I'm hoping for a new 767+

 

Looking at the airspeed indicator ......... I think you'd better bring down that expectation just a tad ...........unless there was a clue within the clue .........Hmmmmmmmmmm

Great news, always wanted to have a proper 757 / 767 with both good looks and realistic systems / flight dynamics.

Looking forward to seeing what plane it is.  Will be getting both FS9 and FSX versions.  Maybe 757 or 747?

It's a 767. Listen to the engines.

 

AT LAST!

 

LevelD is old and CS is buggy. Welcome!

 

EDIT: Nah, it's a 747. I just looked at the IAS in detail, plus the 747 has the new style ND and the 767 doesn't.

 

Fail, PMDG is doing a 747 as well and it'll be (as usual) much better. BAH!

I bet all the people flying an iFly 737 with a cockpit builder edition would like to disagree. Try to use a PMDG 747 even with a goflight...you can't(at least not anymore) let alone with an overhead panel or anything....People who do this like systems better than VC eyecandy as the VC is never even used.  I'm guessing that whatever it is they build will be built from the ground up with pit builders in mind...

Yeah i guess you're right Steve. They know their market so that's probably why they went 747.

Why are they always developing aircraft that PMDG are currently doing?  Why not do something that we can all get behind like a 767 or even better a 757?  From my point of view i won't buy the iFly 747 i'll wait for the PMDG release, i would buy a 767/757 at release.

That would be 744?

 

EDIT: Apparently, we agree it is 744. They are very brave to compete with PMDG with both 737 and 747. My respect!

Yeah but don´t forget, that PMDG only does for FSX/P3D.

Ifly has the FS9 User too...

 

But I hope, it will not the 747...

I don't have any iFly products but the 737 was a real possibilty for me. Unfortunately, I heard it took a lot of juice to run it. Has anyone used it with P3D v2.4 and can share their thoughts on performance?

Mario,

            The iFly 737 for P3D was very hard on frames for me. At $79 USD I had to opt for the refund. Some others reported better performance.

Thanks Mike. I'm anxious to see what this mystery product will be like, performance-wise. But from what I've read, iFly is a quality developer so I will watch this closely.

Regardless of aircraft I just hope Flight1's currently policy changes to allow usage in all three platforms without having to pay full price for each!

 

For the PMDG flyers out there ... how come with their supposed closeness to Boeing, long gestation and beta periods and dedication to quality; patches are still required shortly after release and service packs issued annually it seems?  Well it IS difficult to get it right and iFly have to jump the same hurdles and with the 737NG they proved they can be competitive.  They beat the NGX to market and now it appears history will repeat, with a different aircraft.  Sign me up!

Oh well, I was hoping someone would finally make a proper 757 & 767 that looks good, has a lot of system depth and isn't vaporware. 

 

If it's a 747 then good for FS9 users at least, perhaps it will be also less resource demanding for FSX users than the upcoming 747 of PMDG.

Ifly 737 hit the fps only after the update so if you didn't have any issues just go back to the initial install, easier on the fps!

PMDG's relationship with Boeing has nothing at all to do with the development process for a flight sim add on.  It's baffling why somebody who has been a member of this forum for 7 years asks this, are you being sarcastic?  Doesn't matter I'll bite:

  • Different PC configurations (i.e. different hardware / software)
  • Different flight sim configurations (i.e. different add ons and settings)
  • Simmers using the product differently to the Beta testers / developers
  • Adding additional features.
  • Core updates to system damage something within the product (i.e. something like a DX update)

This list isn't really exhaustive.

 

I can't think of a single add on that hasn't needed a patch, to turn your statement on it's head, i believe that PMDG support their products well, hence they respond to issues raised by the community.

I am very happy with the 747 Cargo version from PMDG, I don't really like the shape of the 747-400 passenger version. If there is an 747-800i included I will snap it up right away+

 

I can't find any announcement on the website, so were are you guys getting your information from? The newest news there is years old, for Christ's sake:(

That audio sounds like a 767 to me.   The takeoff sounds do not sound like 757.  

IMHO
