Thanks for the heads-up!

 

Their 737 originals and Milviz's, which one is better? Also how's the L-1011? I read she flies beautifully in real life...

I would say the Milviz is slightly better because it has a FMC. However, I am having troubles lately with that unit. Taking this into account, I would say that both are fairly similar. The CS has more variants (100 and 200), but the Milviz 200 has a very nice configuration tool to set up the plane in many different ways (pax/cargo/combi, old-style or modern FMC, ...). However, for 10 Euro I will definitely re-purchase the CS 737 for P3D, even though I already got the Milviz for P3D.

 

The CS L-1011 is a great product, the VC is amazingly detailed. The only drawback is that the manual does not include an amplified checklist. However, I found one for the real plane on the web and was amazed that CS has virtually everything modeled. I can only compare it to the original JustFlight model (not the professional version), but then the CS model is far superior with respect to system depth.

Thanks for the heads-up, Alan. Been waiting for the L-1011 upgrade to the P3D version for ages. Beats the EUR30.

Some of which does not work(see another thread, reply from MilViz) as it was not intended to be implemented. The VNAV part of it does not work.

 

 

The CS L-1011 is a great product,

And better than the Just Flight version which I also bought.Worth getting.

Thanks for pointing this out, Rick. My problems are related to the issue that LNAV is not captured. There is some information on it on the Milviz forum.

I've always avoided CS because of many bad comments I've read about support, but these prices are tempting. How good are their offerings, though? How well does the 757, for example, stack up against the Quality Wings version, or the 777 against PMDG's equivalent?

Neither stack up against the QW or the PMDG, and I have both CS versions, as well as the QW & PMDG.

It works, it's the one i use because LVLD just doesn't cut it anymore.

 

Hi Nuno,

 

Does the speed and heading knob continue to rotate after they are turned using the mouse?  That is one thing that irritated me about CS, they never did fix some of the bugs that people reported.  They make beautiful models but the programming is lacking in some areas.

Yes, if you do it in a certain way, it'll keep spinning.

 

These minor bugs do irritate, but right now on P3D and Windows 8, it's all i have unfortunately.

I was planning on getting the L1011 and 737 for P3D, but if the 767 does indeed work in P3Dv3.1, i'll probably pick that up too given we have no other 767 in p3d...

I just went to check on the 767 and, for me, it is still showing €39.99.  Am I missing something?

Thanks for the feedback, Nuno! Does the load manager which comes with the aircraft (there is one, right?) also work in Prepar3d v3?

 

Given the fact that there will be no new 767 in the near future, I guess I will give it a try. I only hope that they did not put in some kind of FSX lock into the newer installers so that you can't install it in Prepar3d anymore. But for 10 Euros I can take that risk...

 I can vouch for both the L-1011 and the 707. Excellent, great fun to fly.

Has Captain Sim introduced new modern panel for C-130J Hurricane Hunters? My Captain Sims C-130 X Experience package have two original panels.   I saw on tv that C-130J Hurricane Hunters have modern airline type panels.
