I have their three-holer and never fly it. Waste of money. The flight model doesn't do it for me. The plane is very hard to hand fly - not like the DF727 or the 777 sim in Denver. It doesn't want to go where you point it. It way over-corrects for intertia making it almost impossible to line up. The 707 flight model felt very much the same way when I tried the landing challenge at the Denver AVSIM conference. Plane is all over the map - never really going where you want it. I'll stick to the DF and PMDG products for my heavies.

They need a patch for the 707 before I will ever consider another captainsim aircraft.RH

You have to recognize they're great at photorealistic panels, then again, photorealistic panels aren't exactly challenging to do if you have the right materials. Let's see how this goes... The graphical aspect looks incredible, but if it's not on par with LDS (at the very least) it's not worth one penny (that is, assuming it even gets released).Daniel P.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/ng_driver.jpgMember of SJU Photography.

I think visually the CaptainSim model might look better than LDS's offering... Visuals are not what makes us happy in the long run unless you like sitting on the flight line taking screenshots. The FDE seems to always be a problem with CS. I don't care how a plane looks (well yes I do), if it flies like an F14 or a Lancair and it's supposed to be a 767, we have a problem. The CS727 was awesome to look at, the VC was incredible but the FDE was far from realistic (as was the autopilot). CS will do a great job visually but the FDE, Sounds and many other realistic features are another story. Furthermore CaptianSim won't fix issues customers report. If this bird has an unrealistic FDE you can rest assured that's how it will stay for the most part.One main thing that bothers me is CaptainSim's choice in doing a 767 now. Why not do the 757 series and side track going head to head with a fellow developer? I hate to see this kind of crap. Everyone should know LDS is the kings of this arena for the simple fact there one of two teams that started this whole realistic movement in FS design in the first place (DreamFleet being the other one). LDS is the old Wilco team that brought us the original PIC767. Why go up against a team like that??? Like I said we need 757s, 777s, DC10s, A320s, etc... It

>I'll pass until they get their support forums back online.>Seems they don't care about their past customers, their forums>have been offline for so long now, its a joke.>A little bit off topic but since when has not having a public forum meant that a company does not care about their customers or that it is a joke? I have bought hardware / software products from several companies and email support has always worked without a problem.If I was to set up a business in FS addons I might easily make the same decision. If you look at the support forums of the most popular addon aircraft makers, you'll see that most the posts are crap. Whining, complaining and demanding a functional seat height adjustment because the real plane has one. Or asking for the 1000000th time how to install the default GPS instead of the FMC.
