Thats great! I like that PMDG started sharing some information of how they develop their products as have been requested quite a few times by the community, hopefully they will consider doing some kind of "behind the scenes" video at some point.

 

Also! Rob should update his avatar on avsim he looks quite older than the current one *ducks*

That vest makes him look classier than the pilot's hat.

No. That information would be stickeyed here if it were PMDG-official.

That avatar picture was taken a little earlier this year, actually (Sept, I think, at the Udvar Hazy Smithsonian outing).

 

Don't let the glasses fool you. Plus, I believe this was late at night, as the sims are used for other training during normal business hours.

 

 

 


Thanks, Kyle!

 

Welcome.

Really looking forward to the first previews...no not the release just the previews.  :lol:

Be nice if they updated their AVSIM PMDG forum...

 

I had a feeling someone would drag a negative angle into this. I debated not even mentioning it for that purpose.

 

In their defense, it wasn't quite worthy of the time it takes to write up a full post here, upload pictures, and then link to all of them. With Facebook that whole process is actually remarkably quick.

There's actually a faster way of knowing how a 744 and it's systems work, and without having to spend fortunes in LevelD sims - Aerowinx PSX :-)

He flies like someone who's type rated on the thing  :P

 

 

 


Aerowinx PSX

 

It's going to be interesting to compare the two when PMDG's 744 is out.

Kyle, I made a fair point. Otherwise, there's little use in having this forum.

 

I see what you were getting at, but my point was that it wasn't even directly an update about the product. It's related because it's doing a little research, but it's not directly an update, so I'm not surprised time wasn't spent on uploading and posting pictures here.

 

And there are several other reasons to have a forum like this. It's here as a way for people to get support from the community. That's the forum's main point, in fact.

It explicitly states they were looking for how the aircraft handles not the systems side, i imagine that they will have technical documents and perhaps some form of assistance from Boeing regarding the systems.

Funny how Kyle's 'minor' update creates so many posts!

 

Yep, including mine and yours!

But I love my T7 - and I love my Queen - Isn't that a bit like bigamy?

 

Three things to keep in mind when asking for updates from PMDG:

  1. Don't ask for things you can't have - like a full head of hair or a 25 year old mistress;
  2. Don't ask for things you can't afford - like a Bugoti Veron or a 25 year old mistress;
  3. Dont' ask for things that might kill you - like a 25 year old mistress!

Seriously though, the 744v2 is definitely on my F_it list. What, you might ask is an F_It list? It's kind of like your bucket list but with a dose of reality. Like: I've always wanted to jump out of a perfectly good airplane so F_It, I'm gonna sign up for those sky diving lessons. Or: I know I can't afford that sleek new Harley, but F_It, I gonna buy it anyhow. That's my F_It list. For those of you who aren't scatologically impaired, you  can fill in the blanks.

The way I see it is you've put a lot of money and labor into a woman for the last 45 years. Then a sleek, agile 20 year old walks by and you're lost in the moment.
