    Flightdecksoftware

    I've been testing with Flightdecksoftware for a few days and it looks very promising. This is after I got annoyed when I discovered not even the autobrake function works in PMDG, let alone the sixpack I just bougt. PMDG keeps all the offsets secret and only shares them with manufacturers of the more expensive parts. If you use Opencockpits, like me, and you want to have the flexibility to program your own interface, it's frustrating to see that the offsets are not documented.

    With Flightdecksoftware it's different. They have disclosed all offsets and also there are Opencockpits SIOC scripts for everything. The complete suite is 499, including instructor station. Ok, the instructor station is still basic but I figure they develop faster than I can build my pit.

    I know the owner is reading here too, so Bart forgive me for asking a second opinion here . Anyone experience with this suite to recommend it (or not)?

    Re: Flightdecksoftware

    Hi

    If you have not done so already, I suggest you also test the sim-avionics 737 suite. You can then get a good comparison on facilities, relative costs etc. Their manual is extensive and very informative

    Regards
