Quality Wings 757 departing KJFK. After this week's video postings I need to consider my addiction speech. LOL

Hi Simeon,

How does the QW 757 fly compared to the Captain Sim? I understand it has a working FMS where CS has a black square... and the plane you flew seemed to be a -300, correct? Does the QW version have both -200 and -300?

Just a few things about the video (which was very good, BTW):

* Before pushback, the aircraft beacon should be switched on (surprised you didn't have AES)

* Don't turn on the taxi lights during pushback, it'll be blinding to the tug drivers. Better switch them on once you have taxi clearance and you begin to move

* I see that JFK Tower had you on the roll close to rotation speed while instructing that UPS 1126 Heavy to go around on your same runway. Did your TCAS start to scream? (Your takeoff speed and his landing speeds would have been close, but he was coming up behind you while you were climbing less than 1 mile ahead of him!)

* Your aircraft was a -300 with winglets. The aircraft landing at Charlotte was a -300 without winglets. Just curious.. :D

B,
Thanks for the comment, if you think that had anomalies you should view the other one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkM6Vw1dgTQ You have been the 1st to catch the slight anomalies within the video, although there is one that you missed for the takeoff roll in the cockpit (look at the altimeter)...LOL. I have some internal issues with hardware that need modifying. Since I use GoFlight equipment the coding is a bit different than what I have setup...so my beacon would not work with the assigned switch, instead I got taxi lights. I will have to build a new profile for this 757, It'll get sorted out soon, provided I can get away from the wife who is not very open to me spending much time with the machine right now :roll: :cry:

Regarding the TCAS screaming during the takeoff roll, that was not the case since I did not turn it till 500 feet due to the heavy traffic I had loaded.

The departure and landing aircraft are different due to 2 separate clips. I did not get a chance to finish the original flight and luckily I had a clip of a landing going into CLT, so I just added it.

AES - I have been promising to get into it but , just never got around to it. from what little research I have done it appears that it can become a rather expensive utility. Wife is watching the spending that I do like a hawk

Quality Wings I have found to be an enjoyable package right out of the electronic wrapper. Based on their slogan "Complexity Simplified" - it is just that. There are two modes normal and lite, to be quite honest I have not really done much reading of the manual, since I bought this about 1 day before the Islander testing began. So I am trying to become familiar with her now, I have been doing more flying by trial and error...he he.

What I liked about the package was that it comes with all variants of the 757 for one set price of $44.95. Here is a copy of the spec sheet.
