My wallet is open, Where are the A/C?

Recommended Posts

So I recently purchased XP10 and I have been looking hard for transport type aircraft, really great freeware or great payware... Not only can I not find great, I cannot find any at all. I have been searching for Md-11's or DC9' or 10's and I cannot find any, anywhere. Here are some places I have looked...http://www.fspilotsh...1f0afb6f77a171bhttp://store01.prost...tore/StoreFrontIs this all there is? I can't seem to find much more than this.

It's going to be tricky finding aircraft specific to XP10 since a lot of amateur and professional aircraft designers are waiting for the first stable version to be released before putting any serious time into development. The good news is that XP10 stable is just around the corner, so you should see more activity soon.In the meantime, many XP8 and XP9 aircraft work just fine in XP10, though you might encounter some quirks.

Hello Tyson,I'm new to X-Plane also.I found 2 Extremely well done and High Quality aircraft both from X-Aviation.http://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/The BeechCraft T-34C Mentor by JRollen,Incredibly immerive Turbine with beautiful cockpit for sight seeing and great night lightingAlso The BeechCraft Duchess by Leading Edge Simulations is a nice twin engine prop that's cockpit is so realistic you think you can reach out and touch the controls.And the sounds of both aircraft are Amazing!Also a DC-3 is in late development from these guys aswell.But you cannot go wrong with these two aircraft.Cheers

Any thing by Javier Rollon is excellent, he has a CRJ 200 out that by all accounts is way over the top. I'm not an airliner person myself, but the artistry of Rollon is not to be believed. Of course that is not to belittle anyone else that haunts these boards. LOL, some of these other guys are unbelievable too.I have the T34C Mentor. It would be hard to outdo this one IMHO.

Radios on the 172 are quirky. Carenado has implied that they will be fixed in an update.
Psst... Who needs radios.

Jrollon's CRJ is imo, the best aircraft for xplane atm. It is an absolute necessity if you like airliners or you are a regional guy.

Ohhh my word... Well I officially apologize for having my mind wrapped around PMDG and that xplane would never be great if companies like them didn't switch over... Just a video but I am amazed...

had no idea people were making planes like this for xplane... If I was in charge of a 3rd party company that just got duped by M$ I would be on the phone with Jrollon saying, "who and how much do I make the check out for to get you guys on my team."

Oh yes, check out the ixeg 737, the xp jets 777 , and others. You will be presently surprised. Also there is an amazing Beaver coming out and i cant wait for gorans dc-3 and saab 340.

All have not been released yet. Just to make sure snwboardn understands.@snwboardn The CRJ ist just receiving update to version 1.4 wich again improves on a lot of stuff. It is a must have plane for X-Plane. The price may be high, but it is worth it.

I always wondered if making PMDG quality A/C could be done in xplane, I am glad to see that not only can it be done that has been done on a high level. I will probably get it eventually, my passion is with 3 engine transport A/C DC-10's and MD-11's. It does hold promise though. How does it handle in the wind is it much smoother than default aircraft, I see a ton of people complaining about unrealistic turbulence.

It depends on the aircraft, a payware aircraft with a good flight model will probably fly and feel smoother then your default aircraft. Xplanes wind and turb are a little overpowered but alot of the instability people are having might just be because of the flight model, not the wind. It all depends on how much time the developer puts into the flightmodel.

I would like to hear from those who have the crj200. How is the turbulence with this airplane? I am thinking of buying it, it looks really sweet. However, if it turns around its axis while on the ground with engines off, I probably won't be getting it. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk

Hi Richard, I have it and love it. They just released an update that some of us haven't received yet, so I can't speak on the new features.This is one aircraft that behaves very well. I actually really like the turbulence in the CRJ. It sometimes make me want to tighten up my seat belt, not too much bouncing around, just enough to give a real sense of realism. I've never flown one, but in this, you really get the feeling you are. Always hand fly on final, can be a challenge, but a lot of fun.The engines quit on me once at 31,000ft. I fly by myself, so it was a scramble to try and get the engines fired up again. Well, with 3,000ft to spare I got them going and we all lived to see another day.Glen

I tested the crj at 60 knots direct crosswind with the parking brake and engines off. The plane was moving on the ground. I toned it back to 50 kts and it didnt move. I also did some flying in these winds and it was pretty stable. I did even manage a 50 kt crosswind landing although it was really difficult, but stable non the less.

I like the sound of that. I might just buy it, then. Love jets. I have flown a lot with the f33, but would like a good jet (have several hundred hours in pmdg jets, and they are awesome, to say the least.). Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk
