    Chuck's Guides for Prepar3d/FSX Aircraft

    I'll keep that in mind!

    great guide-747-400

    I'm glad some folks found my guide useful. If you have suggestions for improvements or requests for other modules, I'm all ears.

    The 787 looks quite tempting indeed... I haven't seen many reviews about the QW 787, except maybe those who don't really go into the technical side of things (system fidelity, flight model accuracy, that sort of thing...). Is it any good?

    Two new guides are up. PMDG 777-200LR http://www.mudspike.com/chucks-guides-p3d-pmdg-777-200lr/ PMDG 747-400 http://www.mudspike.com/chucks-guides-p3d-pmdg-747-400/

    By the way, do you guys have any ideas/suggestions for improvements? (formatting, certain aspects better explained, etc.)

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. I appreciate it. I'm currently torn between two modules for my next guide: the PMDG 747 or their 777. Which one should I go for first?

  9. Hi all! I've made some guides to help newcomers familiarize themselves with some of the popular aircraft add-ons for P3D and I thought I'd share them here with you. I don't pretend to be an expert, so keep in mind that these guides aren't perfect and may simplify some things. I tried to cross-check as much as possible most of the procedures with real aircraft manuals and online pilot tutorials, so if you spot any mistakes, feel free to send me a private message and I'll have them fixed when I can.

    PDF flight tutorial

    Thanks for the kind words. Ironically enough, I was saying that because I've noticed that I'm known for my DCS guides and not really my P3D/FSX guides. I've sunk a good amount of hours in DCS, but I think the guides I've spent to the most time doing in term of man-hours are mainly the civil aviation ones (737, A320, Q400, MD-82), which are the ones that are the known/read the least. Different crowds, I guess ;)

    Aerosoft Douglas DC-8 released!

    I'm eager to see video reviews of this aircraft and to hear more about it before I buy it. I'm a huge fan of the 707 and DC-8.
  13. @rsrandazzo Thank you for clarifying. I appreciate it.
  14. If that option is available... I will do that for sure. I was just not sure whether we had that possibility or not.
  15. Still, I want to know if there will be an option to buy the 747-8i without having to buy into the subscription service (meaning that presumably the EFB will not work with that option). I am interested in a simulation with fixed costs. I have no interest in buying into a monthly "pay-to-fly" subscription fee on top of that fixed cost. I don't mean to question their pricing or their business model at all.... but if PMDG could potentially decide to force their aircraft to use Navigraph updates just to operate the FMC without having the option of having at least one AIRAC cycle plugged in...
