MD-80 Project Update

Recommended Posts

It´s an absolute beauty!

 

Hope it is as good as it looks - systems vice. Took the old Maddog 2010 for a spin in FSX the other day, and was glad to hear Bettys voice and the stabilizer "drrrrrrdt" sound - even if all the recordings are 22khz sample rate and mono;) Too bad something has happened to the dog in my FSX-install - the VC graphics started acting quite freaky (just a texture mess) after takeoff, so had to abort the flight - after an hour setting everything up etc. Sad, butu still - it´s brillint.


Best regards,

Kristoffer Løkke-Sørensen

Looks good, but is this a "golden oldie" or will it have FMC with full nav data support?

I believe it has nav-data support. If you'd look on the webpage, there's an FMC with waypoints, etc.

Will there be a single cue FD option?  That's what the ones I flew had.

That website is just so hard to go to.  Those latest exterior shots have me drooling with that beat up Delta livery.
