My feedback on E-Jets v2

Recommended Posts

Hello,

After months of flying with E175 and E195, I think it's the time to provide some feedback. I am using FSX:SE and bought the plane from Steam store.

1- Lights isn't placed correctly:

2- Incorrect VNAV slope:

Here you can see the aircraft above the actual path, while VNAV slope is indicating above. this problem will lead finally to a high descent rate near the waypoint which is a big problem specially when it belows 10000' because aircraft has to reduce to 250kt while the descent rate is high.

3- Bad autopilot: There is a lot of issue in the autopilot:

  • When start descent, it descent below the magenta line (It initiate descent with very high descent rate) then it climbs, and repeating. I have to disconnect AP and handle the airplane prefctly with the magenta line then engage AP again.
  • When the plane near 10000' and reducing to 250kt, the autopilot stop the descent, until speed around 270kt (from 290kt) then it descents with really high rates due to VNAV issue. I have to deploy full speed brake.
  • When the plane near the cruise altitude (FL320 for example) it stops climbing at FL317 then it descents, then climbs again to FL317 and repeating. I have to disconnect AP and climb to FL320 myself then engage the AP again.
  • When the plane establish the ILS, it follows LOC and GS but near 400' AGL the autopilot lose the GS, I have to disconnect AP and land manually.
  • At cruise level, when strong turbulence comes for example, the airplane start climbing too much to the cruise level (e.g FL320). It climbs to FL322 then descent to FL318 and repeating. I have to disconnect AP and fly to cruise level then engage AP again.

4- Auto throttle issue: When decreasing the speed from 290kt to 250kt, I have to use speed brake because the VNAV issue. It starts increasing the engine power even if speed is 270kt (which is far from 250kt). I have to disconnect AT and reduce power to idle to use the speed brake.

5- FMS issue: After finishing a flight, I want to reset FMS for another flight. I just remove the runway waypoint in the FPL page (the only remaining waypoint) then fill data again. But V speeds not being removed. I have to remove it manually. Also the wind data in takeoff and landing page.

Otherwise, thank you for making a nice plane! It's a great move from default FSX aircrafts.

6- FMS speed management:

  • At takeoff, FMS maintains V2 speed until 2500' AGL. You should put a filed to enter acceleration altitude or make it as standerd (1200' AGL).
  • At landing, when making a direct to IF, speed dropped to VAC speed. It should based on distance not on waypoint itself.

7- Checklist issues:

  • In power up checklist, it requires you to run APU even if GPU is on. This isn't totally correct as must companies uses GPU first.
  • In descent checklist, it waits for transition altitude. That is okay in America and all countries which have a transition altitude above 10000'. But in Europa for example the transition altitude is 5000' which won't complete the descent checklist. It should check the transition altitude: If it above 10000' it has to be in the descent checklist. If below, put it in the approach checklist.
  • There no taxi checklist. That is really bad since I always forget to shutdown APU and turn on taxi light. At least put it in after start checklist.
  • No taxi to ramp (after landing) checklist.
