Let's just hope they didn't shove it out prematurely because they got scared of the competition (Airliner XP)!!A bit weird though, one day after the other group announces their bird... I'll wait on this one.EDIT: after reading the manual, it seems they have a very basic implementation of the FBW system: according to the manual, the direct link is not removed and their controlling algorithm just reconfigures the bird... (similar to what PSS had) Heck, there is even a freeware tool that simulates a basic FBW without a direct link...So, that's one down... :-)(if I'm wrong, blame the manual :-) )

Going to skip this one. AirlinerXP is going to be amazing and it's not too far off if they stay on schedule.

Like many others ( unless you're just loaded w/ $$ ), I'm waiting for the AirlinerXP. They not only look ( graphically ) the best but the features FAR outweigh that of the Wilco/Feelthere offering.GL to them though.

This release is already fubard. Post on feel there's forum:"For reasons I cannot express here the Airbus product is not supported by us yet. Until we sort out a few things with Wilco please contact them directly at info@wilcopub.com for support. We appologise for you for this inconvenience however we are sure the skilled Folks at Wilco can help you until we jump back.Thank you for your understandingVic & feelThere team"Translation: Wilco made the download link live without our permission, because, after reading the various announcements from airlinerxp, they got cold feet. ricardo

I guess for informed customers in this market, the choice is not hard to make. For me it's more "AirlinerXP or both" rather than "AirlinerXP or Wilco".

Ricardo, I always seem to see you starting flame wars and blindly bashing/insulting companies that work hard. wilco has messed up a lot, but please don't blame this on feelthere. Wilco decided to mess around with the patch naming convention with the 737 series, so people were really confused as to what version of the airplane they really had, feelthere used one naming convention, wilco decided it was great to just update the file without posting that there were changes to it.Translation: stop talking about things you don't understand

> wilco has messed>up a lot, Hard to disagree with that. Although I would substitute the present for the past tense. ricardo

Alexriccardo`s post seems to make sence to me but I`m wondering what if anything it relates to the 737.FUBAR is apt at this point all things being considered.Pete

I don't understand why Feelthere continues to publish with Wilco. Don't they read all the complaints from customers about them?

LOLAnd as if it was`nt bad enough for Wilco/FeelThere Lou Betti comes along and bumps the AXP thread just to clarify F1 server capacity.I kind of feel sorry for FeelThere as what should be a great day for them (assuming their product is not bug ridden)is really going down the toilet due to AXP and the shenanigans of their publisher(Wilco)Man talk about getting your thunder stolen.;)Pete

I started to purchase it but the wilco website is crawling so slowly it times out half the time. I can just imagine how slow the downloads will be. I don't have all day to download at slower than dial up speed so I guess this purchase may not happen at all.

Well, there are no downloads as such. I got the email confirmation with the download link, but the thing doesn't work. All I get is a message the file is unavailable after managing to download 2kb(!) worth of Airbus. Being allowed to press the darn Download button only three times, this will be loads of fun! Contacting Wilco, reset the counter, bla, bla, bla... Great job...I wonder, why did I even bother!Disappointed,Jure

Hi,did anyone already checked the capabilities of the implemented FBW? What happens for example if you pull the stick fully backwards after takeoff and hold it there?Just curious how close the implemented FBW is to the real thing?janosch

Seems like no one is able to even download the thing. Links not working.When and if I am able to download the Airbus, I'll post here when I try it. But it's getting late, so it'll probably be tomorrow. If Wilco's site works.Jure

Contact your credit card company and request a charge back. You have every right to do this, then re-buy when Wilco has sorted out the issues (whenever that might be).ricardo

Ricardo,good advice. I am patient, I usually don't whine or b*tch, but this is silly. They release an Airbus - let's face it: lots of people wish for an Airbus - and voila, the site crashes. I first tried at 16:30 and all I managed to do up until now, was to get my download counter up to 3. I mean come on, Wilco, you MUST have known that lots of people would buy this! To be so utterly unprepared is irresponsible to say the least! Now I'm sorry to have posted the first message at all. Here is the amended version:Wilco/Feelthere Airbus is NOT available!/soapbox mode offGood night!Jure

Well, hopefully the Airbus won't disappear anywhere tomorrow so we can maybe get hold of it. Better a day later than never :)

What a pity more publishers don't operate like FlightOne.... There, at least you get to download the product BEFORE parting with any money. Just the activation then.

I dont see why everyone doesn't use flight 1, why is wilco even in business? You just cant beat flight1, especially with a 30 day refund period so you can try it out first.

I too feel sorry for Vic. I agree with the above poster, Wilco got scared and released it. I bet Vic wanted to get a few more things done and/or tested. Wilco as a publisher is a joke. Vic should have went with F1.
