  1. Late to the party! Now it seems I can justify the transition to P3D and enjoy my NGX even more soon. Thank you!!!

    which sim is best ?

    I am still running my rig from 2009 with FSX and all the ORBX goodies. The NGX runs flawlessly on my system and has just over 1800hrs on the 7377 with only a few (hangs or crashes) over the last 5 years. I am not going to change a thing until my system packs it in. If it aint broke, dont fix it. I keep my FS rig offline and only do updates via. Jumpdrive from a seperate laptop. I think this has helped keep my rig as stable as it has been over the years.

    Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

    I am really excited for this bird. I just hope that the sound set gets the attention it deserves. Those radials have such a great sound.

    I just opened my wallet to find the money I have set aside for this bird, is falling victim to moths. I can only hope I can give it to you before it turns to dust. Lol. Seeing as our (Canadian) bills are made of a plastic polymer, they may just might last a while longer. My patience however........ lol.

    Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

    I can fully understand why these projects take so much time to complete. I am a custom flight case builder, and for the most part, every case I design and build is very different and specific. In order to give my clients exactly what they want takes a lot of time in planning, layout and making sure every possible requirement is covered. Sometimes I spend hours at home finetuning a clients case design to make sure it meets all their needs. I can only imagine how much is involved in recreating a real life aircraft and it's structure, dynamics, technology, visual model and all the logic that really makes PMDG a sought after product. I strive and sometimes even take more time than I probably should, to make sure my clients get exactly what they want. In saying that, I am more than happy to wait for an absolutely mindblowing, detailed and accurate product that meets all my needs and standards. Quality takes time, and we all know the level of quality these guys put out. The amount of time taken to produce that level of quality may be vast, but I think we can all agree, the wait is worth it. Just my opinion.

    Hope we don't have to brush up our sextant skills for this bird. Lol I'll just stick to IFR, (I Follow Roads) in the 6 until I can pull my face away from the glass of the NGX long enough to get back to the roots.

    Angle of Attack Training

    Primary Flight controls was great! New narrator is pretty good. Must say, I miss Nick's narration however. I understand he is quite busy living the dream most of us wish could come to fruition! Secondary Flight controls is already available? Now that's what I call "stepping it up" well done guys! Can't wait for the videos of the Navigation/FMS systems.

    Is there any news on the DC6? It seems the the T7 announcement has hoovered all the interest from this georgous bird.
