In my opinion, you definately should buy the two products.Although slightly dated by today's fast-moving standards, these are truly excellent renditions of the two Boeings, particularly if you enjoy fully detailed panels and associated avionics systems. And they're very 'flyable'.They're terrific as individual packages - bundled together, they'll make excellent value.Enjoy them!Toni.(PS - No, I do not work for Phoenix! :-) )

Ditto - The panels and models are both nice and the price is right on for what you get. The documentation is also extensive and does a great job of covering the subject aircraft and their avionics. The models are not GMAX, but look really good IMO.

Just to add to the other posts, yep buy 'em :-) Just be aware that they are not quite as complex as the 767PIC on the systems side of things and that they were designed for FS2k but, IMHO, well patched for FS2k2.One of them (can't remember which, may be both) is a bit of pain to program the FMC in that each w'pt has to be inserted, you cannot enter one w'pt then the airway and then the terminating w'pt.It is a while since I flew either the 747 or 777 but I still love them both in FS2k2 and I will have to roll out the 747 soon to do leg 3 of Johan's World cruise :-)

Where are they packaged together?On the PSS site I can only find them separately as always.This sounds like a great deal.

Even though they are a little dated I would still recommend the paks.Shame they couldn't put a little time into some gmax aircraft to go with their excellent panels. :-(SteveCYYZ

Er Steve,I don't think 'a little time' is quite accurate ;) , unless of course you want to prove me wrong :-) I'm sure you visit the PSS forum and know how busy they are with new aircraft.Having said that it would be nice if they did the 747 & 777 for FS2004, as well as a quality A340 which does not seem to be available from any 'payware' source now. :-(Rgds

Being a 777 fan for quite some time, I've been flying the PSS 777 panel since it was first introduced. Both the 747 and 777 panels offered by PSS are quite simply the best panels out there today for those aircraft. Go for it!Jeff

The models are quite dated by today's standards and the panels not as complex as the PIC, but for the money, they're worth having, especially since they can be easily merged with freeware aircraft and the simple fact that they're still the most detailed/functional panels for those two heavies. I've mothballed my heavy fleet in anticipation for Melvin's GMAX 747 & 777 birds, but they'll come flying out of my hangars as soon as they're out :)

Also, I forgot to add earlier, the PSS 777 panel is somewhat "special". Of course this won't be much use to you if you happen to be a purist, but as an added bonus, you can get the 777 panel to work almost flawslessly with a number of other aircraft out there. I use it as a panel for the POSKY 767-400, their A330s, the Simubuild A340-500/600 and a few 737NGs from various designers. All of the above follow the FMC quite well and autoland without any problems (a usueful feature if you happen to use FSMeteo).

Greetings,Based upon what I read here, I bought and downloaded both the 777 and 747 last night from PSS. The 747 installed fine, but the 777 did not. In the aircraft selection screen, the tail, wheels, and engines are missing. After entering the sim, same thing, no tail, engines, and wheels. I've tried to attach the screenshot.I uninstalled the 777, manually deleted the PSS777 aircraft folder and downloaded again, and got the same result. It appears there's a texture file missing. The error message comes up another 8 times before it goes away.Anyone else run into this and if so, how did you resolve it?Sincerely,Hans

The models use scenery files. Check where the installer placed those files and add those directories to your scenery database. They're in ADDON SCENERY in my FS2002 folder.

Mackintosh,I found the 777 files in the AddOn scenery folder. There are two bgl. files under scenery and a bunch under textures. Do I go to the library, locate those files and then just add them to my scenery area? I guess the auto installer didn't put them in the correct folder. Thanks for your help.I looked in the scenery library first but found nothing associated with PSS. Is PSS supposed to show up as an ADDOn scenery? Lastly, where was the correct location the installer was supposed to put these folders?Thanks,Hans

Suggest reading the manuals guys !!Sorry but that's what they are there for :)If your not aware, these are available as free DL's from our support website .. Thes ecebery error is simply because the library objects used in the 777 have not been added to the FS Scenery.cfg, It's in the manual , and help is always available on our support Forum

Will the FMC import flight plans from FS2002 (ie. those created in FS Navigator and saved as an FS2002 flight plan)?
