how's the maddog vc gauge lighting?

Recommended Posts

Thinking of buying the plane for the vc and integration of ms gps vs fmc but haven't seen pics of the vc at night which could ruin it for me if done badly.I wish they did a dc9 instead...

Are you talking about Lago's Maddog? If so, the entire vc is of crappy quality, just as the external model. An absolute MUST NOT BUY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES addon. Lago's rubbish does come with the much better Jetcity models, but, alas, those don't have a vc yet.Or are you (hopefully) talking about some other rendition of the MD80?ricardo

It comes with a discount voucher for the entire JetCity MD 80 collection, which when used it costs like $15 for the whole collection MD81-88, again without a VC, but superb models.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/110588.jpgYes The default VC is not that good, But the panel is a very true rendition of flying the Mad Dog, and its a dream. I would not say that its a "MUST NOT BUY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES" as I think thats quite a lame thing to say if your just refering to it because of the VC quailty. When all said the VC isnt as good as it could of been, but the 2D panels is nice.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/110589.jpgAnd yes the service pack realy takes it up a level.Jason

Thank you for this more in-depth reply, perhaps a few more vc shots will convince me to get or to leave it, 2d panels are history for me since the trackir..no offence

Jason,Does it have a working FMC? If so, is it fully implemented? What's the thing you like about this product the most? What's the least? Thank you in advance. Dave Vega

"Are you talking about Lago's Maddog? If so, the entire vc is of crappy quality, just as the external model. An absolute MUST NOT BUY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES addon. Lago's rubbish does come with the much better Jetcity models"Am I getting really fed up with this kind of response on Avsim. The question was a reasonable one asking for a reasonable reply...if the plane is 'rubbish' then this reply is even more so. It provides nothing useful in terms of information, no one , but no one is any the wiser after it. If you are going to critiscise then why don't you justify your critiscism with some reasonable qualifications. "Lago's rubbish" is the response of a lazy mind, if there is a mind present at all. There are some on this forum who are just waiting to pounce with gaumless, destructive, brain dead responses about certain products, and it's not difficult to predict which posts will attract these....
