Airplanes On FS9---Performance Reliable?

Tue Sep 19, 2006 5:48 am

How reliable or real is the performance of every aircraft other than the originals (737, 747, 777, etc).
Are the downloaded Airbuses and others performance accurate?

Only payware would be even slightly reliable, the feel and sensation are completely off obviously becayse you cant remotely simulate that without a full motion simulator.
You can edit CFG files to get the correct fuel usage and stuff aswell.

The "realism" of FS aircraft, payware and freeware alike, is horrendous.

X-Plane involves much more accurate modelling of aerodynamics, but isn't perfect.
Good flying

If you want, try the project tupolev tu-154... thats realism! (Anyone know cryllic?)  Big grin

Crud in = Crud out
It's the same with both sims. A badly designed plane will not fly accurately in either sim. What I think can be made more accurate in MSFS is aircraft systems. PMDG are the prime example of that.
The rest is up to the datatables to make the plane fly correctly.

Xplane has an aerodynamic engine that allows anything to attempt to fly. Build it in Planemaker and test it out. I'm more into making real aircraft fly by the manuals and the tables in them.
The conveyor belt plane will fly
