Wanting to purchase new fsx plane

Recommended Posts

I have been debating on a new plane to purchase to add to my virtual hanger. I wanted to get some insight from the community.

 

Price is no issue, i am just looking for a quality aircraft.

I am interested in commercial aircraft not really GA.

Been debating between Just Flights 146-200 Jetliner or Wilco's NEXTGEN CRJ, not restricted to either of those aircraft. If there is one you see that i don't have and must own let me know

 

 

Aircraft i own are:

PMDG 737 744 747-8 MD-11 J41

Beechcraft Duke Turbine

Carenado C90B king Air

Cessna 441

 

 

 

Thanks!

How do you feel about taking on a new challenge? Learn how to fly a good quality helicopter.. Its more of a cult following but it is well known that the dodosim 206 is the pinnacle of helicopter simulation. You even have the ability to turn the difficulty up or down to work on certain aspects of flying the aircraft.

How do you feel about military jets? There are several great aircraft.. razbam, vertical reality simulations, iris and milviz all have exceptional models. My current favorites are the vrs superbug and the razbam t-2 buckeye.

You have a very good collection but lacking a 757 or 767. You do need a regional jet also. Please , if you going with the two you are considering, make it the 146 or you may have a big disappointment.

i have the VRS superbug, i love that jet its so much fun to fly. Ya i have been eyeballing the Airbus X Extended.

 

As for the 757 or 767, I was going to get the PMDG 777 When it comes out to kinda take care of that size of jet.

I would suggest the Feelthere CRJ v2.0 (which may be the same as the Wilco) because of the quality of the systems and excellent appearance. In my opinion, they are the closest to PMDG quality you will find for a light jet.

I may think the Airbus extended a good option. Those shots from Aerosoft's forum are stunning.

I was doing research on the Feelthere CRJ v2.0 and it appears that its actually wilco, however the flight dynamics seem to be awful from the you tube videos i have seen.

You may want to gander through this thread before comparing it to PMDG quality.

Notice: I said CLOSEST, not IS.

 

Read it again dude. If theres another light jet addon that is as CLOSE to a PMDG quality aircraft, please let me know so I can look into it.

I'd get the LevelD 767. While graphically dated, one of the better big carrier's out there. Also has navigraph support.

I may have mentioned the wrong addon, perhaps it's the ERJ v2.0 that I am thinking of.

 

I'm on travel, otherwise I would check. I know for certain Wilco had nothing to do with it, it was only Feelthere.

Yeah then it was likely ERJ, that CRJ which has horrible flight dynamics isn't made by Feelthere although for some reason they do sell it through their site...

I don't see a corporate jet in your hangar. How about the Eaglesoft Citation X 2.0? It's pretty complex but a lot of fun to fly and the FMS is pretty slick once you figure it out.

I've been considering the Eagelsoft 2.0 too for about 2 months but feel that it looks a bit fake on the exterior and some of the VC. Is that true or is it just me. If it was around 40.00 I would have bought it regardless. does it ever go on sale?

I was thinking about the citation as well. But same concerns as Phillip.

 

 

I have been really enjoying what i have seen from Flight1 ATR. I am a fan of turbo props, nothing can beat that sound of engine start up.

I've seen a few different Citation X's from afar so can't say definitively whether its fake or not. It looks pretty close those I've seen in pictures though. What I can tell you is that it takes a little work to get it set up and to learn the FMS but its a ton of fun to fly.

 

There are a couple of freeware turboprops that are pretty good. Mario Noriega's Piaggio P-180 is nice as is the Basler BT-67 at http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/content.php?108-Copyright&fid=166898
