Dang I just bought the L1011 because I figured they weren't having a sale.

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.

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.

 

 

I would say the Milviz is slightly better because it has a FMC

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.
