Blackbox Airbus

Recommended Posts

Not usually one for pre ordering unless of course someone like PMDG, but have faith in my past experience with Pheonix and their new guise of Blackbox and the Airbus A319/A320 that is due for release hopefully in the next 24 hours.

Any one else ordered it so far? It looks on their facebook page great and we have been missing a descent Airbus in FSX. My faith is in the Airbus they produced for FS9 which still holds up today in dynamics. Not perfect but for a product released years ago was ground breaking at the time.

 

Time will tell though...

I'm going to wait and see what FSL come up with, but even if the FSL one is as good as we all think it is going to be, if the Black Box one has merit, then I will probably get that as well, since I quite like seeing different approaches to simulating the same things, and it is always worth supporting developers who come up with the goods.

They better have a nice flight characteristics other wise I don't think it is worth it. I would wait for the FSL as well!

I'll see what the reports on it are like. If it's good I'll buy.

Where is the website for this product . I am an airbus fan an i always stop an think why don't someone do a great airbus product for example PMDG are experts in creating amazing aircraft . But it seems like they only make american planes more since boeing have been around for such a long time. But is about time someone step up an make a nice airbus product. An check this out this one of the reason why i love airbus the way it made this tremendous landing in KLAX.

 

 

By the way respect to the pilots who made the landing . But also respect to the airbus itself for not plunging to the ground

There are a few like Flight Sim Lab and Air simmers, even if they are quiet, that are working on Airbus aircraft. The thing is, as I understand, that Airbus is so so when it comes to give out information about systems and other features as well for safety reason and also in the fact that they develop systems that they want to keep secret.

Wawo now i understand why there haven't had 5 star products to buy . Airbus should be a little more open with there aircraft info . It makes us admire more there aircraft an have hopes an dreams to become a pilot some day an pilot an airbus some day.

Also I think that simulating airbus style fly by wire with protection systems is the hard part which has kept many developers first filling gap within Boeing fleet first.

 

Airsimmer has been quiet for years, I don't think that they are making any progress. Flightsimlabs gets my trust.

You're showing when a landing gear bent sideways as proof it's a good airplane?

Another contender in the 'Airbus scene' is the Airbus X Extended from Aerosoft, due to be released in the coming months (weeks?).

Regards,

Problem with Aerosofts version is it does not play nicely at all with PFC hardware making it useless. They are releasing an SDK but PFC will never do the work needed to make it work. I hope for FSL or this BB version.

Maybe there are people who do not use PFC hardware (I don't even know what PFC means).

Aerosoft, due to be released in the coming months (weeks?).

 

Not holding out hope for that either. I think it was supposed to be released, what like last year? Plus, they had a leg up on everyone else-- the model, interior, etc. Basically it just needed the logic and a few minor visual upgrades. I'm looking forward to what FSL is brewing..

Next month I believe. Couple of new screens here http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/49292-airbus-x-extended/page__st__1920

Thanks for that Julian. But I'll believe it when I see it, and in a way I think they have shot themselves in the foot with the patience of buyers are now we have FSL and BlackBox's offings on the horizon.

Much as I believe in supporting developers, sadly they(Aerosoft) have dragged their feet on this one.

I agree, FSL will be the one to wait for Rick.

I suspect that is because they've seen what FSL have in the pipeline at that conference presentation, and realised they'll have to do a bit more to their Airbus 320 if it is to stack up in any meaningful way, if you want my guess. n

 

And on the subject of delays, unless the Black Box A320 gets released tomorrow, (31st of May), it will be overdue too, since that's the release date shown on its promo video.

May I ask, whats the incentive with pre ordering? Its a downloadble product so you are not going miss out.

 

If they are giving a nice discount, then, fine. Do they take the money when you pre order or when it comes out?

Noooo i mean it didn't plunge into the grown when it landed. I have watch videos on youtube about these types of landing an most of the times the aircraft lands on its belly the landed gear don't manage to hold up . For example a 767 that had to make a similer landing to this one . The landing gears didn't hold up so plunge into the grown an some passenger got injured . By the way am not trying to compare the A320 with the 767 i know the 767 weight more than the A320. The only thing i can say that most boeing planes just plunge into the ground .
