Complex panel with simple aircraft

Recommended Posts

Guest depot_haldol

Just wondering... Keeping a fancy panel in memory has got to cost some overhead, right? So could performance be increased by taking a complex aircraft + panel package (like PMDG or LDS) and replacing the fancy aircraft model with something simpler, like the MSFS default airplane?There was a thread recently about doing the opposite, i.e. using a commercial aircraft with a default panel. How about dumping the commercial aircraft and keeping the complex panel with all the systems simulation? WOuld that increase performance?---Will

Well, I suppose I could, but I'm worried about destryoing an expensive add-on in a futile attempt to make things better. So I was hoping to hear from someone who had tried this already. But there's always the option to re-install right? I'll keep you posted. (I'm getting decent FPS with the PMDG 737NG, but it wouldn't hurt to move from "decent" to "great." So maybe this idea would help. I obviously couldn't care less about what the OUTSIDE of the aircraft looks like; I'm only interested in cockpit and systems simulation.)---Will

Many pilots have merged the payware PSS A320 family panel with the freeware iFDG model and it works very well indeed. But this is nothing to do with increasing performance but is in order to make use of more up to date flight dynamics.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
