DC-6 and X-Plane GNS430

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I'm a Mac OS user, so I'm waiting for the Mac release.

But I'm wondering: why is there the X-Plane GNS430? Isn't it an anachronism?

I guess the immersion could be challenged using this modern GPS unit in this old bird.

They modeled it after a actual aircraft that is still flying, so it has all the same niggles and updates as the real thing, including the GPS and mismarked placards.

Many old propliners which are still flying today have been updated with modern radios - pretty much a necessity to fly in today's airspace.

 

The upgrades are usually typical GA Bendix-King or Garmin kit, often wedged in to any available free space in, on, or under the panel, as is the case in the R/W DC-6 that PMDG modeled.
