  1. Does anyone here have the payware for this ? I have the free beta from way back and have the 737Ng (the only jet i have ) programmed with 9 Goflight modules . I would like to maybe get the payware verison to be able to program the Aerosoft Twin Extended buy the 777 from here and program it but all this stuff is supposed to be easy but never is .Would like to hear some comments and if i do get it can ask here for some help ---Was at the Vegas conference couple weeks ago and should of looked into it over there .

    Thanks Ryan and everyone else ,man she is a trip this one . I was high at Olleo , sloppy but got it in,need more practice . My young lad is Captain on one of these but it's always a fight for him to show me anything so i just come here now when i'm stuck.

    Where more or less are you fully configured Mark ,?as suggested here I'm using OLLEO and I'm trying to get used to the Hud , i've been going to PEPPI -its a little longer flight but gives me time to get this slippery thing slowed up .

    PAVD Valdez

    I just did a run using PEPPI had almost everything hanging out at OLLEO , seemed a little strange to be configured that high , but got in there a lot more in control ,I hand bombed it in by hand and went for the vasi's when i cleared to tops over the water in the bay.But she sure is one fine ride

    PAVD Valdez

    Well it’s nice to see that a lot also find this an interesting place .I always fly in the morning around 6 Am so there’s never any ATC and a lot of times its socked in solid and I can’t do the flight (active sky next ). Flying in there when the sun comes up is so nice . It’s not that I can’t get in, it’s that my flights are always a fight and never smooth and I’m behind the airplane so once you get behind you know what that’s like . Any way I took a bunch of notes and will keep trying .The hud I’m starting to get into, when you turn at Olleo and head straight down there’s a mountain peak to make sure you don’t clip ,and I’m not configured properly at OLLEO I think is the big problem. I’ll try it from PEPPI.

    PAVD Valdez

    Orbz had a real good sale on last month so i bought the payware Valdez .(real nice ) I'm a short hopper only so i've made maybe 15 flights from Whitehorse CYXY into PAVD and it's a real nice ride, but it would be a lot nicer if I'd get in there right, cause all my flights there are mess and sloppy. I have the latest airnav and using JON to transit. Has anyone have any tips to get in there like a real driver , cause it sure the heck ain't me

    Decision to make on 777

    Exactly Claude , And i have the free one and if i buy the 777 Steve at PollyPot told me it won't work its just for the 737 ngx so i'll have to buy it . The free one, the instructions were not near as good as they have now so i paid Steve to come in my rig with Team view to set it up .You get kinda spoilt not using the mouse all that much with the Interface, so i'm not sure what to do cause it's pretty serious cash to fly one aircraft and might stay just with the NGX .

    Decision to make on 777

    It's a really good tool Kyle , if you were to go to the conference in Vegas, Go-flight will be there and you'd really see how it works . This outfit from the UK called Pollypot made this Interface Tool that goes hand in hand with all the Go-flight modules. They told me to try the Beta and was only good with the NGX 737 but now they perfected it and let it go as payware and you can program almost any plane through it . Have a look at this video to get a glimpse. I hardly use the mouse for nothing and it's really cool flying the 737 NGX

    Decision to make on 777

    Umm might have to reconsider this bird. I have the beta Interface tool for the NGX but now i have to buy it to also put in the 777 the Interface tool and the 777 is 166 bucks Canadian so i got some serious thinking to do

    Decision to make on 777

    I wasn’t aware of the built in time acceleration ,and flight aware Dan I use almost daily and really like it .Ha and no one said anything about slamming this beast in a 7,500 foot runway so I must be good to go .Ill check out the short routes ,I’m sure I’ll use some—- thanks guys Louis

    Decision to make on 777

    My only jet is the NGX 737 ,if I decide to get the 777 how real is this for me - I’m not into long hauls ,1 to 2 hours max for a flight and that’s it for me .Also I like going into to strips about 7 to 8 thousand feet long and smaller airports like Fort Mac Murray - Yellowknife ,places like that and not demanding as much on frames compared to places like Friso and L.A. . Also I run about 8 or so Go-Flight modules that are set up with Polly pots Interface module so then I would be able to add this bird to it to be able to use the buttons and switches.So my question is with what i just told you, is this reality to fly this 777 or is it made for long hauls and wouldn’t be all that realistic ?

    Quik question on DES page

    He's real funny that way Neil, But me being a heavy duty mechanic when his '65 Mustang needs work guess who has to go fix it !!!! but that's Ok what ever --- i have friends who are jet jockeys on this bird so i just ask them, one of them is Jack Codwell who was a beta tester on this bird and is a friend of mine .Dan and Nick, i'm going through your tips

    Quik question on DES page

    I'm running Active sky next and to make it more real on the DES page it says "forecast " so let's say I'm landing at Calgary --CYYC - In Active Sky it will show the weather at different altitudes , i'm sticking in the winds at Level 240 -18000 and sometimes- 9000 or maybe- 3000 feet . Are you guys basically using this and how is it simulated? just curious . Guys ask me on team speak "is this the only jet you have" ? and i reply "yes cause i fly this thing like an 'ol lady why the heck would i buy anything else "? my kid is a captain on one of these and if he's walk in and see me fly this thing he's shut my computer off and tell me to get an other hobby . Can't for the life of my make a 1/2 desent Rnav approach, tried using Level change to go into Thunder bay CYQT and was 8 thousand feet over the runway, ha a disgrace to the flight sim community .Hope i see a couple of you in Vegas come June at the sim conference -
