We wished for a Tristar...such a shame about the response!

Recommended Posts

Quote from Pilots GMBH (http://www.l1011tristar.com/)March 17th: We are working. Currently on the box. Check here ... Who works on the box, if he does not intend to release the product? So please stay tuned. I will not say a date. But it will be really soon. (Compared to how long the project took so far.) Models are gold. Completely new animations have been implemented. Gauges are in final testing. FM is currently being tuned to Gauges. Manual needs some translation. Volunteers neededI think they read this forum ;)

You're the second person to recommend the Clipper. I might just have to spend the money and get it :).Eric

The EMB-120? It's coming along well I guess, though my part in the development is near completion as I hand the model to Steve A. for fitting of interior details and such...Once it's done with I'll probably start easing my way back into FS with a few 727 variants or maybe something else...at this point I'm pretty open.On an earlier subject...One of the joys of being apathetic is I don't have the problem other developers have with pointing out faults. I'm so close to leaving FS anyway, I just don't care. It's pretty awesome, actually... :+

Hi Al,I agree with your comment about Perfect Flight. Because I was unexperienced and wanted to buy every commercial aircraft add-on available for FS2004 (I had an occasional access to the internet and I discovered there are any commercial add-on's for FS after 3 years of flightsimming with default and freeware aircraft - well, some of them are pretty nice though) and I was hungry for more and more aircraft with FMC's, beautiful panels etc. So I bought PF's "Fly The B717" because I wanted to add a piece into my collection of Boeings where were PMDG 737 and VMAX RFP 747 at that moment. Well, I was pretty shocked when I installed it and loaded the aircraft in the FS. I was used for the top quality of the above mentioned products and now this #@$%! It was like a hit into my face. I would think that might be a decent (not superb though, like things from SGA or Vistaliners) freeware add-on! Their products are overpriced and now I saw the screenshots and the price of 24 EURO! Wheew. Abacus makes the similar quality but they charge 10 USD only and that seems ok to me.Well, I'm pretty sure I won't buy anything from Perfect Flight in the nearest future and thank you for the link to the Pilot's L-1011. I use the beautiful Mike Stone's model too but I haven't found any really good freeware panel for it and the screenshots at Pilot's page look so fantastic!

ok, tried to stay out of it, but here goes. It's great for a $9.95 cheapie, it is. It's for the kids that play this game. So let's not waste out time. This is not where their audience is. It's where you drop your kids off. Good luck to them. rgds,billg

I don't know. It sounds affected. 'Whilst' is archiac, after all. But maybe that's point - maybe Paul wanted to sound like some soggy dandy. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it happens. What do you think?

This is a useful post for a guy like me as I usually don't know all the details about the planes I consider buying. I generally buy without reservation any product made by Dreamfleet, although by FS18 Lou will be getting on in years and Paul's JD use may affect things by then, lol!I passed on the Concorde by PSS because I just don't have time to learn to fly evey complex plane that is released but I sure wish I had the time, but I've got the airbus and the Dash 8. I have several FSD products and the quality there is reliable. Buying the DC-3 from MAAM is a no brainer.The Flight1 Archer is a nice package. Did you make that one too Lou?My last splurge was to get the PFC jetliner yoke and rudder pedals with a throttle quadrant. Lou's hardware reviews on the other site were very helpful in decided on these fine products. Those of us who have been around for awhile in this hobby know where to find quality add ons and we know who are the ones who cut corners and who are the ones who have a history of 'borrowing' other people's hard work.So you guys always steer folks like me in the right direction when it comes to pointing out the planes not to buy!

Oh come on dont be shy, I think the guy you tried to make look a fool, just blew you out of the water..I guess a sorry would be nice.There is just too much of the old "Are you a RW Pilot?" in this forum, I guess to most of us who are not, FDE's are subjective, suffice it to say, when someone questions FDE's before the usual"Are you a RW Pilot? what the #### do you know", how about asking them why they think its so, in a less sarcastic manner.Now thats SmellyJasonJason

>>>Please Reply Wolfgang........ Starting with sorry.. Oh come on>dont be shy, I think the guy you tried to make look a fool,>just blew you out of the water..>A couple of items to go over here. The "poster" is new with only a few previous postings, and no credentials or history was provided with the "mini review". I might have thought the same thing as Wolfgang. Half the time, I don't know if someone is talking about flying a real plane or a simulated one. Sometimes I really don't know if someome is a real life commercial captain, or a virtual reality VA pilot. But now that credentials are stated to support the reply, All is Well!L.Adamson

While I am not a TriStar pilot I am an older aerospace engineer currently working for Lockheed Martin. I was also on the development team for the DC-10 and worked as a liaison engineering pilot for McDonnel-Douglas. So I can assure you that both the DC-10/MD-10/MD-11 and L-1011 flew superbly, with very well harmonized controls and precise controlability that could easily make you forget how massive they were. The flight models of some recent commercial products, such as the Level-D 767, PMDG 737, and Flight1 ATR42-500 feel "realistic" to me. The Perfect Flight L-1011 flight model just flat out behaves improperly, in my humble opinion.:-lol Wolfgang, you have a little egg on your right sleeve.

That "introductory" offer was never rescinded so the "temporary" price is still current (or was a year ago when I bought it).
