just to let you all know; I just received my copy of the new justplanes dvd on the Silkways 1L-76TD and I thought it was really cool....a bit tough to understand the pilots but it was very unique and the glass nose landing views rocked....just thought you would be interested. -Josh

the engine sound is clear however there doesnt appear to be a huge idle-TO power range....as in the noise doesn't really rise as much as I thought it would....I'll tell yah though it really has this "soviet" feeling to the plane where none of the instruments are in english (russian rather) and its a just a maze of stuff....the engines are really creepy sounding too, a whine not heard in the US really. On that note I would tell anyone to buy it because its interesting and the views are pretty neat.

Quoting PILOTALLEN (Reply 2): the engine sound is clear however there doesnt appear to be a huge idle-TO power range..
I'll briefly explain the reason for this... The engines are running on T/Off power for 2-3 minutes before they release the brakes, we didn't want to let the program run for minutes with nothing going on so we cut to a few seconds before they start the roll...
