take a look into for the next update to the F28.

    @flyforever The 'TOGGLE GPWS' control assignment can be used to silence the U/C horn silencer.

    Thanks for looking into it!
    No worries about the timing, it's not exactly game breaking, just a little bit odd.

    I personally would fully support removing the GPS from the aircraft with the introduction of the UNS. It would be more accurate to the time period when F28s were most in use and it would maintain the use of modern procedures and waypoints for those that want to do it that way.

    The "right" answer seems to be to go the route that some other developers have been going and coding a fully custom autopilot vs relying on the default MSFS one, but I can empathize with a desire to not spend development money on that at this juncture. Everything I've heard about the default MSFS autopilot sounds like it's just hot garbage.
