a good modeled 757?

Recommended Posts

Hi Daniel There are a couple of good 757's there for FSX. Have a look for one made by Quality Wings and the other is from Captain sims. The quality Wings one is what I am using at the moment, it gives you the choice of a simplified cockpit or the choice of being able to use the FMC. The one from captain sim is equally well modelled but has more advanced avionics. Both these models are pay ware but but you maybe able to find some fee ware, maybe some one else might be able to advice you on that. Regards Shaun

Thanks Shaun, i know the qualitywings and captainsim, these two seems to not demonstrate the real deal, the quality wings from what i heard is two simple and the captain sim is heavy and old and not accurate.i used to the 747 400x pmdg and the new ngx, but these two is not my first choice if could pick my own aircraft, i like the 757 better, just wondered if there any others close to the pmdg one, regards and thanks for your help, Daniel

I think the Captain Sim one is the one that is the closest to the PMDG. There's supposed to be one currently in development by Level D, but it has been in development since the dawn of time and there havent really been any info about the progress of this development. God knows when they'll release it

Hi Daniel I would maybe go check out the captain sim one again, I believe it as just been updated to be more accurate.

They released an update a couple of weeks ago. It fixed a whole bunch of bugs, there are still a couple of issues left tho. As far as the accuracy, the FMC is still suggesting very low vREF, in the 120kts ballpark, I would guess thats inaccurate, its certainly far slower than the vref of the 738

Daniel. Do a search on this forum. Lots of threads on the 757.I have both the Captain Sim and Quality Wings models.CaptainSim version is more detailed systems wise but very buggy. I've uninstalled mine and will never buy anything from CaptainSim again. Their support is useless and bordering on abusive IMHO.Quality WIngs version has less system control but looks, sounds and flies quite like the real thing.There is the freeware JustFlight 757 but it's just a very basic model. Great sounds and flight dynamics however.Hope this helpsAdam

After the 4.6 update, there are very little issues remaining, and IMO, the CS 757 is the most realistic 757 for FSX right now.

I think the sheer comparison of vref values leads to a wrong picture here. Different planes, different speeds. So it's not like 'same weight/size/whatever leads to same vref', not at all. In fact, the 737 is a rather fast landing plane, same goes for the MD-11 for example.In the sim, if the FMC gives you the same 'inaccurate' speeds as the flight model demands, you will actually not feel that anything is wrong. From reading, I think the former real world Captain on a 757 was ok with the regime of the vspeeds on the 757, so it's not like some 20 knots away from real values or something.Now I wouldn't vouch for any superior systems and FDE accuracy on the CS 757, but the same goes for the QW. Both give an impression of a 757 in FSX and, in my eyes, only some personal preference items separate them more or less.When thinking about buying the CS, waiting for the Christmas sales may be a good idea as it then comes in for only 10 Euros.

I agree the 4.6 update makes the CS757 more enjoyable to fly but I wouldn't say it's bug free. It still does not do a proper flare on an autoland. Essentially it fly's as well as it did in the 4.4 update, before the 4.5 update broke it, but it also fixes a number of display issues.

Thanks

With v4.4 and also with v4.6 on my system it lands with a perfect flare.
