    I made a decision a few years ago not to attempt to become a “Breaking News” blog site. I just don’t have time and I’m just one guy. Most of the flight sim related content I write about either has to do with my own involvement in the hobby or news/information about products I own and use in my sim. Sometimes I comment on newsworthy items within my writings as I often have opinions regarding these things. After all, my experience in this hobby goes back a long, long time. The title of this writing is called “FSLabs Making News – Once Again”. If you search my blog site using FSLabs, you’ll find two articles. You can read article one here, and article two here if you desire. In each of these articles I more or less refer to the news from earlier in the year where FS Labs got caught inserting malware into their Airbus A320 aircraft. This action according to FS Labs was in an effort to catch would be software pirates. Before I continue any further, allow me just to state that I’m well aware software piracy runs amuck not only in the flight sim community, not only in the gaming community…but is an issue across the board for all software developers. While more needs to be done to stop this behavior and bring those who commit these crimes to justice, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about this. The steps FS Labs initially took was very much the wrong way. About FSLabs FlightSimLabs (FSLabs for short) is an payware, add-on aircraft developer who has been around for a few years. One of their first products was the Concorde-X. The Concorde-X was developed for Microsoft FSX and was quite popular. Those who have been around for a while may remember the Concorde was a featured, default aircraft in FS9, but removed in FSX. Since the Concorde-X product, FSLabs have been working on developing near study level replicas of the Airbus A320 and A319 aircraft. It’s their A320 product which first got FSLabs into a bit of hot water with the FS Community. The Malware Debacle As I mentioned earlier, FSLabs first ruffled some feathers in the FS Community back in the February 2018 timeframe. The story was so big that even bloggers, writers who would never even think to write about flight sim news covered it. Here’s one of those articles. In a nutshell, FSLabs wrote a bit of code which installed a “Chrome Password Dump” which was hidden inside the A320 installer. This bit of malware could extract users personal information which is stored within the Chrome browser including passwords and billing information. The founder of FSLabs (Lefteris Kalamaras) did apologize for the including such intrusive code in the A320 download and stated “I want to reiterate and reaffirm that we as a company and as flight simmers would never do anything to knowingly violate the trust that you have placed in us by not only buying our products but supporting them and FlightSimLabs”. He further stated “While the majority of our customers understand that the fight against piracy is a difficult and ongoing battle that sometimes requires drastic measures, we realize that a few of you were uncomfortable with this particular method which might be considered a bit heavy handed on our part.” My Opinion Thus Far As many others have pointed out in various articles and blog postings, the action taken by FSLabs and its founder Lefteris Kalamaras is disturbing, highly unethical and while I’m not a lawyer, I would even think this action borders on illegal behavior. While much of the flight sim community compares FSLabs and their A320 to the likes of PMDG and their lineup of Boeing study level aircraft, with the right apologies and follow-thru, I personally could have considered giving them a second chance. After all, forgiveness right? But as the weeks and months from the initial news regarding the malware unfolded, it has once again thrust FSLabs into the news and once again it appears they are not doing the things they need to do to win trust within the community. PR Debacle One might think if FSLabs were sincere in their apologies they would just ensure everything they did going forward was 100% positive within the flight sim community. They would keep their heads down, develop the finest Airbus products available and provide awesome support to the community. Then hope, pray and beg for the forgiveness from the community. But no…in recent days two additional little bugbears have popped up which have further ruffled feathers in the community. The first installment of how bad can you run a flight sim add-on company was how FSLabs and their founder have been threatening some folks over in the Reddit community and perhaps other bloggers/writers. The second major mess-up appears to be in how their A320 installer is writing a cmdhost.exe file under the Windows system32\ and SysWOW64 directories. While I’m not an application developer, I do understand enough about the Windows operating system to know that these directories are no place for third party installers to write anything to. From previously published articles it appears this action was a necessary part of its eSellerate infrastructure and provides communications between the eSellerate servers and the FSLabs installed product in an activation interface scenario. Final Thoughts on this matter Again, it’s not my intent to report news. I would much rather spend my time flying and writing about all the wonderful things taking place in the flight sim community. However, as I often receive emails asking for assistance and advice related to various subjects in the hobby, I felt I wanted to at the very least share my thoughts on all this. The very sad part of this entire story is FSLabs have done a remarkable job (from all that I’ve heard) on developing a near study level Airbus A320. I actually would have loved to own this product, but as I previously stated, I will NEVER purchase anything from FlightSimLabs. Of course, I don’t believe my reluctance in purchasing their products will bankrupt them. However, while I will not outright say you should avoid purchasing their products, I will just encourage you to conduct your own research and just be very careful if you do decide to purchase any FSLabs product. Are you an Airbus Fan? I’ve got to admit that my passion for tubeliners isn’t in the Airbus camp. I’m a Boeing guy. But while I may prefer Boeing to Airbus, I do enjoy from time to time flying the smaller Airbus A318/A319 & the A320/A321 aircraft variants as this opens up a totally new and different world to virtual aviation. It allows me to simulate airline operations for the likes of Frontier, EasyJet and many others who are 100% operating Airbus aircraft. Or it allows me to simulate the Airbus operations for American and British Airways who both operate a mix of Boeing and Airbus aircraft within their fleet. The wait will soon be over as I mentioned a few weeks ago, the Aerosoft A318/A319 & A320/A321 series of aircraft will be released for Prepar3D v4. I owned these for FSX and earlier versions of P3D and have missed them in P3D v4. Aerosoft is a software developer we can trust to not only develop and support a quality aircraft simulation product but do it without playing silly buggers with us in the process. The Aerosoft Airbus series is scheduled to release on 26 June and once I make my purchase, download and install…you can expect a full review here on my blog. Of course, as it’s been over a year since I’ve operated an Airbus aircraft, I’ll need some time to come up to speed on them. But hopefully it’s just like riding a bike. As always, thanks for reading. Look for my blog report from the first leg of my WorldFlight GBS 2018 tour to drop on Wednesday. It was a fun flight from Sydney to Cairns and as I type this, I’m actually flying leg 2 from Cairns over to the western corner of Australia and the city of Broome. I hope you’ll return to Planes, Trains and Automobiles (and Farming too) to catch up on all the action. Happy Simming!

