Upcoming TRAINING Edition Release & Virtual Cockpit Re-Desig

Recommended Posts

So I see that the Training Edition is available at a discount of 74.96 euros versus the list price of 99.99 euros.  I know it gets excellent reviews.  But I do have a question for the experts, I mostly fly FS Labs, PDMG and Leonardo.  Should I expect something of that quality here? Also, I'm not a turboprop expert (I've spent a little time with the TBM) is it hard to get up to speed?

As for turbo prop yep you can expect the same level 🙂

No. The Prop handling is fairly straight forward in the Q400.
Basically you operate the prop levers (or condition levers rather) through different detents during your flight
1020 RPM (TO + APPR)
900 RPM (CLB)
850 RPM (CLB/CRZ/ Low noise APPR)

The Torque is set via conventional power levers.

She is a rocket though, with those powerful PW100's. Things happen pretty fast during TO and initial climb .

Also mind the weak yaw damper, the nose will want to yaw during departure, so rudder trim is a good advice. 😅

Thanks everyone for great and insightful posts. I’m going to give it a go! Seems like Majestic rarely offers discounts and the new version will get the updated-updated visuals too, so I’m taking the plunge.

If you're used to the FSL A320 or PMDG's Boeings, you're in for a ride with the Q400. There's a lot more to handle, in part due to less automation, especially in single pilot operations. But it's also so much more fun, and overall a very rewarding experience.

Agree. This plane is far more challenging to fly. Which also means far more rewarding.

Sounds a bit like the MD-80 with a side of turboprop. 

You can at least land the FlyTheMaddog MD-80 gracefully. My landings in the Q400 are a coin toss between 'ok' and looking like either this landing, this one or this one.
Seems like I am equally as good as the pros! 😆

Great aircraft. I think you'll enjoy your purchase.

Any planned visual refreshes for the pilot or pro edition?  Or do you solely have to buy VEP going forward?

I remember the Majestic Dash not having the same power and climb performance as the real one. Is it fixed with the Training Version?

It’s on Simmarket. But I guess if you bought it previously on JustFlight and want the upgrade path price you’ll have to wait. Odd how these things are not synchronized more.

@kevinfirth

Hi Kevin,

first of all I don't have hours on that specific A/C, but colleagues of mine have and reported overall better performance after TO in general (long time ago, can't reconstruct the whole conversation in detail). The Q400 is a monster....

I found an interesting discussion on that topic: http://majesticsoftware.com/forums/discussion/737/this-a-c-is-underpowered 

Maybe you have felt differently and you know the A/C from daily business? Let us know.

 

PS: I don't know what you meant by "aerosoft version".

@crosswind @Tokitaumelie

Any update about availability from JustFlight? Or is there anyway I can have the upgrade discount from another site?

Would really love to get this plane 😞
