functional 3D INS

Most likely yes.

and/or FMS and TCAS?

The 707 with FMS? God no)
She is too classic even for TCAS.

Ok, FMS was maybe used in the very late cargo birds by Challenge Air Cargo. But TCAS they had Smiley
And if your other aircraft come with 3D INS and TCAS would be great  Cheesy

To CaptSim Team:
I really, really like flying your products in FSX and am looking forward to the B52, 707, 727, 767, 757, 777 for P3Dv4... in that order.

I've only ever flown 10 hrs in a Cessna 172 in RL, however flying  the B52 is like what I would imagine a huge lumbering monstrosity of an airplane would fly like (my vivid imagination probably helps a little also!).  One must think way ahead of the airplane; you capture that very nicely!

The 707 and 727 have their own unique "feel". 

The 757 and 767 are great trouble-free aircraft to fly.

Your 777 is my modern aircraft of choice to fly.  It's a little glitchy.  First it was the AP now it overspeeds uncontrollably in AT/VNAV; I have to control it manually.  Problem showed up for no reason and suddenly... no new addons, nothing else changed.  Submitted to support.  I have no doubt that will be resolved eventually.

Anyway, Thanks and keep up the good work.

Walter

For the L1011, TCAS was used on the aircraft eventually so having this as an optional feature would be very helpful. Also, DME updating in the INS would be a great feature since it's one of the features that makes the INS a challenge.

Having an aircraft in a "stock" configuration is nice to capture the original look of the aircraft but it can result in customers quickly loosing interest. Bare in mine that many people fly on VATSIM and other networks and an aircraft without TCAS and other more modern features that were eventually fitted to the 737, 727 and L1011, would make the aircraft more appealing to fly.

For the 707, the most modern equipment fitted to this aircraft was perhaps INS, or later basic Bendix GPS units along with TCAS. I would liketo see a model in the 707 that has dual INS instead of the doppler which not too many may be keen on using.

3D INS in the 707 is a must.

I would love to see the 727 get a major overhaul with modelling and textures up to the standard of the 737/777/L1011. It desperately needs it, because it's definitely showing its FS9-era age now.

Hey CS guys! I'm new to Captain Sim, and I was just checking on the compatibility list for v4. While I may not have any experience with CS products, I did find it a little shocking that I didn't see your 757 product even crack your top 5. With no plans from QualityWings on keeping their 757 up to date, I do not believe there is a single 757 available for Prepar3d v4, so I am really looking forward to trying out the CS 757. Please give us an update on this aircraft as soon as one is available!  Smiley

And a fix for the 777-300 paint kit

What exaclty pls?


Sorry for the delay in my response. Painting the 773 fuse is quite a challenge (at least for me) as the file CS_773_4_t.psd is a puzzle to fit to the adjacent texture files CS_777_1_t.psd for the fore section and CS_777_3_t.psd for the aft section. A single, complete fuse PSD file for both models (and the Freighter too for that matter) would be the ideal (that's my point). I think there might be more repaints/repainters of the 773 if that would be sorted. I know there's a few chaps who've repainted this bird in the 773/W model, but I've seen it drop off recently. Now even UAL now flies a 773, but no repaint from anybody not even the prolific CS 777 painters like Garrett Rowley. Anyway, I'd sure repaint it, but it's a bit of a challenge. There are a lot of 773/77W operators, but not many CS repaints. There are more in the 772; that might be an indication of the same challenge on the repaint side. More repaints might translate to more buyers/fliers.

Respectfully,
Jeffrey S. Bryner

If I were to add a quick suggestion for the L1011 and 707 (more so the 707), I would also be a nice feature to have a Virtual Flight Engineers who you can assign to control the fuel management of the aircraft. This is very useful for very long flights where fuel management is a must.

My reason for suggesting this is that typically I find myself flying mostly shorter flights because of the fact that I have to be around to manage the fuel system. While I enjoy doing it, I've found that I don't really get to utilize the 707 for longer flights. As an option, perhaps it would be a good thing to add a virtual flight engineer as an option that can be turned on or off.

On the INS topic, one of the major features that makes the use of an INS so unique is the DME updating feature. Will this be added to the CS INS unit? that would be a huge improvement to the overall flying experience. While on the topic of INS, I'm not sure of how many use the Doppler unit, but for those like myself who prefer the INS, can there be an option to have 2 INS units in the Virtual Cockpit? This option might be a bit more realistic to what you would find during the pinnacle of the 707 era of jet travel.

On the topic of TCAS. While CS does an outstanding job on recreating the original look of an aircraft, please keep in mind that realistically we tend to fly/use these products in a modern setting and especially so when flying on VATSIM. So while having the normal VSI is good, perhaps as an option a TCAS unit can also be utilized by those who would rather fly a 707 that is reminicent of how their cockpits were setup during the late 80s/ early 90s.

One more observation.....both the L1011 and 707 could use a bit of improvement in the engine startup. The engine start sequence for those engines seem to be a bit too quick once fuel is introduced (especially so with the L1011). After looking at a few Just Planes DVDs featuring the 707 and L1011, it is noticable that the engines take a little more time to start up and stabilize. Finally, sound immersion has come a long way over the past 5 or so years and it would be nice to see some improvements here also. The cockpit environment is filled with sounds of avionics, bleed air, fans, electrical hum and more. Some developers have been able to recreate this and everyone loves it. If possible, perhaps this can also be looked at?
