Best Payware/Freeware VC Aircraft

Recommended Posts

I use TrackerIR4 and I am looking for the best high quality Virtual Cockpit aircraft for FS 9. I fly exclusively from the VC. I like Twin Tubo prop's up, Business jets, regional commercial jets, etc. I have PMDG 747, PMDG Beech 1900C. ThanksLynn

HelloI have just had a look at the screenshots for this FokkerThe OP asked for "the best high quality Virtual Cockpit aircraft for FS 9"No way is this anywhere near being a good VC, maybe 4 years ago but come on it is crude at best.

Yep you're right Mad Dog, but it's the only Fokker F-28 with a VC and light on the frames though system replication is very good. I like it.But I agree that the cockpit textures can be made more less bland and more lively.Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries http://fool.exler.ru/sm/fly2.gif"To go up, pull the stick back.

Hello RobI am thinking about getting this one, to be honest the VC does not look any worse than the aerosim birds and i am happy enough with those.What is the nightlighting like in the VC, are the gauges backlit?

Hi Maddog,To be honest I have the Fokker just this evening, so I havent tried it. I only performed a pattern to see how she handles with ILS etc.Will report back though..Oh and one other recommendation with a great VC. The new version of the Project Tupolev Tu-154B-2 (v9.6.1)Great on everything!Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries http://fool.exler.ru/sm/fly2.gif"To go up, pull the stick back.

DA's Cheyenne and the Aeroworx B200 for business twin turbos. Both are outstanding, but the Cheyenne has a faster gauge refresh if that's important to you. Two freeware releases that I think have amazingly good VC's--Rick Piper's Hawker Siddeley HS.748, and David Maltby's BAC One Eleven.For a payware regional jet (sort of), try Wilco/Feelthere's Embraer Legacy. I really like the VC in that plane, it's one of the few jetliner VCs that I can extensively use with a fairly slow system. I also fly in a VA with someone that uses the TrackIR with the Wilco/Feelthere 737PIC (on a VERY strong computer) and absolutely loves it.And if you ever feel the need for something smaller and single-engined, try the Sibwings Saab 91 Safir. Ultra-smooth 3D gauges combined with a VC that's got more clickability and "character" than anything else out there. It would be a perfect low-and-slow fit with a TrackIR.Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina

Hi Lewis,"it's one of the few jetliner VCs that I can extensively use with a fairly slow system"What do you call a fairly slow system?Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries http://fool.exler.ru/sm/fly2.gif"To go up, pull the stick back. To go down, pull the stick back harder"

Hi The Carenado C206, the Digital Aviation Cheyenne already mentioned and Realair range are very good paywareFor freeware, I think the Maltby BAC 1-11 & Trident, the NAMC YS-11 and the Aero Commanders by Milt Shupe et al are truly superb.CheersJames

Hi Rob,I have an:Athlon XP 25001 GB PC2700 RAMGeforce 6600GT 128MB 8x AGP100GB 7200rpm hard driveNot exactly state-of-the-art by any means. :) Most payware jetliners have VCs that cause too many stutters and slow framerates if there's a lot of cloud or graphic clutter around. The Legacy's VC is occasionally a bit slow to load textures for me, but the framerate hit compared to the 2D panel is minimal, and it's gorgeous. Plus, the gauge refresh is very smooth, smooth enough for me to fly hand-flown ILS approaches in the VC (which I can't do from many others).Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina

Thanks Lewis, our systems are almost spot on. Did you happen to have the ERJ-145? Is it better of worse on the framerate? Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries http://fool.exler.ru/sm/fly2.gif"To go up, pull the stick back. To go down, pull the stick back harder"

Hello, Twin Turbo Prop's are concerned. By Far the Aeroworx B200, and ATR 72-500 from Flight One. Happy Landings, Josh
