I must say I was a huge fan of the MD-80 'Classic' they had out before. The steam version was very fun and challenging to fly. I just purchased, with a 35% discount :) the new version and I must say it is a substantial improvement. I shall enjoy relearning the MD-80 later today after work. Thanks for the hard work guys ;)Just a tip also, if you purchased the previous version don't forget to use the discount coupon with the new version, it saves you some major cash.

I'm going to get it. After reading about it, it has an "in Airplane Training Program" to teach you how to fly the plane properly. Especially like that it has an FMS training section.Stan

But I want my 727!!!!It was like Deja vu. I spent 4 minutes trying to shut up the "Stabilisor" warning. Then 30 trying to remember hwo to turn on the AP digits so I could see them.The Super80 was one of the original FS9 killers that had everybody buying more ram and upgrading.I had no problems and this is the first airliner I have flown in FSX in LOOOOONG time.The performance around the major airports where these birds like to congregate had just been to bad.IMO FSX still has not taken the comlex airline/addon airport throne away from FS9 but its getting there.Thanks Flight1 for refurbishing her!Oh and by the way. I still want my 727;-)

Mike,The original "clasic", and new professional versions are 2 very different products unrelated to each other (except that they were developed by the same teams).Some may simply want a steam gauge version, and other want the EFIS version.So there is no need to price-drop the classic version since this is not an upgrade, but a different product altogether.

How's the performance, how are the FPS, guys?! I'm buying it no matter what. ;)

Fair enough. And never mind the FSX only question, at this price I wouldn't get it anyway. It's just not for me.I do hope we get an Overland type MD-8X one day (with VC, so no need for anyone to refer me to SGA ;-D).

FPS? Well, I'll say that it compares to the last one. In that sense, I get better FPS in this thing than I do in the default C172. That's about all I know, I'm still working on figuring out how to use a FMC.

No, no joke. It was the same with the MD-80 Classic.

>How does the FPS compare to the LDS767? (if anyone has both)>>Thanks!>I have the LDS 767, Super 80 and Super 80 Pro.Both the Super 80 and Super 80 Pro have very fast and fluid FPS. The LDS 767 is not so nice on FPS.For example, sitting on the runway (with FPS locked at 25) * Super 80's both get 25 fps in the VC* LDS 767 gets about 17-18 fps in the VC

With the core development staff in Europe, the dollar has to convert to Euros, which is 35.92 Euros approximately for the product.The European staff is not really getting any more Euros compared to products a few years ago. It is that the US Dollar has gotten weak and the Euro strong. If it was not like this, it would be far easer to have a different price.It is a tough situation.

Sounds like the perfect commercial jet to use...and learn the important aspects of flying such iron. I, too, want to learn the FMC and this looks like the right plane to learn it on (because it's taught while IN the plane).Stan

Stan, I thought that another fellow talked you into the PMDX 474 last week, while I was pitching you the LDS 767. Did you not get either?
