Suggestions for C-47, freeware, running in v6?

Recommended Posts

The tittle says it all :-=

The DC-3 / C-47 are among my preferred aircraft ever, and I have used variations in FSX, XP and even MFS, but I wonder if this one is "the one" togofor in P3D, and if is v6-ready?

I see Aeroplane Heaven now offers their DC-3 / C-47 for free. What about that one?

Thank you!

Manfreds C47 has been my go to dak, there are 1000s of paints and it feels more completed than AH version

I really feel sorry for the people who forked out money for the cartoonish AH model

It lasted about 24hrs before being removed from all existence on my pcs. it shouldve never been payware

Yes, I believe you have the correct version there. Really fun plane. I can’t agree with the above appraisal of the AH DC3. I enjoy both and like having the more modern panel in the AH version since the DC3 was/is such a versatile plane. While at flyaway look at the B36, BE18, Lockheed Electra and Orion amount others. All work in V6. Not “study level but I find myself flying FMS birds from A to B  much less lately and enjoying hand flying these old props while sightseeing different parts of the world quite satisfying.

Manfred Jahn & Crew is the one you want.

Don't get that megapack, it's an x86 release and is missing quite a bit.

Grab the PBR version from Sim-OutHouse, you'll need a login to do so and might be a good idea to perform a search in case there is a newer download link.

The PBR version will need the correct Windshield.dll for the rain effects obtainable from any P3D installed A2A aircraft or direct from A2A.

Here is an AVSIM posting regarding.

There are quite a few PBR paints available, I've installed 30 but there maybe more available now.

There is also available a "Ground Controlled Approach" system which is a precurser to the ILS system in use today, ideal for installation in a plane of this era.

Also the Aeroplane Heaven version is a freebee so you could give it a trial at no cost to yourself, that said I've found AH's planes to be lacking in many areas, but then again it is now free.

Cheers

 

PS: don't miss the discussion thread on the PBR download as it includes a couple of dropbox fix downloads and the paintkit.

I don't have v6, but given the plane is no cost there is nothing to stop a trial of it to see if it does.

Just be sure to grabe the latest windshield.dll from A2A.
