  1. I don't think that this will be free. It really shouldn't be. It looks like a well-made plugin that will be worth paying for.
  2. Thank you for the mini-review. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on this one. I'll try it out tonight. It looks like it would be a fun aircraft to fly. Thank you, Bob
  3. What do you think of it Alan? It looks good from your pictures. According to Wikipedia, this aircraft was pretty fast.

    I like Carenado and I always have. I probably have almost every aircraft that they have ever made. I usually fly the larger airliners and right now I'm stuck on the Aerosoft CRJ, but I'll get in the mood to fly GA and I'll stay on it for months. I have several GA throttle setups that I bought from Precision Flight Controls, so I can change from the Cessna 172 type to the Beechcraft KingAir type pretty quickly. I'll be back flying my corporate jets pretty soon. I can feel it.

    Very nice! Is that beauty Carenado's?
  6. I'm assuming that it is still working with the IXEG 733 not listed also, correct?
  7. Honestly, I have no doubt that CaptainSim has the ability to produce a very fine study level 757, if they are dedicated to doing that. They have been around for so long and have put together some good aircraft during that time. Their textures and modeling are absolutely top-of-the-line. If they can bring their systems modeling to the level of their texture modeling, a CaptainSim 757 would be really impressive.
  8. Noel, that's a beautiful story and a wonderful memory of your father. It's obvious to me that you are comfortable writing and I'm telling you, with a talent to tell stories like the one you have shared with us, you should write a book. It would be a great read. Noel, when I was about 19 in Ohio back in '69, my parents bought me an old Dodge for $100 so I could use it to look for work. Well, one evening I told Mom and Dad that I was going to go to the library and return some books, which was my intention. When I got to the library, I saw some people sitting around close to the night book deposit. When I walked up to drop the books off, they said hello and I asked them what they were doing. They said that they were resting and were getting ready to go to the highway and get back to hitchhiking to California. They were hippies that had come from New York City. Well, I told them to get in the car and I would take them to California, which I did. I called my Mom once I got to Nevada and let her know what I was doing. Obviously, she didn't think it was a very good idea and told me to bring that car back. I ended up in San Fransisco in the Height-Ashbury district where I stayed for around eight months. My Dad and I argued a lot when I was a teen and I never realized just how much he loved me back then. He decided to come with Mom, all the way to San Fransisco, not even knowing exactly where I was, to try to persuade me to come home. I happened to see them walking along the street and I ran over to them. I never knew until I was taking care of my mother in her last years. She told me that when my Dad saw me he started crying. She said that he was so happy to see me that he told her that he was going to buy me a new car when I got home. She wisely persuaded him not to and I continued to drive old junkers when I got back. As an adult, I was able to mend my relationship with my Dad and Mom after being so reckless with it, and we enjoyed a lot of good years together before he passed. I cherish their memory. That relationship described in your story that you have with your father is golden. I'm sure with your mother also. We're lucky guys Noel, and not being "religious" at all, I can assure you that you will see him again in the future. I have no doubt in my mind that I will see my parents again. Thank you for sharing that beautiful story of your Dad. All the time that I'm reading it, I was thinking that this guy is no stranger to the wilderness. Then you said that he was kind of a "Mountain Man" and probably you didn't even realize how much so until you spent that time with him. I'm sure that if I heard all those coyotes howling that close, I would have had to change my drawers. Bob
  9. Enjoyed the review, David. Thank you. I have this Corsair but I have been so much into airliners lately with FSLA320, TFDi 717 and Aerosoft's CRJ 7 and 900 that I haven't even installed it yet. I might go ahead and try it out now after seeing this video. Bob
  10. Outstanding! Thank you for one of the best aircraft available anywhere. Bob
  11. P3D v4

    That's very fair. I appreciate it.
  12. P3D v4

    Ryan, what will be the best way to contact Sean? I will GLADLY pay for these upgrades. This is wonderful news. I hope it means that Carla is still doing well. Thank you, Bob
  13. Sarcasm fits so nice on us, don't it Alan.
  14. Yeah...beta. "Beta" be willing to wait a life time. I expect by the time they release it for P3Dv4, we will have been using P3Dv10.5 for about a year.
  15. Very impressive. Almost futuristic.
