QualityWings 787 Feedback

Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I have not seen any topic in this forum on this new release.  That surprises me considering how many people flew their 757.  Since I long left FSX for P3D and I know it has not yet been released for P3D V4, I was wondering what the people that took the leap to purchase this think.  I have not seen any reviews or demos...Thank you for your time.

And....because there's already a thread on this somewhere. I know because I remember posting in it.

Not released yet, but it's on my list to buy as soon as it's available for P3D V4 ... have a few aircraft on my list to buy when available for P3D V4 ... MJC Q400, FSLab A3xx, PMDG J41, maybe even an AS A3xx ... all in the works and my guess (a guess nothing more) is all will be available for holiday season (I hope).

The aircraft I miss the most is the MJC Q400, wonder if it will still retain true surround sound support?

I enjoyed QW's 146 more than their 757 (probably because I used to fly on 146 very frequently back in the early 90's and even got into the cockpit a few times).  That 146 can takeoff on some very short runways.

Cheers, Rob.

I think the thread was moved to the fsx forum

+1.  Got it for P3Dv3 and desperately await its conversion to v4.

If we're able to buy the base version (FSX) and get the P3Dv4 one at an upgrade fee then I'm tempted to install it in P3Dv2.5 which currently is my QW Sim.

As soon as I have the MJC Q400 and FSL A320, I will uninstall P3Dv3 and make some more breathing room on my harddrive.

Just to have the Q400 in P3Dv4 is going to make it hard to fly anything else.

Their announcement on Facebook just now:

Folks,
The last days and weeks all of us worked very long hours to meet the deadline we set ourselves. 
We had planned for a release on September 21st but we still have open items that we feel must be addressed before the team can agree to a 'GO' for release.
Although we are close, we do not feel the 787 product will be ready for release next weekend.
We'll be working our butts off in the coming days to deliver the plane as soon as possible.

My thoughts:  Don't create another 717 or CRJ scenario by rushing the release to meet an arbitrary date.  Take your time and do it right the best you can.

Since moving to P3D I miss flying the PMDG J41 and Coolsky DC-9. 

You should love the upcoming Dash 8 Q400 and Leonardo Maddog MD-80 Series for P3DV4!!!

Oh yeah, forgot about that incoming!  So many aircraft and so little time ... I need to retire.

Cheers, Rob.

The only problem with retiring is that one typically has more time to spend money but less money to spend. But your probably a billionaire Rob so that won't effect you. I myself am only a millionaire and my wife thinks its all hers. :laugh:

+1...now that v3.4 has stopped working because of the windows update issues, I can't even fly it in that version

Well, I can tell you that the Leonardo team are geared up and in full production mode.  I'm afraid I can't share anything more than that for the time being,. but...

OVPA live streamed the Dash 8 Q400 years before it was released, and we did the same with the Aerosoft Airbus and CRJ-700/900, so I wouldn't be surprised to see us streaming the revised MD-80 for P3DV4 sometime in the coming weeks (always with permission, of course).

It would be nice if QW redid the 146 for P3Dv4. I don't mean just an update either.

I recall that they won't due to limited resources, that and some people want the 737 Classic to be released within the next 5 or so years

QW should take their time. I am looking forward to the 787! She's one of my favourite planes in real life together with the 777-300ER and the A350.

This won't be good days for my bank account... QW 787, AS A330, FSL A320 for v4, iPhone X, car insurance.... bye bye money :-)

Damn! The 21st of September also sounded too good to be true... 

Hoping for a release soon - but to be honest, I'm not holding my breath for this year...

Many simmers unfortunetally are missing the pragmatic approach here, qw will never ever release 787 in 2017 and rumors coming from well informed you tube well known sources claim it is not a 2018 matter either.

Told that, every opinion, fact or post deserve credit and respect of course but my personal opinion is that after 10 years of potential customers f***** around, I will stay far far away from such hype marketing machine called qw.

Never more in my simmer life

'Well informed you tubers' , there's  an oxymoron if there ever was one. Unless it comes  directly  from the  dev team anybody's word is worth  the same i.e. nothing,  just pure speculation.

Agreed. We saw that it can easily take a few more months to iron out the last bugs. And these guys are slow and not full-time. So my bet is on a 2018 release for the FSX version. The P3D conversion is somewhat urealistic as they can't keep up with the "speed" of P3Ds development. Till they started to come close, P3D v5 will be knocking on our doors. And I will not buy a plane anymore (and 70$ is not cheap) that I can only use for a short time in old simulators. They couldn't even make the BAe 146 properly work in P3D v3 and that got released 2 years ago. So they couldn't spend a few days to make it work.. in two years... that tells you a lot about their dedication to keep their products alive...
