Lago MD80 Series Released !!

Recommended Posts

Guest United

My very first impressions of Lago's new MD80:1. $45.00 US, not inexpensive2. Installs with two different models, one with and one without a VC. Lago says they are still working on the VC for the one without.3. It seems that besides the installed liveries, JetCity will be handling sales of pending liveries, apparently a whole series from the MD80/81 to MD90. I am not sure however, it's kinda confusing on who is going to sell what.4. The 2D panel looks good to me, maybe not great, say like PMDG, but that's a real subjective call on my part. 5. Externally, looks fabulous6. Sounds really good too.7. I even started it cold, kinda like the old Flight1 DC9 only a whole lot easier as long as you know to move the fuel levers forward on the throttle panel.7. ? about ease of use of FMC, seems that it will not interface with FS9 flight plans, that you must enter manually, but I haven't got that far.I also have looked at that odd 2D panel only site for the MD80, no way I'm getting into that Panelwithoutaplane thing for now.Randy Jura, KPDX

So you have to pay for extra liveries? That sucks.I will think about getting this plane. I do like the SGA MD-80's, but I don't really like the panel Im using plus there are liveries I would like to have that no one seems to want to paint.

Hi,The VC looks nice but kills the framerates. In 2D I have about 20/24 frates, in VC about 8/10 when standing on the ground.(P4 2.8 / 9800 Pro)Maybe it's bad only on my system, I dunno, but the VC seems to hit the frates enormouslyNevertheless I very pleasantly surpriced by the quality of the panel, especially regarding the track record of LAGO last year.There are a few glitches but so far they are minor.

Wow that's terrible about the VC framerates... Hopefully Lago will release a tool to adjust the gauge refresh rates...

Boy, I just love the MD80. With the current trend of ultra high quality packages, I'm a bit afraid to take the jump. I've been flying this DF 727 and I'm amazed at $35 US. I just don't think I'll be happy with much less quality, especially for more $$$.Knowing me, I'll buy it anyway.

I'd like to know how this MD80 compares to the MDMAX Super 80 in terms of systems fidelity.

If you buy it don't look for the manuals as they won't be out till tomorrow hopefully per the Lago forums.I bought the plane and installed and could not find any manuals. Jeffg

Looks pretty interesting. Think I might wait though. I am having a blast with the DF727 and I am expecting the LvlD 767 out someday and I am sure that will occupy quite a bit of time. Maybe then they will have all models and the VC added. Anyway not putting them down but think I have my flying filled for some time to come.

SteveHow,Hope you got the EFIS to work but if not, the switches are located just to the right of the gauges.Jim

Just bought the Lago MadDog and it's a very nice aircraft. I get great framerates in the VC as well. One problem I have is all the VC textures don't seem to be present. There is no real night lighting to speak of as well. These two things I hope Lago will address in short order.Your going to love the sounds and FDE. This one will be a classic for sure...

Yes! I was a fan of the IK Dc-9 but it was never as good in FS9 as was in Fs2002 - now there is a new contender. Sounds like its a good `un. I`ll just wait for a couple of weeks and see if any major issues come to the surface.I can feel the Mrs` credit card warming up already....CheersLungs
