P3D Versions Only: CS L1011, 727 and 737 Base - how is it?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

For those who ordered any of the P3D versions of L1011, 727 or 737 - could you share your quick feedback on installation and quick performance of the birds.

 

Have like close to 22 hours before the sale goes away.  Your insights will very beneficial.

 

Thanks,

And if anyone who had previous experience with the 727 in FSX is there much in the line of improvements or are we just paying for an P3D V3 Installer of which I have already read may have issues?

Interested in knowing about the 727 since i am on the same wagon - Got it for FSX, is it worth a second purchase?

Quick feedback for 737: Installed to P3DV3.1, it offered either 2.5 or 3. as I have both. No problems.

 

Launched the AA livery at PAJN and took it around the block. 'Seems' much simpler than say their L1011. I'd almost call this a 'lite' systems aircraft. It hand flew very well, excellent VC, exterior, and wing views I thought. Very stable on approach and landing, ground handled OK, good sounds, comes with default GPS. Performance was great. For $11 US I'm pleased with it...I need more hours.

Also, it's seems to be not so GoFlight MCP friendly.

 

Hope that helps a bit!

 

cheers,

Greg

I've loved the L1011 in P3D because it performs extremely well on my system, it is so easy on FPS.

Another vote for the L1011.  Running it in V3.1, installed with no issues.  Runs with no issues (only flew for 45 mins).  

Runs very smoothly.

Overall very satisfied with this 9.99 purchase.

Just bought the L1011 only.  Will see how this bird performs after 4pm.

You're just paying for a P3D installer. In fact, the FSX versions generally worked fine in P3D until CS issued updates that deliberately stopped them functioning in P3D, to force customers to repurchase.

 

And before any would be lawyer jumps up and down on me with EULA stuff, I'm not condoning the above, just using the point to highlight how there is little difference between CS's FSX and P3D products.

 

For those interested in the L1011, JustFlight's Pro version offers a lot more system depth and includes an FMS, although obviously it costs a lot more until the CS sale ends today.

It surely is...

 

I've purchased the 777 (ugh), the L1011 for FSX and now the 737 (P3D). The T7 is out the window. I like the L1011 but in FSX:SE it's a resource hog and I could not make it work in P3D. Three flights with the 737 and it's running/flying wonderfully in P3D3.1. Pondering the 727 now...

CS 737-200 P3D version a delight. It's my go to plane when I need a break from PMDG and Aerosoft programming. Tons of liveries available, Alex Faber's paints are masterful.

I love the CS 727. Had no issues installing it in P3D and have had no issues flying it.

Yep got this one too with the L1011.  Both are base packages.

Thank You for mentioning JustFlights L1011.  I never knew they made complex birds.  I read about it on JustFlight's page and it looks very impressive.

Steve, Lee and Jesse, thank you. Great feedback. Just what I wanted to read after having bought the 7373-200 P3D and the L-1011 P3D(already had their FSX version which I prefer to the also-bought JF version)

Just purchased the 727 and 1011. Je sus, the 727's pitch trim is impossible to control as it used to be. Am i doing something wrong, or is it just mega-hyper-turbo-sensitive and won't stay in place?

Bought the 1011 last night against my better judgment. I wasn't aware a heavy tri-jet could nose dive at ~ -8000 ft/min and still lose airspeed when the spoilers are extended...

Is that how 727 is in real life?

Does that mean I burned 9 euros ($11 bucks)

Just picked up the 737-200.

Can anyone tell me if the expansions (ADV and F/Combi) are 9.99 normal price....after the 24 hour sale?

Dont want to pick them up yet until I've evaluated the base pack...but don't want to spend more than 9.99 for them either, hehe.

I used the Wayback Machine website to go back to various past dates on Captain Sim's site.  It appears the expansions are normally discounted to 9.99 every day.

Steve, in the sale the Combo is listed at €14.99 reduced to €9.99, whereas the ADV is listed at €9.99. Hope that helps.

Been waiting for this sale, picked up the P3D L-1011, 737, and 727....  All installed properly to v3.1 and load, great looking models with tons of great animations, nice looking cockpits etc... can't comment on flight model as simply took each around the pattern once before heading back to work, but seemed fine at first glance for $11!

 

Checked out expansions, looks like the 727 expansions are on sale (normally $22), but most others are normally $11 anyway.  Tempted to pick up the 727-200 pack while on sale.

 

Did have a weird bug with the 737 that the Attitude Indicator not working, will have to investigate tonight.  Otherwise no obvious issues I could find.

I enjoy the CS L1011 and 727, 727 even more so ...

 

CS 727

 

CS 727 KEGE - oops

 

L1011 4:25 min mark

 

FPS is very good on both aircraft.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Just loaded up the 727, the interior really has ugly textures - it really looks dated.  Haven't flown in it yet, just initial impression

 

The L1011 looks real nice

 

Will test the 737 soon

Thanks guys,

I think I'll wait to see what I think of the base model.  It'll just be an extra 5 euro if I want to pick up the expansions after the sale.  And they noted that the repaints work on all -200 models....that is what I was looking for.  :smile:

Got 45 mins to change my mind...Lol
