Airbus A400M Preview (FSX/Prepar3D)

Recommended Posts

Aviable here, I think it is the same aircraft. Looks very promising!

Thanks for that! I read through the preview a little too quickly and didn't realise it'd already been released. That is indeed the same aircraft.

That external model and VC are absolutely gorgeous.

 

I might pick it up soon but I'd be interested in any reviews first.

and yes, Carenado are taking the...p, recently!

Anyone else notice that in the video the number three engine is supposedly on fire then shutdown, but when the external view is shown from the rear of the aircraft the number two engine is actually shut down? The next view in the cockpit shows the number three engine. Could just be bad editing because the number three engine in the initial shot was on fire. Man that sounds confusing lol.

Okay - picked it up. Anyone else notice graphic artifacts when panning around the VC (only happens with this aircraft)?

I wish they would do a C-17 or better yet a C-141

Copilot: Captain have you ever flown a 777 before?

Captain:Nope,but we got a strong tail wind and the bar in Hong Kong stays open till 5am, so lets kick the tires, light the fires and, get the hell outta here.

I'm interested in this one too. Saw a real one doing circuits at Blackpool EGNH one evening this week - like a C130 on steroids!

I bought it but download was corrupted. I ignored this error and tried to install. When I select the a400 aircraft I get fatal error and fsx crashes. It seems there is a problem with a dds file. Redox loading now and I'll try again. I expect no support on this purchase so i took a chance. More to come.

So I got it installed but when I select the aircraft I get a Fatal Error and FSX crashes.  The faulting module is panels.dll  I emailed the publisher and will have to wait to see if I get an answer.  So no opinion so far on this.  I'm wondering if the problem is because I don't have acceleration installed, just have SP2
