Awesome!! I look forward to this!!

I never thought in my wildest dreams that I’d be excited to be in a CRJ :joy:. Can’t wait for this!

Haha I don’t get why people hate the CRJ so much. It’s one of the sleekest airliners I know.

I guess it must be due to the fact that it isn’t too comfy as a passenger :joy:

Yeah, I absolutely love to fly- unless it’s on one of those. Actually, if it were empty then I wouldn’t mind so much- but the cabin is just soooo small. I don’t hear a lot of pilots complaining about flying the jet though, and it was fun in P3D…

That’s why the CRJ550 was conceived! Check out some pictures of the interior.

I’m very curious to see how well the FMS is modelled due to the many limitations that MSFS shows in terms fake waypoints in STARs/Approaches etc.
Also will be interesting if/how the VNAV (at least the glide path indicator that the CRJ should have in the PFD) is supported since this is something missing in every aircraft/mod so far.

This plane rocks up and down as it climbs. This is normal ?

Yeah, that doesn’t look good.

IIRC The Dude mentioned that he was encountering turbulence on the climb-out.

That is autopilot correcting to maintain consistent climb speed because of wind and turbulence.

The CRJ does not have VNAV and autothrottle, so the autopilot will adjust the angle of climb to mantain vertical speed or speed depending on the mode you select.

What do you mean fake waypoints in stars and sids? Msfs2020 does that ?

Yes, it does. I think they are in the form of USR/USER waypoints. I’ve seen some really odd ones in approaches that, even with Navigraph data installed, don’t match what is on the chart. The course is right, the fix names are not.

Regarding the imminent CRJ release, I’m not terribly interested in the plane, more the technology involved in its creation. Once its out, other devs will be able to dig in to it, and see what the SDK can do.

I fly the WT CJ4 and I am very happy with it.

Maybe someone can post the differences of it
as compared to the WT CJ4

Did they decide to remove VNAV as of December when Hans said it would be there?

Isn’t the VNAV advisory?

The CRJ has no Vnav.

Did they decide to remove it after Hans said it would be there in december?
