In our Flight Sim group, one of our members has built a full size 737 cockpit...fully functional....I must admit that is what got me interested in tube liners. I also know a few 737 pilots that tried out his sim and were extremely impressed by the systems accuracy, so much so, they reckon they could use it as a training sim. His system uses the Ifly version because it has add ons which make it perfect for cockpit builders.
In regard to twins, I don't have my multi engine or instrument rating, but a friend whom is a flying instructor tried the Carenado Chieftain on my set up and was surprised how accurate most of the systems were. Carenado have been know for their looks, not necessarily for their fidelity....but they are getting better. But I will have a crack at the twins on MFS and do a few ILS approaches as well as some Instrument flying and see how they compare to the add ons in P3D.

What I personally love with P3D is:

+ by far less network traffic for scenery download again and again
+ no purchase of new HW necessary to get comparable experience
+ SW and addons for P3D very well-engineered, especially the latest developments after v4.4+
+ sophisticated scenario editor
+ huge amount of available HQ addons of all kind.
+ compared to some advantages of MSFS2020: the costs for new HW and SW (sceneries and aircraft) are too high for average users.
+++ What I really, really do prefer with P3D in particular: nearly _no_ gamblers here!
+/- All other pro's and con's have been already mentioned earlier by others.

BTW, I'm the one who says: It's important to have all surrounding objects and other POIs in their natural appearance and lighting at day/night/storm etc. P3D has it all. But I'm not the one who parks his plane aside and watches and admires the horse's crest moving in the winds stream. P3D is more a sophisticated sim/trainer as you already know. Nothing more to say about.

So I don't waste further time for ... I'm going to fly again by using LM P3D.
At this time also a big Thank You to all developers and other staff!

So I hope most of us will stay/continue with P3D. The _crew_ will surely investigate into further developments (e.g: sloped runways) as we support them in a manner they've earned.

Thanks for sharing this video. At the end, the video halts for some seconds. Is this also in the sim, a stutter like in P3D?

Hi.
The halts is due to recording process.

@choppa ,

Thanks for the follow up information.

You and your Flight Sim group might be interested in this MSFS [2020] A320 flight to check out some of the systems simulated.

Also, let me know your impression of the Twins you fly and the realism of the enroute weather, procedures (if used, SID/STAR/ILS approaches) on your first flights.

I am just testing Twin props MSFS [2020] with good overall results so far. Some flights on-line some off-line to MSFS servers.

I have now spent a week on MSFS and there is no doubt as I said before that the graphics is outstanding. I have now flown various aircraft and am not impressed with the following:-
1) No reverse thrust on jetliners
2) Nose wheels (gear) do not turn left or right
3) cannot open doors or baggage holds
4) some switches in the cockpits are not functional

there are a few more but not that important, so as I said before, again.....this is for X-Box and made to look very pretty and not a flight simulator as such. I am really hoping that Lockheed Martin will intergrate this use of true earth maps and topography into P3D. P3D will then be in my opinion just...PERFECT.

Couple questions:

Does P3D have jetliners with baggage doors and reverse thrust?
Does P3D have some switches INOP?

Did you fly MSFS aircraft on full flights using flight plans/ navdata SID, STAR and approaches?

When you say MSFS {2020] is not a flight simulator what are you comparing it to in your real life experience?

Have you heard what real pilots (with pilot's licenses) have to say?
Example:
Read what David Womacks CFI,CFII,MEI answers this :

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/5865 ... ocking-up/


“On 10/6/2020 at 12:00 PM, Pegaso said:
Seems many people still believe that MSFS2020 is/will be what its name says. It's a scenery simulator in some points of Earth - not flight at all....”


“Ok then enjoy the 2006 era graphics and horrible performance of P3D and FSX....... I’m a 2000+ hr commercial pilot and MSFS has way better flight dynamics than P3d or fsx the only sim that beats it is XP11 but the graphics of MSFS make up for that.. Now back on topic,I would report the issue to the Zendesk

@ Uriah ,

You mentioned:
Posted 27 Aug 2020:
“Now that I have FS2020 setup and working, I will say that the graphics and colours of the scenery is outstanding. It is very very good but I hate the interface and it is difficult, beyond difficullt to get the controls similar to what we are all used to...or myself for that matter am used to.”

Posted 10 OCt 2020:
“I have now spent a week on MSFS and there is no doubt as I said before that the graphics is outstanding. I have now flown various aircraft and am not impressed with the following:-”

1) No reverse thrust on jetliners
2) Nose wheels (gear) do not turn left or right”


So, your setup of MSFS [2020] the reversers and Nose Wheel Steering is INOP ?
Possibly your hardware has problems or is not configured (Controls) or not approved for MSFS [2020].

Got a couple screenshots for you.
This is what I see and is operational on my flights.
