The MD-82 in MSFS and the future

Recommended Posts

I would have purchased it if it was between 50-75 bucks ..and looked past the texture issues but at the price they want plus having to get third party sound set.. yeah ..no thank you.

Wish them all the best though.

It’s beautiful to look at, I’ve watched lots of videos of it, and I like vintage airliners, but all of that complexity with no copilot, in a plane that was flown by three in reality, is more than I want to learn to do or to actually do. Bring in a copilot like the PMDG DC6 and I’ll buy it. I’ll even pay double!🙂

FS2Crew is available for it

I really loved the MD-80 in FS9.  It was probably the best plane in terms of flight dynamics.  But the FSX/P3D version was almost unbearable to land.  I have been given the impression it handles similarly in 2020 d/t a comment a real world pilot made about it flying like a brick.  If the flight dynamics were more fluid and enjoyable I would buy it.

I'd like to see them add some kind of aircraft overlay on these maps like we see in other planes so you can track the flight along the chart.

V1 made this comment on his Youtube channel but he is a RW A320 Pilot. I have seen many videos of the MD-82 landing from cockpit view and they don't float. Leonardo probably has one of the best flight models in MSFS (A2A first) and in P3D/FSX and are not twitchy like most other planes in MSFS. MD-82 flies like it should for the most part.

Well it could be a mindset towards sales but it is actually not .

What can we expect here ? Its still my first choice in MSFS/P3D but it do take a hit on performance.

Still on a i7-4770K at 4K High settings at 25HZ/FPS Vsync. 

Its still the best airliner in my opinion and deserves alot more credit here.

What do you think ?

Having difficulty getting it to follow NAV.

Any particular actions needed to get it to lock on to the magenta line?

Flies very smoothly.

Those georeferenced charts but Leonardo doesn't have it at least for now. Also there looks like a minor bug. Every time I restart MD I need to login to Navigraph again

Anyone know where the click spot is to hide the EFB? Also, can the EFB "Weight & Balance" and "Performance" Calculations be changed to "LBS.",  it appears to be defaulted to "Kgs" only.

Yes and Yes. Tablet can be hidden/unhidden by clicking on button below it (left of "briefcase LT"). Units can be change in external app per airframe tail number. In other words you have to change for each livery you intend to fly

As sd_flyer said, click this button. I believe it is right-click by default but for my setup I have to use a middle-mouse button click. spacer.png

Thanks haskell, sd_flyer as well, Actually I did try the button shown in the screen shot, both L & R click, and it did not work, not in the sim right now but I will try middle-mouse click next time in. I believe I do have "lbs/inHg" checked for that particular aircraft, but I am getting both the FMS and EFB units still "kgs"...strange. I have simbrief set for "lbs" as well.

Maybe its the load manager planner itself, cant remember but the planning tool can also be set to lbs/kg. It might effect the EFB as well. Try it
