Captain sim C-130 question/thoughts

Recommended Posts

Hi all,So I got interested in the CS C-130 Pro when I saw it was a $19 download at Flight 1. As always I looked into reviews of the product before purchasing. Overall, based on the reviews it seamed like a good package, although there were many, many complaints about CaptainSim service.I decided to go ahead and get it anyway since it was a great price from Flight 1. I took if for a test flight out of March AFB and I really like the eye candy. I will have to spend some time with the manuals though, I cant even get the lights to turn on :)I guess I did not read enough forums. Based on the Avsim review RAF Lyneham (EGDL) was included in the package. But to my dissapointment it is not included in the download version (Booooo Hissss). I searched Avsim a found one freeware version.Does anyone know if the RAF Lyneham version that comes with the cd is available elseware?

geez I wish I had waited, I have learned my lesson now! I bought the C-130 a few days before it came out. Bit gutted now to see how low the price is!

Unfortunately this is the nature of this hobby. One day it's gold, the next day it's a has-been. :)I learned also, what ever comes out today as the "next greatest thing" I get 6 months later for a fraction of the price with the bugs worked out of it. I never buy anything until the first service pack or patch is out.It's all good.

As for me I can't wait for so long when new things are released :) When the sales come I try not to think about extra money I paid.
