I flew the 747...

Recommended Posts

I, flew in from Sweden to IFC in Blackpool UK. Only for once in my life meet people like me... enjoying the flight sim world. Right at breakfast i logged in to PMDG site just to get an update and to my joy i saw that PMDG was attending IFC. Once there i ran around like crazy finding em, they where nowhere to be found but soon enough i got my eyes on Lefteris busy seting his system up in Aeosofts stand... Now what do you think my first Q was?... It was more along the way of a demand! PLEASE LET ME FLY THE DASH FOURHUNDRED!!! And i did, in and out of 9L at EGLL and it was beatiful! I asked him when i could get it.... when it was to be released. Do you wanna know what he told me...... He said soon! So hold on this is going to be the one jet...MattiasBAV 1188

Did anyone take pictures of the event?I haven't spoken to Lefteris yet, so I don't know if he took any.

We've got pictures (four to be precise) and I will try to get more (and more detailed ones). Will upload them tomorrow and post you a link.I actually flew a complete right hand circuit at Heathrow. It works pretty well, very intuitive, all my major issues (spoiler arming) have been resolved. Pretty impressed by the framerate and performance as well (was not running on what I would call a high end machine, still very smooth).

Hello,Yeah I flew the bird too. Just one word : AMAZING how they could simulate the accelleration of that heavy bird. And the take-off sounds, just like real. ;-)All the technical and systems things I could think off where there. PMDG did a wonderful job. One downside I don't think I will be able to use it in my B744 cockpit project, as the offsets will not be available for the interface cards :(B. rgdsMichel

I also tested the PMDG 747 at IFC yesterday and let me just say the wingflew is very smooth on landing, there was a gentleman in a blue shirt demonstrating the hydrolic systems, which he did very well....the guys at the Aerosoft stand wasnt saying anything, by the way the pc which had the PMDG displayed wasnt a mega fast system it only cost around 1000 euros, all i can remember it was a p4 3.2, 1gb ram,etc...cannot wait for the release ordering my new pc later :)cheersscott waterworth

System it was running on:AMD Athlon XP 3200+ (or 3000+, don't know right now)1GB RAMATI X700 PCIe 128MBPretty smooth flight was possible, machine is similar to my configuration which i am running the 737NG on (quite smoothly). Lefteris was so kind to tell me that I would quite surely get higher framerates with the VC and 2D panel on my machine.Kudos to the PMDG team, incredible job, and we will not have to wait very long, as well.

Sounds to be a very similar system to what i've got, although i have a 256mb graphics card (but not a great one!) So this sounds really good :-)

HiI saw it on Saturday, it was great FMC detail like nothing else !!I left a door open (oops)and this showed on the door page of the lower DU.I hope you all have plenty of spare monitors as you will want at least3. By the way the settings page has an option to undock the overhead without affecting the main view.It's everything you have been expectingSteve

I also saw the 747 at Blackpool although didn't fly it.The bit I saw was someone in the VC zooming and panning around and the effect was totally different to any current VC I have seen. Well done to the PMDG team, I'm sure we will all be amazed when it is released.Just a shame that you were tucked up on the side of the Aerosoft stand, probably why G-MIDY missed you.
