I've just completed the first three legs of the included bush strips adventure!  A great component of this package.  I absolutely recommend if you get the package make use of the included adventure around Eastern Victoria.  Although I've been there in real life I've never flown over it and I'm learning things every minute of the flights!

Hi

I have just bought the aircraft , looks great.

Would you know how I would be able to change the call sign and the tail number?

It does not seem to change from the default 24-4929,

Thanks

 

Hi,

 

Welcome to the forums.

 

I'm not sure if the ability to change the visual tail number has been implemented in the SDK yet.  It is possible to do with default aircrat, but not any 3rd party aircraft that I have seen.  You can change between several different visual tail numbers by changing the livery.

 

Cheers,

Hi David

I got those two aircraft from you for repaints some while ago, you wanted me to do. How would I be able to get the updated versions?

 

Thanks for your help.

Ebo, you star!  Let me know your e-mail address and I'll hook you up with a copy!  I lost your contact details, so didn't get a chance to touch base on your awesome CTFC and ZU-OPS paints you did, but they fit in oh so well. :D

Let me know if you have any more you want to add lol.

Smiler, drop me some pictures and I'll see what I can do. :) Side on would be great to get the decals repainted correctly.

Hi David

That would be wonderful, It would be great if you could do that. I have attached a picture of the aircraft as requested.

Much appreciated

Thanks

Picked this up last night, looks amazing and seems to handle pretty well.  I was wondering if you had custom LVARs for the panel switches?  They don't seem to be working with the Saitek switch panel and SPADNext using the normal MSFS 2020 simconnect events.

Tried to take it out on a maiden flight but whenever I click anywhere on the panel I get a CTD.   Tried an uninstall/reinstall, no difference.

Same for me, worked fine yesterday before the MSFS update.  Now clicking any of the cockpit controls seems to CTD.

I bought the aircraft a few days ago. As you can see from the attached photos,
almost half of the body of the pilot is visible from outside. Please save him from
not jettison himself from the aircraft when he does not intend to do so! I wonder
if this is happening only to me since I don't find other people complaining about it
in your Forum.

Hi David

Not sure if you had a chance to look at the photos of G-CFSJ, I can see you have added G-ANGL which looks similar (different prop).

Missing the Jab as we have not been able to fly it due to the lockdown.

If it is not possible then please don't worry,  

Thanks

Not sure where else to post this but I do have several issues with the Jabirus version 1.4.5. I sent all those a month ago to IRIS' feedback mail address but didn't get a reply yet. Here's the list of current issues:

  • Several cockpit items can not be manipulated with the mouse, namely the starter, the throttle, elevator trim lever and the parking brake. It only works by using the keyboard or yoke. The only way to start the plane (w/o using the HC Alpha) is to apply CTRL+E keyboard shortcut

  • COM1 power knob can only be rotated with the mouse wheel. There is no rotation tooltip as is the case with other rotary switches in the sim. Also, I think it would make sense to allow clicking it to the two available positions (i.e. left click on the on or off position).

  • The flaps lever can also only be operated by keyboard or yoke, but not the mouse.

  • The Jabiru J160 reacts to the landing light on my yoke (HC Alpha) and displays a visual light even though the plane is not fitted with that. My guess is that this is shared with the J170, which has a landing light.

  • In the J170, I get the “low volts” annunciation no matter what. Could this related to ALT and BAT being two separate rocker switches on the HC Alpha yoke while the plane only has a single master switch?

  • When using the external view, the engine sound is far too loud. Much louder than any other aircraft in fact.

  • The final issue I found is actually the most severe. It occurred to me twice today in the J170 that the throttle starts to reduce to 0 slowly on it’s own. When I push it up again via mouse scrolling or with moving my throttle it continues to go back down. I had this once after pausing and another time on final approach. I am not entirely sure what triggers this bug but there’s no way to mitigate it. I turned the engines and avionics off mid-flight, entered the menu, etc. The throttle keeps going down zero no matter what.

 

Especially the last one is really annoying and forces you to stop the current flight and go back to the main menu. I wonder how to reach out to the developer and raise awareness for those issues. For the record, I removed all mods except 3rd-party airports from MSFS and all those issues appear regardless.
