767 VC

Tue May 09, 2006 10:50 am

Is there anyone out there that knows of a good virtual cockpit for a 767, preferrably one made for the POSKY v4 offering. I didn't see one on AVSIM, but I very easily could have missed it.
Thanks!

If you really like the 767, you could buy the lds one. It as an excellent VC. As for a VC for the posky I don't know where you could get one.

looks like the answer is no:

Supposedly the POSKY member doing the VC left,

http://forum.projectopensky.com/index.php?showtopic=19045
As per the POSKY member "Terrence" on 5/4/06: "No current development on VC's for any of our previously released aircraft."

I'd say go for buying the Level-D 767. It is worth the money and the VC is good, but not as feature packed as the PMDG 747 VC.

To echo the other posts, save some lunch money and buy the Level D 767. Definetly an essential add-on.

POSKY have been taking ages to make the VC on the 767 v4, apart from their 767 FDE being simply crap (is yanking the yoke to one side or the other, to get a response from the ailerons, realistic?). So from personal experience and because it's one of the most realistic, complete packages and very high quality, get the Level-D 767. You won't regret it a single bit. You'll really love the VC, because it's 99% fully functional and pretty much each and every switch is clickable.

Yes. The LevelD VC is incredible. Frame-friendly, detailed as hell, and as you said, fully operational.

Plus, you can kick back and jumpseat for a bit on longer flights!

Well, looks like I need to save up a little in my piggy bank and get the Level D model. I did take a look at it on their site, and it looks VERY sharp.
And speaking of the flyability of the POSKY 767, it does take a LOT of stick input to get the thing to move, as I found out on a visual approach onto 22L at HNL (a very interesting approach, BTW).

That's also where the LDS 767 excels. It's very easy yet very realistic to fly, you don't need lots of stick/yoke input to make the control surfaces react. It's almost as if you were flying the real thing.
