  1. Wow, been following development from the start. I really believe this will set a new benchmark for flight sim developers. What they look to achieve is mind blowing and if they pull it off, it should really make other developers, like PMDG, stop and think about how they can come close to matching this level of immersion. I have bought all PMDG's products from FSX days, all FSLABS products and Leonardo and Majestic Dash 8, all have set the bar for flight sim. Most recently I got the PMDG B737 and for me the hassle of manually setting up flights with opening doors, loading the A/C, seeing PMDG liveries on ground service vehicles, just broke any immersion for me. Graphically it's beautiful but the magenta line drawing still wasn't fixed and my over all experience was disappointment. I can't wait for an MSFS product that has that immersion from the cockpit when sat at a gate, ala FSLABS. Will be a day one purchase for me. I see no issue with people comparing PMDG products with others, Rob on their forum is well known for waxing lyrical about his products, people (including me) have spent over $1000 on them so I see no issue with people critiquing PMDG. Whilst in the past they have been trail blazers, I think for a long time they have been overtaken, think FSLABS, Leonardo, Majestic, and never regained top place. But that's just my opinion.
  2. What I would love to see is the pushback walker plugged in to the A/C as the push takes place. It really is an immersion killer listening to a guys voice in the cockpit magically being able to talk! Not sure how hard that would be to do, but I'd hoped with the advances of MSFS that would be doable. Otherwise we will have to continue the nonsense of his voice appearing on interphone when he is nowhere near the aircraft and not connected to it.
  3. I think this is a rushed product that does not do justice to such a major airport. Such a shame, LHR deserves better.
  4. It's such a shame that large U.K airports, EGLL and EGKK are being done by these developers. Really disappointing, I'd love for flightbeam or flytampa to do a version. The trouble is when lesser developers like ini builds (EGLL) and Origami (EGKK) get versions out quickly it probably makes the better developers look elsewhere. I guess I will wait for UK2000 to do a version, after being burnt by buying the Origami EGKK scenery I won't make the same mistake. I have worked at EGKK for 20 years and the version they did was pretty rubbish, judging from this review (very thorough, good job) I won't be buying this any time soon. Cheers
  5. Oh Dear, I have their LGW product and I don't think much of it at all. And in real life I work at LGW. Have been there over 20 years and was was really looking forwards to it coming out. When it did It was a big disappointment to me. I would love a flytampa or flightbeam version as they are top notch. Lets hope other developers are not put off doing LHR. LGW and LHR deserve great sceneries for MSFS.
  6. Ah, My mistake, in that case I humbly apologize for my comments. I thought it was a payware scam like some of the stuff I've been seeing being sold for MSFS 2020. I should have checked before I posted. I take back what I said, and good luck to them.
  7. Looks like utter rubbish. I will wait patiently for FSLABS to do an airbus in MS2020, before i get interested.
  8. Hi Ben, Great videos so far. Really enjoying the format. I have a request that I think would be helpful to allow users to get the most out of these tutorials. Would you be able to include the flight plans and maybe the weather/setup file for P3D? This would then allow users to follow through in the videos and try and duplicate what they are watching. I know I would find this useful. Maybe they could be kept with the video episode downloads (when they are ready for download). Just a thought. Cheers Neil
  9. Outstanding piece of payware!! If only I had a spare $12. I love the way they pay tribute to FS2004 with their choice of textures! Outstandingly retro, takes me back to scenery in the good old days :) THis type of work puts the like of FS Dreamteam, Flytampa and Aerosoft to shame!!
  10. I don't see it as bashing PMDG. People are just voicing what many people feel about them. Myself included. As I know exactly who they are referring to on their forum who has now left. As mentioned RSR does like to wax lyrical about how great his products are which again is fine. They are not a charity, they are a business and as such should support their customers and are not immune from critic. I have been a long time customer of theirs and have most of their Aircraft. In my opinion they used to lead the pack in producing the best airliners in flightsim and as such had an arrogance about them (which i think is still there, to some degree). Now however with FSLABS and MadogX they have been overtaken and surpassed in quality and features. They no longer are the leaders, as that title has been taken by FSLABS and Fly the Madog. It will be interesting to see if they can catch back up. But healthy competition can only be good for us all.
  11. I think you are getting confused with Fighter A/C. Commercial aircraft are required to be very aerodynamically stable and should not exhibit instability. If they did they would not get a certificate. That's part of the issue with the MAX and why the MCAS was invented to help mask the aerodynamic instability caused by the bigger engines in a different position.
  12. It's definitely an Aprils fool joke. Any serious developer with such a massive announcement in the flightsim world would never do so on April the 1st. An obvious wind up.
  13. Hi Ben, Great videos, and good value, really enjoying them. I'm up to video 4 and if i could point out one small issue. Video 4 at 45 min and 40 secs when you do your 747 control checks, you have your fwd and aft back to front. You push while saying full aft and you pull while saying full fwd. Just a minor point, but probably quite important when flying, don't you think? Lol. Really looking fwd (see what i did there) to your next airport, (maybe you could do a poll for suggestions) and your A320 training series. Be great to get into the guts of the FSLABS A320. Cheers Neil
  14. Actually it very much is used at at least one other airport in the UK, Gatwick is 160 until 4 dme.
  15. I don,t think you can blame this one on cabin crew! I think it has more to do with the pilots, don't you think?
