I miss my JS4100,  really hope to see it in P3D.

Well, PMDG have just announced it for P3D on Facebook to be released in "short order" :D And well, I see raindrops ^^

It had raindrops in FSX, you just couldn't wipe them away! Hopefully you can now :)

Ahah yes it was a feature of the aircraft back in FSX :) Of course it's there in P3D because the aircraft is much "lighter" than the heavies in terms of animations and all that allow to have rain effects on the windshield :)

They were also only available in 2D cockpit view, not VC.

Rain drops schrain drops, who cares? The JS41 is coming to P3Dv4!!! If they add features then that's fantastic, but if they don't it's bloody fantastic anyway.

The rain drops were in the VC. And the wipers cleared them too. But apparently it used a lot of animations and was quite performance heavy so it was omitted from the NGX ans subsequent releases.

This looks very cool indeed - a little something "different"!   I love the mix of analog and digital gauges in the cockpit....I think this will fit extremely well in my limited line-up of aircraft I am currently flying.

Guess Kyle was right when he said no one would correctly predict what was coming next.  For all the hand-wringing and countless speculation threads, it's nice to know we're getting something that should get into, and out of, some of the smaller airports.

Great Choice, PMDG.

Pretty sure the wipers didn't clear it, I remember being disappointed about that, unless there was an update I didn't install!

Presumably we'll have to pay again for it though, which is a slight shame. I'm currently saving up to transfer to P3D v4 in the 737 and 777 and the -300ER so this will have to wait a long time for the requisite funds to accrue!

This is my expactation, that the j41 for p3d will cost again for a new licence - but that is fine, at least that way we would get this plane in the sim in the first place

If I remembered correctly the JS4100 was VC only.

They're probably waiting until more details are finalised, RSR usually gives quite thorough press releases

I was a great fan of the JS4100 when it was new. It was different to what had come before and it made no apologies for being hard to fly well. Even just starting the engines without blowing them up was a challenge that took practice and perseverance to master, and I would still highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it and wants an accurate and rewarding simulation that looks good and that you actually have to fly rather then just program. However, eight years later I do know how to fly it, so I would struggle to justify paying for it again.

I would definitely purchase it again. The 737/777 wasn't a freebie from FSX to P3D, I don't expect anything different here. I got plenty of tube liners, just no decent turbo-props. Majestic has yet to release a 64bit version of the Q400 (haven't heard a peep from them since last March). My choice would be the JS41 hands down between the two.

Majestic gave a few (not many) updates since then. They are working on it but it might take a while. Personally I don't expect it this year.

No decent turboprops? The Q400 is literally......'Majestic'

Will be great to have the J41 back though.
