Are you one of the 65,000?

Recommended Posts

Are you part of the 65,000 and counting that have downloaded the Fokker 70/100's? If you are not, then get out from under that rock, put your Cessna 172 away, and get some heavy iron!A big great tremendous Kudos to the creators of the Fokker 70/100's.When it comes to freeware quality, they have gone above and beyond! You would expect to pay for something this terrific, but you don't have to, it is free! The textures are right on the mark. I was comparing them to a book I have, and you couldn't get any closer if you tried. I have never flown one personally, but I have flown in one (US Air), and the flight dynamics are great....Great job, and thank you for supplying the sim world with your wonderful creations....

Well actually I'm not one of the 65,000. It looks absolutely fantastic without a doubt, but I'm not really into flying passenger jet types - more of single engine piston powered spam can driver meself. Although I *am* tempted I know that I'll only fly it a couple of times before going back to the 172 and pottering around at 2000'

Heck yeah! I probably account for about 15 of the 65,000 downloads, because I downloaded most of the wonderful lvieries!

I downloaded my share too. They're wonderful aircraft, Project Fokker did an amazing job on them! My last few flights have been in them! Only problem is I cannot get tune to the radio because they won't show up.

Looking forward to the VC model coming out next year.If you don't have it, even if you don't like airliners in FS, GET THIS DOWNLOAD!!! You will be glad you did. :-ukliamLarry Brown Visit American Virtual Airlines.www.flyava.org http://www.flyava.org/images/AAlogos/Banner2.jpg

What a fuzz, does it have all systems replicated, does it have a programmable FMC. Don't like only eyecandy...:(Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries

Yep, I downloaded virtually all the liveries! However, I tried a flight with the TAM F100 from Belo Horizonte to Sao Paulo, and during the flight the a/c pitched up into a high angle of attack - and started stalling. May have been my yoke needed adjusting, but I wonder if anyone else has had this problem on reaching cruising level?Robhttp://www.btinternet.com/~rob.corp/images/sig.jpg

The aircraft looks top notch, but the panel looks weak. What do the rest of your guys think?Robb

There is a new panel in the works (and VC) but still it's hyped, no all system replication blah no FMCIt's freeware for God's Sake! Some people will never be happy!

I'm happy to pay for a panel that has most/all systems simulated. so happy I am ..as always....:)What's the fun at only looking to a panel and can't do anything else but to kick in FS's autopilot..Rob "Holland&Holland" de VriesFor accurate and custom made ambient and nature sounds(sets) for Lago's FSSoundscape go to:"What Is It Like to See with Your Ears"

That's what payware is for, what's the point of complaining about it on this plane that is freeware??? I have enough FMC Panels (Payware mind you) to keep me busy. I'd rather fly this plane myself then let an FMC system to it for me ;-)

Because I like aircraft as real as it gets..(within the limits of blah blah..) I like an aircraft complete, so when flying this good looking fokker, my wish is that not only simulates all the eyecandy but also all internal systems so not only FMC but also hydraulics, electronics. Look at the FREEWARE Socata Trinidad, highly complex and rather complete..Rob "Holland&Holland" de VriesFor accurate and custom made ambient and nature sounds(sets) for Lago's FSSoundscape go to:"What Is It Like to See with Your Ears"

I did not use the panels and sounds from the Fokker website. What I do is use panels tha I already have this saves on adding a bunch of gau files to the gauges folder. Saves on some memory. I am using the DC-9 panel and sounds for the Fokker. This may not be realistic, but since I have never been PIC of the Fokker in real life, I won't know the difference. I am more than happy with this and other freeware of it's caliber. It is truely an art form, designing aircraft and sceneries. When it only cost me my time, then that is a price I am more than happy to pay. Having hours of short haul fun.....
