Got the cash.

Someone talk me into the purchase. ...push me over the line...

It's the only PMDG aircraft with a HUD. 'nuff said! :gaul:

Yes, as a simming fighter jock, the HGS is very interesting. ..

Convince me to get the 777 (including the expansion for P3D) instead of Apple’s oral B case and I’ll convince you to get the 777. I have got $220 and I’m tossing up between the two. :)

Pfft, to heck with Apple junk...get the P3D 773...DO IT...

Ahhhhh! I have one person in my ear to get the glorified Oral B case and a person saying “get the 777!”

Man, why is it always so hard to choose between two highly important things (because I always want to listen to music on my iPhone when I need to change it        >:( for myself! :P)

After falling back on my failsafe method of getting an answer on what to buy via my second favourite website (after PMDG.com, of course) http://andrew.hedges.name/experiments/random/pickone.html I got my answer;

I’m going for the Tripple, go to my sig and take a look at the link and inside of the folder, Prepar3D, look at the NGX shots. 

That should be more than enough reason to get the NG. 

:)       (I think it’s the most rewarding and most fun to fly out of the PMDG jet trio.)

The NGX looks great and is really fun to fly.  Definitely get it!  I still go back to it every second flight.

Essentially is bug-free, the autopilot and FMS are more advanced than the 777/747, and from a simulation standpoint, seem to work bug-free and really well.  It does LNAV/VNAV approaches beautifully.  It's a quirky mix of old and new, has lots of cool switches, and is different in operation/more manual than the 744/777.  It's the only FS aircraft (including PMDG things) I trust the automatics in.  HUD is good.  Sounds are excellent.  

Just get it.  If that doesn't convince you - have a look at this guy's photo blog.  He's a Qantas captain on the 737-800.

I own the 737, 777 and 747 for P3D.  To me, the 737 is hands down the most fun plane to fly.

For the RNAV approaches alone it's worth it (now mostly supported by Navigraph).  Once you fly into Queenstown in low visibility with fierce winds you will never look back.  IAN approach I believe its called?  Plus the 600 you can take off practically anywhere, the -800 Short Field Package likewise equals hours of fun.

If you're not married, buy it.

+1

Add to Mike's list the MD11 (my first beta), the JS41 and the DC6 and yet the NGX is my favorite.  I have fun with it... got a BBJ livery for the B736 and fly it like my personal carriage.  While most NG real world flights are 2-3 hr it will comfortably fly ETOPS to the Hawaiian Islands from either West Coast or Alaska, in fact ASA does just that.

His point is, if you're not married you have a better chance of affording it :biggrin:

 

As for it being on sale, don't hold your breath. I don't think I've ever seen a PMDG aircraft on sale.

My point is your commitments may suffer once you have the NGX.  It's the most ridiculously addictive add-on I own.
