Take-Off performance calculaton tool (TOPCAT)

Recommended Posts

Question:Is your intent to continue to offer this excellent tool to the FS community free, but have to re-register when the freeware license runs out?......Or, are we doing the Beta testing with time-limited license keys so that "we" find the bugs, with the "Final" being for sale?I don't mean to offend anyone, but I figure it bad taste to "product test" without the communities knowledge, just so one can develope a product that will be for sale......I'm certain this calculator has taken MANY man-hours to make, and I for one am grateful for your work. I'd just hate to see the community "used" in that manner.

TOPCAT is NOT a commercial product!You will never have to pay to use TOPCAT or some additional features.If you like the program, you can of course make a donation.Using a registration key gives me the opportunity to see how many people use the program and if there is still any interest.Best Regards,Christian GrillTOPCAThttp://topcat.ofplan.net

Great to hear! i for one think PMDG should be mentioning this tool as it certainly has made flight planning a) a lot easier and :( a lot more fun! Its a great add on for the Queen in my opinion and i hope that it continues to be improved and developed.

Thanks Christian. That is all I wanted to know. I certainly didn't want to offend, but I needed to ask the question.I was party to being a "tester" for what "we" (other fellow simmers) thought was going to be a freeware product. Turns out that after three months of input and updates, "Wigglepin v1.0" came out for sale, and of course, our license keys had expired. Ergo; "We" now had to buy the product "we" just got done perfecting.Certainly you could see how that would upset a community.Thanks again for your hard work and dedication to a passionate crowd!

Christian,I have just been trolling the forums for quite some time. I have had some health issues and nothing really worth posting in a while. This was definitely worht posting over...I just wanted to take the time to post and thank you for this program. Not only is it an amazing tool but it is a tremendously educational tool as well. This is one of those things that exponentially adds to the realism of the pre-flight routine. I got my reg code within 2 minutes. One question, any plans to expand to other Aircraft such as T7 or 67 for example? Just wanted to take the time to say thanks,-Paul
