Cloud 9 Phantom on sale...

Recommended Posts

For those of you who don't already know, the F-4 over at Cloud 9 is on sale for $15.80 right now if you enter the coupon code on there website. I just bought it a few minutes ago. This has got to be the best Phantom available. I also picked up the Tornado from Lago (mostly for the in-flight refueling module). Pulling up to the tanker in the F-4 is the coolest thing I have ever done in FS9.I also bought the 707 on sale over at Captain Sim...what a screwjob!!!Just a heads up.

I love that 707. It's really not that bad considering it uses some of the very earliest AP technology. I think the Level Ds spoil us. RH

I think the problem isn't that the CS 707 uses early AP technology...it's that it uses the wrong early AP technology. Just as they got caught with three-engine start-up sounds from their earlier 727 panel, they foisted upon us a 707 with a recycled 727 AP. Does it work...yes, sort of...but for a bunch of guys that went to such lengths to produce a detailed 707 panel, to see them re-using part of a different project that doesn't match with the rest of the 707 flight deck was something of a disappointment.Not to mention the fact that the fuel quantity sub-dial needles were completely screwed up, and fuel consumption reported by the gauges differs greatly from actual fuel burn, and the EPR gauges (the primary engine reference) display absolutely useless incorrect values.Finally, all this could have been fixed in relatively short order...but in more than a year nothing has changed. I finally hacked the panel and did it for myself.So, IMHO, it really *is* that bad.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

>I bought it but was dissapointed to find out its impossible>to use it in FSX. That is why I am holding out. From what I have seen it is a stellar aircraft, can't wait to see the FSX model!Thanks for the HU on the sale price though! Regards, MichaelKDFWNot anti FS9, just pro FSX!

Good Deal! I just bought it. It is much easier to fly (and land) than the Capt Sim F-104. I wonder how the Cloud9 F-104 compares to the Capt Sim version.RH

Will be nice if its a free update.
