Thank you, yes - I've seen this too.

 

It's better than nothing, however it does fall short of a "slick solution" when compared to the Airbus or Dash8.

 

I still hope that PMDG can find it in their schedule of priorities to offer this as part of their software eco-system.

 

Would be happy to pay for the feature.

Any feedback on this would be great! If it does do what it promises it is well worth the price tag.

I'm interested as well. Can't find much on YouTube (which is strange)

I'm not sure either of what it is worth. I've had a look at their website and there is a manual but it seems very limited in the end : http://www.desk-pilot.com/Download/DP_Shared_Cockpit_Crew_Manual.pdf

 

Not too sure it applies to pro version or not, the website does not mention the doc for PRO version. From what I understood it also require to use the FSX Multiplayer. I guess we'll see some review at some point to really know what it is doing or not :)

I've flown it a few times and I have to say it makes the whole experience much more enjoyable. The synchronisation in the payware version is much better than the free version that you can download from their website. A twitch stream rip I made a while ago (using the free version) shows it in action on VATSIM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONTmBciFvbU 

 

Another shows the same but in the payware version flying the 777: https://www.twitch.tv/andyeef/v/56337165

 

Some problems arise during that flight with the FMC synchronisation since we both had different nav cycles installed, and the FO hadn't got the desk pilot FMC panel installed properly. Otherwise it works fine. A thing I really like when doing flights in the payware version is you can switch from pilot flying to pilot monitoring really easily, which makes it quite handy in long haul flights or on VATSIM in a busy area.
