      Yes advanced gauges are simulated but simple things are not working or are incorrect
      1. VOR2 incorrect indication to beacon with no DME
      2. True North and Mag North are the same value when airborne. Due to this the Course of the ILS
      shows incorrect about 30 degrees out.
      3. No GS holding on ILS with autopilot on APP
      4. Landing lights are not working and the Pulse of the landing lights are not simulated.
      5. ADF direction incorrect showing not to the beacon.
      6. No callouts of altitude on finals.
      7. Not following the waypoints in the flightplan and AIRAC data incorrect or incomplete.
      8. No option to adjust the brightness of the HUD in day time makes it unusable.

      These above points were send to support more than 4 times with an answer that the things are working on their side or they don't understand what I am saying.

      Read this http://www.avsim.com/topic/488788-wilco-falcon-7x/ before you buy.

      "Sounds
      Immersive audio experience with high quality digital stereo sounds recorded directly from the real plane."

      Somebody advertise this on their online shop.

      Let me tell you the sound recorder was not near a Falcon 7x. (Some mixed unknown default sound - the sound is awful)

      Version 1.5 more bugs than V1.4 (How is this possible?)

      1. Frame rates down from version 1.4
      2. VOR2 still indicating the wrong direction with no DME
      3. ADF still incorrect direction indicating.
      4. Pulse landing lights not working.
      5. When changing the course the course indicator keeps on changing course by it self continuously to different values. (In a loop changing the course value)
      6. Landing lights working at night but not at day, In day time there are holes for the lights that one can see through see the clouds through the light holes.
      7. GS holding incorrect no descend on the GS but aircraft is climbing.
      8. The PDU gauge's info on the top are cut off.
      9. Strange 2 x white lights on the tail.
      10. The True North and the Mag North indicate the same value when airborne making the indicated Mag North value out with about 30 degrees.
      11. No callouts of altitude on finals.
      12. Not following the waypoints in the flightplan and AIRAC data incorrect or incomplete.
      13. No option to adjust the brightness of the HUD in day time makes it unusable.
      14. The sound recorder was not near a Falcon 7x (A default mixed awful unrealistic sound)

      A friend visited and here are his comments:

      "My comments are based as a real time pilot for 40 years and a Flight Simmer since it’s inception more than 25 years ago.

      After flying the Falcon launched by Wilco my observations are as follows:

      · Of all the aircraft I fly (more than 150) the Falcon’s frame rate is the slowest/extremely intensive and takes up a lot of memory and performance.

      · Not able to fly aircraft i t o IFR as the NAV system is not working properly. VOR instrument indication erratic and is sometimes totally displaced in relation to the ground beacon. Tested it at different airports.

      · ILS glide slope active during approach but no localiser indication on the same instrument visible.

      · Aircraft acceleration on full power is totally wrong as it is to slow. You will run out of runway on most density altitudes of above 5000’.

      · N1 and N2 power on engine rotations do not develop full power. Cannot really fly like this.

      · Engine spool up is far to slow and will cause a crash on go around at 200’ with full load.

      · No reverse thrust indication ligths on engine instrument panel.

      · Cockpit to dark and panel and overhead panel lights do not work during day light.

      · Cockpit/instrumentation graphics unrealistic. Some of Wilco’s 2004 aircraft’s instrumentation design’s are far more photo realistic than this product. Can take some tips from PMDG, Alabeo and others.

      · Landing lights incorrectly placed on tail plane instead of leading edge of main wing.

      · Rotating beacon displaced on top engine intake of no 2 engine instead of on fuselage.

      · Engine sound is a computerised version and does not resemble the real engine sounds.

      It is clear that this aircraft should not have been launched yet and that the designers shows a lack of pilot background and experience.

      What a shame."

      Wilco confirms an unrealistic airplane:

      Support answers:

      "As already said, confirmed bugs will be fixed. But the fact that this product has been done under an official Dassault Aviation license, it doesn't mean that we are trying to make a high-end simulation of the Falcon 7X"

      "Aerosoft" removed the Wilco 7X from their shop for now.

      "Basically because the feedback from customers was rather bad."

      Version 1.6 is out and the following is not addressed :

      1. Frame rates down from version 1.4
      2. VOR2 still indicating the wrong direction with no DME
      3. ADF still incorrect direction indicating.
      4. Pulse landing lights working but globe to the right of light position.
      5. When changing the course the course indicator keeps on changing course by it self continuously to different values. (In a loop changing the course value)
      6. Landing lights working but globe to the right of light position
      7. GS holding incorrect no descend on the GS but aircraft is climbing.
      8. Strange 2 x white lights on the tail.
      9. When v/s option is selected in autopilot when changing the vertical speed with the roto the v/s jumps to 1100 v/s no matter the value change it jumps back to 1100. (Bug V1.0b returns in V1.6)
      10. The True North and the Mag North indicate the same value when airborne making the indicated Mag North value out with about 30 degrees.
      11. No callouts of altitude on finals.
      12. Not following the waypoints in the flightplan and AIRAC data incorrect or incomplete.
      13. No option to adjust the brightness of the HUD in day time makes it unusable.
      14. The sound recorder was not near a Falcon 7x (A default mixed awful unrealistic sound)

      At the moment it is only possible to fly this aircraft VFR and what a shame with all the high tech on board that is not working.

      Why don't you get your money back for the reasons you've listed and quit yer bitchin'!

      They don't want to give back my money that is why I will continue reporting the problems so that other people don't make the mistake I made with the purchase of this aircraft.

      Version 2 is out and

      1.The ILS system is now an absolutely mess. (Now unable to use this function not working)
      2.The Auto pilot doesn't disengage so it makes it impossible to manual fly the aircraft.

      Wish I'd have read this thread before buying this plane. What a dissapointment compared to the excellent Wilco ERJ 170/190, which is one of my all time favorites. The Wilco 737 is also good, if not up to the standards of the ERJ. At least it works, which is more than I can say for the Falcon 7X. One of the main reasons I decided to buy it is that the FMC uses airac data from Navigraph. Unfortunately the FMC is so buggy as to be nearly useless. Lots of other bugs in the plane as well. Maybe if you run it on a Cray it would work the way it's supposed to.