    The organizers of WorldFlight, have prepared the 2018 version of their world tour to raise money for various charities around the world. Each November, teams from around the globe participate in this annual week long event. Many of these same teams, stream their flights on Twitch & YouTube from one of many full-sized flight simulators around the world which have been setup. Over my 35+ year history with computer based flight simulation, I’ve circumnavigated the globe many times and in many different aircraft. In 2010, I embarked on an “Around the World” journey in a single engine Mooney Bravo which consisted of 75 individual flight legs, spread out over approx. 45 days. The total trip mileage was 35,816 nm and consisted of 201.5 flight hours. If you are interested, you can view my trip log here. I’ve flown the Worldflight tour (on my own) many times. Last year (2017) I completed it in the PMDG Boeing 737-800. As it was just a “for fun” flight, I didn’t keep a flight log but it was a lot of fun just the same. For 2018, I’m going to attempt to do a better job with keeping a flight log, showcasing on my blog site. Just like the old days! As it would be impossible for a single pilot to fly the complete route, during the actual even timeline…I’m planning to start my journey in early to mid June. The general purpose of doing this is to help raise awareness for the official event in November and expose as many of my viewers to this awesome charity event. Unlike last year where I used the same aircraft type to complete the tour, this year I’ll use a variety of aircraft from my virtual hangar including both Boeing and Airbus aircraft. The Boeing types will include 737, 747, 777 and 787. Airbus will be a A319, A320 and A321 variants. In addition, you can expect to see a variety of airline liveries throughout the journey. As the tour begins in Sydney, Australia…I’ll kick the tour off with Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin Australia. In some (perhaps most) instances, the two airports which make up each leg may not have real-world flights connecting them to each other. In cases like this, I’ll use my own imagination to determine what airline would make the most sense to operate and which aircraft type. A lot of the decisions driving this will be the availability of aircraft liveries. But I’ll strive to do my best to keep a variety throughout the journey. The same applies for airport scenery. While I own a lot of different airport sceneries, I don’t own all the airports we’ll be visiting during this tour. If I can find quality freeware airports that won’t break my sim or cause issues, I’ll consider using them. But in some cases, default scenery will just have to be used. The 2018 WorldFlight Tour begins in Sydney, Australia and travels a westerly direction (see map below). This tour will consist of 46 legs, covering an approx. 36,153 nm while visiting over 25 different countries. I’m really not sure how long it will take me to complete this tour. Perhaps I’ll try to wrap the last few flight legs around the same time as the actual event is taking place. It might be fun to fly the last leg or two on VATSIM at the same time the actual event is taking place. But only time will tell if this will be possible. You can follow along with my progress visiting my blog site and the 2018 WorldFlight Page I’ve setup. Thanks for reading and bon voyage.

