    Flight level change and VNAV mode.

    Exactly what I do in the real world.

    Bugs disappearing?

    You could fly at 300 kt or higher and still have plenty of bug problems, I see it first hand all the time. That being said, not sure I would spend time trying to simulate this....

    -8 nose pitching up on the takeoff roll

    Have you check in the manuals. Is your power, takeoff weight, and CG within the normal envelope? If so, then for a given correct trim value the aircraft shouldn’t rotate this way. If not, then there is your answer.
  4. It’s interesting how Boeing created this logic preventing APU inflight starts on the 748. Most airplanes will either have a restriction or limitation written in the manuals, but it could still be started.

    CPDLC explained

    Not sure how familiar you are with 121 Ops, but some airlines use 8.5 x 11 and thousands of these are printed daily. So you might chuckle quite a bit.

    CPDLC explained

    Most airlines still print releases, however some are already transitioning to EFB releases. That being said, printers are still heavily used by most if not all airlines throughout the flight. If the point is to be close to realism, this would be a nice capability to have.
  7. Exactly, some will like it, some will not. Some use the Sim for procedures training or IFR practice and some use the Sim to get as real as it gets, including something like GFO. I personally won’t use GFO, but I can definitely understand why some will.
  8. The flaw here is that we all can use different checklists, just like every dofferent airline does. The panel state left by person x is going to be different depending of the checklist being used. Unlike an airline where everyone uses the same checklist so there is a level of expectancy of where every switch should be.
  9. Not sure how much would I use it. Wait and see.... Hopefully there will be a new aircraft in the works after the 747-8.

    Pitch when at cruising altitude

    Ask as much as you like.

    Can someone tell me a good landing rate :)

    Except that some aircraft will log hard landings, based on G-load and/or vertical speeds at ground contact (777 being one of them). Life is still good if reported, an inspection can be required.

    Wingflex - Time for a review?

    Couldn’t agree more. This is just a flight sim, don’t care how good it is, it just won’t be exactly like the real thing (especially for outside visuals). Priorities in what I look for a sim are Performance, Handling Qualities, and Systems. If these are as close as it gets, fantastic! I personally don’t care much about how much a wing flexes, it doesn’t affect my experience in the cockpit.

    Wingflex - Time for a review?

    In flight test videos ARE accepted as data, however in this case is just an incomplete picture as stated numerous times above (weight, configuration, flight control inputs, etc). Hard to fix something when more than half of the story is missing.

    Don’t get discouraged about asking, this is a user to user forum and most times you will get your answers. There are all sorts of skill levels in here, some need more help than others.

    TrueGlass and RealLight on PMDG?

    Don’t see where in the OP is implied that PMDG is not capable of doing this. That being said, can’t wait for PMDG to do something with this type of effects.. I’m sure it will be top notch.
