Queen v3 Leaving LAX

Recommended Posts

B744V3 Beta KLAX departure for LGAV. An almost 13 hour flight. No landing video though as had power issues at my place somewhere over Greenland :(.

Nice.

 

I can tell that's FSX since the cockpit is very clear.  In P3D the cockpits remain a little fuzzy for me.

Usually FXAA (try turning it off), and/or HDR (decrease the brightness and/or bloom). FXAA means "fast approXimate anti-aliasing." It's quicker, but not as pretty. For the HDR, it simulates bright stuff being bright by 'blooming' it (think of the extra fringe glare around a bright doorway when viewed from a dark room). Since most of the text is white, it blooms it, making it "blurry."


What LAX addon was that?  Nice and smooth FPS.

 

Looks like FSDT.

Thanks Kyle I will look into those settings.

 

I *DARE* PMDG to ignore the false impetus of a Christmas 2016 release!  ;-)

Nice video!

As we can see the 747 could not climb further above a safety altitude and you had to deviate right due to its weight.

In real world like that ,the captain would follow the same procedures? :smile:

The flight would have been vectored onto its route as appropriate, by ATC. Given the climb gradient on the GABRE, I'm not sure I would've filed it after looking at performance, but Chris may have a better answer.

so everything depends on flight dispatcher?Maybe he would have filed an alternative routing according to this perfomance.Anyway thanks Kyle!

Two signatures are required for every airline flight:

  1. Dispatcher; and
  2. Pilot

This is one of the reasons. Basically, the dispatcher will ensure that the flight will make the technical requirements before the flight. The pilot will ensure that it does so in practice. (Very high level overview here.)

As Kyle said in real life probably they would take another SID and another routing if the climb gradient was not feasible. Or they could have departed from 07L and turn right 180 or whatever ATC instructed them. This SID is Vector to the GABRE

Every time I see a heavy departure, I get that really heavy feeling - you can actually really experience the might of the Queen in all her glory by looking at that takeoff!   I love the "feel" that radiates from the aircraft.

Judging from this video, you already have it. It's called Queen of the Sky's v2. Apart from the weather radar and enhanced sounds I don't notice much difference. 

I've just flown KSFO-MMMX on my trusty BA PMDG 747 and it'll take more than this to make me upgrade. (I get the ATC callouts with ASN).

Well I have the v2 and I see a world of differences, not sure how you dont.

 

For one very important thing, immersion wise, the cockpit is much more clear and higher resolution.

 

Also, clearly more functional.

 

As a Queen Cultist, I am locked and loaded to purchase the P3D version (been saving for over a year)....PMDG:  TAKE MY MONEY!

I agree, but at what cost am I going to be paying for an upgrade with higher virtual cockpit resolution, weather radar and slightly enhanced sounds. The external model of the existing 747 is excellent.

I've only looked at the V3 videos in a superficial way as I keep on feeling like a dog in an experiment run by some guy called Pavlov whenever I watch the V3 videos, but I've also noticed some rather striking differences.

 

However, that said, I retired the V2 the moment someone added functional weather radars to the T7 and NGX, and flying the 747 without it just didn't seem satisfying to me any more.

 

Now, I'm going to go dig for bones in the backyard or chase cars to pass the time.

Skies*

 

 

 

Weather radar, sounds (utilizing some more external processing to make it more authentic), textures, variants (400, 400F, 400BCF, 400M, etc.), the ability to change all sorts of company options on the fly (along with the associated fleet management of loading the livery and instantly having those settings), accumulated hours (something that didn't make it into our stuff until the NGX), auto functions (auto cruise, auto step, and auto fuel management), and a few other things that I'm probably glossing over.

 

...and of course, some of the secret stuff I've been working on  :ph34r:

Actually I don't, by the time I got back into Flight simming it was long out of the store.

It'll be out there one day if you want it, if not that's up to you. Your choice.

I wouldn't retire my 747v2 in the same way as I wouldn't retire my MD-11. They're all part of my PMDG stable, which I love to fly; but I might sacrifice weather radar on my 747 when I can fly my T7's as alternatives. 

 

BUT- some of the secret stuff Kyle's been working on just could convince me!!

In real world the departure would have been to the west over the water, and they would have routed enough over the water until they had the altitude to clear the MEA's ( LAX almost never departs East due to noise constraints from overly active NIMBY's, unless the winds are very strong from the east. Prevailing winds are also nearly always from the west). Regardless, I enjoyed the video, nicely done!

Thanks for the video, Chris :smile:

 

Just an observation... I noticed that the A/T mode annunciation was a little late to change to HOLD. Officially it should change at 65kts (CAS) on the 747-400 (The 777 changes at 80kts), but there may be a few knots delay. You can see this in YouTube videos (e.g. Google "YouTube Boeing 747-400 take-off from FRA")

 

Will the gear LOCK OVRD Switch be animated in the final version? I noticed it didn't move after liftoff.

 

Thanks!

Cheers

John H Watson
