Nice! I'm so busy testing random things that I rarely ever stop to appreciate stuff like this. Thanks for putting it together Chris!

Nice, can´t wait to fly the queen.

 

I can't wait til you all have it, honestly. I think you're all going to enjoy it. Some cool stuff coming after it, too  :ph34r:

Just a guess, but if the testers are showing aircraft with commercial liveries, I suppose release isn't a long way off now.

hint.cpp:12:11: error: expected 'while'

 

:P

(Sorry...awful code joke...)

 

RSR will have an update for you all soon enough, I'd imagine.

Hi, I know this is beta software but one thing I've noticed from your videos is that the slats redeploy as soon as the thrust reversers are stowed, whereas on the real thing there is an approximate five or six second delay between the reversers stowing and the slat redeployment.

 

I would post a link but can't figure out how to do it from my iPad. Just watch any video of a landing 744 with the slats in view and reverse thrust used, they correctly stow to prevent damage but they don't redeploy immediately on reversers stowing.

 

Just wondered if this is on your list of things to fix, the previous PMDG Queen of the Skies had this immediate slat redeployment issue too. All engine types on the real thing seem to have the same delay with the slats.

Nice vid man. She sure looks real. Just a question to any of you beta testers who had the original queen. On landing when the spoilers deploy, they would flutter a tiny bit as if fighting the forces against them, very realistic touch just like the real thing. Did not notice this in the video. Hope they haven't done away with this. Regards TJ.

Don't forget that this isn't the "finished product". You may be seeing an earlier version with some functionality not yet included.

I am very impressed. I have not had much time to fly over the last 6 months due to work commitments but 2017 will be different and I have got myself a 43" 4K monitor and GTX1080 in preparation for the 747v3.

 

The sounds on this, even through a YouTube video, seem so rich and nuanced, its really a very very impressive bit of work so far.

 

Well done guys

JUST MINDBLOWING yet again phenomenal effort by PMDG. Thanks for the tease she'll be well worth the wait.... actually she'd fit rather nicely in a xmas stocking!!  :dance:

Guys, could you check the timing between engine reverser sleeve movement and leading edge flap movement.

I've seen a video where the sleeves reach full deployment before the leading edge flaps start moving (Rolls Royce).

In the same video, there was about 5~6 seconds between the start of sleeve closure and the beginning of leading edge flap re-extension. This was an external view video.

All reverser service bulletin modifications have been carried out on the aircraft in this video.

Unfortunately, I can't explain the delays (electrically). The delays may be due to transit times for pneumatic valves, pneumatic drive motors to start turning, etc (although that doesn't explain why the re-extension delay is greater than the stow delay).

 

 

Thanks!

John H Watson.

Thanks PMDG , this will be great  !!  I am really looking forward to release...

 

just one thing: there seems to be quite a long delay between start of rumble/rolling - sound and spoiler deployment on touchdown. Judging from realworld videos from the flightdeck the very first thing you here on touchdown is the spoiler deployment. Rumbling sounds mostly start when nosewheel is on the ground.....

Of course thats just my impression....but might be interesting

 

Thanks and best regards

What happened to the sound of the thrust reversers?

Christopher - that is still work in progress and not the final version.

Irimi - Don't pay too much attention to the sounds in this video - for a number of reasons they are not what you expect to hear in the sim.   
 
Hopefully some more videos from the Beta team will reflect the true sounds from the outside and wing views, but certainly this video does not depict how the aircraft actually sounds currently.

Thanks for the clarification, Armen. Thrust reverser sounds are (to me) one of the most important sound effects of all with simulated airliners. They are great in the 737NGX, so I expect them to be just as good (or even better) in this 747 :wink:

My point exactly, albeit made rather more eloquently!

 

 

Thanks!

Sorry, Matthew, I must have missed your message. I didn't intend to duplicate it.
