I'm hoping for a dash 8 :) Robert announced it would be a dash in the js4100 overview thread

[i love the looks of the Q400. They are the latest and greatest and do they ever look good. I see them everyday at KDEN in the Frontier Livery. I know the other earlier models have fans but would love PMDG to model something that is growing in worldwide fleets.Whatever they offer,I will probably end up buying. It would be great to be able to use something with my several virtual airline schedules.

While I like the plane, those Q400 engine nacelles are just plain ugly. If they were any bigger, they could have put seats in them.Jeff P.

I'm personally hoping for a Dash 7 or Dash 8-Q400. That'd be fantastic.

What about a Dash 80?
Thats very unlikely, the Boeing 367-80 "Dash 8" never achived more than being a simple prototype. :( - Philip

Hmmm... interesting. But RSR wrote : "the next airplane in the series will be a Dash" (with a capital d) so, unless the honorable Prez takes pleasure in teasing his eager customers, I guess this excludes sub-variants such as, for example MD dash 95.Too bad about the MD-95 (or B717) by the way : I read it has the same FMS and instruments as the MD11. Would have been great for guys like myself who are too lazy to reprogram their throttles and who hate long haul flights (and even short flights in large machines ...) :( Cheers,Bruno

Well the Dash8-100 looks a little 'too' similar to the J41 for my liking, so something bigger perhaps. How about a good Dash7 ?Won't be the Dash6 as already modelled.John Ellison

Just my 2 cents but I think the -400Q would be the best seller hands down. Got the "almost" speed of the jets and the ability to be a regional a/c with all the lastest goodies. A dash 7 would be ok .......if all you wanna do is bush flying which is all they are used for nowadays.

No sooner has the J41 "secret" been revealed, you are all starting to speculate on the next release... and the J41 isn't even out yet... :( Andrew

Give it a day or two before the first "are we there yet?" posts appear :( The Dash 8 Q400 seems very likely. I love the Dash 7, though, amazing short takeoff/landing capabilities. I've been on it countless times as a passenger, and once had the good fortune of getting into the jumpseat on a beautiful winter day in Greenland.

I have also flown with the DASH7 from AirGreenland. S

Yeah but nobody has made one for FSX yet, and FSX needs a good Dash 8, i know we already have a good turbo prop the ATR 72/500, But im waiting for someone to make a dash 8, Q400 would be nice!! If i knew how to make an aircraft for FSX id do it!!
I have and enjoy the ATR-72 which meant I wasn't much interested in the J41 as I thought it would be more of the same. Until I saw the screen shots, that is... Wow. The difference between a good FS2004 port, and a cutting edge FSX is night and day. (Plus the ATR has no failure model so this should be very interesting) As for which Dash? If this was a democracy I would vote for the -6, fortunatly it is not a democracy or the MD-11 would never have been done.