    Just a quick update on how things are going at my end, First of all I had to slap one of my nurses for being a bit forward! I wouldn't have minded so much if it wasn't for his beard!!! Lol I've actually managed to, kind of, play FS! Mrs. D. set me up (started the game and picked the map I wanted. She did some buying and selling of equipment for me and left me to it. Well several hours later I'm fuming mad because I left it on 15x speed (I've no idea how it got changed to 15x but Mrs. D. swears it wasn't her!) and all of my crops were withering because I just wasn't fast enough at getting things done so a quick restart and some minor adjustments saw me playing well into the night. I think I turned it all off at about 6am but I had been snoring well for a time before that. I mainly used CoursePlay and hired workers to do all the work and that teleport cheat to help get around. Ian reminded me of an older bit of tech I have from Logitech, it's a G13 which is basically a multi-function button box with a thump joystick. So with a little practice I've just finished another good couple of hours on two of my current fav. maps, MavericksFinal V4 (I think) and The Valley The Old Farm. I basically have a mini joystick and the choice of one button at a time from the main keys to control everything. I know what I wrote earlier (about slapping a nurse) sounds like a joke or something but it was actually true. About two weeks ago while "he" was settling me to bed his co-worker went to ask Mrs. D. what meds I still needed when, in a very unnerving voice he asked if their was anything else I needed (while slipping his hand under the quilt and onto my thigh) I have never screamed so loud in my life!!! I'm not homophobic or even a little put off by same sex couples but to suddenly be confronted with a predator type of guy who has just spent the last 20 minutes or so showering me, I was a little upset (to say the least!) Mrs. D. came running like hell not knowing what to think might be going on to find me almost falling out of bed and "him" crouched against the wall with his hands over his ears! He ran out the house and away and it took me two days to calm down enough to talk about it. I am sorry if this is not politically correct but I've never been in a vulnerable position like this before and didn't know what else to do, what's worse is I still don't really know what to do if it happened again? Well that's all for now. Keep Digging John.

    I'm really looking forward to your worldflight blogs and was even considering following your lead but in the smaller planes that I enjoy. Thanks for the DCS World tips, I'll definitely take a look at it and perhaps even get to blow shizz up (not my favourite hobby but still worth having a go Lol) John.

    BJD...thanks for the comment and thanks for reading. I hope you'll enjoy the WorldFlight tour blog postings soon to be released. The first leg will be released on Wednesday and the second on Saturday. You might be interested in DCS World. The DCS platform is free via Steam and it comes with a few aircraft. One is the TF-51D Mustang which is a WWII and Korean War fighter-bomber aircraft. There are other aircraft models you can purchase as DLC and also regional maps. Most of these are study level aircraft and best of all...they allow you to shoot and blow stuff up. 🙂

    Once again Jerry, you have provided a really interesting and informative blog which I've thoroughly enjoyed reading and have learned something new to boot. To be honest with you my passion lies with smaller single or twin prop birds so the chances of me buying these planes is extremely small. My personal favourites are WWll planes (from either side!) and I would love to find some "study ready" models from that era. I just think they give you a more "hands on" style of gameplay with less automated systems such as auto-pilot, auto-take off/landing etc. etc. Once again Jerry, thank you for a great blog. John.

