Who do u buy first ? PMDG 737 Maddog or Bae 146

Recommended Posts

The 737 looks to be amazing; the BAE 146 was a favourite as a kid!

Sorry, but none of the named addons is tempting me - surely very upsetting for the distributors - I have got a 737 home cockpit - so the PMDG 737 is no competitor - "Maddog" - I never cared about - and the BAE is one of those I fly once or twice and then loose interest.

In the new incarnation of MS FS I would rather wait for the releases and read the reviews / watch the videos before going on either.

MFS is too dynamic to allow for "King of the Castle" developers... FBW, PMDG, CARENADO, JUST FLIGHT, AEROSOFT, ... all other including the GREAT / SUPERB freeware community, are pretty much ex-aequo these days.

I'm looking forward to them all but I do have a little bias towards the BAE 146. Another thing to consider is it comes in 3 pax variants and will also include a cargo and state variant as well so you are getting a lot for your money.

I'll purchase the most familiar to me and that would be the 737.  I have never flown the Maddog and it looks amazing, same for the 146. The Maddog and the 146 both look like there is a bit of a learning curve which should be interesting to learn.

Good times ahead!

Only the 737 and just to recoup my $100 investment in PMDG, and that will be it.

This new sim has made me a GA guy - I await the A2A 182 with steam gauges or a 206 from A2A, or anyone that steps up with good one!

I'm more interested in the Fenix A320 and PMDG 737. I may take a look at the JustFlight 146 depending on how that turns out to be

The PMDG i've already "paid" for.

The Fenix for sure.

The 146 I had in P3D...no thanks

The MD80 is a class act but I just did not like it, as in the old banger did nothing for me.

So 737 and  a A320, job done!

They haven't quoted MSFS pricing yet but I would imagine it would be in line with the P3d and XP11 versions.

Without a doubt the JustFlight 146 then the Maddog.  No doubt at all the PMDG 737 will be amazing but so many years of 737s and Airbus flooding the market - meh!

both the 146 and Maddog are something different with new challenges and systems to work through - a bit old school with some automation thrown in.

I believe they have said there will be no 'base package' price per se, and each variant will be standalone.  I think what they will do, to encourage sales, is charge the same price for each variant when it's the first one a customer purchases, then incentivize purchasing additional variants by offering substantial discounts for each.  My guess is: $79 for the first, and $39 for subsequent, or something along those lines.

MD-11 would be my first choice, but sounds like the 737 will come out first. Either way , I have had enough A320 flying for now and look forward to anything new that is high fidelity.
