Many thanks Chuck for your wonderful guides!

Please consider for your next guides the B747 and the B787!

Only had a quick look through them, but these look excellent. I'll look forward to going through them in more detail. I always like seeing how different people use different procedures. Thanks for these.

 

As for your next one, I'll opt for the 747. I have the 777 but I onl have it for FSX which I don't use anymore, and I couldn't justify repurchasing it for P3D. Were you thinking of doing similar guides for any other aircraft in the future? Because I have loads of requests 😅

  • Boeing 747-400 (PMDG, FSX/P3D)
  • Boeing 757 (Flight Factor, X-Plane 11)
  • Boeing 767 (Flight Factor, X-Plane 11)
  • Boeing 777-200LR (PMDG, FSX/P3D)
  • Bombardier CRJ700/900 (Aerosoft, FSX/P3D)
  • Douglas DC-6B (PMDG, FSX/P3D)
  • Lockheed L-049 Constellation (A2A, FSX/P3D)

I'm interested in the CRJ for sure.

 

Others I'd be interested in would include:

 

Commercial Level Simulation - DC-10

Carenado - 525A Ciation CJ2

Carenado - E50P Phenom 100

A2A - Cessna 182

Aerosoft - A320/321 etc (whenever is gets released).

 

Of course, I realise that these aircraft may not be to your tastes, but if they are then well and good. And yeah, I appreciate that there's a lot of work involved. But there's just a few ideas to keep you occupied 😅

By the way, do you guys have any ideas/suggestions for improvements? (formatting, certain aspects better explained, etc.)

Absolutely Outstanding! Dare I say "Works of Art". If the flightsim community were ever to present a "Humanitarian Award", you da man!! I use your A10C and P51D guides over on DCS regularly. You're unofficial statemanship between the two platforms is truly nice to see.

I have been banging my head against the wall using the Q400 tutorial from the Majestic user page that has outdated and useless airway info from 2013 trying to enter a FLP into the FMC. Your  Q400 guide is truly "mana from heaven!" A tutorial flight that works. What a concept.

You asked for input. I'm almost ashamed to suggest given the level of work you have put into the Q400 Guide. However... a page or two in the guide that covers throttle control settings in the Majestic CPAN I believe would benefit many virtual sim pilots making the transition from piston slappers to a jet. I had bookmarked half a dozen forum posts about the issue and with the meltdown at Majestic and the Q400 forum here going "poof", I believe the need truly exists. Ohhhh... BTW as you are surely aware many of us warbird enthusiasts own a TM Warthog Throttle. Using it as an example I'm sure would benefit most everyone (sounds a bit self serving, I know).

Anyway.... thank you again for all your VERY KIND work for myself and the community. You make the world a bit nicer today.

Cheers,

I'd add Captain Sim 757-200 III and QW 787 to the list.

And a big Thank You for the new PMDG guides.

Cheers

The 787 looks quite tempting indeed... I haven't seen many reviews about the QW 787, except maybe those who don't really go into the technical side of things (system fidelity, flight model accuracy, that sort of thing...). Is it any good?

I don't have it yet but i'm planning to get it soon. I've read good things about it and I believe it's a good addon.

Chuck, oh man, I am speechless.

I knew your DCS and IL-2 guides but was not aware of the P3D one's.

Many thanks and deep respect to you!

Simicro.

I'm a bit torn on which guide to work on next.

Boeing 757? 767? QW 787?

Or maybe go a completely different route with the Aerosoft Bombardier CRJ700? Or the Avro Lancaster by Aeroplane Heaven? Or even the upcoming Avro Vulcan by Just Flight? 

Ugh! So many choices... so little time.