    Sounds like a bloody frightening thing to happen mate I hope you have reported him as he could do this to some one else who might not have your screaming abilities. Very pleased to hear you have managed to get some serious farming time in👍

    Before I start this review. Please allow me to get the fine print out of the way. The product I am reviewing was purchased by me and for my own personal use. I receive absolutely no compensation of any form (cash, credit, discounts, promises) for reviewing this product. I have not contacted, nor have I been contacted by the vendor to provide this product review. The opinions expressed (good or bad) are my own, your mileage may vary. OK…with the legal disclaimer out of the way, allow me to get started. Like many of you, I purchased the QualityWings 787 for P3D v4 within minutes of it being released. I’ve personally been anxious about this aircraft release from the time I first learned of it. However, I’ve often been critical of QualityWings for their decision to first release this aircraft for FSX and FSX: SE. But I’m also man enough to admit that I’m biased as I’ve not thought much about FSX since the early days of P3D v3.x and certainly have no interest in FSX now that the 64 bit P3D v4 is available and performing so well. Study Level She’s Not A question which is popping up just about everywhere has to do with whether or not the QW787 is a study level aircraft similar to any of the PMDG or FSLabs aircraft. For the record, I don’t currently own (nor will I ever) any FSLabs aircraft. The reason for this can be summed up here. But I do own the PMDG Boeing 737, 747 and 777 and enjoy flying each and every one of them. I can certainly confirm the QW787 can’t be compared to the likes of the PMDG Boeing lineup, but she’s still a joy to fly. Study vs Quality I make no bones about the fact that I’m NOT a real world pilot. I suppose some might wonder how I can spend over 35 years flying computer based sims, enjoy them passionately and not have any interest in real world aviation. Simply put, when I was younger and had more time, I didn’t have the money. A decade or so ago, I had the money…but just not enough time. Now days…well, as I’m older the cost of learning to fly is much more expensive and I suppose I just have a lot of other interests in my life. At least this is my story and I’m going to stick to it. While others may see PMDG as a developer of study level aircraft, I see them as developers of quality simulation aircraft. Some folks might not see the difference between these two things…but I certainly do. As an example, I really have no idea if the PMDG 737 performs like the real thing. I believe it does as that’s what others say…but my only real experience comes from riding a few thousand miles a year in one for work related trips. Likewise, I have no idea if the PMDG 747 performs like the real thing. But from my point of view in my nice business class seat, I’ll just order another glass of wine and I’m a happy passenger. The point I’m making here is while I do enjoy the level of detail and the tasks which must be carried out to be able to simulate flight in a PMDG 737, 747 or 777….I really have nothing to compare that to other than the fact that I appreciate the level of quality which goes into a PMDG aircraft. But I’m starting to digress and this article is reading more like a review of PMDG so let me get back on track. The QualityWings 787 Dreamliner at this point in time, is not study level and it’s also not on the same level of quality as that of the PMDG models I own. But I believe it can be. Bugs I honestly can’t remember the last time I purchased a flight sim add-on aircraft which was 100% bug free on day of release. Most likely the reason I can’t remember is because in the history of flight simulation (and I have just about been around the entire time) no aircraft that I’m aware of has ever been released 100% bug free. Yes, the QW787 has a few bugs. Most that I’ve discovered I would classify as minor annoyances, but a few certainly qualify to be labeled and identified as major. Fortunately, I’ve personally not discovered anything I would label as a show-stopper. Here are a few of the bugs I’ve discovered. ActiveSky and WX Radar CTD – When using both ActiveSky for P3D v4 (ASP4) and using the onboard wx radar features of the QW787, a CTD or Crash to Desktop can occur. While some may identify this as a show-stopper bug, the CTD can be avoided by simply not using the wx radar features. QW’s are aware of this and working on a fix. This is the only bug which has caused me any issues which I couldn’t overcome. VNAV Issues – Some folks are experiencing various issues related to VNAV mostly during the descent. LNAV Issues – Consisting of the aircraft attempting turns too early and/or overshooting turns altogether. Altitude Constraints on SID/STARS – I’ve experienced both while flying the QW787. If I’m not mistaken, Qualitywings have recognized these issues as bugs and are working on a fix. As of a few days ago, the ETA for the hotfix was in approx. 2 weeks. Bottom Line I’m extremely happy with the purchase and I look forward to the hotfix patch which hopefully will resolve all the issues. I’ve spent several hours flying this beautiful aircraft on mostly short hops of no more than 2-3 hours. The QW787 Dreamliner is a new favorite in my hangar. I’ll leave you with a few recent images of this beautiful aircraft from some of my recent flights. I’ll also return with an updated post once the hotfix has been released. But if you are looking to add a Boeing 787 Dreamliner to your fleet for P3D v4, then look no further than the QualityWings version. I believe you’ll be pleased you did. Until next time… Happy Dreams J The post QualityWings 787 for Prepar3d v4 – First Impressions appeared first on PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES - And Farming Too!. View the original article...........

