Does anyone know if it has a quality fms? With navigraph support etc? And VNAV? I could use a nice jet in XP with all that

Lol are you joking? The FF 757 and 767 have some of the best FMC's out there.

Just about finished with a profile for my Goflight EFIS and MCPPro with the older version, let's hope the datarefs didn't change too drastically. I put a heck of a lot of time into getting it to this point.

 

FMC is great Ryan, no worries there it's a quality plane.

Errm, youknow that the 757 was the last plane that Philipp was making full time for Flightfactor,before he started at Laminar. He was always the FMS specialist since his  CRJ 200.

You mean since the JRollon CRJ ;)

Nope I'm not.  I'm not very familiar with airliners in XP10!  I'm a GA guy.

The FF767 and soon the 757 have more features than the IXEG 733 at the moment BUT there are some items that need serious polish. The 767 will undergo a complete rebuild of the VNAV logic in the future, so keep an eye out for that.

 

The IXEG 733 patch 1.1 is supposedly around the corner so expect additional features here as well.

All these products support full Navigraph and Aerosoft NavDataPro updates and databases.

 

Great choices to have from these small developers who are raising the bar of their products and competing well.

I sat down with fcoms tripping various systems in the ixeg 737 and 767 and almost all are modelled if not all and mostly correctly , but vnav logic and fmc are somewhat basic in both cases (more basic in the ixeg) however both will recieve updates in the future ?

 

And in no way they are non flyable :)

you know to add to the above post i could never say the VNAV is 'basic' in any of the above products, as i have no clue how much hardwork went into its development and how coding was done, but FMC on the IXEG is somewhat incomplete and that was mentioned before launch and on the 767 its kind basic

i remind, both fun to fly :D

kind regards

So the 757 would be most functional for now?

 

Maybe though I imagine going forward both the 757 and 767 will be basically the same as far as systems depth is concerned.

Not sure what "FCOM" were you looking into, but remeber that both 767/757 have an older version of FMS recreated. It's not a modern one, so obviously there are things missing from the usual FMS unit you would see in today's 767s.

 

However they are not "basic" in the slightest.

The fcom they supplied with their addon...On their 767 popup checklist it says check rnp values and their is no mention of rnp on the 767 fmc .so that's either basic or not modelled or the real 767 old one or whatever had no rnp capability...

 

In any case no body defines basic or complex

As long as they have sids and stars and fly us from point a to b I guess ??

 

It's fun to fly (until vnav puts you in a 6000ft descent)

RNP is meaningless in a sim, everything will have the best RNP always, for ever. How would you define complex?

Well offcourse it's meaningless :) but why mention it in their checklist and make us search for it only to see it not be there !

 

If they have said that it should be there .it should be there ..

Though they did mention in their manual only 90 percent of the systems are modelled and this could be the feature that is not.

 

With your argument. Even the fmc is useless . It's a sim .. we have unlimited fuel . We are eventually going to get thru our way points :P no matter how !so why an fmc ?

 

As I have already mentioned above that No one defines complex (that includes me).some find the feature which gives us the ability of dialing in way points complex and others might define other aspects of the fmc comp :)

The included manuals where provided by Boeing so some of the stuff in there isn't simulated. It's usually noted but some of it is not. If you look in the ipad menu you will see there is still a good amount of things that are yet to be finished, RNP might be one of these. Not sure what you mean with your second point.

maybe so , but its okay really its just a 60ish $  sim so we cant expect everything to be there :)

 

well, if by second point you mean the definition of complexity part..... what i am trying to say is that we cant really state anything to be complex ,simply because people have different definitions of 'complex'.

what i define as complex may not match what you define as complex and then we will end up with another argument !

 

also i just bought the product like 3-4 days ago so i might not be too familiar or in the right position to talk about the stuff it has and probably should not even have talked soo much about it :D

You should post any complaints/questions on the official support forum at the ORG.

The 757v2.0 looks excellent!  Will definitely upgrade from the old version.

A PMDG-like airliner add-on for X-Plane is needed. This one, at least from the description, certainly qualifies as such...

It's basically the same features as the 767 (seems identical) and almost all that where present in v1.0 By that metric we have had a PMDG airliner in XP for quite a while now

Looks very nice indeed! With this and the IXEG there are very nice airliner add-ons available for X-Plane. I bought X-Plane just for the IXEG and I like it more and more. X-Plane is completely underrated in my opinion. If they would only fix the weather and the annoying short LOD of the street lights then I would not touch P3D anymore...
