    Which MCP should I get?

    Hi everyone.

    I have started expanding out my FSX setup and am looking to invest in a MCP panel.

    I used FSX on Windows 7 (64bit) and fly mainly the PMDG 747 and ocassionaly the Captain Sim 757 and Wilco 737.

    I have come across the following panel and not too sure which I should go for:-

    1. Opencockpits 737 MCP
    2. Go Flight 737 MCP PRO
    3. Aerosoft 747 MCP (I can get one second hand)
    4. CPFlight MCP 747 (very expensive but does have EICAS)

    I seem to be steered towards either option 1 or 2 but would really like a MCP based on the 747 but the CPFflight one is too expenseive (650).

    I also understand with some of the above MCPs I have to spend $80 on flight sim labs drivers. Is this the case for alll of the above?

    I would be interested to hear your feedback and suggestions.

    If I have missed any of the list thatI should consider then please do let me know.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Re: Which MCP should I get?

    I would've reccommended the Opencockpits one... But they are not refunding my 747CDU that doesn't work with my PC that I CLEARLY sent back... VERY annoyed!

    As for drivers... Depends what you want to use. FSLabs have a driver for pretty much all of them apart from the O/C one. The GoFlight Unit is pretty Flexible in terms of compatibility.