    Well hot off the heels of YouTube changing Monetization requirements, and then changes to the way Subs and the notifications are calculated and used, it would seem YouTube is experimenting with more changes to take away our freedom of choice when it comes to the content we wish to see! It has been reported, and there is a new wave of rage coming from many YouTube Content creators about the apparent changes to/or incorporation of new algorithms that makes the subscription feed no longer list items in a chronological order. Read more below! So it would seem that recently a YouTuber asked about why there seemed to be a subtle change to the subscription feed, whereby the subscription feed was seemingly no longer following in a chronological order. Well Team YouTube replied to the user with the following tweet: Right so why is this starting to provide a wave of opposition and angst amoung the YouTube Content Creators? Well quite simple really. YouTube is now, with this new algorithm, placing content in your subscription feed that they ‘think’ you would prefer to watch, because of course we are all mindless google fanbois that will do whatever we are told. So while I am subbed to Eustace Pharmer, and therefore obviously want to see his video releases in my sub feed, there is a significant chance that this may not happen, certainly not chronologically, because the fools at YouTube will try and push content that I (and you) don’t want to watch, and if you bring out the tin-foil hat – they will be pushing the large format channel videos that bring in the most ad-revenue! There was an analogy put forward by ‘I Hate Everything’ (@IHE_OFFICIAL) on twitter, which was Imagine subscribing to a magazine, but then getting a letter from them saying that they’ve decided for you what you actually want to see. It’s like ordering a Nintendo magazine but being delivered a Playstation one. Now that is quite true. YouTube claims that the changes are currently only applied to like 1% of their user base, but like with many of these tests they do, it is more than likely only on the bigger channels, and therefore the impacts would perhaps not be as evident as to the smaller channels – and in this case I still mean channels with 1000’s of subs not just small ones with a few hundred like ours. While it may not be in effect changing many feeds at the moment, the fact that it is being looked at and tested is a little worrying indeed. This is something all Content Creators and subscribers need to be aware of. For instance, for a channel like DuckzorlyGaming, if this came into effect, would our channel videos be shown at all in our subscribers feeds, or just occassionally? Would our subscribers then drop the sub altogether because they figure that no videos are coming up in my feed, so he mustn’t be making any content. So yet again the behemoth that is YouTube (well Google) is trying to take away the last untouched area of the YouTube area and take away our choice even more. I await the chorus of how many more people will now drop YouTube and move to Twitch! Thanks for reading! Note:Original article was published on Newsweek, and the images from the twitter feeds comments were taken from this article after being verified on each users twitter feed. View the full article

