Coolsky md80 or Maddog 2006

Recommended Posts

Hello,I do not fly via the VC. Keeping the fact that I do not use the VC, between the two aircraft listed, the Coolsky MD80 or the Maddog 2006?. Which aircraft is the better buy?. I'm not looking for just a pretty looking aircraft, I want realistic performance and systems.Thanks

At the risk of sounding repetitive ... Maddog 2006.I bought the Coolsky MD80 quite some time ago, but I never really warmed up to it. I found that it really pushed my system-not so much the framerate but the memory (I have only 1 gig). I would experience OOM errors, and the screen refresh was slowThe Maddog simulates a newer plane, models more systems better (IMO), and presents no problems whatsoever in framerate, redraw, or errors.Cheers!Joel

I don't own the Maddog but the Coolsky models the "classic" MD-80 with an old INS nav system and analog gauges.I do enjoy it but also have OOM problems on flights for longer than 1.5 hrs with it. I would compare it to the Dreamfleet 727 at maybe a slight notch below the GA727.

Mike,good choice there! The Maddog is a fantastic add-on, especially if you're into procedures and systems. You'll love it.Cheers,Petehttp://members.aol.com/pzsoulman/myhomepage/logo.gifGIGABYTE Light 3D Galaxy II Liquid CoolingENERMAX Galaxy EGA850EWL ATX 850W Power SupplyNVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel MoboCore 2 Duo E6700 1066MHz FSB 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775CORSAIR XMS2 2GB SDRAM DDR2 800GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI ExpressSBlaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.12 x Western Digital Raptor 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA Raid01 Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/sWinXP Home SP2CH Yoke/Pedals

Well, if their forum is anything to go by I would say the devs abandoned the maddog. They simply do not post there anymore and there is a few guys that have issues with getting their keys. It's a good aircraft with issues however, the fmc is broken if you do specialized stuff and there is most definitely a compatibility issue with AS6 with regards to icing.
