Rotate MD-11 releases THIS THURSDAY (24th)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've mentioned it in the preview thread but I think it's big enough news to justify it's own.

Rotate  have put out a video announcing their MD-11 is realising Thursday 24th March 2022.

Going to be quite a month or two (maybe 3) for tubeliner fans on all sims.

@Matchstick, while I am always happy and excited to see new and quality aircraft getting released for X-Plane... are you in any way affiliated with Rotate?

In other words - I don´t think there is the need to create (some may say spam) multiple posts for the exact same subject..

Impressive video! Does it come in anything else than cargo version? As far as I can see, it's only the freighter-version, which is presented in the video.


Best regards,

X-Plane Reviews have published their assessment of the release version

TL;DR; Complex but rewarding - 

Quote

Here is another landmark simulation aircraft for the X-Plane Simulator. X-Plane users seemingly to have to wait forever for these iconic aircraft, but again in this case it has been well worth the wait. Big, heavy, complex, demanding and seriously rewarding. The Rotate MD-11 is all of these things and more, in systems and it's depth of simulation, this is again another level of realism and can get extremely addictive...   and it is absolutely another classic to enjoy most certainly...    and certainly very and highly recommended to own and fly.

From watching Capt Canada's stream ( yesterday ) I noticed:

- engine simulation apperas to be based on default XP11 jet/ turbofan simulation. The three are always in perfect sync too ;

- During initial climb, after AP engagement I see a slow but persistent wing rocking patern while following the route / "LNAV-ing" ;

- During approach the FD bars appear to command quite "out-of-path inputs". The "pilot" isn't following the FD at all, otherwise he would probably have ruined the landing ...

One of the streams crashed to desktop on final. May have bug or 2 to sort out and some engine sound issues. Too quiet. Mind you to be expected.

Yes, there will be a passenger version later on.

I guess would be prudent to wait for the passenger version with some possible systems bugs ironed by then.

It's released now a few hours ago. From what I can see, the passenger version will be a paid (reduced price) upgrade similiar to the Inibuilds A300/A310 scheme.