    Article or Review Author Wonko I have always enjoyed playing FPS games especially after playing Battlefield 2142 many years ago, and since that first game of online mayhem I played many many hours of COD and all its variants as well as most of the Battlefield series. But I got fed up with some of the decisions the game makers made and seriously fed up with the attitude and hacking from quite a large part of the gaming community to the extent that I basically have not really played any since the early days of Battlefield 4, just the occasional foray back in to BF3. For me although these games are FPS I still liked to think and play tactically and try and use the terrain to my advantage rather than just gun and run but the games have never really allowed you to do this effectively until possibly now with BF5 on the horizon (October 2018). These guys in the second video talk about the cool stuff we can do in this new version of the BF series I love the idea of squad play with the added befit of being able to prepare proper defences and move heavy equipment around on the battle ground, I know we are a Sim game community but if anyone is interested in joining a PC-SG squad to play some war simulation instead of ploughing a field then lets me know I'll grab my rifle and park the JCB in the barn for a few hours {title } Game version Star rating0 Log Errors Mod or Map Features Required mods Suggested mods Pros Cons Summery View full article

    During my usual nightly routine of watching YouTube Videos, I came across this one. It shows how they used Blender to make vehicles in the new Farm Sim platform, Cattle and Crops. If you do not know what Blender is...a free 3d computer graphics software program. I have really been trying to learn this . The learning curve is really steep and by no means can come anywhere close, to what these guys do. You may have visited my YT page and saw the playlist Blender, that is all I can do right now. I just thought you might enjoy seeing how it is done, and how difficult it is. https://youtu.be/cHjf-YmIBCs

    Well guess who's back, back again? I guess some explaining for my absense is in order, I still don't know everything that happened but here's the gist of where I've been. As most of you know I've been disabled for a number of years now but recently my health deteriated quite drastically with me suffering a number of strokes and a minor heart attack. Before all of this I had tried to keep myself as fit as possible but afterwards I was basically bed bound and this led to me catching an infection called "Cellulitus" (sp?). This is for most people a minor condition that is treated with anti-biotics but because of my circumstances it didn't get caught until it had gone deeper and caused me to contract sepsis/septisemia. Now this little beauty is lethal if not treated quick enough so I was rushed into hospital and put straight into an induced coma while they fixed me. Now this is where things get a bit confusing to me, all I really remember is waking up in hospital and feeling really hungry (I have lost 4 stone in weight since this all began) Now I had piled the beef on lately so losing that much hasn't harmed me any, in fact if you need to lose weight quick I can thouroughly reccommend a few weeks in intensive care. Anyway to cut a boring story short I'm slowly recovering and am now out of bed (with the help of two nurses) and can move myself around in my wheelchair quite badly but at least I can get about. I have been practicing my typing and can now do about 1 word every 3 minutes or so but I'm getting there. Obviously I haven't been able to play any games as yet but I have been following the live streems as best I can even though it drives me mad not being able to join in. Well that's about it really, Ian got his papers (finally) and has gone to be a soldier for a while (12 years) I'm so proud of him and he looks awesome in his uniform but I have lost my right hand so to speak. I'm coping fine without him and he talks to my as often as he can but I do miss his off the wall ideas for helping me (like the glove he designed to allow me to use my G27 without touching it!) Unfortunately this has broke and I'm going to have to wait until he gets some leave to fix it for me. I can't think of anything else to write and Mrs. D. is waiting for me to change the dressings on my legs (result of the Cellulitus is big open wounds on my legs (it's a skin infection!). John.

    Fixed the sell trigger at 84 Lumber to accept boards. Added Enhanced Chickens by GtX. Added Grazing Mod by Reallogger. Lowered view distance from 110 to default 80 to help with FPS. Removed hay as a material in the upright silage silo and allow unused silage to be dumped back in.

