Has anyone tried the new DC-9

Recommended Posts

Hard to know where I am supposed to post this, but hey, here is where I do most of my reading, so here goes.

Anyone buy and fly the new Sky Simulations McDonnell Douglas DC-9 for Prepar3D Version 4? I don't even know who they are, and except for the announcement on the AVSIM front page know nothing about their products.

The pictures and claims sound good and make it seem like am immersive and detailed simulation product. I don't want to be the first one to try it for P3Dv4!

Thoughts?

Kind regards,

Pretty sure its not a new DC-9 but a port forward from FSX.  I have it.  Its atrocious OMHO.

Well, I just purchased it and it doesn't show up in the V4 aircraft selector... even after running their SP1.

Not got a lot of faith in them. I bought the FSX version and it wouldn't install, every time I tried to verify it online, it went to a dead link. I emailed their support and they said they'd sort it and never got back to me. So I'll not be buying anything else from them.

I can tell the guys at Skysim don't excel in product support. Expect a lot of bugs. I bought the product for FSX, then the update/patch for P3Dv3 (don't remember if it was free or not), and uninstalled it without flying too much.

Well there we go.

Thanks for the feedback. No wonder the reaction to the announcement was so..., let's just say, understated.

Why would those outlets even be willing to market something like that? 

Does not do anyone's reputation or business any good. 

Thank you.

Kind regards,

There are some very slight hints over at the Coolsky forum that their wonderful DC-9 will have a P3D update in the future.

Yes, I was reading the other thread(s) on that. I will definitely be interested a new MadDog or DC-9 from Coolsky.
