Aircraft Updated : CRJ-700 v1.1.2 plus -900 Announcement by Ad Simulations

 

CRJ-700 v1.1.2 update News! header.jpg

 

AD Simulations have released an update to their CRJ-700 to Version 1.1.2. Again another significant update to making that five updates since the late 2021 aircraft release.

 

Before we get into that... AD Simulations has also announced that coming soon will be the another variant of the CRJ with the -900 longer version of the aircraft. If the expected quality of the of the -900 version matches the -700 it will be very nice indeed. If it will be a standalone price or coming with a discount for current CRJ-700 owners (expected!), and no released date has been currently announced, but it will be another excellent addition to the long neglected CRJ range...  images!

I am the first to admit that although the modeling and features are first rate from AD SIm, the performance and some features (notably the EFB (Electronic Flight Bag)) which doubles as a Menu, is still below par for an aircraft of this quality brand. But a recent flight of the v1.1.2. update said it has already improved considerably with the consistent updates, but I didn't like the castor loose nosewheel at all (It is going to looked at), here is the full list of changes in v1.1.2.

 

Changelog v1.1.2.

Fixed Rudder Limiter working in flight making rudder inputs less drastic 
Added Option in Tablet for Honeycomb Bravo hardware throttles. When selected Spoilers will stay deployed
Made All Displays brighter and added individual minimum brightness knobs to each corresponding display which allows all desirable displays brightness combinations
Adjusted autopilot behavior for less aggressive engagement and disengagement of certain Flight Modes
Enabled ILS Course adjustment (green needles now can be rotated)
Enabled ILS Frequency to be set via both RTUs
Redesigned Flight Model Roll behavior from being very unstable to very realistic, with and without Flaps and Gear deployed/retracted
Adjusted Roll Trim Speed
Fixed the Landing Elevation issue that didn't let users change the landing elevation and made adjustments to CABIN PRESSURE Panel
Make Slats Display correct on EICAS 
Adjusted Autopilot disengage sensitivity
Made V speeds being affected by Flaps Settings
Fixed Steering Wheel Switch functionality
Added magenta color on CDU POpUp
Fixed Master Alarm On the initial power up
CDU BRT little knobs are now operative
CAS boxing logic fixed
Fixed AC Electrical Power logic when both APU and ground power are available. Electrical system priority will prioritize the APU over the ground power
Added Commands for Idle and Shutoff Detents
Fixed Nose Gear Animation in sharp turns. The angle of the front wheel did not fit the turning radius of the plane causing the look like wheel was sliding over the ground
Added Arrow on PFD indication State and Side of the Autopilot being ON
Fixed Crackling Reversers Sounds
Fixed messages appearing while using Thrust Reversers when engaging and disengaging thrust reversers LEFT/RIGHT REVERSER UNSAFE,UNLOCKED and INOP
Adjusted Gear data for aircraft to properly sit on the ground
Adjusted coefficients of friction for wheels for better ani-skidding behavior
Fixed bug when wind is set to direction from 0, wind arrow number flashes between 0 and 36
Fixed Standby Compass Lighting behavior when without energy it could be set to DIM and ON being lit
Fixed R and L WING A/I message on EICAS
Fixed APU SOV OPEN status message present after APU start up
Fixed L/R REV UNSAFE and L/R REV UNLOCKED EICAS messages appearing when the aircraft is on the ground and thrust reversers deployed
Rudder “brick” on the PFD is now functional
CABIN PRESS panels MAN ALT Switch initializes in the HOLD position now
 

The v1.1.2 update could be called a refinement update, with lots (no loads) of fixes and tweeks to get the aircraft into a more robust role, the feel is certainly far better that I last remembered, but still a bit wobbly on a pointed stick in handling, but these sort of finer handling details take time...  the more later -900 version will be a good comparison on how the combined refinements have come along. You shouldn't expect the same with the later released aircraft, it should be more well rounded on release.

But overall the AD Sim CRJ-700 is starting to deliver on it's promise in this well priced under US$50 price bracket, The CRJ will certainly in the future be a staple of the sort of the quality aircraft required today by X-Plane Simulator users.
