Recommend 737 and Panel combo?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering what the state of the art is for 737 flight models and panels? I've tried the greatest airliners 737 on a friends PC a few months ago. Looked nice enough, but I'd like some opinions on flight model / cockpit operation from someone who's had more hours. Any others at the top of the list?thanks!sg

My tops for best 737-> Dreamfleet 737 panel with Ariane Gmax model. I think until the PMDG 737NG comes out, the DF/Ariane 737 is the best there is.

Thanks for the plug - I mean LINK! :) :)That does look impressive. How long a wait are we talking? Will I be installing this for FS2k2 or FS2k4, since I preordered? If its an "its done when its done" situation, please excuse my asking.Thanks!sg

Hi, take a look at our forum, most of your questions have been answered ;)....we are in the first stage of beta testing, and believe me, it's being tested to breaking point LOL, as for when it's released, well, like most other groups, we will release only when it's bug free.Regards,Bob JonesPrecision Manuals Development Groupwww.precisionmanuals.com

today IMHO the best combination isDF737 Panel + Ariane exterior model.the visual model is more close to the real 737 than what i see today from PMDG. there are a few details which are incorrect (eg. nose). let's assume that this won't change at this stage of development.however my creditcard is ready to get the first NG panel around with integrated FMC :D from PMDG, but i will remain with the Ariane 737.Ariane will come up with the whole NG range pretty soon ;)

The PMDG visual model is sweet, a masterpiece to be sure, and isn't worth 'replacing' with an Ariane (that names leaves a foul taste in my mouth)

Whats that like to fly? More specifically to take off with?I read some of the info in the documentation for it and it states that the climb can be too steep in the straight climb. I have been considering this combo as the DF737 is a frame killer, the Ariane doesnt seem to be.Jonathan O'Connor

I reccommend the DF737 Panel with the Ariane 737 Model. The PMDG 737 looks great but IMO the nose looks all wrong :(Of course it's still in beta and things can change :)We'll just have to wait and see.