    Due to a slight server rollback, field 7 is finished now and most of 8. The server saved before I finished 8 so I'll get on tomorrow and get the rest of it done.

    Ladies, Gentlemen and Children of all ages who absolutely love everything avgeek, the wait is over. Yes, QualityWings released their Prepar3d v4 version of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Wednesday. Earlier in the week, news broke that QW had lifted the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) with their beta test team and images, videos and discussions began appearing all over the interwebz. The assumption was the QW787 release was imminent. It’s been a long and winding road According to my blog site search engine, the first mention of the QW 787 Dreamliner in any of my writings was back on 22 June 2017. Later in 2017 from a hotel room in Orlando, I followed up with my comments regarding the fact QW opted to release the 787 for FSX (boxed) and FSX: Steam Edition before any version of Prepar3D. This was somewhat of a head scratcher for me especially since P3D v4 had been out for about 5 months at this point and other aircraft developers (PMDG, A2A and others) had managed to release their aircraft which were originally developed for FSX and older versions of P3D with P3D v4 installers. But oh well…we would just have to be patient. The Un-official Race I’ll admit that over the years I’ve been slightly critical of QualityWings. I’m not the only one that has wondered “what the heck are these guys thinking” when it comes to the decisions they’ve made. I often speculated just how long it would take them to release their 787 for P3D v4 and even felt it would be well after Aerosoft released their Airbus A318/A319 & A320/A321 product for v4. I guess it’s a good thing that I didn’t actually wager any money against this bet, as I would have lost. The guys at QualityWings have beat Aerosoft by country mile. As I recently discussed, the Aerosoft busses won’t be released until 26 June. So congratulations QW. Not a First Impressions Article I’m going to wait a few days before I write my official “first impressions” piece. I feel I need some more time in the aircraft before I’m able to write a fair and balanced piece. But I’ll certainly share two screenshots and a bit of commentary from my inaugural flight last evening. I plan to spend some of this upcoming long, holiday weekend in the Dreamliner and will have a much better sense of just how good (or bad) this aircraft is. But I can tell you this much. My initial impression of this is QualityWings have lived up to using the word “Quality” in their brand. I’m impressed. Cruising at FL360 enroute from KDFW to KDEN. As I’ve discussed before, I really don’t have the time to fly a lot of long-haul flights. So while the Dreamliner truly was designed for long-haul and even ultra long-haul flights, most of my use will most likely be fictional flights of no more than 2-3 hours in length. The “Sporty” style of the B787 Flight Deck is impressive. While this aircraft shouldn’t be compared to a study level PMDG aircraft, it truly isn’t bad. There’s still enough work that needs to be done to ready this aircraft for flight to keep me 100% interested. I’m fairly confident, the QW 787 Dreamliner will get used often. One Small Issue Ok…well, perhaps it really isn’t that small. Especially considering I did experience a CTD (crash to desktop) on my inaugural flight. One flight, one CTD…I guess one could say it might be a bigger issue. But after reaching cruise altitude, I was messing about with the weather radar features and while doing so experienced the CTD. This was the first CTD I’ve ever experienced in P3D v4 and certainly the first CTD on the new Beast v5 gaming machine. But I see absolutely no reason to panic. I’m fairly certain this product will be like most others….there will be a few quirks that will get resolved in an update patch/fix soon. The good news, I run auto-save via FSUIPC. FSUIPC performs an auto-save of my flight, complete with all aircraft configuration settings every 15 minutes. I was able to re-launch P3D and resume my flight (just like nothing ever happened) from the latest save. OK…well I must get to work now. I quickly wrote this piece while easing into my Thursday morning in the office. The coffee is gone and I must go find more or today will be a long and difficult day. Until next time….I’ll be dreaming of my next Dreamliner flight. Jerry The post QualityWings Boeing 787 Dreamliner appeared first on PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES - And Farming Too!.
