    Ultimate 787 Update - Version 1.1.3 Released by Qualitywings

    Greetings 787 Drivers!

    We are excited to announce that Version 1.1.3 of our Ultimate 787 Collection is now available!

    In an effort to continuously improve our 787, we have invested a lot of time into making this product much more stable, more realistic, more comprehensive and more refined. In short we have made this product much more FUN to fly.

    Leading the long list of fixes are significant stability improvements that eliminate random CTDs (crash-to-desktop) some users were experiencing. This was largely enabled by the automatic crash detection module we introduced with our previous update. Thank you to everyone who submitted reports!

    The Flight Dynamics have been further refined for highly accurate fuel flow and climb performance. Further changes address issues related to Panelstate loading, the Autopilot, the Flight Management System, Displays and many more. The full changelog can be found at the end of this press release.

    But as always this update does not only come with fixes but also some exciting new additions.

    We are happy to introduce PBR (Physically Based Rendering) to our exterior models in Prepar3D v4.4. We highly encourage everyone to upgrade to the latest version of P3D to benefit from the improved visuals. PBR models will not be available for FSX and outdated versions of P3Dv4.

    Liveries for the most part do not need to be redownloaded with the exception of Virgin Atlantic.

    New in this version is also Remote CDU support for the Lower MFD and the Electronic Flight Bag. This allows you to use any page on the lower display (most notably the CDU) on many different mobile devices such as an Android tablet or phone, iPhone, iPad, Amazon tablet, Windows Tablet or Windows phone.

    And finally a feature we are very excited about is the addition of Enroute Wind capability, allowing you to manually enter enroute winds or uplink them directly from ActiveSky.

    All you need to do is program your route and perform a WIND REQUEST on the RTE DATA page in the CDU. The 787 will automatically pick the closest weather stations to your route and uplink the information for more accurate ETA and Fuel Predictions. ActiveSky is required to be running for wind uplinks to work.

    For those of you who like to interface with your products using hardware we have created a new "Sim Builder's Kit" which includes everything you need to know in order to build your very own 787 home cockpit! Yes, this is a challenge and we are awaiting your photos!

    We would like to thank our customers for the feedback we have received over the last months. The scope of this update was largely driven by community feedback.
