Recommended Posts

WOW - 

Enroute from CYVR to CYYJ and this airplane is SICK!  I fly tube-liners for a living and this I have to say is totally incredible.  The sound is amazing!!!

Nice work Double R and team!

Yessss! Glad to hear it.

I love the sounds. Having spent a lot of time around radials over the last few years, I can definitely appreciate it. Glad you do too!

Definitley says something when a RW pro pilot likes it (my guess is he is an Air Canada guy).

I am so dumb, just noticed your user name. Which airframe are you on?

This aircraft is amazing... love it from the first second.. Just did a short flight from TNCM to TKPK (or better: I tried it) but I didn't get along with the AFE... When I switched him off I killed all my engines (the MP jumped around like crazy and I couldn't calm them down).. I think I will have to go into the manual, lol... I tried it like Sully but I drowned my freight in the Caribbean.. Well, the flight back to TNCM without the AFE was a lot better (and healthier) for everyone involved.. Guess my RW J-3 hours helped a lot lol...

Thanks PMDG for another amazing aircraft in my hangar :D

WOW was my first word too, shortly followed by...."Oh lord" this is a whole new beast to learn  :happy:

I much prefer to fly her myself, after all with electric prop sync and only one prop lever (the cue ball) and auto mixture flying solo in the simulator is reasonable with practice.  It helps that I have decades in a light twin too.

Marc,

The address in your eCommerce account is the one to which we mail the invoice for our airplane that you dumped in the ocean?

We can do payroll deduction if you like...  :biggrin:

Whoa whoa whoa. Wait for the NTSB report, board inquiry. You can't just blame the pilot like that... ;-)

naaaa, it was the Flying Bulls one.. I think I'll drink-and-jump that out with Red Bull.. I'll just tell them I learned to fly it at PMDG :)

I wasn't going to purchase this because I'm more of a jet kinda guy but....I couldn't resist after seeing everyone's reaction and my reaction is the same. Wow. That sound set is insane!

Awesome simulation... great cockpit details, every system perfectly simulated (even circuit breakers!), lots of failures and malfunctions to deal with... WOW!  Great manuals! A piece of history to study! Thank you, PMDG!!!

I feel the same way. Simply starting that first engine felt like an accomplishment. The cockpit detail is excellent, and there's so much to keep an eye on. I'm a fan of the AFE...I definitely like the feeling that there's a crew present with me as I fly that big ol' girl.

Just fine tuning all the camera views I've set up in the cockpit is going to take a while. Meanwhile, the learning continues! Back to old-school navigation!

Gents,

I will try to start a few threads to bring your attention to some of the really cool stuff buried in this simulation so you can get an idea just how deeply our modeling really goes.

I have a pretty significant amount of time flying radials of a various size, and obviously have quite a bit of vintage propliner time in the logbook.  Chris and the team spent hours bouncing ideas and collecting data which we then fleshed out using anecdotes, experiences and knowledge from what it takes to fly and maintain one of these airplanes.  We also had a significant amount of input from folks who still operate these airplanes, and that really went a long way toward making this simulation a complete one.

If you are even remotely interested in old airliners, this product will definitely get your juices flowing- especially when you turn the sound up.

I definitly agree with that - This Plane's Engine Sound makes the 777 cry in my opinion (love the 777 though ;) )
